I recently stocked up on a lot of hair care products from my local Asda when buying certain items made the price crash to just 38 pence an item. One of the items I purchased was this John Frieda Full repair perfect ends deep infusion.
The product is basically a hair serum that is meant to protect the hair from heat damage. The serum is available to buy from supermarkets and places like Boots and Superdrug. The product normally costs around the £7 mark but can often be found on offers such as 3 certain products for only £10.
The serum comes inside a red cardboard box which matches in with the rest of the John Frieda full repair range. The box contains all of the normal information that comes with this type of product. Inside the box is the serum bottle. The 50ml bottle itself is red in colour and has a pump action dispenser at the top.
To use the serum you have to apply it to freshly washed wet hair. I usually towel dry my hair a little first then squirt the product into my hand, rub my hands together then run the product through the ends of my hair. The serum itself is clear in colour and a little runnier than I expected, but this makes it easy to run through my damp hair without any problems. The smell isn't very strong and when you first start rubbing it between your hands you get a faint whiff of a fruity fragrance but it soon disappears.
One pump of the serum bottle gives enough product to run through the ends of my shoulder length hair. After it is applied it doesn't feel sticky or greasy in the slightest and I can get on with my normal dry/straighten regime after washing it. I do feel that this serum protects my hair from heat damage, it is already quite damaged as I use heat on it on a daily basis, but using this product gives it a nice shiny look to it and it feels a lot healthier. As the product makes my hair feel so good, I find that I don't have to use it after every wash and can get away with only using it once a week or once every 10 days without any problems, this also means that a bottle will last a long time.
I'd definitely recommend this serum from John Frieda's full repair range. Although it is expensive at full price, if you can find it on a 3 for £10 offer it is definitely worth it. It is easy to use, protects hair from heat damage and gives hair a new lease of life. The only thing that could be improved is making the fragrance last a little longer.
I have grown my hair from mid length to long and even though I get it cut regularly I suffer from a lot of split ends I have tried a few things none of which have worked. I always use a heat protection spray when styling but I still get loads of split ends. I was browsing in Asda where John Frieda items were on 3 for £10 I picked up my usual shampoo and conditioner and for the third item chose this deep infusion. On it's own it's around £6 so I had a good bargain.
The infusion comes in a red bottle with a pump action dispenser. The box states that the infusion will revive overstyled hair. Protect against heat damage. It contains a micro oil called inca inchi which is said to absorb into the damage ends rather than just coating the surface.
To use the infusion you need to apply one pump of the dispenser to the palm of your hands before rubbing your hands together then distributing evenly to clean wet hair concentration on the ends. I expected the infusion to be like a serum. However it was a liquid so I ended up losing half of it and had tp use another squirt. I found one pump wasn't sufficient enough to coat my ends so I used two. It left a thin oily layer on my hands which I had to wash off. The infusion had a pleasant smell it was quite sweet. After using the product I then dried and styled my hair as normal.
After ise my hair felt soft and shiny and my hair was a lot smoother which helped disguise some of my split ends. However I didn't find ot as good as other products I have used. I would rather use a serum which disguises the ends better. There is no real cure for split ends apart from a good trim. All in all this is an average product it didn't live up to the claims. I wouldn't buy it again.

~Full Repair - Perfect Ends Deep Infusion~
Deep Infusion is a hair serum designed to protect hair from heat damage (hair drying, straightening). John Frieda claim that this serum will improve the quality of the length and ends of your hair and leave it shiny. This serum is enriched with 'inca inchi' which is a micro-rich oil containing omega-3.
This serum should be applied to freshly washed and conditioned hair whilst it is still wet. It should be distributed through your hair whilst paying more attention to the damaged areas. There is no need to rinse this product out.
This product is presented in a red cardboard box. The actual serum is in a red bottle with a pump dispenser top and a plastic cap. The bottle has the important product information on it and can be recycled. This serum has a 12 month shelf life. I find the bottle to be attractive and very functional. It is also the ideal size for travelling.
A 50ml bottle can be purchased from Boots priced at £6.99. Tesco and Asda also offer it at £7.00 and both supermarkets have a special '3 for £10' offer on which gives a considerable saving!
This serum was recommended to me by my sister who pointed out I had quite a bit of damage to the ends of my hair. I am not known for regular trips to the hair dressers as it is so expensive even for a trim so I usually just wash, condition and put my hair up in a bobble - out of sight, out of mind! I bought this hair serum around 2 months ago and feel £6.99 is a fair price to pay for this sort of product.
Using this product is very simple. I like the fact that this is a leave in product - this saves a lot of time for me. The serum is clear and pumps well from the bottle. It is quite thin but I find that it spreads well through damp hair. It is important to have conditioned by hair before using this serum as it doesn't spread well through hair that has only been washed. I do not feel the need to use this each time I wash my hair - once a week is more than enough as it is quite an intensive treatment.
Two pumps of this serum is sufficient for my long, thick hair. I use one pump for the lengths of my hair (but avoid the scalp as it makes it slightly greasy) and one pump for the ends. I work it through my hair by rubbing the serum between my palms and spreading it that way. This serum has a subtle fruity scent which is pleasant and inoffensive - I quite like it and find that it clings to my hair.
My hair, in general, is pretty damaged from using hair dyes for the past 9 years and also straighteners. Applying this serum to nearly all my hair acts as a heat protectant and I prefer this to the heat sprays available. The serum absorbs into my hair and doesn't leave it sticky. I can blast my hair with the hair dryer (or let it dry naturally if I am not in any rush to go out) and then run over it with my straighteners without any issues.
This serum has improved the look and quality of my hair. My split ends haven't disappeared (but I really do need a visit to the hairdressers) but they do look less harsh and less noticeable as well as hydrated. When I use this hair serum, my hair feels soft and silky with a noticeable shine and is generally less dried out. Shampoo and conditioner alone do not give the same results so I am happy with how well this serum performs.
My hair is in much better condition than it was before I started using this serum. One 50ml bottle will last quite some time if using it sparingly once a week so this serum is value for money overall. It gives my hair a bit of a boost without weighing it down. It isn't a miracle worker. John Frieda claim that this serum will make my hair full of body but I do not find this to be true.
Thanks for reading :)
I've always had ridiculously soft, smooth hair but then I decided to dye my hair bright red and mix in some peroxide to make it brighter aaaaand ruined it. My hair was so soft I hardly ever bothered with conditioner and only used a bit of heat protection spray and literally no other products on my hair. However the state of my hair, especially the ends was horrible so I decided I really needed to buy some things!
I'd seen the advert for the Full Repair range on TV and had in my mind to try some of them out as they are aimed at over worked hair that's been dyed and styled using a lot of heat. However I wasn't too sure as I knew it was likely to be quite expensive. Most of the products range from about £5 to £7 and I was lucky to find them all on a 3 for £10 offer. I chose this, a hair masque and heat protecting spray from the frizz ease range.
This product is a lot like the frizz ease hair serums by John Frieda but the packaging is different and is used on towelled dry hair instead of soaking wet hair. You use it the same way as the serums by pumping it into your hand and rubbing them together then through the lengths and ends of your hair, mainly the ends. I usually find two pumps is good for me, I have fine-ish hair and imagine people with thicker hair would need to use another pump maybe.
First of all, I LOVE the smell of this so much, I'm guessing it's the 'inca' in the added inca oil bit which is what makes your hair so soft. I can smell the smell all day if I touch my hair but it's not overpowering at all. I love the feeling of hair after I have blow dried it, it feels so much softer and I can visibly see that it has smoothed my many, many split ends. The ends of my hair look so much better than they did and it really improves the overall look and feel of my hair. The bottle is very small (50ml) which I like as it makes it so easy to travel with teamed with it being easy to apply too.
The only thing I don't like is that I need to wash my hands after using the product or my hands feel quite greasy, I know this is only a little thing but I need the time when I'm in a rush in the morning! This is the only reason I prefer the usual serums as they are quicker to use and I'm using it on wet hair anyway. £6.99 is very expensive for this small product and I would only buy it as part of the 3 for £10 however it does last a long time as you only need a few pumps each time and it does improve your hair so I would definitely recommend it.
