Desert Shadow Organic Hair Dye in Chestnut Shadow to add a warm, medium reddish brown to your hair, available at Flora & Fauna. 

Up to 6 weeks of semi permanent to permanent hair colour.  

Warm and sweet like winter chestnuts, Chestnut Shadow will give a beautiful warm, medium reddish brown on grey, light blonde and dark blonde hair and will add a beautiful rich warm glow to light brown, medium brown and even dark brown hair.

This colour is ideal for fair to medium warm complexions, light olive complexions and people with naturally brown or red hair.

This product includes Henna. 

Note from Flora & Fauna: You may think these products are fussy and you need time. Let me assure you that this isn't the case. I am someone with no time and I enjoyed this; it's easy, quite fuss free and your hair feels, and smells, amazing. There is a bit of preparation but it's the same as stirring a bowl of pasta - no effort and that comes from someone who doesn't cook a lot.   


Desert Shadow Hair Colour Products also act as a hair treatment, helping to repair dry and damaged ends, leaving your hair silky soft and shiny

This Non-irritating 100% Certified Organic formula is ideal for those who have scalp issues, sensitive skin and allergies to commercial hair dyes. It is also a wonderful and safe alternative for Pregnant Mums who would like to continue colouring during pregnancy*  as they contain nothing but Certified Organic Goodness.



Allow yourself plenty of time for this treatment but enjoy it as it is a relaxing treatment.

1) mix sachet 1 the night before with lemon juice then leave overnight. 
2) the following day add some water to the paste until it's a thick paste.
3) in a separate bowl mix sachet 2(in the box) with warm water until smooth. Leave for 15 minutes then combine both pastes. 
4) apply to your hair and cover with a shower cap or cling wrap. Leave for 2-4 hours and then wash off. 

Follow the detailed instructions in the pack. 

Note if the recipe indicates do add honey you do not need to do this to keep it vegan. 



At Desert Shadow, they only work with botanical ingredients so they use a variety of plants to create the different shades, although, every colour has a different formulation.

Ingredients: Indigofera tinctoria, Lawsonia interims (Henna), Beta bulgaris, Aloe barbadensis.


Much better than chemical dyes

Great product. Easy to use and beautiful colours that hold well.

Natural and easy way to cover grey!

Having been lucky enough to inherit grey hair in my early 20s, and now 40, I have 20 years of experience of trying to find a natural solution to cover greys at home until I am ready to embrace my silver locks. I’ve used everything from veggie dyes to mixing my own henna and indigo in the past, but getting the mix right was a bit random. Desert Shadow takes the guesswork out and gives me great colour. I am a busy mum, work part-time and volunteer, so whilst finding time to dye my hair is tricky, I have found this can be easily fit into an evening if I mix Stage 1 in the morning. My ‘metime’ includes doing chores, and getting kids to bed and storytime, but as this formula doesn’t drip at all, and doesn’t make a mess when applying, this is a winning formula for me that means Desert Shadow is going to be my continuing approach for natural colouring. Really impressed. Note: on first application my greys (which are virtually white) were a bit resistant, but by the second application the coverage was fantastic. You may want to plan ahead for a quick follow up if you have more than just a few greys here and there.

I am delighted with the result achieved with this hair dye. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a bit of a rigmarole to prepare, however the end result was worth it, it has completely covered my numerous grey hairs. One of the things I dislike about DIY box hair dyes is how brassy/chalky hair looks after application and the uneven tone, i.e lighter at roots and darker at the ends. This dye looks completely natural and still looking good after 8 washes and 2 swims. Will definitely be using again!

I absolutely love this product.. as the packaging suggests its not a quick colour like one may have used before but dont let this put you off! Its a little preparation time yes, and if you have greys there is the 3.5 to 4 hour leave in time but make the time on a Sunday and relax. .the colour is a gorgeous warm chestnut colour as the packaging also suggests just like warm winter chestnuts. .its conditioning and long lasting and most importantly covers greys impeccably. ..i cannot suggest this product enough. Flora and Fauna are excellent sellers of this and offer such good support with any questions etc.. please try this you will not be disappointed. .am so glad i found it!

Highly Recommended

I've used a number of chemical free hair dyes and this by far is the best in terms of grey coverage. It rinses out really well and leaves not stain marks. Only negative is the process time you need most of the day to do it. I recommend this brand to anyone wanting a natural alternative.
