“Fantastic!”

Written on: 01/12/2011 by catbrunet (1 review written)

I've been getting more and more sensitive to hair dyes over the years where I was trying the ammonia free ones with little success of covering greys and/or the colour lasting more than two weeks. Besides the last one I used I broke out in a rash all down the sides of my face, I could hardly breath so badly I had to take my inhaler and rinse it off earlier than I should have. It's been since May since I dyed my hair so my roots had grown out about 3 inches. After much searching on the internet… Read Full Review

Why was your shipping so expensive? I pay about $24 for one box and 42 for 2 boxes with sh&h at essentialoilcollection.com

“Works well for me. Very happy:)”

Written on: 19/11/2011

I read a few reviews here about allergic reactions to Sanotint hair color and I would like to write my story too. A year and a half ago I tried Sanotint hair color for the first time and had a reaction. I called the distributor in the United States even though I did not purchase from them. The lady told me that there is 2 Sanotint hair colors - Light and Classic, and only the Light one does not contain PPD, so I gave it a try again and it sure enough worked! Now I order it from US distributor -… Read Full Review

“SWOLLEN FACE AND WEEPING SKIN FROM A SMALL PATCH TEST...”

Written on: 08/08/2011 by aishahbabe (1 review written)

Hi. With regular hair dyes my hairline gets itchy and my skin gets flaky and my ears swell a little. Sometimes it can takes weeks to die down. I have been colouring my hair for years with no problem and this problem only started in the past 6 or 7 months. Any time in the past when I have done a patch test on my arm there has been no reaction but does affect my head?! I bought Sanotint light as it is meant to be safe. Did a little test on my left temple on Saturday. It has now been just… Read Full Review

Just a little update on this review. BEWARE of reading reviews on websites that sell this item. I bought Sanotint Light from Tulipa Hair & Beauty Supplies. I had to create an account to make a purchase and this gave me the right to write a review. Every other review on this webiste was five stars. The review I gave was 1 star. Today I have discovered that Tulipa Hair & Beauty Supplies not only removed my comment but cancelled my account!!! Beware!!

I hope you are OK, but please take the advice, do not dye your hair while pregnant. Not worth the risk. Stick with grey hair and keep yourself and the baby safe.

Written on: 09/05/2011

I haven't tried Sanotint as I also have severe allergies and the reviews here put me off trying it. I know how annoying it is not to be able to dye your grey hair, so i ve searched and tried lots of brands and have settled on Lagona. Do not use Lagona creme colour, but just the regular veg-dye if you are very allergic like I am. Always do the patch test just in case!!! But I ve been very happy about this product. Unfortunately the colour will never be what chemical dyes can give you, but at… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2011

I had a severe reaction to hair dye containing PPD 2 years ago, therefore researced to find a safe product. Sanotint light is advertised as a PPD free and ammonia free product therefore I felt confident in purchasing and using the product. Completed the patch test which after 24 hours seemed ok but 24 hours after using the product on my hair ended up in Accident and Emergency Department of local hospital with severe reation needing massive amount of steroids and antihystermine drugs, feeling… Read Full Review

Any time in the past when I have done a patch test on my arm there has been no reaction but does affect my head?! I bought Sanotint light as it is meant to be safe. Did a little test on my left temple on Saturday. It has now been just over 48 hours from applying 0.5ml of Sanotint Light on my left temple and my skin is weeping and my left side of my face is swollen - so much so that it is getting difficult to see out of my left eye. I am so glad I did the test I almost went ahead and did my entire head because it is claimed that Sanotint light has no ammonia or PPDs. I am scared as I am pregant and I know that there is so much medication I cannot take. I guess I am just going grey and there is nothing I can do.

Hi, I had your same frustration although I didn't get to use Sanotint, I would have a reaction with any haircolor. Today I used Sebastian Cellophan, I had it done at the salon. No reaction at all. It has no ammonia or PPD. The only thing I didn't like was the price $101 (the treatment + blow drying). I am 35 and not ready to show off my grays, it covered them very well, they look like highlights. I'd say give it a try. You can find them online too. Good Luck!

Written on: 03/02/2011

SanoTint Light totally saved me. I thought I would have to "show off" my gray hair because I am allergic to PPD. I am so happy not to have allergic reaction on SanoTint light.
Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. Just make sure to do a patch test!
Value for the money is fair, especially due to the fact that essentialoilcollection.com always has promotions, this time I got free shipping with code SHIP6.
Normally one box is good for two hair colors. My hair is short.
I hope my review is helpful!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2010

I tried Sanotint Light because I am severely allergic to PPD and was encouraged by the reviews of others who have used it successfully. However, I had a severe reactionto the patch test, and my dermatologist said that it contains toulene-diamine sulfate, which is a derivative of PPD. So please patch test!I'm so bummed that I'm not able to use this!… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2010

I too suddenly had a allergic reaction to a salon dye which left me with itchy hives. I went for medical patch testing and found that i am allergic to ammonium and formaldehyde (found in almost everything!). I have been using sanotint for a year now and so far so good. I buy the light brown. It covers 40% grey well but looks dark initially. However, it does fade to a nice light brown after a couple of weeks. Incidentally, i have tried no end of so called natural shampoos etc. The only shampoo… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2010

Sanotint Light Hair Dye - Colour Light Brown #74- After reading all the reviews on here I decided to buy a box. I have to honestly say it sat around for two weeks as I was very scared to try it. I did do the 48 hour patch test and would recommend everyone to do so. I just dyed my hair tonight no allergies, rashes or bad smell. I totally love it however I think a full review of how long it lasts is important. I'll be back with an update in a few weeks and hopefully not a few days.

I am not able to use commercial hair dyes due to the PPD. Have used Sanotint Light 2 x never had a reaction. The last time I used this product 2 weeks ago- to cover up highlights washed out in 2 shampoos. Called the company it was suggested that I was my hair the same day and towel dry prior to dying- and leave on for 45 min contrary to what the instructions were in the box. Gonna try one more time used boxes last time. Id does however leave your hair in excellent condition after. I was assured… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2010

I am allergic to PPD and starting to show signs of going grey so thought I'd give this a try. I did the skin test and came out with a severe rash so didn't use it on my hair! Very disapointed as the website seems to promote it as being natural and therefore very safe, whereas a quick look at the ingredients shows it contains hydrogen peroxide etc. It's also rather pricey (£12 or so including postage). I'd strongly advise anyone who buys it to do a skin test first… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2010

I became allergic to PPD back in October 2009 - so when I saw Sanotint Light - PPD free hair dye, I couldnt wait to try it out. I almost didnt carry out a patch test, but thank goodness I did as within 2 hours I had a severe allergic reaction to it. When I showed my dermatologist the list of ingredients, she immediately picked out Resorcinal and Toluene-2, 5-Diamine Sulfate, p-Aminophenol and Diaminotouluene and told me these all contained the exact same chemical of PPD. Since this episode, I… Read Full Review

I reported them to trading standards precisely because of their misleading advertising. Don't think they ever did anything though as they are still selling the stuff as PPD free, which is only half the story as those with a PPD allergy are likely to have an allergy to related chemicals. None of these companies ever print negative reviews!

Written on: 13/03/2010

Suddenly had a very bad reaction to hair dyes. My scalp was itchy with hives and swollen glands which lasted for ages. Drs couldn't help either. I then read about Body art quality henna and applied it. I mixed 50% henna with 40% indigo and 10% cassia to get a cooler brown colour. It healed my head (it is known for that) and gave me lovely shiny hair. However, some red still poked through which i didn't like. I cautiously applied Sanotint light hair colour in light brown and waited...6 weeks… Read Full Review

Just got back from salon. I have terrible allergy to ppd and after the last visit to salon using a product that has only minimal ppd had a very bad reaction. Researched Sanotint light and took a chance. I ordered several colors, printed out the color chart and went to my hair dresser. She used the extra light golden blonde and i was very happy with the results. So far, no scalp flare up. If this works, I will be forever grateful to Sanotint because I am not ready to go grey… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...I have also developed a terrible allergy to normal hair colours. I have 50% grey hair and I am also not ready to go grey yet. if this has worked for you hope it works for me. Do you know any stockists in the London area? Do you have to go to a salon to have your hair dyed with sonotint light? I have searched the web site but the only stockist is in leicester and my first order has got lost in the post. So I am put off and don't feel like ordering again from the same people.

Written on: 14/04/2008

I have coloured my hair for years but after using a DIY high street brand that nearly made me pass out from the smell of ammonia I decided to research alternative chemical free dyes. I came across Sanotint. The Classic range is ammonia free and the Light range is also p-Phenylenediamine free.
I highly recommend this product. Its easy to apply, non-drip & economical as I only used half the packet on first application (I have shoulder length hair) which is great as can do root touch up at… Read Full Review

I am currently testing Sanotint light on my inside elbow and it burns and smells. I am afraid to use it on my head if it burns my arm. I have tested Clairol permanent dye on my inner elbow and did not get a reaction but it does react when I dye my hair.

This Santotint Light really smells strongly! Someone said her doctor said it still contains chemicals like toulene diamind sulfate.
