Advantages: It does the job
Disadvantages: It's expensive, and a little hard to read the small print
After my disastrous experience with 'John Frieda Sheer Blonde Styling Wax' I was reluctant to try any of his products again. With a little persuasion from my mate though, I went out and bought another of his products, this time with her recommendation.
What product am I talking about?
'John Frieda Sheer Blonde Golden Opportunity' that's what.
Costing nearly 4 quid from Boots, I was thinking to myself that it was another waste of cash. The tube only holds 125ml, not much there for that price. I'm really tight with my money, I only buy things of luxury if I really need them, but peer pressure won me over on that particular day.
The tube is clear with purple coloured cream inside. Apparently the ultra violet formula helps counteract brassiness and enhances my highlights. I couldn't see it myself. How can something a light shade of purple do that to blonde hair is beyond me.
Anyway, I've gave it a go and here I am to tell you about it?s affects on my pride and joy.
The cream itself is thick, not smelling of anything in particular, it doesn't smell of chemicals or perfume. All I can smell is the plastic of the tube.
After washing my hair, I followed the tiny printed instructions on the back. I dried my hair and applied a pea sized amount to the palm of my hand, and rubbed them together to create a thin film. Then I raked it through my hair, and smoothed the ends into place.
I looked in the mirror and got the fright of my life! Oh, my hair looked mighty fine, it was the sheer ugliness of my face that nearly gave me a heart attack. Anyway, a dab of concealer, and a little tinted lip gloss solved that, then I could concentrate properly on my hair.
It looked canny good, well as good as it was ever going to be. I'm not really good with styling hair really, that's why it's scalped. Anyway, forget about the styling, that's not what this stuff is inten
ded for. It's supposed to take the brassiness out of
my hair and give it a ultra glossy finish. Well it certainly did just that. No complaints at all from me, not this time anyway. It is so simple to use, especially if you have very short hair like me, don't use to much off it though because my hair went a little greasy. Remember you can always add but you can't take away. Crikey, that was very feminine, that from a painter and decorator. Throws stereotypes right out of the window. Ha!
It lasted throughout the day, a sweaty marathon christmas shopping in a packed city centre, and I still got chatted up in the pub. I'll be buying it again if it has that affect. Ha!
Apparently it works just as good on long hair too, my mate has hair down her back and uses this all the time. Her hair always looks nice, well it can't be hard when she's standing next to me.
I recommend it, truly I do. Although shop around, I'm sure you could get it cheaper than 4 quid somewhere.

Oooh! Nearly forgot, don't get it on your clothes, it stains. I've tried all ways to get it off a white top of mine, and it doesn't come off.
Oh aye, and don't forget to use a magnifying glass to read the instructions on the back, the print is tiny, could just be my eyes though.
