Necessary precautions and useful advice before use

  • Always carry out the sensitivity tests and strand tests
  • Never use Naturtint Permanent Hair Colourant if the scalp is irritated, sore or has any cuts or abrasions.
  • Never use Naturtint Permanent Hair Colourant on eyelashes or eyebrows. Rinse immediately if mixture accidentally comes into contact with them. Seek medical advice if irritation persists.
  • Always use all of the mixture or empty unused portion properly and throw away container as leaving it to stand may cause it to burst.
  • Always apply the product immediately after preparing the mixture.
  • Never mix Naturtint with other hair colour products.
  • Always wear gloves provided throughout colour process.
  • Always wait 48 hours before using product on permed hair or a week on straightened hair.
  • Always keep product away from heat and light.
  • Always use plastic or glass utensils - never metal or ceramic.
  • Always avoid contact with porous surfaces and clothes as permanent staining may occur.
  • Never use product on top of hennas, semi-permanent hair colours, colour restorers or metallic dyes. Wait until semi permanent has washed away as it could cause hair discoloration.
  • Always keep out of the reach of children.

Sensitivity Test

Naturtint Permanent Hair Colourant is highly unlikely to cause any form of allergic reaction. However, on rare occasions, hair colourant products can cause individuals to suffer sensitivity reactions. It is for this reason that a sensitivity test must be carried out at least 48 hours before colouring the hair. Simply follow these steps:

  • Cleanse a small area of skin inside the bend of the elbow with soap and water.
  • In a plastic or glass container, mix a capful of Naturtint Permanent Hair Colourant and Colour Developer then apply with a cotton swab.
  • Allow to dry and leave untouched for 48 hours. Use the remaining mixture to carry out the strand text next.
  • You may use the colourant if no allergic reactions occur.




Strand Test

In order to assess the selected tone and development time required to achieve it, simply carry out the following test:

Take about one inch or 3 centimetres of hair

Apply the mixture remaining from sensitivity test a few moments ago

In most cases, rinse hair being tested after 20 minutes. In the case of strong or more resistant grey hair, leave for a further 10 minutes

When strand of hair reaches desired shade, take note of the total colour development time. Discard any unused mixture as this cannot be applied later
