Black can be a 1, or a 2 step process. It comes with 1 pack of pure henna, and 1 pack of pure indigo. It will come with directions how to make black 3 different ways. If you have never used it, the only way to figure it out is to try the easiest way first. For a jet black, usually, the 2 step rule will apply, but some can use indigo by itself and achieve jet black. You can try a small area prior to the full application to see how your hair reacts. Keep in mind the 2 step is extremely rewarding and conditioning to your hair. Ingredients
How Harvest Moon Natural Black Hair Dye Works (Hair or Beard)
There are 60 shades of black, so if you are not sure what shade of black your hair is, ask a few friends or family members. Harvest Moon black blends with all blacks and will make white, red, light and medium colored hair black. If your hair is black and you want it darker, just use dark brown. If you have black hair with white or gray hair black is the correct color. Even if you have to do a 2 step, we do have some people doing the 2 steps in the time it takes to do a 1 step. Pure henna for 30 minutes, rinse then pure indigo 30 minutes and rinse.
It will, in fact, cover white and gray hair and blend naturally over any shade of black.
If you only have white root growth, then just focus on the roots and "feather" the dye in. If you have strands of gray or white, you can do your entire head and it will blend right in.
If you are all white, the color "might" come out lighter. This is not the case for everyone, more so for people who have bleached the hair white or blond. If this is the case then you might want to do the full two-step process the first time. The great news is Harvest Moon is 100% chemical-free and you can use it as often as you like. If you have white hair and it has been 24 hours after you rinse the dye out of your hair, and you do not feel it is dark enough, then you can simply do it again. The reason we say to wait 24 hours is that Harvest Moon will darken over 24 hours. Be patient.
Once you have established your color, simply do a root touch up as needed. After a month or even two months, if it fades, you can do the entire hair again. The more you use it the easier it will be and the better it will work.
Use Over Chemical Hair Dye
If you have used chemicals you need not worry. You can literally chemical hair dye and then immediately use Harvest Moon over the chemicals. Your hair will be instantly soft after your first shampoo. Harvest Moon has natural conditioners that condition your hair while it is adding color. Please remember colors might come out lighter on chemically dyed blond hair. We always recommend a strand test to see what color to expect.
Hair Growth And Curls
Your curls are safe and you will notice your hair will start to grow faster. This is perfectly normal and a healthy sign your hair is doing better. Harvest Moon will also protect your hair from the sun's harmful UV rays.
How Much Do You Need?
One package contains 100 grams or about 4 ounces of powder. This is enough to do shoulder blade length hair. If your hair is thick, you might need 1 pack and 1/4th pack mixed. Powder mixed thicker is always better than runny. So make sure you get enough to get the best results. Whatever you do not use, store in a dry cool place out of light and it will stay fresh up to one year. Unopened it is good for 4-5 years.
