Herbatint contains PPD and therefore a 48 hour skin test is advisable prior to EVERY use as stated on the packaging to test for sensitivity to ALL product ingredients.
Herbatint does NOT contain Ammonia, Resorcinol, Parabens, Fragrance and Alcohol. Herbatint has recently been proven in an independent Consumer Toxicology Report to be the least toxic hair colourant on the market when compared to conventional and other ‘natural’ brands.
When applying Herbatint for the first time, make sure to use the whole mixture and cover all the hair. This will ensure even coverage. For applying Herbatint on previously tinted hair just apply to the re-growth at the roots but take through to the ends for the last 5- 10 minutes only if you feel hair colour has faded. Avoid putting colour through to the ends every time you re-colour or you will get a build up of colour over time.
Mix: 30 mls Herbatint 15 mls Normalising Shampoo 15 mls Glycol Developer
Apply colour to hair that has been shampooed and towel dried. Leave to process for 20 -25 minutes before shampooing off.
Tips to help with colour selection
Click here to view the available colours and to find out which colours are best for your hair, and some extra colouring tips.
It is always wisest to select a colour close to your natural shade.
If hair has 50% or more grey, you will need to select a colour from the 'natural' range (base colours) numbered 1N - 10N.
You can if you wish mix in a proportion of the Ash, Copper, Golden and Mahogany range. In order to achieve a total coverage of grey with the Ash, Golden, Copper and Mahogany colour series, it is suggested to mix the chosen colour (40ml) with a natural series colour of the same number (20ml) or if more convenient 30mls of each works well. Always use equal quantities of colour with Glycol.
If your hair has less than 50% grey and you wish to just cover the grey, select a shade 1-2 shades lighter than the desired outcome because when you add colour onto colour it will always go darker.
If hair has little or no grey, the copper, ash, golden and mahogany shades can be used without mixing in a 'natural' base colour.
The 'C' series (Ash colours) may be used as 'colour correctors' to contain or control traces of red or gold tones just as the 'M' & 'R' (Red colours) can be used to control traces of ash.
Hair that has been coloured dark is sometimes difficult to lighten. Dark colours have larger pigments absorbed into the hair shaft leaving no room for the hair to absorb any lighter pigments. Light hair can readily absorb dark colours.
You should be able to lighten brown or chestnut hair by 1 to 2 shades and lighten up to three shades on light chestnut to blonde hair using Herbatint.
Dry, permed or colour treated hair tends to be more porous than normal hair and will take colours more readily. The effect will be more intense colour. You need to bare this in mind when making colour selection. If you have had a perm, wait at least one week before colouring.

Phenylenediamines (PPD's) are chemically synthesised ingredients and are the colour pigments used to alter your hair's natural shade. It has been suggested through research that PPD's are 'potentially' carcinogenic, i.e. cancer-causing agents. However, there is no evidence linking the use of hair colourants containing PPDs with cancer in humans.
However a small percentage of people develop an allergy to permanent hair colour pigments. This can result in a serious reaction. If you have been diagnosed as having an allergy to: p-phenylenediamine (PPD or Para Dyes) m-phenylenediamine p-aminophenol m-aminophenol
you should not use ANY Permanent Hair Colour.
The above list is not exhaustive, and the allergy can unfortunately arise at any point, irrespective of how long you have been colouring your hair. In light of this we strongly recommend that everyone follows the manufacturer's advice and do a skin test before EVERY application of permanent hair colour.
