      John Frieda spray

      I have quite frizzy curly hair but it is not the nice type of curly hair, it is just quite unruly and not very nice looking. Its always a pain in this rainy wintery weather too as the slightest bit of moisture will just make it frizz and really make it look horrible so I decided to invest in some of this finishing spray to see if I could cut down on the frizz I was experiencing.

      According to an article I read, "Frizz-Ease is the U.K's number 1 brand for frizzy hair. The John Frieda hair care experts have spent years studying frizz, gaining an in-depth understanding of the many levels and types of frizz, and have developed customised solutions to make all levels of frizz more beautiful and manageable."

      I have used Frizz Ease Products in the past quite frequently, the main one being their original serum which I find works well on my damp hair but I wanted something I could apply to my hair after I had dried and styled it to see if it could give it a bit of shine.

      According to the information on the product, "Frizz Ease Serum Finishing Spray Glossing Mist gives a highly reflective shine and glistening finish to any style, any time. It is a non-greasy formula that revitalises shine in-between shampoos; smooths flyaways and frizz. This is exactly what I was looking for and so excited to try it.

      The formula comes in a little bottle and doesn't look to dissimilar to a regular bottle of Frizz Ease Serum. At the top of the bottle is a manual pump action spray so when you spray this liquid on your hair it comes out in a fine mist rather than as an aerosol. I like this as I think you have a bot of control over the direction you want the spray to go in although you do need to hold this quite a ways away from your hair to make sure it does come out like a mist and not just a targeted spray over your hair. I only use the smallest amount as I find any more and my hair can look a bit too wet and styled if you know what I mean.

      I really like the effect this spray has on my hair. I think it smoothes it down well and gives me a sleek look, especially when I have straightened my hair. I think it does help to keep it smoothed down throughout the day also and protects my style a lot better than if I had just left my hair naturally. I don't use this every day but now and again when I think my hair needs a bit of sleekness and I would recommend it if you are looking for a way to tame frizzy locks.

      A 75ml bottle costs £5.59 and because I only use a spray or two a time it is lasting me really well and I can see it lasting for a couple more months yet. A good product from John Frieda.

      A helpful professional quality product from John Frieda.

      I have long hair that is naturally wavy and which goes quite frizzy unless I get help from the regular use of serum products. I tend to use the thick sticky gel serums as I'm familiar with them but I ended up buying this John Frieda Serum Finishing Spray on one shopping trip when the store was out of my usual product. The hair treatment is described as a "glossing spray" which "smoothes frays and flyaways".

      John Frieda have a great range of products which I always find are of the highest professional salon quality and this I find no different. The brand hype up this spray by stating that it's "non-greasy" and that it takes only one mist of the product to control hair in between washes. Full information is written on the label of the bottle and this includes directions for use, ingredients and contact information with web address.

      The product comes as a 75ml sized clear recyclable bottle. This looks like a tiny amount but bear in mind that you'll probably only need a couple of squirts of this per use so it does last an awful long time! It comes with secure lid and a soft pump action button. The serum spray is dispensed as a fine mist from the nozzle but the spray tends to shoot forward in a thin pattern about 30cm long so you need to hold the bottle at a distance from your head for an even finish. The bottle is easy to use and nice and compact so you can even pop it into your handbag on a night out.

      The serum spray liquid is clear and looks and moves just like water. If you've never used this before it might be difficult to believe that such a watery liquid would have the same smoothing effect as a thicker serum gel but believe me it does! The spray has quite a sharp chemically fragrance which is quite fresh and clean but which catches my throat at the time of application. The scent isn't reminiscent of anything in particular but smells a lot like the Tony and Guy range of hairsprays. It's a straight-from-the-salon fresh smell that seems to say you've just styled your hair with a very expensive product!

      You need to use this on dry hair only. It will not work if you apply to damp or wet hair. You are advised to hold the bottle 15-20cm away from the hair and just spray lightly all over. I'd say the latter distance is about right and that you should only pump once or twice over the whole head before combing through. Less is more with this product and using too much tends to leave the hair lank and a bit greasy looking.

      The spray has the effect of calming and smoothing the hair shafts. The most dry parts of my hair aren't moisturised in the same way that a serum gel provides but they do look shiny and feel smoother. The spray awards a high gloss and shine to the hair and this helps to makes the hair look healthy and clean. It doesn't provide any hold or style like a mousse or a hairspray does but it can help by allowing you to brush or comb the hair more easily and therefore flatten down any loose ends.

      This spray is basically an instant fix of gloss and it helps to transform dry hair into a softer, more manageable mane. The brand are correct in saying you need to use this only once between washes. Basically, if you try and use this too often you will end up looking like you have oily, dirty hair so be very careful about over-use. Otherwise, it's a brilliant solution to frizzy hair. I'd reccommend this to everyone but would say that people with especially dry and damaged hair might prefer to use a gel serum which would soak into the shaft to provide moisture as well as providing shine. I find it a really helpful and quick to use product and I've had my bottle for quite a long time as you need to use so little. It has lasted a lot longer than any of the gel serums I have used so it's economically a good bet

      You can find this product at supermarkets and chemist chains like Boots and Superdrug.

      Recommended to finish off your styling regime

      i bought this product after developing a bit of frizz on my hair, most probably due to over-straightening. Usually i am wary of serum type products because i really dont want my hair to be looking too greasy so i approached this product with caution. However, it has to be said that this product really does work! if you hold it about 20cm away from hair and give a spritz then a very fine layer is transferred onto the hair which is just enough to tame any annoying fly-away hairs that one can get after straightening or blow drying. It really doesnt take a lot of spray to tame my frizz, i guess people with naturally very frizzy hair may want to try a stronger product but if you are looking for a slight gloss without greasiness then this is perfect! it really does just finish hair off nicely after styling and i like it so much ive added it to my repeat buy beauty products!

      Keeps hair looking glossy and smoothes hair when it gets a bit uncontollable

      I have wavy/curly hair. Most of the time I straighten my hair but sometimes I like to leave it curly. If I decide to leave my hair curly I do have to use styling products on it otherwise my hair is just uncontrollable! John Frieda has some great products out there to get the best results for your hair. I bought this serum finishing spray when it was on offer at Tesco - buy 2 get the cheapest one free.

      The product contains 75ml and it is a clear liquid that looks like water with a pump spray head for an even application. The product is basically designed as a gloss to finish off your style. It gives your hair a nice sheen when you use it. It doesn't make your hair look greasy though it just looks healthy. It also stops your style becoming frizzy so you can use it whenever you need to. You just reapply it throughout the day or night to keep the sheen and to stop your hair becoming 'fly-away'.

      I used to only use this product when I left my hair curly but I do also use it now when I straighten my hair. I don't use it near my roots, only at the ends of my hair and this seems to keep it under control. You also don't need to use much to get the glossy finish. Just need a couple of pumps to provide an even spray on your hair but you do need to hold it at a distance otherwise it can look a bit patchy. The product recommends holding it about 20cm away from your hair.

      A nice product to keep your hair looking healthy and tame. I don't use it regularly but it does create a nice finish to a style.
