Colouring Grey Hair Dark Brown

HomeHelp Centre
We recommend the powder hair dyes for getting a dark brown on the grey hair. If you have a lot of white hair it will probably be a bit lighter than dark brown. Where you have brown hairs it will darken the brown hairs.

I would recommend trying the following:

It’s Pure Organics Herbal Hair Colour Dark Brown
It's Pure Dark Brown is a popular hair dye. It tends to be a light to medium brown on white/grey hairs. If your hair is a salt-and-pepper mix of brown and white, then you will tend to get an average effect, with the white hair going lighter brown and the dark hair going darker brown.

It’s Pure Organics Herbal Hair Colour Very Dark Brown
it's Pure Very Dark Brown is similar to the It’s Pure Dark Brown but a slightly darker and cooler than the Dark Brown.

If you found It’s Pure Organics Dark Brown or Very Dark Brown wasn’t strong enough for you I would suggest using pure organic henna and pure indigo as this gives a stronger result:

It’s Pure Organics Pure Henna and Indigo
To get a dark brown you would mix something like 2 parts indigo to 1 part henna
Our Pure Organic Henna and Indigo packets can be purchased here

Everyone's hair is different in terms of your initial hair colour, and the structure and chemistry of your hair and reacts differently to different colours. So it is impossible to predict exactly how the colour will be on different people’s hair. For this reason we always recommend strand testing before putting it all over your hair. See this article here about how to strand test:

If you want to try some of these dyes before dying your whole head, we sell testers of all of them, so you could do some strand tests.

Here are the links to see the tester sizes of some of them:

Henna Tester
Indigo Tester

Dark Brown Tester
Very Dark Brown Tester

If you have a lot of grey at the temples the grey tends to be resistant and it may not give a very strong coverage there.
