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.

  • 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.

Excellent natural product to cover my increasing greys. I use red henna one day then wash it out then the following day I use a mix of Katam and Indigo. This works to cover greys but I find it washes out easily and greys re-appear within a month. I wish it lasted longer so may consider trying the Sidr as shampoo in future to see if it really does make a difference in making herbal hair dye last longer.

Love it

Very easy to use and finally grays are covered. I used 2 steps red one day Katam the next. It covered my grays but not really in my mom so I mixed a little katam left it on for about 2 hours and finally it darkened. But I learned from Rozalia how to use it again next time. 1 hour for red under the heat cap or hair dryer and 1 1/2 hr for katam with heat as well and that shorten my origin time do do all the colors the same day as apposed to how I did it the first time that had my scalp itching like crazy. It was because I leave the henna on to long I had them on each for about 4 or 5 hrs. But next time I will do what Rozalia says with shorter time and use proper heat that I did bout use last time. I know it gonna work fantastic. And the colors looking more beautiful everyday. As soon as a little grey comes in time for root only touch ups now. 🙏

Love it

I love the color and how shiny it makes my hair.

Thankyou very much!! Great products

I want to thankyou from the bottom of my heart :)
For the delivery and the katam +lawsonia+cassia, I just finished the 2 steps process and it looks very good. No white hair.
Finally! ( I developed a severe allergy to ppd.. and thanks to you I can color my hair again)

Great End Result

This review is for my 2nd application after 3 weeks of applying Lawson and Katam 50/50. This time I want to turn my 2% white hairs black by using Lawson on the first day and Katam on the following day. The Lawson dissolves quickly and easy to apply on my roots. It turned my black/dark brown hairs a shade of wine red and my white hairs almost a bright orange. Next day I applied the Katam, however, to my surprise I found the Katam very difficult to apply. The powder texture is thick and when added with warm water the powder bubbled up. Also, I kept having to add water to the mixture because it kept drying out and turns into chunks. This goes the same when applied on hair and it flicks to everywhere. Not happy! Reason it gets 5 stars is due to the end result. My black/dark brown hairs turned a dark walnut brown with hints of red wheni it catches the lights, and my white hairs a darker reddish brown (didn't turn black yet). I 'd really appreciate if you have some suggestions to make Katam easier to apply. Thank you!
