How Tints of Nature Works
To colour hair the outer layers (cuticle) of the hair needs to be opened up by raising its natural pH level. There are two methods to colouring hair the traditional chemical way and the alternative Tints of Nature method.
The Traditional Chemical Way
The traditional way to colour hair uses a chemical substance with a very high pH (such as ammonia) to force open the hair cuticle. This means the hair cuticle is forced so wide open that essential protein and moisture is lost and the natural pH of the hair is raised so high it’s impossible to restore it back to normal after colouring. Therefore, the hair cuticle stays open and makes colour retention a problem.
Side-Effects of Chemical Colouring:
The Alternative Tints of Nature Way
Tints of Nature has developed an alternative, much gentler and more effective way to colour hair. We use an alkaline moisturising substance to raise the pH of hair instead of harsh chemicals. Our moisturiser softens and lifts the cuticle slightly to allow the colour to penetrate inside the hair, but maintain hair’s essential protein and moisture.
Tints of Nature colours don’t take hair as far from its natural point on the pH scale as chemical colours do. After colouring, our specially formulated shampoos and conditioners return hair to its natural pH level, fully closing the cuticle and leaving the hair undamaged by the colouring process. With a completely closed cuticle, colour is securely sealed within the cortex of the hair and there's much less colour fade than with the traditional method.
Will Tints of Nature cover grey hair?
Oh by jiminy, yes it will. All of the natural shades 1N - 8N will cover 100% of grey hair. If you’re using one of the fashion shades you just need to mix it with the same amount of the natural shade with the same number.
25ml 7D + 25ml 7N + 50ml Colourfix = fabulous fashion colour that covers grey
The only shade that may not 100% cover all grey is 10N.
Can Tints of Nature be used over another hair colour product?
Yes, unless your current hair colour product contains metals or henna. If your current hair colour contains lead acetate, zinc, iron or copper you need to wait at least a month before using Tints of Nature and make sure you give your hair a really good regular shampoo to wash away any metallic residue.
The same thing goes for henna, which leaves a waxy residue on your hair and means it won’t absorb the colour properly. Leave it a month, shampoo regularly and then go for a lovely Tints of Nature shade.
Are Tints of Nature products suitable for vegans and vegetarians?
Tints of Nature is very happy to say that all their colours are suitable for vegans and vegetarians. And so are the Tints of Nature Shampoo, Conditioner, Reconstructing Treatment and Seal & Shine. Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Scalp Treatment both contain a milk derivative, so vegans might not want to use these.
Can any unused colour be saved and used for another application?
Yes and no. If you’ve already mixed the colour with Colourfix, it can’t be used again at a later date and you should dispose of it.
If you’ve got unmixed colour left in the bottle that should last for several months – so yes you can use it again. Just make sure you’ve sealed the bottle properly and store it in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
I am pregnant. Can I colour my hair?
Most research, although limited, shows that it’s safe to colour your hair while pregnant. Some studies have found that very high doses of the chemicals in hair dyes may cause harm. However, these doses are massive compared to the very low amount of chemicals that a woman colouring her hair is exposed to.
Tints of Nature recommends waiting to dye hair until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the risk of chemical substances harming the baby is much lower. If you’re colouring your hair yourself, you can reduce the risk further by making sure that you:
Leave the colour on for the minimum time.
Work in a well-ventilated room.
Highlighting your hair or using “off the scalp” techniques also reduces any risk. The chemicals used are only absorbed by your hair, and not by your scalp or bloodstream.
Semi-Permanent colours are a better alternative whilst pregnant; however a sensitivity test is still recommended.
Do remember that pregnancy can affect your hair’s normal condition. For example, your hair may:
React differently to colouring or perming than it usually does.
Become more or less absorbent, frizzy or unpredictable.
It’s always a good idea to do a strand test first, using the hair dye or treatment that you intend to use.
Can Tints of Nature be used by people undergoing chemotherapy?
Sadly they don’t advise you use Tints of Nature if you’re having chemotherapy, radiotherapy or other forms of treatment. If you do decide to colour your hair, have a chat with your doctor first and make sure you carry out a sensitivity test. After you’ve finished treatment you may be able to colour your hair once you’ve got an inch of growth. Use semi-permanent hair colour for the first few months until your hair becomes stronger.
My hair needs colouring but it’s dry so I don’t want to risk damaging it further. Can I use Tints of Nature?
Happily, Tints of Nature won’t damage your hair so you are fine to colour it. Tints of Nature shampoos and conditioners will help to repair the damage and restore the natural protein and moisture balance of the hair.
How can I darken the ends of my hair without having all my hair coloured?
Choose the same colour as before, mix 25mls colour with 25mls Colourfix in a clean plastic bowl, add a small amount of Tints of Nature shampoo and mix thoroughly. This can be applied to the faded ends with a sponge. Check colour after 15 minutes - this should be enough time, add water and work up to a lather. Rinse off then condition using Tints of Nature conditioner.
What is double processed hair?
Hair that has two or three chemical processes on it, like bleach and Hilift colours that use high volumes of peroxide.
Can Tints of Nature be used for lightening hair?
Yes. Tints of Nature will lighten hair by approximately one shade. So, if you’re a natural base 5, then it will lift your hair to around a base 6. To lighten your hair more significantly use our lightening kit (suitable for medium brown to blonde hair)
How often should I colour my hair?
If you’re covering regrowth, we recommend you colour your hair when there’s 1 - 1½ inches (3 to 4cm) of regrowth. That’s usually about every four to six weeks, but it depends on how quickly your hair grows.
Can I go back to ammonia-based hair colours after using Tints of Nature?
Tints of Nature won’t damage your hair, so you should be able to apply another brand of colour over the top. But it’s worth checking with the manufacturers of the brand you want to use, to make sure it’s compatible with Tints of Nature.
