Looking for a clean, toxin and synthetic free, and completely natural way to colour & condition your hair using hair friendly herbs like Henna? Or are you simply looking to give your hair a healthy, lustrous natural tint and have a enjoyable hair colouring experience?
Natural Tint: Madyantika Uno
When we launched our 2 step hair colour, Dwii, we separated the Henna part of the process and the Indigo part of the process into 2 parts. This was helpful to layer the colour better and this gave better dye retention for those with super stubborn greys.
But along the way, we started having many requests to sell our Step 1 part of the Dwii hair colour separately. Many people loved how well conditioned and soft the hair became after step 1, and were happy to stop right here in the colouring process, especially if they were okay not dyeing their hair completely or had a smaller percentage of greys.
So here is the Madyantika Uno – the first part of our Dwii 2 step colour. . This is an indigo free color made from 10 ayurvedic herbs. The herbs used add to the natural orange red shade of Henna and also give a noticeable lustre and healthy texture to hair. About 5% of the population is allergic to Indigo – so we wanted a range of shades that would also cater to these needs. Repeated hair colouring with our Indigo free colours and tints deepens the rich red and chocolate tones in your hair naturally. It also helps improve the texture and health of hair strands.
Krya’s natural hair colour – Madyantika Uno is a semi permanent hair tint made completely from Henna and other Herbs. The colour gradually fades anytime between 2 – 4 weeks depending upon how fast your hair grows and the frequency of hair washing. With repeated use, the colour becomes richer and more luxurious as it binds well to the hair cuticle.
Every herb used in the Krya hair colour range is documented for hair use in the Ayurvedic texts. The product is therefore completely natural, completely safe and can be used even during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Important: Every person reacts differently to a given set of ingredients, even completely natural ingredients like ours. Please follow the precautions listed in “How to use” tab before every use of the Krya natural hair colour product.
Shade variations when using a natural hair colour:
Synthetic hair dyes give you an even shade by first bleaching out all existing colour from your hair and then adding the synthetic colour to your hair. This is why the colour you get after a synthetic hair colour / dye is even and the same shade is present throughout your hair.
A natural hair colour simply coats your existing hair with the shade you have chosen. The dye uptake varies depending upon the grey percentage in your hair and how your individual hair strands react to the herbs in the hair colour.
So while we have tested the hair colour on human hair swatches, you can expect slight variations in the colour on your hair. We do not expect these variations to be too different from the hair colour we have achieved. Also, depending upon the grey percentage in your hair, you can see variations in the colour across your hair. Grey hair usually is much more intensely coloured and visible – black or dark hair tends to take on the colour much like highlights or tints. These variations even out over repeated hair colouring. Here is a post on how you can transition to a natural colour.
