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.

Used this as prep to a different brand of dye, and it seemed to help with achieving the color I was going for. Now I need to buy the Khadi color I want and see how that works!
Hi there, Thank you for using Color Prep! We look forward to hearing about your results. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew

Hi there, Thank you for recommending the Color Prep to others! Color Prep is a must when coloring with some of khadi's darker shades and gray coverage is an issue. Always a good idea to check our color chart before buying to ensure the hair color shade you're interested in requires Color Prep. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
It definitely has extended the life of my henna color
Hi there, Thanks for usng Color Prep as your first step in coloring your hair wth khadi! Color Prep is essential for many of our darker shades; if there is gray coverage that needs to be addressed or if you're transitioning from very light hair to a dark shade. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
I have used henna before but didn’t have good results, I was pleasantly surprised to see that after using the prep step all my grays were covered. I have waited 4 weeks now to see the longevity of the color… the color held well , I can see the growth but it’s very natural. I highly recommend Khadi to everyone who wants to switch to a natural approach for dying hair.
Hi there, Thank you for trusting khadi with your natural hair coloring needs! We feel so honored that you think khadi plant-based color exceeds all other henna-based colors on the market! We hope you keep enjoying coloring with khadi! Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
This product seems to give a richer color than the other Henna brands I have tried and requires less time with only the addition of hot distilled water (no coffee, no tea, etc). Would definitely use again.
Hi there, Thank you for trusting us when it comes to your hair coloring needs! We look forward to hearing what you think of our other products and hair color shades in the future. Best Regards, khadi Color Crew Team
The color prep is really soothing for the scalp, and leaves it moisturized without being greasy. I'm not too sure of how it adds color but I also am freaking with very stubborn hair.
Hi there, Thank you for using Color Prep! Color Prep is essential for hair that is initially very light or white and lacks pigment. Think of Color Prep as a primer; without the primer (Color Prep), some of our darker shades will not cover white or very blond hair effectively, resulting in visible whites or a muddy-looking color.

I’m allergic to ingredients in chemical dye and have been using henna and indigo for my black hair for many years. The henna frequently left an orange color and the indigo’s black faded with just a few washes. Somehow the Khadi prep (henna) turned my hair a reddish tone and the black left a beautiful dark brown lasting color. The prep also did not have as strong a smell as the other henna products. The best part is that both products did not take as long as others to work. I left the prep in for about 2 hours (other henna products 4 hours) and the indigo black for 2 hours (other indigo products 8 hours) and the result is better. I’m very happy with this company’s product.

Hi there, Thank you for using our Color Prep and for your kind review! Perfectly said! The Color Prep does precisely that; it's a primer if you're going from light to dark hair (predominantly gray) to dark hair. Best Regards khadi Color Crew Team
