I thought I was totally trying something new when I used John Frieda Precision Foam Colour at the weekend! But, it turns out that back in 2011 I tried it then, and liked it as much as I did this time around!

I’ve used Olia for such a long time (with an awful foray into another brand that was so full of amonia I nearly choked) that I’d completely forgotten that I’d ever tried John Frieda Precision Foam Colour. It’s a strange thing, but when I Instagramed the box – which also went on Twitter – the two channels were totally divided on it – Instagram loved it, Twitter didn’t love it at all.

As a quick reminder, it’s the simplest thing to use – once you’ve got the foam mixed (don’t shake it!) you slap it on your head and leave it for 30 minutes. Crucially, I didn’t spill a drop – my carpet in my bedroom is testament to the number of splashes caused by other dyes and it’s not pretty at all! I did get a slight amonia smell – but I mean slight – compared to the other brand, and just had a long, relaxing bath while the dye got to work, then showered it off. I didn’t use the JF conditioner – I used Kerastase instead. I always find that conditioners that come with dyes take nearly forever to rinse out.

The result is that the colour is amazing – I chose a dark brown which errs on the side of caution (not nearly black like the other ‘dark brown’ I used), it’s covered every single grey and my hair doesn’t feel any the worse for it at all.

So, it’s a huge recommend if you fancy a change up from your usual dye – I’ll definitely use it again. Don’t forget, Twitter did not like this! But Instagram did…

I’ve just spotted it’s on a Boots offer for £6.66 (is that a good omen?!) instead of the usual price of £9.99 HERE.
