This dark brown shade is suitable for darkening dark brown to medium brown hair. It is also suitable for hair with stripes of grey or if you want to blend your grey.  Some users have said that this colour can go almost black when applied to hair which is already a dark brown colour.

These colourants will last for up to 4-6 weeks. This hair colour has cumulative properties and can be applied several times if needed, or used to touch up roots and new growth. There is enough hair colour for two applications if you have short hair.

Covering Grey With Palette by Nature Dark Brown 4N
100% natural hair dyes do not cover grey as well as chemical dyes. However Palette by Nature hair dye does usually give good coverage of grey considering it is totally natural. Some customers have achieved a quite a dark colour with this Dark Brown 4N colour. We have had no reports of an orange tint with this shade but it can have a slight bluish tint on some grey hair. 

The degree of grey coverage varies depending on your hair structure - how porous or how resistant your hair is, and how well you follow the instructions.  A couple of applications may be needed depending on how stubborn your grey is and depending on the strength of colour required.  more info about using natural hair dyes... 

Resistant Grey
Certain hair types are more difficult to colour with natural hair dyes - such as hair which is very healthy, coarse, smooth or shiny, and certain types of Asian hair. If you have this type of hair which is resistant to the natural colourant then the colour on the grey will be a lighter colour or in some rare cases it will not cover the grey at all. There are some tips that will improve the coverage of resistant grey.

Porous Hair Gives a Stronger Colour
Certain hair types which are very porous, weak, bleached or in poor condition will absorb the colour very strongly giving a stronger, darker colour than would be expected for a particular shade.  All the more reason to do a strand test the first time you use a new colourant in case the colour is too strong for you.

It says "permanent hair dye" on the box because it is from USA but in the UK we usually call a hair dye that lasts 4-6 weeks semi-permanent. 

Scalp Staining
It is important to avoid getting the colourant on the scalp during the application as it can stain. 

For some people it can be difficult to avoid getting it on the scalp during appication. Sometimes when applying just to the roots one can put too much on and it runs down onto the scalp. 

This issue of scalp staining is a very individual thing - Some people have a problem with it staining their scalp very dark, whilst other people don't have any problem with it.  If your hair is fine, straight and flat against your head it seems to be more of a problem than if your hair is thick or curly hair.

Staining of the scalp will not harm you because it is from all natural plant ingredients and it will come off on its own eventually.  You can get it off with the natural cleanser which is included in the pack or with lemon juice.

Allergies
This product is suitable for people with allergies to normal hair dyes. A patch test is recommended before application.

Application
This product is in liquid form. It is left on for 35 to 40 minutes and requires a hair dryer to be applied for a lot of the time. Click here for Application Instruction Guide

We recommend application of Palette by Nature low pH colour shampoo and conditioner to maintain your colour for a long period of time. Use it once or twice a week.

IF THIS IS FIRST TIME YOU HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT A STRAND TEST IS RECOMMENDED BEFORE USING IT ALL OVER YOUR HAIR.

Why is this product different to other all natural and henna based Colourants?
This product is a revolutionary patent pending natural hair dye which is the result of more than 30 years of cross industrial research. This product is a more potent and a more sophisticated formulation than dry Henna based products.

Palette by nature colourants do use Henna Extract of very high purity but in conjunction with other super pure plant extracts and plant based CI dyes. For example, they developed their own technology of making dye Indigo Carmine CI 73015 from Indigofera Tinctoria. This represents the main principal difference of their product from other all natural hair colourants.  These products look like conventional products and are easy to use with free flowing gels, shampoos and conditioners that are all plant based.

 This type of hair colorant differs from conventional chemical based hair dyes in that it is completely free of paraphenylene diamine (PPD), resorcinol, m-aminophenol, p-aminophenol, toluene- 2,5-diamine, azo-dyes, diazo-dyes, disperse dyes, ammonia, heavy metals and parabens.

quite good product, will buy again
Monday, 23 May 2016  |  Petra

This product quite surprised me with its quality. Considering it is not chemical dye, it still formed a very nice colour on my hair. "Unfortunately" I have healthy strong hair so the grey did not cover as good as the chemical dyes (and the product description admits it) but I was totally happy with the outcome and determined to try again.

Didnt cover Grey
Saturday, 23 August 2014  |  Paula

I have tried this product a few times now as I wanted to persist to build up the colour. Unfortunately this did not cover my grey hair at all. The dye also left my hair very dull and straw like. If it covered the grey I would spend 28 every week on this but it didnt and I think the price is high. I will be sticking to my Henna and Indigo from now on to get the dark brown colour I want. It's messy and time consuming but worth it in the end.

Though product is natural and make hair soft after wash, my hair is grey as ever. I tried it twice over 2 days but still could not get any colour on my hair. Total waste of my money.

Response:

To improve coverage of grey you could try heating the bottles in a hot water bath before application, and then after applying and putting the warming cap on, try using more heat with the hair dryer.

Pallette by Nature Dark Natural Brown
Friday, 13 June 2014  |  Joetta

I'm giving this product 3 stars by way of comparison to chemical hair dyes. HOWEVER, since I'm severely allergic to chemical hair dyes this product has been an absolute godsend.

My hairdresser said that it has improved my grey hair coverage by 80%. This product is not great at covering my roots but I have very long hair and it covers the lengths incredibly well. What's more, the condition of my hair looks great... being very shiny. In addition, the colour is perfect for my once naturally dark brown hair.

I think the main problem is that following application, my hair requires 6 shampoos to completely wash the product out and as the dye is semi-permanent this process probably dilutes the dye prematurely.

Nevertheless, I have bought this product on numerous occasions and will continue to do so as it's so reassuring that I can use a hair dye with peace of mind, knowing that it will not harm me.

Good all natural product
Friday, 25 October 2013  |  Lynne

Discovered this after becoming allergic to all dyes even those which claim to be natural. My hairdresser applied this and I sat under the heat for 45 minutes as I didn't think I would be able to do it myself as my hair is very thick and shoulder length. I didn't think it had taken that well but it did lightly cover the grey and looked very natural. Best of all no irritation. Will try other products from Suvarna as the range of natural hair dyes is extensive and they really are natural! Thank you.

Finally!
Friday, 25 October 2013  |  William

I have tried most of the dark hair colour products from this site but palette by nature is by far the best for me. I have short thin hair so despite its high price tag I get several applications from this product. Yes it's messy and stains everything if your not careful but it's chemical free and the closest to my natural hair colour. It does however leave my hair dry even after using their shampoo and conditioner, but then my hair was always a bit dry anyway. I would like to try the gradual grey system for dark hair but unfortunately there is only the light system on this site. Still this is an amazing product for anyone who suffers from chemical dyes.

Bad product
Wednesday, 25 September 2013  |  Edmund

I am not happy about the product because it does not work on my gray. I specifically follow the instructions attached to the products and the result is unsatisfactory. The color stays on the scalp but not on the hair itself. I am very disappointed at Survarna product inspite of the good review I heard from the internet. I would recommend this product to anyone because of its unsatisfactory result.

Fantastic Product
Tuesday, 27 August 2013  |  Jacqui

I am severely allergic to PPD and have searched for years for a colour that does not react. Found many on the market but even though they say PPD free I've always had some reaction. Used this product approx 6 weeks ago, no reaction, covered the grey (used the instructions as described) and its only after all this time a few grey roots are coming through, the colour is still in. I have afro hair chemically straightened. My only complaint is after application it left my hair feeling course but after one wash and conditioning it was soft and shiny. Will definately purchase again.

Friday, 2 August 2013  |  Maureen

Used 4N after not using for some considerable time due to an allergic reaction when mixing two different formulas - which I had done in the past but apparently unbeknown to me something had been changed meaning that they could no longer be mixed. I am glad to say that I can now use the product which is so much easier than the Logona powders.
