      I follow the directions and have been using the foam product for years. It covers my gray and does an excellent job. I need to re-color in 6-8 weeks. My hair is very thick and I can get by on this schedule. I like the foam as it is easy to apply. The whole coloring process is messy but I find this product is the least messy.

      I used to pay $70 for a color job so this product is much more economical!

          As another reviewer has mentioned, the applicator is a cruel joke. It's ridiculously awkward to use. I wound up dropping it and getting dye on my bathroom wall, which I will now have to pull out some touch-up paint to cover. The dye has a painfully strong chemical smell, made my eyes burn, takes forever to apply, AND, as if all that weren't bad enough, "Light Ash Brown" has now turned my hair a deep shade of chocolate. On the plus side, the gray seems to have been covered. We'll see how long that lasts. Horrible stuff.

          Much harder to use than gels and lotions. Applicator is ridiculous.

            Comments about Clairol Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam, Dark Auburn 4R, 1 ea:

            I have been dying my hair myself for 5 years. I prefer this product over others specifically because of the foam. I disagree with another reviewer who says that it makes a mess. How much of a mess you make will depend on your patience and care; in this case, the foam requires that you have both, but it is worth it to me. I make no mess whatsoever when using this product. I usually prefer non-chemically brands, but because I have long hair (mid-back) I had to buy 2 boxes of all other dyes to get all of my hair dyed, and even then, the color was not consistant. It would look darker on top, lighter through the length, which is not what anyone wants.

            I think this product best suits shoulder or longer hair. It's pointless to use the foam for short hair because for short or bob-length hair, you can use anything and it will turn out pretty much the same and it may be easier for the user. The foam requires an extra 5-10 minutes of patience and care to use than the average home dye. It will allow you to apply it to MORE hair than other types of dyes, or to thicker hair, hence the usefulness for long hair.

            First, buy yourself disposable gloves if you prefer to have more control because the ones provided in the box are large and unweildly. Use the paper the gloves are wrapped in by spreading it out on the sink or area you are working over. This is your "tablecloth". Do not use this on a surface that may permanently stain (it's better to cover the area or use it near tiles, etc., which resist staining more). Again, take your time and you won't spill a drop. In my opinion, this is the case with any dye!

            Before applying, comb your hair thoroughly and then lightly dampen your hair (I just pat it with wet gloves--but NOT near the root). Now apply a good coat of petroleum jelly around all the places you don't want stained by the dye: your forehead, hairline, ears, neck, etc. Wherever you might accidently get a little on yourself. Do not apply the pretroleum jelly beyond the hairline.

            Then go ahead and start applying your mixed dye at the root so that your greys get covered first. Once your crown is done, then begin to spread it to the rest of the length by first applying the foam to your gloved hands, then patting it into your lenth of hair. Go slowly and take your time to avoid a mess. Turn your head upside down slowly and do the bottom hairline and hair. Use every last drop of foam and just keep piling it on until the whole head is soaked. When you are done, wrap your hair up with a clip and put a plastic shower cap on. Wash the gloves as you would normally wash your hands. With the gloves wet, lightly swipe over any stains you inadvertantly made on yourself, wetting the gloves over and over and wiping softly until all of the stain is gone. Keep the cap on 20-40 minutes depending on how stubborn your greys are; mine require 40 minutes. I would suggest 30 for most hair. Go about your business!

            Before rinsing, get in the shower and rub your hairline briefly back and forth vigourously with a gloved finger to smear the dye, about 1-2 minutes for the whole head. It seems counterintuitive, but my mother is a 30-year hairstylist and the dye rubbing on itself will actually prevent staining if you then wash it right away. Keep the gloves on at least for the first shampoo. Immediately shower and rinse hair thoroughly with water (not too hot), especially at the hairline. Wash once, add conditioner to whole head, rinse. Shampoo again and rub it on hairline, rinse. Apply a final coat of conditioner to the length while you finish showering. Rinse hair with lukewarm or cool water for a few minutes before leaving the shower. Use an old towel to wrap your hair as it will stain slightly. That's normal for all dyes (I have seen it for 30 years).

            This dye lasts me almost 2 months. My long hair looks amazing and shiny. All dyes smell bad for a day or two, so no big issue there for me and actually this one doesn't smell as bad as other brands if you rinse it properly. Don't wash your hair for 3 days after dying and it will last longer. This can be used just for the roots, but it's ideal for the whole head. I hope this helps the non-beauticians out there!

                I really disike this product. I bought this when my usual brand did not have my color. Golden medium brown. The first thing I noticed was that the smell was much stronger than other hair coloring products I have used. The foam is not as easy to distribute on the hair. Due to the fact that you have to put the foam in your gloved hand it gets all over everything including my shoulders and a lot on the face near the hairline. Very hard to control. Not recommended at all.
