Tints of Nature
Tints of Nature is an at home hair colour brand that provide a range of semi-permanent, permanent, and highlighting hair dye kits, but they also have a haircare collection for coloured hair. They are Choose Cruelty Free approved and neither ingredients or finished products are tested on animals. They have a really comprehensive page on animal testing that you can read here.
The main claim of this shampoo is to lock in colour, I feel like I can’t really comment on this because I’ve had my hair bleached ombre for quite a few months so I can’t comment on whether it locks in the colour of freshly dyed hair, however it did make my highlights nice and bright.
The Hydrate Shampoo also claims to nourish, plump and moisturise with a “unique blend of natural and certified organic ingredients” to make your hair healthier, soft and bouncy.
I don’t like to use shampoos that contain SLS because I find it just completely strips all the natural oils out of my hair and fades colour really fast, so it’s a good thing that this shampoo doesn’t. It’s vegan and also doesn’t contain any parabens.
So what does it contain? The shampoo is a blend of coconut, aloe, camomile flower, comfrey, vitamin B5, and wheat protein – and it smells absolutely heavenly! It’s just a very pretty, sweet smell and your hair smells nice all day after shampooing. One more thing to mention is that this shampoo is suitable for all hair types. This shampoo cost £6.99 for 250ml.
The conditioner is slightly smaller than the shampoo (by 50ml) but this doesn’t really bother me as I always use more shampoo than conditioner. Again, the conditioner smells beautiful! It doesn’t contain any silicones which is really good as well because that can cause product build up.
It’s suitable for all hair types and it’s vegan too. It claims to deliver super shine and repair damaged hair. My hair was shiny after using these products but I’m not sure it’s really possible to repair a hair fibre that’s already damaged – however this conditioner does care for your hair really well.
I was really excited to try this product! It is an award winning, ultimate conditioner, and has received awards from the Natural Health International Beauty Awards and The Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards.
The treatment smells to me like dolly mixtures, it just smells so sweet and lovely. What you do is after shampooing you rinse your hair and then the bottle recommends 4-8 pumps of the treatment (I have shoulder length hair so I just used four) then I massaged it in concentrating on the lengths of hair before distributing the product through with a comb (life hack: always keep a spare comb in your bathroom to comb through your conditioner and/or other treatments – it makes the product so much more effective!)
After fifteen minutes I rinsed the product out and I was amazed at how soft and weightless my hair felt. It felt like hair that had never been bleached or styled with heat tools or subject to other any forms of abuse.
The treatment uses a blend of sweet almond oil, vitamin B5, jojoba seed oil, aloe, chamomile flower, and comfrey root. It is vegan and for £8.99 I would definitely recommend this product to anybody with coloured hair just as a regular maintenance tool to keep your hair healthy and soft.
This is a picture of my hair after I shampooed, used the treatment, and then the conditioner. I left my hair to air dry so that there wasn’t any sneaky shine added from blow drying and didn’t use any other products to not skew the results. I think my hair looks in really good condition after using this treatment range! It was soft, it looks visibly shiny and the blond highlights and ends look nice and bright.
My hair also smelt really nice, and it just felt nice and soft to touch. If you are looking for soft, glossy, healthy hair (and I don’t know who isn’t!) then the Tints of Nature hair care range is definitely worth a try.
Now, I’m not a big dry shampoo fan. I wash my hair every two days and in my experience dry shampoo leaves your hair flat and dull looking, with a rather unsavoury look of greyish, white powder in the roots. It also usually comes in an aerosol and it just doesn’t feel good for your hair.
But, I believe, that the Tints of Nature dry shampoo has converted me into being a dry shampoo fan. It’s not like any I’ve seen before, it comes in a little plastic bottle and it has an eco-friendly pump. The nozzle is fully rotatable so you can aim the product exactly where you want it rather than a haze of dust firing at you.
This dry shampoo also smells really nice and it doesn’t take away shine from you hair (after you spent so much time and effort getting it there in the first place). I will definitely be using this in between washes for a freshen up. One little thing that bothers me with this product is when you fold the nozzle back down some loose product falls out but it’s not really a major problem.
The dry shampoo is vegan and contains 100+ washes. It costs £11.99 for 15g of product. The formula contains 99.5% natural and organic ingredients which I think is reflective in the price. It is a little pricey, but it is by far the best dry shampoo I have used.
Tints of Nature is definitely on to a winner with their coloured hair care range. If you are looking for a shampoo and conditioner that is going to keep your coloured hair in tip top shape and stop fade, then I recommend the Hydrate Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner. They smell lovely, they’re vegan, and not badly priced at all.
The Hydrate Treatment is absolutely amazing, it smells gorgeous, it’s vegan, it’s made from lovely ingredients and it’s a fair size bottle for £8.99. It has honestly made my hair feel the best it has felt since being colour treated. If I had to pick one thing to recommend out of all four products, it’s this treatment.
I really like the dry shampoo. It’s a handy product to have for in-between washes and possibly on the go, but for £11.99 I don’t think it’s really a necessary product to keep your coloured hair healthy and happy. If you are a lover of dry shampoos and use them regularly I would give it a try but it’s not essential to a haircare regime.
