The product

When greys make an unwelcome appearance you want an instant fix – a magic wand if you will.

Now, whilst we don’t encourage practicing witchcraft in the name of maintaining beauty standards, we do happen to know of a fast-working at-home permanent hair colour that covers pesky greys fast.

Say hello to Clairol Nice'n Easy, the permanent hair colour with a blend of tones, highlights and grey coverage that keeps strands looking natural.

So, no it’s not magic, but according to the reviews it is good.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this grey coverage wizard to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Clairol Nice'n Easy to a panel of women aged 35 and older with greys or those who identify as having a faded hair colour.

The lowdown

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

The rich colour payoff: Our members were impressed with the saturation of colour they were able to achieve using an at-home dye kit, with many saying they would be happy to use the hair colour in between salon appointments.

How long the colour lasted: A number of reviewers pointed out that they experienced longer-lasting colour than other box dye products they’d used previously and they loved the fact that they didn’t have to refresh their colour as frequently.

No gross hair dye smell: Funnily enough, reviewers were shocked that the dye didn’t have a particularly pungent odour, saying the hair dye they’d used in the past did not provide the same experience, “I was pleased to find that this doesn’t have a strong, unpleasant smell that some other home hair dye kits have.”

The verdict

“This was really easy to use and the results are really long lasting which will have me coming back again for the covering of greys. After rinsing and drying my hair my appearance was definately more youthful and my daughter mentioned how much younger I looked. Great start! Then, I found that the effects lasted well into the 2-3 week period afterwards and this is the longest I've found a grey covering product to last ever.”

“I usually don’t use packet colour. However, I tried this one. I was pleasantly surprised. Easy to apply and plenty in the packet to cover my hair. After washing it out my hair was evenly coloured and a nice shine. Easy to apply and perfect for those in between salon colours.”

“I tested out the light chestnut brown (6RB) shade. I was keen to see how it would cover my grey hairs. I was pleased to find that this doesn’t have a strong, unpleasant smell that some other home hair dye kits have. My hair turned out well, shiny and grey hairs disappeared. The conditioner left my hair feeling lovely and soft. Overall, I was very happy with the result and I would buy this product and recommend it to others.”
