Hallelujah! What a great discovery. I have been getting a full head of foils and toner for a couple if years now, since I had some bad dying experiences. I recently lost my job and got a new one that doesn't start for a while, and in an effort to save money I thought, surely there is a dye that will do the trick!!
Considering everytime I got Hilights I had to get it toned darker.. What's the point of lifting it so much then?!
So I brought one of my hair extensions with me to the supermarket to color match..
I purchased this in 9a? Light ash blonde, as it was the closest match and my best friend recommended it.
Application: I was confused with the pump as it didn't pump.. Took me a while to work out that u have to squeeze the bottle :P
There was plenty of product, and I have long thick hair.
The foam was easy to use, the gloves were fantastic, and I just used my dye brush to help section and apply.
Did my roots first, left for 15 min then 10 on the lengths and ends.
Rinsed. My hair felt fine!! A lot better than after a bleach!
And oh my god the conditioner. It smells amazing!!!
I eagerly dried my hair and I'm so happy!!! No more roots, gorgeous color and my hair feels so soft :)
I think i may not have applied enough in a few spots but that my fault. But I am so happy!!
No more forking out $180 every 6 weeks :)
Reccomend this shade to light beige blondes!!!!
Will definately repurchase.

I used Feria hair color for years and never had a problem with it. I didn't particularly like how gaggy it made me with the strong ammonia content, but I dealt with it because it gave me a gorgeous color. Until it didn't. I don't know if my hair changed or their formula did, but suddenly my hair would no longer hold the (permanent!) color. I was so disappointed. My mom suggested I try another brand and I decided on this one because they offered the same color I was using and happened to be on sale at the time. The foam was a little weird to use at first, but I picked it up pretty quickly and though occasionally I'll get a whiff of ammonia that makes my head spin it's not anything near as bad as it was with the Feria and other (normal) hair colors I've tried. I also find that with my thick hair I actually get much more even coverage with the foam than I did with the regular liquid application. The wear is much better than I've gotten from other brands too. Reds are notoriously hard to hold, but I get a solid 4 weeks with this dye and really only noticeable fading between week 5-6. There's also much let color rinsing out the first few times I wash my hair after dying it. So while it's more expensive than other d/s dyes I think it's definitely worth the $2-3 extra.

I've found this to be the best drugstore hair color. It doesn't fade and I have dark blonde hair that I dye brown so it has a tendency to fade quickly with other brands. The only thing I don't like about it is that my hair looks flat and all one-dimension afterwards.

Easy to use but with thick hair, past my shoulder, I really did not care for the foam application as it was hard to do my roots closely. It smells good, left my hair in good condition but I do not care for the color (medium natural brown) as it came out too dark. The good part is that it will oxidize in probably a week if I am lucky. In the meantime, I doubt I will buy again as I just don't like foam application.
I got it at a great price due to a $5 off coupon but really, it is not good at coloring my gray either as others have said. I did get compliments on my hair but I have no idea why as to me it looks pretty bad. The color is NOT even.

I bought the shade in Luminous Blue Black. My hair previously was black with blonde bangs and my hair down is a little lower than shoulder length. One box was more than enough to cover my entire head. In fact, I could have covered it 2-3 times extra because it's a foam formula instead of a liquid. That's the first thing I like about this product - you get a lot more product because of the foam dispenser than regular liquid hair dyes so 1 box will probably work for really long hair too. Also, I didn't have any patches and the color was exactly what I was looking for - a bright deep jet black. I also LOVE the conditioner that comes in the box - It made my hair extremely smooth, silky, and shiny. Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side but I think for the amount of product it's quite good.

Okay it is pricy, one down side to this product. I had coupons and catch it on sale when I can. This was the first foam hair color I had tried, which I like the ease of it going on. In total I have tried 3, ( 4GB Dark Chocolate Brown, 5B Medium Chocolate Brown, and 5G Medium Golden Brown) I always forgot which color I had before. Overall, I was very please with the overall results. Applying it was simple and it did wash out fully, without leaving a stain on my towel. I liked how it left my hair feeling as well. It gave my hair rich brown tones to it and didn't bring out any red, which made me very happy. This product I do recommend to those I know.

After trying different grocery store box brands this is my favorite blonde at home color! It's a really nice sunkissed blonde (unlike the sublime foam one which was trashy blonde looking) I really like the foam color! For roots it blends really well with whatever blonde I have lower and there is plenty of product for my whole head (unlike Clairol root touch up) It also covers all of my greys (unlike Loreal Performing Preference) Its a little more than the other grocery store box colors but this one does everything!

For years a stylist came to my home to colour my hair using Logics, then she moved out of state and I really didn't want to endure the atmosphere of a salon. My natural color is a dirty blond with no gray. With a free coupon, I acquired the John Frieda Precision Foam Color Permanent Hair Colour, 10N Sheer Blonde Extra Light Natural Blonde to touch up my roots, a task I had never attempted myself. Following the instructions I was surprised at how easy this was! My hair is very thick and the bottle contains more than enough solution. The conditioner is an ample size which gives several uses. I love this colour - on me a medium light golden blond and have purchased it about five times. My hair is soft, shiny and I've received numerous compliments.

I have to admit, I am just not crazy about this hair color. I mean I love the idea of foam, and I love the color. I picked the deep black brown, which is 3N. And I made sure that it was even throughout my hair, used the entire bottle because my hair is extremely thick, and goes past my shoulders. Well unfortunately where the color hit the most was the top portion, the underside of the hair and towards the ends looks as though it hadn't been touched by the color at all. I paid close attention to the direction, and it just didn't hold true. However, where the color did deposit, it turned it a heavenly deep chocolate brown, comparable to that of Nina Dobrev. I would like to purchase it one more time, just to see if perhaps it was a bad box, and if it does the same thing, I won't be purchasing this hair color again. Quite disappointed.

Medium Natural Blonde 8N
-Hair type & color: Wavy/curly, very fine but not super thin, frizz prone/Natural color: Medium golden blonde with lots of red tones, picks up bright blonde highlights if I'm outside for any length of time.-
I recently began getting some silvers (not white, straight silver) and wanted to find something close to my natural color. I have read that using hair color that says Golden will pull red, and Ash can go green or gray (definitely not what I want.) I know two women who have used JFPF and both came out exactly like the color on the box. (One brunette, one very light blonde with no warm tones.) After reading tons of reviews, I was still nervous because it seems that brunettes have an easier time in general coloring their hair (ie. less catastrophes). I chose Medium Natural, figuring I don't want to go too light in case it looks awful and I end up with darker roots.
The application was a piece of cake; no mess, great gloves, the smell wasn't too strong, and I only had to wait 20 minutes. Not only am I relieved to not have a disaster on my hands.. I am loving the color! It didn't pull my red tones too far at all, no brassiness and definitely not too cool. The balance of warm and cool tones is just right. It's a medium-to-light *golden* blonde with lots of shine. The conditioner that comes with it is excellent. I left that on for a full 5 minutes. I am so pleased with this product! I paid $11.99 and will happily do so again as that beats $100 at a salon any day.
(Grey coverage: Right now, I don't have that much silver hair but it appears to be covered.)
*Update: After several washings, this color settled down beautifully. I liked the initial color but the color now is perfect. I think I will go for Light Natural Blonde next time, after all. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something so easy to apply that it's virtually foolproof and good quality. Just be sure to read the instructions. :)
