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

Classic, classy brown, Chocolate Shadow is a rich colour that will give silky dark chocolate tones to all hair colours except for black**

This colour can be used to blend the greys and turn them into highlights if you have dark or even black hair.

** We recommend a Red Shadow base application for hair with more than 50% grey and light blonde hair to achieve full colour results.

This colour is ideal for most complexions and people with naturally brown or dark 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.

Home Hair Dye - Success Against All Odds!

By: on 30 August 2018
I started developing an allergy to PPD in conventional hair itchy rash would surface along my hairline after my routine trip to the hairdresser to cover my greys. It was becoming worse with each visit so I realised I would have to find a long term solution. After googling frantically, (I discovered 'natural' is a much maligned word in the world of beauty)...I finally stumbled upon Flora and Fauna. I was apprehensive about applying dye at home as I prefer to leave this sort of thing to the professionals. If I didn't have short hair, I don't think I'd be brave enough. The process required some planning before going ahead as detailed in the instruction booklet. My application was made extra clumsy as it was 12 degrees in Melbourne and the dye kept thickening due to the was like applying chunky green mud to your head! This despite the heater being turned up to 25 time I might try adding olive oil perhaps to make it runnier...what do you think F&F? Wait...did I say next time?? The answer is a resounding yes...despite the smell and wearing a beanie over my plastic wrapped head to keep it warm for four hours...I really like the colour and there were absolutely no side effects...such a relief! Chocolate Shadow has definitely surpassed my's a lovely shade and lasting rather well up to 3 weeks now. The grey hair has a reddish tinge as it gradually starts to show; a subtle lighter colour...using the Desert Shadow colour range, I can visualise how a transition to a gradually greying style in future might even be possible...amazing!

Good product

It is a good product. But time consuming. It’s cover the gray hair. I think if you use regularly, it will be give good results.

I've been using this hair colour for a year now and it is amazing! Makes my hair shiny and smooth and it also smells nice. I do add a bit of extra spices and improvise on instructions, that is, I do add honey to the paste :)

Best natural hair dye

By: on 6 February 2018
I have been searching for a natural hair dye that actually works for so long now. After using those horrible blocks of henna for so long, I discovered Desert Shadow. I have naturally mousey blondey/browny hair and my desired colour is to be dark chocolate brown. The chocolate shade successfully turns my natural hair colour to that desired dark brown colour. And it looks so natural! No harsh colours. Plus my hair feels a million dollars. The only thing I can possibly think that might be a down fall for some people is that it is a lengthy process and a bit fiddly. But with an all natural ingredient hair dye, that process is just expected. And I just split the boxes in half so it is $11.50 every time I want to dye my hair!! Could not recommend this product enough.
