“ Brand: John Frieda / Hair type: permed / What it does: Smoothes, „
Packaging had been rebranded as ORIGINAL FORMULA but is essentially the same product.
This is a little pocket rocket that tames frizz and is easy to carry around as it is only 5ml. I found this to be an absolute must during summer while travelling around or sunbathing, to quickly apply and it restores my hair to a more natural and sane look.
This lasts a lot longer than you may think as you really do need only a one pump of the serum to work through your hair, even long hair. The best advice I was given where serum is concerned is, never apply to the roots and the same goes with this.
I literally just sweep this over the area where the frizz is starting to appear and it calms the hair straight away.
I usually apply this when the hair is damp and find it is good enough to last all day, blowing drying helps create the hold.
For those who just want to sample this product before buying more this is small in size and price, £2 currently at Superdrug.
Maybe I am a bit hair obsessed, but I want my hair to be sleek, straight and sexy. Unfortunately my mane is more on the dry curly side. This makes straightening a nightmare as it tends to go bushy and stands out like a mushroom! My hair is also pretty thick so expensive low performance products are not wanted. I'm also not keen on sticky serums, waxes, gels and the like. They are hard to wash out and don't make your hair feel very nice! I hate spending too much time on my hair so this product is fantastic as it is really simple to use. You apply it straight onto damp towel dried hair. And then blow dry it straight. The results are great, soft straight hair without a hint of frizz! If I fancy curly hair I just comb the product through damp hair and then I leave it to dry naturally. This product is so great and you don't need to use too much so it is excellent value for money. The first time I used this more then one person complimented me on my hair (which hardly ever happens!). I no longer cop out on my hair by putting it up. I love having my hair down now! It smells really nice too, so thats a bonus!
Want gorgeous sleek hair but have the misfortune of being born with hair that sticks out at the botton thus making you look like a christmas tree? I have exactly this problem. My hair is in OK condition but does need a little help to get it nice and sleek at the bottom as it is thick and stubborn. I also hate to spend too much time on it in the morning (I find there is enough to do before work just getting my face in a decent state before I ever begin to think about my hair!!) This procuct is fantastic as it is really really easy to use. I always keep it in the bathroom and apply it straight onto damp towel dried hair. Then, allthough it is a blowdrying product, I just comb the hair through to make sure the product is spead evenly and then I leave it to dry naturally. This product is so good that it leaves my hair looking like I have spent ages over it when really I've done nothing with it at all. It smells nice and lasts well as you don't need a massive amount; four sprays is usually enough for each morning. However, I don't have particularly frizzy hair so, if you do have very frizzy hair, you will probably need to use the product and then blow-dry aswell. The other great thing about this is that it feels totally natural, allthough it does do it's job. I hate the stickyness of wax and feel that serum leaves me feeling greasy but this product feels totally natural and light.
This product is the answer to every girl's prayers. Although I can imagine it doesn't work on extremely frizzy out-of-control hair, it certainly works on longer, colour-treated hair with damaged ends that tend to kink the hair giving a loose curly effect when it is least wanted. The serum is quick and easy to spray on, speeds drying time to less than half, and totally smooths the hair to appear thicker, and become straighter just by blow-drying as usual. The effects last all day long, even through the latest of evenings. It even controls the wispiest of fringes and most impressively, works against those dreaded cowlicks that many of us have. It is a reasonably priced product that smells great and actually shows you that it is doing something for your hair. I have used it for a while now, and I actually believe that it improves the condition of colour-damaged hair over time. It is a miracle for fine hair that tends to do what it wants, and saves me about ten minutes in the mornings, which is, lets face it, worth its weight in gold!
With thick permed hair which is often blow-dried straight I cannot recommend Frizz-Ease serum enough. Whether used while drying or applied when hair is dry this product gives amazing results. Having been impressed by John Frieda serum, I decided to try the '5 minute manager' which claims to reduce drying time by half while still taming frizz and adding shine. This product does not live up to the expected standards of other products in the John Frieda range and I was very disappointed. Drying time was not reduced at all and the product did not appear to tame frizz either. In my opinion I would give this product a miss!!!
