The likely colour outcome on different hair colours
The resulting colour outcome after using this hair colour does depend on the colour of your hair before using it.

If your hair is very light coloured grey or white it may of an auburn colour. 

If you’re your hair is dark blonde to light brown it will be less auburn and more of a warm brown.

On medium brown hair the colour will less noticeable as on lighter hair colours (but if you have grey strands it should colour them with a highlight effect).

If your hair is a salt-and-pepper mix of light to medium brown and white, then you will get an average effect, with the white hair going more like auburn highlights and your brown hair being a richer brown.

If your hair is dark brown then this shade may not show up a strong colour or it may make it slightly darker and warmer.

The effect of the colour if you leave it on for longer:
On light coloured hair if you leave it on for a shorter time it will be more of auburn and if you leave it for a longer time it will tend to be less auburn and more brown.

If you want a deeper colour you can also build up the colour with a second application.

Although we do our best to formulate this hair colourant so that you get a good colour, we cannot guarantee the precise colour outcome. This is because everyone’s hair is different, both in terms of the initial hair colour and different hair chemistry, and will take the colour slightly differently.

The true colour takes a few hours to develop
When you first wash out the colour it will often not be the full depth of colour but it will gradually darken to its true colour

If you have used henna and indigo before you will understand that after washing it off your hair it takes time for the colour to oxidise on your hair.  It can be likened to a cut apple - at first it the apple is white and then as it oxidises in the air it goes brown.

The full instructions and tips are enclosed in the packet the following is an overview:

Mix the powder with warm water to a smooth paste that is the consistency of yogurt. Mix very well so that there are no lumps in the paste. Paste on to your hair in sections and leave on for 1.5 to 3 hours.  The longer you leave it the darker the colour will be.

If it is the first time you have used this hair colour we strongly recommend doing a strand test first before putting the dye all over your hair, because the colour can be different on different people’s hair. If you do not like the colour it could be difficult to remove it. We also recommend waiting 24 hours after the strand test to see how the colour develops, because the colour oxidises over time and darkens.

It is not advisable to lighten your hair with chemical bleach after using this hair colour.

High quality

This mix is a very good one, if you, like me have a lot of grey hair and dont like getting orange. It gives a nice brown reddish tone which I love. The mix is easy to apply, and for me it takes 1,5 hour to get a colour.

Darker than expected

I thought ‘chestnut’ would be a lighter, warmer brown but the colour , after 2 hours wait, was much more of a dark brown. My hair feels in good condition though and my grey hairs are all coloured too.

Gent;le, esasy to use and nice colour

I have very fine hair which is short so a box of this herbaal hair colour lasts me a good few months. It doesn't fade, so it means I only have to do my roots every week- 2 weeks. I have silvery white roots along my hairline which I hate and this herbal hair colour does colour it although it is lighter than the rest of my hair colour, which you will get with silver roots. as I keep doing my roots and there is more hair growth the colour will darken, so it blends in more. The overall colour is a nice auburn which people tell me is a lovely colour. If I didn;t have some lighter bits along my part you'd never know it was coloured as it looks natural. My own hair colour used to be a sort of chestnut brown so it's a good match for my complexion and dark eyes. I recommend grey haired or greying ladies to give this herbal hair colour a go, but choose one close to what your natural colour was ( or is, if you still have plenty of your own colour). The powder is very fine and mixes up with hot water very easily. I leave it on for 4 hours to get a strong colour.
