First time using Clairol® Root Touch-Up - Black I got it free from Influenster for testing and reviewing purposes and so far, I must say this is a lifesaver! First of all, I love how practical and easy to use this is, just gotta dump the contents of the two small containers inside the box in a plastic tray that comes inside the box as well, stir it until well mixed in together and distribute with the brush on your roots and/or ends, that's it! Also, I don't know how they do it, but I'm absolutely amazed by how the shade I was sent matched my hair color perfectly! I have just started to dye my hair 2 years ago due to greys and this whole time I've been using Garnier Nutrisse, and even tho is not all that bad, I can't seem to get the right color because I always get a shade 2 or 3 times darker than my actual hair color is, also, I feel like the smell of chemicals on it is too strong compared to this Clairol dye, or at least it was to me, I could barely even smell it on my hair while putting it on. I'm changing to this Clairol Root Touch-up from now on for sure! It's a great, super quick to use and very efficient product so it gets 2 thumbs up from me! I would definitely encourage others to try this out, I 100% recommend it!

I'm actually really impressed with this! I have naturally dark hair, but I haven't had it dyed black in well over 2 years. It concealed the red in my hair beautifully. The best part was that it was completely even! I had to buy another box to do all of my hair but one application for a few mins did the trick. I went to the beach the day after dying it and it withstood the sun and salt water. I've washed it about 5 times since and it hasn't faded at all. I wish it came with conditioner to used afterward, but I think my hair is actually softer now? Idk but I'm in love! 

I got this free from Influenster for testing.

smell of the product isn't overbearing which is great. The instructions
are easy to follow which made it easy because because I've never used a
root touch up product like this before. The product didn't stain my
hands or clothes nor my sink which is a plus & the applicator was
easy to use. Using the brush was a lot easier than the applicator
bottles I've used in the past. The brush made it a lot easier to use.
All in all it worked; like seriously, & all my moms grays were
covered evenly. I like this omg.

I used the clariol root touch up kit that I recieved complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. At first I was scared because I have never used a root touch up product. Surprisingly this product was very easy to use and the color (black) matched perfectly to my hair. It blended in perfectly with the red I also had in my hair. I definitely recommend this product to anyone wanting to touch up their roots.

I received this product to review and I was happy with the product. Really love the brush as it made the process a lot easier to apply. I left it on for 15 minutes to cover some grays and it worked and covered them perfectly. I actually kept the little brush to use in future touch ups. I'll be buying this product in the future. #ShowYourRoots Clairol® Root Touch-Up - Black#influenster #CLAIROL

My first impression was that Wow this is a small amount of product, but I was wrong because when you start to apply it in the hair stains too much, it has no unbearable smell and the best thing is that it retires in 10 minutes, I am very grateful to receive this product eliminate Some gray hairs. I received this product free for testing purposes #contest #showyourroots #clairol #sponsored Clairol Nice 'n Easy Root Touch-Up

Before my mom started embracing her gray hairs, an used to use this products and she says nothing but good things. I like this product specifically on her because after she would dye it you could tell her hair was a totally different color. It went her black every dye, colored out all the grays and other colors, and it looked absolutely stunning
