     Q: I am not sure of my allergies, is this product safe for me to use?

    A: This hair dye is made with henna and other plant based ingredients, it is 100% natural and safe to use, however, someone people may be allergic to plant based products as well (peanut allergy is one of the examples), so to rule that out, please do a strand and skin test prior to full application. 

    Q: I am severely allergic to chemical hair dyes, can I use your dark brown henna?

    A: Yes as mentioned above, this product is made with natural ingredients, so its safe to use, however doing a strand/skin patch test prior to use is highly recommended.

    Q: Can I use henna on hair that have previously been treated with chemical hair dyes?

    A: Henna can be used on hair that have previously been dyed with chemical hair dyes, however, grey coverage or desired color may not be achieved as fast as someone trying on virgin hair. You may have to apply henna at least couple of times to get desired color.

    Q: Why two step process? can this be used as one step application as well?

    A: Yes, it can absolutely be used as one step process, we highly recommend two step process for first time henna users, as grey coverage is better with two step process.

    Q: Is dark brown henna 100% natural?

    A: Yes, our dark brown henna is made with 100% natural & plant based ingredients.

    Q: How long does the henna hair dye last?

    A: Once your hair get used to henna, dye may last between 2-4 weeks, depending on your hair types. You can use our henna aftercare hair oils to keep the color for longer.

    Q: Why dark brown henna leaves a little bit of brownish tint in my hair.

    A: Since henna naturally contains red color, we use indigo powder with henna powder in our formula to get darker color. Individual results may be different depending on the experience with henna, hair types and how your hair get along with henna. Brownish tints can be colored over by using only the dark brown application.

    Q: Why is this a two-step process? 

    A: The two-step process gives better results than the one step (especially if you are a first time henna user or have lots of gray hair). The dark brown powder contains indigo powder, which gives the dark brown color. Indigo needs a pure henna base to work off of in order to color properly, otherwise you’ll get strange colors like green (on light hair/grays), or blue/purple tones. 

    Q: Can I do this in a one-step process? 

    A: You can do this in a one-step process. To do this, you would still mix the two powders separately as they have different activation times (8-10 hours for the pure henna, 30 minutes for the dark brown). Once each mixture has activated, mix the two together, then apply to your hair and let sit for 3 hours

    Q: Why is there more dark brown powder than henna powder? 

    A: You really just need pure henna on your grey hair vs dark brown all over your hair.

    Q: Can I buy the dark brown by itself? 

    A: Unfortunately, dark brown is sold as a pack. (100 grams dark brown 50 grams pure henna) It is not sold separately due to the two- step process of the dye.

    Q: Will this cover my grays?

    A: Yes, this will cover your grays. Be aware that grays are incredibly stubborn when it comes to being colored as they are texturally different than normal hair, and dryer as well. It may take a couple applications to get the grays to take to the color. 

    Q: My grays are still red. What do I do? 

    A: You can reapply the dark brown powder to your grays, mixing the powder with black brewed coffee and a teaspoon of salt. This should help the grays accept the color and darken to the brown shade you’re looking for. Since your hair is already red, you do not need to reapply the pure henna over the grays.

    Ingredients and How they work:

    • Henna (Lawsonia inermis): Does it really need an introduction?  Ok then, its a green powder that is made from the leaves of henna plant, naturally it contains red/ orange color, In addition to acting as the the base,  it also provides the hair with superb conditioning power.
    • Indigo (Indigofera tinctoria): Indigo powder is a blue toned ingredient that I again milled from leaves of indigofera tinctoria, When mixed with the red tones of henna, it can provide a range of browns and blacks depending on the ratio of the two powders. Dark brown henna hair dye is made because of the combination of this important ingredient with henna.
    • Amla (Phyllanthus emblica): In order to darken and help elongate the color, we add in amla. This special ingredient comes from the Indian gooseberry and makes the henna hair dye process more valuable.
    • False Daisy (Eclipta alba): False daisy helps enhance the henna hair dye effect by adding gloss and revitalizing the hair with its repairing and reconstructive properties.
    • Neem (Azadirachta indica): Naturally deep condition your hair and scalp as the henna hair dye is working its color magic on you. Neem provides condition properties that can improve the overall look and feel of your hair.

    Instructions in below video are shown for a 2 step application process, however for experienced henna users, one step process may work well as well. To get maximum coverage, we recommend two step application process.

    Tips and Notes:

    Helpful Tip: Please use two step process for optimal results, you can use color safe, sufalte & paraben free shampoo after 48 hours of rinsing henna. It helps with getting the color stick to hair better and prevents color wash up.

    Safe to Use

    I was hesitant to use any chemical dyes on my hair after undergoing a transplant. My friend suggested trying out natural henna dyes from The Henna Guys and it worked wonderfully. The deep brown shade I got is just what I wanted, and it made my hair smooth as well. What I love most about this dye is that it did not cause any harmful effects from using it.

    Superb Hair Dye

    I have been using products from The Henna Guys for months now and everything I have tried is excellent in terms of quality and price. I bought the Dark Brown dye recently and it turned out amazing. Not only did it cover my grey hair, but it gave my hair shine and the prettiest deep brown color. It also made my hair soft and smooth, and reduced hair fall as well.

    Thick and Wavy Hair

    My hair is thick and wavy, and I love it. I was afraid to use any chemical dyes on my hair, so I tried this henna dye. My hair retained its texture and thickness after applying the henna. It added shine to my hair, and I love the deep brown color it gave me. I’m glad I used this product instead of any other dye.
