Talking Foam colour

hi there,

Is there anyone who has experience with John Frieda precision foam colour. I would like to dye my hair, and I'm looking for a product that isn't drying for my hair and CG-friendly as possible with no cones Anyone tried this hairdye? Was it drying? My curltype is 2B, needs protein. My color is dark-brown and I would like to dye it in a warmer color (red tint). Thanks !

I only tried it once or twice, and it seemed somewhat drying, but no worse than henna or any shampoo. My hair is super-dry to begin with, though.
Texture: coarse + some medium

Be careful with the John Frieda foam! The color comes out waaay darker than it appears on the box. I read a bunch of reviews that said to choose 1-2 shades lighter than you actually want. I did this, yet still ended up with darker hair than I started with (I was trying to go a shade lighter). This also did not cover my grays.

Thanks Diaspora! Always very important to have this kind of information.

I'm going to stick with what I use now and I really appreciate that you warned us.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
