The only advantage to this over using Henna and Indigo is that it stayed on my hair for half an hour instead of the 4 hours I keep Henna on. I have never tried Henna for half an hour so it may be that would be enough anyway.
All in all I was disappointed as it costs about 4 times the price of Henna and Indigo for the same result.
Even if it does cut back the colouring time from 4 hours to half an hour, I'm not sure it is worth the extra price.
I'm allergic to most dark hair dyes and have tried many natural alternatives but I hadn't found anything suitable till now. This has given me a lovely glossy colour that hasn't faded at all after 4 weeks!
I decided to give this a go as an alternative to my usual Logona Colour Creams. I have used the ACT range once before and wasn't overly impressed but this new shade sounded good. I have to say it came out more of a dark chestnut brown/mahogany colour on me which was a bit of a shock, I have naturally mousy brown hair which I usually dye with a mixture of Nougat Brown/Indian Summer in the Logona range. I also found the ACT dye to be very messy to apply due to the very runny consistency, I managed to get it all over myself, the sink and floor, luckily I had put some old towels down as this stuff stains very easily. On the plus side the smell is lovely, like cherries and the coverage is very good but you do need to heat your hair for most of the developing time which is a bit annoying. I think in future I will stick to the Logona dyes as they are easy to apply, cheaper and don't make my hair as dark as this!
Tips From Suvarna: If the colour is too dark it can be lightened with a lemon juice rinse. It is wise to always do a strand test when using a new shade, as natural hair dyes differ on different peoples hair. The runny consistency may have been easier to handle if you had used the special applicator bottle. Mixing with 7N may produce a lighter colour.
