Desert Shadow Organic Hair Dye in Deep Chestnut Shadow is the darkest brown available in the Desert Shadow range and is available at Flora & Fauna. 

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

The darkest brown in town, Deep Chestnut is just a couple of shades off black. It will give a darkest brown with red highlights in the sun to all hair colours**

** 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 fair to medium warm complexions, light olive complexions and people with naturally brown 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), Aloe barbadensis.


Fantastic product and colour

Best natural brown colour I have tried. It takes a day or 2 for the colour to soften and warm. Excellent at covering grey hair without it going bright red/orange.

Really good product and lovely rich colour. I'm allergic to standard hair dyes and tried this and am very happy.

Nice colour

I found the preparation process quite fascinating and was very happy with the colour result and the shine. My only concern was the smell that it left on my hair and even after three washes it is still a very earthy wheatgrass type smell when wet. Overall though, great product and absolutely love the fact that we can colour our hair so beautifully without nasty chemicals!! The way nature intended :)

Super shiny hair

When this product arrived I wondered if the extra prep and mixing work was going to be worth it - it was more like a recipe than a beauty product but I followed the steps and was surprised to see a dark green paste. Having faith in the instructions I started applying it to my very long hair and was amazed how nicely the thick paste covered. I always struggle to get "conventional" dyes to cover all of my hair. The thick paste was different but I liked it. I wrapped up my hair and forgot about it for 4 hours. When I rinsed (about 4 times) there was a LOT of green and I was nervous to look in the mirror however when I dried my hair it was really shiny, dark brown - no green to be seen and it was also really soft with a gentle fragrance. I'll definitely use this product again.

Results are so worth it!!

This stuff takes a bit more time than the commercial stuff (has to be kept in the hair for at least three hours), but is easy to mix, pretty easy to paste on, and my hair is the best it's been for years and years!! Excellent, very natural-looking colour (that has some nice shade variations), fabulous texture and suddenly I don't need to wash it every second day any more!!
