Thought I'd try the dark brown on my sisters hair as she is having treatment at the mo and can't use chemical colourants. Put it on the roots disappointing coverage. And a horrid green tinge. Never in my 40 yrs hairdressing have I come across this. Not at all impressed.
Oh dear, don't worry, the green tinge should go gradually over a day or two as it oxidises (as it says in the instructions). The darker colours have a higher indigo content and this is what gives a risk of it having green tinge at first, but indigo doesnt stay green. Even if the green didnt go then you could always put another herbal colour on top with more red/henna in it. Generally for stronger grey coverage you leave the paste on for a longer time or do a 2nd application. You would not normally have this experience with chemical dyes as they work differently and are more controllable.
Pure organics very dark brown

I've been using this product for some time due to an allergic reaction to normal hair coulrants. I have to use the product twice to get the darker shade, but I'm very grey. It can be a bit time consuming, but the end result is worth it.
HI all. I am highly allergic to PPD's and found this out 10yrs ago. My head swelled up, I had weeping blisters on my forehead, my ears. Lumps in my neck. It was bad. I tried many natural hair dyes and unfortunately they washed down the drain pretty quick. I then used Lush Caca Noire henna and I cannot say this did not work because it did. However, the leave in time was minimum 4hrs and it came in a block of 6 segments. I had to take various kitchen knives to break off two pieces and then double zip lock in a bag and bash on my kitchen floor with a rolling pin. I was exhausted after then mixing it without knowing exact amount of water. and often making too runny. Anyhow, this product had the water measurements and the power mixed up beautifully without me getting cramp in my hand trying to crush lumps. I managed to get it on my hair without it going cold and the shower cap was much better than clingfilm which gave me a headache after 4hrs. I got the coverage I wanted. Perhaps more black than I wanted but I'm going to apply the red henna next time, and alternate, so I hopefully get back the reddish highlights which I got from the Caca Noire. Fingers crossed. I'm really pleased to have discovered this.
If it was too dark perhaps try the dark brown on the roots next time. Or if that is still too dark the natural brown. It may also lighten up a bit after a few washes. Be careful of applying successive applications on top of each other as the colour then build up too dark.

I have been buying this product for years now and I love it I tried a number of different products before this one and this was the best thanks so much
Very impressed! I tried very dark brown. This was my last resort to try one more hair dye i was hopeful not to react to and it does work like a miracle. I did not sense any itchiness or swelling any more. I am a extremely happy customer
I'v used the dark brown for years but recently it didn't seem to be as dark as usual so I ordered the very dark brown and I'm glad I did. The coverage is excellent and love the colour not only that, my hair is healthy n glossy too. The greys cover very well. I'm unable to use salon or box hair dye as I'm allergic so this is a godsend.
Having previously tried one of the other brands and not had much success dying dark blond hair to brown, it was recommended we try this brand. It is a little more expensive but worth the extra for the better gloves alone! That made such a difference to the ease of application. My daughter has long hair so we used 2 packets. and left it on for about 3 hours. The result was good. Her hair is now a much darker shade and she is pleased. The only things I would say is that the hair at the front of her head is slightly lighter for some reason. maybe it was to begin with. That bit also had a green tinge which we were warned might happen but that soon disappeared. This product seems to stain more than ordinary red henna which another daughter likes to use. All in all, this is a nice product, goes on pretty well and gives a good depth of colour.
