Herbatint is the first organically based permanent hair colour gel with added benefit of having the capability of covering grey/white hair without the use of ammonia. With 30 shades in the range there are colours which are totally intermixable, allowing for the achievement of any colour result desired.
Colour out. Our product uses a natural herbal base with no ammonia. Utilising the many beneficial properties obtained from the berbal extracts and protiens, Herbatint gently colours and protects the sensitive structure of your hair giving a deep natural gloss and brilliance. You can also lighten your hair colour by approximately one shade using Herbatint.
Herbatint is able to cover white or grey hair gently and without causing damage to your hair, which enables the chosen colour to last much longer. The natural series colours from 1N to 8N give 100% coverage of grey hair. In order to achieve total grey hair coverage with the Ash, Golden, Copper and Mahogany series of colours, it is suggested you mix the chosen colour (40ml) with a natural (N) series of the same number (20ml). For example: Your hair is chestnut and your selected colour is Copper Chestnut. Mix 40ml of Herbatint 4R (Copper Chestnut) with 20ml of Herbatint 4N (Chestnut).
Herbatint can be used even if a chemical dye has been used to colour your hair. If your hair has been permed please bear in mind that your hair is more porous than usual, so select one shade lighter than usual for the best results. Herbatint cannot provide 100% colouring power for hennaed hair which still has henna present, as henna creates a coating around the hair.
The Herbatint pack contains enough for up to two applications, depending on your hair length.
It is the first most natural hair-colouring gel to be free of harsh chemicals and ammonia. It incorporates protiens, botanicals and natural vegetal extracts such as Cinchona, Rhubarb and Walnut, nutrients that give hair its deep, natural shine and vibrant, healthy colour.
It provides nourishment, protection and conditioning to both the hair and scalp. It offers a safe, gentle and effective way for covering normal grey hair with just 1 application. Fort long hair use complete contents of package. For medium to short hair contents should allow for two applications. It lightens by one or two tones without hurting the hair structure.
It is available in 30 rich shades and is easy to use. It is formulated by Herbavita, the leading European hair colour specialists (sold in 25 countries), with over 30 years of experience in developing natural hair care products for beautiful hair.
With Herbatint haircolour you can change the tone of your hair (for instance, from Gold to Ash), it can be used to lighten by up to 3 shades and will cover grey from the first application.
It is possible to lighten natural hair by one or two shades on brown or chestnut hair and two to three shades on light chestnut or blonde hair. Can lighten previously tinted hair by two tones.
Herbatint can return hair to its natural colour, but remember to mix a gold shade with a natural if your target shade is 6N or above. 5N and below are fine by themselves on bleached hair.
Do not colour your hair immediately after a perm. We recommend waiting two weeks and then shorten the processing time by 10 minutes and use a shade lighter than your target shade.
Hair That Has Been Treated With Henna
Henna creates a sheath around the hair making it very difficult for tint to penetrate on the first application. Subsequent applications should be more successful.
If you choose a colour, which is Ash, Golden, Copper, Mahogany, we advise you to mix it with a colour from the natural
range in equal parts. Do not mix together two shades of the golden range.

Instructions For Use
As with any hair colour system, the success of these products depends very much upon following the instructions given on the product packs, the condition of your hair and the colour you choose. Although Herbatint/Vegetal are gentle products, they may stain your fingernails so the use of gloves is advised. Dry, permed, treated and grey hair tends to be more porous than normal hair and will therefore take up colours more readily. The effect will be a more intense colour and this should be borne in mind when selecting which colour you require. Always test products on a small piece of your own hair, before undertaking the complete treatment. It is particularly important to leave the products on for the times given. Colours may appear much more intense or even totally different whilst processing takes place. They will not therefore correspond to the colours in the colour chart until the full processing time has elasped. We strongly recommend the use of the Herbavita Normalising Shampoo and the Royal Cream each time the hair is coloured, to prolong the life of the colour and ensure perfect condition every time. This is particularly important after using Herbatint.
1. Using a plastic or glass container mix equal and sufficient color and glcol developer in equal parts enough to suit the length and volume of your hair. Replace the caps on the bottles containing unused products, and retain for future use.
2. Using mixture apply on dry and unwashed hair.
