|John Frieda Frizz-Ease|
As some of my lovely readers might remember, a few months back I tried out the John Frieda Full Repair range. Now I didn't really get on well with the Full Repair range because I think it just didn't suit my hair type. My hair is more frizzy and wavy that very dry and damaged, so recently I was sent out a few bits from the John Frieda Frizz-Ease range to try out.
|Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Shampoo|
First up is the Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Shampoo (€6.31). This is part of the Frizz-Ease Dream Curls range and there is a conditioner and styling spray to go along with it too. The range is to help define and enhance curls while leaving a less frizzy appearance. So generally I have quite wavy to slightly curly hair. You can notice my curls most obviously when I wake up in the morning or when I leave my hair to dry naturally. I used this shampoo in the morning, tied up my hair for work and headed out for the day. Now generally when I get home from work my ponytail is a mess of frizzy blonde hair but not after using this. I noticed it was quite a lot smoother and the waves/curls were definitely more defined. I imagine if you had a massive heads of curls, then this range could sort out some serious frizz issues for you.
|Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Styling Spray|
Next is the Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Styling Spray for curly hair (€7.03). This is a semi-permanent styling spray that is heat activated, to keep hair straight for 3 days. Basically what you do is spray this 7-15 times throughout your hair when wet or damp and comb it though to evenly distribute the product. Then you need to blow dry your hair straight. You finish by running hair straighteners through the hair. Now my hair is very thick (like stupid crazy thick) and long so I sprayed this about 15 times in my hair and followed the instructions. In wet hair, the spray is kind of tacky to touch but once dried your hair will feel very glossy and soft.
Now because my hair is so thick, I can never get it perfectly straight as you can see by the picture for day 1. That is as good as it gets for me. Also because it’s so thick and wavy, after one day of straightening and a night in bed, I usually wake up with a head full of messy frizzy curls. Day 2 shows that the hair is not still straight, but it is a definite improvement of what I usually wake up to the day after straightening. However if you look at Day 3, you can see that someone my hair seems straighter again that Day 2. I don’t know how it happened but it was definitely more improved. I found this product to be very good at what it does but maybe not exactly what it says on the box. I can imagine this would work well for girls with finer hair than mine so maybe I just need to add more of the product next time. Either way I was very happy to have even semi straight hair after going to the effort of styling it. I’ll use this every time I straighten my hair to get the effects to last longer than a day!
|Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme|
Lastly is my favourite product of the bunch and that is the Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Crème (€6.31). This crème can be used on all types of hair to smooth and moisturise the hair. All you have to do is simply pop a small bit of this onto your hands and work it through wet or damp hair. The product has some heat protection properties so you can either blow-dry (which is recommended) or leave to dry naturally. I really like this product. Generally after I blow-dry, my hair can be left frizzy and sometimes a bit dry so that’s where my hair oils, like L’oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, comes in to work. However after using this I found my hair was really smooth and super silky. Even my boyfriend pointed out how soft my hair felt, so that’s something! I am really impressed with this product and would recommend it to anyone who has trouble fighting the frizz.
Phew! So that was a super long review and I congratulate you if you've gotten this far! Have you tried the Frizz-Ease range? If so, what did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!
Bye for now,
