Keeping it Up With Clairol's Root Touch-Up by Nice 'n Easy

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Clairol Nice ’n Easy for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you've been following my blog, which I knooooow you have, you'll know that I've been doing a series of videos included in blog posts where I decided to change up my look with the help of Clairol Nice ’n Easy. First, I dyed it, then I let you all know how I was maintaining the color and now I’m letting you guys know my experience with touching up my roots with Clairol's Root Touch-Up by Nice 'n Easy.

I'll start with the main thing: I have never, ever touched up my roots. Usually when I dye my hair I let it grow out because I don't use drastic colors and it's never been something that's been pointed out so only dying my roots was a first! But I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how simple the process was and how my hair turned out. I matched the Nice ‘n Easy color that I previously used on my whole head with the corresponding Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy color. You can find the chart that matches colors with root touch-ups on the side of the Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy box.

The first step in the process was to pour both products simultaneously into the handy little tray that came in the package. Once everything was inside the tray I mixed it up and was ready to go. Of course because I've never done just my roots before I had to read the instructions to see exactly how I was supposed to do this because I have a ton of hair. Luckily, when you do a root touch up you're only supposed to dye the parts of your hair that will show the most and for me that's where I part my hair when it's loose. You will also want to cover the entire front as well as the back. This way I cover my 3 hairstyles: loose, ponytail and bun. I have to say that I was a little skeptical about the precision brush because I have really thick hair so I didn't think it was going to be able to penetrate past the very top layer of hair and get what was underneath that might show through if it's a different color. I was extremely surprised and really excited over the fact that it really went deep into my hair and I know that all the roots in the area that I wanted to get covered got covered.

When I was satisfied that I covered all the areas where my roots would show the most I only had to wait 10 minutes for it to do its magic. Once the timer went off I rinsed my hair until all the color was gone and conditioned my hair before getting to work on drying and straightening. Because the initial color that I was given to dye my hair was so close to my natural hair color I didn't notice any roots but once I did the touch up and I dried it my hair looked so different in a way that I loved. My hair looks a little darker now, which I love, and while I couldn't tell where my new growth was before the touch up, it looked really uniform and perfect once the roots were done. Overall I'm very satisfied with this whole process and now I won't be afraid of doing my roots whenever the time comes because I know that it doesn't entail my entire head of hair. The Clairol Root Touch-Up by Nice ‘n Easy will last up to 3 weeks and is specially-formulated to be used in between coloring so I can keep using it until I'm ready to change my color entirely. Plus it comes in 21 shades!

A few things to note: I used the gloves that came with the instructions pamphlet and made sure to use them not only while I was doing my roots but when I did the skin allergy test. It's always important to do that when you're coloring your hair, even if you've done it before, to avoid any possible irritation. I did this 48 hours before and did it in a discrete area just like they recommend.

I'm so happy with how everything turned out and I can really tell a difference in how I can make a color last by taking the time to use the right products when I wash it as well as touching up my roots instead of waiting for it to grow out. If you've got roots that need to be touched up I recommend checking out to find your perfect match.
