Spring is Here! Time to Freshen up...Your Hair!

Spring has finally arrived, conjuring up feelings to start fresh and new…the clocks spring forward, you start your spring cleaning, you get a new spring wardrobe…but what about your hair? I bet that could use some freshening up as well!


Clairol Nice ‘n Easy is shaking up the hair color experience with new Color Blend Foam, making it easier for women who color at-home.  Nice ‘n Easy Color Blend Foam offers a breakthrough experience, alleviating many of the application burdens associated with at-home hair color, while still maintaining the same dimensional color results Nice ‘n Easy is known for.

Marie’s Top Tips for At-Home Hair Coloring:

Prep your bathroom prior to coloring your hair by setting out old towels to protect surfaces.
When deciding on a hair color formula, it’s important to understand the different between a
permanent and demi-permanent hair color.
o Opt for a permanent hair color if you’re looking for a more dramatic change as that will
provide you with dimensional color and 100% gray coverage
o For a temporary change, go with a demi-permanent color that will enhance and boost
color and shine in addition to providing up to 50% gray coverage. Demi-permanent hair
colors typically rinse out in 28 washes
Pick a form of hair color – liquid, cream or foam – that you feel most comfortable with. Foam is
the newest form of hair color. I love Nice ‘n Easy’s Color Blend Foam which is super easy to apply
with your hands as its drip-free, mess-free and simply collapses into your hair. Cream and liquid
hair colors require the applicator bottle to help direct the application of the hair color.
When selecting a flattering shade, stay within two shades of your current hair color for best
For optimal results, do not wash your hair prior to coloring as its best to work with hair that was
washed the previous day so your scalp has some natural oils protecting it.
Keep your skin hair color-free by putting Vaseline around your hair line to keep it from running
into your skin.
To ensure hair color is evenly distributed – follow these simple steps:
o Part your hair into three, even sections
o Start by focusing on the roots and then work colorant through the rest of your hair
After your hair color has fully processed for the allotted amount of time, thoroughly rinse the
hair color out with warm water, use your fingertips to massage the roots and continue to rinse
hair until water runs clear.
Maintain healthy-looking, colored hair with a few easy steps:
o Use a shampoo and conditioner specially-formulated for color-treated hair that will
continually nourish and protect your hair
o Treat your hair to a weekly deep conditioner
o Use heat protection spray when heat styling
o Reduce exposure to the sun and chlorinated water
