Just over two years ago now I’ve been committed to natural hair colourants over chemical boxed dyes and started this natural journey to prolong the life of my hair and prevent it from drying out. Boxed dyes used to be my addiction and something I would do religiously every month to be left with shiny, colourful hair that covered my natural hair. This was an obsession of mine and something I haven’t really grown out of but don’t feel as committed as I was in the past. Today I feel much more laid back about my haircare routine and now only colour my hair every 6-8 weeks and don’t feel the urge to keep colouring my hair every couple of weeks! I think this is down to take a more natural approach and not wanting the latest or most vibrant crazy colour on the market. These day’s I feel more content with my hair colour and find it unique enough that I don’t feel the need to change it every month and I haven’t looked back! Today I will be sharing a new brand that recently reached out to me called Tints of Nature, a natural hair colour brand that will easily replace your chemical boxed brands for healthier, shinier looking hair.
Product Details: Tints of Nature in Soft Copper Blonde*
HOW DO I USE/APPLY IT?
Applying the formula was simple and just like any other box colourant where you comb through the hair to remove tangles and then apply the colour! I have my colouring routine and tools which I like to use such as my root dye brush but with that being said you can just use your hands to distribute the colour but make sure to wear gloves. I waited for 45 minutes before removing the colour for full lightening effects and used the shampoo and conditioner sachet provided in the box to lock colour and shine in.
WHY I DON’T LIKE IT?
The only thing I didn’t like about this dye which is down to my personal preference is the fact I had to shampoo my hair beforehand. I normally just apply the dye to dry hair the following day from washing to see exactly what I’m doing and if I’ve missed anything such as roots. This wasn’t a huge problem but I do prefer the latter as it can be much less time to consume.
WHY Do I like IT?
If you are a regular reader you will know by now that I don’t actually use boxed colourants on my hair but swerve more towards the henna route! I normally pick up blocked henna from the likes of LUSH cosmetics but do love the powdered formulas listed on Amazon for easier application. If there’s one thing I miss about boxed dyes is the fact they’re so easy to use and take so little time to process that it changes your whole look/appearance in a matter of time. I think this is why I was excited to try Tints of Nature out to see how well it works and because it was advertised as a natural product, this meaning I felt confident using it and for the natural results it would give. I wasn’t wrong with the end results and loved how this Soft Copper Blonde shade turned out! Its light and created different depth and tones of red to my hair which I absolutely love!! The colourant itself is free of ammonia, parabens and resorcinol. The best thing about this is the natural ingredients such as orange, grapefruit, comfrey and chamomile to smooth, moisturise and protect the hair. Does it contain plant-derived extracts and vitamins C and E, what’s not to love?
Soft Copper Blonde added some beautiful highlights to my hair and warmed it up a little for winter, I really enjoyed the overall experience and it never had that strong pungent smell of chemicals that I normally don’t mind but started to realise how bad it must be to breathe that in when my mums colouring her hair! I’m always trying to get her to switch to more natural brands and definitely got her interested in this one so can’t wait to see what she thinks as it’s renowned for covering grey hair. The colour was highly effective and definitely made a noticeable difference as my hair was lighter before the colouring process and now darker and warm! Made with 60% organic ingredients, the smell wasn’t fruity but more like warm coffee, it was a hard smell to describe but definitely different to anything I’ve experienced before but in a more pleasant way. The hair colourant is non-irritating and gentle on the scalp and left my hair more volumised, shiny and hydrated even day’s after application!
