The likely colour outcome on different hair colours
The resulting colour outcome after using this hair colour does vary on different people's hair as it depends on your individual hair structure and chemistry, and the colour of your hair before using it.
On very light coloured grey or white hair it may of an auburn colour.
On dark blonde to light brown hair it will be less auburn and more of a warm brown.
On medium brown hair the colour will less noticeable as on lighter hair colours (but if you have grey strands it should colour them with a highlight effect).
If your hair is a mixture of light to medium brown and white, then you will get an average effect, with the white hair going more like auburn highlights and your brown hair being a richer brown.
On dark brown hair this colour will probably not show up.
Leaving the paste on for a longer time will make the colour stronger. If you want a deeper colour you may also build up the colour with a second application.
Although we do our best to formulate this hair colourant so that you get a good colour, we cannot guarantee the precise colour outcome because the colour may be different on different people’s hair. For this reason we strongly recommend that the first time you use a hair colour you do a strand test on a small section of your hair before putting the dye all over your hair, We also recommend waiting 24 hours after the strand test to see how the colour develops, because the colour oxidises over time and darkens.
Full instructions and tips are enclosed in the packet and the following is a brief summary:
The powder is mixed into a paste with warm water and then pasted on to your hair in sections. It is left on for 1.5 to 3 hours before washing off. The longer you leave it the darker the colour will be. You may apply the paste with an applicator or tinting brush but we recommend using just your gloved fingers to apply the paste.
The true colour takes a few hours to develop
When you first wash out the colour it will often not be the full depth of colour but it will gradually darken to its true colour
If you have used henna and indigo before you will understand that after washing it off your hair it takes time for the colour to oxidise on your hair. It can be likened to a cut apple - at first it the apple is white and then as it oxidises in the air it goes brown.
