First Most Natural Hair-colouring Gel Free From Harsh Chemicals and Ammonia


Image: http://www.herbatint.com.au


Herbatint
is the first organically based permanent hair colour gel with added benefit of having the capability of covering grey/white hair without the use of ammonia. With 30 shades in the range there are colours which are totally intermixable, allowing for the achievement of any colour result desired.
Why Herbatint?

It is the first most natural hair-colouring gel to be free of harsh chemicals and ammonia. It incorporates protiens, botanicals and natural vegetal extracts such as Cinchona, Rhubarb and Walnut, nutrients that give hair its deep, natural shine and vibrant, healthy colour.

It provides nourishment, protection and conditioning to both the hair and scalp. It offers a safe, gentle and effective way for covering normal grey hair with just 1 application. Fort long hair use complete contents of package. For medium to short hair contents should allow for two applications. It lightens by one or two tones without hurting the hair structure.

It is available in 30 rich shades and is easy to use. It is formulated by Herbavita, the leading European hair colour specialists (sold in 25 countries), with over 30 years of experience in developing natural hair care products for beautiful hair.


How to use Herbatint?

As with any hair colour system, the success of these products depends very much upon following the instructions given on the product packs, the condition of your hair and the colour you choose. Although Herbatint/Vegetal are gentle products, they may stain your fingernails so the use of gloves is advised. Dry, permed, treated and grey hair tends to be more porous than normal hair and will therefore take upp colours more readily. The effect will be a more intense colour and this should be borne in mind when selecting which colour you require. Always test products on a small piece of your own hair, before undertaking the complete treatment. It is particularly important to leave the products on for the times given. Colours may appear much more intense or even totally different whilst processing takes place. They will not therefore correspond to the colours in the colour chart until the full processing time has elasped. We strongly recommend the use of the Herbavita Normalising Shampoo and the Royal Cream each time the hair is coloured, to prolong the life of the colour and ensure perfect condition every time. This is particularly important after using Herbatint.

How "Boggle" and "Word Factory" Came About

Word game players are all aware that "Boggle" 4x4 grid lettered dice is the origin of the "Word Factory" 5x5 grid version. Unfortunately, there is no clear record of the patented made in the Philippines as I update this article somehow someone deleted the information through Wikipedia via Boggle history. Instead, Wikidpedia re-written it "no version of Boggle offering a 5×5 grid was marketed outside Europe for an extended period until recently[when?]". Kabayan speak up!

Wikipedia records "Boggle is a word game designed by Alan Turoff in 1972 and trademarked by Parker Brothers and Hasbro. The game is played using a 4x4 grid of lettered dice, in which players attempt to find words in sequences of adjacent letters."

In the Philippines, a similar game which was first distributed in 1978 and is still in circulation up to the present is the game "Word Factory." The game was first patented in the Philippines, and is currently being manufactured and distributed to selected retailers by the Philippines-based game manufacturer, 13 P.M. Enterprises. Word Factory was a variation on the version of Boggle as it existed in 1978, using a 5x5 grid instead of a 4x4 one, and using plastic dice instead of wooden ones. At present, the game is being marketed to other countries, targeting mostly migrant Filipino families.

In a nutshell, 1978 when "Word Factory" game was first distributed in the Philippines not long after the "Boggle" game relaunched and redesigned their marketing sell in 1976 since its birth in 1972. However, the "Word Factory" as one of the Boggle game variants has no record yet on Wikipedia as we speak.


Which game word do you like to play guys offline?

I first came to know about and play the "Word Factory" when I was in high school 1990's until it really worn out with my family and friends. It was a gift by our parents when we were bored playing scrabble when no internet and no loads of toys unlike kids in the Western world. We played it until worn out by putting tape over it/rewrite the letter on the dices when we get to college. Mind you the three-minute timer still working, enough timer for cooking eggs! It did last long and it's worth a brain exercise!

Word Factory is better for me because it has 5x5 grid dices and it is still flexible to play with 3-4 letter word for kids and adult. At long last, I bought my own new one "Word Factory" from the Philippines for about P349.75 worth (AU$10.00 depending on the rate conversion). Word Factory can have 2-6 players ages 7 to 77 or even older as far as the brain can work. Why not 90 year old?
