It's by Schwarzkopf Professional and I got it at my hairdressers the other day. The bottle says: "Igora expert mousse 5-88". It's a semi permanent mousse color. I don't dye my hair myself, but I did want to try this mousse. (I also heard that, when you dye your hair yourself, it's best to use a semi permanent product.)
Okay so to start off, a little update on my red hair. If you really want a bright, vibrant red, you have to continue to dye it very frequently (which means it's quite expensive). Red hair is hard to keep and you have to change a lot of things about your hair routine. Now, I'm rather happy with the results I've had with my red hair, it's almost been one month since getting my hair dyed in a brighter red colour and my roots are barely visible.

The reason I didn't take one today is because I'm sick and I look aweful.
Please excuse me. Anyways, this is how my hair looks now.
I'm convinced that it also has to do with this mousse I've been using. Let me tell you, it's only a little bottle and it's pricey, but if keeping my hair vibrant red and nice means using this (and only having to dye my hair once a month or maybe once in six weeks- which is exeptional for people with red hair), I will continue to use it. So far, I have used it two or three times.
It's simple to use. You wash your hair, dry it a bit with a towel, shake the bottle and then apply this mousse.
If you leave it on 3-5 minutes, it'll act like a colour refleshing and conditioning mousse. If you leave it on between 15-20 minutes, it's an intensive colour treatement. Please do be careful. I noticed that my hands look really red after applying this, so don't touch anything if you want to avoid stains. I wash my hands right after applying the mousse and leave it in for about 15 minutes. Also, make sure not to wear your favourite clothes. Even if your hair is towel dried, it might still drip a bit and you don't want to get stains all over your prettiest shirt.
After the 15 minutes, I rinse until the water runs clear.
I am really happy with this product (of course I do use other products like red hair conditioners and such to protect my hair colour). I do admit that it's a bit expensive, but I knew from the start that red hair needs to be touched up often and that I was going to need more pricey, special products.
The bottle is almost $25,30 (which is around €19)
Have a great day!
