The likely color outcome of Dark Brown Hair Dye on different hair colors:
- On very light colored gray or white it is likely to be more of a light brown with one application but you can build up the color with a second application.
- On light or medium brown it is likely to result in a dark brown.
- On already dark brown then it is likely to darken it to an even darker brown.
- If your hair is a mixture of brown and white, then it is likely to be an average effect, with the white hair going lighter brown and the dark hair going darker brown.
Because everyone's hair is different in terms of their initial hair color and their individual hair structure and chemistry, and will take the color slightly differently. It is impossible to precisely predict the color outcome. For this reason we recommend strand testing before putting the color all over your hair.
Full instructions are enclosed in the pack. The following is a summary:
Mix the powder thoroughly with warm water to a smooth paste. Apply the paste to your hair in sections and leave on for 1.5 to 3 hours. The longer you leave the paste on your hair the darker the color result will be.
The color will deepen over a few hours as it oxidises
When you initially rinse out the color it may not be the full strength of color. It will darken as the color oxidises gradually over a few hours.
If you have used henna and indigo before you will understand that after washing it out of your hair it takes time for the color to oxidise on your hair.
On very light colored or light gray hair it sometimes appears to be have a green tinge at first, but don’t panic - this will fade gradually over a few hours or days, as the dye oxidises and the color deepens.
It is not recommended to use chemical bleach on hair that has been dyed with a herbal hair color containing indigo, unless it has faded or grown out. This is because bleach will not remove indigo so you may possibly be left with a bluish color. If you do want to try it please strand test first.
If it is the first time you have used this hair color we fully recommend doing a strand test first before putting the hair color all over your hair, because the color outcome can vary depending on each person's hair. We also suggest waiting 24 hours after the strand test to see how the color develops, because the color will oxidise over time and strengthen.
You may experiment with mixing different shades of It’s Pure Organics Herbal Hair Colors together, to get your own unique shade. However we do recommend you strand test first as we cannot guarantee the outcome of your own combinations.
