Clairol Nice n' Easy
Advantages: easy to use and great resutls at a low price.
When I look in the mirror and see the grey hairs on their unstoppable battle through my brown hair, I know it's time to get the Nice'n easy back in to get rid of them again.
Nice 'n' Easy is made by Clairol, a fairly well known company that make hair products. They have hair dyes that last from 6-8 washes which are semi permanent, one that lasts for up to 24 washes and one that is permanent and isn't meant to wash out.
They offer a variety of natural colours like blondes, reds, brunettes and blacks. You can get each colour in different shades from a chocolate brown to a darker brown and from ash brown to a whiter blonde. If it's purple or blue colours you're looking for then you won't find them made by clairol as they tend to only make natural colours.
I'm reviewing an ash brown colour from this range. I only paid about £4.65 for it from the Bodyshop in town. When I first started using Clairol I was wary about it being cheap but it is really good.
In the box, you will get the hair colour and the activating cream, a pair of gloves and an instructions leaflet. You also get a tube of conditioner to use after you've washed the dye off your hair.
You have to put the activating cream into the bottle of hair colourant and shake it up thoroughly to give it a good mixing. I then put the gloves on and squirt some on to begin rubbing it through my hair. There isn't any applicator so you just use your hands as you would with a shampoo which I personally find easier. I leave it on for 30 minutes to ensure it takes and then wash it off under the shower with warm water, shampoo it then use the conditioner that came in the box.
Afterwards, I dry and style my hair as necessary and am always very pleased with the result. I find it easy to spread the dye evenly around my hair so I get an allover coverage of my grey hairs, thank goodness!, and the shampoo that comes in the box makes my hair smell and feel absoloutely lovely, really soft and silky. When it's on my head, it does have a strong smell which isn't great, but it's not terrible.
If you haven't used it before then you might be good doing a strand test to make sure you're not allergic to any ingredients although I've never bothered to do this with any hair dye I've used because I'm normally in a rush to get it done out of the way.
Overall, I'm really impresed with this hair dye. I've used it before and will use it again, it does exactly what it says on the box, gives me great long lasting results and it is nice'n easy!
Summary: I love this hair dye for my hair
