This madder powder by Phitofilos is mainly used for the hair colouring purposes. It has a purple and blue to reddish colour, which comes from the purpurin contained in the root. Thus, it has the ability to accentuate the cooler hues of reds. Unlike henna, madder is more suited to being mixed with other plant colours.
When mixed with henna, the colour is intensified for a strawberry to raspberry shade when mixed with turmeric or rhubarb, the result is a peachy tone.
Application: Mix the plant powder with hot water to obtain a smooth paste. Let the paste rest for approximately 10 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and towel dry the hair. Apply the paste starting at the roots, through the length of the hair, and leave on for 30-90 minutes. Rinse thoroughly once finished.
