My being in semi-hibernation doesn't follow that I'd keep my locks in its unruly state. I'm due to have at least a #hair cut, an organic #HairRebond, and #HairColor. And yes my tresses are crying out loud (check last pic). Roots and gray (not as conspicuous) hair are showing. ? I've recently had the hair color ticked off my list. Yay! I've always wanted to try @herbatintphilippines but I never had the chance to color my own hair because of the pampering I get showered with. Oh the perks of being in hiatus! I'm loving Herbatint's unique formula enriched with 8 highly pure #organic extracts. Don't you just love that we have this healthier option? I super do! More #ontheblog soon – ❤ ?#HerbaTint is inspired by #nature, created to enhance #naturalbeauty. The first hair coloring brand that joined the global movement of people using business as a force of good.

As I mentioned in my social media posts recently, I’ve been pretty much in hibernation mode these past months, nearly half a year, really. Unlike my VA jobs since 2009 that were flexible, I actually took an a non-flexi one, which has challenged me to step out of my comfort zone. It’s a sweet place of rest in a sense that I’ve taken a considerable step back from the otherwise chaotic blogging event scene. I still get to attend once in a while, but only when my schedule permits.

I love that even if I’ve been mostly MIA, I still get have dibs on brands. But brands I’m passionate over like organic brands such as Herbatint, I cannot emphasize enough how extra thrilled I am to finally get to try

Herbatint at Healthy Options

I cannot count the number of times I have encountered Herbatint whenever I would comb the aisles of Healthy Options. But every single time, I would have recently just had my hair colored from a salon. Herbatint could not have been more timely. My tresses were in dire need of some TLC!

Hello there, roots and gray hair! 

Yep, the roots can’t be missed all right. But before you dismiss the gray hair claim, if you will look closely through those white colored strands, they are actually gray hair pretending to be highlights. Haha!

The Herbatint Package contains:

  • 1 bottle Herbatint hair color gel
  • 1 bottle Developer
  • 1 sample of Normalising Shampoo
  • 1 sample of Royal Cream Conditioner
  • 1 leaflet that contains directions for us
  • 1 pair of gloves

The box says that there is a Herbatint Application Kit that is sold separately, which I totally support as well. Including these items in one package will encourage disposal of items that are still useful and in fact, are designed to be re-used (e.g.the brush and protection cape). Thank you, Herbatint for going the extra mile. 🙂

Herbatint solution

I have used do-it-yourself hair color products in the past, but all of them were viscous. The Herbatint color gel and developer mixed together was at first very thin in consistency.

Make sure to mix the products together thoroughly until you get a gel consistency.

Herbatint leaflet

Herbantint being made in Italy, comes with an easy to follow multi-language translation leaflet.

Herbatint kit

Herbatint is the first hair coloring brand that joined the global movement of people using business as a force of good. Herbatint is not just ammonia-free, it is also enriched with

8 biological herbal extracts:

  • Rosemary: Natural antioxidant, rich in essential oils.
  • Cinchona: Used as a red coloring agent to ensure a better color cover.
  • Rhubarb: Used as a coloring agent. Its active principles produce a blond shade.
  • Walnut husk: Used as a brown coloring agent to ensure a better color cover.
  • Aloe Vera: Rich in vitamins, enzymes, panthenol and natural minerals. Protects and nourishes the hair while coloring
  • Meadowfoam: Rich in Vitamin E, it ensures better color cover and long lasting colour results.
  • White Birch: Hair tonic and re-mineralizing agent.
  • Witch Hazel: Treats the scalp, rich in flavonoids and essential oils.

I love that the bottles came with measuring guides.

I definitely went another notch organic when I tried Herbatint for the first time. And no, it was totally coincidental that I was using the shirt that was given to me in one of my many memorable organic farm visits I had last year.

Yep, I may have gone in semi-hibernation mode these days, but I need not look like hermit, right? Not that there’s anything wrong with looking like a hermit, it’s just that it is not something I am led to be in this season of my life.


Did Herbatint deliver?

Truth of the matter is, Herbatint’s unique formulation of 8 highly pure organic extracts alone initially got me all ears. But I’ve tried a handful of organic products that turned out to be subpar, to just take a brand’s claim for it. I was all ears, all right, but I also did not expect much.

The label did say that the package is good for 2 applications. But for my hair length, and with the amount of coverage that I need, plus the roots and gray hair involved, it would had done me better if I went on to finish the package in one go. Because there were some roots that were missed out when I used half of the mixture on my first Herbatint DIY hair color.  That’s my sole regret, and you totally have to take note of. Consider your hair length and needed coverage. 

That said, I’m sure I’ll have a better outcome on my next go. Herbatint sure has delivered. My hair does not feel dried out, I got the hair color that I want. I  have yet to find another hair color brand that is not just designed to protect my hair during hair coloring,  but also nourishes my tresses day after day.

Thank you Herbatint for bringing this gem of a product to the Philippine shores. We no longer have to settle for crappy hair color that may look glam and all, but hidden in the products are “dangerous to your health ingredients.”

Unlike most other hair colors that are available in the market, that will inevitably hurt not just your mane, Herbatint has no such mad chemicals. Any product we let touch our skin has the ability to influence our immunity and overall health. Hear! Hear! Preggy moms – What to Expect tagged Herbatint as The Best Pregnancy-Safe Hair Dye. Woot!

Don’t just take my word for it, look it up, and you can thank me later. 😉

Herbatint, you definitely scored a believer right here!
