Come Alive Rinses by Clairol are perfect examples of superior, modern temporary hair coloring. They make it quick, easy and inexpensive for you to give patrons beautiful, evenly gray hair ... without any of the problems that accompany the use of old-fashioned temporary rinses. And the timid patron does not shy away from temporary rinses because she knows they can easily be shampooed out.

It is easy and profitable to sell patrons on using Come Alive Rinses when they have their regular shampoo and set. One treatment shows them what a beautiful difference these new rinses make. One to two weeks of wearing a Come Alive Rinse between shampoos does more than words to prove that the color will not wear off until it is shampooed out.
