How to select your perfect Tints of Nature permanent hair dye...

Tints of Nature permanent shades will take your hair any shade darker and will lift your hair by one shade. To find your perfect Tints of Nature colour follow our step by steps…

1. Using our shade range, select a colour that represents your natural hair colour.

2. Choose any colour within that shade level, any shade darker, or up to one shade lighter.

For example: If 5N is your natural shade or close to, you can use any colour within the 5 range or darker. If you want to lift your hair by one shade you can use 6N. Due to the gentle nature of our colour formulations, hair can only be lifted by one shade.To achieve a higher lift you will need Tints of Nature Highlight or Lightener Kit, suitable for medium brown to blonde hair.

How to colour your hair at home with Tints of Nature
mix your own bespoke Tints of Nature shade

Mix your own bespoke shade...

All of our home hair colours are intermixable, so you can discover a bespoke shade that works just for you. See below for some popular examples of great intermixable colour creations.

10N + 8C = Light Ash Blonde

7R + 5FR = Medium Red Copper

8N + 4M = Mahogany Blonde

We would always advise to mix the Colour Gel's in equal quantities to begin with. For example... Mix 25ml of 4N Colour Gel and 25ml of 4C Colour Gel with 50ml Colourfix... Quantities can then be adjusted best to suit your desired shade result. Always remember the Colour Gel to Colourfix ratio should always be the same and must remain as 50ml of Colour Gel & 50ml Colourfix. - This rule will always apply to intermixing permanent shades. Any combination can be used as long as the ratio remains the same.

Grey hair coverage...

Will Tints Of Nature cover those grey hairs? Yes! Tints of Nature permanent home hair colours will cover up to 100% of grey/white hairs. Grey and white hairs can be very resistant to colouring, this is usually because the hairs are lacking in essential moisture. Although our colours are designed to cover those pesky greys, we have some top tips for those very stubborn hairs.

Top Tip 1

1. Wash your hair with Tints of Nature Clarify shampoo found in your box of colour. Work into a lather, rinse and towel dry.

2. Using our moisture rich Tints of Nature Hydrate Treatment, massage 4-8 pumps into your hair thoroughly and leave for 15 minutes. - Let the magic begin...

3. Rinse the treatment off and towel dry.

4. Mix your chosen colour together and follow pack instructions.

Top Tip 2

If your desired colour is a fashion shade (i.e. any colour apart from the N shades) mix with a natural shade from the same shade range to ensure maximum coverage of grey and white hairs.

For example mix 25ml 7D (Fashion shade) + 25ml 7N (Natural shade) + 50ml Colourfix.

All of our natural shades contain a larger conditioning base which will therefore provide maximum grey coverage. Alternatively you may choose any natural shade and apply as directed or mix two natural shades to achieve a bespoke colour and optimum grey coverage.
