Like the other reviewer, I've been coloring my hair for a long time (approx. 15 years), and I've used most of the brands out there. I've never used a foam before as they're pretty new - LOVED it! It's so much easier to get an even distribution than it is with the traditional liquidy color mixes. No worries about having areas with more color concentration. Lots of little perks - the gloves are nicer than any I've had before, it's easier to mix (no "cover tip with gloved finger"), it doesn't smell as much. The color, for me, was exactly as I expected based on the colors on the box. I was VERY happy and will be using this exclusively from now on!

I have light golden blonde hair. For the past two years I have used L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference in shade 91/2NB lightest natural blonde and have been very satisfied. Up until two months ago, they changed their formula, and after I used it, I had significant breaking everywhere on my head, and considering I waited the same amount of time in between colorings (7 weeks),used the same color for the past 8 years and never had any breakage like this, I wasn't going to buy it again. I decided to try to John Frieda Precision Foam in color 9N Light Natural Blonde because it was near the exact color I was using before. I had never used foam before, but the application was easy, and even for my long hair I had more than enough left over. Of course all hair color is going to smell bad so no complaints with any of that stuff. The next day, the color was not what it looked like on the box at all. I understand that it doesn't always turn out the way you want it to, but this should have been closer. All of the gold was taken out of my hair, and turned into a lighter Ash blonde. I was not happy or satisfied and only after two washes, TWO WASHES, my gold tone was back. Permanent hair color? So it says on the box. Two weeks after the product application (I wash my hair every other day) I can see my Inch and a Half Roots! Seriously not worth the money and I will not be getting this again. On the bright side, if you want to spend 12.00+ for a temporary hair color slightly different go ahead and make your purchase with Frieda Foam.

Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Color Precision Foam Colour, 5N Brilliant Brunette Medium Natural Brown, 1 ea:

I like to color at home, so I look for products that will give me that "salon" look. This foam hair color does just that. It's very easy to use and the color is absolutely fabulous! Follow the directions to the tee and also go to their website for additional tips on how to use this product, I guarantee you won't be sorry. I never have any problems with the color fading, maybe because I use the John Frieda root awakening line of products as well??

This product smelled good, but it does not cover gray. I used it twice thinking I didn't leave it on long enough the first time. The second time I left it on 30 minutes, still didn't cover the gray at all. Worse, previously covered area was really off color dark.

    I have been coloring my hair for years and this is one of the best products as far as coverage of gray hair and natural looking color. Even my hair stylist asked who colored my hair. Love how the foam coats all my hair. So far it has lasted one month and counting!

    Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Color Precision Foam Colour, 5N Brilliant Brunette Medium Natural Brown, 1 ea:

    Although I rated it a 2 I bought it again to try it one more time. I liked that it's not messy, goes on quick, rinses easy, covers my gray BUT my only complaint is that it lacks dimension and tone -the color is flat. I have very dark brown hair and light Irish skin and want to lighten my hair color so that there's not such a drastic difference between my dark hair and light skin. Also, now that I'm 51 the own dark color makes me look older (it's harsh). I also used John Frieda's Dark Chocolate (4BG) and Medium Chocolate Brown (5B) and they made my hair brassy and my grays become red and orange. Not attractive.

      Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Color Precision Foam Colour, 5N Brilliant Brunette Medium Natural Brown, 1 ea:

      The color is a rich brown, as expected from a 5N (for newbies: the color on the box is not what you get, you need to know your shade, as with other brands). It covers my gray perfectly and is very easy to apply uniformly. Easy to wash out. The conditioner gives shiny hair on the day of application. Overall, great experience and I will keep buying this color.

            I always use Clairol Natural Instincts 117, Medium Golden Brown, and I love it and I don't know what possessed me to try the John Frieda Precision Foam. BIG MISTAKE!!!!

            I now have DARK brown hair. It has no tones or highlights, it's just a solid block of dark brown, and it's definitely NOT salon quality. Clairol Natural Instincts has tones and highlights. I miss them.

            It also smells terrible and drips a surprising amount for a foam. And my hair feels somewhat fried.

            Calling Clairol in the morning to find out how soon I re-dye my hair and get my lovely natural medium brown hair back.

            It was done in 20 minutes. Covered my gray totally - great! But the color described as medium natural brown looks almost BLACK on my medium to light brown hair. I would advise considering choosing 1 shade lighter than you think you need.

            Foam color is advertised to be easier than traditional liquid but I found it harder to use. The photo in the directions shows a woman with lots of white foam on her head and it states you should have it all foamy like that while the color develops. But the foam disintegrates almost immediately and it can be hard to tell where you have already applied enough color. The back of my neck and skin behind my ears were stained black (glycolic peel pads will remove it).

            No awful ammonia smell. Love the conditioner that comes in the box.

              Ive been coloring my hair since I was a teen & used almost every brand out there. Finally I found a product that I dont need to buy 2 of because I have long hair...just one was more than enough. The color by far lasts 2xs longer that the other brands I used esp with the grays!! Theres no harsh odor & no scalp burning. I have recommended this product to all my friends & family!
