I've been using this for several years now to touch up grays and I like it so much that I tried the Clairol Perfect 10 (which was a huge disappointment, as you can see in my review). One box of Root Touch Up is about the same price as a box of the regular Nice N Easy hair color but you get about 1/4 the amount of product. So you pay more, but you get a much better, quicker formula and the option to mix colors if you decide to use 2 boxes, which I have to do in order to cover all my grays. I use one box of Medium Ash Brown and 1 box of Light Ash Brown, mixing everything together, and I seem to get the perfect shade for me.

Pros:
- Great job of covering grays, especially my stubborn white/clear roots, although I keep it in an extra 10-15 minutes.
- 10 minute application time (unless you have extra stubborn grays, in which case you might want to double the time, but then it's still less than half the time of doing your entire head with the regular formulas).
- Thicker paste-like formula than the regular Nice N Easy, so it is less runny and less likely to drip and make a mess.
- Since you're covering a smaller amount of hair with the stuff, the rinse time is much quicker than the regular Nice N Easy (which for me can take forever, it seems).
- I don't get any of the itchy reaction that I do to the regular Nice N Easy or to that horrible Natural Instints (I also reviewed).

Cons:
- Amount provided is probably less than half that you actually need, so it's not a great value; I have to use 2 boxes if I want to make sure I cover all my grays, which of course I do!
- The little brush and tiny plastic dish are not great, but if you have nothing else, I guess they will have to do. I use my own bowl and my own brush, but then again, I have to use 2 of these boxes, so I need a bigger bowl.

Awful!!! Why would I buy this when it is almost the same price as a full size, Tried this to just hit my roots that were showing gray. Didn't even cover for one week. I would be better of buying the full size of Revlon Color Silk and touching up with that for half the price. Does NOT cover grays at all. Not worth it!!!

So many negatives. First of all there is not enough product. I got through about 2/3 of my roots and ran out. That's ridiculous for about the same price as a full hair dye kit. The next issue is that it didn't come out medium brown, it was lighter than I would have expected and doesn't really match my hair. Last issue is that it didn't cover my gray. I would say it slightly masked some of the gray, but it was not good coverage. I would not use this again and do not recommend this product

Root Touch Up contains just enough product for me to color the roots around my face, which need to be colored more often than the rest of my hair. (I used number 8, Medium Blond.) I left the color on longer (25 minutes) because my gray is resistant. The brush works very well to get the color on all hair, and the plastic container is ideal for mixing the color cream and activator. I also use the brush to color the same area when I color my whole head with Clairol Nice 'n Easy Natural Medium Blond.

YIKES! 1st time EVER coloring my minimal grays...I've been resisting because I LIKE my natural hair color - medium brown with lots of natural blonde and red highlights from the sun. So I did loads of research before buying this. Used it on day old hair so it would "stick" better (as advised online), covered all grays thoroughly, left on for 20 minutes just to make sure it would take....it was easy to use but there wasn't a lot of product for my super thick hair. And it looked pretty natural at first (but a bit yellowish). I was surprised! I almost forgot about my recent foray into gray hair! And it lasted through 1 sulfate-free shampoo. 1 week later and my grays are shining again in their briefly forgotten glory...

Pretty decent product, usually when I buy a home dye kit it turns my hair orange or does nothing at all, this one actually turned my hair a dark blonde at the roots (I left it on for 25 mins after application). It probably could have done with another 10 mins to make it brighter but overall very good. Only two reasons for not giving it a 5 star are 1. Could do with a slightly bigger bottle and 2. I think the 10-15 mins guideline is a bit misleading. Other than that it's great!

I use this product between salon visits and it saves me time and money. I find there is more than enough solution to cover my gray hair on my crown and around hairline. I leave on for 25 minutes and I use it every couple of weeks until I can get to the colorists. good product

I followed the instructions and it did not cover my gray. I'm not sure if leaving it on longer would have made any difference but I'm not crazy about buying another box to find out.

Got this at walmart for $2! just recently dyed my hair brown but my roots are dirty blonde and come in quickly. Cant afford paying $50 every couple weeks, this is a lifesaver!!!! got the light chocolate brown color 6wn and it matched perfect!!! it is so easy to do and only took 10 mins to set! will be repurchasing. a true life saver!

I absolutely love this product! I love my natural hair colour, and refuse to dye it in fear of altering it at all. Unfortunately, at 34, I do have a few stray gray hairs starting to come in around my temples and bangs. I use this in 4R and it is an exact match for my natural shade. The only think I notice is that after a week or two I am in need of a touch up, which didn't happen last year (probably a few more grays than before, I assume.) So I think the next time I use this, I will take the advice of other reviewers and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Other than that, no complaints here! A fantastic product for a fantastic price!
