I was weary of using this product because I was under the impression that it would hurt my scalp. I've bleached my hair before at the salon and my scalp was bleeding. But not with this product. My hair was already lightened to orange and I put this on for 20 minutes and it came out gold and orange. This box comes with a whole lot of product --enough to do 5 short haired people's hair.

I have naturally black hair

By Deb

Pros

  • Works On The Darkest Hair

Cons

  • Gives A Reddish Hue
  • Straightens Curly Hair

Best Uses

  • Extreme Lightening

Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Born Blonde Hair Color, Maxi, 1 ea:

I use this product because I am not fond of hair salons since they have become so very expensive, .I have a lot of grey roots and my hair is black naturally, so I chose to go blonde instead of cover the roots with dark color...this product is the best for dark hair, and since my hair is so dark, the first day or two it looks very strawberry blonde but it turns more blonde after a few days...I use it every other month or when I can't stand looking at my roots and grays anymore...

    It works

        • Serious Lightening

        Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Born Blonde Hair Color, Maxi, 1 ea:

        It definitely works. You want to lighten your hair from dark brown to blonde? It can do. Don't wash out too soon otherwise you'll have strawberry blonde hair. Have patience and you'll get there.

        I found I had to use the violet shampoo to remove the brassiness, but between the two I definitely have nice blonde hair. I am going to try the Ultra Blue next to see if the need for the violet shampoo is avoided.

        As other reviewers have said, try not to dye again previously dyed hair... it will definitely be worse the wear after another time or two.

        I've been to salons where my hair was worse off than using this stuff - now that's a waste. However, I have also been to salons (using Aveda products) where my hair was blonde and absolutely silky gorgeous forever - but I can't afford $140 every six weeks to do it.

        I've tried many different boxes of product to lighten my hair. Most can do a shade or two, but I was looking for seriously blond hair - and I found it here.

          I used this product in my brown/red hair, and I now have BRIGHT ORANGE strips mid way down my hair and I look like a clown! I cannot fix this until tomorrow and I have to buy the special "Oops color" remover to fix this. I'll NEVER use this product again. I have successfully dyed my hair several times and I was expecting blonde and got brown, red, orange, and blonde (Only on roots so just imagine how ridiculous that looks). So if you're planning on joining the circus tomorrow this is the dye for you!

            Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Born Blonde Hair Color, Maxi, 1 ea:

            I bought this when I had the whim to go from undyed, medium/light brown hair to white blonde and my preferred bleach was unavailable (the store that carries it was closed) My hair takes to bleach VERY easily, even when dyed- from brown to white in under 60 minutes.I applied the bleach on dry, two-day-dirty hair. I applied from the ends up to the roots as suggested in the packaging, massaging it around to make sure it was applied evenly. I left the bleach in for a full 90 minutes, if not more for lack of accurate starting time. I wrapped with a plastic bag and occasionally blasting darker spots with a hair dryer.Well, the hair dryer made my hair banana peel coloured. The rest of my hair is either bright pink (?) or yellow-orange. The main back underside of my hair is still brown. My roots are also brown.I will definitely never use this product again, especially for [$]. I have the simplest hair to bleach and it absolutely failed.On the plus side, my hair isn't ruined. The conditioner worked very well to keep my hair soft.

                this particular box I would swear was a left over relic from the '80ies -maybe even the '70ies! None of the items were as today's products Clairol furnishes. It was NOT so easily assembled or applied. This box with its supplies must have been in storage for ages -lost & forgotten hidden on the shelf or back corner. I resent the fact that I got stuck with it! The new product lines that Clairol offers I've never been disappointed with. I've always used Clairol, so recognized what appears to me as an old product trying to get rid of?!

                  This product will LIFT the color out of your hair. It is not an all in one. Your hair will need a seperate toner if you want a normal color that is not either conary yellow or copper orange! I would NEVER EVER use this product. I have been coloring my hair for years with Excellent results until I tried this product. This product is GROSSLY miisrepresent

                  Stuff is okay, if you just want to lift the color you have already out. But won't make you a blonde-blonde.

                  I have used this product numerous times and I always ended up with strawberry blonde hair (reddish-blonde shade). Most people liked it, but I hate red hair on me! LOL!

                  I had to leave it in for over 90 minutes. And still had some red to it. I don't suggest this for dark or black haircolors, like it says! I think it works better on light brown hair.

                  Is somewhat messy.
