Finding natural red colorant is a search for the h

Reviewer: A viewer from Winston-Salem, NC US 02/03/14

All reviewers thus far have agreed at least on one thing, the final color is not red/pink/orange or anything close. What I very strongly disagree with is that the alternative is an attractive color. Mine immediately turned an extremely undesirable black, sludge-like color. At the time I purchased this the production description clearly read, "Hibiscus flowers contain natural red pigment that can be obtained by infusing the flowers in oil." I followed Nature's Garden own herbal infusion instructions, and consulted multiple times with staff. But nothing changed this ugly color. This was my first real disappointment from Nature's Garden. There are plenty of other natural colorants sold here that are close to its original color and will look beautiful in your soap. You may still want to buy this for its considerable health benefits, but as my main goal was a reddish color it was a complete waste of money.

Description is misleading

Reviewer: A viewer from Cassville, PA US 12/23/13

Thankfully I had done my research and knew before hand that if you are using hibiscus as a color additive the end result will be a blue color. Hibiscus will never tint anything red or even pink. If you aren't using any type of heat to make your product, you can achieve a lavender. However, I still give it four stars because it is a great additive for soaps and other bath items.

No pink or red here!

Reviewer: A viewer from Havana, FL 06/19/15

Don't be fooled by the color, this will NOT color your soaps red or pink! Every time I use it it turns my soap a brown color.

AMAZING in shampoo!

Reviewer: A viewer from Gowanda, NY USA 01/24/15

I have been using this at 1 teaspoon per 8 oz of NG's No Tear Baby Shampoo, with about 10 drops of fo, and no added color. I must say this has almost STOPPED my hair fall out, tinted my premature gray's a most beautiful auburn color (matches my natural auburn highlights perfectly), and it makes my hair feel fuller, stronger and has more natural shine. I don't need to wash my hair everyday anymore either. I'm only washing every other day due to I have bangs that stick up everywhere lol. I just want everyone to know that I have been coloring my hair for over 20 yrs and have stopped for about a year to let my natural mousey-brown with auburn highlights grow back in. I'm 43 and have VERY natural baby fine hair. I'm so VERY pleased with the Hibiscus Flower Powder that I will never use any other shampoo additive again! Thank you NG!!!

This will not dye your soap red/pink!

Reviewer: A viewer from Greenville, TX US 08/28/13

I removed one star due to the fact this claims to dye soaps red/pink, and my soap came out the colour of a wet pumice stone. While this was not the colour I desired, I like the colour it came out to be even better than I expected!

Incorrect Description

Reviewer: A viewer from Brookhaven, MS US 03/27/14

From reading previous reviews, I knew that this product was not going to leave a red or pink color as described. But the resulting blue in MP was a very nice color I thought. In CP, it turns a tan or brown.
