I usually cover my grays at home. Of course it is much less expensive than going to a salon, but these days new formulas make it fairly easy, too!
This year, Clairol Nice ‘n Easy is making this even easier for women who color at-home with a new formula. Nice ‘n Easy Color Blend Foam ($8.00 USD) offers women a breakthrough usage experience, alleviating many of the application burdens associated with at-home hair color while maintaining the same dimensional color result they know and love from Nice ‘n Easy. This new, easy-to-apply hair color formula begins as a liquid, then applies as a foam. And it puts dimensional hair color right at your fingertips
Like traditional colorants, the tint and developer come separately in liquid form, but they mix and combine easily in the custom-designed foamer bottle. To produce the foam, simply shake the mixture with the cap on. Then using the foamer top, squeeze the foam into your gloved hand. The unique foamer bottle helps ensure control and consistency of the foam throughout the coloring process. When you squeeze it from the bottle, it stays in your gloved hand without dripping. Then simply use your fingertips to work it into your hair for ultimate precision.
Color Blend Foam gives you six times more product volume versus a traditional liquid or crème colorant, offering effortless and complete coverage. With Color Blend Foam, it’s easy to cover every strand over your entire head. Once it is applied to your hair, your hair’s natural oils collapse the foam. The resulting liquid is drawn through the hairs, allowing the color to penetrate hair quickly and evenly from root to tip. Color Blend Foam will not begin to collapse until it’s applied to your hair.
I really liked using this formula. Once I combined the tint and developer, I shook it up, then squeezed the bottle and the foam appeared. I then applied it first to my scalp and then all over with my gloved hands. It was very fast and easy. I then wiped the excess away from my hairline and temples and it stayed in place for the 25 minutes it took to develop. After I rinsed it out and dried my hair, I was left with a rich color that entirely covered my grays!
You can purchase this fab hair color at a drugstore or mass market retailer near you. Enjoy!
