Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’

 Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ // Belle Belle Beauty

Well, you can say I am hooked. After years of being a hair color virgin, I now am sold on using color to change things up in the hair department. Not to mention, those pesky grey hairs were just all too visible now that I have hit the big 3-4. So, when I had a chance to try the revamped Clairol Professional “Classic Collection”, I jumped.

The new formula has the addition of SOY4PLEX, an ingredient that keeps your hair looking healthy. There are 16 shades, and I chose 5GN, a light sun-kissed brown. I guess I wanted one last run at lighter hair before we get into the fall months.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the process. I was a little intimidated by doing at-home hair color as such a novice. But once I got going, it was fairly easy. I made four sections of hair and used a ketchup dispenser to apply the color to my strands. I didn’t have a brush, so I used my fingers (wearing vinyl gloves) and worked the shade from root to tip in smaller parts of each of the four sections.

What I was most impressed by was how shiny my hair came out. It was wildly conditioned. But still had that colored hair texture that holds curl so well. The shade turned out to be subtly sun-kissed. Even though it was a single shade, it didn’t look one dimensional – I got lots of depth (all on my own!). Stay tuned on the blog for the full look next Monday!

    Hello, I was wondering if Clairol which I love and have used your products for years, makes a gray hair color or light silver. Thank you for the help and also if it is soy based it would be great!

      Hi Anna! I got great grey coverage with this color. While it isn’t soy based, it does contain SOY4PLEX to help with shine. Let me know if you give it a try!
