No. Popular drugstore brand dyes use chemicals such as PPD (voted allergen of the year in 2006) to penetrate the beard follicle and colour from within delivering a solid, often flat and “fake” looking beard. Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye is a 100% herbal plant based dye that contains no chemicals and no additives whatsoever. It is a pure herbal dye made from a proprietary blend of six different plants. It is not normal to have any type of reaction. It’s like placing a potato peel on your skin…the odds of having an allergic reaction are pretty remote!
Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye is made up entirely of plants/herbs. Below are the ingredients of each shade:
It depends on the length and type of beard. If you have a goatee, it should last you four to eight months. If you have a stubble beard, it should last you four to six weeks. If you have a ZZ Top beard, it is enough for one or two applications.
Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye will work for everybody, but some stubborn beards may require some patience and persistence. Being a natural product, our beard dye works differently from one beard to the next depending on the coarseness of the hair follicle and nature of your particular beard. You might have to experiment in order to come up with the ideal application for you. The best way to break in a very stubborn beard, is to use cling wrap over your face during the application process for both the Organic Base and dye. This will keep the warm moisture in and give the dye and base an extra boost. Use The Organic Base for the full 30 minutes, completely wash out, and then use the dye for the full 30 minutes. Rest assured our team of beard dye experts are standing by to help you achieve your desired results. And remember, there isn’t a beard the mountain man can’t colour!
If not satisfied, return the unused portion of the beard dye for full refund within two weeks from the date of receipt.
No, it will not stain your face if used as directed. Rinse thoroughly after use, avoiding any soaps or moisturizers as these may affect the performance of the product.
The product itself is a green powder made of plants and herbs that have natural oxidation properties. When mixed with very hot water, the dye paste will lather on dark green, and will oxidize within a few hours to the desired colour. If your beard has a green tinge to it immediately after applying, all this means is the dye has been absorbed by your beard and requires a time to oxidize. For most men this means 30 minutes, other, more coarse beards, will take up to 24 hours. This is why the first step in our instructions is to apply on a Friday night with nothing to do the next day. It will give you time to see how your particular beard reacts with Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye.
After the first application, some beards will oxidize immediately into brown/black whereas others will take several hours. We recommend that you apply at night before going to bed (especially the first few applications until you know how your beard reacts with the herbal dye). The next morning, you will be able to appreciate the colour absorbed and adjust your exposure accordingly. Remember that the dye will continue to darken slightly over the next 24 to 48 hours.
If you have a coarse and resistant beard, you must first apply Grizzly Mountain Organic Base before applying the organic black beard dye. The organic base coats your beard follicles and allows for the absorption of the organic black beard dye.
Grizzly Mountain Organic Base is composed of natural herbs and plant dye. It is 100% chemical free. It was developed in order to address two problems encountered by some individuals with organic dye. Firstly, it was developed to enable resistant and coarse beard follicles to absorb the organic color (especially the black) and secondly, as a way of eliminating and controlling unwanted purplish tinge.
Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye will last 7-14 days depending on the nature of your particular beardt. Like any other dye, it will last until regrowth appears.
No. At the moment, Grizzly Mountain Beard Dye is only available online at our website and through Amazon.
Don’t panic - the purple is due to your beard absorbing too much indigo over the other ingredients, or using soaps/oils/balms/lotions/creams that strip away the other ingredients and leave too much indigo, or using lotions/balms/oils that affect the oxidation process of the dye. Remember that our dye works differently from man to man, and it seems that some beards (about 10%) are extremely sensitive to the indigo in the black/dark brown dye.
We would recommend AVOIDING SOAP (and any other beard products) for at least 24-48 hours after application, and using the Organic Base for 30 minutes then the dye for 15 minutes only. If you do develop purple, do not apply the dark brown/black dye again until you neutralize it with the Organic Base. There is no specific time you have to wait before applying the Organic Base again if purple is still present. Applying the dye again to a purple beard will only add more indigo and worsen the problem. If possible, trim your beard down and restart on a fresh beard. Remember, with herbal dye, changing your application technique will drastically change your results.
The most effective technique against the purple tinge is:
1. Wash your beard thoroughly with hot water
2. In a bowl, mix two heaping teaspoons of the Organic Base with near boiling water until you have the consistency of ketchup.
3. Apply the Organic Base to your beard liberally WHILE STILL WARM, and let sit for 30 minutes
4. Wash out thoroughly with hot water
5. Immediately apply the dye in the exact same way you applied the Organic Base and let sit for 10-15 minutes
