      Reduces Frizz, but does Not Banish Completely

      As you may know from my other reviews, I have the most frizzy hair ever. I have tried so many things over the years and nothing ever seems to work. I decided to the give the well know frizz ease a try. I have heard good things about it.

      This needs to be used on either wet or damp hair and should not put on dry hair (it makes it look greasy), and you need to be very generous. If apply wet the product sinks into the hair and makes it feel thicker when it dries. This works best for me if I blow dry my hair straight. If I leave it to dry naturally it seems to have very little effect and is just a waste of time.

      Does this work?

      It works a bit. It definitely reduces the amount frizz, but it does not stop my frizz altogether. The more I used the more of an affect it has and I have to make sure that I cover all aspects of my hair, otherwise the difference is obvious. I used about six pumps on my mid length hair and I use it liberally on both the ends and the roots of hair. It will still get to the end of the day and I have frizz, but not to the same extent.

      This product can be bought from most larger supermarkets and chemists and is sold from around £3.00. Of all of the products I have tried this is one of the best. If you are happy with just a reduction in Frizz and you do not need it to go completely this is the product for you.

        Advantages

        • "Good for humid conditions "
        • "Sorts frizzy hair "

        Disadvantages

        • "Will make hair greasy if you use too much"

        A great serum as long as you use the right amount

        I have used the original Frizz Ease for years ever since it first came out as it really helps to keep my hair under control and looking smooth and sleek. I especially like to use it when the weather is humid as this can cause my hair to become really frizzy and wild. If you are new to using Frizz Ease then you should know that the most important thing about using it is that you need to be really sparing with the serum. Too much of the serum and your hair will just look greasy so less really is more when using this. You apply the serum to soaking wet hair applying it evenly through hair with your fingers but try and avoid the roots as this area can be overloaded and this is where it starts to look greasy. Once you have applied the serum you then just dry and style your hair as you normally would. I think this is a miracle worker when it comes to taming wild hair as it leaves it looking so much smoother and sleeker and with no frizz. Fly away hair is reduced significantly and you are just left with glossy and sleek hair. This is excellent for coarse hair as it will really transform it, the same with curly hair. I use this when I am wanting a straight and sleek look as it helps protect my hair when I am straightening it and the end result is smooth and perfectly straight. As I mentioned if you use to much of this then it will definitely make your hair greasy but using just a small amount won''t and you will be surprised with how glossy and shiny this will leave your hair. This costs 6.29 in Boot''s which is for a 50ml bottle. The bottle isn''t very big but as you need so little of it the bottle will last you for absolutely ages.

        Advantages

        • "it works!"

        Disadvantages

        • "none for me"

        A serum designed to combat frizz and give smooth hair.Made by John Frieda

        I have unruly, frizzy hair and am always looking for products that will help tame my unruly locks! I am a BZZ agent which means I get to test products for free in return for writing reviews and spreading the word- both good and bad about the products I test. My most recent box of goodies was a range of products by John Frieda designed to help control frizzy hair. I have chosen to review the hair serum, as this was by far my favourite of the products I tested.

        The original hair serum comes in a cylindrical, clear plastic bottle with pump action dispenser. Through the outer casing you can see what looks like a red plastic test tube. The packaging has been cleverly designed to look like it contains something scientifically formulated.

        The information of the front of the bottle claims that the serum has 6 effects against the dreaded frizz. It claims that it will *eliminate frizz, protect from heat, smooth hair and hydrate and tame*.Having been a bit under whelmed by the shampoo and conditioner in the range, I was not expected much from this serum. So was I right?

        The serum is designed to be used on soaking wet hair . The instructions indicate that you only use one pump and rub the serum into your palms before massaging into your hair avoiding the roots. The first time I used the serum I made the mistake in using too much and ended up with limp, greasy looking hair- you really do only need one pump to give good results! Once you have massaged the serum into your hair you are ready to style. It really is very easy to use.
        I really like the scent of this serum. It is difficult to describe but it smells clean and natural with no nasty chemical scent as with some hair care products. The scent is very subtle too, something I like!
        I tend to leave my hair to dry naturally although do occasionally use a hair dryer. Using the suggested amount of the serum left my hair looking noticeably less frizzy with a great shine. Best of all my hair stayed looking a lot smoother all day! I have had the same good results after using a hair dryer to dry my hair.

        John Frieda frizz ease range is widely available and the serum is available from Boots for £6.29 for a ml bottle. Overall I would highly recommend this product, if like me you suffer from frizzy, unruly locks!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A reliable serum that helps my hair to be more manageable

          I have naturally curly, long and thick hair and the one hair care item that I rely on to try and tame the inevitable frizz that comes with it is a decent quality serum. I have been using John Frieda's original formula 'Frizz-Ease' serum for several years and, despite dalliances with other brands and products, it is the one I always end up coming back to.

          Like most serums, Frizz Ease is presented in a practical and simple pump action bottle made from transparent plastic which makes it easy to keep abreast of the contents. This dispenses the serum easily and evenly, making it easy to release the desired amount without any excess. A little does go a long way but because my hair is both long and coarse I do need to use a lot more than the single pump suggested on the bottle to achieve any noticeable results. I tend to apply the Frizz Ease a pump at a time, making it easier to disperse this through my hair from about the mid-lengths down to the ends of my hair which do tend to be dry and prone to split ends. In all, I would estimate I use about 3-4 pumps in total when applying to wet hair after shampooing and conditioning. The bottle does indicate that this should be used on soaking wet hair but I must admit that I have always removed some of the excess water before applying the serum as I find it difficult to apply when my hair is literally soaking wet due to its length. It also seems a little counter-intuitive to use on soaking wet hair as I would imagine quite a lot is simply lost as the water drips away.

          I also use a single pump in the mornings on my hair whilst dry to help to tame the frizz, especially when tying my hair up as I just find it necessary to smooth the front of my hair back with a little additional serum.

          The texture of the serum is very pleasant, feeling silky rather than greasy to the touch, although adding too much can quickly cause an unattractive greasy effect. I warm the serum gently in my hands before smoothing through and find that it spreads evenly and easily throughout my hair and invisibly coats my hair without leaving behind behind any stickiness or sense of greasiness (providing I haven't gone overboard on application.)

          I won't claim that this works miracles or eradicates frizz, certainly not on my hair. To achieve a totally smooth and frizz-free look, I really need to blow dry and straighten my hair which is something that I only do rarely for special occasions. Simply using the Frizz Ease alone doesn't result in straight and sleek frizz-free hair but it does make a noticeable difference and I also find that my hair is much easier to brush through and to deal with. If I have only used conditioner and no serum, I really struggle even to get a brush through my thick hair and it feels much coarser to the touch as well, so this is worth using even if only for the difference it makes to basic hair styling on a daily basis.

          This serum only has a very faint aroma - a typical 'hair care' kind of scent that is unlikely to cause offence to anybody. I don't tend to notice the scent much even on application and it doesn't generally overpower a fragranced shampoo. The scent, if anything, is vaguely reminiscent of clean, freshly washed hair so is certainly bearable and could even afford to be a little stronger.

          Frizz-Ease can be purchased in a smaller pump action 25ml bottle but, given the length and texture of my hair and the amount I need to use, I find it much better value to buy the larger 50ml bottles. I also frequently keep my eyes out for promotional offers on this larger size, frequently buying it as part of a 'three for two' offer at Boots or for a discounted price from Morrisons. At full price, this costs over the £6 mark so it is well worth looking out for offers, although I do find that the bottles last for a couple of months even with daily application.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A five star product

            I have never been exactly kind to my hair over the years. I've bleached it, dyed it, back combed and permed it and then there is they day to day blow drying, straightening and styling so it is understandable that it is less than perfect condition. I have tried shampoos and conditioners and many lotions and potions to help sooth my split and frizzy locks but nothing has hit the mark quite like Frizz ease serum by John Freda.

            The product itself comes in a clear bottle with a pump action top and this is packaged within a silver cardboard box. The packaging it very contemporary and does stand out on the shelf. At round about £6 for a 50ml bottle it is reasonably priced, as a little goes a long way and this will last you many applications.

            The liquid within the bottle is clear and is of a good consistency, not overly runny and not too gloopy either. It can be applied to both wet and dry hair but I find best results are achieved on wet hair. It has a built in heat protection meaning you don't need a separate product for this purpose. My hair is down past my shoulders and I find 2-3 pumps is more than enough for my needs. Simply dispense product and apply to lengths on hair and comb through before styling as usual.

            Without Frizz-ease I find the ends of my hair take on an almost fluffy appearance and my hair feels course, however with it my hair is soft, smooth and shiny, and as the product is very light I don't feel that it weight my hair down or leaves it sticky and greasy looking like some other things I have tried. It is also great on dry hair for smoothing down the little wispy 'baby hairs' around my hairline.

            This is one of my favourite hair care products and I couldn't be without it now. It is one of the very few out there that actually does live up to the claims it makes.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good product to tame your frizz

            Since I do have brittle and frizzy hair I am always on the lookout for new products to test and try. The moment I read a few compliments about a particular product from a hair stylist, I immediately go out and purchase that product. I heard that a hair stylist swears by John Frieda's frizz ease hair serum and I bought it from boots for 5 pounds and 99 pence. Not too cheap but a lot less that the other high end products that are recommended by celebrity hair stylists.
            I was feeling bitter sweet towards my purchase as I've tried many other hair serums like this and they were just ok, not the best (other than Moroccan oil). I've now been using this product on and off since the winter season began and although I haven't noticed a change in the texture and quality of my hair ultimately, I definitely think it works for me in the sense that it completely smoothes out my hair and gets rid of frizz when I apply it, until I wash it again.
            I pump two or three squirts out into my hands and rub it in the ends of my damp hair. It tames the frizz, gives it a very healthy shine and leaves it feeling a lot smoother. I feel a little better knowing that my hair is coated with a protective layer which protects it from external damage. When I apply this hair serum my hair definitely feels nourished, healthier and quite silky. It also makes my hair much more manageable and easier to comb through or brush.
            It comes in a small pump spray bottle with clear gel inside. The consistency of the gel is a little runny which helps it smooth onto the hair evenly. It doesn't leave my hair feeling oily at all which is great and the fact that it is quite lightweight is also a bonus. It doesn't feel heavy on my hair or weigh it down like some others do.
            Over all I am happy, not over the moon, just happy with my purchase and until I can find a better and affordable option, I will continue using this. I am just looking for something that will improve the quality of my hair inside out not just coat the outer layer like this hair serum. Until I find a miracle product, this is one of my go to's.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great for creating shiny, silky looking hair. Not a moisturiser

            I have very long hair and love to add an extra gloss and shine to the mid/ends of my hair. This serum is perfect for creating these shiny and glistening tips. It cost me around £5.

            APPEARANCE
            The tube itself is transparent and shows the serum. It's small, discrete and subtle and comes inside a small, white box. I prefer this to brash looking cosmetics as a group of similar products look nicer together as a collective in my bedroom or bathroom. The serum itself is a slightly off-white with a glistening finish. When applied to the hair you see no sign of serum and simply see the glisten.

            SCENT
            The serum has a light scent which is feminine, sexy and clean. It has a 'posh salon' smell which makes the product feel very luxurious. It also matches much of the John Frieda range.

            DOES IT WORK?
            YES! I was concerned the serum would make my hair look quite greasy but this is definitely not the case. A small pea-sized amount goes a long way and moisturised the tips of my hair well. I would definitely recommend straightening your hair and using this serum, as this is when the serum's added shine really comes out to play! You can apply this to your hair just out of the shower, whilst drying or once dry - all create a great glistening effect. I would say though - this is not the best for moisturising. It is best for glistening hair and making your tips super shiny.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Amazing product, wish I'd used it sooner.

            I own quite a few of the John Frieda products and I use them on a regular basis and was looking to buy more but hadn't got round to it as they are slightly too expensive for me sometimes but are always on a 3 for £10 offer somewhere.

            The other day my mum came back from Morrisons with this and a few other bits as they had a half price offer on all the John Frieda Frizz Ease range so they were only about £2.50- £3 each! Usually most items are about £5-£7 so I was amazed at this and so was my mum which is why she picked them up for me as she knows I like the products. My mum didn't really know what to get for me as she's not into hair stuff like me but she made a pretty good choice with this.

            If I were choosing myself I probably would not have chosen this serum as I have always assumed it would make my hair greasy so I'm really happy she picked it up. My hair is very badly damaged as I have used peroxide in my hair and dye it red on a regular basis and blow dry it most days too. I use the John Frieda Dry Ends serum which is used on dry hair as my hair is never greasy with it.

            So, moving onto the actual product. It comes nicely packaged in an expensive silver box and the bottle is quite strange as it's very thin. It is clear so you can see the clear serum inside which is always great to see how much you've got left and has a rounded pump on top to dispense the serum. This is good otherwise you would be bound to use way too much! The pump also can be turned to lock making it easy to travel with as it won't leak.

            Directions of use say to pump into your palms and rub into soaking wet hair after washing, concentrating on the ends and use more or less depending on the length of your hair. This first time I used this I pumped twice into my hand which turned out to be a little too much (my hair is a little longer than shoulder length but is also quite fine) and one pump does my fine otherwise it's too heavy and my hair gets greasier quicker. The serum is a clear gel which reminds me of hand santizers as it seems to move around your hand a bit like jelly. When I used this I didn't smell it before applying it as I assumed it would have that lovely scent of all the other John Frieda ranges however I smelt it as soon as I put in my hair and I can not stand it. It smells horrid to me but the smell doesn't stay in your hair when it's dried to I put up with it and just hold my breath for the few seconds it takes to put in. You don't rinse it out afterwards and you can already the softness of your hair which is a great sign it's working.

            When combing my hair out the smell had already gone and I found it much much easier to detangle, even easier than when having used my conditioner or John Frieda hair Masque! I then blow dried my hair and the effect was amazing. My hair was very smooth and soft with an added shine, the first time I used this my hair was very flat though as I had used too much!

            I now use this serum most days instead of my conditioner as I find it much quicker because you don't rinse it out. Although I really can't stand the smell of the serum it makes my hair so much softer and easier to deal with, plus it saves time on my usual hair routine where I'd usually use my Full Repair serum on dry hair. I really recommend this product as it's a good price for such great quality (and often on offer!) and you don't need to use much meaning it'll last a long time. I would definitely buy this product again however next time I am going to try the Thermal Protection as it offers heat protection and minimizes colour fading because it has stronger UV filter.

            It gets loses a star because I really hate the smell! (everyone smells differently though, so you might like it...!)

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good serum that works well

            I naturally have quite wavy hair which if I just leave to dry naturally goes a bit of the frizzy side, I straighten my hair nearly every day in order to keep it under control, however just recently I have found that my hair isn't staying as straight as I would like a few hours after straightening it. I used to use John Frieda Frizz - Ease on my hair when I was younger but haven't used it for years, I was always please with how it tamed my hair so I decided to give it another go. I browsed the Frizz- Ease products in my local Superdrug and decided on the John Frieda Frizz - Ease Original Formula Hair Serum to see if it would help keep my hair under control.

            Packaging
            The Hair Serum comes in a small rectangle shiny silver cardboard box, this has the name John Frieda Frizz - Ease written at the top in dark purple writing and Original Formula Hair Serum written just below in a red and grey writing, this is then repeated in a second language.
            In the middle of the box is a rectangle window cut out which allows you to see the bottle of hair serum inside, right at the bottom of the box is a picture of a woman showing her hair before using the serum and then what it would look like curly after using it and what it would look like straight after using it, it also states that this is suitable for medium to course frizzy hair.
            The back of the box has the words Hair Serum written in large letters across the box in black writing and it is repeated in a second language, the other product information on the back of the box consists of the ingredients and the directions for use, again repeated in a second language, there is not a huge amount of product information on the back of the box but it does tell you what you need to know.
            The Frizz - Ease Hair Serum comes in a small clear plastic bottle, it has a silver plastic pump on the top which is covered with a clear plastic lid, this simply clicks on and off. There is a clear label which goes around the whole bottle, this contains pretty much the same information as the box including the name of the product on the front of the bottle in purple and red writing and on the back is the directions of use and the ingredients. The bottle sits inside a clear plastic tray inside the box to hold it in place.

            Frizz - Ease Original Formula Hair Serum
            The John Frieda Frizz - Ease Original Formula Hair Serum is designed to eliminate dry moderate frizz, it also repels humidity leaving your hair glossy and smooth, it promises to transform frizzy hair into either smooth curls or straight smooth hair, obviously depending on they style you want. The Frizz - Ease Hair Serum also contains heat protection which for me is ideal as I straighten my hair on a daily basis so combined with the heat protector I use I can confidently straighten my hair and know that it is fully protected. The hair serum is totally clear, it has quite a thick syrupy texture to it, it has a very light floral fragrance to it but to be honest once applied to your hair you cannot smell this at all. The serum doesn't have a sticky feel to it at all, in fact it makes your skin feel quite soft, my concern was whether it was going to make my hair greasy.

            Directions for Use
            As I have mentioned I have used the Frizz - Ease products in the past, however it has been a while so I decided to have a quick look at the directions for use just to check I was doing it correctly. The directions for use included
            * For best results use after shampooing and conditioning your hair
            * Apply to soaking wet hair
            * Use sparingly and apply 1 pump of serum into your hand
            * Rub your hands together and apply evenly throughout your hair avoiding contact with the roots
            * Use more or less depending on your hair length and thickness
            * Do not rinse out and style as desired
            I followed the instructions but found that I needed more than 1 pump of serum as my hair is long and thick so this would not have been enough at all, judging the amount I needed was a little difficult as I didn't want to use too much and make my hair greasy but I chanced a couple of extra pumps in the hope that this didn't happen.

            Price and Availability
            As I have mentioned I purchased my John Frieda Frizz - Ease Hair Serum from my local Superdrug, it cost me £3.99 for a 25ml bottle, I did think it was a bit on the expensive side as you do not get a lot for your money, however after trying it I did discover that it is excellent value for money, you do not need a huge amount at a time, I did need a little more than suggested, however even this did not work out as a huge amount meaning that the bottle lasts a long time making it good value for money.

            My Opinion
            As I have said my main concern with this product was that it was going to make my hair look and feel greasy, I followed the instructions and didn't put any of the product onto the roots of my hair, instead I rubbed it into the rest of it right through to the ends, the first time I used this I washed my hair late and couldn't be bothered to dry and straighten my hair so I decided to just give it a go, let my hair dry naturally over night and then straighten it in the morning, if it didn't work I would make sure I dried and straightened my hair after washing it the next time. I really didn't expect it to work or that I would notice much difference but as I straightened each section of hair it seemed to be much smoother, I continued around all of my hair and when I looked at it in the mirror I was extremely pleased with how shiny and smooth it looked, my hair looked so much healthier and felt lovely and soft to touch. This smoothness lasted all day, my hair didn't go wavy half way through the day as it had been but remained straight, I was so pleased with the results, I also noticed that the next day when I got up my hair was still pretty much straight despite pulling it back in a band during the evening and then going to bed, all I had to do was straighten the front bits of my hair where they had been in the band, the rest of it was still straight and that never happens with my hair.
            The most important thing was that after using the Frizz - Ease Hair Serum my hair did not look greasy at all and it certainly didn't feel greasy.

            This product actually worked extremely well, it is excellent value for money and lasts a long while, whilst I need more than the recommended 1 pump of serum it still lasts well.

            I will definitely continue to use this product and will be purchasing it again in the future, it really does what it promises and tames my hair transforming it into smooth shiny hair, this is definitely a product that I would recommend to anyone as it really does work.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I don't mind buying this one as I know it helps.

              I have long thick hair, which is also rather naturally wavy and prone to Frizz. No matter what I do to treat my hair I seem to get those flyaway bits round my hairline which makes me feel I look a bit messy.

              One item that I do find helps me stop this is John Frieda's Frizz Ease Serum. This is a fairly low budget option, costing £6.29 currently in Boots for a 50ml bottle of it, with the added bonus it is currently on offer at 3 products from the range for a tenner. I'd pay the higher price for this one myself, as it definitely helps add a bit of weight to my hair and stop it being so fly away.

              The product is a thick clear serum presented in a pump dispenser bottle. The pump is a bit sophisticated as it has a twist mechanism to open and shut it. This is great for me, as my little helpers quite often get it in their head to give my beauty products a bit of a squeeze or a poke, leaving me cross when lots of expensive product is wasted.

              One pump is not really enough to cover all of the hair I want to treat, so I tend to use 4 or 5 pumps of serum when I use this. It is meant to be added to your hear after you wash it when it is slightly damp. I recommend towel drying it a bit first before adding this as you are not meant to towel dry it after putting it on. The serum is quite thick and a bit tacky to the touch. I find it is odourless, and when I put it on my hair it does not look even more wet, and does not look greasy. I smooth this from my hair line towards the ends of my hair using my fingers, which I then definitely need to wash after. I do find the results of using this are apparent for a couple of days, but then I find that I want to wash my hair a bit sooner than I would have done without using this.

              Overall, this is a product that does work quite well for a while. I have given up hope a bit of anything permanently solving my frizz problems. The weather we have here this summer is certainly not helping me, but at least I look slightly sleeker thanks to this product.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Nice product if used carefully

                I have very thick hair which is prone to frizzing up, and my daughter has very curly hair so I tried this product as a way of keeping it under control. When I bought it, it was on offer at half price so it didn't seem too expensive although it does come in a tiny little bottle and you might think that you're not getting much for your money. That being said, I've bought it once in the last 12 months so a little does go a long way.

                To use the product you first need to wash your hair. Don't apply it to dry hair. After washing and before styling apply a tiny, tiny amount to your hair. I have shoulder length hair and I would use no more than 2 pumps. Distribute it through your towel dried hair and then dry as normal. For my daughter, I would use one pump and distribute it through her hair, then leave it to dry naturally.

                The product does definitely help to control frizz. My hair is much smoother when I use it, and my daughter's curly hair is gorgeous when we use this - neat, defined curls without the usual frizz. However, I can't emphasise enough that you need to use this product sparingly. If you put too much on it can make your hair lank and greasy and my daughter's lovely curls look like bedraggled tangles of hay. Not nice.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                The best product of it's kind, but use with care for best results

                The serum helps those of us who are cutically-challenged become smooth and silky....but only if you use about double the recommended amount. The instructions on the back tell me to use one pump of serum, but my shoulder-length bob needs about double that to smooth out. The pump is easy to use and the serum is a good consistency - it is viscous enough to dispense easily but heavy enough to stick to your hair even if it's wet. The packaging says you can apply it on wet or dry hair, but I find that on dry hair it sticks strands together and unless you're very careful, you can end up with greasy-looking areas. However, on wet hair it's great and it helps me to get a really smooth blow-dry and stops fly-aways when I use my straighteners. It's also a good product to have around if you use heated rollers as it combats 'velcro frizz'.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Great for frizzy/ curly hair

                I seriously love this stuff, it's a life saver for thick/ frizzy hair like mine.

                The serum comes in 25ml and 50ml bottles and it's a thick clear liquid that smells pleasant and inviting. The serum is around £4 to buy, although it depends on where you buy it from. I have noticed that the price varies from shop to shop. The serum comes boxed and it has usage instructions written on the reverse of the box. The serum can be used on wet OR dry hair and the small bottles are great for placing in your handbag and using on the go.

                The serum is easy to dispense and you only need a SMALL amount per application as a little goes a long way and using too much of the serum results in greasy hair! I usually use around a five pence piece sized amount and rub it between my palms before applying the serum to my hair. If I need more I will build it up until I have reached my desired effect.

                The serum is great for sealing split ends and it helps to make your hair appear sleeker and straighter as it battles frizz and tackles "rain hair", which isn't such a good look! It also helps to protect your hair from the elements.

                The serum leaves your hair feeling silky smooth and the end results are really long lasting. It also helps to tame curls and naughty fringes!

                Great serum for all hair types.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                This is a good product that works.

                I have thin, curly hair which is also very dry and due to this it becomes very big and frizzy after blow drying. There are so many smoothing serums available, but its hard to find one that doesn't make your hair limp and greasy after styling. I was hoping this product would allow me to style my hair less often, by letting my curls dry naturally.

                The john frieda range is renowned for its 'frizz ease' range and so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It comes in card packaging with a cut out so you can see the bottle. The bottle is clear so you can see the serum inside. It has a pump to allow accurate dispensing, so you don't end up using more than whats required. I bought this from boots for £5.99 They have offers quite often throughout the year on the john frieda range, like 3 for 2. In fact they have three for two right now in boots on the john frieda range.

                The serum promises to instantly smooth hair and add shine. It apparently contains silk proteins giving hair crystal clear gloss. The serum is to be used on wet hair after squeezing excess water out. It is not recommended that hair is towel dried.

                The instructions state to use two to three pumps of the serum, rub between palms and work into wet hair. The serum is a clear liquid that dispenses easily. I only use two pumps as my hair has a tendency to get greasy easily. My hair has felt greasy instantly when I have used three pumps of serum. I then blow dried hair. And I have got to say my hair was a lot more tamed. There was still enough volume in my hair and my hair was a lot smoother. However my hair still wasn't 'ready to go' as it had no definitive shape. Because of the nature of my hair (thin, undefined curls) I cannot say that everyone else will have the same result. I then straightened my hair as this usually smooths hair. I really liked the shine and smoothness of my hair after straightening. I also use the serum on styled hair to smooth down any stray hairs.

                Rbis product is probably the best serum I have used yet. It doesn't give me that effortless 'ready to go' hair, but for now it will suffice. This product is so worth the price too, as it will last you around 7 months. The only thing that is a concern is how good this product is for the hair, in terms of health. It may disguise unhealthy hair, but does it actually nourish hair. The smell is also quite artificial and smells of fragrances and chemicals. Its not a terrible smell at all, but it does raise the question as to what ingredients they use.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Unfortunately I need to use too much of it to make it economical for me

                I have very long, naturally curly, thick hair which has a tendency to get very dry and frizzy if I don't control it properly.
                I saw the adverts for John Frieda Frizz Ease and thought it was going to be the answer to my prayers. The before picture of the girl with curly hair is exactly what my hair gets like if I brush it!
                So I decided to treat myself, followed the directions for using it and didn't really see much of a difference, only around my hairline.
                The next time I washed my hair I used more of it and it still didn't make my curls feel defined and moisurised.
                In fact, the only way I could get my hair to look and feel the way the product indicated it would was by either using nearly half the bottle or by using it on my hair when it was dry. Unfortunately this made my, usually very dry hair, very greasy.
                I have friends with thinner, shorter hair that have used Frizz Ease for years and wouldn't be without it. But for me it is definitely too expensive for the amount I would have to use as a bottle would only last me two hair washes.
                My hunt for the perfect curly hair controller continues...
