Walk onto any hair color isle in any store and you’re sure to immediately become overwhelmed. Even if you walked into the store “knowing” what you wanted, the plethora of color options and mesmerizing photos of shiny hair plastered across the glossy rectangular boxes are enough to knock you off your feet. There are formulations for different varieties of hair but for the girl who just wants all over color that delivers with little to no mess – there is only one choice that can deliver without much fuss. foam.

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour is our choice for ease when it comes to foam-based hair color. Their foam application is kind of revolutionary when it comes to at-home color. “In the old days” people used messy bottles, now it’s all about the foam. This foam is non-drip and covers every strand perfectly, so you can be sure you get the results you are looking for. because of the salon quality formulation, you don’t have to worry about over-processing your natural hair and with so many shades, you can find a hair color that works for your skin tone. The foam spreads through your curls quick and easy and you can cover the front and the back of your head without the help of a friend. just think along the lines of covering your hair in conditioner.

We think that John Frieda Precision Foam Colour works best on thick, medium-to coarse strands of wavy to curly hair. even girls with lots of dense, shoulder-length strands can get enough coverage out of one bottle. When you have a lot of hair and color at home, color messes can ensue and often without even being able to color your entire head with one bottle, but with this foam, you can all but forget about messiness or running short on foam because you get a lot of foam. a whole lot. If you have long and dense hair then we’d suggest two boxes of this color. It also covers greys extremely well and the color turn out is amazing with lots of depth and richness. On fine hair it works as well, but we like something a little thicker, since the foam seems to stick better to thicker hair (though that’s not to say that it does not work on thin hair).

The directions are user friendly and the pictures in the guide almost make for just following along without even reading the insert (we don’t recommend that – just pointing out how good the pictorial guide is). As for the smell – hey, it’s hair color so we weren’t expecting lavender fields, but it was noticeably less strong than many other hair color products we’ve smelled before.

For simple, at-home, all over color, we like John Frieda Precision Foam Colour. it’s hard to get consistent results that last in a bottle of color from your roots to your tips, but with this home color system makes it easy to ace coloring your own hair.
