John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Review

I'm quite a newbie when it comes to colouring my hair-as in the only time I have done it my mum did it for me! I was lucky enough to go to the BH open day in Melbourne and received a box of the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour to try out. I picked Dark Natural Brown as I'm not wanting to do anything to crazy with my hair just yet! I was worried I would completely stuff this up somehow, but I managed!! I'm thinking this might be because this hair colour is so easy to use!

First, this is the colour of my hair before dyeing.

As you can see it isn't one block colour but a bit lighter in different areas.
So to the box!

Inside the box is three bottles. 1. Developer 2. Colourant 3. Conditioner. It also came with a foamer and a pair of black gloves to protect your hands.
Firstly you add the colourant to the developer and tilt it upside down five times with the lid on. After this you replace the lid with the foamer and it is ready to go! I used the whole bottle to saturate my dry hair in foam and it was more than enough. It was a little awkward at first to get my hair to stay damp but I figured it out! Once all the product is in you leave it for 20-30 minutes. The foam doesn't drip at all which is great.

During this time I gave myself a mini facial using my cleanser, exfoliater and a mask. This ended up being about 20 minutes so was a good time filler!

You then rinse out the foam in warm water until the water runs clear. I did this in the shower and I felt like I was showering in chocolate milk it was so brown!! Once clean you use the conditioner all over your hair and leave for 3-5 minutes. I loved this conditioner-I will probably go and find a John Frieda one to use now as it was amazing on my hair. I let my hair air dry and it was the softest it has been in ages!

The final result is below!

As you can see it is all one colour now! Not too dark but just enough for me. Since colouring I have gone for a swim and washed my hair three times. It is lasting everywhere except for the tips of my hair and I think that is only because it was previously so light.

This pack retails for $22.99. I was pretty happy with how easy it was to use and the mess-free application. I would give this product a 8/10.
