Nice n' Easy Perfect 10
Advantages: leave on for 10 minute and easy to apply product
Disadvantages: Itchy on my scalp and did not cover all grey hair
I tried Clairol Perfect 10 in medium blonde on my more than 50% grey hair. I have previously gone to the hair dressers to have my hair coloured. On this occasion a friend persuaded me to try a home dye product, so I choose Clairol Perfect 10 because it is a well known brand.
Clairol Perfect 10 claims that it will cover 100% grey hair. Well I thought that's perfect for me It also says that you only need to leave the colour on for 10 minutes.
I think I was sceptical of this claim but decided to try it out anyway.
Inside the box there are step by step instructions that are very simple to follow.
The instructions say that you can choose either to use the colourant as just for a root application or as all over colour for your hair.
I found that the colour was easily mixed up and ready for applying. I did ask my friend to apply the colour as I thought it would be a lot easier than applying myself. The colour is applied with the application bottle and comb that is provided
The colour was easy to apply using the applicator nozzle. You then set a timer for 10 minutes and wait.
Word of warning here! During the 10 minutes I found that I did experience some intense itching and tingling of my scalp. The instructions do state to perform a skin allergy test 48 hours before, which I had not done. This was because I knew that I had, had previous skin allergy tests in hair salons with no problems or reactions at all. (On hindsight I should definitely have done this).
After the ten minutes, the colour is washed off and you are provided with some nice smelling intensive conditioning crème to apply.
When my hair was dried I did feel a little disappointed with the results of the colour although, my hair did feel shiny and very soft.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the colour result. The blonde colour was not as bright and vibrant as I had expected it to be and worse, the colour had not covered the side parts of my hair which still looked grey! I expected better results from Clairol.
Summary: A disappointing result
