Frequently Asked Questions
What is Herbatint?
Herbatint is a permanent hair colorant gel with a natural herbal base that contains NO AMMONIA, but will cover grey 100% and can lighten you hair up to 2 shades.
Tell me about Phenylenediamines, or PPD's as they are frequently called.
Phenylenediamines (PPD's) are chemically synthesized ingredients and are the color 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 colorants containing PPDs with cancer in humans. However a small percentage of people develop an allergy to permanent hair color pigments. This can result in a serious reaction. If you have been diagnosed as having an allergy to:
- p-phenylenediamine (PPD or Para Dyes)
The above list is not exhaustive, and the allergy can unfortunately arise at any point, irrespective of how long you have been coloring 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 color.
Does Herbatint contain Phenylenediamines (PPD's)?
Like all permanent hair color products Herbatint does contain PPD's, which are the only type of pigments that will fix in the hair shaft.
Will Herbatint cover my grey?
Herbatint covers grey 100% on its first application. If you are 25% grey or more remember to mix your chosen fashion shade (gold, copper or mahogany) with the appropriate number from the natural series. For instance target shade 6D (Dark golden blonde) with 6N (Dark blonde). For 30% grey mix 1/3 6N with 2/3 6D. For 50% grey, or more mix ½ 6N with ½ 6D. Some grey hair can be particularly resistant. Here are some hairdresser tips:
- Having applied the tint gently massage the root hair for about 5 minutes concentrating on the hairline, parting and temple areas.
- Mix 10ml of color with 10ml of developer and apply to the obvious grey roots. Leave this for 20 minutes and then apply your color, as usual, over the top and commence as normal.
- Apply color to root area and using a hand-held dryer gently warm the most resistant areas for about 5 minutes.
I don't want to use a permanent color because I don't like to see an obvious re-growth.Herbatint can be mixed and used like a tone on tone color that will gradually fade over 16-20 shampoos resulting in less obvious root re-growth. Mix, for example, 30mls of Herbatint with 15ml of Glycol developer and 15ml of Normalizing Shampoo. Apply to pre-shampooed, towel-dried hair and develop for 20-25 minutes.
Why should I use Normalizing Shampoo and Royal Cream Conditioner?
Unlike the ammonia-based colorants Herbatint works at a low pH which means that we can close the hair cuticles after tinting, by using Herbatint's Normalizing Shampoo and Royal Cream Conditioner. This will result in color that will not fade to the extent of ammonia-based colorants. The hair will feel soft and smooth and with the cuticle closed the hair will reflect light and look shinier.
I have had chemotherapy treatment and would like to color my hair.
Herbatint has many customers who have had cancers and have used the colorants quite safely. We would not recommend use of permanent colors in these cases, but if you are determined to color your hair it is far safer to use Herbatint as it contains NO AMMONIA and deposits far less potentially hazardous substances into the blood system.
I am pregnant and I have been told that permanent hair colors can be potentially dangerous for my unborn child.
Again, as with cancer sufferers Herbatint would not recommend the use of permanent hair colors while pregnant. However, many of our customer do use the colors in these instances; Jane Leeves the actress from the T.V. program 'Frazier' has openly claimed that her hairdresser used Herbatint on her hair while she was pregnant. NO AMMONIA means far less of the product finds its way into they blood system.
Can I use Herbatint on my beard?
Herbatint is not recommended for use on facial hair, however, we do know many customers who use it very successfully for this purpose. Avoid swallowing any - it tastes disgusting! DO NOT use on eyebrows, or eyelashes.
I have had allergic reactions to ammonia tints in the past; will I react to Herbatint?
In practice, we have found that approximately 85% of people who have reacted in the past DO NOT react to Herbatint. With NO AMMONIA present very little of the product penetrates the epidermis and consequently does not enter the blood system. However, we still strongly advise performing a skin test prior to tinting your hair. A small number of people have allergic reactions to all kinds of substances.
What is Vegetal color?
Vegetal color is a true semi-permanent color that lasts 6-8 shampoos. It imports shine and condition to the hair with a hint of color. Vegetal color contains NO AMMONIA, NO PEROXIDE and NO DIAMINOBENZENE.
Will Vegetal cover my Grey?
If you are experiencing the first few grays Vegetal will tone these to look like natural lights in your hair. If you are more than 10% grey you need to use Herbatint which can be mixed as a tone on tone color and will cover your grey.
Can I change my hair color with Vegetal color?
Vegetal color will brighten your natural shade, but will not alter it.
