Different. Beautiful. Natural.
Look forward to your new hair colour. Here you will find what you have to know so that everything works out perfectly. Plant-based hair dyes work differently from conventional hair dyes. They do not change the inner structure of the hair, but surround every single hair with a shining glaze. This also means – the application is easy and uncomplicated.

First of all: dye a test strand
So that you can be sure that the result of your hair dyeing is what you want to have, first of all dye a test strand. Ideally, dye a test strand at the lightest part of the hair or the part with the most greyness. Mix a tablespoon of dye according to the thickness and length of the strand and apply as described in the following. Does it look good? Then let’s go.
- Ayluna plant-based hair dye (one package is sufficient for approx. shoulder length hair)
- a bowl for mixing
- approx. 300 ml hot water
- a fork or whisk
- old towels for covering hair and textiles
- a paint brush for applying the dye
- Ayluna shampoo or ghassoul (rhassoul powder or wash cream)
- disposable gloves (included in this package)
- covering cap for the hair (included in this package)

Step 1 — Prepare the hair
In order for the plant-based hair dye to attach ideally to the hair, wash your hair with a natural cosmetic shampoo. If you nearly always use conventional hair care products, the use of our Ayluna Ghassoul products is recommended so that eventual deposits are removed and the colour can attach optimally. Do not use any care products such as conditioner before dyeing.
Step 2 — Mixing
Place the Ayluna plant-based hair dye in a bowl. Slowly mix with hot water to a viscous cream (you will need approx. 300 ml for a package). The dye mixture should be creamy, but not drip. Protect your clothes with a hairdressing cape or an old towel.
Step 3 — Application
When the dye has cooled down to a temperature that is comfortable for you, let’s get started. Using a paint brush, apply Ayluna plant-based hair dye strand by strand and evenly onto all the hair. Always start at the hairline. You can also »knead« the dye in, in order to cover the whole area. Done? Now put on the covering cap and cover it with a »towel turban«. Remove any dye residues from face, ears, and neck.
Step 4 — Let it soak
The optimal process time for the Ayluna plant-based hair dye is between 15 minutes and two hours. By dyeing the test strand you already know how much time you need for your hair. The general rule applies: very light and/or damaged hair needs a shorter time, whereas thick, dark hair and a healthy hair structure probably need more time. Make sure that the plant-based hair dye does not dry during process time.
Step 5 — Rinsing
Now rinse the plant-based hair dye out completely with plenty of warm water. While doing so, please do not use shampoo or any care products. Within 48 hours, the plant-based hair dye can develop its fullest potential. A possible tinge of green after dyeing will disappear within this time.
Tips, tricks and useful information
Concealing grey hair
With Ayluna plant-based hair dyes, a beautiful, natural-looking concealing of grey can be achieved. If your hair is more than 40% grey and you want to dye it a darker shade, it is best to do a so-called pre-pigmentation. First, dye your hair with Ayluna Maroon or Copper red (process time approx. 30 minutes) and directly afterwards with the desired shade of brown. Ayluna plant-based hair dye surrounds the hair with a shining glaze. This means that with regular application the longer hair is dyed more intensively and darker. Whoever wants to avoid this effect, just dyes the hairline more often instead.
It is possible to mix all Ayluna plant-based hair dyes as desired. Thus, you can create your very own favourite hair dye shade.
For an extra bit of care you can add a tablespoon of hair oil (e.g. Ayluna Wondertree) to the mixture.
Avoiding stains and discolouration
Plant-based hair dye on the skin can be removed by using a mixture of oil and lemon juice. Up to two weeks after dyeing, the hair can still »bleed« (lose some colour) when wet – that’s why you should protect clothes and bedclothes from contact with wet hair.
Chemically-dyed or permed hair
Both conventional hair dyes and perms bring chemical substances into the hair and have an aggressive effect on the structure of the hair. This may lead to adverse reactions if plant-based hair dyes are applied shortly after chemical dyeing or a perm. As a general rule: always leave an interval of ten hair washes and/or 3 weeks between these treatments. Plant-based dyed hair should never be bleached.
Dyeing blond / bleaching or lightening
Dyeing blond or lightening is generally not possible with natural plant-based hair dyes.
