I am sure you remember a few months ago when I decided to color my hair auburn. You may also remember that I did a follow up post about how I am keeping up with the auburn shade using the CC+ Colorseal Conditioner. Well, as it does, my hair grew out leaving my natural color (and gray hairs) exposed at the roots. Today I am going to take you through the steps that I did to touch up my roots with the Clairol Nice ’n Easy Root Touch Up.
There are 21 shades available in the Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy line ranging from the lightest of blondes to the darkest of brunettes. The Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy covers grays and root re-growth in just 10 minutes and the color lasts up to 3 weeks. I am using the exact same shade as I used when I colored my hair to make sure it matched.
With every time you use hair-coloring products, you want to do both the allergy test and the strand test 48 hours ahead of time to make sure you don’t have a reaction to it and the color comes out as the shade you want. This does need to be done every time you color your hair, regardless of if you have used the product before because allergies can develop at any time.
One thing you want to do before getting started is part your hair where you normally do, because the color needs to be deposited there first. You may also want to wear a cape or a towel over your shoulders in case you have an accident and spill some of the mixture onto your clothes. It has happened to me, don’t be the one that thinks it won’t happen.
You are going to laugh at me that I am giving you a full tutorial on touching up your roots because this is as easy as 1,2, 3. Hence the name… Nice ‘n Easy. Here goes.
Root Touch Up Tutorial
1 Add the color cream into the bowl that is provided in the package.
2 Add the Activating Lotion into the bowl.
3 Use the brush provided in the box to stir the mixture and apply it to your roots. Concentrate the product first on the areas that are showing the most when your hair is styled and then work it into the rest of the roots.
Simple, right? The before and the after pictures below show a huge difference. The first picture showed my hair more two-toned. You can tell that my dark hair is peeking out of the part in my hair and that the color is fading back into my darker shade. On the after picture the color is seamless all the way from root to tip.
The fact that Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy comes in so many shades is amazing because it can easily extend the life of your hair color between at-home or salon hair colorings. I am a big fan of easy maintenance and this is definitely a quick process that gives weeks of results.
