You don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand the laws of hair color, but you do need to have the basic knowledge. Hair color, as opposed to a bleach lightener, is limited in its capabilities. Most store bought, box color includes 20 volume developer which means it is only capable of 2 shades of lift or getting 2 shades lighter. Think of the shades of hair color like a totem pole. Black at the bottom or level 1, very light blonde at the top or level 10. If your natural color is a level 5, which is considered light brown and you want to be a level 9, light blonde, a store bought, box color will not give you the results you desire. The biggest misconception is thinking you will get what you see in the picture on the box. Not true! If you're looking for a shade that is more than two shades lighter than your natural color, you will NOT achieve that result with 20 volume developer. If a person with that level 5 natural color used a level 9 hair color, they would get an undesirable brassy result. It just wasn't capable of such a feat. Naturtint is a great product when used with realistic expectations. My advice to anyone that may find any of this information confusing would be to find a professional colorist for the best results. If Naturtint is the product you would like used on your hair, find a colorist that will choose and formulate a color for you. I do for all of my clients. Have a great HAIR day!!

I'm sitting here with wet hair dripping down my back, completely unable to bring myself to even look in the mirror.
I bought Naturatint 10A 'Light Ash Blonde' to try and correct some horrible brassy tones that had appeared in my hair. I wanted to go back to my natural colour and the box matched what my roots are, so I thought it'd be a good way to grow my hair out. I read good review after good review about how wonderful it was - no scent, no irritation and a wonderful result. I was hugely excited!
I followed the instructions and left it on my roots for 20 minutes and then applied it through the rest of my hair for 10 minutes. I washed it out and nearly screamed when I saw my reflection. My hair is BRIGHT YELLOW. There is no other word for it. Imagine the Mr Men characters and picture Mr Happy - that is what my hair is the colour of. And I am NOT happy. I honestly have no idea what to do apart from now wear hats and try and tone it.
I'm sure other colours are lovely, but the 10A has left me £10 poorer with brightly patchy hair to show for it. I would NOT recommend to anyone looking at that shade. :'(

I have used this in 5M for the past four months. I have otherwise unprocessed shoulder length afro hair, which by definition is beyond dry. Esp having to use harsh London water to wash it with.
I have had random grey hairs since I was a teenager, but over the last 4 years they have been multiplying like crazy. I have gone to various professional hair dressers to have my hair coloured, and to be honest I have always preferred doing my own. Maybe I don't explain myself that well. Anyhoo, I have found many box dyes give a flat tone over the head, that if your just trying to restore your colour then ends up looking like it comes out of a box......
This brand is great for me. 5 Mahogany comes out really like a black with deep red tones on my hair. I took note with reviews on here and UTube suggested the colour comes out darker. I wash my hair one every 7 days, and my colour doesn't fade in 6 wks, when I touch up the roots. I can squeeze 2 touch ups out of one box, if I rope someone to help me.
My bug bears: that shampoo will destroy my hair, it is way to harsh. I throw that out each time.
The smell is like plasticine, modelling clay for kids.
The gloves are redundant, I use dish washing gloves as they cover my wrists, the thin one time use ones.
And I do think its chemical process that is as natural as drugstore ones. But has worked very hard on the tones and shades to keep people going back for more.
Oh and how much time this needs to rinse!
What I like is, how much product you get.
Clear instructions on mixing tones if you wanted. The gel texture which makes for less mess.
The conditioner is actually quite good and a fair size, I use the lot in one go. But like I said I have beyond dry hair and it soaks it up.
Best of all is the colour, love it.
The price is ok, but I get coupons off the net and purchase that way.
I really like this stuff. Would recommend. X

I tried this because L'Oreal and Clairol damaged my hair and made my scalp burn. Naturtint did not burn my scalp and there was no odor. I used 5N, Light Chestnut Brown and the color is more like a medium to dark chestnut color. The color is even and it covered all the gray! I love the color! My hair is silky soft after using the conditioner. I followed another review and did not use the shampoo until the next day. I bought this at Whole Foods and paid full price, but will now buy it online to save a few $!

I would totally buy Naturtint again, used light chestnut and it completely covered my grey roots; willing to wait the full 40 minutes because the results are amazing ;-). Paraben free is my #1 reason and no chemically embalming odor at all is another plus.

I really love this hair color. All Natural products are important to me, as well as vegetarian/vegan and non- cruelty products. I've been dyeing my naturally very dark brown hair jet black for the past 5 years with various drugstore brands. After years of the dark look ( which went well with my blue-green eyes, and fair skin ) I decided to professional double process and bleach my waist long hair to try to achieve a Angelina Jolie soft brown. After being very disappointed with blotchy orange tone hair, I tired Naturtint and have not used anything else since. I have never had a bad experience with this brand, and usually buy it from my health food store. My hair is very long so I use 2 boxes, but the best part is that you get to mix colors. Ive tried most of the brunette shades. Currently I am mixing 4N Natural Chestnut Brown and 4G Golden Chestnut Brown. My hair comes out a great dark but rich chocolate brown which is amazing considering my hair is nearly black and never lifts. This best part is that it looks so natural and seamless, and covers great. I use it with a application brush and bowl since its a little messy and thin but totally worth it. Ive even used the blackest shade when in need more drama in the winter and its the best black Ive ever used. I would recommend it because its non damaging and your hair looks healthy and so shinny. Its expensive for a college student but I will never use any other hair color again. It comes with a great deep conditioner, but I hate the gloves so buy some better ones if you get a chance.

I switched to Naturtint because I started getting burning and itching from using regular hair color, even the ones they use at my hair salon. I have been buying this and my hairdresser puts it on for me. He is actually amazed at how good the color is and the great condition my hair is in after he uses it on me. My color is a very rich dark brown - I use the Natural Chestnut - and it lasts through a lot of shampooing. I'm not crazy about the shampoo they include with it, but that's not a big deal...just use it with any sulfate-free shampoo (my hairdresser uses Rusk) and it works great. I highly recommend this hair color!

i prefer using hair dyes without ammonia because of my sensitive scalp. i have been using loreal casting then decided to try out naturtint after having read the reviews here. i love it ! it covers the white hair, does not dye the scalp, its not runny (somewhat sticky), no nasty chemical smell after washing it off (but it takes time to rinse), doesnt give any itchy feeling. my color is 3N.

So after many years of spending hundreds of dollars in salon and hair color at Sally's, I decided to use a natural hair color. Over all my experience wasn't bad but the color wasn't quite what I wanted. Most people seemed to have had the opposite experience that I had. I read many reviews where people said their color turned out redder than expected so I got Copper Blonde (8C) and was hoping for a little extra gingery color.It wasn't darker than before or anything just kind of a light brownish color, which is pretty, just not exactly what I wanted. My critique of the product is that it did slightly dry my hair out but otherwise I would probably buy this product again, just maybe a more vibrant red.

After 20years (and 8 million dollars) of salon color, i finally took the leap and i am thrilled. Used a 3:1 ratio of mahogony blond and mahogany chestnut for my red hair. Color is rich, complex and frankly more beautiful than salon color. Will see how it holds up but right now it is a winner.

I just bought some Naturtint and used it on my long hair. I have a lot of trouble with hair dye since most of the time my grey comes back out within a couple months. Also, usually right after I dye my hair, I still have some grey strands here and there. I was surprised that Naturtint covered all my grey and it seems to be lasting. The only complaint I have is that the color on the box seems to be one shade darker then they claim it is. Thus, my hair is a darker shade then I wanted. Next time I will pick a shade lighter.

I switched to this after being a very loyal L'Oreal user for many years. I really wanted to find a color that was less harsh and much more natural. I tried this on a recommendation and really liked it. I use Honey Blonde #9. No scalp irriation, and my color is done in 30 minutes flat!. It is a little expensive for box color ($14) but worth it!

I used the Naturtint in colour 6G, golden dark blond.
Till now Casting Creme Gloss is the best amonium free hair colour I have used, so I compare this Naturtint to the Casting.
I am surprised about the results of this product, because amonium free colour is mostly not strong enough to cover grey hairs completely, but this does a very good job. Actually it performs as a normal hair colour (with amonium). After a few weeks the colour hasn't fade yet.
Now a month later I repurchased to dye my grey roots, and again the results are perfect.
I don't know if I will buy the 6G again the next time, because it is a little bit too gold (caramel) for my liking. I think I will try the 6N or 5N the next time.
Compared to the Casting:
-Colours of the Casting are always darker than on the package, not with the Naturtint
-Casting is 'bleeding' with the first washes, the Naturtint isn't
-The Casting is a bit milder
-The Naturtint covers grey hairs better
The Casting is more expensive
-Both easy to use
-The Casting makes my hair always very static after dying for the first weeks, the Naturtint doesn't
-Both have very chemical (dangerous?) ingredients (PPD)

Best. Natural. Neutral. Black. Hair. Dye. Ever. I ought to know, I've been dying my hair black for 23 years. It's my "natural" color. Yes, it is a pain to rinse out. You will rinse and rinse and then you will rinse some more. But the result is shiny, Scheherazade worthy, molten darkness. Tints of Nature may smell like blueberry croissants when you are putting it in your hair, and in my humble opinion the color is prettier - at first, but the black that Naturtint "settles" into is far more rewarding. Plus, Tints of Nature seems like it fades and fades and fades some more, every time you shower. Fade factor for Naturtint is comparable to standard drug store packaged permanent hair dyes, which in other words, is better than natural permanent dyes tend to be. Technically I haven't tried Organic Color Systems so I can't speak to that. Make sure you USE the shampoo and conditioner that comes in the package. This is an important step in the process since this dye does not have ammonia. The conditioner takes my hair from snarled straw to slinky silk too. Always remember that no hair dye is truly "natural" or truly "safe", and follow the directions! Dear, but you get what you pay for. I think when Peter Steele sang about "Black No. 1" he was referring to this dye.

Excellent product. I am a 51 y.o. active built business woman. I stopped taking birth control pills and my hair thinned out sadly. It is more frail and the drugstore color ate my hair and scalp up. This product worked well and long lasting.
FYI-- do not use shampoo after coloring as this tends to remove color and causes fading very quickly. New one comes with a shampoo in box but save it for later. Do not shampoo for 24 hours. Then I use color safe shampoo.

I bought this in 1N Black Ebony. I paid $17.99 for it at the health food store. I usually use Clairol Natural Instincts dye in #37 (black), but I liked the idea of a permanent yet natural dye that had no ammonia or harsh chemicals. I refuse to use dyes with ammonia because not only do they STINK but the ammonia damages my naturally curly hair, hence why I use the semi-permanent dye. I'm happy with my Clairol dye (which is way cheaper...I get it for about $6 usually), but I decided to give Naturtint a try!
First I would like to address some of the things other reviewers have said. The common complaint for this hair dye is that the shade did not come out as desired. I cannot stress enough the importance of READING THE BOX in its entirety. It states that because this contains no ammonia, you should only go up 2 shades at a time. So, don't expect a box of blonde dye to come out as expected if you have dark brown hair.
Someone also said that this dye is runny. Hardly. If you shake the dye for two minutes in the bottle (per the instructions) it becomes a very thick, gelatinous substance. This was great for me because I like to apply dyes with a cup and brush instead of the cumbersome bottle.
If you use this, you really need to read the instructions. I think people don't take the time to read the literature that comes with products and that's why they don't have success.
So anyway, I am very pleased with this dye. The color came out a rich blue black and my hair was very soft afterward. My only complaint is that the dye smelled like plastic (the kind of plastic-y smell that you get from a newly opened foam mattress pad, for example). This is not a big deal because you can't expect a total chemical-free dye. And that plastic-like odor is a better smell than lung-burning ammonia.
I think I will be rebuying this stuff. I am going to have to order it online and get it cheaper because $20 every 4 or 5 weeks adds up. The reason I do my hair at home is to save money! I understand why this is more expensive, though, and I appreciate the research and development that has gone into this to make a natural dye that delivers the same if not better results as mass-market dyes.
I think you should try this if you are curious. Just remember to read all the instructions. Naturtint also makes a pamphlet which discusses how their dyes work and how to select a shade. It is worth reading if you are new to the brand.
When used properly, this is an amazing product!

Love this dye. I used 4I (deep mahogany?). There was barely any smell - maybe a faint medicinal one, almost like TCP! Once you mix the two bottles, you get a FULL bottle of dye (something others could take note of. I'm looking at you, Schwarzkoff Live...). It had a thick gel-like consistency making it very non-drippy - I think this is about the least mess I've found a dye to make. The bit that did get on my skin wiped off easily with wet cotton wool.
Finally I love the colour - a dark, plummy brown. And very shiny!
One downside - the gloves! Haven't we moved past the cheap petrol station ones?!

I tried many hair dyes, but this was the worst. I used 7N, Hazelnut Blond which turned my light brown hair to a bright orange and the end, who were dry and damaged, turned green. And the greys are still there.
I was hoping for a mild hair color because of the damaged ends and now all my hair is damaged. They feel and look like straw. I tried deep conditioning, everything. The conditioner in the package didn't helped. I have to go to the hair salon and see what they can do about the color without doing more damage.

This is a review for naturtint in EBONY BLACK. This is the BEST HAIR DYE IN THE WORLD!!!! I've been dyeing my hair for around 20 years- its been purple, blue, red, blonde, chestnut, auburn, and my natural light brown shade. I've also got quite a few greys coming through despite the fact that I am only in my thirties :( Anyway, I've tried all the packet colours, salon colours and JF lazartigue which contains no ammonia or peroxide. So far, this is the best colour I have tried. I use the ebony black shade as after all my experimentation black is the colour that suits my skin tone and elicits the most compliments! I also like the fact that this dye is alot more natural than the others and they have cut out ammonia and all the nasty resourscinol that can be so bad for you. It does contain a small amount of peroxide but lets get real here- you cant expect a miraculous colour from a few bits of crushed herbs can you? Anyway, its fairly straightforward to apply- mix two solutions together, shake and then apply. The liquid is slightly runny but not too bad. I am a bit of a pro at colouring now but obviously it can be a bit messy sometimes and this colour is no exception. You also get a nice conditioner/colour fixer with it which is recommended to "fix" the colour in. After rinsing, my hair is glossy, wonderfully conditioned, volumous and an amazing blue-black shade which literally shimmers in the sun- it is a very beautiful colour and most importantly, no damage to my hair at all. The only slight criticism I have of this colour is that it does tend to stain the scalp and tends to bleed colour when you next shampoo. However, this has never affected the end colour so its not really a big deal, just something I've noticed. So far, I have not found a colour superior to this brand- the shade of the colour and my hair condition afterwards keeps me coming back every single time- it really is a gorgeous colour and I love the fact that it is alot healthier than the other boxed dyes. Even in the salon, i have not had a better colour experience than this :)

It did leave my hair soft and shiny, but the color I used (Golden Chestnut) barely lightened my black roots even though the color chart predicted a medium brown. Unfortunately it would seem that it's the nasty, toxic chemicals that will lift black hair to brown. I'll take my chances with a high-lift product...
