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.
its pure herbal hair colour dark brown

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.
Have used another natural dye for over 6 years with disappointing results. Found this site when usual dye was out of stock and so impressed with colour the condition and how colour has lasted. Have had lots of compliments and no allergic reactions.
I been buying this product for a few years. I am allergic to normal hair dyes I investigated and found this dye It's amazing had no bad reactions and good coverage. I am 50 now always had dark brown hair but grey coming everywhere. This works and my hair is lovely soft and manageable. You do need to leave it on for four hours not a great smell. It works thats the main thing.
