Nice N Easy Hair Color

Nice N Easy Hair Color products are made by Clairol, a company started by two Americans in the 1930's. They pioneered easy and affordable home hair coloring for the average woman. Their 'Miss Clairol' product introduced in the 1950's made home hair color accessible to many women for the first time. This one-step home hair color was an instant success. Today, Clairol has expanded their products to include permanent and semi-permanent colors, blonding kits, color glosses, highlighters and hair color for men. Clairol products have been used for years by loyal fans. Their current permanent color product for home use is sold under the brand name Nice N Easy Hair Color.

This permanent liquid hair color is great for trying a new shade or simply enhancing your current one. Color lasts up to 8 weeks and is available in 40 shades. The product gets rave reviews from users. Its' Color Blend Technology creates dimensional highlights and lowlights by layering rich tones. Every shade contains 3 or more tones so results rival those found in natural, uncolored hair. Each kit contains a precision applicator and a Colorseal conditioner packet to lock in color and shine. Normal process time for this Nice and Easy hair color is typically 25 minutes, but color resistant gray may need up to 45 minutes.

There's also a drip-free Nice and Easy foam formula. It comes in 23 beautiful shades and absorbs instantly to lock in color. Simply massage into dry hair for easy, one step, over-all color. When applying, shake the bottle just 3 times and hold it upright when squeezing foam onto palm, per instructions. This procedure ensures a thick foam is created.

The kit includes a special PerfectColor Comb bottle top accessory with 14 nozzles that dispense and distribute rich creamy color evenly for flawless results.

Virtual Hair Color

Choosing the best hair color is not easy. To navigate the maze of different products and shades, Clairol developed an online virtual hair color makeover tool.

After you answer a series of questions, the tool provides hair color comparison photos and identifies which products will produce the shade you want. The Clairol website is brimming with helpful hair color information and provides access to expert advice via chat, email and phone. Also, you might want to experiment first with one of these popular, semi permanent products before committing to a permanent color.

The first set of questions reviews your hair color history. What kind of treatments have you had and how often? What non-color chemical treatments have you had recently? What's your current hair condition and color? Next, personalize your assessment by either uploading a photo of yourself or choosing a stock model photo. Indicate how many shades lighter or darker you prefer. The online tool returns suggests several shades it considers the best choices for you based on your preferences, eye color and skin tone. You can preview a generated photo of any selected shade and get a list of Clairol products such as Nice N Easy Hair Color that will most likely produce the desired results.
