Our Select Harvest™ Henna makes a great base for this color, while indigo and added herbs taper back the deepest red and leave a warm, auburn finish.
By mixing extra natural conditioning agents (alma and shikakai), we can stabilize the red & brown pigment release to make a vibrant rusty-brown hue. For more application instructions, how to spot test, and gray root process go to our detailed application page. My hair feels amazing, I decided to use this product because I have gone shampoo and conditioner free for the passed year and I didn’t want to smear chemicals all over my head when I was feeling sassy and wanted a change (it would completely defeat the purpose of going shampoo free) so I tried this and it gives rich color and highlights, the only thing is that it is a lot darker than I expected.
Okay, first off my hair is naturally ashy blonde but I always thought I looked better with darker or red hair. For as longs as I remember I’ve had scalp issues dandruff, itching, and greasy hair within 12 hours of washing. If you section your hair into small sections with sections on the back and each side and start with the back. Wait at least a few days before you bawl your eyes out because you hate the color and either shave it off or run the the salon for them to get rid of it. I am by far no expert so I suggest you talk to one if you have questions concerns or problems relating to henna before doing anything too drastic that can’t be undone. I used the proper temperature of water and made a paste that was about brownie batter consistency.
I suppose it is mostly my fault because I did choose to apply this dye to my hair, and it did add more red.
I’ve been chemically dyeing my hair red for probably 20 years, and I HATE how fast the chemical color strips out of my grays around my face.
My gray roots are a LOVELY shade of bright auburn, but it turned the rest of my hair a dark brown, almost black.
I ordered 4 packages of auburn in the Super bundle along with a single package of the ginger blonde.
Until now, my hair stylist (a family friend of mine) hadn’t seen henna in a while, and I’m glad I could take my henna to her, because it definitely reduced the mess!! Wine red is the darkest red in our collection: even a shade or two darker than straight henna, few to no brown undertones, it’s pure deep red. The henna binds right to the hair shaft, and becomes one with your natural color and highlights. Ingredients: natural henna, red clay, false daisy, centella leaves, myrobalan seeds…(that’s it).
I would say that my results were atypical only due to my combination of black roots, red middle and blondish ends….but I love it! While dying hair with henna does take a lot more time than typical hair dye, I enjoyed the experience!
To rinse, I put my head, upside down, under my bathtub faucet first before I tried to shower; I was able to get most of what was on the back of my head out that way, making the showering much easier!
If you want incredible amazing hair that has a gorgeous color you can’t get anywhere else use this product.
Thank you Henna Color Lab for a product that I am so over the top happy exists on ALL levels of your company. I have been recently switching to all natural and cruelty-free stuff, and beginning to go vegan which is such a healthful way and shows compassion completely to animals (anything for them!), and I think it kind of starting with looking for an organic hair dye.
I had never used henna before and had long brown hair with gold highlights and some grays here and there. I stopped using commercial hair dyes because I had a weird reaction–my tongue went numb when my hair got wet. Despite the color fallout, I am back to order more–the quality and color is just that good. This was my first time dyeing and now that I know that henna is good for you hair, I’ll try gladly try more products from this site! I’ve been dying my hair red for many years and know how annoying the upkeep is and how quickly red will fade. Instead of mixing the henna with water, I too used a can of coconut milk and then water to achieve the texture as specified in the instructions.
I have naturally medium to dark brown hair, with a couple of bleached tips from a dyed streak back when I had a pixie cut. Color Note: Very light hair (gray to blonde) may require two applications for richest black color—may come out Dark Brown initially. It took the right combination of Indigo and Henna to create this deep ebony classic. Indigo fights for the dark reflective cool shades, while henna battles for the vivid auburn warm notes.
Quick Note: Very light hair (gray to blonde) may require two applications for richest black color—may come out Dark Brown initially. This is my first henna experience and ill be a believer for life and also of henna color lab. I was really skeptical about the henna first because I always have hard time covering my grays. A few months ago I used a product from an Etsy seller that had henna in it, but it also contained lots of other strengthening herbs and oils (which made it super runny). I did like the way it mixed very smoothly with distilled water, but my hair is now SUPER dry. I have been using this mixed 1:1 with dark brown henna to cover my 20-30% premature grey hair since almost a year and I have been very satisfied. I can’t imagine using henna for that much premature for a very long term basis but that is general statement for any Henna mainly because it is little more cumbersome than say semi permanent dye and it does start to wash off sooner. It colors fairly well in about 2 hours of leaving on and most importantly the way these things fade, it makes for a much easier transition and even if you miss your schedule, it would end up looking much more natural.
I have used couple other brands of Henna that did not cover as well as this so this is definitely superior. My hair is dark close to black and my daughter’s hair are dark too but lighter then mine. The penny-colored highlights reflect to a toasty auburn-orange in direct light—simply smashing. Ingredients: natural henna, natural indigo, false daisy, centella leaves, myrobalan seeds, beleric seeds, red clay…(that’s it). Natural henna, natural indigo, false daisy, centella leaves, myrobalan seeds, beleric seeds, red clay…that’s it. On my natural hair journey, I wanted to do something different but natural organic and sticking to the no chemicals regimen I had been on for 6 months.
Depending on your natural hair color and how long you leave it on will almost certainly determine how red it is!! I have medium to dark brown hair naturally and this definitely made my hair a dark burgundy color more so than a copper.
After donating the majority of my hair, I decided to celebrate by getting what was left of my (naturally dark brown) hair highlighted blonde. Once mixed, the two bold colors are resisted just enough by the added conditioners to bind at slightly different rates. I’ve been using the mahogany color for about a year now, and was basically happy with it. I am 30 years old and have been dying my hair since high school (just because I like change and also shiny, healthy looking hair). About 4 years ago I switched to sulfate free shampoos and the greasiness and most of the itching and dandruff went away.
To make it darker I know all I have to do is another layer of henna and it will build up, which is another wonderful plus.
If you expect it to be EXACTLY the color it shows and are going to be an unhappy camper and complain you should just leave your hair alone. Then twist all the hennaed parts into a dreadlock state doing it yourself is no problem at all.
I didn’t want to try to do this myself so i took it to a professional to have her do the coloring. I have been dying my hair for almost ten years and the most recent bleaching, color oopsing left it with tons of split ends, unmanageable and a very awkward yellow blonde.(Also in the past my hair always grew fast and it literally stopped growing for like three months) The Auburn covered my hair perfectly and reinvigorated it with shine and thickness and by the third or fourth use my hair was growing fast again. I also accept that henna is unpredictable in the way it reacts with every person’s hair color. Lately I’ve been having a reaction to chemical dyes and went in search of a natural alternative. Unfortunately, the only time i attempted to dye my hair with conventional chemical dyes, my hair became brittle and fell out.
I had previously dyed it last month with the medium brown and loved it, but I’m now in the mood to add some red hues. I have nothing but good things to say about this product- I used 2 auburn for myself and my mum used an auburn mixed with the ginger blonde.


Ive never dyed all of my hair before, but previously before I used the henna, I had light brown hair with blonde ombre tips. Then the added herbs and natural treatments combine to darken down the shade by a couple notches and bring it to a dark passionate wine red. I was looking for a product that wasn’t going to be as damaging as store bought dyes while still giving me vivid color. I was looking to dye my hair but did not want to use chemical dye because I have dry hair and in the past, chemical dyes just made it worse. My hair has grown to my shoulders now, and I wanted to find a natural way to color my hair as I am now nursing. I have long hair that goes about 2in and a half above my waist when I have it on my back and thought I would need 2 packs – however, after carefully separating my hair and making sure I have covered everything, I ended up throwing away about a pack of mixture. I have been dyeing my hair some shade of red since i was a sophomore, so it is a safe assumption that I love being a redhead. So I’m going to use my own gloves going forward but the cap was definitely good to have. I absolutely LOVE the color, and get lots of compliments…some from creepy old men who stalk me in the store to comment on my sassy shade, but hey. When I schvitz during spin class, it looks like I’ve been hit with a bucket of rusty water.
I was pleased that the henna came with gloves and a shower cap, although the cap was a bit thin.
The color turned out well on the lightened parts of my hair and it even left a reddish-purple sheen on the black parts.
I have gotten so many compliments on my hair, plus it almost matches my ginger sibling’s natural red hair color! I dyed my hair two days ago, and the color showed up as a deep auburn with almost purplish burgundy undertones on the dark part of my hair! I was constantly researching different brands and actually placed an order for lush henna in black but then immediately canceled it.
I have medium to dark brown hair and the only thing the henna did was make it a shade darker. Just follow the instructions, maybe even leave in the henna longer than 2 hours, and see how it works for your own hair.
More people need to switch off of using the chemicals and try a stunning, traditional method of hair coloring which gives natural looking color and strengthens hair! And yes, I deep conditioned right afterwards for a couple of hours, with TWO types of protein free conditioners mixed together.
I then rinsed it off and put some more on some sections that I missed and slept with that..
The way we use this one step black henna is knowing it will make our hair darker and if we want more depth we are happy to do the treatment again in a week or two since it’s natural and only makes are natural curly hair more beautiful. Penny-colored highlights reflect to a toasty auburn-orange in direct light—simply smashing. I have black Asian hair naturally, and at the time of coloring it had been previously dyed auburn. And then you have the rich chocolate base, with the rusty auburn-red henna hugging the outside.
I am so glad that I decided to purchase from henna color lab (instead of trying lush’s bars) because my hair turned out wonderfully perfect, and my curls couldn’t be happier! However, there is a lot of indigo in that mix, so my hair has been getting blacker and blacker. I was hesitant to try this because I was fearful that the years of dying would turn it a funky orange (not what I wanted). The color bleeding and fading I’m guessing is connected, once the bleeding stopped so did the fading. My hair is a natural light brown with red highlights that I had never dyed before in my twenty one years of life. When buying this product remember that it is not an exact science and funny looking, cool toned red (cool is a description of shade of red). I had my hair chemically dyed a light auburn, so I went with the auburn, figuring better too dark than too light.
Recently, I went vegan and in changing over my beauty products to cruelty-free options I learned that henna is vegan and all natural!
Take the time to separate your hair into sections, ensure even coating and wipe off any dye that gets on your face, ears etc. I have used henna before so I knew it would be rather messy, I put towels on EVERYTHING and therefore my bathroom is stainless. Well, the last time I found what I thought was the perfect box color for the vibrant red I wanting, it ended up turning my already red hair BLACK. So happy to have finally found a natural hair color that doesn’t make my hair orange but is a true red. Not only was I tired of the stylists never quite getting the color right, but I was tired of how expensive it was.
Since my natural hair is very dark, the dye came out pretty subtle, but definitely noticeable.
The red is still rinsing out in the shower for me, as well , but I love the color so much that it really doesn’t bother me.
I found out that they really aren’t 100% natural and I feel the company is a bit misleading when it comes to their products. I did not get the natural black color I desired or was said to get so that was a big con for me.
Mixing and application was easy (I have shoulder length hair, straight, medium thickness, and I had some goop left over even though I only used one package… in case that helps anyone decide how many to buy!) and it rinsed more easily than the other brand I have used. It as been 3 weeks and my hair is still fabulous and a beautiful black with pretty hi-lights! The henna covered that up flawlessly:) I only gave it four stars because my hair turned out a deep neutral dark brown, not black. My hair was really soft from that so I decided to get the Henna Color Lab’s Natural Black Henna, because the color change from the other stuff was non-existent. My hair is the darkest brown with a lot of natural red highlights-this color somehow darkened it while keeping quite a bit of my natural highlights. I have natural African American hair and it loosened my curl pattern, but not much and I did not mind. It was easy to apply and thanks to the clear-cut instructions, gloves and cap that came in the package. I was surprised the first time I used it…although I really liked this color and continue to use it. After coloring, my blonde hair turned a pretty orange-copper, and my dark hair turned an interesting burgundy-red, the overall effect being a dark reddish color (which was actually really pretty). Undertones can range from light red to green to blue before fully maturing—very normal (most blend within hours).
The color is beautiful, although mine ended up much darker than in the picture shown, so make sure you look at the color result chart before you pick your color.
Due to the extra redness, I actually washed the original hair treatment out with conditioner, as advised, mixed with a nickel worth of shampoo, which lessened the red some what, and made it look more like this picture. There is also something about the buildup of indigo that makes my over-40 hair dry and frizzy. However, after i was rinsed and styled according to the instructions there was no color change :-(. At first I was very nervous to put it in my dreads, I was fearing that I was not going to be able to get all of the henna dye out, but it wasn’t all of that difficult. I have been coloring my hair at home for over 20 years now, and have tried many products – I do not find the process of using henna more grueling than others ( when you have long hair like I do any product you apply takes time and patience ), the only thing different is how long you keep the mixture on. I have ordered some more and am so ecstatic I stumbled upon this little gem of a local business and its wonderful henna mix!
I really like the undertone color, and on my bleached tips it’s a beautiful almost pomegranate red, and I hope the color builds even more with repeated applications. Using our balanced proprietary combo (and some time & natural oxidation) they blend into a beautiful deep black. The main draw for me over the other brand is that this stuff isn’t loaded up with perfumes. Also the curls are softer my hair is fuller looking which is awesome since I have been having thyroid issues and been loosing so much hair.
However, I did leave it in my hair for 15 minutes less than the recommended time, and I am in no ways an expert at DIY hair. But if you have medium to light hair I wouldn’t expect black results from one treatment.


The only thing I had a hard time with was washing it out, but they said that was to be expected.
I did use my own latex gloves, since I found the ones included in the package were not adequate for the job. I have strawberry blonde hair so this is a dramatic change, but it looks pretty and the intensity calms down after a couple weeks and looks very natural. It took almost a full week for my color to develop fully, and now it is the same color seen on the model (though my highlights are a shade lighter- it usually takes a couple applications to get bleached hair to fully accept other colors). However, the original color is also very pretty and I would recommend this product to anyone!!
I had a demarcation line between my old and new growth that was about three inches or maybe four inches. I have hair a few inches past my shoulders and I mixed half a pack of Auburn color with one pack of medium brown.
The auburn has indigo in it so the more you use it the darker it gets, so I switched to the copper which is a little more orange, but nice too. I am now going to spend the remainder of my night Googling ways to remove henna in a timely fashion.
Definitely going to experiment with some of their other colors this fall, namely the mahogany, and probably the wine red to add even MORE red goodness to the hair! My hair was dark brown so it made it a sort of dark auburn color in normal light, but in the sun, it’s a brilliant wine red. It seems to have dried my hair out a bit, but that may be due to my use of clarifying shampoo before I applied the henna. My hair is dark, dark brown nearly black and this henna hair dye worked perfectly with my hair. So after all of my research showing me that there wasn’t much of an option for my black hair if I was wanting red, I started to give up. I used the Henna Hair treatment first, which according to my mom and sister made my hair feel SUPER soft and thick. My only gripe is that the red is still rinsing out in the shower and it’s been over a month since I colored. At first it was blue ish with green undertones and dry feeling but I followed the instructions and only conditioned right after the treatment. I followed all instructions and had an experienced henna user help me so no fault on my part. It looks like the dark brown with a rich red undertone; almost a black cherry haircolor effect. The henna I was using (purchased elsewhere)turned my new growth a pretty medium to dark auburn, but the old damaged hair was a very bright coppery color. The auburn turned my medium dark brown hair a rich auburn with vibrant red hues in the sunlight.
Applying the thick paste took about 20 minutes and I left it on for 2 hours for good measure.
Gave a different brand of henna a try; after the first few days of traffic cone orange, it settled into an Lucielle Ball light red. I rinsed it for about a half an hour and conditioned it after I dyed it, and thought I had gotten most of it out.
My daughter also got her hair done in the wine red color on the too half of her hair and natural black on the bottom it looked beautiful! I don’t think the henna is bad quality at all, but I now know that I have to add tons of other things to it to soften my results. My hair before using the product was dyed black, with about 8 inches of undyed medium brown roots. As for application, it’s no harder to apply this than it is to color your hair with anything else. I tried the dark brown, and that didn’t seem to work on my hair at all (very poor gray coverage).
The color looks even better than what I would pay in a salon; natural, glossy, and healthy looking. I’m trying the medium brown this week cause I want to return to my natural color, and the henna treatments for the summer. Instead of a natural looking auburn I now have an extremely unnatural cool red coloring to my hair.
And NO burning feeling and stripping and headaches after using the chemical hair dye that I used before.
I’m glad i did, because it turned out the most insane and vibrant shade of red, especially in the sun.
My hair is about mid-back length and I’m glad I ordered two packages because I used every single bit. One thing I suggest with all henna colors is to wrap your hair in Saran Wrap for the required hours and I’m going to do a bit of mahogany on my greys before doing the two packets of natural black to see if I get 100% coverage. As my hair grows quite fast I’m not a fan of waiting for color to fade to perfection as by that time my roots are visible and ready to be covered again.
Henna colorlab is easy to use, inexpensive, has fast delivery and is really an all around great product. I will repeat again that I have never dyed my hair before and did not expect this result to be so far from what was advertised.
Totally appreciated the tip of using conditioner because rinsing took a bit of time in the shower so halfway through, I used a bit of conditioner which made rinsing out the remaining paste so much easier.
I want my children to know of all natural products and not have hair problems later in life! I wouldn’t necessarily say its a BAD color, but it is not what was expected from reading the description and seeing the pictures. After 48 hours, it darkened and toned down quite a bit and now my hair is a dark, reddish brown.
Gonna try mixing remaining Copper Brown with light brown or ginger blonde to tame initial expression and still cover grays (about 35% gray). Sally told me to be very careful because henna could be unpredictable and this auburn may turn out dark or not take depending on if my hair had hit the saturation point.
Yes, the earthy smell and pasty application take some getting used to, but it’s so worth it! They also constantly have great deals-so much cheaper than salon or even drugstore hair dye and sooo much better for your hair. It smelt like a tea almost ?? after dying my dreads with the henna, my hair got redder throughout the next day. And, the more massaging the paste dye is going into the hair, the more the color really stands out.
I would highly urge everyone to buy this brand and definitely this color if you want a natural looking beautiful black head of hair with incredible shine.
If you go to the dark brown and auburn product pages and look at those models, this color is like a mix between the two. Also noted issues with temple coverage so I will need concentrate more product there where cap does not cover to help mitigate dry out.
I decided to give the auburn a try, because my demarcation line was getting really tacky, and I refuse to use anymore hair dye and chemicals. If you want a change go for Henna and don’t be scared by the clay, it’s kind of fun to think women have been doing this for thousands of years!
The first day after I applied it before washing with shampoo it was almost red orange (and it did startle me) but after washing it twice it is still very deep and darker then I expected, nothing like the picture of the girl or the swatch of hair in the pictures. But I have transitioned my life over the past year and a half to using only natural products on my body and in my house and for my animals.
I don’t know that I will buy this color again although I will continue to purchase my henna dyes from this company. Auburn turns my gray hairs an Irish Setter red, and gives my dark brown (and indigo black) hair a reddish glow.
I just dyed my hair with the pure Henna yesterday to cover some spots I had initially missed. There is no hard line between the indigo dyed hair and the auburn colored roots, so the red seems to flow naturally into the brown and black. If you have a lot of gray, I do warn you that your hair will be a whole lot redder than the example photos. It took about 5 shampoos to completely rinse the excess henna, and it took about four days for the color to develop completely.
