Answer: Yes! We get asked this a lot! This is the entire reason we started making and selling it! We want to look younger with a healthier solution. Our dyes can make you look 10 to 15 years younger in less than an hour, while repairing damaged hair.

  • Does your hair dye have chemicals in it? 

Answer: No! Most people that use our products come to us after they have had a bad reaction to chemical hair or beard dye. The younger generations are usually just health and environmentally conscious. Our hair and beard dyes are made of plants and clay's, zero chemicals.

  • What color should I get?

Answer: While color is a personal preference, most ask because they are not sure what results they will get. Keep in mind our dyes will not alter the color of your hair, simply put; they will cover up and add to what you already have. If you have brown hair, you can use reds and burgundies to add highlights or natural red to give an auburn effect. If you just want to cover gray and are naturally medium brown, then just use brown, and then touch up as the grays grow in. When your entire head lightens, repeat by covering all the hair, then go back to only roots again. If you have gray roots and the rest of your hair is dark brown, use dark brown on the roots and feather it in. If after 24 hours it is not dark enough, you can do it again for 30 minutes and it will make it darker. You can use EarthDye as often as you like, it is health hair dye.

  • Why don't you have color charts?

Answer: We do not use color charts because our dyes do not go lighter, only equal or darker. Chemicals dyes, what you see is what you usually get.
If you are a natural red head, use our natural red to liven it up or red to make a really red head of hair. Or use brown or dark brown to cover the red. The options are almost endless.

People with black hair/gray need to use either plain indigo, or purchase the 2-step black. Some can get away with soft black or even dark brown. Once you get a feel you will know exactly what to get. You can exchange a color any time as long as it is unopened and you are an existing customer.

  • How long does it take?

Answer: Most of the time it depends on how long your hair is. Some colors take as little as 10 minutes some take an hour. No application should be left on more than 1.5 hours, however some customers tell us about different ways they have applied it. When in doubt, follow our directions, not anyone else's unless you know them personally and trust them to baby sit your pet.

  • How many applications can I expect to get from 1 packet?

Answer: It depends on how long your hair is. Short hair can get as many as 4 uses doing the entire head, as many as 20-30 uses doing root touch ups. Mustache as many as 40-50 uses, goatee as many as 30-40, and full beards depending on length as many as 10-20. This makes it super affordable and as low as 25 cents per application.

  • Will I get red hair?

Answer: You should not get red hair using browns, or blacks. If your hair is white or extremely light, burgundy can come out red orange the first time or if it is left on too long. If you are starting from white hair a second application might be necessary, but rare. Oils, certain gels and leave in conditioners can also cause the browns to be stripped leaving red over time. 

  • How to apply it?

Answer: All packets come with instructions. In general, shampoo your hair or do the beard prep 2 times, rinse. Mix powder with  warm or warm water, apply to hair or beard. For hair using a application brush works best. Goatees, you can use a spoon.  Hair can be toweled dry (damp) or dry. Men can shampoo beards (not hair) 3 hours later. Hair on the head should be shampooed until 24 hours after the dye has been rinsed. Color will darken on browns,blacks and blond overnight.  Natural red will settle down after first shampoo.
