Enyo War Goddess Ruby Red Herbal Hair Color is our darkest red blend, trending towards ruby. Enyo was the Greek goddess of war, the female counterpart and close companion of the god Ares. Often depicted with deep red hair and covered in blood, Enyo so delighted in warfare that she even refused to take sides in the battle between Zeus and the monster Typhon, preferring the fight to go on as long as possible. This herbal hair color would be fitting for a war goddess, imparting vivid orange tones to lighter colored hair, and giving deep red warmth as well as amazing natural conditioning properties to darker colored hair.
Keep in mind, multiple applications will deepen the color from orange, to ruby red, to burgundy. Because of the henna content, Enyo dye will still flare orange in the sunlight.
Enyo War Goddess Herbal Hair Color is made entirely from powdered herbs, and contains no chemicals, metallic salts, or other additives.
This product contains significant amounts of henna, which is permanent and rarely fades like chemical reds. You cannot remove henna with a color remover, and bleaching it out will damage your hair long before you get rid of the orange. This product also contains small amounts of indigo, which is never encouraged to bleach over as failure to remove it all may result in greenish or blue tints to hair.
We HIGHLY recommend getting samples and strand testing before committing to henna.

Instructions & Storage
Instructions: All of our hair colors come with a full-color instructional brochure that you can also download here.
- In a bowl add the herbal powder. In a separate container heat distilled water until steaming but not boiling and add, mixing until you have a mud the consistency of pancake batter. Add a few drops of Essential Oil if you wish. Please research your EOs carefully.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set someplace warm. Atop a warm electronic, such as a computer tower works well, or under a warm lamp. Mix occasionally, letting sit for at least 2-4 hours, and no more than 6.
- When ready to use, wash hair but do not condition (or condition very lightly). Section towel-dried hair and work the herbal mud into the hair, making sure not to miss spots. Carefully pile hair atop the head and cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Leave on for 2-6 hours, the longer you leave it on the deeper the conditioning benefits and the more colored tones that will be imparted.
- Rinse well with water. If you find rinsing difficult, try soaking your hair in the bathtub or a bucket first, or use a lots of a cheap silicone-free conditioner (like VO5) to aid rinsing.
Storage: The powder can be stored in the freezer for well over a year, so long as it is kept in an airtight bag or container. The mud can be kept frozen for 6 months, and may yield a better stain if frozen.
