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 be more of a light brown with one application but you can build up the colour with a second application.
If you’re your hair is light or medium brown then it will result in a dark brown.
If your hair is already dark brown then it will darken it to an even darker brown.
If your hair is a salt-and-pepper mix of brown and white, then you will get an average effect, with the white hair going lighter brown and the dark hair going darker brown.
Although we do our best to formulate this hair dye 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.
If the you have a lot of grey hair and it appears to be have a green tinge at first, don’t worry - this will fade gradually over a few hours or days, as the dye oxidises and the colour darkens.
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 very difficult if not impossible to remove the colour. 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.
