Start by selecting the N number which is closest to your natural colour – use this as your base number.
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).
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. If you have a lot of grey and would like to use a brighter tone such as a Copper (C) or Mahogany (M) shade, we would recommend mixing it with a similar number Natural (N) tone, e.g. 5M + 5N or 7C + 7N.
NATURAL (N) shades are the best for covering grey hair because they provide a uniform colour and a more natural looking result.
