Krya’s natural hair colour – truffle brown is a semi permanent shade. The colour gradually fades anytime between 2 – 4 weeks depending upon how fast your hair grows and the frequency of hair washing. The Krya natural hair colour is formulated with Henna which binds naturally to your hair. Therefore repeated colouring deepens the colour further, giving better coverage and a richer shade.
Every herb used in the Krya hair colour range is documented for hair use in the Ayurvedic texts. The product is therefore completely natural, completely safe and can be used even during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Important: Every person reacts differently to a given set of ingredients, even completely natural ingredients like ours. Please follow the precautions listed in “How to use” tab before every use of the Krya natural hair colour product.
Shade variations when using a natural hair colour:
Synthetic hair dyes give you an even shade by first bleaching out all existing colour from your hair and then adding the synthetic colour to your hair. This is why the colour you get after a synthetic hair colour / dye is even and the same shade is present throughout your hair.
A natural hair colour simply coats your existing hair with the shade you have chosen. The dye uptake varies depending upon the grey percentage in your hair and how your individual hair strands react to the herbs in the hair colour.
So while we have tested the hair colour on human hair swatches, you can expect slight variations in the colour on your hair. We do not expect these variations to be too different from the hair colour we have achieved. Also, depending upon the grey percentage in your hair, you can see variations in the colour across your hair. Grey hair usually is much more intensely coloured and visible – black or dark hair tends to take on the colour much like highlights or tints. These variations even out over repeated hair colouring.
