  • Note: Treatments peak after one hour. Colors deepen up to two hours.


  • Rinse out thoroughly (no shampoo) until all product removed. Then use conditioner.

  • 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.

    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’~

    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.

    The reason I didn’t like this henna was primarily my fault. I started off with bleached hair and about 4 1/2 inches of my natural medium brown root growth. I was trying to just let my brown hair grow out to at least my shoulders and then chop off the blonde, but I’m very impatient and my hair looked trashy so I bought this color thinking it would somewhat match my roots and then my hair wouldn’t look so bad. Wrong. When I washed it out it was a mix of orange and brown, but the orange/copper color showed more than the brown. I gave it 48 hours to ‘mature’ and it still looks the same! Now I look at the color chart and it does look more copper than the hair on the model, so therefore it was my fault. I’m now going to buy the dark brown and hope for he best.

    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.

    Hello and greetings. I am all about products that are cruelty free, animal friendly, save the earth- products, and love. This is the first time purchasing and using the henna light brown color dye on my hair. I had a bad hair cut this past year, so my hair is in its ‘growing out’ phase, and probably will be for at least a few more months. In the mean time, I was looking to even out the color and even color a few greys. After the application and wash out last night, I really think I will never use another brand on this hair. It was a process which was relaxing and the end result is nice. My hair was not damaged at all. It actually feels better since using this product. Thank you. I will probably re order at a later date.

    I thought it was a little odd that there were no negative or mediocre reviews on the site, but then I tried the product. It really is fabulous. I chose the light brown because I was concerned the true henna would come out too bright on my gray/white roots and previously colored light brown hair. This came out a rich warm brown and while my roots are a lighter red, they are not too bright. I used one of the hair treatments as a test run to see how best to get the “mud” on my hair without having to worry about color. I recommend doing that your first time since it made applying the actual color easier since I had practice. These are the only products I plan to use for the rest of my hair coloring days.

    Oh my goodness.
    I waited a few weeks to write my review because I wanted to see how the color developed, and I couldn’t be happier.
    I had been rockin’ some very light highlights in order to blend my brown hair with my abundance of grey, but I was noticing that my hair texture was changing from all the damage; when I put this all over my hair (I mixed with a can of warmed coconut milk) I immediately noticed a difference in how my scalp felt.
    After washing out and blow drying my hair, there was a lot of bright red (I didn’t notice any green as some people mentioned, but I have a great deal of red in my hair naturally and I was coloring over bleach so maybe that explains my color).
    Within a week, however, my hair was a gorgeous light brown that looked perfectly natural with minimal red.
    My hairstylist even asked me to write down the site so she could refer people who want a more natural color option because she thought the color was wonderful; the best part for me was when I only had to trim off a few inches of my hard earned growth (I’ve been growing out a pixie cut for what feels like a million years).
    I’m a believer and a devotee; and because of my own gushy feelings, I now get why so many people on here feel the need to qualify that nobody paid them for their review.
    Nobody paid me either.
    Thanks Henna Color Lab!
    I love you twice!

    I am so happy I tried this product! I have been coloring my hair for years and as a result have damaged my hair pretty badly. Recently my hair had been falling out and breaking off so I had decided to stop using chemicals of any kind on it which meant no more coloring. Unfortunately, my haircolor began to get very dull and had some really bad roots showing. I thought I was just going to have to live with at least a years worth of bad hair until it all grew out. Then I found this product…now my hair looks healthy and shiny! The color is amazing, a little darker than the picture but still absolutely beautiful! I can not believe that I have been using chemicals to color my hair all this time! The funny thing is, I was never really able to achieve a color that I was happy with until now. If anyone is on the fence about trying this product, let this review be the one that makes up your mind. Try this product, you won’t be disappointed and will truly love the results!!!

    I researched a lot of different companies before deciding to order from here and I am so glad I did. Typical story, damaged hair from years of chemical lightening, and I wanted to be able to color my hair but not damage it with chemicals. I started with past shoulder length chemically treated level 9 blond hair with about 2.5 inches of dark dishwater blonde roots. First, I was nervous that I would end up with colored hair which still showed my roots but that did not happen, the color applied completely evenly on roots and colored hair and looked so natural, I love it! I left mine on for over 4 hours because I really wanted to get a good color saturation. On me, it was a dark auburn for the first week, and with time has gradually came out to be a very warm reddish brown. Much more red tones than shows in the picture just as an FYI to anyone considering it. Personally I love the red tones, and I think next time I will mix half a bag of this light brown shade with half a bag of pure henna to bring out even more red but still temper it with the light brown tones. The color is rich and natural looking, and my hair felt stronger, its been a couple weeks now and my hair still feels strong. I’m very happy with it, and I will never go back to chemical dyes.

    I have medium brown hair, but the ends are much lighter. And some grays here and there. I was using another brand of light brown henna and liked it. It made my grays a dark golden blonde and gave the rest of my hair a golden glow. My previous brand was no longer available, so I had to look for an alternative and found Henna Color Lab. Did my hair today and left it in for about and hour and 45 mins not including the amount of time it took to apply it. WOW WOW WOW! Right away I could tell the overall color was absolutely gorgeous. It made my ends a little darker and blended all of the uneven color together. It is still continuing to develop and I can’t wait to see what it looks like in a day. I am a customer for life!

    This was my first Henna experience and chose Henna Color Labs after some research. I was pretty nervous that I would come out red or orange color cause my roots were gray. The rest of my hair had a Loreal Dark Blonde. My hair without color would be 80% gray. Finally today I did it and I am so glad i did! I bought the light brown and left it in for 2 hours. I did do the root touch up first as recommended in the directions. I used a carrot shaped bag to apply which made it much easier. I didn’t think it was all that hard to use at all nor did I hate the earthy smell. My hair came out a beautiful light brown with some reddish highlights, much prettier then the hair colors I had been using. I am curious if it will change much over the next couple days since this is my first experience. I am already getting my next order together and taking advantage of the special so I can try the shampoo as well. Thanks so much for a awesome product !!!

    This was my first time using Henna on my hair. It was awesome! The “light brown” color is great. It covered my gray very well. The color had a little more red than I’m used to, but only barely so. My hair is normally “light ash brown” and it was a “light warm brown” after using Henna. My hair didn’t feel fried afterwards like it did with commercial hair dyes. It took a few days for the odd smell to go away but it was totally worth it. It was very easy to apply: just add water and smear it on! It washes out easily. I intend to buy this again and stick with this product indefinitely. I highly recommend it!

    The package SAYS light brown. My hair is a dark blonde/ light brown colour naturally with some grey.

    I followed the instructions and the good thing is that this covered all my greys.

    However my hair does not look anything like this photo.

    My hair is orange.

    This photo is brown and golden highlights. This is not what I got.

    I am glad it will wash out.

    Disappointed. I really wanted the colour in this photo.

    I am highly allergic to PPD so much so that I was hospitalized for my reaction! My journey to find a product to color my hair has not been an easy one. I have been to many hair salons to find a product that is PPD free. I was shocked that about 90% of the salons I visited had no idea about PPD and the dangers it can cause! I was even more shocked that most of the products on the market do contain PPD but in lower levels and are advertised as being PPD free!!! This blew my mind that products are labeled and advertised as being PPD free when in fact they were not! This is when I began my quest to try henna and I decided to go with Henna Color Lab products and it was by far the best decision I have ever made! I chose the light brown color and I followed the directions to a T and my hair came out AMAZING!!!!! From the bottom of my heart I thank Henna Color Lab for creating this product !!!!
