Using the Natural Herbatint shade scale, ranging from 1N (Black) to 10N (Platinum Blonde), find the number matching your natural shade. Remember that you must consider the colour of your hair at the regrowth, not at the lengths.This will allow you to determine your initial shade.


Would you like your hair to be lighter, darker or would you prefer to keep your natural shade and only revive your colour?Thanks to its gentle formula that respects the hair structure, Herbatint allows you to lighten your natural colour up to 2 tones.

So, for example, if your natural tone is 6 (dark blonde) and you want:

  • To keep the same shade, use a tone 6
  • To lighten your hair by 1 tone, use a tone 7
  • To darken your hair by 1 tone, use a tone 5.

If you hesitate between two colours, you should always start with a lighter shade.It is easy to darken the hair, but once the colour has penetrated, is not simple to lighten it again.Also, if your hair is more porous due to previous dyeing or permanent or has simply been dried by the sun, it will tend to absorb more colour and appear darker.


Herbatint offers you a colour range of 30 shades among which you can choose your perfect colour, go to the Configurator to find the right one for you.Also remember that with Herbatint you can create and customize it by combining different nuances. Read our tips on How to mix two or more tones.


Mix an equal amount of colour and developer in a plastic or glass bowl (not metal), the quantity depends on hair length and volume.

Mix with a brush until you obtain a gel consistency and apply the product to dry and unwashed hair, starting from the roots.

Leave for 40 minutes, it is important to stick to the processing time.

Rinse thoroughly until the water is completely clear. Tilt your head back while you rinse so that the product does not get into your eyes. Then apply the Herbatint Normalising Shampoo.

After shampooing you can complete the treatment by using the Royal Cream, Herbatint regenerating conditioner, which you should leave in for 5 minutes and rinse again.


Herbatint is ammonia (which damages hair fibers) free, and does not use parabens as preservatives, or resorcinol for colouring. The absence of alcohol and perfume prevents hair from drying. It does not contain Nickel and the developer that is used contains a very low concentration of hydrogen peroxide (less than 3% after having been mixed), an amount that is well below the 6% limit fixed by European legislation (EC NO 1223/2009).

Herbatint’s gel formula has been successfully tested on sensitive skin. However it is always preferable to perform a sensitivity test 48 hours before it is used, to detect any intolerance to ingredients contained in the product.
Follow a few simple steps:

Wash the skin area chosen for the test (we recommend the area inside of the forearm or behind the ear) with soap and water and gently dry.

Mix equally small amounts of Herbatint colouring and developer in a plastic or glass container. Reseal the bottles.

Apply few drops of the mixture on the area chosen for testing, allow it to dry and cover it with a patch.

Wait 48 hours without washing.
