Naturtint vs. Herbatint

I have medium brown hair and probably like 10-15% grey, but they are resistant greys. My hair is wavy, meaning if I let it dry naturally it is frizzy but not necessarily curly. It is not flat but it's not really thick or course either. I'd say medium between fine and thick but a bit more on the fine side. I believe my hair is somewhat porous, except for the greys.


Anyway, Naturtint turns my hair into straw and also makes it very red and brassy. I have tried it several times, and tried different colors, never going more than 2 shades from my natural color, and always brassy. Either that or the dark blonde to browns leave it way too dark.

I always use the N, neutral colors because they suggest that in order to cover grey. I could mix an N with an ash tone to try and fix the brassiness, but because it is so bad on the condition of my hair I don't bother. It starts out a bit dry, and then each week it becomes more strawlike until I just can't even blow it out without it being total frizz, and that is even after using my straightening solution.

Herbatint is slightly better on the condition of my hair than Naturtint, but still brassy or way too dark if I used a dark blonde or brown. I finally got Clairol radiance today, a semi-permanent colorgloss that is NOT good for you but I just couldn't handle the orange, straw hair any longer. The toxic chemicals actually keep my hair in better condition. :( I am looking around for a natural semi-permanent to try, because maybe my hair just doesn't like permanent haircolor.

Love Herbatint NEW
by: Laura

I've never tried Naturtint ~ I've been using Herbatint for many years and it's perfect; I love it! It covers my grey completely, doesn't turn a brassy red and absolutely does not fade or wash out. My hair is left soft and 'natural'. Love it!

Wanted to see YOUR comments NEW
by: BobbiM

I had to stop using the beautician's colors as I developed sensitive skin and the last time we used the salon's was the LAST as had to have her immediately take it off as my scalp started burning really bad! Went out and researched and found Naturtint and Herbatint. Not sure what the difference is (what lead me here as I was trying to find that out). I find I mostly use the Herbatint (can find good online sales). I buy the product and my hairdresser applies it. I keep a stock on hand with her. We had the opportunity many years back when it was first available in the USA to have a rep from France talk to me and my stylist about the comparable colors to use and why this was a much better product. I use 6N underneath and 8N on top. I have medium-dark brown hair. The grays are covered and look like natural highlights with the combination of the 2 (use the conditioner that comes with this product upon first application after shampooing). I have noticed of late, after application I do get a couple patchy dry areas, but are soon gone after using my conditioning shampoo with natural aloe and mint. I have shoulder length hair, looks healthy shiny and not dry (for me) at all. The color combination looks natural, not dyed as I don't like that flat-color look. It does not contain all the harsh chemicals and was appalled at the horrible smell that my hairdresser was inhaling from their salon stuff as well. Feel it is better for us both.

Naturtint no good for me NEW
by: Anonymous

I just coloured my hair with Naturtint for the first time today. I used Copper Brown 4.6. It stung my scalp and turned out more copper than brown. It did not cover my grey hair (mine are very resistant too). Left in for 30 mins on roots and 5 mins on the rest. My hair feels nice and healthy, but very light orangey roots. :-(

Naturtint vs. Herbatint NEW
by: Anonymous

I use them both and I like them both. i like Herbatint for having more natural ingredients compared to Nutrtint. But the color 5n is perfect for Naturtint and 5n in Heratine is too dark. So I am waiting to hear back from Herbatint customer service to see if they have any suggestion.

Jury's out for me, but... NEW

I can confirm Herbatint is excellent. The condition of my hair after the first wash after dyeing my hair improved dramatically, it is a great natural dye and my hair stays in much better condition than the artificial dyes. Just trying out Naturtint so will be interested to see how it compares.

Still looking for a good one... NEW
by: Ellfling

Did u ever try tints of nature? I'm not sure if it's any better or not. Just wondering. I tried one of the above (maturing) about 10-12 years ago, & it turned my hair to straw, so I never used it again.

Hi NEW
by: Jack Easton

I chose Naturtint because it is also Resorcinol free, but I was very disappointed when I felt the texture of my hair after the processing.

Natural things always prove to be useful for the help of the people as compared to the things that are made artificially. But one of the major thing is that people have to make choices for them that either to choose the natural things or the herbal things.

I tried Naturtint for the first time tonight.. NEW
by: Anonymous

I just used Naturtint for the first time. I went to the store and had to choose between Naturtint and Herbatint, wanting to see whether a more natural product would reduce my hair loss. I chose Naturtint because it is also Resorcinol free, but I was very disappointed when I felt the texture of my hair after the processing: straw describes it! I cannot even pass a comb through it! And my hair is naturally straight and smooth! I had to load it with Silk Therapy oil in order to bring it back to a manageable condition! What a waste of $ 17! I don't know now if I want to try Herbatint, I am a bit scared.. suggestions?

Less peroxided - less damage? NEW
by: Amberlocks

@Candice..so if one adds less peroxide to the colour mix will your hair be less dry?

Hydrogen peroxide is your problem!
by: Candace

Hydrogen Peroxide the developer opens the cuticle so much... We only need the oxygen in the Hydrogen Peroxide! Years ago there was a company that a oxygen but, they are no longer around. The next best thing to use is a enzyme called Trionics you want to use " Grey Be Gone" it can be used with any color it just requires heat durning the processing time. Their # is 800 874-6649 the color I recommend is All~Nutrient or Eco Color or Organic hair color. Hope this helps

Herbatint is more gentle
by: Anonymous

After years of L'Oreal and Clairol, I started using Naturtint. It still left my hair feeling straw-like after a couple of weeks. However, when using Herbatint, my hair stays soft for weeks on end. I love it. My hair is long, past my shoulders. Coverage has never been a problem, despite color-resistant grays, at about 75%.

Reduce damage to hair . . .
by: Linda B

A hairdresser gave me a tip one time, after I told her the trouble I was having coloring my hair and the resulting damage. . . When using a permanent dye, just do the roots for the full 50 minutes. While the roots are covered with color, let a mix of color sit for 40 minutes to lose some of the strength. Then refresh the color on the longer hair with this batch of dye. Work it in and let it all set for another 10 minutes; then wash it out. I do mix colors. I use just Herbatint dark blonde and light chestnut on my roots and then add some mahogany blonde and/or light mahogany chestnut into the mix for the long hair. That has worked for me. I get lots of compliments on my hair color and condition (even from my hairdresser who cuts my hair).
