Most Helpful Positive Review Love Perfect 10
I've used Perfect 10 hair color occasionally over the years, and I have always been happy with the results. (I don't have a lot of gray in my hair yet - if you do your results could be different.) My hair looks shiny after using it, it doesn't have that flat all-one-color look to it, and in my experience the color lasts a loooong time (I only shampoo twice a week - daily washing would likely cause it to fade sooner.)
I've used a chocolate brown that I loved in the past, but I'm not getting any younger, and have some wrinkles and a sprinkling of gray, so I decided not to quite as dark this time. (I used 6.5A - forgetting the shade name, but it was described as "lightest cool brown" I think.) I know from experience that my already medium brown hair usually comes out WAAAY darker than the box indicates, so that sounded about right. The A indicates ash, and the last few times I colored I used a warmer, golden color, and still had a reddish tint to my hair that I wanted to lose. Happily, this did the trick! It covered my bit of gray, blended my roots, got rid of the reddish tint, and left my hair looking way more vibrant. It's a little darker than I want, but I know from experience that it will fade a bit as I wash it. (And it isn't TOO dark - my middle school students noticed I'd gotten it cut, but no one noticed that I'd also colored. And trust me, they'd say something...)
Everyone's hair is different, but P10 is always a safe bet for me!
Most Helpful Critical Review What happened?
I've been using this product for years and have absolutely loved it. Today, when I tried to do my roots, I noticed the color was way off. Fortunately, I had an old box of Light Blonde, so I used that with the usual wonderful result. But look at the photo below. I was too afraid to use the new one that I'd opened first, for fear my hair would turn orange or red or god knows what. So Miss Clairol, when you changed the box, you changed the formula? Reading other reviews now, (after the fact) that seems to be the case. Please bring back the old formula or you will lose my business.

my hair is short and I either blow-dry it straight or (mostly) let it dry in its natural soft curls. I actually use this product to blend in the.little sparkles in my natural hair color. I don't color my hair otherwise. Just cover the (ok, gray) and light drag the brush across. Always looks just perfect!
Fail proof seemless blending hair color
Happy Customer from California
I love this product because it blends so perfectly, covers gray roots so well and is easy to use. I bought my own hair color brush from the beauty supply, brush color on both sides of root sections as I go, leave on for 20 minutes, and then mix a little gold color depositing shampoo in with my Kerastaste shampoo to give my color some tone. Not necessary though. (Learned all this by going to a Beverly Hills salon for years.) I can't imagine what I would do without it because I basically have stopped having to color my whole hair now- only do the roots. Remember to start at top of head and do back of head first, then do one side starting at middle part and then finish the other side. This way hair around face has color on less time and gives a nicer softness. My hair has never been damaged from it and grows a ton each month. There's zero odor when you shampoo your hair as well. Definitely buy several boxes- my hair is long and it can take three boxes to do my head when I've let it go a month. No need to leave longer than 20 min- it completely covers the gray. Once you get a better salon style application brush application it will go smoothly. I only use the brush that comes in the box to blend the color and accelerator in the little enclosed dish- which it works well for.
Easy root touch up
Teacher from Washington State
Since we have the stay home order in place, the root touch up product was a simple way to keep my colour intact. It's easy and only takes 10 minutes. A total recommend.
Grey no more from Medford NJ
Loved it. My husband even helped me. He was quite good and it was fun.
Been using it for years.... best home touch up!
Gia from Hudson Valley
First of all, you have to find you color sweet spot. I have dark brown hair and through trial and error, landed in golden medium brown (go a shade lighter if you are not sure it is easier to fix). Now don't stray! Also, I have very thick, very coarse hair. 15 minute does not cut it. I do 30. Once you find what your hair's dying color and time is, it is fool proof (I have been using this for 4+ years now in my premature shocking white hair right in the middle of my hairline). I strayed to other products and expensive salon, but keep coming back. Even the girl at the salon was impressed when I told her I cover my roots. Great stuff!!!
Shelly from Dallas, Texas
Did not work for me all , need it to colored 5 grays hair!!
Perfect root color!
Darlene from Santa Monica
I am so impressed with the result! I've been paying a fortune in Beverly Hills for root color. This product left my hair conditioned and perfect color. I tried it due to coronavirus but might use after salons open!
Easy to use and great price

Easy to apply and looks good.

this turned my hair brassy DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IT IS AWFUL
Hair falling out!
Marie from CO
Just a word of caution, I have just started using this product with in the last couple of months and have noticed hair loss around the hairline. I can't say for sure that this product is 100% responsible but this is the only thing that I have changed in my coloring routine. I'm going back to my original routine.
Good for when not able to go to a salon
Mo from Hawaii
I use for the few grey hairs I have. I'm still quite young, but I never dye my hair. The majority of my hair is virgin hair, aside from the grey hairs i dye. I don't need a full head hair dye, so I'm able to mix the amount I need and use the rest as I need.
Definitely buy again
Mpd from Boston
I will continue to use this product for touch ups
Pandemic beauty boost for trips to pharmacy & essentials
Not as gray now! from Los Angeles
It seems so silly to even use this considering what's going on in the world but it definitely gave me a big boost and a break from caretaking and pharmacy trips. I'll definitely go back to the amazing woman who expertly cuts and colors my hair when this is all over but it was easy to use and it lifted my spirits. Already recommended it to my sister. Since I had it shipped, it made it very easy for me and we owe a huge debt of gratitude for all delivery and postal workers. Stay safe everyone!
Great for in between appointments
Tina from SEATTLE, Washington
I'm 40 and I have natural black hair. My head is about 90% gray, so in between salon visits (every 6-8 weeks) I use this product to get the grays around my face and also where I part my hair. It works great for in between and covers very well on my white/gray hairs. Never had any issues with this and have been using for over 5 years now.
I use these between hair dresser appointments
the gardner from Santa Clara, CA
This is a super easy way to touch up your roots that will last a few weeks.
I have been using these between salon appts and they are great
With shelter in place going on this is the only way I can cover my gray
CLAIROL root touch up. Didn't cover all my grays this time
Ellie from Long Island, NY
I used to use this product when I couldn't make it to my hair salon. I haven't used this in years my hair looks and feels great. However it didn't cover all my greys
Great for Touch-ups!
Renee from New Jersey
As I stated, it is a great touch-up. It allows me an extra 2 weeks before I have to go back to the salon. I recommend this product.
Not worth it
Mary from Toronto, Canada
Better to get regular Nice&Easy. Works way better
Didn't cover grays
Abby from Columbus, OH
I have a small-moderate amount of grey and within a couple washes saw a good portion pop back up. It was easy to use though and in a pinch did a fine job.
I always buy this product
Kim from NY
I always buy this for my mom whenever I do her roots and it's perfect!
I would buy this product again and again and again!!!
kat from Heflin, Al
Love perfect 10 medium golden brown, 5G. The only thing I don't like about it is you are always out of stock. Please, please just some more in!!!!
MJ from Chicago
Worked great and easy to use. I have resistant gray, so I was impressed that home color did such a great job. And it hasn't faded.
I would buy this product again

ALN123 from NC
The brush is really stiff and you don't get much product for the price. It barely covered my roots, but made them less noticeable. I'd go with a regular box of color in the future as it's the same price and appears to work better for me.
Great Coverage and Color Match
Ali W from Indianapolis, IN
This is a very good root touch up system. I have dark brown to purple ombre hair and I used this to darken my roots. I was alarmed at the purple tint when I first start applying the color but as the color sat it turned to the right color. I have some very stubborn silver hair underneath some layers of my hair and it didn't quite penetrate that area. I do recommend for in between salon visits. Color matched well!
