EarthDye® deep red henna hair dye (formerly Harvest Moon) is deep red a brighter color on gray or light-colored hair. Deep red is an excellent conditioner and works on any hair. The darker your hair the less you will see deep red, although it is visible on black hair in the direct sun and visible indoors on browns and dark browns. Natural deep red will makes browns cherry red. You may see orange at first on white hair turning darker overnight. A second application might be required on white hair or you can mix a small amount of indigo in to darken it up. If it does bleed, EarthDye deep red can be mixed with 1 tablespoon of vinegar to help stop bleeding, but only bleeds the first shampoo. Cold rinse also helps. Ingredients
EarthDye Red (Hair or Beard)
If you want a cherry effect and you have dark hair, you might want to consider deep red mixed with red. You can also darken deep red by adding indigo. The more indigo you add the darker it will be.
Great to also use on blond highlights. If you have uneven colored hair, you will highlight results. If you want a solid color, use the corresponding color to even color and then apply deep red over it 24-48 hours later. You can also mix deep red with any color, here is an example of a deep red/burgundy mix:
Use Over Chemical Hair Dye
If you have used chemicals you need not worry. You can literally chemical hair dye and then immediately use EarthDye over the chemicals. Your hair will be instantly soft after your first shampoo. EarthDye has natural conditioners that condition your hair while it is adding color. Please remember colors might come out brighter 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. EarthDye 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.
