Is this Product Safe to use in Pregnancy?
Our product is 100% Certified Organic with NASAA and is made from botanical ingredients such as plant leaves and berries. If you are concerned, have never used this product before, have had complications or suffer from any medical condition during your pregnanacy we recommend you print out our ingredients list and consult your health care professional before using this or ANY natural product.
Is this Product VEGAN friendly?
YES it is!!!
We are made from only plants. Our products are definitley NOT tested on animals.
How long will the colour last?
Our colours are semi-permanent and the rich colour will last 4 to 6 weeks before fading. Our lighter shades of colour such as sun shadow may fade more than our darker shades such as chocolate shadow.
Once you have used Desert Shadow consistently for a while (4 – 6 months) you will find that the colour builds up to a beautiful, deep, permanent shade.
Repeated use will see your colour become richer and in some cases darker. Once you achieve the colour shade you like, simply apply to the roots only and do a full application every 4th or 5th time to boost the colour at the ends.
After longer term use, the colour may not completely fade from the hair especially if your natural colour/regrowth is a lot lighter than the Organic colour chosen. For this reason we do not recommend our colours for people who like to change from dark to light or anyone who is considering going blonde in the near future as our plant dyes are amazingly strong and like to stay in your hair.
Does this Product contain PPD, Peroxide, Lead or Aluminium?
This product is made from 100% certified organic botanical ingredients. This means it contains only the plants natural components some of which are derived from the soil they grow in. Our plants are tested for heavy metals with each new crop and no chemical ingredients are added to our colours EVER.
I am allergic to regular hair colours. Can I use this product?
This product is made from plants and contains no added chemicals that your regular hair colours have. For this reason it is a safe alternative for people who suffer from PPD allergies or other allergies as a result from using regular hair colours. We do recommend you first perform a skin sensitivity test before full application to make 100% certain this product is right for you. Even natural products may irritate some people. Severe reactions are rare but can happen. If you have any concerns, think you may be allergic or have had a reaction to similar products in the past please contact Desert Shadow.
Can I use this product over previously coloured hair?
You can use this product over previously coloured hair. Our colours contain no metallic salts or added chemicals.
If you have have salon treated hair or have used chemical dyes in the past and have never used this product before, it is important that you do a strand test before fully applying this Organic Hair Colour, to ensure you will achieve the desired shade and conditioning effect you are wanting. 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. Ensure you follow all instructions and steps including wrapping the tested hair to create a warm and moist environment. See strand test instructions (link above) for full detailed steps.
Can I use another hair colour product over this colour?
If you intend to lighten, bleach or colour your hair blonde in the future, we do not recommend you use this or any product containing natural Indigofera tinctoria or lawsionia inermis leaf.
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. Ensure you follow all instructions and steps given by the other hair colour brand.
