Hairprint claims to be a 100% non-toxic solution for greying hair. Learn how this 75 minute solution can help both men and women restore their natural hair color today in our review.
What is Hairprint?
Hairprint is a new product targeted towards people with brown and black hair. The product takes about 75 minutes to apply. After the application process is complete, your hair should look naturally brown or black with no visible grey color.
Hairprint relies on the power of food-grade ingredients and can be applied at home, although some people apply the product with a friend or even a hair stylist.
Each Hairprint kit includes three part hair-restoring treatments, a pair of gloves, a brush, and a set of instructions.
Many people will notice sufficient results after a single 3 part treatment. Others, however, may need up to three treatments to achieve their desired results – especially if you have thick hair or lots of grey hair.
How to Apply Hairprint
As mentioned above, Hairprint is only available for those with brown and black hair. Blonde and red hair contains an additional pigment called pheomelanin and Hairprint will not work with it.
The application process takes about 75 minutes and involves five steps:
— Step 1) Wash and scrub your hair vigorously using the Hairprint pretreatment, focusing particularly on your grey hairs. Leave the product on your hair for two minutes, then rinse and dry hair until damp.
— Step 2) Put on your gloves (included in the package) and pour the contents of Packet #1 into a bowl and add the contents of Bottle #1. Stir vigorously and watch it expand and change colors. When the mixture turns a light red color, immediately begin applying it to your hair (see step 3). Don’t worry if the mixture turns black: this isn’t your final color.
— Step 3) Place the mixture on your hair using the brush as a spatula. Don’t slap it onto your hair like dye. Instead, work it thoroughly into the grey areas, starting at the top of your head first and then working your way down to the longer hair. Ensure the grey hairs are totally covered with formula and rub the mixture into your hair using your gloved hands, rubbing it into the roots just like you would rub in a hair conditioner. Make sure you finish applying the mixture within 6 minutes, as the dyes start to break down in the mixture after about 6 minutes and lose their effectiveness.
— Step 4) Leave the dye on your hair for approximately 15 minutes. It’s not a big deal if you leave it on longer, since the product uses natural ingredients instead of harsh synthetic chemicals. Rinse your hair until the water runs clear, then towel dry your hair until damp.
— Step 5) Repeat the above steps using Packet #2 and Bottle #2, then again using Packet #3 and Bottle #3. Formula #3 will turn purple and won’t expand like the first two packets and bottles you used.
The manufacturer recommends applying Hairprint every 3 to 5 weeks, depending on the growth of your hair. Some people are okay to apply it every 6 to 8 weeks, especially if they have less grey hair.
How Does Hairprint Work?
Hairprint is a lot more scientifically advanced than you might think. Instead of just bleaching your hair or flooding it with dye, the product actually stimulates the growth of a certain pigment in your hair. Here’s how the product’s official website explains the science:
“Hairprint creates a process whereby the natural pigment in your hair called eumelanin is recreated in the hair shaft. Eumelanin is arranged in the hair in a pattern unique to each person. We coined a word to name that unique pattern: Hairprint. That pattern determines how we see color. Chemical hair dyes remove the pigments in the hair shaft and replace them with coal tar or aniline dyes. When eumelanin is restored to the shaft of the hair, your innate hair color returns.”
When you dye your hair, you have to be careful to choose the right color and leave the dye on for the correct length of time. Otherwise, your hair will end up looking faded and fake. Hairprint replicates your natural hair color to ensure that isn’t a problem.
Here’s the full list of ingredients used in Hairprint:
— Baking Soda
— Mucuna Pruriens
— Sodium Carbonate
— Carbomer (a Thickener)
— Hydrogen Peroxide
— Diatomaceous Earth
— Manganese Gluconate
— Ferrous Gluconate
According to the creators of Hairprint, the product takes all of these natural ingredients and turns them into another natural ingredient: eumelanin, which is the pigment that colors your hair.
How to Buy Hairprint
There are two options when buying Hairprint: Brown and Dark. The ingredients in each formula are identical, although the Post Treatment solution is different.
Those with light to medium brown hair are advised to use the Brown formula while those with black hair should use the Dark formula. If you have dark brown hair, you can choose to either move to the “warm” side of the color spectrum (use the Brown formula) or get a richer, darker color (use the Dark formula).
Colors are also separated into two different categories based on your ethnic heritage:
— Caucasian, Hispanic, and Asian Hair (Men and Women)
— African American, Afro Caribbean (Men and Women)

Does Hairprint Actually Work?
Most reviews online have positive things to say about Hairprint. However, there aren’t a lot of reviews online at the moment. One reviewer said:
“I have not seen my hair like this since I was 25 years old.”
As more evidence for Hairprint, the company claims the product was extensively tested in “salons operated by experienced AA cosmetologists and stylists” for two years. Better yet, “all reported that Hairprint restored color to grey hair.”
These cosmetologists were also surprised by how well the product “added strength, sheen and body, and eliminated frizz, while being gentle, odorless, and harmless.”
Oh, and when the company says this product is natural and food-safe, they’re not kidding: you can eat this product, although it wouldn’t taste very good.
Certain types of people may need to order two initial kits. The company recommends that people with long hair, thick shoulder length hair, or lots of grey hair may need two kits to start. So if you found the product wasn’t effective after just one kit, it’s not unusual to use two kits.
You can read more testimonials at the company’s official website.

Conclusion: Who Should Use Hairprint?
Hairprint is recommended for anyone who wants to avoid the “scourge” of grey hair. If you have brown or dark hair, then this may be the natural product you need to fix your grey hair problem (it doesn’t work on people with blonde or red hair).
Reviews from cosmetologists and users seem to all agree that it works. If you’ve over 50, going grey at a younger age, or just want to fix up the natural color of your hair, then Hairprint appears to be a valuable solution.
