Nice n' Easy Perfect 10
Advantages: easy to apply, great results, great price
Disadvantages: none for me
I colour my hair about every 6 to 8 weeks and have used many of the main brands of dye over the years but keep returning to Clairol mainly because of the good results and the fact that they are a good price. This morning, on my trip to Superdrug to see their latest offers, I purchased the medium blonde for just £4.99.
The assortment of hair colouring these days is daunting but it was the box (plus the price!) that caught my eye and having just used it I thought I would pass on my findings to other Dooyooers.
The packaging is very stylish and looks very much like more expensive brands. It tells me on the front of the box that it is a salon inspired formula and claims to provide ' high gloss colour and healthy looking hair in just 10 minutes' plus delivering '100% long-lasting grey coverage'. The contents include 1 application and it is a permanent colour.
Clairol provide clear information about ingredients, safety precautions and application both on the box and in the enclosed leaflet. Instructions are also given in pictorial form for those, like me, who have lost their reading glasses! There is also a helpline and web address if you need help or advice.
Inside the box are a sealed pair of latex gloves, a colour cream, activating cream, a comb/nozzle end and conditioner - everything you need in fact to make the process as straightforward as possible.
I found the instructions easy to follow and applied strictly as told (I have made mistakes in the past) and, after rinsing and drying, have to say I am very pleased with both the colour and the texture of my hair. The grey roots have disappeared and the cover is even and it appears more glossy than it did earlier on today!
I have found some hair colourants to be overwhelmingly whiffy but this one, although a little strong, isn't too bad and any smell of the dye soon disappears once you apply the lovely conditioner. My hair feels soft too so it was well worth the 20 minutes of my day that it took me to do - 5 minutes preparation, 10 minutes waiting and 5 rinsing. The colour is not quite the same as that shown on the box but near as dammit and I am not complaining for the £4.99 I paid for it considering how much I would have paid to have my hair dyed professionally.
5 stars and a big smile from me on this lovely sunny day!
Summary: a well-priced hair colourant kit from Clairol
