I tried tints of nature permanent hair dye for the first time last night and I love it! My natural hair color is medium-dark brown, but right now I have ombre goin on, so only a few inches of my roots are dark brown, gradually blending in to lighter brown and then blonde. I have maybe just 5% grays, but since my roots are dark they are totally noticable. I hate them. So I dye my roots maybe once a month or every 6 weeks to cover the grays. I had been using the regular box dye from the grocery store but now want to switch to a more natural hair dye, without going all the way to the henna side. Tints of nature is just as simple to use as the regular box dye. But the big difference is no horrible chemical smell or itching!! The smell is actually kind of minty/herby.
I should say that my grays are super resistant! Even the regular box dye wouldnt cover them 100%. So I was kind of expecting tints of nature not to work, but it did! It actually covered my grays BETTER than the regular box dye! There is just a few that didn't totally get covered, but they just look kind of blonde and not gray or white! I mixed 2 different colors btw, Natural Dark Blonde 6N and Natural Light Brown 5N. I read that these dyes can end up darker than expected so I went for lighter colors. Did a strand tests and the 5N came out super dark, almost black!!! The 6N came out exactly as my natural brown color and covered grays nicely too. When mixed, the colors came out a bit darker than my natural color but not super dark like 5N by itself. I don't mind it being darker cause I am sure it will fade, but in the future I may just use the 6N. I also didn't want to waste the 5N so mixing it was a good way to use it up. I only used half of each, so I have enough to dye my roots one more time. If you are trying to cover grays I read that the N line of the colors is the best. But if you like some other color from tins of nature you should use one of the N's to mix it with (I read that 6N is the best).
The box provides a clarifying shampoo that you are suppose to use before dying your hair. The shampoo is actually the weirdest smelling thing. It kind of smells like rubber gloves! lol. So weird. But whatever. And then after you wash your hair you just need to towel dry and apply the dye to damn hair. I thought that would be kind of weird, but it was fine. I left mine on for 40 minutes, then washed and conditioned using the provided shampoo and conditioner. Those smell kind of fruity, almost like gum or candy. Not too fond of the smell but its fine. The shampoo got pretty foamy so the little package was totally enough to wash my hair (which is few inches bellow my shoulders). But the conditioner was totally not enough. My hair is dry especially on the ends, so I need a lot of good conditioner. I used what they provided and then added a bunch of my Sukin moisturing conditioner and it worked great. Easy to brush after and the color, although a tad darker than my natural color, came out good and covered my grays well. Overall I would recommend this hair dye. I know it's not 100% natural, but its WAY better than those usual dyes full of harmful chemicals. The price is a bit steep, but totally worth it in my opinion. Hope this helps someone who is considering trying Tints of Nature hair dye. If it didn't cover your grays, you should experiment with the N line colors! xoxo

I bought Tints of Nature hair dye around a month ago since I wanted a natural hair dye that would cause zero to very minimal damage. I had heard of Tints of Nature a few years ago but there were no reviews on it and I was very hesitant to buy is since hair colour is not something that can be easily corrected necessarily but after seeing all the review on MUA I decided to try it. I had been previously dyeing my hair with Nice N Easy hair colour in the shade 119B Medium Spice and was looking for a very similar colour in this line. I went to Whole Foods where they sell this line and looked at all the colours ad decided that the closest shade according the the swatches would be shade '5R Rich Copper Brown'. Two things that I noticed: The colour was outrageously expensive ($19 a box and I need 2 for my whole head!) and the swatches on the back of the box are absolutely horrible. They give you next to no indication of what the colour is going to look like. Anyways, I brought the colour home and went on the Tints of Nature website to see read any kind of warnings or anything like that and it said that you had to wait at least a month to dye your hair with Tints of Nature if your previous colour had been metallic- Nice N Easy is a metallic colour so make sure that if you're usually a colour like that you wait the full month.
The day that I coloured my hair, it was definitely a very different experience. I opened the little box and in it was a sachet of clarifying shampoo, sachets of regular shampoo and conditioner, gloves, a plastic cap and of course the colour and the developer. I was surprised at how small the bottles of each were but I will reflect on that later. I In the instructions is said to wash your hair first with the clarifying shampoo and then to dye your hair while it was still damp so I followed those directions. The shampoo smelled absolutely horrible- like a really strong mix of garlic, ginger and lemon, just super unpleasant and left my hair feeling really straw-like so I had to condition it even though it never said to. I usually dye my hair by sectioning it off and applying it using the brush and bowl method and with damp hair this was impossible with I did not like. I mixed up the colour in the bowl, put on the gloves and just took some on my hands and massaged it into my scalp and rubbed it in my hair. I really did not like applying this to wet hair- it was incredibly hard to work with. The plus side about it was that because your hair is wet and the dye can travel through it better, I used about half the dye I use with a regular colour so I think next time I will just pick up one box and keep in mind, I have long hair to the middle of my back that is incredibly thick so I was really happy about that. I forget how long it said to keep the dye in for but I made a little bun on my head and wrapped the cap around it and set my timer for 40 minutes. I then rinsed out my hair and man oh man did that take a long time. I found the amount of shampoo they provided was fine but there was hardly any conditioner so I had to use some of my own (Dove Colour Care). My hair was feeling really dodgy after the shampoo but after conditioning it felt really silky. I was really pleased after rinsing it out to see how similar it looked to the Nice N Easy colour I was using. I was also really surprised at how silky and healthy my hair ended up feeling in the end since during the process it most certainly did not feel nice. I will update in another month or so as to how well this lasted but as of right now, I definitely recommend it.

I used the 4N dye in a reverse ombre fashion to get rid of my orange tinted - sun bleached - old dye while not dying my regrowth. It completely matches my natural hair, while covering most of the orange tints. The tips are slightly darker (because I used the ombre method) which is good because they were the reddest.
The box said to dye wet, after using the supplied cleansing shampoo, which I did. This made it harder for me to see where I had applied the dye, but I managed. I believe this is to raise the pH to 7 so its faster for the dye to reach pH 9?
The dye is the least offensive smelling dye i have used, it did smell chemically, but I didn't get a headache or feel I needed to leave the room. After washing it out it smelt slightly of dye still, but that went away by the time it dried.
I felt there was plenty of product supplied, I didn't cover my whole head, but I have thick bottom of ribs length hair and there was a reasonable amount left over. There was also more than enough shampoo supplied to wash it 2-3 times.
Overall I am very happy with the dye, I will wait and see if it fades quickly or not. At $29NZD a bottle I wont be buying one again too soon, so I hope it lasts and doesn't orange up again.

I prefer to buy organic skincare and make up, given that the product is as user-friendly and performs as well as the other ones. So after switching from a frustrating, long and expesive hairdresser dying experience for my graying roots to at home dye kits (Schwarzkopf Ammonium-free mousse) and being pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and results I tried the kit from Tints of Nature.
When I opened the instructions I was quite shocked to find out that the manual asked me to use a brush -for mixing and application- and a cup for mixing, though none of them were provided in the kit. All the other at home dyes I have used provide everything you need in the kit. And since I didn't have an applicator brush I had to use my gloved fingers to apply the dye.
And the dye provided was not even enough to cover my roots. The amount was less than half of the amount provided with mainstream at-home dyes.
Moreover I needed to blow dry my hair for 30 minutes, which I find to be quiet a hassle when with other dyes you can spend the half hour on the computer or doing other chores.
As for the shampoo when none came out after squeezing the packet I thought I hadn't managed to tear it well when actually there was so little shampoo in the packet that I had to scoop it out with my finger, again only to cover my roots.
In the end my roots are somewhat covered, but not worth the hassle at all for me and I will definitely not purchase it again.

Wanted to start by thanking silverlilly for her review. It pretty much was the reason I decided to try Tints of Nature and also gave useful tips.
I put natural dark blonde over a few streaks of bleached hair (Manic Panic Flash Lightning and Virgin Snow) as the colour was just too bright and I have naturally light brown hair. I only left on for roughly 20 minutes to avoid damage since I had bleached it a week before.
I was very nervous about it turning green or purple as I had read I would need a filler. I threw caution to the wind and did it without one. I am only one day after so I can't talk about fading but it definitely toned done the streaks to more of a golden dark blonde - much better! I also have enough left over unmixed to use again for touch ups. The 1:1 ratio makes it really easy to mix. At first I thought it would be super runny but it mixes into more of a gel.
I really wanted a vegan product that didn't test on animals. So glad this exists.

This is a review on the lightener kit.
Ok..where do I start..my natural hair color is about a lvl 5.
As I was mixing the color it was a very buttery yellow as well as a buttery texture. As I was applying it, even before I was finished the mixture seemed to go bad already..from a buttery yellow it went to a white color and it was very foamy..and slightly bubbly..you know when you take a bath ..it was like that exactly color and texture wise.
But I went ahead and finished anyway, when I did, after I washed and dried my hair the color was nice I'll give it that, it was very nice! a level 10 blonde(naturally I'm about a level 6).
However, I had dark patches all over my head...and YES I did apply it evenly, I never have problems with unevenness..until I tried this hair dye.
So..I decided to purchase another box to cover the dark patches..
Only it didn't cover so well..I was STILL left with unevenness..it covered the back patches but I still had a few in the front..so I didn't buy a third box because not only was it crazy expensive ($20 a box) but I didn't think it would cover my spots since it didn't the first 2 times, so I just bleached the remaining few spots I had..because I had nothing else to use.
Overall, I am very disappointed in this hair dye..the color was beautiful, the mixture was horrible..it's not that it went bad that I had uneven spots, because even before it went bad I had already applied it to my hair, and was still left with dark patches..so..it's too bad it didn't work for me.
I will not purchase this again, it's very pricey..I wasted $40 on 2 boxes and it still did not cover everything.

My hair was completely dye free with about 50 percent grey. I used tints of nature brown hair color and left it on for the additional 10 minutes to cover grey. Some of my grey was not covered and most of it turned PURPLE. I have no idea how to correct this. If you have grey hair beware.

I just want to say, for boxed haircolor, this stuff is expensive, but it freakin lasts :) I colored my hair 1 1/2 months ago with 4C Medium Ash Brown & the color is still holding strong, whereas before, with both natural & regular haircolor, it would shampoo out and I would need to recolor after 3 weeks, because my hair was damaged & porous & not holding color. Ok yes, it was a bit dark, & I will probably go a shade lighter next time. As other reviewers mentioned it is also not damaging to hair. But the big thing for me is, it LASTS-- HOORAY!!

i love using this as it does not damage the hair, it leaves the hair smooth and shiny and without damage, i would prefer to use this over a boxed bleach any day as box bleaches seriously damage your hair and leave it feeling very dry and damaged but this will give your hair a silky finish afterwards and wont damage it as bad as a normal bleach would, thankyou tints of nature. :)

Tints of Nature Hair Color
I am tired of the "Lorel" brands. My head would get hot while the chemicals were on and I would feel very tired after the process was done. I knew what I was doing was unhealthy! So I went to my local health food store and bought "Chocolate Brown". I love the smell of the conditioner :)
My color came out nice but it is a little darker than I wanted. I will see if there is a color lighter. My head did not get hot and I feel fine.

I have used Tints of Nature off and on for a few years. The chemicals in regular hair dye make me a bit nervous...too many horror stories about reactions and carcinogens (tied to hair dyes) in the media for my liking so I've started using ToN again.
I just coloured my hair with 7RL Medium Bright Copper. I had coloured my hair with L'oreal Preference Medium Copper Brown prior to this and my natural colour is dark blond/light brown. I have a sprinkling of grey, but its minimal. What I wanted was an intense copper colour without the fear of over dark roots (that you get using a brown base). My daughter who is a hairdresser in Toronto was all " it won't work, it won't lift your hair blah blah" but I wasn't looking for lift. What I wanted was to ''lay'' a rich layer of copper red on my hair and you know what? That is exactly what it did. My hair looks fantastic. Its a very rich dark copper, the colour is completely even and there was no horrible ammonia smell, and any colour you get on anything other than your hair (towels ect) comes out much eaiser (I know this from past experience LOL). I intend to keep using ToN and I may try some of the lightening kits to do streaks with as well...

I used this a bit unconventionally. I just highlighted my dark brown hair using frost and glow for a second time, and it lifted a little too much this time, washing me out. But I liked the highlights - they were just too "blonde". Wanting to go golden brown without reddish tones, I debated what to lowlight with since *everything* pulls red or orange it seems. I decided on Tints of Nature in "natural dark blonde" to attempt a nice caramel/honey lowlight, because all the reviews said this stuff goes darker than expected or desired. I basically foiled my hair with this - weaving in and out of sections with a pin, applying the Tints of Nature to the lowlight sections, and wrapping each section in regular kitchen tinfoil. Just did the crown - about 7 sections. Pulled the foils after 30 min, rinsed, washed with included shampoo (yummy scent) and... it looks amazing! I now have gorgeous golden brown multi-tonal highlights (not brassy, reddish or yellow) in my bra-strap length hair, and no damage...Even got a wolf whistle today! lol And I only used about 1/4 of the solution so if this fades, I can do it again on the same tab.

I get loads of compliments for the colour (light brown 5N) when I initially apply it. On my hair which is naturally dark blonde with lots of white hair (temples and across the front etc) it comes out brown with a hint of chestnut.
I like the ease of application, the smell is less offensive than more traditional home hair colourants.
I have re-bought but will only use on an alternate basis or for every 3 colours. I may revert to Daniel Field water colours. The reasons are below.
I have noticed that it doesn't grab my grey roots really well. After one wash it looks like the roots need re-doing. I do have resistant grey hair! It also fades quite quickly. I am on day 15 of a recent colour and the fact that the roots look prematurely white/faded makes the whole effect weaker than it should be after 2 weeks.
Up until recently that was all I would have said but I did have to re-apply some TON colour after a bad colour choice and decided to take the colour through to the ends for the last 2 minutes. My ends are really frazzled now and I regret that. I would advise root colouring as far as possible and using other things for the ends.

I used the Platinum Blonde Lightening Kit for several years now.
It doesn't have the acrid smell of supermarket hair dyes and bleaching kits. It smells a bit like roses.
Quite drying though, you need to intensely condition hair after, it DOES come with a lovely color conditioner/shampoo sample packet.
It's more intense light blonde than Herbavita's platinum blonde. (And Herbavita is another non-ammonia dye, that doesnt smell)
It has a rickety mixing box, and 2 opaque containers with the liquid to mix into the dye, and an envelope of white lightening powder. It doesnt come with any measurement or application utensils.
The biggest thing is the absence of ammonia choking the air.
The price is a bit steeper than usual at around $30 a box in Canada.
Sometimes you can find it for $21 a box if on sale.

I used natural light blonde, 8N. The color came out well, but the product smells awful, and left my hair tangled even after shampooing and conditioning as instructed.

I have ditched my $150 bills for coloring at the salon - this is a far better deal! $20 to do my hair when I want - no waiting to justify the cost, and I can do it at my leisure! My hairdresser said because it has not metals in it, that you can do it over the hair it did the month before, at no risk! I am thrilled!

I used the highlighting kit of this brand and the hair color. The colors run very true - maybe a little dark? The highlighting kit is better than anything else at any store - promise. I have used so many, including l'oreal cremelights, which did not lift my previously colored hair enough. This tints of nature really did the trick and kept my hair as healthy as it could be (it is not very healthy right now, but it definitely did not make it worse). I only put in about 10 highlights using a cap and kept it off of my fried ends for most of the time. I mixed a little oil with it for the ends b/c I was afraid that they would snap off. No problems at all. I always pull red in my hair and have to leave the bleach on a really long time - not with this stuff! 30 mins. later it lifted the reddish blondish hair dye (mistake of mine) off of the highlighted pieces and just breaks up the bassy color enough that it looks normal. Can someone please remind me to only use this product from now on?!
EDIT: Still like this, but I am not using the permanent anymore. I have decided to use the semi-perm line of Tints of Nature called "Changes". No recorcinol, parabens, ppd , etc. Easy to use, no mixing required, but a little expensive. Found it at Mrs. Greens Natural Market. They have limited color selection in the semi-perm and even though I hate golden tones usually, I used the golden blonde and everyone keeps telling me how nicely highlighted my hair looks! It stained the grays really well. No smell, no damage, no appointment necessary. So easy. I hope they come out with some more neutral blonde colors soon.

I used 7N natural medium blonde on level 4-5 mousy brown roots with some gray and level 8-9 brassy yellowish red outgrowth. My goal was to darken and tone the outgrowth. I am really pleased with the result! My hair is a beautiful honey color--level 7. The product covered my previous hair color mistake very evenly--even the roots lifted! My hair looks very healthy. The shampoo that was included in the kit was great: smelled good and worked up a fine lather. It was almost too much in the packet (only use 1/2 of the packet, if you choose to use it). I wouldn't have used it at all except it was my first time using Tints of Nature and I wanted to go exactly as the instructions directed. From here on out, I won't bother. However, the shampoo ~did~ make my hair feel nice and soft--something the conditioner ~didn't~ do! Plus, there wasn't enough conditioner in the packet. Don't bother with it and just use your own conditioner. The smell of the actual hair color was wonderful; nothing offensive here! It smelled faintly of peppermint. I let my cat sniff the just developed bottle as a test and he didn't bat a pretty kitty cat eye. The stuff went on easily because it was like a gel. I used it out of the bottle but next time I'll do the bowl and brush method to see which one is better. No stinging on the scalp. It even covered my gray, and I can tell you that the name brand colors weren't even doing that for me. Actually, the name brand colors kept leaving me looking orange! Fellow colorists, you must try this one! Just a nice, natural color is the result I think you'll see. I think it's worth the price!

I have been using a 40 vol. high lift tint for touch ups but my hair still is breaking off at the ends because no matter how careful you are it still gets on the lightened hair while rinsing off. So in order to still be blonde and try and preserve the integrity of my hair whats left of it I tried the Blonde shade Extra Light Blonde in the Tints of Nature. I left it on for 40 minutes with a cap. My natural hair is a light brown color and it lightened it fine not much difference from me using the 40 vol peroxide. I didn't think it was going to work since it only has about 3% vol perioxide. The downside is its expensive for 4 oz mixed runs around 16.00 since I need two bottles its going to get expensive. I usually touch my roots up every 6 weeks. The only other downside is my hair texture did feel a little off when wet but when I used a conditioner it took care of the texture. I found no breakage just a little shedding the 2nd time I washed.

I was a little bit disappointed with the product because the coloring did not really turn out the way I expected. I bought the natural medium brown one and somehow it turned out darker than the image shown on the box.
What I like about it though is that it's organic (love love organic products), the smell is also not so offensive as other dyes I've tried. I liked the packaging and I believe the price is reasonable.
I would probably buy it again but will get a lighter color the next time. I surely would give it another shot and hopefully the next does not disappoint. :)
