When I purchased Frizz-Ease Curl Around Shampoo I had to of course add the matching conditioner, it was only natural. Having naturally curlyish hair I need to really work to get it looking frizz free and perfect so I very rarely try it! Yes it can be done providing I use the right styling products and heated rollers but I can't just have my hair natural as bits go straight, some curls appear and a huge cows lick is at my fringe waiting to say hello. So if I want my hair to be curly or wavy it's a difficult process and therefore I iron my hair mostly lol
The Packaging Of Frizz - Ease Curl Around Conditioner....
It's a 300ml recycable tube, lilac in colour and it clearly states who it is by and what is and tells me on the front of the tube that it...
Energises & defines natural curl patterns for shiny, spirals; conditions, nourishes & maxmises shine.
On the back tells me that it is created with salon expertise, this revolutionary style-activating daily conditioner is perfect for wavy, curl frizz-prone hair. With it's unique curl-enhancing complex, it penetrates the hair and locks in moisture, re-awakening and improving your natural curl pattern. Also tells me directions for use, ingredients and contact details for John Frieda. All in all bottle looks very proffesional rather than cheap.
After shampooing, squeeze out excess moisture. Apply conditioner and distribute evenly, from roots to curly ends. Rinse thoroughly. Towel blot hair to remove excess moisture so curl pattern remains intact.
Well I have used this with the shampoo and with other shampoos not perceifically for curls. Best results for this really in conjunction with the matching shampoo.
The condioner is thicker in consistancy than the shampoo but still not too thick and not to runny, you do have to squeeze the tube for product to come out, if you tip the bottle upside down it doesnt oozze out everywhere. The smell, again is the same as the shampoo. Very slightly fruity but not in your face forrest fruits or anything, it is pleasant but not overpowering.
The amount of product you need is impressive. I have shoulder length hair and I found a blob size of 10p coin is more than enough. It glides through hair with ease and makes it as soft as silk upon application. You can feel your dry ends drinking it and really does feel luxiourious.
It rinses out easily but hair still feels like it has some left in cos hair feels incredibly soft. It's like leaving in some leave in conditoner, it just feels nice really. Looking in mirror after using the product, my hair definetely looks more defined and smooth but at the same time bouncy, full of life and my wet ringlets do look very shapely and not at all scruffy.
I always dry my hair on a cool setting to protect from getting split ends. I've dried my hair after this product in several ways....
Just drying with fingers after a combing. Rubbish. Straight bits, curls not curly, hair looks wild and loads of frizz.
Drying with a diffusser, no other products, same as above.
Drying with other Frizz-Ease Products such as the original serum or the curl perfector is much better. I have tried using just things like Toni & Guy heat protector and stuff with it and got slightly better results than listed above but the best way is really to use this before other Frizz-Ease products, as I previously stated This stuff is only the base to curly hair and you need some waves or curls to start with!
It does make hair smell pleasant and a little goes a long way. There is no doubt it does help slightly with frizz but as with the shampoo, for me these arn't the right products. I think that if you have naturally very curly or permed hair then this would be really good stuff but for me it didn't define what I had although it did eliminate frizz a little bit. This did make my hair shiny but no more really than any other products I use so overall I cant really justify the price tag of it for what it is.
