Mixing katam for brown hair:

-Wrap your hair and allow to sit for 3-4 hours.
-Rinse or wash your paste out (you can also co-wash)
-Your hair’s color will settle over the next 2 days.
How to store your powder: henna in your freezer and katam in your fridge or cool dark place
How to store your paste: throw leftovers away as the paste does not freeze or keep well.

Katam has been wonderful to keep my color softer brown. I have grey hair and with all the products from Henna Sooq my hair is thick and beautiful, and not grey...thanks !!!

It worked great with my henna mixture (Indian henna, amla, katam and hibiscus powder). It helped to create a cherry cola hue to my dreads. I'm glad I made this purchase.

I did tons of research and found that this product is great for toning down the red in natural henna and also great for glosses. I've used this product at least 4 times now and it is great! No overpowering smell, works wonderfully, and definitely creates darker tones of red and/or medium brown tones.
