Disadvantages: Stained my hands and hairline a little, the gloves are terrible!
When I was younger (I'm 38 years old now) I used to dye my hair every week or so and went every colour of the rainbow over those years too lol. Nowadays though I simply can't be bothered with the trouble and effort required and really don't dye it very often at all however tonight I was off out for the evening and my stepdad bought me a complete new outift as a treat and although the outfit looked lovely my roots showing through against the faded red ends I had did not look good so I popped to my local Boots store very close to closing time and picked up a box of this which was on offer from its usual price of £7.00 to £5.00 (for a limited time only). I found a lovely looking shade of dark brown that I couldn't find in amongst the cheaper offerings on the shelves and decided to try this one as on the box it says it only takes ten minutes to get the colour on your head so I thought that was a decent price to pay for something that quick acting!
The box is actually larger than the other boxes that were on sale and on the front of mine there was a photograph of a lady with lovely, glossy dark brown hair and we are told that it is Clairol 'Our Ultimate High Gloss Colour' Perfect 10, 'High Gloss Colour And Healthy Looking Hair In Just 10 Minutes! Guaranteed, 100% Long_lasting Grey Coverage' and that it gives 1 Application, Premium Permanent Colour and that of course it is a 'Nice 'N' Easy product. Other information on the box tells us a bit about the product and we are even shown a colour chart as to what colour hair you may have to what to expect colour wise from it, cautions and being told what is included in the box is given and finally contact details for the manufacturer are given then inside the box there is a leaflet along with the contents of course telling us how to use it, the ingredients it contains and so on as well as 72ml of the colour creme, 67ml activation creme (which is a runny white lotion you add the colour to), a colourseal intensive conditioner which is meant to give 6 treatments (to help keep hair in a glossy and healthy condition), gloves and a silver plastic comb that is easy to screw onto the main bottle of activating creme to comb through the hair for easier application. This is all very informative packaging indeed.
Whether you use this for a root touch up or an all over application this takes only ten minutes on the hair and is simple enough to apply. The colour itself comes in a squeezy foil tube you puncture with the lid and you pop that into the main bottle and give it all a good old shake, pop the gloves on and f you want to you can use the comb or not which is easy to screw on/off to the bottle. I did try to use the comb attachment but my my hair is a bit knotty even after combing it through and rather thin and I found it easier to blob out the mixed product onto my gloves and to apply it that way to be honest and all over my hair.
You apply this to dry hair and even though I have shoulder length hair I found it really easy to do this. I had more than enough product to cover mine and was careful applying it and then left it on for ten minutes hoping it would not only cover existing colour but some greys as well. It took ages to rinse it out and it did stain my hairline rather badly so the best piece of advice I can give you is to not use this on a day you going somewhere and to give it time to come off the skin!
This did sting my head a little whilst on the hair and the gloves ripped on my hands meaning I also got a bit of staining on my hands which did eventually wear off which meant I did have a giveaway in more ways than one that I had dyed my hair however my hair was left with no grey whatsoever, an even coverage and gloss and was a wonderful colour that drew compliments from rather a few people including my parents. Even though it rained I had no running of colour and my hair not only looked good it felt it too.,The conditioner within this is brilliant too. Its easily going to give me 6 applications which is nice and its a thick, white and very nicely fragranced of coconuts conditioner that is a joy to use and I feels locks in colour and helps my hair stay moisturised.
I usually use cheaper hair dyes than this to be honest but the quality of this is superb and it gave me such a lovely colour that yep I'll buy it time and time again in the future even at full price...I just wouldn't hesitate. This covers greys and patchy, older colours so served me well!
Available in all good chemists and supermarkets.
