1. Will Herbatint cover my grey?
A:
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 (Gold, 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 40 ml of 4N Chestnut (the corresponding numbered natural shade) and combined 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.

Q. How do I go about selecting the best shade?
A: For many people this is not an easy decision. All brands use the same basic numbering system of 1 to 10; this will help if you have used other home-use brands in the past. It’s hard to lighten black and dark brown hair but any other hair colour can be lightened by two shades at a time.

Q. How often should I colour my hair?
A: If you are using permanent Herbatint shades we suggest colouring re-growth when it becomes noticeable usually after 5 weeks. Vegetal Colours can be applied more often, up to once a week, or when colour washes out after 6-8 shampoos.

Q. How do I maintain colour-treated hair?
A:
To ensure long lasting results, we recommend that after colouring you use shampoo and conditioner with a special PH like Normalizing Shampoo and Royal Cream, which work in conjunction with Herbatint to completely close the hair cuticle and lock in the colour. The Herbatint range of specialized treatments and conditioners are rich in herbal extracts and proteins to protect and nourish your hair and leave it with a deep shine.

Q. Is Herbatint tested on animals and is it environmentally friendly?
A: Herbatint is not tested on animals and is manufactured to the very highest, international (GMP) standards of practice. Furthermore Herbatint hairdyes, including the Flash Fashion range, use biodegradable, recyclable packaging.

Q: I have had allergic reactions to hairdyes in the past; will I react to Herbatint?
A: Most people who have reacted in the past DO NOT react to Herbatint. With NO AMMONIA present very little of the product penetrates the epidermis and consequently does not enter the blood system. 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.

Q: Are Phenylenediamines (PDDs) present in Herbatint?
A:
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 carcinogenic, i.e. cancer-causing agents. Herbatint contains the minimum possible levels. We recommend that pregnant ladies and people undergoing chemotherapy treatment DO NOT use any permanent hairdye and consider using the Vegetal Semi-permanent range which contains NO PPDs, NO Peroxide and NO Ammonia.

Q: Is Herbatint a new product?
A: Herbatint has just been introduced to South Africa. It has been the undisputed market leader for 30 years and is available in 28 countries worldwide.

Q. How do Herbatint colourings compare to Henna?
A: Unlike Henna, Herbatint is easy to mix and apply and is fragrance-free. While Henna creates a solid coating around the hair shaft making it impossible for other colour treatments to be used, Herbatint penetrates the hair with colour. Herbatint leaves hair in great condition and is available in 30 rich shades.

Q. Will Vegetal cover my grey?
A: If you are experiencing the first few grey hairs, Vegetal will tone these to look like natural lights in your hair. If you are more than 10% grey you need to use Herbatint which will cover your grey.

Q. Can Vegetal change my hair colour?
A: Vegetal will brighten and add highlights to your natural shade.
