Coloring your hair yourself can be tricky. You need to be pretty limber to apply the color evenly to the tiny hairs in your neck area, to say nothing about the sprinkling of color dots on the bathroom tiles…
Using foam color makes changing your hair color pure pleasure. You can apply the foam like a shampoo. The foam feels light on your scalp, it smells pleasantly (since it contains no ammonia), it does not drip and stays where it is needed. In addition, the foam color will evenly and perfectly cover gray hair.
You should not mistake using a foam color treatment and using mousse to tint your hair. The pigment in the tinting mousse only attaches to the outside of the hair and coats it with a fine color film, which quickly starts disappearing from your hair. Tinting your hair with mousse will last no longer than 6 shampoos on the outside. The tinting mousse does almost nothing for gray hair. A real color treatment, even a foamy one, requires that you mix two ingredients. This is how you can tell the difference between coloring and tinting. Different from a tinting mousse, the foam color penetrates the hair for as long as you leave it in your hair and colors it permanently. Foam color covers gray completely.
