Testimonials (from Tints of Nature)

‘I just wanted to drop a line to say how much I love your product. My hair has never looked so natural or healthy since I started to colour it. Thank you!’
Donna Tamosaitis, UK

‘Wow! I just purchased your product from my local retailer and I’m VERY impressed! Nice color, great smell and the gloves are large enough for my hands (a big irritant of mine from US brand products). I will be purchasing this product again!’
Paige Norman, USA

‘I am a very satisfied customer after using your "tints of nature" 5N colour on my grey roots recently. I have very grey hair and have always had to go to the salon every 3 weeks for years, to touch up the roots. A friend of mine in New Zealand found your product in a health food shop and is also a very satisfied customer. I was hoping that you could give me an email address for a local contact here in NSW Australia, as I'd like to buy your shampoos and conditioners as well.’
Jacqui Tom, Australia

‘I love your product! I was about ready to just give up and go grey because of the harsh chemicals in ordinary products, when I discovered your product. It took some time to achieve the right color, but by mixing ½ Natural Light Blonde and ½ Natural Dark Blonde plus a bit more Natural Light Blonde, I’ve achieved a color that results in compliments even from my hairdressers. They like the highlights it gives me. Congratulations on producing quality products!’
Lynne Markham, Canada

‘Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with your semi-permanent hair color. It is a wonderful product! Very easy to apply, lasts through several hair-washings, leaves hair soft and colored beautifully (and so even!). I am impressed. ‘
