Naturtint Hair Colourant - Light Copper ChestnutNaturtint Permanent has no ammonia or resorcinol.Do Strand & Skin Test before colouring hair (should do so every time you use colour)If experience blisters, burns or swelling avoid Naturtint permanent, try Naturtint Reflex*Selecting correct colourDarker: Can go dark as you like. If in doubt choosing between 2 colours, opt for the lighter colour.Lighter: Can only lighten 1 or 2 numbers (on colour chart) in one application, e.g. if person's hair colour is a 6N, then should not use a colourant lighter than an 8N, 8C or 8G.If person is very grey or white - best to avoid 10N & 10A (unless mixed with other colors) as they are too light to produce a significant color change.Covering Grey: May need to apply for up to 40 minutes (for areas that are very resistant to colour - massage the area for full 40 minutes).Select colour from chart nearest to person's own colour (will usually be from the Natural colours). If in doubt, select lighter colour. However, can recommend the customer goes for an even lighter colour - as a lighter shade is much more flattering against ageing skin & grey hair re-growth is less obvious against a lighter overall hair colour.Ash Colors: Not to be used on their own unless want to tone down hair colour i.e. if too yellow, orange, brassy, golden, reddish. Otherwise only to be used as "mixer" colours. N = Natural G = Golden A = Ash M = Mahogany C = Copper R=Red I=Iridescent(9R - should be labeled a 5R - treat like a "5"- i.e. depth of color)Colour Selection: 1 = darkest, 10 = lightestThe "Intense" & "Illusion*" colours are no different to the other colours [*I-9.31:I = Illusion, 1st no: 9=darkness/lightness(so same pitch as 9N) & ask us about 2nd/3rd nos.]Selecting the correct shade Naturtint uses the same numbering system as most salon & mainstream brands. The higher the number the lighter the colour e.g. 1 = darkest---- 10 = lightest.The letter after the number tells you what tone is in the shade N = Natural G = Golden A = Ash M = Mahogany C = Copper R = Red I = IridescentThe "Intense" & "Illusion" colours are no different to the other shades, they are just ranges that were launched at a later date.When selecting a colour try and match your natural or darkest shade from the colour chart (This will usually be from the Natural section).From this shade you can go 2 shades lighter, add a tone or go darker. (As Naturtint is a less chemical dye it struggles to lighten the hair more than two shades at a time but you can go as dark as you like)If in doubt choosing between two shades, opt for the lighter as it is more flattering against ageing skin & grey re-growth is less obvious.It is very easy to change from using a mainstream brand to using Naturtint, just choose a similar shade and carry out a skin & strand test before use, (It is often better to start with a Natural tone as this will ensure you are getting a good base). Avoid using Naturtint for 6-8 weeks after using a henna based product and always carry out a strand test. Unfortunately as henna can be very persistent on the hair, it can affect colour results.Skin testIt is VERY IMPORTANT to carry out a skin test and a test should be carried out EVERY TIME the hair is coloured. To carry out a skin test just mix up a small amount of colour and developer in a glass or plastic bowl until totally blended. (Keep the unused colour and developer in their separate bottles with the lids on tightly).Apply a small amount of the mixture to a clean patch of skin behind the ear and on the inside of the elbow. Once dried, repeat the process twice more.Leave the mixture untouched for 48 - 72 hours.If no skin irritation is experienced after that length of time, such as swelling, redness, itching, burning, eczemas, etc then you can proceed to use Naturtint. OTHERWISE, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT.Strand testIn order to determine you have chosen the correct shade and know the development time required to achieve it, simply carry out a strand test. Cut out a few strands of hair (enough so that the colour of the hair is visible) and add to the remaining mixture from the skin test, provided the mixture is used straight away.The hair will then need to process for a minimum of 20 minutes and maximum of 40 minutes for resistant grey hair. (You may need to do a few strand tests with different timings to ensure the best result).Once hair is processed, remove from the bowl and rinse until the water runs clear, leave hair to dry and hold up against your current colour. This is a better way to judge the final colour.Remember to make note of the final development time.
