When do you use it?
From Very Light to Dark
khadi Color Prep forms an optimal primer for the color change from very light to a darker shade. It will deposit a strawberry blonde to intense copper base color on your hair making the transition easier. Use Color Prep before you color with your desired shade. Simply mix the color powder with water that is 176° F and leave on your hair for 60 minutes for an intense base color.
Bleach & Highlights
khadi Color Prep prepares your bleached, dry, or porous hair for further coloring by adding blonde and copper pigments. Use Color Prep before you color with your desired shade. Simply mix the color powder with water that is 140° F and leave on your hair for 30 minutes.
Chemical Coloring / Gray Roots
Do you have gray roots? khadi Color Prep will deposit a strawberry blonde to intense copper base color on your gray roots, preparing them for further coloring with your desired khadi shade. This step is great for you, if you want to color with a darker khadi shade and achieve optimal gray coverage on your roots. Simply mix with water that is 176° F and leave on your roots for 60 minutes.

khadi Natural Hair Color dyes with the power of finely ground plants. Color pigments bind to the hair cuticles and adhere to the outside of the hair shaft – creating a nourishing glaze that protects and revitalizes.
All khadi Hair Colors are 100% natural, vegan, free from synthetic dyes, fragrances, and preservatives.
Cassia auriculata leaf powder (Senna), Lawsonia inermis leaf powder (Henna), Ziziphusjujuba leaf powder (Sidr), Ziziphus spinachristileaf powder (Zizisphus)
The ritual of applying khadi Natural Hair Color is a century-old, Ayurvedic practice to naturally color and strengthen hair.
The finely ground plant powder is mixed with warm water to form a naturally creamy paste. This potent color cream is then applied to freshly washed hair. After allowing the hair dye to soak in, the color cream is washed out with water only. The color result is immediately visible, but intensifies over the next 24 to 48 hours.

No toxic chemicals, odors or stains. And after the process my hair is soft and healthy,
Hi Sidney, All such wonderful things! Thanks for choosing to color your hair with our plant-based hair color line! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
Khadi color prep is amazing. It is very easy to prepare and to set due to the excellent quality of the powder ( very fine). It really covers all the white-grey hair and allows to achieve the chosen color all over .
Hi Cristina, We couldn't agree more with your sentiments! It's a must for many of our darker shades when gray coverage is required, going from very light hair to one of our darker shades or when hair is simply chemically over-processed. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I used this to cover my grey/white hair in the front before I used the Khadi Blue Black. (I have very dark hair) and I worried that it would make all my cool dark hair look warm and strange, but I should not have worried. It just coloured my greys a sort of yellowy/orange colour, and then that got covered over by the blue black. It is an extra step but it's totally worth it to not be soaking your head with dangerous chemicals every few weeks!
Love this so much!
Hi there, Wonderful! Thanks for choosing khadi! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
It does dye better if I use it but still the stubborn grey is dying lightly
Hello there, Thank you for using our Color Prep before coloring your hair with your desired khadi shade. If the Color Prep isn't fully covering up your grays, try increasing the processing time from 60 to 120 minutes. The extra processing time should effectively cover up resistant grays. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I am beyond happy & excited to have found Khadi. I had trouble keeping the water at the temp specified for my desired hair color but my color still looks nice. I plan on purchasing more products soon. Thank you Khadi !!!
I’ve been using the color prep and ash brown. This combo works great to cover my grays. It’s been about 3 months. I’m thinking about trying dark blond with the color prep to lighten up for the summer.
Hi there, Our color primer, Color Prep, is excellent for our Ash Brown and Dark Blonde shades. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
Received a lot of compliments on my hair after using this product.
Hello there, Lovely! We love that you paired our Color Prep with your preferred khadi shade! Color Prep is not only used when gray coverage is necessary with some of our darker shades but also for bleached hair or if you're starting with a very light hair color and want to transition to one of our dark brown shades. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
Really impress with the good results I get, Khadi colors keep your hair healthy.
Hi there, We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on our plant-based hair color line with us! We're pleased you're pleased! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I’ve been using color prep and ash brown for 3 months now. I’m so happy with the color. My hair is a nice medium brown without any red/orange undertones. I love that the products are all natural and I can color easily at home. I will continue using this.
Hi Alexis, We're delighted to hear that you're content with your hair color results and enjoy coloring your hair with khadi at home! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I use the Khadi Color Prep before the Hazel color for my grey hair. It has allowed it to be well recovered.
Hello there, Lovely! Color Prep is the best! We're happy to hear that you're using it, and it's doing its job at covering up those sometimes hard-to-cover-resistant grays! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I would recommend to apply color prep for grey color hair.. it works very well…
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We love Color Prep just as much! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
Love this product! Highly recommend
Hi there, Thank you for the recommendation! Best Regards, khadi Natural Cosmetics Team
The Ayurveda Oil helps in retaining the color and would highly recommend purchasing it in addition to your colors!
Hi there, We couldn't agree with you more. The Color Care Hair Oil makes all the difference in helping set the plant-based dye, but also, when used weekly after coloring with khadi, it helps preserve and protect the plant-based pigments. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
After ordering your product for the first time I decided that it would not be cost effective to use. I have very short gray hair. Your product cannot be used in small amounts. Problem is with your extensive contract. So many requirements. If your products are so great then you should already know that you can sell them no matter what. But it’s clear who you are cuz don’t see them Khadi emblem on Your product. I no there is an effort out there to get rid of all the Khadi mini mees. You are one of them Fake ones.
