Helpful Hints On Applying Herbatint
When applying Herbatint for the first time, make sure to use the whole mixture and cover all the hair. This will ensure even coverage.
For applying Herbatint on previously tinted hair just apply to the re-growth at the roots but take through to the ends for the last 5- 10 minutes only if you feel hair colour has faded.
Avoid putting colour through to the ends every time you re-colour or you will get a build up of colour over time.
Refer to the full instructions in the box. Read fully before applying.
How to use Herbatint as a 'Quasi' or 'Demi' result which lasts 16 - 18 washes. Not recommended to cover grey but it is an ideal way for first time users to experiment without having long lasting results.
Mix: 30 mls Herbatint 15 mls Normalising Shampoo 15 mls Glycol Developer
Apply colour to hair that has been shampooed and towel dried. Leave to process for 20 -25 minutes before shampooing off.
Why it's important to use the correct shampoo and conditioner in conjunction with the colouring process.
The Normalising Shampoo should be used as part of the colouring process as it has been formulated to neutralise and halt further oxidisation. The Royal Cream Conditioner has also been formulated to close the cuticles on the hair shaft and seal in the colour. Whilst the cuticle remains open hair could feel coarse and porous.
Tips to help with with Colour selection of Herbatint
It is always wisest to select a colour close to your natural shade.
If hair has 50% or more grey, you will need to select a colour from the 'natural' range (base colours) numbered 1N - 10N.
You can if you wish mix in a proportion of the Ash, Copper, Golden and Mahogany range.
In order to achieve a total coverage of grey with the Ash, Golden, Copper and Mahogany colour series, it is suggested to mix the chosen colour (40ml) with a natural series colour of the same number (20ml) or if more convenient 30mls of each works well.
Always use equal quantities of colour with Glycol.
If your hair has less than 50% grey and you wish to just cover the grey, select a shade 1-2 shades lighter than the desired outcome because when you add colour onto colour it will always go darker.
If hair has little or no grey, the copper, ash, golden and mahogany shades can be used without mixing in a 'natural' base colour.
The 'C' series (Ash colours) may be used as 'colour correctors' to contain or control traces of red or gold tones just as the 'M' & 'R' (Red colours) can be used to control traces of ash.
Hair that has been coloured dark is sometimes difficult to lighten. Dark colours have larger pigments absorbed into the hair shaft leaving no room for the hair to absorb any lighter pigments. Light hair can readily absorb dark colours.
You should be able to lighten brown or chestnut hair by 1 to 2 shades and lighten up to three shades on light chestnut to blonde hair using Herbatint.
Dry, permed or colour treated hair tends to be more porous than normal hair and will take colours more readily. The effect will be more intense colour. You need to bare this in mind when making colour selection. If you have had a perm, wait at least one week before colouring.
