Hi, yes also tried the Frieda one, totally agree that mousses are the best. swedish yes it's a permanent. I find that shade enhances the still brown hair and the greys/whites which are quite resistant to dye go a lighter brown/dark blonde so ends up looking highlighted iyswim?
L'oreal I avoid because of how they test on animals.
To those who have done a dark blonde John Frieda colour, may I know your results? My hair is a manky dirty blonde with platinum streaks unless I dye it. So I choose dark blonde over weird manky streaks!
Can I trust Frieda? L'oreal used to be my safeguard.
My mum swears by John Frieda (don't know if it's a mousse, comes in a box...about ten quid in Boots though you can sometimes get it on offer there and in other supermarkets). Her hair dresser said it looks like professional colour and the condition has improved. I don't use any hair dye, never have, so can't say personally.
Watching this thread with interest. I have a washed out lightish brown haired colour. It was semi perm medium brown and this is the faded colour I am left with. As rich as the med brown colour was on me, it's also a bit ageing and harsh. I use nice and easy and am interested in other light brown brands. I'm scared it will go a bit red though.
Yep, olia is rubbish, more of less washed out within a few washes, however, over the ladt few times that I have done a home colour, the results haven't been that great & I think its because im just not that good at doing them anymore!
As a treat I had my hair done at the hairdressers earlier in the year & it was brill, just the right colour, my roots matched the rest of my hair so no root glow & obviously perfect application. A couple of weeks ago I tried olia, thinking I'd save some money, well my roots sre still showing & the colour has washed out!
