Naturtint Colorant: Combining Colors Review

Naturtint Colorant: Combining Two Colors Review + Giveaway

naturtint-colors-swatchWhen you reach a certain age, change becomes not only harder but can be nearly impossible. The one change that can be made easily, and still make an impact is to ones hair. I used to color my hair for a change, and now I am coloring it to hide the grey that is slowly taking over in portions to large to ignore.

When I was young I was blessed with a very light-colored blond that could only be described as a bleach blond. As I aged my hair darkened into a more sandy blond, which remained through out my early teens, when I discovered the wonder of hair coloring.

I began taking my blond into the brown family, and then I went drastic – I went magenta! I made a deal with my father that I would not veer far off blond until after my senior photo.

I happened upon Natrutint during my searching. I reached out to this plant-based hair color company to do a review and they were generous enough to send me a color to try.
