John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Hair Dye
Advantages: results, saves me money not going to hair dressers,
Disadvantages: more expensive than other hair dyes at boots
I always went to the hairdressers to have my hair coloured. However, unlike most women I absolutely hate going. It feels like a life time waiting around for the colour and having it washed and styled there. To me colouring my hair in the comfort of my own home is much better, been able to watch tv and relax whilst waiting for the colour is something I would much prefer, rather than sit in a hair dressers chair reading old magazines.
So I decided to go online and find out which hair dyes are the best. I noticed the John fredia one from many good reviews on hair and beauty websites. A lot of people said that it was really good. And is a few pounds more expensive than the home hair dye kits in Boots but it's worth the extra pounds the reviewers said as it gives a more salon finish.
The hair dye is £9.99, when normally most hair dye kits are about $4-£6. However, this hair dye is often on sale at £6.66 in the supermarkets and Boots. Every now and again, so its worth buying a few boxes if you find a colour you like.
The hair dye is a foam one. Which to me is the most easiest way to dye hair because after applying on the roots first it is pretty much like shampooing your hair, it is foamy like shampoo and lathers up, so you can massage it into your hair like shampoo. I always do my own hair and have had no trouble what so ever on applying it because its so straight forward thanks to the foam formulae.
The hair dye comes in a box with a tube of colourant, the application bottle, black rubber gloves and conditioner to help maintain the colour. You have to pour the colourant into the applicator bottle. The instructions make it clear that you must not shake the bottle when you do this, all you need to do is tilt the bottle five times. To get the foam out of the bottle you need to press the sides of the bottle and the foam comes out of the nozzle. The foam should be applied to your roots and then work down to the mid lengths and the end of your hair. It is so straight forward to apply to the hair thanks to it been foam. It states to leave the hair dye on the hair for about 25 minutes. Which is fairly quick compared to some hair dyes. The quicker the better in my eyes, it means I can get on with doing other things and not dedicating so much time to doing it. I usually apply the colour then put a shower cap over my hair so I can just sit around watch tv and not worry if it drips onto my cream carpet. However, I could probably go without a shower cap because it doesn't seem to drip anyway. Then I rinse the hair colour out after the 25 minutes and apply the colour conditioner to the hair and keep rinsing it till the water is clear.
The hair dye is such a lovely colour (I used 9N which is a light natural blonde shade). I have used other shades of blondes that are a bit darker in this range and liked them too. But this is definitely my favorite as I prefer my hair a lighter colour as it suits me more. The hair colour looks much more like it's been done at a hair salon than most of the hair dyes I've used previously. It gives really good results and the colour looks so natural even when its light. Some hair dyes can look so bad and look so unnatural whereas this one doesn't give that results. Everyone compliments my hair colour and asks me where I get it done. This is always so nice because I think I spend £10 on having my hair done a month and still get compliments, whereas some people I know spend £50+ and don't get the results this colour gives,
The website has tons of information on there about shades, reviews and so on. Also if you look on google and choose the colour you think would suit you, you can google the name of it and see what other people think of it and the results it gave them. It gives me a good indication whether the colour will look good or not.
The conditioner that is given with the hair dye, isn't one of the best. I have used Nice n easy hair dye before and found their conditioner much better. I tend to not really use it now and because of its size I just take it with me when I stop at peoples houses now because although its not amazing its still fairly usable and the size makes it handy to travel with. I tend to use hair colour conditioners despite this just usually what ever is on offer at the time that I have been recommended.
Fantastic hair dye, so easy to apply. The results are great and I definitely will stick to using this product. It's so quick and so straight forward. The hair dye conditioner could do with a slight improvement but I'm not complaining too much as the hair dye is great and most people prefer using different hair colour conditioners than the one given with the hair dye anyway.
