This $12.59 Beauty Product is Our Best Buy for Mums: You Literally Can’t Do Without It!

Your me, me, me days are long behind you once you have a child or three.

Hours spent at the salon flicking gossip mags and drinking bottomless kid-free lattes probably seems like a distant memory.

Getting to the hairdresser can be ‘mission impossible’ once you’re the mum of small people. Oh, and the price of keeping up a colour – yikes! Did someone say blow the family budget?

Relate? Well, we promise you’re not alone. 

Just guessing but you’ve perhaps also walked past a mirror recently and had a shocked double take. What the heck happened to your hair? It’s like you just woke up one day and your greys have gone from rare to everywhere. Or perhaps your roots have somehow ended up half way down the length of your locks.

The result? You’re not quite sure how you ended up here. But you know you don’t like it.

Well, stop lamenting you’ve fallen off the style wagon. This $12.59 product is a total game changer. You’re seriously going to thank us for telling you all about it. It’s our best beauty buy for mums – and now it’s your new secret weapon.

Enter the Nice’n Easy Root Touch Up Kit.

It’s the salon – in your home! But there’s no appointment required.

Nice’n Easy Root Touch Up is available in your local pharmacy or supermarket and retails for under $13. What we love, of course, is that this means it’s super easy to get your hands on.

It’s 100% grey coverage that lasts three whole weeks. 

Grey hair is one of the most obvious signs of ageing yet one of the easiest to overcome. Why not say adios to those pesky silvers? If you hate your greys (and heck, who doesn’t?!) you can bid them a firm farewell in less than 10 minutes. Even better, Nice’n Easy lasts three weeks meaning you’ve plenty of time to get on with the business of being you. Just with awesome hair.

Nice’n Easy can match to any existing hair colour. 

Available in ten shades from blonde through to black, there’s a Nice’n Easy Root Touch-Up that will work with every existing hair colour. If you’re not confident in choosing why not use the very clever Clairol My Shade app as a way of asking for expert advice.

It’s the number one selling touch up colour in the world!

Nice’n Easy Root Touch-Up is actually the best-selling product in the category for root maintenance. When it comes to choosing a product for your hair (I mean, let’s be honest, you want to get your hair right, given you have to wear it every single day) so you’d be nuts not to be guided by the women of the world. With Nice’n Easy Root Touch-Up you’re choosing every other mums’ trusted and favourite brand.

You don’t need to be afraid of colouring your hair yourself. 

It’s time to get over the myth that the only way to get a good hair colour is in a salon. Colouring your hair at home as simple as one, two, three. If you’re not confident you can always ask a friend to help but seriously, with Nice’n Easy, it’s a no-brainer.

(PS – I don’t want to be rude but you’re kind of desperate, right? I mean those roots are channelling some serious ‘101 Dalmatians’ vibes. And you won’t get to the salon until… forever! Let go of your assumptions on home hair colour. Trust us, you’ll never look back!)

mum central

Fact. When you look good you feel better.

Grey hair and unsightly regrowth can make you feel anything less than your most fabulous self. In truth, they can lower your confidence and make you feel pretty ‘meh’.

Being a mum is a job and a half, and grabbing those precious moments for yourself can be a real challenge. When life’s brimming to over-full, smart women find solutions. Take it from us, Nice’n Easy Root Touch-Up is your answer to every day hair happiness.

And, from woman to another, there’s a lot to be said about the power of good hair.

mum central

Nice’n Easy Root Touch Up is available in supermarkets and pharmacy nation-wide for just $12.59. With 100% grey coverage in just 10 minutes, it’s your go-to hair colour for home maintenance.

    This tired mummy needs some help in the hair department! I’ve just started noticing a few greys (eek) and have tried just plucking them out but this doesn’t help with my regrowth problem! I’ve just recently tried a spray root touch-up with disasterous results, the colour wasn’t anywhere close to my own and made my regrowth even more noticeable! Plus the product was messy to use and I ended up with more of it on my hands and face than my hair! I would love to find a reliable, easy to use touch-up product that makes my hair look like I’ve just been to the salon, with no greys in sight! I’d definitely put it through its paces and fingers crossed, share my happy results with other time-poor mums!

    Would be amazing for the in between times (which seem to extend each time I swear!!)

    I’m so time poor like so many other mums and going to the hairdresser just isn’t something that i can a) afford to do more than once a year, b) easily do between work and kids. I’m soooooo grey and constantly needing touch ups.

    People often tell me they like my colour, and I tell them it’s Nice & Easy!! I’ve been using it for years, but it would be great to be able to do a quick touch up every now and then instead of a full treatment to get rid of those nasty greys! 😉

    I have been looking for this exact product and didn’t know if its existence. Instead I’ve been re-dying my hair every few weeks which has been making it brittle and dry. Tending just to the roots is the perfect solution and I don’t know where these greys have sprung up from but I’m not liking them at all! So not ready to be grey 🙂

    I have been going to the salon every 4 weeks for root touchups now the kids are at school. It is very expensive and I have things I would rather spend my money on. However, in the past hair colours have not coveted all my very hairs and/or have not lasted as long as a salon colour. I am reluctant to try any more self colouring agents as it is a lot is effort for mostly disappointing result. Hopefully this product will change my mind and you will have a new loyal customer.

    I’d love to try the nice ‘n’ easy touch up shade of light chocolate brown, it’s such a warm & wonderful colour, I think I may even colour my whole hair that colour & add some highlights & lowlights to really make it pop!
    I want something new for my birthday this Saturday July 15th they say a change is as good as the holiday I’m now not having as a bday present, as my partner left it too late to book our tickets!
    Due to health reasons I no longer get out as often as I’d like and my hair dresser only cuts, never colours so it would be fantastic to touch up and cover those pesky greys that have cropped up around the front of my forehead framing my face.
    The other hair dressing salon in my local shopping centre wanted $230 to colour my hair that then was just past my face, now it’s down past my décolletage!

    The grey hairs are gradually creeping in and taking over and they are always so much more noticeable. While I’m not overly vain, the grey hairs are not something I enjoy and I would love to try out this product to help keep them at bay a bit longer.

  44. Avatar of FoodieK

    Keeping up with the greys is a constant battle, and constant salon visits are so expensive, but I feel so much happier when I see no stripes in the mirror! This looks quicker and easier than other products.

    Between work (night shift) and a energiser bunny 3yr old finding time or money is easier said than done…..I always thought I would grown old gracefully and not care about the dreaded greys….looks like I do care I do care and desperate to cover up

    As a busy working Mum, being able to touch up grey hairs at my convenience and knowing that the colouring will last at least 3 weeks is a real time and life saver.
