There’s a Mousse loose aboot this hoose!

So I thought it was about time I tried this mousse thing everyone’s buzzing about. Most companies are bringing out their own versions now and I thought I’d give Loreal a whirl.. 
Take one willing participant…
 A bunch of instructions in a variety of languages… 
 The apparatus looked cool and new… always generates hope
…An idea of what I’m looking at achieving 
Once Put together it was lightweight and didn’t seem to contain as much product as a usual cream/lotion colourant.. The bottle felt substantial but the product within did not. 
 Here are my roots before..
And my very damaged and much lighter ends.. 
It didn’t feel like I was going to have enough of the product to cover my hair, it was much like any other mousse.. it disappeared into my hair and didn’t really spread. I wasn’t keen on the application at all. 
Here’s the colour I am left with.. 
I like it but it doesn’t have much in the way of depth, the shine is nice but the conditioner included is nothing special at all… nothing compared to nice’n’easy 
 The ends do look healthier but I’d put that down to the blow dry more than the conditioning treatment or the colour itself.
Overall I’m disappointed. I expected a whole new way of colouring my hair, I expected a huge lather of foam (as shown on the box) Nothing about this product made me want to repurchase.. the colour is “so what” .. I can get the same elsewhere, My hair did feel soft after the blowdry but it usually does after a fresh colour.
The one and only saving grace is that this is not heavy, it all washed out and I didn’t feel like it left any residue. When I colour my hair it ALWAYS takes at least two washes before it’s gone but this left my hair feeling light and bouncy which was a nice change.
I’d be really interested to hear from you if you’ve tried this product and if you’ve tried other brands that you feel have been better than this let me know, I’d be tempted to try the Nice’n’Easy version because I love their stuff but not if the consensus that all mousse colours are the same.. I have come away from this disillusioned. As a regular dyer of her own hair for more than 10 years this was a cool new twist on the process but it turns out just to be a gimic that doesn’t really work any better than traditional colouring. So why change?

    Ahh..too bad this wasn't to great. I really wanted to try one of these new foam dye's but they are kind of pricey so i guess i will just stick to my regular cheaper hair dye. (enless i can find one on sale somewhere!)

    I dyed my hair red a few months ago and was getting bored and so I used that Colour B4 (I watched your video on it!)

    Oh my goosh, it took my hair from red to blonde!
    But its quite brassy, not too fussed, I just like to have a change.

    However, yesturday I popped into superdrug to buy the nice n easy foam day since its on offer for 4.99!

    Once my roots begin to come through I think I'll dye it with the foam dye (champagne medium blonde).
    Never tried foam dyes I just hope it works out!

    I've written a few blog posts about it ^^
