Herbatint Permanent Herbal Haircolour Gel 8D Light Golden Blonde -- 135 mL
I really like this product
I have been using it for probably 15 years. I was looking for something that was less toxic than what you generally find. You can mix the colors to find the perfect shade and it's easy to apply. Beware that the colors are darker than the box indicates. The color does fade with washings but go a shade lighter if you don't want a shock.

Excellent gray coverage without harsh chemicals
I've been using this product ever since I grew concerned with all of the harsh chemicals in the product I used faithfully for many years (Loreal Excellence). I am very pleased with the performance of this hair color, however, it does fade out bit more quickly than the formulas that do not use natural ingredients. Be forewarned that you will need a bowl to mix the ingredients together, and a brush to apply the product to your hair. I have found another solution. There is a plastic bottle with a comb-like dispenser on top that is sold at Wal-Mart that works great to mix (shake together) the two solutions. I then squeeze the bottle gently to apply the product along my roots. The scent is very mild, too.

good safe haircolor
I have been using herbatint for about 10 years and like it a lot. Have been especially happy since finding it at Vitacost at a much lower price.

Great product once you get color right
In my experience, the color shown on the hair color spread sheet is always darker than how it turns out on my hair so I always choose one or two shades lighter. My hair is 75% gray. Mixing a color from the natural series - 7N with a lighter 8D has given me the perfect color. The 7N gives me the coverage while the 8D adds light - making it look more natural. Still, I add light streaking (home highlighting) with each coloring to give my hair the variation in tone I'm looking for. I've used this product for over 20 years.

Wonderful - just go a shade lighter
I love love love this hair color. No more 'straw' hair when I color, this product is so gentle. And no 'hair color' smell in the house. My aging hair looks so much healthier since I switched to this product.
ONE BIG CAUTION. Match your hair shade using the guide and then go up a shade lighter. If you don't, your hair will come out too dark.
I emailed the company and NEVER got a response asking about this. That's the only reason I have to give it a four in satisfaction.
