I find that trying to find good products for curly hair difficult. It either doesn''t do what I want and my hair is fluffy or frizzy or the hold is too strong and my hair is crunchy. I was enjoying the Got2B Sexy spray mousse but felt that it was running out quickly and I was covering my room in mousse. So I thought I would give the frizz ease mousse a go. I have used them years ago but when I started to pay for things myself I tended to go for things I could find cheaper. Frizz Ease is a range of products from John Frieda. They are well known and it is considered to be a reputable brand by many. While not the most expensive product out there it is not the cheapest either. It was more than I usually want to spend. But I am learning that I need to for my hair. I have found that this mousse works really well with my hair. I don''t need too much and it curls up nicely. My curls are defined without being crunchy and rock hard. It has calmed my frizz. Maybe not completely but I have noticed a considerable improvement. Impressed with the results of this mousse. The product can be found from many health and beauty stores for just over five pounds for two hundred mls. This has lasted me over two weeks so far, with a little bit still to go. I would recommend this product to my curly haired friends. It has provided me with noticeable results especially in regard to frizz. Worth the price. I am going to give the shampoo and conditioner a go next.
My hair, when left to its only devices after washing, is naturally quite wavy on the verge of being curly. I prefer having straight hair so do straighten it on an almost daily basis. Some days I just cannot be bothered so after washing my hair I let it dry a little and then add mousse so it doesn't look like a wavy mess. I'm currently using this John Frieda mousse.
The John Frieda fizz ease curl reviver corrective styling mousse (what a mouthful of a product name!) is available to purchase from Supermarkets and places such as Superdrug and Boots. I bought mine for my local Asda as part of a 3 John Frieda products for £10 promotion; it normally has a full price of £5.
The packaging fits in with the rest of the frizz ease range well, being mainly silver in colour with some purple text. It contains all of the normal information found on these kind of products, how to use and ingredients for example. There is a removable lid at the top, when this is taken off you are met with the normal nozzle you find with mousse products.
When I use this I normally give the bottle a little shake then press the button to get the mousse out of the nozzle. It makes the normal sounds when it comes out and it comes out evenly with no small spray particles at the start or end of pressing the button. It comes out evenly and is bright white in colour, the scent isn't too artificial or chemical smelling like you can get with cheaper mousses which is always good. It doesn't have any kind of scent to it really, just a clean smell.
I tend to apply the mousse to damp hair by turning my head upside down then scrunching it into the ends, then turning back upright and scrunching again to make sure it's applied evenly. I find that it defines my curly/wavy mess into neat slight curls and it doesn't take much effort at all. It's definitely an easy way of styling my hair when I can't be bothered to blow dry and straighten it. The mousse dries nicely and doesn't leave that dry, crispy feeling like other mousse's I have used have done and it doesn't give an overly wet appearance either.
As a hair mousse to use occasionally, I think this one is fantastic and would definitely recommend it. It defines curls and waves, easy to apply and doesn't leave hair feeling crisp and horrible.
In my opinion this product is one of the best for curly hair . I have natural curly hair but it is Very frizzy and hard to manage . After trying many products which didnt work i seen this on offer and decided to give it a go , i used a handful of the mousse and massaged it into my scalp and hair , it had a lovley fresh scent to it , I then went on to blowdry with my diffuser . When i finished drying my hair and looked in the mirror i was seriously amazed my hair was full of bouncy curls with NO FRIZZ in site. My hair looked so glossy and healthy I was so pleased and the bouncing frizz free curls lasted all day .I think this product is definatly value for money and I would certainly reccomend too anyone seriously my hair went from dull and frizzy curls to sleek glossy bouncy curls .
So please try it you wont be dissapointed .
I have naturally curly hair, which is about halfway down my back in length, so am always on the lookout for products to help me control what can be a bit of an '80s mad mop type hairdo at times! I use several products in the Frizz Ease range, and have done for about 15 years or so now, so when I popped into Boots to top up my Frizz Ease shampoo and conditioner and saw they had a 3 for 2 offer on the range, I thought I would give this a try.
The packaging is typical of the range really; good quality and durable, but not the prettiest on the shelf. I never have been a particular fan of the packaging design, but this is purely aesthetic rather than the packaging not doing what it is designed to! The chrome bottle is sturdy, and doesn't dent if dropped (yes, I have dropped it onto my wooden floors, so speak from experience)! The top is comfortable to press, and doesn't break off like some other mousse brands I have tried, although John Frieda (along with just about any other mousse manufacturer) still don't seem to have yet solved the problem of a small amount of mousse continuing to come out after the button is no longer depressed!
The mousse itself is very dense, which is great as it means that if you need to use a fair bit on longer hair such as mine, you can easily press a golf ball sized amount into your hand without fear of it running over the edges! It spreads smoothly through the hair, without tendency to "split" as some mousses I have tried have done; this makes even application easy even over longer length hair.
The quality of the product means that only a relatively small amount is required to achieve the desired results, and because of this it is also easy to avoid the dreaded "crispy hair" which can sometimes be the downside of some brands of mousse! It holds the hair whilst still leaving it bouncy and natural looking, a definite big plus!
Another bonus is that the mousse actually smells nice, unlike some I have tried which smell very "chemically" and artificial. It does have a slight chemical fragrance when it first comes out of the container, but on the hair this quickly fades away, leaving a "clean" scent, which I honestly think would be equally suitable for both men and women. If anything, it is reminiscent of washing powder or something like that, rather than being overly girly as some hair products can be!
I have tried using this product on damp hair which I have, on alternate occasions, left to air dry and also used a hairdryer on. Because of the length of my hair, the curliest it really gets is basically a "spiral perm" type look, which was easily achieved with this product by using a hairdryer on my hair whilst "scrunching" and holding my head upside down! On air dried hair, the curls were still very well defined and defintely a curl rather than a wave. This did surprise me a little bit, as again due to its length, my hair can end up with some vaguely wavy bits and other bits fairly curly if left to dry without any product on. The mousse definitely helped to "tighten" the curls and give a much more balanced overall effect.
I was also pleased with the frizz reducing properties of the mousse; I used it before going out to a party one evening, and even after several hours in a fairly small, packed and humid environment, there was still no sign of frizz on my curls. The holding properties are also great, as even after all that time the curls stayed as tight as they were when I had left the house for the evening.
I do have a couple of small moans about the product; I tend to get small frizzyish bits of hair sticking out if I tie my hair up, and despite putting on a fairly liberal amount to damp hair, then tying up, it failed to rectify this problem, so I would still use an alternative product for this. Also, whilst it is undoubtedly less drying on the hair than some other brands I have tried, it seems to me to still dry the hair out a bit, despite the claim on the packaging that it, "hydrates natural curls and waves", so I would in all honesty be reluctant to use it on a daily basis, and would reserve it for nights out or occasions when I wanted to wear my hair down and be reassured it would remain frizz free!
As a premium product range, this mousse is a bit more expensive than some other brands, but for curly hair I have yet to find a mousse which has produced better all round results.
I bought this Frizz-Ease curl reviver after having my hair permed again and wanting a product that would bring out the bounce in my hair after washing it. I'm quite impressed with it as there is a noticeable difference in the curliness of my hair when I use the product, even though it was permed at least 4 or 5 months ago now.
The product itself is in a 200ml metal bottle with a top that can be pressed to make the mousse come out. You only need a little bit with each application as it goes a long way, and i'm still on the same bottle that I bought months ago.
The formula claims to be non sticky light, something which I can definitely vouch for. I've had some terrible mousses in the past and this one is so light you can barely feel it in your hair. You can brush your hair after using it and it still feels clean, unlike some products i've had where your hair feels terrible after use.
There are so many ways you can use the mousse with so many results. It can be used on dry hair when it looks dull and flat to give it that little extra life and lift. It also looks great used on damp hair and left to dry naturally, for some subtle waves. For more noticeable curls it can be used after washing before blow drying to really give you bounce.
My favourite way to use this product is when i'm using hair rollers - adding some mousse to each section of hair before putting the roller in really gives you extra lift to your finished hair.
The only fault I could give this product is that when you press some mousse out of the bottle, it is quite runny at first until it springs up into masses of foam.
Other than that, it is an absolute steal at £4.60 from Boots, Superdrug and most supermarkets.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Corrective Styling Mousse!
I used it on damp hair and then let my hair dry naturally a bit then used the hair dryer and it worked quite well. I had some wave, curl and volume to my once poker straight hair! So I carried on using it but after using it a few times I soon noticed that my hair was getting quite dry and straw like! I don't know if it was the mousse or something else but it only started when I used the mousse.
So after leaving my hair recover I found a easier way to make my hair perfectly wavy/curly with out the use of hair drying products or heated appliances such as hair dryers or straighteners! What I do is:
* Wash hair with your normal regular shampoo and then condition well then make sure you rinse your hair well too, as the conditioner can make your hair greasy and heavy if you don't wash it away well enough.
* If you have to go to work or college or university in the morning (Like I do) then you should do this in the evening - I do this at about 7/8.
* Then slightly towel dry hair
* Smooth on a tiny amount of a overnight treatment balm on your hair - such as Umberto ginannini over night beauty mask which smells really nice - this will make your hair really smooth and soft in the morning
* To give your hair a really nice smooth natural wavy/curl I then twist my hair quite tight and neat into a bun - but not right on top of your head or you will get a kink on the under neath side of your hair
* Then squeeze out some of the excess water from the bun by putting a towel in your hand, cupping the bun and then collecting the water in the towel
* I then wait for about two hours which gives me time to do other things with out getting my hair in the way!
* Then just before I go to bed I take my hair out of the bun and put a little extra balm on and then sleep with slightly slightly damp hair (Not wet) and then in the morning I have really bouncy holly wood waves!
* I just then put some smoothing or shaping balm on my hair such as KMS shaping balm and then some hair spray!
A good product for thin hair but in my experience it can make your hair dry and some what straw like! It is about £4 - 5 in the supermarkets such as ASDA and tesco but your can also buy it from boots for about the same price. I am now have long wavy/curly hair and I like it! :D It is quite can also make my hair a little bit sticky sometimes which is also not good.
Thank your for reading my review
I used to use this on my hair every single day as my hair used to be very frizzy, wild and difficult to tame. My friend recommended this to me as she used it on her hair which was quite similar to mine. After the first time of using it, I began using it every day as it worked wonders on my hair.
The metal tin bottle has a pump top so you just pump whatever you need into your hand and the foam seems to expand as soon as it comes out of the bottle. For curly hair it worked better for me if I scrunched my hair by having a little bit of mousse in my hand and then just scrunching parts of my hair with that hand. This means that the mousse would go on all parts of the hair as well as making my hair curlier.
The mousse is a little like hairspray as it holds the curls in place and this lasts most of the day. It makes the curls more defined and gives them a bit more of a bounce. It lessons the frizz by making the hair kind of stick together but it doesn't make it feel at all sticky though.
The only thing I don't like about this is that it makes your hair hard and crispy. I used to like this texture in my hair as I would play with the crispy strands throughout the day but now I like to have soft curls which is why I don't use it anymore and also because my hair isn't frizzy now either.
If you have frizzy curly hair and you don't mind a styling product that makes it a little crispy, then this is a great mousse to use as it controls frizz and makes the curls more defined and bouncy.
"Create sexy, soft, bouncy curls"
I know this product is made for curly hair but I bought it to try and coax my hair into being slightly curly!
I have the straightest hair in existence, all my friends who have to straighten their hair every morning are green with envy but I get bored of it. It would be ok if it curled easily, but I have tried every curling tong and product going but my curls drop out within an hour :(
So I thought I'd buy a mousse which says it's specifically for creating curls and 'restores bounce tired waves and ringlets'.
This mousse is in a silver metal bottle with a lilac plastic top, it looks pretty which is important too as all my lotions and potions are in a big open cabinet in my bathroom.
It's called 'Curl Reviver: Corrective Styling mousse' and according to the info on the back 'The result: Curls with renewed energy and shine' sounds perfect but does it work?
I usually curl my hair when I go out on a night because it takes so long I haven't the time to do it every day.
I have a lot of hair, its fine hair but there's loads of it and it's long so I was really hoping this product would be strong enough to hold those curls in!
So one night I sit down with my tongs and mousse and get to work, I applied a small amount to each section of hair before I curled it and then while it was still damp from the mousse wrapped it around my hot curling tong. (it smells nice too by the way)
After I'd done my whole head, which takes about an hour at least, I then applied a bit more to my hands and scrunched it through my curls. For a start, the hair I'd curled first was still curly which for me is a result on its own!
Hours later and my curls are still intact, another good thing is, as a lot of mousses do; this one doesn't leave your hair 'crunchy' and hard. It still feels soft and nice, which is good because I want my hair to feel good especially as the guy I've just started seeing seems to like playing with my hair!
A 200ml bottle of this mousse costs £4.48 at Boots at the minute.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Corrective Styling Mousse
I bought this a while ago, with yet another boots discount voucher (i love them!) and as my curls were a bit limp and frizzy at the time, thought i'd go for some frizz ease which i've used since I was little and is always good at giving nice seperated frizz free curls - so i thought I might as well try it.
Comes in a tall silver can with apurple lid and dispense, the same as the picture, except mine also says "with heat shield", a great added extra. I shake the can then hold it upside down a press out a large squirt of white foam, which has a 'john frieda' smell about it. I scrunch this foam throughout my wet hair then shake and leave to dry naturally. It is THAT easy!
I think this product makes my hair have nice defined bouncy curlas, especially combined with the scrunching action, and reduces my frizz dramatically which is really a live saver :)
The product keeps my hair soft and moveable but also keeps it still in a way so that it is not flying all over the place and losing its curlyness.
However, after a while I find that the mouse isn't as moussey (if that makes sense) and does not foam up when your dispensing it, but normally it foams up in my hand a bit, so its okay :)
This product is £4.48 for 200ml which is pricey, but look out for special offers like me, when I tend to stock up. I find that it has lasted quite a long time, I would also recommend this to girls with limp or frizzy curls as it is a great product.
I have naturally curly hair which has a tendency to go just a little bit frizzy when I let it dry naturally. As such Im one of these girls who is addicted to their hair straighteners and uses them relentlessly all year round
until it gets so hot that its too much of an effort to sit straightening my hair while dripping in sweat! So at the start of the summer I was faced with the dilemma of either straightening my hair in the unbearable heat or leaving it natural with an aura of frizz surrounding it. In the end I opted for leaving it natural yet I couldnt physically bring myself to leave the house without doing something about the frizz.
After visiting my local Boots store I opted for the John Frieda Frizz Ease range which specialises in reducing frizziness in both curly and straight hair. It comes in a hard silver can which is about 12 inches tall and has a clear plastic lid. In order to dispense the product you are required to shake the can and then use the press down white dispenser on the top of the can. The product itself is a white foaming mousse that when dispensed from the can immediately grows in volume and has a typical hair product smell.
Using the product is extremely straightforward: -
1. Simply hold the dispenser pump down for approximately 2 seconds in order to release a tennis ball size amount of the mousse.
2. Distribute the product onto both hands and then rub them throughout your hair evenly after which I always tend to comb it through to ensure even distribution.
3. After that Ive found the best thing to do is to tip your head upside down and scrunch your hair towards your scalp using your hands, this ensures you give as much volume to your hair as possible.
4. Let dry naturally for best results.
It really is as simple as that, the results are brilliant the mousse increases the curliness of my hair and also ensures there is no frizz at all. The best thing about this mousse is that it doesnt leave any hard residue on your hair as some mousses can do and the results do last all day and night do be warned though that it isnt magic mousse and after sleeping on your hair youll find your curls do flatten and decrease as with any product.
This product does contain some ingredients that are somewhat unique to it including a silicone formula which smoothes and boosts shine as curly hair can often lack this. It also contains panthenol and polyquaternium to revitalise tired perms (or so it says!) and restore bounce and vitality to curls Ive found this to be especially suited to my hair as after months of straightening I did find that my curls had somewhat relaxed. Its also alcohol free.
The Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse costs £3.65 for a 200ml can from Boots, the range is often advertised on a 3 for 2 basis so look out for these to pick up the product more cheaply. Ive had my can since the start of June and use it approximately twice a week and still have over half the can left so you will get a good 25 or so applications out of it depending on the thickness of your hair. So heres to curly and frizz free summer hair for everyone!
