Frequently Asked Questions
Can Tints of Nature be used over another hair color product?
Yes you can, unless your current hair color product contains metals or henna. If your current hair color 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 color properly. Leave it a month, shampoo regularly and then go for a lovely Tints of Nature shade.
If someone has used hair color for years without any problems, why do they need to carry out a sensitivity test before using Tints of Nature?
Good question. The thing is you might become sensitive over time to ingredients used in hair color. So even if you were fine before, you might have become sensitive since then. It’s always worth testing your sensitivity because other factors can affect the results; medication might affect how your body reacts, or if you’ve had permanent make-up or tattoos. If your scalp is irritated or damaged that might cause a reaction too.
That’s why Tints of Nature encourage you to always take a sensitivity test 48 hours before you use Tints of Nature, even though it’s formulated to be very gentle on hair and skin.
If someone is pregnant, can they color their hair?
Pregnancy: Most research, although limited, shows that it’s safe to color 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 coloring her hair is exposed to.
Tints of Nature recommend waiting to dye your hair until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the risk of chemical substances harming the baby is much lower. If you’re coloring your hair yourself, you can reduce the risk further by making sure that you:
- Wear gloves.
- Leave the color 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 colors 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 coloring 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.
Breast Feeding: It is very unlikely that a significant amount of the chemicals used in hair dyes will be passed on through your breast milk. This is because very little enters your bloodstream. In the past, many women have used hair treatments while breast feeding with no known negative results. Tints of Nature recommends following these steps:
- Wait for 4 weeks after giving birth.
- Start with a Semi-Permanent color or “off the scalp” method applications.
- Always do sensitivity and strand tests.
If you have any further medical concerns, please contact your doctor.
Can Tints of Nature be used by people undergoing chemotherapy?
Sadly, Tints of Nature don’t advise you use their products if you’re having chemotherapy, radiotherapy or other forms of treatment. If you do decide to color 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 color your hair once you’ve got an inch of growth. Use semi-permanent hair color for the first few months until your hair becomes stronger. Tints of Nature always recommend you take both a sensitivity and strand test first.
Having said that, if your scalp is damaged, very dry or irritated, or if your hair is brittle, you still shouldn’t color your hair.
What is double processed hair?
Hair that has two or three chemical processes on it, like bleach and Hilift colors that use high volumes of peroxide.
Do any colors contain henna?

Do Tints of Nature products contain peroxide?

- 10XL which uses a 9% (30V) Liquid Peroxide Activator
- Highlight Kit which uses a 9% (30V) Cream Peroxide Activator
- Lightener Kit which uses a 12% (40V) Cream Peroxide Activator (The Lightener Kit comes with a bottle of Naturlite Oil, this is used to protect the scalp during the lightening process and neutralizes the Peroxide to around 9%)

About Tints of Nature
Tints of Nature has developed an alternative, much gentler and more effective way to color hair. Tints of Nature uses an alkaline moisturizing substance to raise the pH of hair instead of harsh chemicals. Tints of Nature's moisturizer softens and lifts the cuticle slightly to allow the color to penetrate inside the hair, but maintain hair's essential protein and moisture.
Tints of Nature colors don't take hair as far from its natural point on the pH scale as chemical colors do. After coloring, their specially formulated shampoos and conditioners return hair to its natural pH level, fully closing the cuticle and leaving the hair undamaged by the coloring process. With a completely closed cuticle, color is securely sealed within the cortex of the hair and there's much less color fade than with the traditional method.
