I was recently sent a package of Clairol Nice ‘n Easy natural looking hair colour to try by BzzAgent. It could not have come at a better time as I had a skunk like streak of grey hair at the roots and my red hair colour had gone a little brassy making the greys even more noticeable.
Nice ‘n Easy Hair Colour – What’s in the Box?
I chose 117/5G Nice ‘n Easy Natural Medium Golden Brown which I thought would cover the red, but not be too dark. This is an old school hair colour, not the Nice ‘n Easy foam, mix the two bottles (colour and developer) to make a permanent liquid haircolour in the with Precision Applicator bottle and CC Cream to help seal in beautiful colour and intense shine.
For those who care about the gloves included, these were the flat plastic ones, not like the doctor style latex gloves that many of us prefer. I keep a box of gloves handy anyway so used my own. Last time I used the ones that came in a box of hair colour, I ended up with a purple stain for a week on the pad of my thumb!
Nice ‘n Easy Hair Colour – My Experience
Recently, I have been using foam dyes when I colour at home and it took a little getting used to using a liquid hair colour again. I have thick hair and it was difficult to get it through all of my hair and I only just had enough in the bottle. Since I had quite a bit of grey, I followed the instructions to leave the colour on longer than the recommended 25 minutes. Maybe that was my mistake, as even using the CC cream, my hair felt wiry and unmanageable after rinsing the colour out.
The colour, however, is beautiful. The red tones from my previous colour are really highlighted by the Shift A Shade Nice ‘n Easy hair dye as you can tell in the top picture. It was a bit darker than I expected, but it does have lighter highlights, especially when in bright light and many people commented that the colour suited me. The grey roots are all covered, and even after several washes are not brassy/lighter which is a definite plus.
While I love the colour, overall, my hair still feels a bit “off” so while I would get this shade in Nice ;n Easy foam, which I have used before with no issues, I would likely not buy this colour. However, a friend received the same one and loved it, her hair is soft and sleek after using it, so it depends on your hair type. The CC cream did help me get some cute wavy hair.
