The longer the exposure, the more intense and darker the colour outcome. The longer the exposure, the more red components are deposited on the hair and the color outcome is strawberry blonde. The higher the temperature of the mixing liquid, the yellower the colour outcome. Therefore, the temperature of the mixing liquid at 50 ° C is optimal and should not be raised. When used frequently, the colour outcome can become darker with the addition of colour stains. When used frequently, it is recommended to stain only the roots. Stain all hair with every fourth treatment approximately.
Tips: For a more intense colour, without red components, it is recommended to apply a second colouration directly after the first application than to extend the exposure time of the first application. Khadi do not recommend the addition of acids (apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, etc.), as the colour outcome may turn out to be very reddish.

The owners of khadi spent many years in India learning about Ayurvedic principles. They then merged this most ancient knowledge of herbs and oils with their knowledge of skin and hair care products to create the khadi range of products.
Khadi products are based on the principals of the most ancient teachings of Ayurveda which treats well-being and health as an interlocking whole of mind, body and soul.
Thousands of years ago India’s great sages compiled together hundreds of herbs, combining them with oils to heal and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. All khadi products reflect this sentiment of going back to a heritage and tradition which is pure, handmade and incorporates the best from the most ancient principals in the world.
Khadi hair colours have been available in Germany since 2008 and have become increasingly popular over the years.
The recipies and formulas for the Khadi vegetable hair colours are prepared in India and their unique compositions provide exceptionally high quality, effective hair care products.
To create such effective products khadi will only use ingredients (e.g. Lawson Inermis and Indigofera Tinctora) from the best growing areas in India.
Ingredients are then harvested at selected times and are processed immediately after harvesting to ensure that the active plant ingredients do not deteriorate. Crucially the ingredients are also finely ground as this ensures even coverage and vibrant colour.
Khadi vegetable hair colours do not contain any chemical additives such as peroxides, colour boosters, preservatives or fragrances.
It is Khadi’s policy to create rural employment with out harming nature, while also ensuring that any herbs used in the formulations are collected in the most traditional way by local inhabitants.
Khadi do not test on animals.
Ayurveda, from the Sanskrit words ‘ayur’ meaning life and ‘veda’ meaning science or knowledge, is a way of life that is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. These elements are represented in humans by three “doshas” or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
• Vata pertains to air and ether elements. This energy is generally seen as the force which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration and elimination
• Kapha pertains to water and earth elements. Kapha is responsible for growth and protection.
• Pitta pertains to the fire and water elements. This dosha governs metabolism in the organ and tissue systems.
Although everyone has all three doshas, one or two of the energies will be more dominant in the body.
When any of the doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance and our health and wellbeing depends on the three doshas being correctly balanced.
Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce excess dosha. The aim of Ayurveda is to prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life.
Herbal versus Chemical Hair Colouring
HERBAL HAIR COLOURING Herbal hair colours dye the hair in a completely different way than chemical hair colourants. Herbal hair colourants do not penetrate the hair shaft, they sit on the surface of the hair, filling in any gaps in the hairs structure and acting as a glaze around each individual hair strand. After using a herbal hair colourant the hair appears stronger and has an incomparable shine and lustre.
CHEMICAL HAIR COLOURING Chemical hair dye usually contains Ammonia and Peroxide and colours the hair in a two step process. During the colouring process the Ammonia opens the outer layer of the hair shaft (cuticle) to enable the hair colour to penetrate the inner section of the hair (cortex). The Peroxide then develops the colour before closing the cuticle. After the colouring process the hair cuticles may not lay flat causing the hair to look dull and lose shine. Repeatedly using chemical hair colourants can damage the hair cuticle leaving it dry, dull and vunerable to the environment (pollution, heat styling, shampooing).
HENNA AND AMLA Henna (Lawsonia Inermis) is a small, flowering plant which can grow up to 25 feet tall and is native to semi arid and tropical areas such as India, Northern Africa, Northern Australasia and Southern Asia. Henna will only grow where temperatures are higher than 11°C but will produce the most dye at temperatures greater than 35°C, the henna bush can also tolerate extreme heat and long droughts. Henna leaves contain a red-orange dye (lawsone) which is found in the central vain of the henna leaf, the lawsone content defines the quality and strength of the colour of any henna product. This dye is then used as a hair colourant or for body art. True henna will only produce a rich red/orange colour, however it may be mixed with other natural ingredients to create various different hair colours.
AMLA Amla (Emblica Officinalis) also know as Indian Gooseberry has long been used in hair care due to its ability to nourish the hair and scalp. Amla is rich in anti-oxidants due to its high vitamin C content (20 times more than an orange) it aids hair growth while helping to prevent hair loss and greying.
Indigo, Jatropha and Senna
Indigo Indigo (Indigofera Tinctoria) is a large Asian shrub which produces a blue dye. Indigo is often refered to as ‘Black Henna’ and while there is a resemblence to henna they are not the same. Indigo can be used with henna to dye the hair black.
Jatropha Jatropha (Euphorbiaceae) is a flowering plant that produces a redish dye. When mixed with henna it produces a more intense colour.
Senna Senna, which is probably the most commonly know herb in the world is used to improve the texture of the hair and to add gloss to the hair.
KHADI GUIDELINES **Always follow the application instructions found in the khadi Herbal Hair Colour box **
Preparation To ensure the correct colour result carry out a strand test 24 hrs before application. Wash the hair before application to remove all traces of dirt, oil and styling products. Do not use products that contain silicone or products designed to nourish the hair, as ingredients such as jojoba can coat the hair and prevent the adhesion of a vegetable hair colour.
Mixing Khadi hair colours can be mixed with warm or hot water, however when you are combining colours you MUST use hot water. The colours can also be mixed with black tea (not too strong). The colour powder and liquid (water or black tea) should be stirred into a smooth paste (you can also use a hand whisk).
DO NOT inhale the colour powder.
Black Tea Black tea is used to prevent underdye when using Indigo and over dye when using Henna. It also improves the intensity and durability of Indigo.
Salt Salt is used to reduce colour fade when using Indigo.
Application Apply the hair colour to freshly washed damp hair. Split the hair into four sections (more sections for thicker hair). Apply the colour evenly to each section, then comb through.
Development Khadi hair colours should be kept warm during the development time, you can do this by wrapping the hair in a towel or by wearing an old woollen hat. Khadi hair colour should be left on the hair for 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the desired colour result (as determined by the strand test).
After Colouring After the development time has expired, rinse the hair thoroughly with warm water. Do not wash or style the hair for 12-24 hours after application as the hair colour is still developing. Note - wear gloves to prevent the hair colour staining the hands and you MUST wear old clothes when applying Khadi vegetable hair colour as stains cannot be removed from clothing.
Application on Blonde/Grey Hair When applying khadi vegetable hair colours on to blonde or grey hair, you must follow our two step tinting process. Step 1 - Pre tint the hair with khadi Henna, Amla and Jatropha. After removing the hair colour rinse the hair. Step 2 - Apply the desired khadi hair colour, making sure to follow the application instructions. If you do not follow the above steps it is possible that the hair colour achieved may not be desirable (e.g. the hair may become green or blue).
Allergies All active components including those from natural and organic origin can cause reactions. khadi therefore recommend that an allergy patch test is carried out 24 hours before use. Mix a small amount of your chosen khadi hair colour with water and apply to a discreet area of skin. If after 24 hours no reaction has occurred then the product may be used.
Silicone A big problem in the hair care world is silicone, which can be found in most conventional hair care products. While some silicones wash out some last longer and can hermetically shield the hair against external influences and unfortunately against vegetable hair colours. In order to achieve optimum colour results when using khadi hair colours it is recommended to avoid the use of products containing silicone for a few weeks before colour application.
Use on Chemically Treated Hair khadi hair colours can be used on hair that has been coloured with a chemical hair dye. Hair will be left shiny and healthy looking, however any damage that has been caused by the chemical dye will not be repaired by the use of a herbal hair colour. When using herbal hair colour on bleached hair you MUST test the colour on a few strands of hair before use, due to the advanced degredation of the hair it is possible to achieve an unwanted colour. khadi hair colour can also be used on permed hair, however it is advised that this is carried out by a qualified hairdresser.
Excessive Red Tones Some hair types naturally contain excessive amounts of red tones. This can mean that it is almost impossible to achieve an ash tone with herbal hair colours, even when using khadi Dark Brown or Indigo.
The khadi guarantee:
• No testing on animals of products or ingredients.
• No mineral oils.
• No synthetic or artificial colours.
• No child labour is involved during the making of khadi products.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE - KHADI HERBAL HAIR COLOURS
With Khadi products, it is possible to colour and treat your hair with dyes and natural active ingredients. All Khadi products are free from harmful substances due to the rigorous tests and checks, to which they were subjected.
The herbal hair colours contain no preservatives, dyes or other chemicals.
Please read the directions for use in order to achieve the optimal results when using the natural dyes by Khadi.
Direction for use:
What you will need:
- Khadi Herbal Hair Colour
- A bowl of a suitable size
- Hot water or black tea at 50°C (see temperature exceptions below)
- Disposable gloves
- An old towel to protect clothing
- Possibly a brush for dyeing
- Shower cap or plastic (transparent film)
- Turban or towel to wrap around the hair and retain heat.
Use Khadi Herbal Hair Dye on freshly cleansed and towel-dried hair.
Avoid harsh shampoos that contain silicones, as these may disrupt the outcome of the colour desired.
Mix the required amount of water (50°C) or black tea to obtain a smooth paste. Avoid inhaling the powder.
You can mix the shades Pure henna, Amla and Jatropha with water or black tea at a high temperature (90°C), in particular for shades of red to intensify the colour.
For Indigo shades, the temperature of the liquid must not exceed 50°C.
Protect your clothes and hands with gloves and a towel as dye stains are very difficult or sometimes impossible to remove.
It is recommended to apply the dye with a brush. Place the bowl containing the mixture in a water bath, for it to remain at an optimal temperature. The paste needs to cool down!
Starting at the roots, apply the dye section by section over the entire head of hair. Sectioning the hair allows you to apply the colour strand by strand, dividing each section with a comb for optimal application.
Apply the remaining paste on your hair, while massaging it with your fingers, thus ensuring uniform distribution.
After the dye has been applied to your hair and the hair is completely covered with the paste, place a plastic wrap or shower cap on your head to avoid the paste from drying.
Once this has been done, wrap a towel or turban around your head to ensure that the hair is kept warm. The warmer the paste is kept, the better the outcome.
The exposure time depends on personal preference and the structure of the hair. Thin and fine hair, damaged by chemical treatments will absorb the colour more quicker than stronger, healthier hair.
Leave the dye on the hair for at least 30 minutes (for a light tint of colour) to two hours.
Rinse hari with warm water until the water runs clear and no residue is left in the hair.
Avoid cleansing the hair with shampoo or using styling products for the next 24 hours, in order for the colour to develop better. Note that after rinsing, the shade may deepen in colour.
When in contact with air, the herbal colour may vary within 48 hours after application.
Cleansing your hair may commence the following day without experiencing any problems.
The use of the Khadi Hair Oil before the first wash will contribute to the durability of the colouration. Apply a small amount of the oil on the hair a day after colouration and it sit for 30-60 minutes. Wash hair as usual thereafter.
Should you be dissatisfied with the results, you may mix different Khadi shades to perfect your colour - there are no limits to your imagination!
Colouring grey/blond hair using the 2-phase method
Please take note that when using Indigo shades in high doses (hence the shades Dark Brown, Black or Pure Indigo) on grey hair, it can take on a colour different to what is expected i.e. with greenish reflections. In order to avoid undesirable results, it should not be applied to lighter hair colours. As such, we recommend the 2-phase method for grey and blond hair.
In the first step colour your hair with Khadi Pure Henna or Khadi Henna, Amla and Jatropha. The duration you keep the paste on your hair depends on individual hair structure especially if you have fine or thick hair. Wash off the paste. Now over this pre-coloured hair you can use any of the darker tones which you have chosen. Use the same procedure as mentioned. The result will be an even coloured tone through out your hair.
How to use Khadi Senna/Cassia:
This is not a colouration treatment and may be used on any hair type.
Mix the powder as you would all other hair dyes for the application and proceed as described above.
For healthy hair it is not necessary to note the exposure time as Senna/Cassia will not colour the hair.
In rare cases however, it is possible that hair that has been dyed blond may take on a greenish tint (which disappears after rinsing). In such cases, the product should not be left on the hair for longer that 15 minutes!

KHADI HAIR COLOUR
Khadi Herbal Hair Colours - Khadi is the natural alternative to chemical hair colours.
Khadi Herbal Hair Colours have been meticulously crafted, unique colours for brilliant gloss, strong hair and volume.

* 100% grey coverage * BDIH Certified * Vegan * 100% natural * No preservatives * No PPD or Ammonia * No perfumes * No essential oils * No metallic salts * No mineral oxidants * No colour intensifiers * No animal pigments * Not tested on animals *
In India plant pigments have been used to decorate the body and colour hair and fabrics for over 4500 years. The benefits of using plant pigments are manifold, not only do they colour, they keep the skin cool, while providing ultra violet protection and preventing fungal infections. Khadi is re-introducing the use of plant pigments for natural hair colour and care, to provide complete grey coverage and enhance the skin and hair while being environment friendly, chemical free and supporting grass root farmers.
Khadi Herbal Hair Colours
Khadi Herbal Hair colours are a fine mix of handpicked, air dried herbs which have been used in Ayurvedic skin and hair care for over 5000 years. Years of research and tests have helped develop this carefully crafted range and extreme care is taken during processing and packaging to retain the properties of the herbs.
Khadi Herbal Hair colours have fast pigment release and require no additional mixing ingredients (other than water or black tea) and are ready to be used immediately after mixing. Khadi Herbal Hair colours do not change the structure of the hair, remove proteins or lift cuticles, the colour pigments, suspended in water, filter around hair cuticles to leave a stain on the hair shaft. Khadi Herbal Hair colours are translucent so the final colour result is a combination of the original hair colour and the herbal hair colour leading to a unique personalised hair colour.
Khadi Herbal Hair colours can be used over chemically coloured hair without any adverse results however they will not lighten hair. Darker Herbal Hair colours, especially Henna based colours like browns and black will leave a permanent colour stain on the hair which may fade slightly over time.
Khadi herbal hair colours add vibrancy, shine and colour to lack lustre hair whether dull blonde, auburn, brunette or black. The rich nutrients found in the plants and herbs also strengthen and repair damaged hair.
Complete grey coverage
Khadi herbal hair colours provide complete grey coverage throughout the range of hair colours (blonde, red, brown, black). It is the perfect choice for those who have never used hair dye to cover grey hair and the perfect alternative for those who want to cover greys without chemicals.
Choosing a colour close to your natural hair colour will provide grey coverage and add glossy highlights and for more difficult to dye hair pre-treat the hair with a lighter colour before dyeing with your desired colour.
In some cases it is possible that a green tinge may be visible on the hair after washing, oxidation within 24 hours will change the colour to light blonde or light brown. If you have damaged/heat damaged or chemically coloured hair the Herbal Hair colour paste should be left on for short durations, approx 15-30 minutes, to prevent too much pigment uptake and too much chlorophyll being attached to hair.
Dryness & Herbal Hair colours
Sometimes hair may feel dry and stiff after washing off the Khadi Herbal Hair Colour, this is a temporary effect and only usually happens if the hair is porous or extremely dry.
However there are two other reasons for hair feeling dry: plants contain natural tannins which neutralise some of the lipids (natural hair oils) on cuticles which can make the hair feel dry. The other reason is the protein effect, Henna along with other herbs is packed with nutrients which attach to hair this makes the hair stronger, prevents breakage and adds gloss and shine, however this might make hair feel stiff. Applying Argan or Coconut oils after air drying the hair restores hairs natural oils, seals cuticles leaving the hair soft and supple.
