Deep red hair dye works on all hair types. All-natural plant product; no chemicals, no PPD, no ammonia, no metallic salts
Mix with browns for super-rich browns. Deep red will not make your hair go lighter. If you have black hair deep red might not be visible. Deep red is great for dark brown and lighter colors. White hair will be very bright and might need a second application to deepen it up, or you can mix indigo or browns in with it. You can mix any EarthDye colors to create more colors.
100 grams EarthDye Deep Red
No chemicals mean this color will not lighten your current hair color. This color will turn gray/white/silver/blonde hair into a vibrant dark cherry red shade. Any darker strands of hair will become very beautiful shades of deep red giving multi-tonal coloring.
100 grams powder is enough to do mid-back length hair one application. The length of your hair will stay this color, only the new hair growth will need to be touched up as it comes in. Typically hair grows about 1/ 4 inch a month.

I have been using EarthDye for about five years now. I tried just letting my hair grow out natural grey/white but just couldn’t handle it as the longer it got, the more I looked like a witch! Haha. (I’m 67 and I’m not enjoying looking old!). I tried a few of the colors and pretty much ended up using the Mighty Oak Dark Brown. After a couple of years decided to start doing my root touch-ups with the Deep Cherry Red. It has since grown to where the red goes past the tops of my shoulders while the dark brown is at the bottom part. It’s become a natural ombré I get many, many compliments on my hair. I can get four uses out of each pack as I just do my roots normally. So it’s VERY inexpensive. I tell everyone who asks about Earthdye! I also just bought the shampoo and conditioner. I haven’t used it enough to review, though. I took pictures but can’t find where to post them. I’ll keep using Earthdye as long as I don’t want to give into grey/white hair!!!! I LOVE all plant-based without chemicals!!!!!
Wow Rene’! Thank you so much for that awesome review! We would have loved to see the ombre! YOU can upload before and after photos on our contact page and if they are good quality and we can upload them to our website, we will send you a free pack of hair dye!

I LOVE this dye! Been a devoted customer of EarthDye since the company had its first name! For *over a decade,* I have relied on this henna for keeping my hair a bold, cherry red, while letting my highlights shine through. And it doesn’t hurt or weaken my curls AT ALL, (unlike commercial chemical dyes, which ruined my curl!)
I love it. And get compliments about my red all the time.
Glad you can keep the curl! Thank you so much for the review
I have been using Deep Red for years and can’t agree more with what Sofia said, ” I’ve been using Deep Red for years and there’s no comparison to any other henna brand.” I have dark brown hair with gray… because the gray hair colors differently, everyone thinks that I got red highlights. Thank you Earth Dyes for making me look younger for years.

I LOVE this colour! I’ve been using Deep Red for years and there’s no comparison to any other henna brand. I get so many compliments on my hair! What I love most about this product is the effect. I have dark brown hair and am starting to get some silver. I actually wish I had more silver now, because I love the brilliant yet natural-looking red I get from this henna. So on my silver hair, I get a vibrant red, and on my dark brown hair, I get red highlights that glimmer in the sun. The result is a highlighted effect of obvious red and mingled with hints of red … it’s gorgeous.
My daughter has lighter hair than I do and also loves this product. The colour she gets is a more obvious red due to her lighter hair shade, and it’s gorgeous. I also find Earth Dye henna to be easier to wash out of my hair than other brands, and easier to mix, which are more bonuses.
Thank you for the review Sofia!

If you’re looking for a strong red color this is it! I have dark brown hair and it still showed up really well. In the sun it basically glows. I purchased the dye application brush and I have to say it really helped make application much easier. Love that it is natural and non-toxic!

Amazing! Evened out my natural hair color and the deep red is very nice. I have an ashy light brown color and the deep red turned out very vibrant/dark red I love it!! Hair feels healthy and looks shiny!
Thank you Heidi! Would love to see a picture!! Send us a before and after and get a free pack with free shipping!

Long time customer for so many years now. My mom and I love the natural hair dye and cosmetic products and service has been great. Always prompt reply and shipping. I usually use this Deep Red and my mom prefers the Burgundy, but both are beautiful on our naturally mousey blonde hair. Can’t count the number of compliments I receive on my hair color. Highly recommend this product.
Thanks again for the wonderful product and experience!

I am a long-time customer. I’ve used other henna products but this natural hair dye is of a higher quality, clean, and fine which provides easier and better application. It completely covers gray in one application while some other products require two. The colors are vibrant, and long-lasting which as someone who previously used chemical color truly appreciates the healthier alternative without comprising on the result. Best customer service too!
Thank you, Melissa!! P.S Deep red is back in stock!

I have been using natural hair dye for many years and enjoy this product from EarthDye the most. This cherry red (deep red) is so vibrant and if mixed just perfectly with other colors. Let’s just say the color is unique and beautiful. I always receive many compliments about my hair and the color stays rich for quite a long time. I have grey hair and even those color beautifully all the way down to the root; however, I do use the amla to keep my hair darker than most people my age. Also, it is very important what you put in your body; I am ovo-vegetarian and stay alkaline, as much as possible. Try putting in some Fage yogurt in the mix it, and makes it much easier to rinse out of your hair. Thanks, EarthDye you rock!
Thank you Irubi! Great information!
Come on, you can do it! When are we getting the best colour back?

I wanted to tell you that I am so excited to have found you and your line of EarthDye. I have been using henna since 2012 and was told to use lemon to mix with it and to wear it for 4 hours. My hair started to be bristle and it was quite inconvenient. I’m grateful for your method and absolutely loved how it turned out, such rich color. I did it 7 weeks ago and the color stayed rich for 6 weeks, now I’m ready to do my roots again. Thank you!!! You have a customer for life.

Product arrived promptly after easy order on this website. Product was easy to use and after following the instructions on the package I have a beautiful deep red just as the color says! Thank goodness! I finally have found a good one. I have used henna for more than 20 years now (I am 40+ now) and after trying various hennas in many countries, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and now the US. The best was in Germany with a brilliant red and now this product from Earth Dyes, and after only 90 mins (instead of the usual 3 hours). I have tried numerous hennas here in the US but this the best. I have medium dark brown hair (no greys) and now I have a beautiful deep red auburn color! It’s very difficult to find one that will color the dark brown with any meaningful color. Thank you Earth Dyes I will be back for more and definitely recommend.
