Review of SAMY Fat Foam Hair Color11:05 AM
I was inspired to order this product after seeing a few of my fellow Walmart Moms trying it out on SAMY's Facebook page. I had been pregnant for what seemed like forever, and now I was anxious to get rid of the grays that had accumulated over 10 months. I placed my order from Walmart.com, and got it within a few days.
I opened the package and followed the very easy directions for use. It was a lot like mixing up your typical color-at-home product -- with one difference: The mixing was done in a large canister (similar to how you mix up a health shake), not a squirt bottle. The application of the product was very quick! I have to admit that it usually takes me almost 15 minutes to get every single hair on my head coated with the typical coloring product, and that I always feel like I've missed an area. This product, however, was super-easy to apply, and seemed to soak right into every hair on the first try. A little bit of product went a long way. After rinsing out the color, I applied the shampoo and conditioner that it came with. It was a simple process, taking no more than 45 minutes from start to finish (the most time-consuming part was the processing -- 30 minutes.)
What is my final verdict on Samy Fat Foam Permanent Hair Color? I love it. While it could stand a few improvements (the product packaging seemed a bit wasteful and the foam was runnier than I had hoped), it left my hair soft, with vibrant color and hardly any of the yucky smell that other colors leave in for a few days. I would highly recommend that if applying the shampoo and conditioner in the shower, you cut open the packages with scissors before getting in (the little package are terribly difficult to open). You will also want to order a shade lighter than you are used to ordering... the color runs a bit dark. Fat Foam can be ordered from the Walmart website or at your local Walmart retailer.
