Step One

Start by selecting the N number which is closest to your natural colour – use this as your base number.

Step Two

With Naturtint® you can lighten by up to 2 shades or go as dark as you desire (e.g. if you are naturally a 5 you can lighten to a 7 or go as dark as a 1).

Step Three

Then decide if you wish to stick with your natural tones, or add a different tone to your hair.

NATURAL (N) shades are perfect if you wish to keep your natural tone.

ASH (A) shades will add a cool tone to your hair and are ideal for counteracting ‘brassiness’.

COPPER (C) & GOLDEN (G) shades will add warmth to your hair whilst the MAHOGANY (M) & RED (R) shades will add vibrancy – ideal for those looking for a more striking or fashion led look.

COVERING GREY: Grey hair is hair that has lost its natural pigment and can soak up hair dyes more readily – meaning brighter shades can sometimes look unnatural.

NATURAL (N) shades are the best for covering grey hair because they provide a uniform colour and a more natural looking result.


Looking for a more temporary colour change?

Available in 6 fabulous shades, Reflex Semi-Permanent colours cover early signs of grey hair and last from 2-4 weeks. Choose a shade the same or darker than your current colour, as Reflex cannot lighten hair.
