I wanted a fresh look and I was feeling darker hair (and...ok...I have a few grays! My family tends to gray in their 20's...and even when I see ONE I freak out, lol). So, I went to the drugstore and first tried a Garnier dye which made my hair reddish. UMMMM, NO! I have no problems with red hair, but that isn't me. And the box was definitely brown. However, after talking to my mom's friend who is a hair dress she explained that brown hair dyes contain red undertones and that most likely my hair was reacting to the red in the hair dye! Wonderful!
I then decided to try Samy Fat Foam to see if I could cover my now reddish brown hair (and oh yes, I sported that look for a few days at work with comments of...is your hair....red?)
The product is easy to mix. Poor in powder and the liquid and shake shake shake! What I love about this product is the coverage! I have trouble with the squirt bottle applications because I always feel like I end up with too much on one part of my head and the color is uneven.
After you dye it there is a shampoo that you use right away. I was nervous b/c normally you don't shampoo right away! But I did it and then applied the conditioner. My hair was super soft.
My hair has now been dyed about 3 weeks and I haven't had any fading (and I'm bad...I don't use shampoo for color treated hair...)

Warning: It says do not dye if you have your period. Um...I've never heard that in my life, but apparently it supposedly has something to do with your iron-levels during your cycle. If your a guy, you're fine. If you're a girl...well, I ignored the warning.
