Herbatint permanent hair dye is free of ammonia, resorcinol and parabens. We believe it is the safest option that currently exists on the market for those who do not wish to use henna-based dye. It contains propylene glycol which is on our list of ingredients to avoid, and some other ingredients (like Ethanolamine) that we would not usually allow. We think grey is beautiful, but if you are going to buy dye, and don’t want to use a henna product, this is the next safest option. This decision took us 2 years to make, and was swayed by the large amount of customer requests to stock this product.

  • 1 bottle Herbatint hair colour gel 60ml
  • 1 bottle glycol developer 60ml
  • 1 sample of either shampoo or conditioner 15ml

Herbatint is easy to mix and apply and is fragrance-free. If you have used a henna based dye in the past few months, please note that using chemical dyes over hair colored with pure plant dyes can give unexpected results, which are usually much darker color than would normally be expected, because plant dyes don't “lift” as easily. Chemical dyes may also fade faster than usual because henna makes your hair smoother and less porous so the chemical dyes won't attach as well, and often wash out with fewer shampoos. Therefore, if you are going to change the type of dye you are using please, give it a few months between the dyes. To be extra vigilant we would suggest a strand test if you are switching from henna to chemical based or visa versa.

With Herbatint, you don’t have to make a choice between style and beauty on the one hand and looking after your health and supporting green practices on the other. The colour holds for as long as conventional permanent hair dyes and the depth and range of colour is not compromised by the lack of chemicals. With its unique dyeing process & quality Ingredients, hair is left in far better condition.

Herbatint is not tested on animals and comes in biodegradable, recyclable packaging.

For your Information:
How does Herbatint penetrate the hair with colour in the absence of ammonia?
Herbatint uses plant-based alkalines, with a maximum PH level of 8.5 (ammonia is 12.5), which avoids structural damage to the hair shaft. This also means that once the colour pigments have been deposited, the hair cuticle can be completely re-closed, resulting in better hair condition and far less colour fade. The addition of Aloe Vera assists with the transfer of colour.

Are Phenylenediamines (PPDs) present in Herbatint?
Like all permanent hair colour products Herbatint does contain PPDs, the colour pigments used to alter your hair's natural shade. Though the research is not conclusive, it has been suggested that PPDs are potentially harmful. Herbatint contains the minimum possible levels – 0.8 – 0.9% in most of the colours, with a maximum of 2.1% in the darkest colour. Current European legislation allows for PPD’s to comprise up to 6% of the constituents of hair dyes. Herbatint also contains numerous vegetal extracts to reduce the impact of PPD’s. However, we recommend that pregnant ladies and people undergoing chemotherapy treatment do not use any permanent hairdye.

I have had allergic reactions to hairdyes in the past; will I react to Herbatint?
Most people who have reacted in the past do not react to Herbatint, as the formula does not contain many of the potential irritants normally used in hair dyes, and much lower levels of those that may cause irritation. Herbatint also contains Aloe Barbadensis, which is an effective anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant. However, there are a small number of people with allergic reactions to all kinds of substances and we strongly advise performing a skin test prior to tinting your hair.

Which herbal extracts are included in Herbatint?
Herbal extracts include Aloe Vera, which is rich in vitamins, enzymes, Panthenol and natural minerals to protect and nourish the hair while colouring; Meadowfoam, rich in vitamins E and F, ensures better colour cover and longer lasting results; Witch Hazel is rich in essential oils and treats the scalp, Betula Alba (White Birch) is an effective hair tonic and Echinacea hydrates the hair.

How often should I colour my hair?
With permanent colour, we suggest colouring re-growth when it becomes noticeable (usually after 5 weeks).

Can I colour my hair after a perm?
Yes, with Herbatint you can, but use a shade lighter than you want (permed hair is more porous) and leave it on for only 10 – 15 minutes, unless you are covering grey, in which case leave it on for 30 – 40 minutes.

Does Herbatint work on bleached hair?
Yes, but remember to mix a gold shade with a natural if your target shade is 6N or above. 5N and below must be mixed with gold/copper on bleached hair.

Will Herbatint cover my grey?
Herbatint covers grey 100% on its first application, however, if you are more than 20% grey and you are opting for one of our fashion shades (Golden, Mahogany, Copper or Ash), we highly recommend that it is mixed with the appropriate natural tone. Natural colours are indicated with a letter N, from Black 1N to Platinum 10N. To cover mostly grey hair for example, 20ml of 4R Copper (the chosen colour) should be mixed with 40ml of 4N Chestnut (the corresponding numbered natural shade) and combined with 60ml of Glycol developer. Accordingly, if 20ml of 7R Copper Blonde is chosen, you would then mix this with 40ml of 7N Blonde and combine with 60ml of Glycol developer.
The higher the percentage of Grey that needs to be covered the greater the proportion of Natural colour that needs to be included.

Which conditioner should I use after colouring my hair?
Herbatint works continuously to develop newer, even more gentle hair products. Included with this product is a sample of Herbatint Moringa Repair Conditioner. This nourish and repair conditioner is 99.8% natural and can be used as an alternative to the Royal Cream Conditioner in the box post colour application to reseal the hair cuticles and restore natural balance. Without parabens, silicones, imidazolidinyl urea and SLS.

Herbatint Moringa Repair Conditioner Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Aloe Vera/Aloès), *Olea europaea Fruit Extract (olive), Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Glucoside, *Butyrospermum parkii Butter (Shea Karité), *Triticum vulgare Germ Oil (Wheat/Blé), Octyldodecanol, *Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract (Rosemary/Romarin) *Lavandula angustifolia Flower Extract (Lavender/Lavande), Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract (Moringa), Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Algim, Parfum, Citric Acid, Maltodextrin, Limonene.

This is an excellent product - I was afraid to try coloring my own hair during lockdown. But this is easy to use and gives a natural colour - affordable too

Definitely would recommend. Have worked with hair colour for years and this, to my joy and surprise, did almost exactly what was promised. Did not lighten as much as I would have liked, this however, was not unexpected as my hair still had the remnants of prior tinting. Looking forward to using again and again!!

I have been colouring my hair for more than 20 years. I learnt how bad hair colour is for us ladies. We want to look good but poison ourselves with all these chemicals. So I have been looking around for something better. I found that this colour matches my old hair colour exactly. No red scalp or bad chemical smells. It does not dry out my hair. I am so happy with this product.

I have naturally reddish brown hair and wanted to go a bit lighter, and this worked so well! I've retained my reddish colour and it's just lightened it a few shades. It was also very easy to use and apply, and I like that you can close the bottles if you don't use it all and keep it for next time.

Beautiful golden light blonde, and no strong chemical smells. Unfortunately I had to change colour as too warm for my skin tone.

Works so well

Lovely colour - awesome product. no harsh chemical smell. Easy to mix. Will use again.

I have been against the average, store bought hair dye/bleach for years as I have seen what damage it has done to my friends hair! I have been blonde all my life until I hit 17 years old and my roots started going brown. Naturally I didn't want to bleach it or anything but desperately wanted my blonde back!!! This was until I found Herbatint. This product has given me the perfect blonde (even a bit lighter than my natural) and doesn't damage my hair as much. As well as it being cruelty free and vegan it is an incredible product!

This is really a lovely product, it made my hair feel so soft, however, I had brown hair, and for some reason, this made my hair a bit more red/orange as opposed to blonde. I think only use this if you are already blonde and you want to be honey blonde.

Hair felt so soft after. The colour was warmer than I thought it looked on the box.
16/05/2018, By Roxy
I love this hair dye because it is not tested on animals but also lightens my hair quite a bit.
29/03/2018, By Penny-Jane
Love the Herbatint range, and this color is beautiful. Really golden and I can be happy that I am not putting any dodgy chemicals on my hair. One word of caution, I don't find that it covers grey very well but it is time for us all to embrace the grey ;)
07/03/2018, By Morgan
Stunning colour without the damage from chemicals. Very very happy indeed!!
24/02/2018, By Mo
this is such a nice product to use, it smells gentle, none of the harsh chemical scents you normally experience when dyeing your hair. It gels, so doesn't drip or run at all. It did lighten my hair but not to the colour I expected. I plan to try their dark shades next :) I think this product is worth the money
09/08/2017, By Sesetu
It did not change my hair colour or even lighten it
03/03/2017, By morgan
I have coloured my hair lighter for over 15years and suffered with dry and brittle hair as a result. After discovering Herbatint all has changed. Besides getting plenty compliments on the stunning colour - my hair is in great condition. Will not use any other hair colour system again. A must for those wanting a healthy head of blonde hair to show off!!

I have been using Herbatint 9N for many years. Recently for a while a change to a cheaper also natural product to save some money, but although also a 9N, the colour came out much darker. So I am back to Herbatint. However, this time based on other reviews, I only used half of the product as I only have to retouch the roots. Result 100% happy. So now I can use my favourite colour at half price....and it really does cover the grey!

This is the nicest hair colour I have ever used! The colour is natural and my hair is softer and less dry! I highly recommend it!
