We’re always talking about Natural Hair Colours, which can mean 1 of 2 Colour types. First, there is the Natural Hair Colour that you were born with. The second is the Natural Hair Colour that comes in a tube. This post is all about the Natural Hair Colour that you add to your Hair.

What are Natural Hair Colours?

Without getting too hairdressey, Natural Colours are single pigment Colours that range from 1 (Darkest) to 10 (Lightest), the single pigment means they have no other reflects, they are a simply a single Colour such as Black, Light Blonde etc.

All Hair Colours have a Natural Hair Colour base to begin with, that determines how Light or Dark a Colour is. They then get their character from the primary and/or secondary pigments and reflects added to the Natural Hair Colour base.

But why would you use a Colour that you already have?

Naturals are booster Colours. They enhance your Colour with smooth, soft hues that add extra oomph to dull Hair. They turn your Hair into a glossy, polished Hair Colour the same way a nude Nail polish does to a fingernail.

They are also great for a number of other things like:

Colouring Grey or White stubborn Hair, for excellent Grey coverage.
Mixing with other Hair Colours particularly Gold, Ash, Chocolates or any other Vibrant Colours.
Adding weight to fine, wispy pieces of Hair or using the benefits of olive oil in the Colour to create soft Hair. Plumping up your base Colour.
Complete, low maintenance Hair Colours.

Who will suit a Natural Hair Colour?

Everyone. These Colours bring a Natural glow to your Hair and complexion and are incredible at highlighting that beautiful bone structure of yours. If you are unsure which Natural is for you, choose the one closest to your Natural Colour or no more than 2 shades Lighter or Darker.
