I AM A REGULAR NILINI USER. DO I STILL NEED TO PATCH TEST EVERYTIME I USE A NEW PACKET OF NILINI?
Natural Ingredients in NILINI are subjected to seasonal changes and might react differently in different seasons. Hence patch test is 100% mandatory for anyone.
However, for eg:- If you purchased 3-4 qty of same batch NILINI (same MFG date and month) and have already successfully done a patch test and know if the product suits you 100% and if you plan on using NILINI to cover your new greys and if you are sure you are going to use from the same batch ((same MFG date and month) ),Then patch test is not required.
For a different batch (different MFG date and month than the ones you already patch tested)- Yes, We always insist to proceed with patch testing first[/vc_toggle]
WHAT IS THE EXPECTED COLOR AFTER NILINI APPLICATION
NATURAL BLACK. As of now, NILINI is only available in natural black color

HOW TO PATCH TEST – Mix a 1-2 g of product in water to make a paste consistency and using a cotton earbud or a applicator brush , Apply the sample on the backside of your ear sufficient to cover an area about the size of a coin. Allow it to dry.
