With hints of coffee and warm chestnut hues, our Light Brown Hair Dye is gorgeous. A classic favorite for darker blondes and lighter brunettes.

Pure henna establishes the warm auburn base. Then we taper it back to a soft brown with some cool-hued indigo. Neem oil and additional herbs blend into the mix enough to hold back the darkest color expression, allowing a light, balanced color that’s equal parts gentle and rich. The perfect transition for a blonde looking to try a new look.

Our Henna-Based Hair Dyes Are Your Best Choice: Award-winning herbs are freshly harvested, milled, & sealed—remain rich & potent. Botanicals nourish longer. Pigments saturate deeper.

Always Cruelty-Free. Never Tested on Animals.

henna hair dye application
1. MIX & PREPARE

  • Use quart size mixing bowl per full packet (3.5 oz/100 g) and a spoon to mix.
  • Cover any surfaces that may stain: untreated wood, carpet, fabric, etc.
  • Pour powder into bowl. One packet colors/treats straight, shoulder length hair.
  • Add hot tap water (approx 120º F) gradually to the powder.
  • Add little water at a time to get an applicable paste consistency.
    (thick pudding or cake batter).
  • Prepare hair for color or treatment. Divide hair into four sections:
    front, left, right, back.

2. APPLY COLOR OR TREATMENT

  • Apply directly to towel-dried hair using gloved hand or hair dye brush.
  • Using gloved hand, scoop and apply the paste on back section (if crumbly, add water).
  • From scalp and root of hair, work evenly to top of hair. Try for complete, even coverage.
  • Methodically apply from back to front section. Take your time. Massage well into hair.
  • Work all hennaed hair into a mound on top of head. Touch-up along all hair lines.
  • When done, cover head with included plastic cap. Leave on for one to two hours.
  • Note: Treatments peak after one hour. Colors deepen up to two hours.

3. RINSE & CONDITION

  • Rinse out thoroughly (no shampoo) until all product removed. Then use conditioner.
  • Note: Paste rinse-out may take a little time. Conditioner will help removal of dried paste.
  • Blow dry hair for 10-15 minutes to accelerate natural color-changing process.
  • Remember: It’s 100% natural. No added perfumes. Earthy scent will fade after rinsing.

Avoid shampooing for 24 hours. Avoid leave-in oil-based conditioners for first week. Henna-based dyes will take up to 48 hours to express true colors and undertones. Undertones can range from light red to green to blue before fully maturing—very normal (most blend within hours). You can reapply as often as you like. It’s all natural, safe, and gentle to hair, scalp, and skin.

    This was my first time using henna and I was a little hesitant to say the least. I opted for this light brown color since I wasn’t exactly ready to take the plunge. My intention was to improve his head of hair and go back to my natural color (or at least close as possible) which is a medium brown, but with a little kick qnd spice. I started off with dark blonde hair with very light highlights in the front. It took about 72 hours for my color to reveal itself and it’s fabulous!!! After application, my highlighted hair had a green tint (I believe his can be attributed to the indigo), the rest of my hair was a dark bark brown. As the hours and days passed, my hair transformed into this warm auburn coppery color. It is gorgeous. The green tint is gone and my hair is soft and shiny. I absolutely love it!! I cannot rave enough about it. I’m so upset that I didn’t turn to henna sooner. I love this color but now I only wonder if just go full force and let the red in:) I love your product and look forward to experimenting with a few colors. The great thing is that it’s good for your hair, so why not?! Thx for such a great product.

    Wooooooohooooo!!!!

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!
    I started going gray very quickly about 2 years ago. I just turned 40 and suddenly realized I was about 30% gray. In my late teens and early 20’s I had colored my hair every color in the rainbow but I know how damaging that is––not to mention all of the chemicals. I had also tried different types of henna over the years but had never been fully satisfied with the color.

    I ordered the light brown a few weeks ago and finally got around to making the “mud pie” last night. I could not be more delighted with the color and the coverage of my gray. The color had great depth and is very similar to my real color. I feel like a new person!! Not to mention, I live in Bend, OR and do my best to keep as local as possible. Being in Portland just makes you guys that much more awesome.

    I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!! Aimee’~

    Finally,
    Since I was 16 years old I was using henna for my hair then I switched for regular coloring then henna then coloring, and now I’m 36, I realized that I need to stay on the healthy thing only, and after reading the wow reviews about this amazing henna I decided to try it ( its the second time I buy a prepared henna, I used to prepare my henna and doing the herbs i want, etc.) and Finally I got the color I want, my hair is shiny, I just add color last week so I was scared my hair will be like a piece of rock when I wash it from the henna ( it happened before when I add Lush henna and it was too hard to wash it) but thank God it didn’t happen this time, so I will keep using this henna for good.

    OBSESSED! I recently stopped putting chemicals of any kind in my hair and wanted to try henna hair dye. It smells bad (reminded me of a horse stable) and took me about an hour and a half to cover my whole head (my hair is about 4 inches past my shoulders and one package was plenty) but I LOVED the results. My starting color was a dark strawberry blonde with 2 inches of brown roots. After I finished application I waited 1 hour. It didn’t look green at all and you couldn’t tell I had roots afterwards. After 1 week my hair is a gorgeous light brown color and I just ordered 4 more packages of Light Brown! Highly recommended and very fast delivery.

    This is an excellent henna dye! I used it on my mom whose hair was grey with some white strands. She did not want red hair (pure henna turns hair red). We were both thrilled with the results. Her hair is a warm, light brown, and her white hairs are a golden color. It is a very flattering shade and is exactly what we were looking for. I did notice the slight green tint initially due to the indigo, but it was gone within 24 hours. The quality of this henna is the best I have ever used and we will be buying this shade again.

    I have blond hair and it came out very red…which I don’t mind, just not what I was expecting! It’s a very pretty color though and left my hair softer than ever. If you want a true chocolate brown color I’d try something a little darker (especially if you have light hair), but overall this is beautiful!

    I am allergic to hair dye, which used to really make me mad until I started researching how bad commercial dye is for your hair & body. I had been trying to convince myself that I was OK with the grays and whites I was starting to see. But I really wasn’t. I decided to do some research on henna, and after a lot of homework, I went for the light brown color from Henna Color Lab. This is close to my natural color, which I still basically am other than the hairline grays starting to become numerous. I took the plunge and ordered. I thought it was easy to use, and took a Saturday afternoon to myself to apply the color. It mixed up easily and I thought it went on pretty easily, too, with not a lot of mess. I took my time and could keep the drips to a minimum. I left it on for two hours and then rinsed and conditioned as directed. My hair felt so soft and my scalp did not itch at all. I was SO pleased with the resulting color, which basically matched- and only slightly darkened-my natural color. Exactly what I was looking to do. I did find that I only needed about half the bag for my shoulder length hair and did have a lot left over, so next time I will only mix half. I love, love that I can make my hair look better and feel better about how I look in a healthier way. Thank you!!

    Super easy to use (more so than the Lush blocks I’d previously tried), mess notwithstanding! Nice earthy smell, makes me feel like a greenwitch as I’m slopping the paste all over my head. This conditioned my hair (somewhat damaged from years of dyeing) beautifully — feels shiny and strong! I was surprised that this color went QUITE red on my ash-blonde hair, however — I’d hoped for something a little more chocolate or caramel brown. Instead, has gradually faded to a flattering but unexpected auburn.

    I started out with a dark strawberry blonde with a few highlights in the front and I came out with a brown color with red undertones. It’s a gorgeous shade. The smell is kind of hard to get out of your hair and I didn’t have any blue or green undertones at all. I love it.

    I ordinarily have medium ash brown hair. This turned it very dark and very red, but it faded out to a pretty flattering auburn. This is much smoother and easier to use than the Lush henna. I’m going to keep using this, but will probably only keep it on for a fraction of the time.
