I've tried many products and was a little reluctant to try Nice N' Easy. I think I somehow thought it would be "hardcore", damaging, staining and too dark.  I was wrong! The color was a bit darker than comparable brands BUT it was consistent from root to ends. The color was natural medium brown which other brands left me a little brassy. The shade was nice and the color was actually LONG lasting. This suprised me. After around 4 weeks, the color has barely lifted from my grey.I'd give it a shot if you're looking for grey coverage that lasts.

***Quick View:*** This hair color looks great but fades very quickly. I spent a long time doing my roots only to see the color fade within a week and having to redo my roots in three weeks. I should have done them in two weeks but that's just crazy.

***About Clairol Nice'n Easy Hair Color (with Colorblend Technology)*** This hair color comes in the usual variety of shades with no funky or outrageous colors. It has the typical tube and plastic bottle applicator system and a tube of conditioner. Application is simple. Just squeeze the color out of the plastic bottle onto the hair, making sure to cover every piece you want to color. In my case, I wanted to color just the roots because I have highlights in my hair and don't want to pile color over color. My roots are lighter than my hair is now and there is some (gasp) grey so I wanted them to blend perfectly. After applying the color and waiting 25 minutes, I rinsed and applied the included conditioner. The color was perfect. There was not a hint of difference between my roots and the rest of my hair. I was very pleased with the look. But within a few days, I noticed a few pieces of hair on the top looked lighter. Not grey but not the color they should be. In a week, the color began to fade and some grey and lighter strands were clearly showing through. In a couple of weeks, I looked like I hadn't touched up my roots in ages. I was so disappointed because I hate to waste time doing my roots. It's messy and just plain boring. I had to redo my roots within three weeks with another brand of hair color. This is supposed to be a permanent color but it sure wasn't permanent on my hair. ***My Viewpoint*** Clairol Nice'n Easy Hair Color (with Colorblend Technology) is easy to apply and doesn't smell as awful as some hair colors. The shade was perfect for my hair and it blended amazingly well. But the color faded and was gone in under three weeks. That is unacceptable and I will not be using this hair color again. ***2 stars*.**

      Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Hair Color:

      The product produces a rich color. I used 4BG Dark Burgundy. If your hair is already dark brown, there isn't much difference in low light inside but you can definitely see the richness in color. Outside in the sunlight, it produces a rich burgundy color. I have gotten a lot of compliments about the color and the floral scent. There is a tube of Color Crème conditioner included that you leave on your hair for 2 minutes while showering the first week after coloring which provides the softness and scent. I just love this product. I would definitely recommend.

      It is very easy to use and the odor is not that bad, however am not a very high fan of how it colors some but not all of the strands of gray hair.

        Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Hair Color:

        I used this hair color to dye my hair light auburn to go for a more natural red than my usual go to color of bright red and I thought it went quite well. I did find that this new formula was a little more watery so it was slightly more prone to dripping so we had to be careful at the top of the head. I am writing this review over a month after applying the dye and I am still happy with my results, looks very natural, people tell me they are jealous I am a natural redhead, haha!

              IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!! Been using this product for years. Although it fades rather quickly, I loved the natural looking highlights and the overall natural appearance. But, now it is " New and Improved". The natural look and highlights no longer exist. The "Natural Medium Brown" is now fake black. My only hope is that is will fade as quickly as it did before "improvements"

              Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Hair Color:

              I've used the Clairol Nice'n Easy product for over 20 years and love the soft blonde look it provides me. I think for the price it is an excellent product BUT...I've searched the Clairol website (WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS - how could that be???)) in an effort to find the difference between the color I've used for a time, #10/87, Natural Ultra Light Blonde, and a recently-introduced new color, SB2, Ultra Light Cool Summer Blonde, titled "Sun Kissed." Has anyone tried this new color, SB2, and, if so, what do you think of it? Any help with this question would be appreciated.

              Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Hair Color:

              I have dishwater blonde hair and I wanted a rich reddish brown all over color. I didn't want anything too maroon or too fake red looking. I was super impressed with how well the color turned out. I actually used this product for a year and loved it. The color on the box came out exactly like it said it would. The color was true and didn't disappoint. The color was also so pretty for a box color. I seriously mean it when I say this product stayed in my hair longer than some salon processes that I have received. I received a lot of compliments on my hair color while using this product. This product also left my hair so soft and shiny. The smell was also tolerable too. It didn't smell too strong or like I had a chemical in my hair. The coverage is great especially for a novice like me that had no idea what to do at first. The formula didn't burn my scalp or skin either. I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting full coverage and true color.
