- A completely natural . 100% herb based 2-step hair colour
1. Patch Test
Although the Krya natural hair colour (as are all of Krya’s products) made completely from safe, whole herbs, a patch test is a sensible precaution to take when trying out any new skin / hair product. We strongly recommend doing this the before the first time you use the Krya hair colour product.
1. Wash a square patch of skin measuring an inch in height and breadth on the inside of your elbow, or a small round spot just behind your ear. Wash this area well and dry it with a clean cloth . Make a thick paste of the Krya hair colour in water and apply it on the patch test area. Leave it on for two hours.
2. After 2 hours, wash off the colour paste with plain water.
3. Monitor this area for 24 hours. If you feel any intense burning, intense itching, or see any inflammation or redness in the area, do not use the product.
4. If you experience no adverse symptoms or if you experience very mild itchiness or irritation that subsides quickly, you may go ahead and use the product.
5. If you have used a single step krya hair colour before, this product uses a similar set of herbs as well.
2. Strand test
We strongly recommend doing a strand test before you colour your entire hair. This is because the dye uptake on your hair varies depending upon how porous it is (if you have high chemical damage), presence of metallic salts (from your water or your previous hair dye), the amount of greys in your hair, and how your individual hair responds to the plants in our hair colour.
The strand test gives you an idea of the colour you can expect from this application of hair colour.
Do Remember that as you begin to colour your hair with the Krya hair colour, the strand test results will vary. This is why we recommend doing a strand test before every application.
Choosing strands for your strand test:
We recommend choosing strands that are easy to isolate, yet will remain hidden under your hair to keep your results discreet. Choose a section of hair that has the same proportion of greys as the rest of your hair. We recommend choosing a 2-inch section of hair. Apply your Krya hair colour exactly as recommended to this section of hair in 2 steps. Leave it on for 2 hours and then rinse with plain water. The Krya hair colour shades take between 24 – 48 hours to develop. If you are satisfied with how the colour looks a day later, you may proceed to applying the colour for your complete head of hair.
