VERY DISAPPOINTING

I trialled the Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème in Medium Blonde 8. I didn't really like the picture of the hair colour on the box as it seemed to be a strawberry blonde shade more than a medium blonde. I have naturally greying medium brown hair underneath my dyed honey blonde hair. I did really love the application brush, though it is slightly hard to hold due to the small size.. I left it on for 15 min first time with no result. Then 30 min for the second attempt, Rinsed with water but it still didn't cover any grey or make any difference at all except for a strawberry blonde look that didn't blend in whatsoever with my blonde hair. Considering the box states to leave in for 10 min then rinse, i would seriously doubt any change to anyone's hair. Also , I must say, for the price i would expect more than a tiny little Tube and Activator bottle. Very disappointed! Sorry Guys but i just can't recommend this product.

Hair refreshed

Not having tried this product before, I was keen to experiment and had a back up hair dye on hand just in case. Clairol Nice n Easy is my go to. The product instructions were clear and the product itself easy to apply. My regrown covered easily as per the instructions and the colour match was good however, I prefer the idea of a full hair colour and conditioning treatment to refresh all over as I noticed my ends were brassier than the roots when dried. Would be great for a choppy short hair style or thin hair but not for long thicker hair as the finished texture is not consistent.

Easy to use, blends well.

I had the pleasure of testing the Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème in Medium Blonde. I found the entire thing to be easy to use and enough product for my hair. I wanted to try this, as I usually use Clairol Nice N Easy hair dye to do my hair normally. I like that it didn't just bleach my roots, but had a good toner to keep the colour more natural. There was more product than I expected, so I was able to focus on my roots and blending the roots into my hair quickly at the end, using the left over product. It blended well into my hair and I am happy with the outcome. I would use it again. The brush was pretty good, it's small but does the job for roots and used my gloved hands to rub the rest of the product into the hair bear my roots.

Works for Me

I will give this product a 5 star rating. I have a lot of grey on my hairline around my face which looks terrible and makes me look older. Using this product was easy, non messy, gave me great coverage and was effective on my grey roots. It gave me a salon finish look and left my hair feeling soft and conditioned. My hair grows fast therefore I need to do root touch ups quite often and the Clairol Root Touch Up is perfect for me. I will definitely keep this handy product in my bathroom cupboard. I am happy and satisfied as it works for me.

Easy to use

A 4 star for compact packing and ease of use. This is a handy, easy to handle little "gadget" to help me when I am too busy and unable to find time to go to the salon when my greys starts peeking. The application was smooth with the "comb" and after washing, my hair did not feel dry although there was no separate packet of conditioner inside the box. I loved that they covered most of my grey ,am sure it will cover better next time with more practice. Affordable, good value and i would recommend anyone to go stock up a few boxes.

Fabulous

Thank you for allowing me to trial Clairol root touch-up light brown 6. I loved that it came with a brush and a bowl. I have thin shoulder length hair so this was the perfect amount and coverage for me. I also love the idea of having that little emergency life saver stored in my bathroom ready and waiting. The product was easy to use and the results were great, it covered my pesky greys and the colour blended well with my hair tone and colour. I would highly recommend any lady to store one at home and use for that in between hair salon appointment.

Quick Fix

I found the Clairol Root Touch Up a quick fix for when you just need to get that fresh colour look. It coloured the greys for a short while, just didn’t seem to last long enough. Would use it when I am short for time. Fragrance was subtle and not overpowering. After feel of my hair was nice and very easy to manage and style. Easy to follow instructions. No itchy scalp while waiting for the time to lapse which was very good. Price is very reasonable for what it is meant to do, which is root colour touch up.

Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème

Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème was so quick and easy to use. I managed to cover my greys and it lasted a while as well. The instructions were easy to follow and the colour stayed on without fading easily. The bit that is always hard to keep the greays away from is them short hair along the temples. I would definitely be buying this product later for the times between colours. The smell was subtle, the brush makes it easy to apply, focusing mainly on the front where greys are visible. It did a pretty good job covering my greys.

Will get you through to next salon visit

Packaging comes with all you need to apply the product. I have long, thick, porous hair and would need at least 2 boxes for proper coverage. The product mixed easily and was quite simple to apply. Upon checking the uptake of product to my hair, I found I needed to leave it on much longer than stated on the instructions, however this is typical of all box dyes for me. Once rinsed and dried, I still found the odd grey hair so grey coverage was not 100% for me. I think this product is acceptable if you're in dire need but cannot get to the salon as it will get you through.

Clairol - You did it again!

As a cream this is a great touch in between colours - especially if you don't have time to get to a salon and might have somewhere special to attend. Ready made kit - comes with a mixing bowl and the colour bottles. I used all of it the first time, and ended up wasting a lot, because I didn't realize that I could mix only as much as needed. The instructions are easy to follow. Not very messy and if you have the heads up then only mix what you need and make the packet last longer. I only have one colour in my hair and it was perfect just to cover my front roots and sides. I would definitely recommend the product and purchase it again myself.

Not bad

I was lucky enough to receive this product as a trial. This hair dye is quite useful for root touch-ups but didn't blend well. My hair is dark brown which i asked for but much lighter than my actual colour. My hair is very thick so probably would've been better with 2 packs The brush applicator it comes with makes applying the dye very easy. Whenever I need to retouch also it is is gentle and not damaging to my hair. Overall I would say for someone with short hair this product would be fine but longer thicker hair not so good.

Clairol Root Touch Up

I followed the instructions which were easy. I found the brush awkward to use as it was curved and it didn’t pick up much product. It didn’t take too long to apply as my greys aren’t too bad (yet) so I had more than enough product. I left it on for 15 minutes instead of 10 minutes just to make sure that it covered. The colour I used was dark brown which was perfect for my hair colour. I noticed that I missed a few hairs but I think that might be due to the difficulty I had with the brush. The box said that it would last 3 weeks but I found that my regrowth started to show after 2 weeks which is what usually happens when I colour my roots. Overall it’s not a bad product but I think I’ll stick to my regular product.

Beautiful colour and outcome

I only ever use Clairol Nice and Easy for home colouring - I may try something else once in a while, but I always come back to Clairol. This product was a good match, the instructions were easy to follow and it was easy to use. The only issue is that there is not nearly enough to cover the roots over my whole head so I concentrated on the front. Once rinsed out, conditioned and dried, my hair was soft and manageable. It's a great product - but I would need two of these to cover the roots over my whole head.

Fast and efficient

I used Clairol Root Touch Up as part of the trial team. I was happy to receive the product but surprised by how small the cream and lotion were. However, the result did not disappoint at all. This product is used to touch up the roots, not to be used on the whole head of hair, so the size of the cream and lotion is perfect for me. The mixing took no time and applying only took me 2 minutes, the brush that came in the box made applying to hair roots very easy, so fast and efficient and no mess. I don't need to color the whole head of hair, this touch-up product is brilliant, and suits my need exactly. Only need to wait for 10 minutes for the color to penetrate the roots, the result was very natural and blended in with the rest of my hair color nicely. I certainly will recommend this product to anyone who just needs a touch-up.

Blend blend blend

I love the idea of a touch up between trips to the hairdresser especially when they are so simple to use. I always find it’s my roots that need blending more than anything as my greys are extremely stubborn. The colour I chose was a bit light for my overall colour but the idea of it is great. I do tend to leave a colour on for slightly longer than recommended as to help with the greys blending in but overall happy with the results. Will recommend and reuse when in a bind, but if you need more than just a touch up between visits I’d probably recommend a second box or a full covers colour

Not a bad product - but not for me

It does cover greys, but I found it dried out my hair. Therefore, it didn’t blend seamlessly with the rest of my hair. I have black hair, very glossy. But after applying this to the roots, the area of application was less glossy than the rest of my hair. It was quick to use and not too messy. I don’t have huge areas of grey to cover so I found the amount in the box to be more than adequate, even with thick hair. I’m just less likely to purchase this as it leaves the roots a little dull. I can’t comment on price as I received this as a product to trial. I’d recommend this to others but not someone with very shiny/glossy hair.

Great coverage

I was very excited to try this product. It was great as a touch up in between getting hair coloured. The coverage was very good. It even managed to cover all those tough greys and the colour blended in really well with existing colour. There was very little smell while using especially compared to normal hair dyes. The application was good with easy to follow instructions. I chose to leave the product in bit longer as 10 min didn't seem long enough. Not sure that the coverage would be as good if gone with there recommended time. I would definitely recommend it to others as an easy to use in between colour touch up

Great idea

Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème is a great idea for when you just want to dye the regrowth a similar colour to your hair. It comes in a range of shades to suit most. It is easy to use with a small brush for the dye. The process only takes a few minutes with only 10 to 15 minutes waiting before rinsing. It blended in well with my previous hair dye colour (a medium brown). A regular dye would also work but is not as quick and easy. Also I worry about colouring the lengths of my hair too often which makes this product a great solution.

My Secret Weapon

I greatly enjoyed trialling out the Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème because it helped to hide my grey hairs of wisdom and made my colour look natural, which is important to me. The process is simple and quick and hair colour perfection can be achieved in less than 20 minutes, which is great if you are time poor and in a hurry to complete this task. The instructions helped lead me along the journey successfully with easy step by step instructions to follow. The colour is easy to mix and then apply with a brush that is included in the box, that is most helpful. I applied the colour to my part line and across my root areas and blended it evenly into my hair. The coverage was good and I had enough colour to get the job done perfectly. I waited for the colour to develop and there was a bit of a scent but nothing but the usual hair colour smell. Once I rinsed my hair and blow-dried it to get the colour looking its best, I was very happy with the colour and the coverage. The grey hairs were gone and my hair looked naturally beautiful again, which is wonderful. I was impressed that I actually did this myself with ease and my hair was in good condition and had a nice shine to it which made me feel even better. I am confident using this product, as it’s safe to use and I strongly recommend it to touch up your hair colour in the comfort of your own home all by yourself. This will give your hair a new lease of life and is great to use for the in between full colour treatments and help my colour last longer, with some help from my secret weapon - Clairol Root Touch Up.

Great for an in between quick grey cover fix.

I used the product as a touch up on my part and temples which are my grey areas. It was easy to apply and the packaging was easy to use. The enclosed application brush was handy to use with a nice to hold handle. There was not alot of product, as it is just a touch up rather than a full colour. I left the product in for around 15 minutes, which is much faster than my usual colour, and it covered my greys well and blended in quite well with my usual dark colour. It didn’t smell to bad, and washed out quite quickly. The cost of the product is comparable with a full coverage product, but the faster application and development time is definitely a positive factor with this product.
