Hair colouring with Clairol Nice n Easy Foam

I have been colouring my hair for quite a few years now and usually get it done at the hairdressers, but in the last few years having been busy with the kids and work, I decided to colour it myself.

I have been trying out quite a few different ones and of course, have always found it hard to find the right colour that I like. They usually always turn out too dark on my hair or not enough staying power and they fade quite quickly. 

Recently I tried Clairol Nice n Easy colouring number 6 Light Brown and really liked it. The colour is really close to what I ideally want and it applies well. I tried out the foaming one recently and I really like that it is mess free.

You mix the tint and developer and with a pump bottle, you squeeze the bottle to get the product out. Using the gloves the idea of the foam is that it is easy to use and mess free, which it really is. The foam can be spread all over the head as if you are shampooing it, I did section off my hair and do it that way first before spreading it all over my head. Once the time was up, it rinsed out really well and let it dry naturally. I love the whole process, simple, easy and the colour turned out the way I wanted it to.
The result I got - picture taken two days after I coloured it!
Recently, I came across Celebrity Colourist and Nice’n Easy Colour Expert Belinda Jeffery's top tips for perfect hair colour:

Shade - When looking for a shade, always choose close to your natural base colour, and only ever 2 shades lighter or darker.

Skin tone - Your complexion is the key to making the right colour choice. If you have an ivory or creamy coloured skin, you can be as adventurous as you like. However, if you have a pale pink-toned or ruby complexion choose neutrals such as ash blonde, ash brown or dark brown.

Prep - Before applying Nice’n Easy colour, use some papaw or gel around your hairline to prevent
staining on the skin and that ‘just coloured’ look.

Roots- When touching up roots, always begin at the nape of the neck and work your way up to the front and hairline. Nice’ n Easy Root Touch Up is great for this.

Post - dye care - A must use product is the Clairol Nice’n Easy Colour Seal Gloss Treatment. The conditioning treatment comes in the pack, and leaves hair soft and shiny – plus it seals the hair shaft and locks in colour.

Ease of Use - If you find you need more control when applying the colour, try using Nice’n Easy Colour Blend

Foam – the texture of the foam makes it easier to apply as the non-drip formula prevents unwanted colour movement.

I was overall pleased with the Clairol Nice n Easy and would recommend it to anyone that wants to give a home colour, a try. The Clairol Nice n Easy Colour Blend Foam is $17.99rrp, available at supermarkets with 37 shades to choose from.
