I haven't dyed my hair since the summer of last year, so I was pretty excited to be able to try out the newest hair dye out there - Nice 'n Easy Foam. The website says that it's a no drip formula, mess free and has an easy application. Along with saturating each strand of your hair completely. I personally found none of that to be true. As I'm sure you've seen on the commercials - it appears to come out like a foam but instead came out runny, watery and very messy. I couldn't tell if it was actually getting into my hair and I kept having to re shake the bottle to keep it mixed. This "drip-free" formula got over everything and stains quickly. Most hair dyes, if they drip on the floor or countertop, can be quickly wiped away clean....not this stuff - it stains! It stained the floor, a spot on the countertop, and my head!! I was starting to panic while using the Nice ' n Easy Foam because I really didn't think it was covering at all. I was trying to go a shade lighter and I've seen how bad it can turn out if you don't get it all covered! So I decided to take the cap off and just start pouring the mixture into my hands - this worked much better and I was able to get my whole head covered. Once covered, it burned a bit - but went away quickly. I was scared to wash it out to see what I might find. But, was happy to see that the color did take - and covered completely. Of course, the conditioner that came with it makes my hair feel like silk, and they have my two packets of that - that's suppose to last for two weeks. Overall, I wouldn't recommend Nice 'n Easy Foam. It was nothing like it shows on the commercial. Although, I'm happy with the end result, using it was not pleasant at all!

I have been dying my hair for over twenty years. So eventhough I have never used a Nice 'N Easy product before I had little reservation about it because I have used many different products over the years. I received my free coupon from Nice 'N Easy and purchased the Light Auburn color. When I started to mix and then shake it look for like an orange color but, I know from years past of dying my hair it always goes on differently so I went for it. Immediately after applying my scalp felt as though it was on fire. I have NEVER had a problem with sensitivity to a product I tried to continue with application but the longer I left it on the worse it got. I had to wash it out, This was not a sting like you might experience if you have a scratch on your scalp. This was an all over burning sensation. My mother who has been a hairdresser for over forty years was wearing gloves while applying and her hand felt the same sensation and were she had gotten some product she was left with a red rash and she was wearing gloves. And the smell was unbearable it made anyone who was in the room eyes water. My experience was so awful it it were an option I would not even give it one star. That being said, I would never recommend this to anyone.

I have tried fantastic colour foams, with wonderful color payoff and overall great results, HOWEVER, this is definitely not one of those. This color was awful, streaky, and hard to apply. The products smelled the worst of any have ever used (including multiple color removers). I was so disappointed with the results, I e-mailed the company about it in the hopes that they would re-work the formula.

I have been using Nice'n Easy for almost 40 years but no more. I won't ever even use Clairol again. This was the worst stuff ever!!!!!!! The smell - there aren't enough words to describe. Even with fans I thought I would pass out. I can attest to the terrible drippy inconsistent foam. It didn't reach my roots but it did seem to do a good job of burning my scalp. I also have arthritic hands. I didn't realize how hard I would have to squeeze the bottle. Since the bottle has to be upright, I couldn't even use my feet on the floor. There is also less product than with regular nicen easy and since the bottle has to be upright to squeeze you really don't use all of it without taking the top off. Since there was less product, my hair would not pile on top of my head as usual. I got stains on my arms, shoulders and back. I was taking a trip and had to scrub like mad to lighten them. Leave yourself enough time to wash this out, get to the store and buy another product to do it over again. As I said, I have been coloring my hair for almost 40 years and this was the worst ever!!!! Do not buy this product.

This was the worst. The smell is over powering, it does drip (even though they say it doesn't so I now have stains on my counter and bath rug) and it washed out within 2 weeks. I won't use this again.

I was really excited to have a chance to try this product free, and I was hoping I would love it. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. For starters, this had to be the messiest formula I've ever used (and I've used a number of them). Advertising shows such a thick and luxurious looking foam, yet this was more soapy and runny than shown. Even with the gloves, I had foam running all over my wrists and dripping on the counter and floor. Second, it smelled terrible. I always expect a slight ammonia odor with any hair color, but this was so much stronger than I am used to. At one point it got so bad that I was convinced it was burning my hair. Even my husband (who never complains when I color my hair) requested that I stay out of the living room because the smell was so strong. So...after all that, I was really getting nervous about the color. I chose the Light Auburn which was closest to my current color. Upon application, the formula was a strange shade of carrot (actually closer to iodine). I waited the 25 minutes, then washed it out. My hair felt like wet straw at first, and again I was nervous that it may have burned. I did start to use the conditioner that came in the kit, but it also smelled terrible so I opted for my expensive hair masque instead which quickly softened and hydrated it back to normal. In all honesty, the only redeeming quality is the final color...I like it, and it's only a tad darker than the example on the box. I don't believe I'll be using this one again and will stick to their gel formula instead as I have always had good results with it.

wish this would foam better and work as well as original nice and easy color. doesn't work well on my stubborn grey

I loved the hair color but could only give it 2 stars because the smell was absolutely horrible! I had to wash my hair right away and again the next day because the smell was so disgusting. My husband (who also never complains about the smell) said he couldn't take it and asked me to stay away. It smelled like stale beer that had been fermenting in the sun - gross! This was the first time I tried Nice n Easy - I usually use Garnier but had a good coupon for this product so gave it a try. I would never use the foam again, but would be willing to try another Clairol product to get the same color. I also found the foam runny and it stained my skin heavily.

I went with Medium Brown #6. First off, I have to say the smell is horrible, my eyes watered and the whole bathroom smelled like ammonia. In order to pump out the foam you have to tilt the bottle and place foam directly in your hand. The product was a bit watery and I wondered if the foam actually had coloring capabilities since it looked like all the liquid was on the bottom. The product does drip?just ask the t-shirt I was wearing. The color is OK?nothing spectacular. Would I buy it again?I don't think so. I think I will stay with Revlon Colorsilk which is about $3.99 and never fails me'the Clairol Nice and Easy is $10.99, a huge price difference but you get nothing extra for the higher price.

Not a good dye to buy. I use this companies perfect 10 brand and love it. I got the coupon to try this out and am so glad I did not waste my money on it. The foam gets everywhere but on your hair. As other people have said, it burns your head, you have to scrub fiercly to get it off your scalp in the shower, otherwise it looks like you put permanent marker on your head. It didn't dye all my hair even though I thoroughly saturated my hair as it instructed. My boyfriend now takes joy in pointing out how half of my hair is lighter than the rest. Would not recommend this product to anyone

Ladies, it may seem easier, but I promise this foam is not worth the streaky results. I liken them to cat stripes. If you miss a spot or work too slowly or use a clip to section your hair you can get really patchy results. I'd stick with Nice N. Easy original and make sure you hair is well saturated by giving it a good comb-through at the end. Liquid and cream hair color is messier but delivers far more consistent results!

I thought this stuff was a messy drippy stinky mess! I don't understand why it's getting rave reviews everywhere. It actually had good gray/white coverage but it was so unpleasant to use I wouldn't buy it again. My first foam hair color experience was with John Frieda and it was wonderful! I love foam hair dye but not this one!

Convenient option Clairol Nice 'N Easy Color Blend Foam is a convenient option for clients seeking easy home hair coloring solutions with natural results. However, professional hairstylists might find that it lacks the versatility and long-lasting vibrancy associated with salon-grade products. The choice to use it depends on the client's needs and preferences.

I went with Medium Reddish Brown for a color. While the foam is seemingly easy to use, the main reason why I gave it 3 starts out of 4 is because it is advertised as being "drip free" and it's not. When you have the foam on your hands initially, even after shaking the bottle a lot, it's still drippy and because the solution seems to be thinner, I actually made more of a mess with this vs. a regular bottle. That being said though, the color looked really great and I would recommend the product in general to a friend.

I purchased the Med. Reddish Brown with a freeby coupon I received in the mail. I really liked the color however I only gave it a "3" star because it advertises that it's drip free and it isn't. You have to continue to shake the container vigerously after each pump into your hand to have it foam up. And if you don't do this it comes very watery and drips over everything. I was a real mess to get enough color on my hair, and have very short hair. The only way I would buy this again is if I received another freeby coupon.
