The world’s first long lasting natural hair colouring range with no peroxide, alcohol or ammonia and free from PPD. Simply add water, shake and apply. Daniel Field natural hair dye adds natural colour and covers grey hair naturally. For extra conditioning benefits re-apply the natural hair colour monthly. If, however your query is not listed here please contact us!

1. How do I choose a hair colour?
Because Daniel Field Watercolour does not contain hydrogen peroxide, ammonia or alcohol, they will not lighten your hair. The advice we would give to customers using these shades for the first time is that these colours come up about a shade darker than any other make of colour so it is always a good idea to choose a shade which is lighter than you think you are or want to be - even if you have never coloured your hair before start with a lighter shade as you can always go darker next time if you need to.

2. Can I lighten my hair with Daniel Field Watercolour?
Because Daniel’s Water Colour contains no lightening agents such as ammonia, peroxide or alcohol that would be damaging to the hair it will simply add colour.
If you have recently coloured your hair with a darker shade or have some naturally darker pigment remaining, adding colour, even a lighter shade, can increase darkening rather than reduce it. On the other hand, as the colour grows out, where there is re-growth at the roots and temples or elsewhere, Daniel recommends that you treat only the re-growth and blend this in with the rest of your hair and continue treating the re-growth over a period to achieve the results you require.
In any event, to avoid over darkening if you are colouring regularly, you should only treat the re-growth and blend in with the rest of your hair. When carrying out the colouring process using your normal treatment timing of up to one hour, the remaining solution may be applied to the rest of you hair during the last ten to fifteen minutes. This will ensure that the rest of your hair receives a “semi-permanent” treatment which will wash out and/or fade prior to your next application – keeping your hair shade in balance.

3. Semi, Demi or Permanent hair dye?
Similar to Simply Hair Natural Colours, Watercolour is a Semi, a Demi, or a Permanent. and lasts as long as you require:

1) Applied to damp hair it is semi-permanent. (Lasts up to 6 washes. No grey coverage).
2) Applied to well towel-dried hair it lasts up to 21 washes and covers up to 50% grey.
3) Applied to dry hair it is a permanent tint and colours up to 100% grey.

4. Can I use Watercolour over Henna?
Daniel Field Watercolour can be used over pure Henna. Please be aware that some Henna products may contain metallic salts/dyes, these are compound Henna’s and are not suitable to use in conjunction with Watercolour. If you are unsure if your Henna contains metallic salts/dyes then you should contact the manufacturer. As always please make sure you do a strand test before application.

5. What ingredients are in Daniel Field Watercolour?
All Daniel Field Watercolour shades contain:

1) Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate
Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate is a highly effective, well researched and very safe detergent powder. This can be used in any task requiring the removal of natural oils from the skin and hair and so you could find it also in shower and body wash, hand wash and bubble bath formulations.
We use this for its thickening and degreasing effect and its ability to create excellent foam. By all environmental (green), purity and safety standards this is the perfect ingredient. This ingredient scores the highest score of 100 on the bio-renewable carbon index and is also and ingredient of such internally used products as toothpaste and enemas.
2) Sodium Percarbonate
Sodium Percarbonate is a powder that once mixed with water provides a weak source of active oxygen. Active oxygen is required to produce the series of reactions to create the myriad of dye shades achievable. Unlike hydrogen peroxide, sodium percarbonate is perfectly stable and in the low concentrations required here, no hair damage or hair lightening occurs whatsoever.
3) Sodium Sulphate
Sodium Sulphate helps in "levelling". This means that it helps to reduce negative charges on hair fibre so that the dyes can penetrate evenly at these mild pH levels.
4) Sodium Silicate
Sodium Silicate and water act as a dye fixative for Water Colour. Water Colour works in a mildly alkaline pH and sodium silicate enables the dyes within to react with the outer layers of the hair’s fibre. After the dye is applied it is covered with a plastic cap to retain water moisture, then left to process for about 35 to forty minutes at room temperature.
5) Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcostinate is derived from sarcosine, a natural amino acid that forms the building blocks of many living things, both animal and vegetable. In this case, vegetable derived sarcostinate has been used as an ultra-safe, ultra-mild foaming agent combined with sodium dodecyl sulphate. 6) Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum is a natural gum derived from sugar used here to keep the mixed product thick enough not to separate once the foam subsides.
May also contain the following pigments or dyes (depending on shade):

• p-toluene diamine sulphate
• m-amino phenol sulphate
• 4-amino-2-hydroxytoluene sulphate
• p-aminophenol sulphate
• 2,4-diaminophenoxyethanol hel
• 4-amino-m-cresol 1
• 2-amino 6-chloro-4-nitrophenol sulphate
• 2-methyl-5-hydroxyethylaminophenol
• 4-amino-2-hydroxytoluene

6. How safe are the ingredients of Daniel Field Watercolour?

These scores take into account a combination of potential cancer, allergy, skin and eye irritation risks:
0 to 2 = proven safe
3 to 5 = some concerns or need of further research data or restricted to minimum concentrations
6 to 8 = concerns, research data has shown some issues
9 to 10 = could be hazardous, still permitted in EU pending clearer evidence
Note: None of the ingredient in either our base formula or shade formulae exceed a score of 4 on this scale.
