I hate spending hundreds of dollars at the hair salon.

Clairol hair kits at Target go for $7.79 at regular price, but you have plenty of opportunities to save more. For example, from April 9 – 22, 2023, you’ll get a $5 Target Gift Card when you buy 3 select Clairol Hair Color products.

On top of the savings, using Clairol hair color is quick and easy. With all the color options, you can truly choose the shade that suits you best. Plus, it leaves my hair looking healthy and natural. No one ever knows I color my hair myself. So if I can pay less than $8 versus $200+ going to the salon, I’ll take that as a win any day.

If you’ve been waiting for a sign to try a new shade, this is it. Here’s why I buy Clairol hair color from Target and how you can save more on a new color for spring:


Use Clairol to boost your natural color, switch up your shade, or touch up your roots.

I have three Clairol go-to’s that make it easy to maintain salon-quality hair: Clairol Natural Instincts, Clairol Nice’n Easy, and Clairol Root Touch Up. The product I buy depends on what my needs are, and also what kind of mood I’m in. Sometimes I’m feeling bold and dangerous and want to try a completely new color. Other times, I’d rather play it safe and stay truer to my natural shade.

Whoever you are (and whatever your natural color is), Clairol makes it easy to express yourself with the color that makes you, you.

Clairol Natural Instincts

Clairol Natural Instincts Demi-Permanent Hair Color

Clairol Natural Instincts enhances your natural color and boosts shine for radiant, healthy-looking hair. It’s free of ammonia and added parabens that are harsh on hair. Instead, it’s made with ingredients like coconut and aloe vera. Natural Instincts is available in 38 shades (yes 38!) of blonde, brown, black, and red.


Clairol Nice’n Easy

If I’m looking for something new outside of my normal shade, I pick up a box of Clairol Nicen’ Easy. It literally comes in 50 different shades, so you have plenty of options to find your best color yet. This permanent hair color also contains a formula that blocks damage and reduces the risk of allergic reactions.


Clairol Root Touch-Up

Nice'n Easy Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Hair Color Kit in Light Auburn/ Reddish Brown

When my color’s still good but my roots are peeking through, Clairol Root Touch-Up is my perfect solution. In just ten minutes, those pesky roots at the top of my scalp disappear and blend perfectly with my existing shade. And just like that, I have salon-quality color for another three weeks.


For a limited time, buy 3 Clairol Hair Color products and get a $5 Target Gift Card.

If you’re thinking of switching your shade for spring, you won’t want to miss this deal. From April 9 – 22, Target is giving you a $5 gift card when you buy three eligible Clairol hair color products. Clairol products normally go for $7.79 a box, so three products would cost you $23.37. But with the gift card offer, you’d only pay $18.37 for three boxes.

And if you pay with your Target RedCard, you’ll save an extra 5% on your Clairol purchase, bringing your total down to just $17.45!


Clairol coupons are easy to find, so you should never shop without them.

Whenever you shop for Clairol hair color products, there’s almost always a coupon out there. Whether it’s a Target Circle deal, a digital coupon, or one you can print from home, these can help you save up to $3 per box on a normal day.

KCL collects the most up-to-date Clairol coupons from all over the place. A lot of these are MFR coupons, so you can use them almost anywhere you buy Clairol products (including Target).
