The product

If quarantine and the *chilling* closing and re-opening of hair salons across the globe has taught us anything, it’s that in times of crisis you better have a root-touch backup plan at the ready.

That’s where Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème comes in – it’s a handy at-home root touch-up hair colouring system that takes just 10 minutes to process, delivering salon-fresh colour, and a high-shine and uber-soft finish. The secret to the salon quality application is the ergonomically engineered brush, meaning no roots and no greys. Consider yourself sorted.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this root touch-up to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème to a panel of women aged 35 and over with grey roots, regrowth, and greys around the hairline.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème.

The quick-developing formula: Our members loved the fact that the touch up creme only took 10 minutes to process, meaning they didn’t have to dedicate a huge portion of their day to dyeing their hair.

How soft and shiny their hair looked: Reviewers loved that they were able to achieve salon-level shine at home with the touch-up creme, with many noting their hair had never felt softer after using the at-home kit.

The rich, saturated colour: Members were impressed with the consistency and quality of color they were able to achieve with an at-home root touch-up kit, with some reviewers adding it rivaled the results they saw at the salon.

The verdict

“I have been a Clairol Nice and Easy user for more years than I want to admit. I've tried other brands, even had my hair coloured professionally, but I always come back. Same wonderful colour, shine, and texture... my hair actually looks and feels better when I use it. It's easier to style, and holds the style longer. And the shine! Nothing else compares. Why would I spend over a hundred dollars for a root touch up in a salon when all I need is an hour of "me time" and this magic little box. This does what it says and more!”

“I normally dye my own hair a chestnut brown colour which takes well over an hour to do at home. I was very excited to trial Clairol Root Touch-up which takes just 10 minutes to develop. I was quite impressed with the results. Even though I had coloured only a fraction of what I normally would a lot quicker than usual my hair looked so much better than before. I would highly recommend Clairol Root Touch-up for in between full colours or if you are rushed before an event for a hair refresh.”

“This product came just in time for my regrowth. The instruction were very easy to follow and the product easy to mix and use. l did leave mine on for an extra 15 minutes as my regrowth was pretty bad to my surprise it did cover all of my greys. My hair felt very soft after l used this creme and l will be using this on a regular basis now.”
