I am one very upset (angry, enraged, sick to death) woman. I just came from a highly recommended hair salon, Curly Hair Designs in Salt Lake City. My hair is naturally curly and I have never gone to a specialist in curly hair for a cut and color. Now mind you, I have had some HORRIBLE hair coloring experiences. And I paid over $100 for the great occasion of having my hair ruined to the point of falling out and broken off. You think I would learn, no? Since I have problem hair I decided ONCE AGAIN to listen to advice and try a new colorist.
Are you sitting down yet?
- She was an hour late
- She stated that she only cut a few strands the first time to let the hair grow out so she could tell how the cut would evolve
- She supposedly used a natural color
She cut maybe 1/4th inch off of two PIECES of my hair, which badly needed a haircut. Then she put her color on my hair which had about ½ inch of gray growing out allover. When she was finished she charged me $124.00 for a “cut” which never occurred and color. When I got home, I noticed the roots of my hair, all around, were greenish. I mean, a metallic green. I had asked for medium brown. There was no brown showing just this alluring alien terrestrial green stuff that resembled…you know the word. Starts with S.
Did I say anything? No. Why not? I have no idea. I am a wuss. And I was afraid that I would get a contract out on her to dull all of her scissors (since she didn’t use them anyway).
I had had it.
My hair looks like green algae, with broken ends spiking into the stratosphere. And this happens often with “new and hip” salons that I try – and HATE. (My usual salon, Hair Designers, does a magnificent job at $56 for color and cut). Just so you know I am not the Hair Salon Nazi).
So when Z asked me if I wanted to try Tints of Nature, free from ammonia, resorcinol and parabens, and all natural I figured what did I have to lose, although I was scared to death. Tints of Nature can be bought online and at specialty stores like Whole Foods. SO. H
I was extremely happy with the results. No that is a lie. I felt ecstatic. First of all, no clumps of hair followed the water down the drain as I rinsed the color off (it did take a while to rinse it out, which is fine with me). Secondly, it didn’t sting like ammonia based colors. Third, the color covered the gray. Fourth, my hair felt well conditioned and soft. I only wash my hair once a week as it is very dry (thanks Utah air) and condition it in between every day. Tints of Nature lasted, covered the grey and did not break off my hair.and shaking, I tried 5R Rich Copper Brown and 4N Natural Medium Brown and mixed equal parts.
Like all women, HAIR is everything to me!
I can look 10 years younger, have fabulous compliments, and lose 10 pounds but if my hair looks bad, I FEEL UGLERS. And we don’t deserve to feel UGLERS.
Hats off to Tints of nature.
I will be buying you again. Also, the color did not create greenish or reddish tints to my medium brown hair, and the color was perfect. This Hair Salon Nazi was now a Product Goddess! THANK YOU TINTS of NATURE. I was ready to ….well….tear my hair out before I tried your product!!
