Light Mountain is henna with other plant extracts, mixed to create varying shades from light strawberry through the reds, browns, mahogany, chestnut and black. They have 2 versions: the regular mix does not cover gray, but their gray-hair formulation is a 2 part application and it does cover the gray very well.
One caveat: I had great results with it, but I came into this world with hair the color of a dark-red Irish setter, so the stuff worked perfectly with my hair and complexion. It may not do that for everyone.
Also, it is just plain messy and time-consuming to use. It has to stay on for a good 45 minutes, each of the 2 parts, so I have to plan the evening around it. The mixture is the consistency of fine-ground grass and I actually like the smell, it smells like fresh-mown grass. But it's thick and gloppy, so when I rinse it out it clogs my pipes. I have to rinse most of it in a pan that I can toss out the back door, then use my plumbing for just the final rinseout.
It's worth it to me to have a vegan, cruelty-free and chem-free haircolor that I can afford. One other nice thing: it lasts a good 10-12 weeks, and as it grows out, it fades into the roots without leaving a definite root line, so I can get away with a little delay between colorings.
