This is one of the absolute best hair color products I've ever used. I typically color my hair in the darkest black possible and that's exactly the result that I get! They have a really good variety of colors, its not a ton of colors but it does offer customers a good selection. I love that it is a foam, its so easy to use and I think I get less stains on my skin using this color product. Its easy to find and a reasonable price, its the only permanent hair color I will use!

Tried this for the first time yesterday!!! Love, love, LOVE this product. It says easy to use and all over coverage with no spots. It is absolutely right. It cover ALL my hair without leaving spots, there is no harsh smell, it washes clear quick, and the conditioner left hair soft and smelling great. The dye is not harsh on the hair it actually makes it feel healthy and not processed. Took me year but I found my favorite hair dye in this product!!!

When I don’t have time or the funds to go to the salon, I trust John Frieda! This hair color is not only cheap and easy to use, the color is amazing! I have used all sorts of brown and dark browns with red and they are my absolute favorite! So beautiful and not patchy at all. The foam is super easy to apply.

Review for: Dark Cool Espresso Brown (4PBN) more...
This is my absolute favorite at home hair dye. The color was rich and vibrant and looked exactly as it said it would. This dye is tad expensive compared to others you can find at Walmart, Walgreens, etc but I only need one box of hair dye for my long, straight hair as opposed to two boxes of others brands such as Garnier, L’Oréal, or even Schwarzkopf because it turns into a foam and covers more area while also saturating it extremely well. I’ve only tried the dark shades so far, but they all have exceeded my expectations and I imagine the light shades would also work very well also!

My tried and true holy grail at home hair that it's a foam so I never worry about it running down my face or back. I have long hair and 1 box covers..even my Grey's! I get so many compliments on my color too. (3VR) love this...easy to mess. What's not to love about this

Review for: Dark Chocolate Brown (4BG) more...
I recently used this hair dye. Good things: the color is pretty, my hair was shiny for a few days after, it was easy to apply. The problem is that my roots were lighter than the rest of my hair once I was finished. It wasn't very noticeable to others, but I obviously could tell. I will say I didn't follow the directions on how to apply the color to the hair according to the type of method you needed (example: total color, or regrowth). For reference I had dark brown hair with grown out roots that are light brown. I will probably continue using this product and see if it works out better next time.

When I can't go to a salon, I love using this box color. It is so easy to use and has great results. It last a little over a month for me and it leaves my hair feeling smooth. I would recommend to others.

Did John Frieda last long for you? Did anyone else think it was pricey for the amount of product in the bottle?

I was wondering if anyone has ever used hair dye for eyebrows. And if so, what brand works best?
