Clairol Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT PRODUCTS DOES CLAIROL
Clairol makes haircolor products. Choose from Semi-Permanent (lasts
through 8-12 shampoos), Demi-Permanent (lasts through 28 shampoos), Permanent
(lasts until your hair grows out or you recolor) or Highlighting & Blonding
to help you become colorwonderful ?.
SHOULD INDIVIDUALS WITH NATURAL,
UNCOLORED HAIR USE DIFFERENT HAIRCOLOR PRODUCTS THAN THOSE WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY
COLORED THEIR HAIR?
It depends on the desired result. If you are coloring
your hair for the first time and only want to enhance your natural color, try a
Demi-Permanent (lasts through 28 shampoos) product close to your natural
haircolor. If you want to go lighter, you need to select a Permanent (lasts
until your hair grows out or you recolor) haircolor, then refer to the insert
that comes inside your box of Clairol haircolor and follow the instructions for
first time application.
SHOULD PEOPLE WHO WANT TO COVER GRAY HAIR USE
DIFFERENT COLORING PRODUCTS THAN THOSE WHO DON'T NEED COVERAGE?
haircolor products will blend or cover gray hair to some degree. If you have a
small percentage of gray (not very visible), use a Semi-Permanent (lasts through
8-12 shampoos) product, such as Loving Care. If you have a higher percentage of
gray hair (up to 50%), use a Demi-Permanent (lasts through 28 shampoos) product
such as Natural Instincts, which will blend away gray hair.
On the other
hand, if you have a lot of gray and want to cover it completely, use a Permanent
(lasts until your hair grows out or you recolor) product. If you have 50% or
more gray, use Nice 'n Easy Gray Solution.
HOW CAN I TEST-RUN A COLOR BEFORE
COMMITTING TO COLORING MY ENTIRE HEAD OF HAIR?
Strand test is a simple method
for you to test haircolor on a portion of your hair before doing the entire
application. (The instructions are in your haircolor box.) It's an important
step because it's the only way to see exactly how the shade you selected works
with your starting haircolor to achieve the resulting color. A strand test will
also help you determine the exact timing you'll need to color your whole
