Katam powder is obtained by grinding the leaves of a shrub of the Buxaceae family, widespread in the desert and rocky areas of Yemen, and is a renowned dyeing herb that gives it a dark brown tone.
HAIR: In addition to being a natural dye, it is volumizing, strengthening and restructuring, with antibacterial and antifungal properties.
DYEING NOTES: Used alone it allows to obtain an intense and natural brown without the need to add Henna. The coloring will be much less dark than Indigo: Katam has more purplish tones, so it can be added in small percentages to Henna if you want to get more purplish or plum shades.
Natural blond hair must do Katam twice or first red Henna and then Katam.
White hair must first do the red Henna and then the Katam (or mix of Katam and other dyeing herbs) to obtain a homogeneous coverage.
Please note: Do not apply pure on white, bleached or light blond hair to avoid unpleasant and unwanted green/blue color changes; in this case, a first application of red Henna (for about 20/30 minutes) is recommended, to direct white hair towards copper tones, and a subsequent application of Katam. Do not bleach hair colored with katam.
HISTORY and FUN FACT: Yemeni women have always used this plant to obtain darker hair, as they cannot dye their hair black for religious reasons.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: mix a sufficient quantity of powder with warm water, until you obtain the consistency of a yogurt, wait 10 minutes. To obtain a greater grip, the paste can be alkalized by adding very little bicarbonate or a pinch of salt. Apply to perfectly cleansed hair from roots to lengths. Leave on for 1/2 hours. Rinse thoroughly and make a light and diluted shampoo, like our shampoo with Sardinian wild helichrysum. A final rinse with water and vinegar helps keep the color longer
