Tints of Nature Permanent Hair Dye, Lightener Kit and Hydrate Treatment Review

Coloring our hair with fun, bold colors can be so much fun but the damage associated with bleaching is not as fun.

First time dyeing my hair
I felt very nervous as it was my first time dyeing my hair at home. For the most part, I did the dyeing by myself but for the back portion, I had to ask help from my husband. Initially, I wanted to color only the part where my hair was dark but since I didn't use plastic or foils to section my hair, the dye was surely bound to get on my previously dyed hair.

Using the Lightener and the Dye
The maximum recommended time for the lightener kit was 45 minutes but I felt like my hair didn't lighten yet so I left it for a few more minutes, which I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to but I really didn't know what to do. I think I had the lightener kit on my hair for almost an hour. I thought that I might have made a mistake somewhere because there were a few parts that were properly lightened and some parts still looked a little blackish. However, after washing off the red hair dye, I saw that the color was able to stick on my hair. When I take a photo from afar, my hair looks blackish on top but when I look at the mirror or when I take a photo up close, it looks reddish.

What was most noticeably different about Tints of Nature’s Hair Dye is its scent. Other hair dyes feel the air with its chemical smell, often giving the eyes a sort of stinging sensation, however, Tints of Nature differs very much so. A deliciously pleasant scent fills my nose, which led me to wonder if I’m really holding a hair dye. If you ever have the time to check out their products at Healthy Options, you can find out for yourself how lovely their products smell.

Apart from the lack of a chemical smell and eye-stinging sensation, I also love how the absence of a burning feeling on the scalp. Usually, when you leave a hair dye for too long on the scalp, even when you have an ample amount of natural oils on the hair, it will start stinging if it sits too long on the scalp. However, with Tints of Nature, I didn't have to worry about that, even when I left the lightener kit a little too long.

What I really liked about Tints of Nature was that I was able to achieve a satisfying hair dyeing result without the damage and drying out associated with lightening the hair. Of course, a huge chunk of the reason goes to using Tints of Nature hair care range before and after dyeing my hair, most especially the Hydrate treatment. I felt that my hair felt a little dry after the dyeing process so I used the Hydrate treatment and voila, my hair felt instantly better, it felt smoother and softer after washing off the Hydrate treatment.
