New Naturtint® Hair Care Blog Offers Hair Coloring and Beauty Tips: Expert Advice from Hair Coloring Specialist Doug Townsend

Having a hair coloring crisis? Concerned about chemicals and deciding on the best option to color your hair naturally? Looking for a style recommendation for the season or do you want to find out about the hottest new looks?

Hair coloring expert Doug Townsend provides timely and informative tips like these and more for women on his newly launched blog on the Naturtint® USA website at NaturtintUSA.com/blog.

His recent blog entries have looked at spring color ideas, the other side of henna, fixing a DIY hair disaster, and Valentine's Day hairstyles. Townsend will share his tales from the chair and offer insights that all women can find useful.

Salon owner, internationally trained stylist, and hair coloring specialist, Townsend has more than 30 years of expertise in the hair industry. He has trained at Vidal Sassoon Academies in London and LA, studied with Sebastian International's team in the 1980s and early 1990s, and attended Sebastian's global conferences all over Europe.

For a new Naturtint® consumer advertising campaign, Townsend styled and colored fashion models' hair by mixing colors from Naturtint®'s palette of 29 shades. Women can achieve the same looks as these models at home. For more on the colors he used, see www.NaturtintUSA.com/our-naturtint-models.php.

"The fashion models were very pleased and happy with the results using Naturtint," Townsend says. "It provided a natural shine and covered very well. It did a great job covering gray hair and had a nice smell. It was easy to mix, apply, and get off with no color stains."

Townsend says he sees women increasingly concerned about the potential risks of cancer from harsh chemicals in coloring products.

"Women, particularly those in their 40s and 50s, are very concerned about the risk of cancer from coloring their hair, and they're asking us for a natural product," he said. "Some are even going back to henna, which does not provide good coverage for gray hair. Naturtint® is a natural alternative. And it smells better than a salon product that markets itself as '99 percent natural.'"
