Hello, I have been trying in vain to contact various eshops with herbatint products as well as the manufacturer's website, I purchased herbatint shade blonde, which I believe is a light brown, at least according to the picture. I used on my dyed, dark hair, I don't have black but dark brown unfortunately thanks to drugstore colors. I'd like to lighten it to a light brown. I don't know if it is enough to use herbatint platinum blonde or to mix it with darker blonde? Thank you very much Veronika

Hello Veronika, Herbatint unfortunately cannot lighten more than two shades due to its gentle formula. So if you have a hair shade of say 4N, the colour will lighten to a maximum of 6N. Unfortunately, you can't achieve 10N platinum blonde. But if he decides to apply it anyway, the lightening will again be somewhere around 6N. But I would recommend to use 6N, maximum 7N. Misha

Hello, I have bleached my hair blonde and now I have grown it out, I would like to use your color platinum blonde 10N on my hair, my original color is medium brown. Do you think I can achieve the shade in the picture? Platinum blonde, then? I wouldn't want yellow shades... Thank you for your reply
Dear Misha, thank you for your trust. Herbatint is only able to lighten by 2 shades, so if you have a shade corresponding to about 5N-6N, you won't make it 10N. In this case, I would recommend choosing a darker shade that is just two shades lighter. Alternatively, you can paint the offshoots for example 8N and after a couple of days everything completely 10N, but it is a bit more demanding and it is not completely guaranteed that the colour will be uniform. Kind regards, Lucka

Hello, I have about 6 cm of grey hair growth,,the rest of it is St.brown, dyed.I would like to achieve a solid silver color .The hairdresser offers me a gradual bleaching until my hair is completely grey and then just a silver shampoo.. I just want a uniform color now. Is there any way to achieve this with your paint ? THANK YOU
Dear Jindřiška, thank you for your trust. Herbatint colors are not able to lighten the hair by more than two shades. So if you have a colour in approximately shade 5C (lighter brown), you will not immediately achieve the desired shade. At the same time, it really depends on when you last dyed your hair, whether your hair is damaged, what shampoo you use, all of which can affect the final shade. As to the appropriate procedure that would lead to lightening, I will contact our paint supplier for advice and will contact you as soon as I have an answer for you. Dear Jindřiška, I am sending you the supplier's statement: unfortunately, a uniform light colour cannot be achieved immediately. Phase staining is possible under certain conditions, although large lightening is not possible with it either. The lightest ice shade is 10C, but this will lighten the colours of 8-9N/C at most. If you currently have hair in a light brown shade, such as. 5N - 6N, so unfortunately it cannot be lightened to 10C. Maybe you could lighten it twice (first on 8N, then 10C). But it must be taken into account that the growths that would be natural in colour again would not be able to be lightened to 10C at once, so the colour would not be unified. Kind regards, Lucka

Hello, I would like to use the color Swedish blonde or platinum blonde. I have bleached blonde hair and the growths I have are about 5cm dirty blonde with grey hairs. Which color would be better for me? And I'd also like to ask what the Swedish blonde looks like, is it light and more of an icy tone? THANK YOU
Dear Ilonka, thank you for your question. I would lean towards the option of combining the two colours you mentioned. In case you have gray hair, you can mix together 20 ml - 10 C and 40 ml 10 N. You should get a nice, cool shade. Kind regards, Lucka

To add to my previous question, I would like to ask if the color combination of 10c and 10N will work on my dirty blonde with gray hairs, especially if it's a cool shade from the head and not a red or yellow. thank you for your reply.
Dear Ilonka, following on from my previous answer, combining 10 C and 10 N should give you a cool blonde. In rare cases, it may happen that the dye will pull out hidden pigments and the color may have a tinge of red, but we have seen the absolute minimum of such results. Kind regards, Lucka

Dear Lucy, I wonder if the 2 shades could be made into a bayalage? I have ash blonde hair that hasn't been dyed in a long time, I had a microdermabrasion to lighten it up this February, but I want it to be like the sun, more pronounced.. If I bought 10N, painted the ends and some places closer to the head (according to the procedure of how to do bayalage - only some layers), left it on, washed it off and e.g. the next day or a week later I would dye my roots and my head a darker shade (Swedish blonde?), brushed it through, would it blend naturally with the lighter part or would the darker colour cover the lighter one and nothing would happen? Or if I did the opposite, darker tone first and then build up with lighter strands and comb through the transitions? I would be very grateful for any information or experience on how to add plasticity to hair..Thank you. Thank you.

Dear Kristin, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, I don't know if I will be able to answer and advise you this time. Herbatint can be used like any other paint. 10N and 10C are more or less the same in lightness, 10N is just a more natural shade, 10C is from the ashy range, so colder. However, how they catch depends very much on the actual substrate, so it may happen that they catch very similarly. It is therefore unfortunately difficult to say how it will catch on for you. The condition of the hair also has an influence, on dry and damaged hair the colours catch darker, etc.
