Sanotint Hair Dye

I'm searching for a hair dye my sensitive skin may have a shot at tolerating. Henna is so drying, & like the natural color-enhancing Jason shampoo I use sometimes, doesn't cover the silver...

Want a black or-off black (my natural color) that covers gray. Came across one called Sanotint... www.sanotint.com.

Anyone here ever use this, especially anyone with sensitive skin/scalp? How did it go?

    I've used it back in Europe, about 10 years ago. I didn't know it was sold in the States as well.
    When I used it, I found it nice, gave me a pretty reddish color, but it was not intense enough for me (I dye my hair fire engine red). I'd say if you don't want a radical change in your color or an intense color, it's a good product. It leaves your hair soft and conditioned and it's definitely not irritating (at least not for me, and I've got dermatitis on my scalp).
    I don't know if it covers grays because I didn't have them at the time.
    Good luck!

    I found a link in English.....www.sanotint.co.uk/

    And it says the Sanotint Classic is supposed to cover grays. I'm quite intriqued by this. Does anyone know if you can buy it here in the states or do you have to order it online?

    The black shades do contain PPD which is what makes me react.

    I have not had any drying with henna (in soft black - love it) but I also use oils in my hair as well to keep hydrated and silky

    I am a distributor of SanoTint products in USA. I'd say that about 90% of people who is allergic to regular hair dye do not have reaction when using SanoTint Light. If you are allergic to ppd make sure to order SanoTint light and not SanoTint classic. Sanotint light is ppd free and amonia free, Sanotint classic is ammonia free. I'm not sure if I can post web addresses here. Check out www.essentialoilcollection.com for hair color charts and for savings on SanoTint products.
    I hope this information is helpful.

      I have been using henna for 15 years, and never found it drying. When I rinse it out, I apply gobs of conditioner, work it in well, and rinse well. Always condition after washing.

        If the henna dye you are using isn't pure henna or a natural henna blend like with cinnamon or chamomoile indigo leaf and has developer, henna reacts to chemical processing which will then dry your hair meaning the vegetable minerals or metallics in henna will burn when mixed with chemicals that is why it isn't advised to use chemical processing with developer or continue any type of chemical processing after the use of henna. Henna will moisturize your hair the chemical will cause dryness especially mixed with henna. Aveda also carries some vegetarian hair coloring as well as some other brands but might be diffficult to get outside of auction sites.
