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...

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 more)

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 more)

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...

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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.
Here's a... (read more)

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... (read more)
