These extracts have been used by people for thousands of years, from Egyptian pharaohs to modern day health practitioners. Love My Hair is not just a pretty colour!

This dye is perfect for people who are not grey yet or who are less than 50% grey.

This shade contains a high percentage of indigo. Indigo is not as strong, or as predictable a dye as henna. On some grey hair types it gives the desired gentle black colour and on other types it can make grey hair a greeny/blue colour. If you like, you can experiment with mixing Herbal Soft Black with Herbal Dark brown. This combination can work well for covering grey, especially if you can sit under a salon dryer for 1-1.5 hours for the application. For quick and reliable colour coverage on very grey hair you can mix Herbal Soft Black with Ultra Low Chemical Black or Dark Brown. For more tips on covering grey see Helpful Hints.

Apply the Soft Black dye to clean, dry hair only.

As the Soft Black shade contains such a high percentage of indigo, please see the Indigo page for tips on colour coverage.

Please note that all our ingredients are grown in the ‘wild’ and are effected by things we cannot control like rainfall and temperature. Due to this you may experience slight variations in colour from time to time. Please feel free to mix the shades to find the perfect blend for your hair.

100 grams is enough to dye collar to shoulder length hair, depending on hair thickness. You can mix up half a packet if you just want to dye your roots.

Hair treatments such as highlights (bleaching), perming and straightening effect the hair structure and this in turn will effect the final colour. It is essential to do a strand test before dyeing all your hair if you have done these treatments.
