“HORRIBLE Worst coloring product ever”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by IsaiasMcCoy (1 review written)

I just used John Frieda foam in color .. OMG ! WORST product ever! I have thin but otherwise very healthy hair ,,, after rinsing the product and applying the CHEAP conditioner .. I could not get a comb thru my hair .. it feels HORRIBLE , dry brittle breaking off in clumps. I used 2 different conditioning products to TRY to undo some of the damage . Finally ended up sending my husband out to a salon to buy an expensove spray on detangler so I could comb thru it. This product is AWFUL… Read Full Review

“Rubbish”

Written on: 29/06/2013

Went for dark brown v similar to my original hair colour. Just was looking for a colour to cover the few grey I have and where the sun has lightened the ends slightly. Found the colour really didn't do anything- didn't cover the grey despite leaving it that bit longer as it instructed. Colour and ends just looked much dryer afterwards. Really wouldn't recommend it… Read Full Review

“Absolutely dreadful”

Written on: 20/06/2013 by redheadnot (1 review written)

Well used to doing my hair myself, tried this because of the foam. RUBBISH! My hair is completely different from the box colour - went from strawberry blonde to dark brown - awful! Wont be buying anything by JOHN FRIEDA again - no satifaction or explanation from them as to what went wrong. I went by the book, well experienced in doing my own colour. Appalled, John Frieda, appalled!… Read Full Review

It was awful!! I wanted to dye my hair a lighter blonde and it only got my roots and barely nothing else!! It even didn't change my hair color!! It was my first and my last time using this crap!! One pro out of it I got it for free! Good thing I didn't waste $10 on this junk!! I put the whole bottle on like it recommended and did everything the directions said to do! Very disappointed with this! I hope this guy reads all of these reviews!! It's just TERRIBLE!!!!!! I knew I should've read… Read Full Review

“Worst Color Ever!”

I used the dark chocolate brown. Despite claims that it provides long-lasting grey coverage, the color didn't even last a week! Washed out after 2 shampoos. Won't EVER purchase Frieda color again!… Read Full Review

“John Frieda Precision Foam Dark Natural blonde”

Written on: 02/02/2013

I had medium blonde hair before i started that wasn't bad but it needed a boost, i had been using garnier Nutrisse and thought i would check out the John Frieda Foam dye as its meant to be a salon formula. Well the application was easy and the foam is good it does not go everywhere and is not as messy as some. The colour, is nothing WOW! it is an ordinary light/medium moussy gingery brown, nothing glossy about it at all. I would NOT recommend at all, Garnier Nutrisse colours are much… Read Full Review

“The box lies.”

Written on: 08/12/2012

Naturally i have medium brown hair. I bought the 'dark cool pearl blonde' dye expecting to go a dark blonde, as one would expect so if it says on the box. My hair is now significantly darker than before. Particularly annoyed and disappointed, id like to go lighter as i intended, but I'm afraid if i dye it again using a different colour and brand this vile chemical I've just put in my hair will make it go green or something. Definitely don't recommend it if you want to get what you asked… Read Full Review

obviously if you have dark brown hair and put a blonde over it, its not going to come up nicely first go. You need to tone it afterwards. Also doing this yourself if you're not experienced as you seem you are not do not try and do it with products from the supermarket and expect salon results.

Um what you don't realise is if you have medium brown hair or darker you must pre bleach your hair before using dye ok. John Freda is the best ever better than any other salon or store colour

“Light? No way!”

Written on: 16/10/2012

Bought this in Light Ash Blonde with intention of getting a light to medium blonde. Natural colour and previous haircolour were a medium blonde. This so-called "light" shade ended up as a dark blonde, if not light brown!! Not at all what I was wanting! Off to the salon for a colour correction, so a $14 box of hair colour is now costing $140. NOT AT ALL impressed. If there is an upside, the conditioner was great: light with a nice fragrance… Read Full Review

“AWFUL”

Written on: 12/09/2012 by chadders12 (1 review written)

I had a medium/dark blonde colour and decided that I would go slightly darker. Slightly being the incorrect term after I had used the dye. The packets looked quite redish and so i picked the dark cool blonde. My hair is now medium ashy brown which i swear looks grey. NEVER using this product again. Now having to pay to get this sorted out. Also what makes this even worse is that it was more expensive than practically all the other hair dyes… Read Full Review

I am in love with this dye! Last time I dyed my hair it went really brassy but that was with a different dye. This time it is the blonde I want it! Almost platinum. The dye was really easy to apply as well and there was no mess, no fuss… Read Full Review

“Washes out”

Written on: 19/06/2012

I thought I would give the colour a try, because I love the shampoos, etc. What a mistake! It didn't cover the grey very well, and it washed out in 2 shampoos. I will never buy this again… Read Full Review

“wish I read all reviews before purchasing”

Written on: 09/05/2012

I used john Freida precision faom today in light ash brown. I wanted a medium brown result therefore went for a shade lighter as the product ends up darker than it states in the front. As I was applying I could see that it was already going dark within 5 minutes so I must have left it for 15 mins max. Anyway I washed the product out and my hair looked very very dark. Evn though I used a shade lighter my hair is more of a dark brown than medium. Wish I didn't buy and would defo not buy again… Read Full Review

Used the same produce - really really dark. Couldn't even be called auburn - way darker. Did everything by the book, no explanation from them, just offered me another. NO THANKS - rubbish.
Will never go near this brand again.

“awful”

Written on: 29/04/2012

I just coloured my hair with John Frieda Light Warm Golden Brown FOAM. This foam did not work after a few pushes, I end up doing my hair dye with my hand and the liquid in the bottle and what a mess.......... all over the play and were the dye landed it left dye spots on the wall and floor. The pump did NOT work. I put the top on and it clicked to postion. The pump worked up to 3 times then would not pump anymore. A real disaster. I will not use foam ever again, I'll stick to the cream !!!!… Read Full Review

“Dont use if you like to change your colour now and then!”

Written on: 28/04/2012

I used one of the darker brown JF mousse colours. Stays on, doesn't fade BUT a few months later I wanted to go a bit lighter. Looked at the back of the box seemed totally suitable. It actually went DARKER despite being a lighter shade. Only use this product, in my opinion, if you want to have one colour and keep it on there forever. It has almost too much staying power. It is easy to apply though and doesn't drip. The conditioner that goes with it is quite nice and conditioning… Read Full Review

Pros: nice colour result Cons: Expensive, colour lasted about 2 washes, smells foul like industrial chemicals, complicated to apply, said it should be easy and wasn't, got a generally better experience using one that cost half the price, don't waste your money on this!… Read Full Review

“meh....”

Written on: 05/04/2012

I bought this hair colour because it sounded great. It was a mousse.. the hair colour looked awesome...I found it annoying. I don't think the mousse is easier to deal with.. also, this product smells bad. I was not pleased with the hair colour at all.. and it was messy... and the conditioner is poor too. I get better hair colour and conditioner with the $5 Garnier product i have been using...I will never buy this product ever again. nor will i recommend it to someone. If it was $3 to buy i… Read Full Review

7G Dark Golden Blonde JF Precision Hair Colourant My hair was already coloured with John Freidas medium blonde,however,the colour was much darker and cooler than I wanted so I decided to go for something a little warmer. I watched the video on the JF website, did the Precision foam wizard to make sure that I chose the right shade and went with the advice given which was to get 7G Dark Golden Blonde. I was hoping for golden warm tones but still blonde. Having used the colourant and turned… Read Full Review
