BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / October 15 2020

The product

At-home colour has a history of being damaging on hair, but thankfully modern innovations mean you can now achieve salon-quality colour at-home, without having to worry about damaging your hair.

Introducing: Clairol Nice'n Easy Repair, 18 shades of natural-looking at-home hair colour that’s gentle on the hair and scalp for lasting colour and soft, manageable lengths. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this repairing box dye to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Clairol Nice'n Easy Repair to a panel of women aged 35 and older who wanted natural-looking colour and a dye formula that would also help to condition and repair their hair.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Clairol Nice'n Easy Repair.

How it covered greys: Members loved how effectively the at-home colour covered their greys, with one reviewer even going so far as to say, “Great coverage. I also tried this on my mum as I wanted to test out the grey coverage. Both of us were very impressed.”

The easy application: Reviewers were impressed by how easy the box-dye was to apply compared to other at-home options they’d tried previously. 

How soft it made their hair: A number of our members pointed out how soft and manageable their hair was after dying itwith the at-home colour, making styling hair a breeze.

The verdict

“I was given Light Auburn 6R to try which l liked because it gave me some sift red highlights. It also managed to cover the majority of the grey hair l was easy to apply,and instructions were clear to understand. My hair was also left soft and manageable.l would recommend this product to anyone using it for extra highlights of color and for covering greys.”

“I used the Dark Mocha Brown which was perfect given I am unable to go to any salon in Victoria. My greys were thankfully covered with ease of application of this fabulous product. I love that it has the added repair and strengthening function as I was weary of the harm home colouring might do to my hair. My hair felt lucious and I loved how beautiful it looked after one application.”

“Great coverage even on greying hair. I used the 8A Medium Ash Blonde shade and although my result wasn't very blonde, it is a light brown shade. I was a yellowing blonde with a few greys prior. Easy to apply and gloves etc provided in the box. Doesn't take long to do and there was plenty of solution to use. I was surprised at how well the colour has taken. A brand you can trust that I've grown up with my mum using.”
