Please read all the information on this page before purchasing for the first time.

These completely natural liquid hair colourants contain 100% natural plant based dyes enriched with nourishing natural antioxidants, bioflavonoids, vitamins, and minerals.

This natural medium brown hair colour is suitable for darkening light brown to medium brown hair and also hair with stripes of grey if you want to blend your grey.

These colourants will last for 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 Medium Brown 5N
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 quite a good medium brown shade on their grey with this Medium Brown 5N colour, whilst other customers have only acheived a light shade.   The degree of grey coverage varies on different peoples hair depending on your hair structure - how porous or how resistent your hair is. It also depends on how well you follow the instructions. We have had no reports of an orange tint with this shade. 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. 

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

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 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.

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.

Good colour but....
Sunday, 3 March 2013  |  Martina

Nice colour however definitely needs a few applications to cover stubborn grey. Granted it will depend on your hair type however after I did two applications on my aunts short hair, following instructions well, you can still prominently see the grey. It will definitely need another couple of applications. Quite pricey with this in mind!

Used the Medium Natural Brown 5N today for the first time. Didn't really know what to expect but have to say am very pleased with the result. I don't have too many greys but my main concern was that using standard hair colouring products had resulted in very bleached out/gingery colouring to ends of my hair so was a little concerned that because the ends of my hair were very porous the result would be very dark. I'm happy to report that this is not the case and that not only is the colour is very similar to my original hair colour, but there are lovely natural looking highlights. Hair is soft and shiny too and no irritation to scalp which was becoming increasingly worse using other products.

I am happy with the product because it covers my grey hair well without going ginger. I do it about every 6 to 8 weeks. Some of the grey at the temples starts to come through again after a few weeks but I dont mind a little bit of grey as it looks natural. The main thing is that it covers the salt and pepper grey. The application procedure of using the hair dryer is a bit of a faff but I dont mind too much as I dont have to do it very often.

a very good product
Monday, 27 September 2010  |  Valérie

I have had this colour applied for me at a hair salon with excellent results.
It is a more natural shade for me than the very dark brown and blends gray hair very well. The hairdressers were very impressed with the results, and I have found that it lasts well for 4 to 6 weeks, even with daily hair wash, sometimes twice a day (as tested on a beach holiday last week). Perhaps it's the fact that it was applied professionally and dried under a salon hairdrier that made it exceptionally lasting, and I topped up the roots before going away, but in any case I am delighted with this product.

I have just used this product and found it to be the best I have ever used. I have about 40% grey and it has covered it beautifully. I did not find it messy and used the applicator bottle. I only used heat for the first 5 minutes as I was doing other things at the same time. I would definately buy this again.

Friday, 5 February 2010  |  Victoria

This coloured only a few of my white hairs a very very pale yellow, despite leaving the product on for well over an hour, and following instructions by a member of the act natural team. This is the second one I have bought in a different colour and both did the same thing. On a positive note it is very nice to use, and no reaction.

Friday, 22 May 2009  |  Kenna

I have mid brown hair with 10% grey. With one application it covered practically all my grey. It is an excellent colour match. I didnt use it all over my head but just applied it to the grey areas. I followed the instructions for covering grey hair and put the base and colour on separately. I have used it this way many times on the grey areas and still have some left. I am very happy with the product and I find its worth the extra money because it looks so natural and is the best all natural hair dye I have used. I also really like the natural smell of the product.
