I love the whole foam hair colour concept and this was actually the last DIY hair colour brand I used...I bought the Chocolate Brown...which turned my medium brown hair almost black - why does this keep happening to me???
Anyway, I found the foam very easy to apply...it was easy to know where the colour was...there was enough colour foam to do my whole head(my hair is past my shoulder blades).
The result was great for a couple of weeks and then the greys started appearing again....NOT GOOD!!!

Go to hair dye!
This is my absolute favourite hair dye and I have been using it for years. I use the shade pearl blonde, and its the perfect colour for my hair. It lightens my roots to a lovely blonde colour without being too harsh or damaging my hair.
It's also super easy to apply as its a foam, you just pump it into your hand and massage it into your hair. Its quick, easy, delivers good results and can usually be found on sale for around $10! Woohooo
I will continue to purchase this product until I find another hair dye that beats it!

Really easy to apply
I liked using this colour as it is a foam and not too messy and it doesn't drip. The colour I used was Iced Chocolate, which came out really nice. I did it on my blonde hair and took really well.

Easy to use, but lacks the frills
This, like other mousse products, is much much easier to self apply than regular liquid dyes. You don't have to fret so much about splattering the sink, and can easily control where the foam goes. It's coverage is quite good, certainly not noticeably worse than more expensive products, but your colour perhaps won't match the box so well. It claims to be drip-free but does "drip" - during the waiting time, if the room is hot, the foam will melt and run down your face or back, so be cautious. In addition, it does not come with anything to apply to the tips to protect them, so don't apply too much there, or anything if your previous dye hasn't faded. Finally, the gloves it comes with are worse than useless - I always throw them right out and use my own disposables.

I tried perfect mousse 2x already and both 2x the hair dye didnt work! I blamed myself on the 1st one coz i washed my hair that morning thinking it will still work. On the 2nd time around i blamed it to the product. I didnt wash my hair for abt 2 days, and read the instructions carefully. I have black hair and i bought medium brown (i always get medium brown hair dye using different brand- always works all the time). As i was saying, use the perfect mousse, waited 30 mins and rinsed it. Guess what, i still have black hair!!! It was easy to use but too bad i wont be using it again. It just doesnt work. Not a happy customer. :-/ RESPONSE FROM SCHWARZKOPF: Hi Goldie713, Perfect Mousse is not designed to lighten any existing colour. Thanks very much for your review, we're sorry to hear this product didn't deliver the results you wanted. Perfect Mousse is not designed to lighten any existing colour.

So easy with a great result
I have very long hair that I have coloured a lot over the years. When I used this product my hair was tragic, with several shades browns and about 8cm of regrowth that included a LOT of greys. This product was the easiest hair dye I have ever used. It had no chemical smell, in fact it has quite a pleasant scent. The foam is super easy to apply and as promised, no drips. I usually need two boxes of dye but this foam is not only generous, but distributes so easily throughout the hair that one box was plenty for me. I got the box on special at priceline for $10 so I can't complain about the value!! The foam does make your hair wet, but it feels so weightless and with no chemical smell it is barely noticeable as you wait the 30 minute developing time. It rinsed out very easily, although before conditioning my hair did feel coarse. The conditioner that is included is a bit small, so I used a Dove treatment conditioner after the dye to give my hair a boost. After blowdrying, my hair looked great! Very silky, smooth and most impressive of all, EVEN coverage. I was not expecting this as my hair was so inconsistent in colouring before. All greys gone! My hair looks healthy, glossy and very natural (even though I used black, it's not as deep unnatural black as other dyes I have used. A softer black if that makes sense). I will definitely continue to use this dye. My only small gripe is the size of the conditioner, but I generally like to use a treatment after hair dye anyway.

I love it!!!
It is soo easy to use. I got a great coverage for my hair and the color lasts for ages. I colored my hair over 8 weeks ago and only need to color it again because I have regrowth. I have used in for touching up my regrowth and have also had fantastic results. Every time I have used this product I have gotten wonderful comments about my hair and people ask me were I got it done and I say I did it myself:) I have even done my mums hair for her with this product. I highly reccomend people to give it a try.

Don't buy it
I used this product in the darkest black shade, for my hair which had been dyed from black to brown a few months back, to cover regrowth. Why?
1. It smells horrible though its 'ammonia free', makes my eyes sting and makes me look like i'm crying -my mom thought i was !
2. it offered immediately great coverage, but this wore off in a week's time. can you believe? A WEEK. for 'permanant' hair dye.
3. Foam is really annoying and takes ages to cover hair and the you dont really know when your hair is covered and 'wet' enough.
4. The foam is watery and not very foam-y at all
5. There are better products out there. I wouldnt go back to foam, dye rocks.!
6. it's #*!@ for the price point.

If you have long hair avoid messy mousse!
The mousse idea sounded great until the very instant I sprayed it into my hand - I then immediately realised it was going to be a disaster. I have waist-length hair and home-colour my hair all the time, and I have a method: one "clean" hand, one "dirty" hand - I squeeze the bottle with one hand and work the dye through with the other so I always have a clean hand for changing bottles and other general stuff like itchy noses (hey it happens!).
You can't do this with mousse! It's light and floaty and goes EVERYWHERE unless you smoosh it between your palms to calm it down. It's hard to mix evenly, hard to apply evenly and just a gigantic pain. it also made my hair feel coarse :(

Not a good home hair dye
I've used a lot of hair dyes and this was one far from impressed me. For starters the whole foam concept was kind of a fail, it didn't mix properly and I ended up with liquidy bits all over the place and had to scrape the rest out of the bottle. It's ammonia free but still has a really strong chemical smell, it was actually worse then a lot of ammonia dyes I've tried in the past. I didn't like the conditioner it came with either. Finally, the colour selection is quite limited and what was meant to be chocolate brown came out almost black on me with a red sheen in the light. Thankfully it only lasted about a month. Won't be repurchasing.
