HOW TO USE
- Put on the gloves provided. Unscrew the cap from the Color Activating Crème.
- Open the Color Formula bottle (1). Pour the entire contents into the Color Activating Crème (2).
- Carefully replace the cap of the Color Activating Crème and shake well until the color is totally blended and the mixture thickens. Immediately remove the tip of the Color Activating Crème.
- Apply the color to your hair immediately, using the method below that works best for your hair.
EASY APPLICATION (FULL HEAD)
FULL HEAD: Ideal for first-time colorers! Use the FULL HEAD method if you are coloring your hair for the first time, or if there is no color remaining from a previous application.
Apply color. Part your hair into small, even sections using the applicator nozzle. Apply color first to your roots and then immediately through the length of your hair.
Work through hair and pile hair loosely on top of head. If any color gets on your skin, wipe it off with a damp tissue. PLEASE NOTE: Never reseal bottle, as once mixed, it could burst.
Time it. Once you have applied all of the color, leave on for 15 minutes (or the time indicated by your strand test). Throw leftover mixture away.
Rinse your hair thoroughly until water runs clear.
Condition. Apply the Clairol 2-Minute Moisture-Rich Conditioner, leave on for 2 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Rinse and style as usual.
RE-TOUCH APPLICATION (FOR ROOT REGROWTH)
Use the RE-TOUCH APPLICATION if your hair retains a lot of color from a previous application and you need to cover root regrowth.
Apply color. Part your hair down the middle and apply the color mixture to your roots. Use the applicator nozzle to separate your hair into sections and continue applying color to your roots only. Save the remainder of the color to use for the rest of your hair.
Time It. Leave the color in for 10 minutes (or 5 minutes less than the time indicated by your strand test). Then gently work the remaining color through the rest of your hair and leave to develop for an additional 5 minutes.
Rinse & condition. Rinse your hair thoroughly until water runs clear. Apply the Clairol 2-Minute Moisture-Rich Conditioner, leave on for 2 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Tips: Saturate all of your hair with color for optimal results. If your hair is thick or longer than shoulder length, you may need an extra box of Nice n Easy Non-Permanent. When coloring gray hair, start where your hair is grayest. Do not worry if the color of the mixture on your hair looks different from your desired color. If any color gets onto your skin, wipe it off immediately with a damp towel.
To maintain your beautiful new color, we recommend that you re-apply Nice n Easy Non-Permanent every 4 to 6 weeks.

Apply to dry hair free of styling product build-up. Do not shampoo your hair immediately before coloring. Your scalp has natural oils that help protect it during coloring.
