Hey guys! Today I come to you with a review of Venita paints. These are herbal hair dyes with ingredients entirely derived from natural, vegan and organic cosmetics at very good prices.
I have been recommending these paints on Instagram for a long time, because they interested me from the moment they appeared in drugstores. First of all, I was tempted by the price for this capacity, which in the case of henna was very good and replaced me with another company that I usually bought, but unfortunately it has already disappeared from the market … , they are also easy to buy – they are available at Natura and Hebe drugstores. However, I decided to do a preliminary and collective review of these paints before going on to discuss each of them and my dyes. As you know, I recently finally ventured into using indigo in my hair dye, although I’m still a bit worried about it. However, I tried these three shades of brown and I have to admit that they work great. Additionally, I was going to mix them with Cassia, just in case. Hair can always be darkened, but indigo is harder to lighten. If you are interested in what I think about the new herbal Venita paints, I invite you to review and my effects.

As I mentioned in the introduction, I was interested in the new shades of henna. The Venita bronzes interested me the most. Until now, I have dyed my hair with amla, cassia, senna and other herbal mixtures prepared by myself. It was a light, warm brown color. I also considered ready-made brown blends because I wanted a cooler shade that is hard to do with Amla alone. However, I was afraid of too dark the color because of the indigo I use for the first time. That’s why I have dyed my hair with these mixtures recently. I was hoping for a warm brown color.
Nut brown is the best solution for me here, because not only is it the lightest shade, it doesn’t darken the hair that much later and you don’t have to mix it with other herbs and shades, such as cassia or senna. So a ready mix to apply even for light browns, without fear of too dark color.
The colors of brown and chestnut brown, however, were mixed with the previously detached cassia to refresh the nice color of the hair, but not to build it up too much. Both are similar to each other, of course the brown was darker and the chestnut had nice warm tones with red in a certain light which I really liked. For darker hair, it will definitely work as a ready-to-use mixture.
However, under these browns I had to use pure henna, properly acidified of course, and they will get it, because the same colors could not catch on my gray hair at the temples and roots. Unfortunately, this is often the case with me with herbal blends. But two-step dyeing worked well. You might think it’s a bit longer and more cumbersome, but I’m sure everything will cover nicely and your hair won’t get damaged. On the contrary, after each such dyeing, our hair is thicker. In addition, the scalp will strengthen and the hair will be soft, shiny and soft, so it is worth investing a little more time in it.
I used Cassia in the above mixtures and, of course, as an independent, deeply nourishing therapy for hair between dyes. I will definitely buy it again and again, because it is fresh and of really good quality for the price.
As already mentioned, I used henna for two-step dyeing and for blends. I also make a scalp lotion out of it, which sensationally accelerates hair growth. Now that I have started using indigo consciously and fearlessly, I will also try dyeing with my own mixture, which is even cheaper and supposedly sticks better.

Is it worth buying these paints? Yes, price and quality speak in their favor. They are completely natural, vegan and healthy, and also very easily available, and additionally often on promotion for PLN 15, which is simply the cheapest on the market and it is worth having a larger supply then 😉 The herbs are well ground and fresh, really good quality how for the price. I had no problems with mixing any of the blends, and the browns did not smell too intense, because like blight, sometimes the smell of such herbs can cause migraines when dyed. Henna and Cassia had the color and smell of fresh herbs, they acidified quickly and gave off a strong dye.
In the Venita herb package we get two bags of herbs, 50 g each, a standard cap and gloves, and the preparation instructions, which should be left for future dye mixtures. This division into two portions is great, because this amount is enough for regrowth or short hair, nothing will be wasted and nothing will lie stale.
I highly recommend these herbal hair dyes: great quality for a good price and really worth trying out for yourself!
