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

How To Use

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.

    Hi there, Color Prep is made for all individuals who are going from very light hair to a darker shade, those who have bleached and highlighted hair, or if you have gray roots/hair that needs gray coverage. Happy to hear Color Prep helped you address all your concerns prior to coloring with your favorite khadi Natural Hair Color shade! Warm Regards, khadi Color Crew Team

    Great product and truly preps the hair for expected color.

    I tried color prep before using black and it worked perfectly great as expected. Love it.

    Hi Chethna, Color Prep does exactly that, it prepares the hair for khadi Natural Hair Color shades. Happy you utilized Color Prep prior to coloring with your preferred khadi Natural Hair Color shade. Color Prep provides excellent coverage to achieve the very best color results! Warmest Regards, khadi Color Crew Team

    Works so well!

    I’m use to henna color that fades so quickly and destroys pillow cases and shirts. Khadi doesn’t bleed after the first rinse. And my hair feels so healthy! Love it!

    Hi Atir, Thank you for taking the time to share your personal experience with Color Prep. Thrilled to hear your loving the vibrant color results, healthy hair and that your pillowcases are still intact. All very important things! Warmest Regards, khadi Color Crew Team

    Works as stated.

    My wife uses this as a base for mixed gray roots. It does the job well in combination with dark brown. Without color prep the brown does not take as well. It takes a couple of days to reach a stable color.

    Excellent to hear that your wife is utilizing Color Prep as her first step when coloring with khadi. It really is the best way to guarantee gray coverage.


    Great coverage

    Great coverage

    It did what it should do - it covered all my white hair. I used dark brown afterwards and it looks great! I will probably dye a second time in a few weeks to intensify the result, but I am super happy with my results so far! Finally, a healthy way to deal with my white hair. The only thing I don't like is how long it takes. But for me, it's totally worth it. I no longer want to use chemicals on my hair.
