I’ve recently teamed up with Clairol Perfect 10 – to help spread the word on an exciting opportunity happening this week. I can’t say what it is yet – but trust me – you won’t want to miss it! (Yiippeeee) So, make sure to LIKE the Clairol Facebook page to get all the details as soon as they’re revealed! And, stay tuned to happiface.com for a video I did with Clairol, which I will be uploading later this week :)
I was also asked to try Perfect 10 and give my thoughts on it. However, since I don’t colour my hair (I’m trying to hold off as long as I can…however, it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to wait much longer – I can see new grey hairs everyday…two new ones, just this morning – Yikes!) So, I decided to help colour my friend’s hair and tell you all about our experience. Fun!
Perfect 10 by Nice ‘n Easy (approx. SRP $15.99) is a permanent colour crème that gives hair salon-inspired, high-speed, glossy colour in just ten minutes. And, 100 per cent long-lasting grey coverage – that lasts for up to six weeks!
I thought my friend Stephanie would be perfect for this because she’s never tried at-home hair colour before – well…maybe once when she was 17 – but her hair turned purple and she got dye all over her face…so it doesn’t really count ;)
Her current hair colour (which she usually does in-salon every three months) was starting to fade – so she was looking to freshen up her colour, touch-up her roots and cover her two grey hairs (see below – stop it).
CHOOSE THE COLOUR
Since Steph’s hair was already really dark – we decided to go with Jet Black. For best results – it’s always best to choose a shade that is one to two shades lighter or darker than your current hair colour.
TAKE EVERYTHING OUT OF THE BOX, READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS AND DON’T FORGET TO DO THE PATCH (ALLERGY) TEST
APPLY THE COLOUR
To prevent staining your skin – apply a little bit of conditioner (not petroleum jelly) on the skin all along the hairline and around the ears.
Put on the gloves (provided in the box) and squeeze tube #1 (High Gloss Colour Crème) into bottle #2 (Colour Activating Crème). Put the cap back on bottle #2 and shake well – for approx. 20 seconds.
Then remove the mixing cap and replace it with the PerfectColor Comb – or if you’re just doing a quick root touch-up you can use the applicator tip (whichever you prefer).
We used the PerfectColor Comb. It was so easy to use – we literally just “combed” the dye through her hair. We started at the front around the hairline – then finished with the back. And, anytime we got dye on the forehead or ears (which surprisingly didn’t happen often – huge bonus!) we had a warm damp towel ready to wipe it off immediately.
And another thing that was surprising to the both of us was the pleasant smell of the product – it had a very little chemical smell, which you could barely smell during the application process.
Once we finished applying the colour – we put her hair up in a clip and left the dye on for 10 minutes (not 12, not 14 – 10 minutes, that’s all the time you need). We literally only had time for a quick cookie (I made my famous Toblerone Shortbread cookies the night before – Yum!) before we had to go rinse.
Perfect 10’s unique PerfectColor Comb has 14 tines to provide maximum colour distribution–five at the tip of each nozzle, five half-way down each nozzle and four at the bottom between the nozzles.
P&G Beauty’s perfumers created a custom fragrance with a floral bouquet of violet and rose, making the hair-colouring experience more enjoyable.
RINSE & CONDITION
When it comes time for rinsing your hair – you’re going to want to rinse it thoroughly until the water runs clear. You don’t have to shampoo – but if you want to, you totally can.
Then gently massage a quarter-size amount of the ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss through your hair (we might have used a little bit more than a quarter-size – just cause it smelled sooo good!). Leave on for 2 minutes – then rinse off and blow dry (or air dry if you prefer).
And, Wow! The colour was outstanding – it looked as though Steph walked out of a salon. And, not to mention – her hair was incredibly shiny. Steph said she was amazed at the results and is totally converted! And, with all the money she’s going to save by not going to the salon – she’ll buy a pair of shoes! ;)
Clairol Perfect 10 really does deliver high-speed, glossy colour in just 10 minutes. I would absolutely recommend this hair colour – it’s a Definite-Must Try!
