I purchased this dye in 6N Dark blonde looking for a natural color product. I have in the past paid for salon organic color, because I am sensitive to chemicals and hate the smell of conventional dye.
For starters the ingredients right away list Propylene Glycol as the 2nd ingredient and hydrogen peroxide developer. These ingredients alone can be irritating, but the they top it off with alcohol and sulfates in the shampoo. Topped off with fragrance and alcohol in the conditioner. The listing was advertised as

I have been getting my hair colored at the salon for years until the last year or so. My hair started falling out and after getting all these tests ran at the doctors office I couldn't pinpoint the problem. Until I was so embarrassed about going to the salon and decided to start doing it myself. I tried herbatint, which has low ammonia 3%. To my surprise, no hair fell out. I was so thrilled. After using this for a year, my hair has finally grown back and it is not thin anymore. As far as the color goes, I just use it to color my grey. No more fancy highlights for me since I can't do them at home. I do add two N colors together and it gives me a little bit of a hightlight. To cover grey you HAVE to get the N series. I have medium brown hair with a little bit of golden highlights. I use 4n and 6n. I mix 6 parts 4n to 2 parts 6N. My natural color is a darker brown. It does come out a little dark at first but will lighten over several washes. If you get too light a color, after several washes it will be too light. It took me a long time and several different boxes of color to get it right for me. I now just do touch ups on my roots every couple of months for the new growth and I love it.

I have dark brown hair. I bought 8N color, and it gave my hair light brown color, exactly the color that I was interested in. I am so happy. It works great for me.

I was so excited to get this product after extensive research on natural hair dyes. I've been dying my hair for over 10 years and have never had a problem. This dye made my hair feel like straw afterwards. I've never experienced that. When I wash my hair it feels stringy and rough. I bought a special conditioner to try to fix it but I'm not having luck. Am now thinking I will cut my long hair shorter and am going to see a professional for an opinion and my options.

I have been using Herbatint hair color for over 20 years now. I love it. I mix 50/50 8C Light Ash Blonde with 7N Blonde together and have absolutely no trace of brassiness on my greying brunette hair. The combination is fantastic. I never was very pleased with the outcome of my hair color using other brands, but, Herbatint is a winner!! My husband never complimented me on my haircolor until I began mixing 8C & 7N. He said it looks like you finally got your hair color looking very natural looking. I would have to say I agree. Also, I just began applying a few drops of Jojoba Oil on my hair too and it's so shiny, smooth and straight, which is usually such a problem for my hair! My hair looks wonderful. I wished I knew about both years ago instead of experimenting with so many different hair colors to get rid of that hideous orange/red tint in my hair.

Covers all grays, doesn't reek of ammonia, perfect color for Asian hair, love not using as much chemicals. It's harder to apply without a squeezy bottle, you need your own applicator brush, but once you get the hang of it, it works well. Important to note that you don't have to use the whole box--you can use just a little for root touch ups because you use your own container to mix the solution and can re-cap it for future use.

I used to use Henna, but there really is no way to standardize the color very well when you use the henna mixtures for dark brown hair. They have to use indigo and I found I got a different color almost every time: too many variables. So, I set out on the search for something almost as healthy for my hair (and me since your skin absorbs everything you put on it.) I did try some other brands, but this is the one I like best. It doesn't smell so bad you feel like you are suffocating (though it does smell so the more ventilation you have the better) and the color comes out rich and lasts as long as other hair dyes. It does a good job covering up grays, though admittedly not quite as good as more chemically dyes. It's a trade off I will take. For the most part, my grays just look like lighter browns after I dye my hair with this---after a few days, a couple resume their stubborn grayness. I mix this color with the 5N to get something in between the two, as the 4N itself can be quite dark and I find the 5N too light. My natural hair color (which I am trying to emulate) is a medium dark brown (more on the dark side). The only downsides of this dye is that it's not the easiest to put on--it's a little runny, so you definitely end up with a lot on your scalp. I use a highlighting brush from Sally's Beauty Supply, divide my hair in to different parts, and brush it on all over. When doing my roots, I just do my roots but then (my hairdresser told me to do this) in the shower, I put a little shampoo all over and a tiny bit of water, then I try to spread the dye out to the rest of my hair and let it sit for a few minutes. This ensures that you don't end up with any drastic lines from old color to new. The other downside is that the plastic gloves they give you look they were made for Fezzik, the giant from The Princess Bride. Whose hands would EVER fit in these things? Seriously...if you haven't bought this yet you don't know what I
