Warm and sweet like winter chestnuts, Chestnut Shadow will give a beautiful warm, medium reddish brown on grey, light blonde and dark blonde hair and will add a beautiful rich warm glow to light brown, medium brown and even dark brown hair. This colour is ideal for fair to medium warm complexions, light olive complexions and people with naturally brown or red hair.
*This colour is a medium brown with stong red tones. We recommend a strand test to determine desired processing time and final colour result. Not recommended for people who wish to bleach their hair back to blonde in the future.
About Desert Shadow Hair Colours
Desert Shadow hair colour products also act as a treatment, helping to repair dry and damaged hair, leaving your hair soft and shiny.
This 100% Certified Organic formula is ideal for those who have scalp issues, sensitive skin and allergies to chemical hair dyes.
Does this product contain Henna?
This product does contain henna. Henna alone will give a beautiful vibrant red colour but when mixed with our other plant ingredients you can get shades of light to dark red as well as shades of light to dark brown. We don't call our hair colours henna, because it is not the only ingredient.
Will this product cover grey hair?
Desert Shadow colours offer effective grey coverage when the instructions are followed (see instructions inside packet).
How long will the colour last?
These colours are semi-permanent and the rich colour will last 4 to 6 weeks before fading. The lighter shades of colour such as Sun Shadow may fade more than the darker shades such as chcolate shadow.
Can I use this product after using chemical hair colours and vice versa?
You can use Desert Shadow hair colours after using standard commerical dyes. Desert Shadow recommend you do a strand test before full application to ensure you get the colour result you are after. If your hair is chemically damaged (cuticle damage) then the colour uptake may be different to usual. This means the colour may be lighter or may be the opposite and could absorb the colour more than usual.
If you intend to lighten, bleach or colour your hair blonde in the future, Desert Shadow do not recommend you use this or any product containing natural Indigofera tinctoria (indigo) or lawsionia inermis leaf (henna). If you wish to use another hair colour product which has a similar shade or darker this will be fine.
Again, it is important that you do a strand test before fully applying any other brand of hair colour to ensure you will achieve the desired result. Collect some hair from your hairbrush & use this for testing or apply to a section of your hair behind your ear or towards the back. Be sure to follow all instructions and steps given by the other hair colour brand. See strand test instructions (link above) for full detailed steps.
