Important Points of Radico Colour Me Organic Hair Colour


Kindly note that these 100% Natural organic hair colours are made with pure, natural organic herbs and nothing else.

As such they have certain limitations, which should be considered when compared with chemical hair colours. colouring intensity and retention is weaker in comparision to that of chemical hair colours. But it is safe for body and health and have no side effects, allergy, and harm to body, perfect for those who are health conscious or are allergic to synthetic chemicals.

  1. Its result should never be compared with 100% chemical hair colours

  2. Its colouring intensity and retention is weaker in comparision to that of 100% chemical hair colours

  3. The Colour can stay on hair from 1 to 3 weeks, depending on health of hair of person using it.

  4. If the hair has been treated badly in past with chemicals, or the health of hair is poor. the results of the first application may seem disappointing, but for best results and product may need to be applied 2 or three times, with a interval of at least 24 hours between applications. this is so the Product can first neutralise the damage of hair and repair it, there after good results are achieved in just single application.

  5. In rare cases some people are even sensitive to these herbs, we do advise doing patch test before use. some people can even be allergic to flowers, pollen grains, or even fragrance.

  6. With our soft black colour, very few people may feel tingling effect during application due to presence of indigo herb, it is normal, so there nothing to worry about.

  7. Most of the people will get good results, but some people, after application may get a slight violet or purple tone or even an orangish tone temporarily, this should go away in just few hours.
    If in some rare cases it still persists after 24 hours, then take following action:
    • if a person get purple tone, then they may apply just natural henna paste, made freshly by adding water to henna powder, leave it on hair for one hour and rinse off with water. Purple tone will go away and hair will become black.

    • if a person get orangish tone, then kindly apply paste made of of just Natural indigo herb powder, by adding water, leave it on hair for one hour and rinse off with water. Orangish tone will go away and hair will become dark.


  • Many people think it is HENNA and treat it as such, it is not just henna but mixture of more then one various organic herbs, henna is just one of the herbs. Henna is a single herb.

  • General practice with pure henna is that after making paste it is left idle for 1 or two hours so that its natural colouring component called Lawsone get activated in large qty and good dark colouring is obtained, but it is no so with the herbs present in our organic hair colours, after making paste with our organic hair colour powder, please apply it on hair immediately.

  • Once water is added in powder to make paste, the reaction between water and the herbs present in powder starts, this reaction should take place on hair for colouring, if you leave the paste idle for some time before application, its reaction is already over when you apply on hair, and it will not colour your hair.


  • Hair Darkening effect - it is to cover grey / white hair, for example if you have brown hair and some white hair, then you should apply brown colour, if you have dark brown hair and some white hair, then you should apply dark brown colour.

  • Hair Lightening effect - if you want to apply say wine red on black hair, for fashion, then you may not get red colour on black hair by first application, it may just give some reddish tint on black hair, you need to apply 3-4 time with a gap of at least 24 hours between each application to get red colour.

This is the unique feature of this organic hair colour, all hair colours are just darkening colours, in other words make light hair darker, and if you want to colour your dark hair to lighter colour, then first you need to bleach and then apply lighter colour shade, this is the normal way,

But with this organic hair colour, as explained above, it can even make darker hair to lighter colour, but you need to have lot of patience and apply 3-4 times, and you do not need bleaching which is quite harmful for hair.
