21.37 EUR 23.75 EUR


Black Henna (Katam Buxus Dioica)

is the natural hair dye that helps you enhance brown or black hair and cover white/gray hair naturally (when mixed with red henna) obtaining different shades of brown, from light brown to dark brown or a dark violet brown hair color thanks to its purplish shades.

Black Henna,

thanks to its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties:

  • cleanses and restores the pH of the scalp &
  • promotes hair growth, 

resulting in a 100% natural beauty treatment for all hair types but particularly indicated for damaged, thin, flat hair.

Black Henna (or Katam Buxus Dioica), acts like the Indigo and it is used :

  • either alone to darken dark brown or black hair or
  • together with henna to obtain different shades of brown hair, from light brown to dark chocolate brown. 

It gives awesome results in covering grey/ white hair naturally and it also strengthens the hair leaving it soft, shiny & healthier looking.

Its shades are violet / purplish, while the indigo shades are bluish. While the indigo tends to wash out more easily, the katam lasts longer.

Every final color you shall obtain is subject to:

  • everyone's hair genetics, 
  • to the natural hair color, 
  • to how much color the hair is able to absorb &
  • whether the hair has been chemically dyed or not.

The Black Henna (or Katam Buxus Dioica), delicate and gentle natural hair dye on your scalp and on your hair, is the natural alternative to the chemical hair dyes. 

Its constant use on damaged, weak or thin hair, strengthens the hair leaving it voluminous, shiny & healthier looking with gorgeous, unique shades.

  • Every person will have a slightly different result based on the natural hair color and if the hair has been dyed chemically. 
  • Remember that the final hair color can be seen around 3 days after the natural hair dye treatment occurred. 
  • To avoid unpleasant surprises, make ALWAYS a test on a hidden strand of hair, prior to dyeing your hair.
  • The herbal hair colors do NOT contain any bleaching agent, therefore it is impossible to reach a lighter shade if your original hair color has a dark tone color. 

You may always vary the above recommended percentages according to your own needs and to the final color you wish to reach

Always make an allergy test on your skin 48 hours before using powdered herbs. 

Close the bag tightly after use. Keep out of the reach of children.

It is the best alternative to harsh chemical.

I am quite delighted with the finished outcome. It's something I'd buy again without a doubt. The sole disadvantage is the product's price.

Love it

I love these henna products. So great to be able to adjust the proportions to find the exact colour you like. It may take a little experimentation as we all have different hair. Beautilicious’s blog & videos have been invaluable to help you get there. Thank you!

This product is miss-sold as Katam. As it is actually Indigo.
I have been using Indigo for the last 5 years and can tell the difference.
I Actually want a refund for for my order as spent nearly 36 pounds for a product that is falsely advertised. very disappointed. Used one packet, please tell me how can i return the rest to get my full refund

Excellent Product

Not only did the product arrive after 3 working days from Italy to Dubai, but I was additionally surprised and delighted by the great quality of the products. The best henna quality I had in 8 years. Very smooth texture in the making and on the hair. Will experiment with color mixtures.
