Turning 30 is traumatic for a lot of women. I didn’t reallysweat it. I’ve always felt young at heart and, when I try, I can easily passfor a mid-to-late 20-something.
It was only this spring – a few months shy of my 33rdbirthday – that I started to feel old. One night as I was washing my face, Inoticed an albino hair in my bangs. I quickly plucked it to inspect it moreclosely.
It was only half white, so I convinced myself that this hair was afreak of nature that somehow got half bleached.
A few weeks later, I found a half dozen more “bleached”hairs and had an all-out panic attack. I mean, seriously – those suckers weremultiplying like Gremlins after a midnight snack. It wasn’t just that I was comingto terms with getting older – but going gray is a huge deal. Once you go gray,coloring your hair isn’t just for fun. It becomes a PITA part of your routine,for the rest of your life – like shaving. Between my job, this blog, being a momand a wife, my to-do list is already never-ending. So the thought of having onemore thing to do nearly sent me over the edge.
All I can say is thank God for Clairol. At the height of mygray hair freak out, Clairol contacted me and asked if I would be interested inreviewing their new Nice ‘N Easy Color Blend Foam. Um, yes please!
So this weekend while I was stuck in the house (thanks to HurricaneIrene), I cemented my Foambassador status by washing the gray outta my hair.
Nice ‘N Easy Color Blend Foam was supereasy to apply, took hardly any time at all, and the results are fabulous.
First of all, it’s perfect for busy women and moms, likemyself. All you have to do is pour thehair color into a bottle of activator, shake it up, squeeze the bottle todispense the foam and apply all over your hair. Unlike traditional hair color,there’s no drippy mess because the foam stays exactly where you put it. This firstpart of the process takes about 5 minutes.

Then you let the color process for25 minutes before rinsing out. Finally, you apply the ColorSeal ConditioningGloss and rinse again. And voila – shiny, dimensional color that also coversgrays for 8 weeks.
|So shiny! Though it looks almost exactly like my natural dark brown color, it’s much richer and warmer than usual.|

Clairol Nice ‘N Easy Color Blend Foam is available in 18shades and retails for $8.99-9.99 at drugstores and mass market retailers.
