Quick & Easy Tips for Beautiful, Healthy Hair

Nothing is better than embracing your natural, beautiful hair. The curls, the waves, the naturally straight hair… we love it all! But we all have those effortlessly frizzy hair days or the days where our hair has a mind of its own and just can’t be tamed. Sometimes hair is not the easiest thing to care for, and sometimes we just don’t have the time. Here are some easy-care tips for your hair that will take you only a couple of minutes.

Check the Temp

First things first – check the temperature of your water. We often wash our hair in water that is way too hot. Washing your hair in lukewarm to cool water is the least damaging for your hair. Washing with cool water closes the hair cuticles, and locks in moisture, whereas using hot water can rinse away natural oils and fade your hair color – and that’s a no go!

Brush Up

That’s right, we said it! Start brushing your hair from the bottom, and work your way up, kind of in a staggering motion. Starting from about 3 inches from the bottom of your hair, brushing your hair in a down position, and work your way up to the top. This is much less damaging then brushing from the root to bottom. You should also note that brushing your hair with a boar bristle brush or a wide-toothed comb is the best decision you can make for your hair.

Drying Gently

One important way to treat our hair gently is by drying it correctly! Air-drying your hair is truly the best way to dry it. Overheating your hair with blow dryers and heated tools can cause damage in the long run. It’s okay to blow dry or style your hair occasionally, and if you must blow-dry, wait until your hair is 70% dry. If you want the best experience with air drying, add a leave-in conditioner like Naturtint’s CC Cream for some extra moisture.

Type of Towel

Believe it or not, the type of towel that you use can make a big difference. Terry cloth or cotton towels can snag hair strands and increase damage. Try drying your hair with a microfiber towel for best results!

  1. Where can i buy the leave-in conditioner? Sprouts, Las Vegas, only has hair color, which has little packs of shampoo and conditioners. Looking to buy the conditioners (large quantities).
    Thank you.

  2. Hello,
    I have medium to dark brown hair. I want to achieve light brown and cover 30% of gray hair as well.
    I tried Naturtint 5N and 6N, but they all make my hair look brassy after several washes.
    Is there anything can be done to prevent brassiness?
    Thanks.

      Hello Riki,
      A few tips to help with that grey coverage and reduce the fade and brassy hues:
      1. Be sure to leave the application in for at least 40 minutes. Grey/white hairs are resistant to coloring and need more time to process, so start your application there first.
      2. Try reducing the developer by 25%. Using a quarter less developer than you normally do will ensure more of a color deposit.
      3. You can also try adding a couple capfuls of 6A – Dark Ash Blonde to either 5N or 6N to counteract those warm hues. You could also try mixing 6A in a 50/50 mixture with either 5N or 6N. Give our customer service line a call and we’ll assist you further – 877.372.6567

  3. Hello,
    I have the same problem as Judy, I’ve been very unhappy with my results as of late using the product I’ve used for years (I have not tried Naturtint but have seen it on the shelve next to the product I used). I want my hair to look as close to my natural color (medium brown) as possible. I stopped coloring my hair 2 plus months ago because of the brassy orange hue I thought it was because I have to much gray and my product stopped working thus producing the brassy look. So now I have gray roots about 1 1/2 inches grow out (very unattractive) and I’m scared to try a new color product. I didn’t realize you can mix colors to get a better customized color until I read this last post from Judy. Can you tell me if all product lines go by the same 5N 6N etc. color system? I was using 6N in the product I bought (product name I don’t recall it wasn’t naturtint or Madison reed). I learned a lot from your response to Judy regarding how to mix color and developer to eliminate brassiness. I need some help please I’m desperately wanting to get my hair color specifically the gray under control but not sure where to start.

      Hello Christy,
      Grey hair does react differently to hair color than our hair that still has color in it. Brassiness will occur because you are not getting enough of a pigment deposit in the hair. The Natural (N) tones are going to be the best colors for grey/white hair coverage.

      Each Naturtint hair color is given a shade code that corresponds with beauty industry standards. This code typically consists of a number followed by a letter. Our darkest shade is 1, and our lightest shade is 10. The letter represents a color category:
      • N—Natural tones provide a neutral tone (neither warm nor cool) and are best for covering grey.
      • G—Golden tones provide a subtle warmth.
      • A—Ash tones add coolness and work well for counteracting brassiness when mixed with an N tone.
      • C—Copper tones are vibrant and rich and are more orange in color.
      • M—Mahogany tones have both purple and red added for a more red-violet color.
      • R—Predominantly Red in color.
      Anything from 1 – 5 in color shades are really great at covering grey/white. Anything from 6 – 10 in color shades will have a tougher time and might need a little mixing help to get just the right shade.

      Please reach out to us via [email protected] or by calling us at 877.372.6567. We’d be happy to offer you some customized assistance 🙂

  4. Hi. I have been using your products for a long time 8N or 9N, but I find they are making my hair too light. I would like to introduce some lowlights into it by either using foils or a cap to make it less bright. Is this safe to do and what can you advise me please?

    1. Jenean Naturtint USA

      Hello Hilary,
      If your hair is getting too light there may be some tweaks to your process that might help. Speaking with a color specialist would be very helpful in this regard -877.372.6567

      To answer your question about lowlights – Naturtint is not designed for this purpose, so we cannot ensure the final result. Please consult a professional hairdresser for highlights and lowlights. Although you can go as dark as you would like with Naturtint, the products can only lighten effectively up to two shades. IMPORTANT: Do not use any metal, including highlighting foils, with Naturtint! We recommend ‘paper highlighting strips’ or a ‘plastic cap.’
