Herbatint Haircolor Kit Flash Fashion Henna Red FF1 -- 1 Kit
I mixed this Henna Red with the Herbatints Medium Mahogony and glad I did, it produced a beautiful color on my dark brown hair. I was a bit reluctant, thinking it might be too red, I work in a professional environment and didn't want to have an "over the top look." Herbatint color is fantastic, it gave my curly, coarse resistant gray hair lasting color, with less chemicals. I love that I can get two applications from the box! Also, they provide a set of gloves (only 1 set) and conditioner (1 application).
Once I mixed the product it was a bit runny, perhaps it was due to using the leftover portion from a previous usage?...fortunately I had a brush to apply it, which I think aids in application regardless of the consistency. Also, the time required is 40 minutes, unlike a different "commercial" product (semi-permanent color, took only ten minutes), but then again, I'm worth it.
Let it be noted, in the past I've had a salon, which uses natural/sustainable products, apply their haircolor product, and that too took 40 minutes. The result was similar and very short lived, even when using thieir color conserving shampoo and conditioner.
Thank you Herbatint for a fine product and Vitacost for making it available.

I mixed w/other color and the result was nice- got compliments.
I gave only 4 stars because the result lasted only 3 weeks, but on the other hand there is no harsh ingredients,

A more vibrant true color than conventional dyes
I am no stranger to the vast options of dying products and methods. I've used the typical products found at grocery stores, gone to professionals, enjoyed my 20s with Manic Panic and went a kinder route of henna shampoo.
This product is impressive. I went with my favorite color, Henna Red. It delivered the powerful radiant red I wanted to see. I have brown hair and much of it has been colored before, but I had about an inch and a half of natural root.
It probably does help to use a brush to paint this stuff on, but I didn't have one and I just glopped it on with the gloves and saturated my hair ridiculously.
I know that you could technically mix just as much as you need and save the unmixed parts later, but I found this to be confusing because you can't actually see the amount of liquid you start with. It's hard to gauge if you've used even portions of either liquid. I'm guessing that if you are meticulous enough to whip out a cough syrup cup (2 tbs) to measure you could, but I opted to error on the side of overkill. So I used it all on my hair and can't complain. I mean, it's RED and it's still red after nearly two weeks. Red is the fastest color to fade and this is still pretty potent looking.
So yeah, take a chance, spend the cash on this because it's much nicer to your hair, doesn't kill your nose and lasts just as long or longer than buying anything else off the shelf.

Very Nice Haircolor
This is the first time I have used the Herbatint Flash Fashion Henna Red FF1 and I like the red highlights very much. I have used Herbatint and Naturtint before. I very much like both products. I just like to experiment with haircolor.
