Clairol Colourseal Gloss
Advantages: easy to use, lovely smell, great results
Disadvantages: none at all for me
For the past few years I have been having to colour my hair due to the appearance of ever-increasing white hairs at the roots. I'm saying white rather than grey as apparently those with orginallly ginger/auburn hair tend to go white if the hair is untreated.
I have used many products over the past couple of years and one of my favourites is Nice n Easy because the results have always been good and especially as the conditioner is one of the best I have ever used. I was really pleased to see that the seal/ conditioner is available to buy on its own now because there was only enough in the dye pack to give 2 applications.
The tube comes in 3 shades for the following -
and is available in 30 ml tubes for around £1.29 from Boots, Lloyds and better known supermarkets.
I was in a bit of a quandry which one to purchase as my hair is strawberry blonde - ie light ginger and blonde - but as it happened I've used all three shades and all with great results so I am wondering if 1 shade suits all.
I initially chose the blonde because the red looked too harsh and that was fine. My daughter uses the brunette which I inadvertently used and that was fine too. Another time I picked up a red one by mistake and, once again, it made no difference to the colour of my hair. By using all 3 I have not noticed any difference in the colour and it seems to have sealed in my original one.
Clairol claim that the lotion seals in your colour, conditions and prevents early fading - I agree with all this because it certainly works for me and I can get away without colouring for a good week later than I used to.
However, although the lines on the tube are given as a guide to haw much seal to use, I tend to use almost double mainly because I love conditioner on my hair. The tube doesn't last as long but it is worth it for me.
Also it is advised to use it on a weekly basis but I use it twice a week and people usually comment how shiny my hair looks.
It is really easy to use - just unscrew the cap, squeeze out the desired amount and leave for 2 minutes on washed & rinsed hair, then rinse off. The cream is white and smells of coconut and although fairly thick it rinses out easily and leaves my hair virtually tangle-free.
I love this product and would highly recommend giving it a try. I am awarding the full 5 Dooyoo stars for Clairol
Summary: well worth a try
