Sanotint Light

“Joan Cameron”

Written on: 08/04/2014 by CriticalConsumer (1 review written)

I have been using regular hair colours with out any reaction from last 10 years and but recently I had bad reaction. So I was exploring different options. I first tried without ammonia, but still had allergic reactions. Then tried another form of henna, but it just turns the hair colour into little brown colour after keeping for few hours and it's a pain to keep the henna for such a long time(usually I keep it for 2hrs). I haven't give up and I was keep browsing then I came across Sanotint… Read Full Review

“Looks natural”

Written on: 20/12/2013

I've been using Sanotint since 2005, I think. I love it because it looks natural on hair and I noticed that the condition of my hair improves when I use Sanotint. I decided to right this review to let folks know that you don't have to pay a big price on Sanotint. You can get it for $13.97 at essentialoilcollection.com if you get their discount card which is free to get, but you have to place an order that qualifies you for a discount card (I think any order of 5 products qualifies you for one)… Read Full Review

Hi! Your reaction to this product sounds exactly like how I react to Sanotint, Sanotint Light, and any general hair colour product. I am allergic to PPD and peroxide, and while Sanotint Light claims to contain no PPD, it does contain peroxide, in order for it to be a permanent colour. I am just curious to know, seeing as your reaction sounds as extreme as mine, if any other products have worked for you? I'm finding it very difficult to source a permanent hair colour solution that doesnt contain all the nasties. Thanks for any suggestion / advice you might have! :)

“If I could give it a minus star I would”

Written on: 23/03/2013

I'm allergic to hair dyes and have always had a reaction to them. As I've been going greyer every year I thought I'd try this product as it doesn't contain PPD's. now I don't apply direct to my head I take large sections of hair and comb it on trying not to touch my scalp and ears. After applying I really liked the colour and showed no sign of a reaction. 3 days later I have severe burns and weeping around my hairline. Woke up this morning and both eyes are swollen to the point of closing. Been… Read Full Review

“Still allergic...”

Written on: 08/03/2013 by boomzilla (1 review written)

I bought this hair dye because of it's allergy description. "Extremely low risk." I developed a sudden allergy to hair dye after getting a tattoo and several people suggested this brand. I did a skin test and still didn't get an allergic reaction. I experienced an allergic reaction only after I had washed all of the dye out of my hair and it began to dry. My skin test spot even flared up. Now I've got hives all over my head. They're not as bad as they were with regular hair dye, but they're… Read Full Review

“Worst reaction ever...it is not ppd free..do not use this”

Written on: 06/03/2013 by cjreview223 (1 review written)

I became allergic to hair dye many years ago and have search for a ppd free product . THIS IS NOT PPD free. I can use stains and temporary color...never permanent or semi. Thank god I did a patch test or I would be in hospital. The top dermatologist here confirmed it was a ppd reaction. Be warned! … Read Full Review

“Finally, I have color without pain!”

Written on: 05/12/2012 by Jlwalker4 (1 review written)

Found my 1st gray hair when I was 26y/o & started the cover-up. I've had an allergy to PPD since I was around 30y/o. It was like having poison ivy on my scalp with swollen neck glands & would last abt a week. I would use Fanci-full to cover my roots until I HAD to color. After a few cortizone shots, I decided to try Sanotint "Light". I'm a brunette & the color chart "Golden Blonde" looked like my color. I watched the video, read all the how-to advise online & colored my hair. I can not… Read Full Review

“Yes to Sanotint Light”

Written on: 01/09/2012

As a recovered bladder cancer patient I was told to avoid any products with PPD. After spending ages trying to find one I came across this product. It covers my grey hair and looks fab - only qualm I have is the container - as it is in a tube it is difficult to measure out half the contents. I have short hair and only need to use half. If only they would use a bottle instead then I would give it full marks.JXXX… Read Full Review

“Test proves allergic”

Written on: 28/07/2012

I am currently trying Sanotint Light on my inside elbow and it burned immediately and it smells very strongly. I would be afraid to use it on my head since it burns my arm. I feel like I threw away lots of money. Had high hopes for this product but a reader review said her Doctor told her it has toulene diamine sulfate. Cannot say I like it because it proved to have chemicals which I react to… Read Full Review

You have no clue what you are talking about. EDTA has nothing what so ever to do with PPD. Do a little research before you jump in and make a fool of yourself.

“Not ideal but much better than most, albeit expensive”

Written on: 26/06/2012

Not sure if what I used was Sanotint light or just regular Sanotint. I found the dye quality and colour to be amazing for a relatively nasty-chemical free dye, although some improvements could be made here to reduce the toxins further. Still, no skin irritation for me, and my favorite colour, n. 17 Blue black, has the truest deepest jet black of any dye I have found on the market. What really annoys me though, is that they tell you that one packet is enough for medium-long hair, but this is… Read Full Review

“Not good enough!”

Written on: 12/06/2012

Sanotint is touted as the hair dye with the least PPDs, and while that may be true, it's still enough to cause a severe reaction. Too bad I had to waste $25.00 to find this out! Sanotint is apparently the last resort for many people with allergies. Give it a try, but don't get your hopes up! Since Clariol quit making their non-permanent hair color, I'm left with nothing… Read Full Review

“Sanotint - Better than PPD dyes but not perfect”

Written on: 24/04/2012

I have not had an allergic reaction to PPD but I was growing concerned at the amount of heavy metals I was putting on to my hair, especially as I am quite grey now and need to use darker dyes much more frequently. I went for the light version of Sanotint rather than Classic because I wanted to try something without any PPD at all and see how it went. The colour choice for dark hair is limited. So far I have tried mahogony and chestnut. I find it a fiddle to mix the colour and fixative in a… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2012 by Katyusha (1 review written)

Hi! I don't have any allergies, but I don't like ammonia in hair colors. Last time I colored my hair with henna. Unfortunately it did’ not cover my gray completely, so I decided to try Sanotint medium brown. I got natural, even tone color from root to the end and my grey is completely covered. I am happy with this result. Going to do it again. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Don't buy from Vivasan (Bad Customer service and product)”

Written on: 27/02/2012

I had a extremely bad allergic reaction to PPD. Therefore,I bought Sanotint hair color, and it was BAD. My scalp was bleeding, itching, red, etc... I've called Vivasan for a refund, and "Bill" from Vivasan was absolutely rude, and refusing to refund my money regardless of my allergic reaction. He said it was my fault not his fault that I have allergic reaction, and he's not accountable for it eventhough Sanotint claimed it doesn't have PPD… Read Full Review

Sorry, you've had such a bad experiance! I buy my beauty products from Vivasan, too. I used to order from Nevada, but now I stick to Vivasan in Pennsylvania. They ship cheaper and faster and I did not have any problems when I needed an exchange. I am not sure how their refund policy works though. Because as far as I know each Vivasan company is independable and privatly owned, so their rules can be different too.

“Greatly Disappointed”

Written on: 30/01/2012

I'am officially allergic to PPD, confirmed without doubt by hospital results. I had great expectation when I discovered Sanotint without ppd amonia or nickel and the good reviews on their site. Guess what, I reacted badly to it, the worst reaction ever, worst than with regular available hair dyes. Tried to go on their site to write a review but could not get access to the reviews even though have an account with them. Just advise everybody to be very careful… Read Full Review
