First apply henna paste in hair and post washing, apply indigo paste as a 2nd step to achieve the final shade.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1-STEP AND 2-STEP METHOD?

1-step or 1-pot method is great for someone looking for covering greys and has limited time (3-4 hours processing). We can achieve Auburn to dark brown with this method. Also when starting new with 1-step process, few individuals with resistant greys, extensive front greys, non-porous hair may require 1-2 repeat applications to achieve best color and coverage results. Most see great coverage within 2-3 regular applications. With 2-step process, you will notice 100% Colour & Coverage right in the 1st attempt. Shades achieved are dark brown to Jet black. It has longer processing time. Henna step requires anywhere between 4-6 hrs of processing. Plant toner or Indigo step is 60-90 mins processing. This is ideally spread around 2 days. One notices hair quality & texture improvement within 6-8 months with this method.

YES!!! You can very well do KERATIN treatment over SVA plant-based hair dyes. Hair treated with SVA Henna & Indigo, DO NOT interact with any salon / chemical treatment including chemical dyes. However, remember any heat treatment will further intensify (darken) your hair colour.

CAN I USE CHEMICAL DYE OVER HAIR TREATED WITH SVA HAIR DYE?

YES, you can very well use chemical dyes on hair treated with SVA plant-based hair dyes. However, if planning to lighten the hair shade you might need repeat application with chemicals to achieve the desired light colour. We recommend to avoid bleach on SVA Plant Dyes treated hair. Using hair bleach on henna treated hair can result in greenish tint for some.

CAN I USE HAIR OIL ON HAIR TREATED WITH SVA HENNA/ INDIGO?

YES, you can very well use hair oil on hair treated with SVA plant dyes. However it is noticed that in some people, coconut oil has the tendency to lighten the hair colour slightly. This is not true for everyone. In such scenario we recommend to switch to alternative hair oil like sweet almond, sesame seed or any other oil instead.

DO SVA PLANT DYES WASH OUT??

NO! SVA plant-based hair dyes are almost permanent. SVA Henna stains hair permanently, while SVA Indigo dye will fade slightly in couple of months. For many the slight fading may be noticed after 200-300 shampoos.There are however instances where the dye may be stripped from hair due to strong surfactants found in certain shampoos. In such case switch your shampoo for colour treated hair. To give you a classic example of how permanent henna is, apply some henna paste on your fingernails (keratin same as your hair). You will notice, the henna stain on fingernail is permanent. It cannot be rinsed off!!

HOW FREQUENTLY CAN I USE SVA HAIR DYES?

SVA plant-based hair dyes are 100% natural, high quality herbs that are gentle for your hair & scalp. They add immense benefits with repeat applications and help improve the hair texture. Since they are 3rd party lab-tested for adulterants like PPD, Ammonia & Metallic salts, SVA plant dyes are safe to use as frequently as every 15 days for root touch-ups.
