Yes, as long as the previous hair dye product did not contain metals or henna powder. If your current hair dye contains lead, acetate, zinc, iron or copper please wait at least one month before applying Tints of Nature.
Strand test, strand test, strand test!
We would love to say yes they will, but all hair conditions are very different and so results will vary from head to head.
For best results, make sure you follow our colour guide and pick the best shade for you. And of course, do a strand test for a true indication of the colour result. Don’t forget, hair dye loves healthy hair! Read our blog on how to achieve happy healthy hair using our treatment range.

First up, congratulations on your pregnancy!
We recommend waiting until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy before applying any dye or to consult your doctor beforehand.
The Henna Cream shades are better alternatives to use whilst pregnant. Alternatively, highlighting your hair or not directly applying dye to your scalp can reduce any possible risks or reactions.
Please note: any chemicals used are only absorbed by your hair and not by your scalp or bloodstream. Always remember your sensitivity test to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used, including the lovely natural ones!
Yes and no. If left unmixed and in their original bottles the colour gel and colour fix can last up to 6 months from the opening date. However, if the colour gel and colour fix are mixed, the solution will only last for one hour due to the oxidisation process.
Please be aware we recommend storing the left-over bottles in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
Even though Tints of Nature is a Non Toxic Hair Colour, we do not recommend using our home hair dyes if you are undergoing chemotherapy, radiothearpy or other forms of health treatment. If you do wish to dye your hair with our home hair dye please consult with your doctor before applying and ALWAYS carry out a skin sensitivity test.
Again, consult with your doctor beforehand. If your scalp is irritated or damaged or your hair is very weak or brittle we advise not to dye your hair. If you wish to dye your hair we would recommend using our Henna Cream Semi-Permanent hair colour for a few months, so your hair has time to rebuild its natural strength and health.
Please ALWAYS remember your skin sensitivity and strand test. Instructions can be found under Top Tips.

Henna Cream is a PTD and PPD free hair dye, so is perfect for those with PPD allergies.

Colour Selection & Tips
The Permanent hair colours are capable of achieving up to 100% grey coverage. All of the natural shades 1N - 8N can cover 100% of grey hair.
If you’re using one of the fashion shades you just need to mix it with the same amount of the natural shade with the same number.
25ml 7D + 25ml 7N + 50ml Colourfix = fabulous fashion colour is capable of covering grey.
The only shade that may not 100% cover all grey is 10N.

The Bold Colours can be mixed to create different shades. However, we would always recommend you to perform a strand test prior to every application as this will give you a good indication on how the colour will appear on the hair, and you can then make an informed decision as to whether you wish to proceed with the full application.
Provided the hair has not been lightened recently, the hair can be immediately lightened, treated and the Bold Colour re-applied. However, if hair has been recently lightened then a professional should be consulted to determine whether the hair is fit for lightening.
To ensure vibrant, colourful results, if you have darker hair, we would recommend you to pre-lighten your hair to a light blonde with the Lightener Kit. The Bold Colours can be used on hair which has not been pre-lightened but results would not be vibrant unless you have naturally light, bright blonde hair.
Leaving the colour on the hair for 40 minutes and pre-treating with Hydrate Treatment will help achieve the best results. Pastel Colours would also be difficult to achieve unless the hair is pre-lightened or applied to naturally light bright blonde hair.
