I purchased this after reading all the reviews for it, so I knew I was getting a medium, really almost dark, reddish brown. Since that's what I was after, that was fine with me. However, if like the other people who reviewed this, I had expected light brown, I would be very dissatisfied. Why they called this color light brown is anyone's guess.

Actually, as I said, it is on the dark side of medium (!), and I am going to get it and the darkest blonde and mix them and see how that goes.

It says don't use if your hair has been recently highlighted, and mine had been, but I chanced it and it turned out fine.

I liked how you can easily get hair in the back and underneath, because I have gray there.

It is better than others in terms of dripping, but don't try bending down when you have it on your head or it will start to drip.

Overall, a positive experience. Easy to use, colored all my gray very well (and I have hard to cover gray), natural-looking and covered the back easily.

I would recommend it to a friend who was looking for a dark medium brown with some red in it.

As others have commented before me, this light golden brown turns out WAY darker and redder than it should. I won't fault them on how red it turned out, as I've had that problem with other brands as well. But this was nowhere near light brown. Medium to dark is more like it. Shocking and disappointing result. I did like the ease of use with the foam, and it did not smell bad or have strong fumes at all. Might try again in lighter shade if there is one available.

Most Favorite Hair Color!

Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, 6G Brilliant Brunette Light Golden Brown, 1 ea:

I love this haircolor!! It's so easy to apply, & not once have I had an issue of any patchiness, which is exactly why I tried this in the first place. Like the negative reviewers complain about, I agree that it's very "bold" hair color & highly saturated. I do recommend trying a color a shade lighter than you like per the pic on the box. But it's easy to find the perfect color, & I don't plan on ever using traditional hair color cream again.

Make sure you use at least one shade lighter than usual. His colors are saturated, so they last a long time but they go on darker than anticipated.
I also only comb it it through my ends for one minute.

        I do know home color as I have been using home color for years. This product comes out much, much darker than the box, moreso than any other brand of home color.

        I've been using another brand for years but the store was out of it so I decided to try this. It's awful. My hair came out much, much darker than the color on the box and the John Frieda had no tones, it was just a monotonous color, unlike the other brand. Never again.

          Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, 6G Brilliant Brunette Light Golden Brown, 1 ea:

          The biggest thing you must know is ALL hair color is darker than the box appears. I've used many over the years and this one is no different. It is darker than it shows...but not much darker. (And FAR less o a difference than other brands of hair color which show the samples and they turn out nearly black!)

          This is VERY easy to use. It doesn't have much of a scent at all! I didn't even have to open a window! Great coverage. Easy to apply. MORE than enough to get through my very thick shoulder length hair with tons extra.

          It lasts well. Makes your hair super shiny. There is a HUGE amount of follow up conditioner for use weeks afterwards. Covers grey fantastic!

          I highly recommend this color and the entire line. My favorite hair dye by far! And the foam only makes it that much better!

            I was very dissappointed in this product and will not use it again. The hair color came out very uneven with reddish streaks in certain spots.

            The product was delivered promptly and in good condition.

            Comments about John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, 6G Brilliant Brunette Light Golden Brown, 1 ea:

            I used the product according to the directions on the box, but it came out as a dark reddish brown, not a light golden brown. When I started, my hair was already light golden brown, so I wasn't looking to change the color - just hide some grays.

            My hair looks truly awful, not at all complimentary for my skin tone. I am so incredibly disappointed with this product. The worst part is that it didn't really cover the gray hairs, so the grays are now amplified against this reddish brown nightmare. Stay away from this product unless you're looking for a very dark color with poor gray coverage. I bought color 6G.

            I love the ease of this product but the color is way too dark. I'm trying my third color and still can't get it right. Going to have to try blonde to get a light brown. Still like the product but John Frieda would keep more customers if the color on the box was true.

                  I also tried light golden brown and followed the directions carefully and it came out more of an auburn. I gave it three stars because the color looks nice, even if it is darker than expected, and my hair is nice and soft feeling with this product.

                  It did cover the gray well. I would buy it again but probably a dark blond next time to actually get light golden brown.
