I have naturally blonde hair which I also sometimes have highlights put in, and I've been using this spray on it for years. It only costs £4.89 and it lasts me ages so it's a bargain really!
The bottle has a spray top with a little lid which to be honest is just annoying and I end up losing it pretty quickly. The spray works well and doesn't spray too much or too little or all in one place, it's a nice even spray it gives.
I spray it onto damp hair after washing then either leave it to dry naturally or blow-dry or straighten it, it works just as well either way. I only need to use a few sprays at a time and then comb it through to make sure it's covered all of my hair. It has a nice fresh smell unlike most similar products that are too strong or just stink of chemicals.
It leaves my hair feeling so silky it's almost unreal, and it looks amazing. It doesn't matter what shampoo or conditioner I use on my hair this always has the same effect, it makes it smooth, soft, silky, shiny and manageable, and it helps to protect my hair from the heat when I style it. The only problem is if you want to create a big volumised style then it won't be easy after using this because it makes the hair too silky and sleek for that.
I don't think it makes a difference to the colour of my hair but it does make it more shiny and keeps it looking really healthy even when I'm straightening it every day.
I got this product from boots as it completely catched my eye and i though it would be exactly what my hair needed. When i first started using the John Free healthy attitude spray (my first john freeda product) it did help alot and i could see the difference of a more shiny, softer look to my hair. But now there seems to be no effect at all and it's pointless using it, this is abit of a shame as it isn't cheap, so you do expect good results from it, but hey ho! I guess i was maybe using this as a protecter spray as well as a replenishment and that isn't it job, so if that is what you intend to do with it then i wouldn't recomend you go and buy this product! It didn't really have any effect on the shape of my hair when blow-dried either. I don't want to sound moany as this product for some people ovbiously works wonders but i'm not that much of a fussy person and yet i wasn't in love! xxx
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Healthy Attitude Spray
I have been using this for quite some time now and it is one of those products that I have and I only use rarely because I forget that I have it! John Frieda is an excellent brand but I which it was cheaper so I could buy more of it! My hair is Blonde so this really suits me and I love what it does to my hair. I took this on 2 holidays and basically took it too the beach and sprayed it on my hair after I had been in the sea as it made it soft again and replenished and also smelling really nice!
This is basically a John Frieda leave in nourishing spray for dry, damaged blonde hair. This is for all shades of blonde and it gives lighter and brighter blonde. This product is infused with essential vitamins and protein which helps to restore health and protect against split ends and also brighten blonde and boost shine. This is not only for natural blondes but also colour treated or highlighted which is great!
This comes in the form of a watery type of spray in a 200ml bottle. It is a cream sort of theme and on the front there is some logos and information and on the other side there is some useful information on what this actually does!
I used this when I was on holiday and I noticed that this made my hair a lot brighter and a lot softer and smoother! This definitely restores your hair as well as giving it a healthy new attitude. My frazzled ends were repaired and I should remember to use this more often!
The only thing with this is the fact that it was quite expensive, around £5.00 which is quite a bit even though it is very good quality.
I got some of this John Frieda Sheer Blonde healthy attitude spray because I was using loads of heated styling tools on my hair and it read on the bottle that this is a leave-in nourishing spray that also has heat protection worked in the formula.
This product looked ideal for dry, brittle bleach blonde hair that's had to withstand many curling and straightening sessions with heated tongs and irons. This looked ideal for me, I picked it up for about a fiver and I think it's for 250ml, which wasn't too bad, as I'd paid much more for other similar products at the hair dressers.
This stuff comes in a plastic bottle with a spray pump, the product inside is just a clear liquid that gets a bit tacky when you leave it on your skin to dry, so I'm thinking it would be best to comb through the hair as you don't want your hair to stick together in clumps.
This stuff smells just like all the other sheer blonde stuff and I felt that it left my hair feeling not as soft, that it coated it in some sort of harder plastic feeling layer... I'm not sure. Perhaps this is the heat protection kicking in.
Anyway, other than my hair feeling a bit different (less soft which is a bit on the downside), it seemed to have helped with heat protection and styling appeared ok. I don't know, until I see a more significant result with this spray, I'm not sure if I really like it or not.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Healthy Attitude Spray is a leave-in nourishing spray for blonde hair. It's part of what is now rather an extensive range of Sheer Blonde products which can be bought in beauty shops, drugstores and supermarkets. This spray costs £4.49 for a 200ml bottle.
This leave-in nourishing spray is created specially for blondes in need of hydration, and it's super-concentrated leave-in formula with essential vitamins and protein adds a boost of health to dry, damaged blonde hair, while providing a heat shield against thermal damage. Provitamin B5, honey, and wheat germ extracts instantly replenish moisture, restoring silky, shiny condition. It won't dull, darken or weigh down blonde hair, so it stays shiny and bright. It's suitable for all types of blonde hair, be it natural, dyed, or highlighted.
To use it you need to shake the bottle, then spray it liberally through damp hair after shampooing and conditioning, and do not rinse it out.
It comes in a gold coloured bottle with a spray pump on top. The spray top is easy to use and makes it easy to distribute the product evenly through the hair. I have shoulder length hair which is medium thickness, and I use between 5 and 10 sprays each time, depending on how my hair was feeling to start with. I use more if my hair has been feeling particularly dry or static, and less if it's been feeling ok.
The product has a watery consistency, and if you spray it on your hand and rub it in you can see it doesn't leave a lot of residue. It sells nice, but I'm not sure what it is that it smells of, I think it may be chamomile and something else, but I'm not certain. It's not particularly strong smelling anyway and once it's been on my hair for a few minutes I don't notice it anymore.
It's easy to spray through your hair, and I then comb my hair through to make sure it's evenly distributed throughout my hair. It works well as a detangler and my hair is easier to comb through with this than without. You can tell you've sprayed it on because it makes the hair slightly wetter, but as you use it on damp hair anyway this doesn't matter. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the hair, or leave any obvious residue, and once the hair dries you can't feel it.
Basically what this does for my hair is make it feel smoother and silkier, and stops it from going static. It works really well in this way, and doesn't make my blonde hair look dull. My hair looks really silky, shiny and healthy and it stays like that all day.
I'm not sure this has any real long-term benefits, it doesn't seem to have improved the condition of my hair, and I've been using it for years now, but I use it every day and the soft silky feeling always lasts until the next wash. I also sometimes use this on dry hair to combat static, by spraying some onto my hairbrush and giving it a quick brush through. This gets rid of any static and flyaway hairs, without making my hair look wet, greasy, or full of product.
I don't often use heat on my hair but on the few occasions I have blow-dried it or used straighteners this always seems to have done it's job in protecting my hair from the heat, so I can't fault it really. I think it's an excellent product that every blonde should have.
This product has done wonders for my hair.Ive never had long hair before and after growing it for a few months it was becoming dry,lank and lifeless and after using this leave in spray for the first time my hair became softer and shinier.It has really boosted the conditon of my hair and it looks and feels a lot healthier.It has increased the manageability of my hair as well and I have seen a reduced appearance of split ends too. Its made my hair feel so soft I cant stop playing with it!!!!!!!
I get my hair dyed blonde every eight weeks, and needed a shampoo and conditioner that would stop my hair getting brittle and stop it looking limp and dull. Other shampoos for coloured hair I tried didn?t stop my hair looking dull, and didn?t stop it feeling like straw after a month of getting it dyed. I saw the advert for sheer blonde on TV, and it said it could stop colour fading and stop it looking dull. I didn?t think it was possible as I thought I exhausted every shampoo trying to get my hair to my hair to look newly coloured all the time. It was buy one get one free in Sainsburys that made me try it, and I?m very happy I did! It lathers so you really feel that its doing something and you don?t need to use a great amount, so it lasts for longer than a lot of shampoos do. It also smells really nice! I use a lot of styling products on my hair; straightening serum, Frizz Ease, you name it, I?ve got it! Sheer Blonde says it removes ?product residues, which can leave hair looking dull and dark?. This seemed perfect. After just one shampoo my hair looked brighter, didn?t feel limp and straw like, and didn?t feel weighed down with products like it used to. I was surprised as I didn?t think my hair could be helped but this product is a miracle! My hair looks a shiny blonde now, and not a dingy blonde after a month of being dyed. There is one thing that is wrong with it though, you HAVE to condition with this shampoo, as I feel that my hair felt a bit dry with just using shampoo. So as well as using a deep conditioner I also use Sheer Blonde Conditioner. I think the price is reasonable, and there are always offers on Sheer Blonde if you look around. Any blonde should try this as its suitable for natural, dyed or highlighter hair. You will notice the difference immed
iately! I also recommend the conditioner as without it your hair may feel a little dry.
my hair has been dyed blonde now for about 5 years, and for the first two weeks of having my hair dyed my ahir was shiny, and after that until i got it done again it would fade. It would look constantly dirty and i couldnt do anything with it. i tried sheer blonde shampoo and condtioner and i could see the effects immediately. now my hair is shiny from the time i get it done til the next time. it has made my hair managable, and keeps me looking blonde, instead of a dirty blonde!
Everyone wishes that they had someone else's hair, but I have the sort of hair that no one would ever wish for! It's really thin, optimistically referred to as 'baby fine' by my hairdresser although even a baby would complain if they were lumbered with it. Its always seems flat and lank and it just won't grow. Of course I've made it worse over the years by committing heinous acts of hair abuse on it with a bleach bottle. Of course even that's Mother Natures fault. If she?d given me the fabulous hair I deserve I wouldn't have abused it, but as a result of being bleached to within an inch of its life, my hair gets frizzy and very rarely shines. So I've spent the whole of my life looking for a miracle hair care product and I had given up all hope of ever finding one...until now! I've used the John Frieda 'Sheer Blonde' range of shampoo and conditioner for a while, more out of habit than anything - they are neither fabulously good or fabulously bad so I stuck with them, better the devil you know and all that. The range comes on 3 for 2 in Boots quite often and normally I buy 2 bottles of shampoo and a conditioner but I was felling adventurous so I which is how I ended up with a little silver tin of gunk!! John Frieda 'Spotlight' is described as a hi-beam glosser and power detangler. I'm not sure what a hi-beam glosser is, but it sounds very impressive. It comes in a metallic silver/gold tin and although it only contains 75ml you only need a really small amount, so it lasts and lasts. You use it after shampoo and conditioner as a final finish on either freshly washed or blow dried hair. The product makes plenty of bold claims - the thing is it lives up to them! It claims to 'illuminate blonde with a crystal-clear layer of shimmery shine' - translation: it's a thick clear gel that you apply (sparingly) to blonde hair (natural, highlighted or blasted to
within an inch of its life like mine!) and it smoothes down the hair so it lies flat and reflects the light. It also claims 'ultra-light formula leaves hair sleek, tangle-free, easy to comb.' Translation - it's not sticky. You can use it on wet hair to smooth it out and untangle it (It is actually very good at this.) You can use it on dry or damp hair depending on the result you are looking for. Final claim - 'gives a hi-gloss, hi-glam finish to dried hair.' Translation - if you apply too much you look like you've washed your hair in chip fat! It really is an excellent product but you really only need the tiniest amount otherwise you end up with lank greasy hair and if you put too much on, it's really difficult to wash out. Not being one to particularly heeds instructions, I of course applied LOADS the first time I tried it (less is never more in my book!) and the result was the most horrible greasy mess. It comes in a pump dispenser and you need one pump for short hair and a couple for longer hair. I always apply it at the ends of my hair first and work it up because applying it from the roots is just another recipe for horrible greasy hair! Its suitable for any hair type, you just use more if your hair is thicker. On really fine hair like mike, its fine and it doesn't weigh it down. It doesn't make it look any thicker but it does look healthier which detracts from the fineness a bit. Although its part of the Sheer Blonde range and marketed at blondes my dark haired friends all use it now because it's better than glossers formulated for their hair colour and it makes their hair look great! (Same rules apply - less is more! In the case of brunettes even more so because too much can really make dark hair lank.) My only real gripe with the product is the lack of smell. When your hair is flat and shiny you want to waft it around like you were in a Timotei ad (or is that just me
...) and when you are flicking your hair, you want to be enveloped in a cloud of delicious fragrance (again, maybe just me...) but this product doesn?t smell delicious, in fact its just none descript which is a real shame especially if you use it in conjunction with the Sheer Blonde shampoo from the same range which smells a bit odd. Use it with a fabulous smelling shampoo would be my tip! It also doubles up as a hand cream because when you use it, it leaves your hands feeling really soft and silky smooth. You wouldn?t need to use a separate hand cream if you were using this every day. John Frieda 'Spotlight' retails at £4.99, but it does last for ages. It is also regularly on offer in both Boots and Superdrug. You can also buy it in supermarkets. It's well worth a try whatever your hair type. Go on, have your moment in the Spotlight...
I am a natural blonde, but if I don't keep up with the care if my hair, it turns a nasty orange color. It does not help considering there is a lot of iron in my water either. I know there are more of you out there with orange blonde hair due to iron or rust in your water. I have some tricks for you. First of all, I drench my hair with natural lemon juice from my local grocery store. Then, I either lay out in the sun or lay in a tanning bed. It may take a few times to get the beautiful platinum color you want. Then, to keep my color looking great, I use Sheer Blonde shampoo and conditioner that compiments my hair color (platinum to champagne). I works very well on my hair. I also contains natural lemon abstracts. Now, considering the lemon juice you've already used on your hair, your hair will now be dry and frizzy (lemons take the oils out of your hair). The Sheer Blonde will smooth it out and make it shiny and smooth. Not to mention, keeping it beautifully blonde and orange free. Some may experiece life-less hair. Well not to worry, John Frieda also offers Blonde Ambition styling mouse that works better than any mouse I have used. It does not weigh down hair nor does it make it hard or sticky. It gives me the lift and fullness I need. Well, here it is in a nutshell. I have used many dyes and "blonde hair" products, but this whole technique has been the best way to maintain blone hair. I will never dye my hair again!!!
Genetically Blonde! - Advantages: Washes out daily buildup., Different varieties for different blonde types. - Disadvantages: Easy to use too much., Doesn't take hair texture into account., Strange overripe apple fragrance.
I tried the Sheer blonde highlight activating shampoo for platinum to champagne blondes, and found that it didn't just lighten my hair, it also made it flat, dry and lifeless. I actually got quite worried about the health of my hair, until I stopped using this shampoo and went back to my normal one. -------------------------------- I am naturally light blonde, and like all blonde hair, mine goes a bit dull in the winter. This shampoo promises to instantly brighten and refresh blonde hair, so I thought I'd give it a go, hoping my hair would look "summery" even in the winter. I bought it from Boots, but it is available in most leading stores, and it cost me about £5. I don't mind paying a bit more for beauty products if they actually work. When I first washed my hair with this shampoo, I found it quite refreshing, with a very "lemony" smell. Hoping for instant results, I immediatley checked my hair in the mirror, but no, it looked exactly the same as before. I kept on using it, hoping that my hair would eventually look brighter. However, the more I used it, the more lifeless my hair became. My hair is normally very fine, but after using this shampoo, it looked awfully thin and flat!! I was also loosing loads! I was quite worried about the state of my hair, until I finally realised that it might be the new shampoo doing this to my hair and stopped using it. After just a few washes with my normal shampoo, my hair was ok again. ------------------------------------- This shampoo comes in two ranges, one for platinum to champagne blondes and one for caramel blondes. It contains camomile, lemon peel and sunflower seeds. Camomile and lemon peel are both known for their lightening properties. ------------------------------------ I have no doubt that my hair would have looked brighter had I kept on using this shampoo, and it could be that
I was allergic to some of the ingredients and therefore suffered adverse reactions. The only way to find out if it will work for you is to give it a go. I just thought I'd share my experience with you.
I'm sure everyone who reads this has dyed their hair from time to time, but then again, there's a quite a few dying virgins who have a great hair colour, and has no need to change it, well if you saw my natural colour, you'd know why I dye it! Think a nice muddy colour! I’ve been every hair colour there is, from black to blonde with quite few mistakes in between (think Pink, and a nice sage green!) I love dying my hair, but my favourite colour has to be blonde, as they say blondes have more fun, which I completely agree with. I feel much more confident with blonde hair than I do with my horrible drab natural brown colour. So not long long ago, I decided I’d go and get my hair cut and get it bleached blonde again, (at the time it was a nasty red colour). I went to my hairdresser and got it cut, I quite liked the cut, short and very shaggy, and it looked really easy to copy at home, which is always an added bonus. I also got my hair dyed a nice golden blonde. I was happy with the results, which makes a change because I usually end up hating what I get done and trying to hide my head until it grows back again. Anyway I came out of the Hairdressers and decided if I was going to keep my hair looking nice and tidy, I would need lots of new expensive products to use, basically just another excuse to treat myself and spend some money! I went into Boots and I was having a wander around when I spotted Sheer Blonde by John Frieda, which is a styling and glossing cream, Sheer Blonde is a range of products that is stocked by Boots and many other stores. It includes a variety of shampoos and conditions and other products especially produced for highlighted or bleached hair. I thought the glssing creme sounded just like what I needed to tone down the colour of my hair and make it smooth and easy to manage. It is called John Frieda, Sheer Blonde golden Opportunity, styling and glossing cream. It cost approxim
ately £4 from Boots, although I think you will probably be able to find it cheaper in other shops, such as Superdrug and Savers. It comes in a 125ml tube and is purple in colour. It contains Aqua, Glycerin, and Phosphate, amongst other things that I’ve never heard of before. I’m not going to be a geek and list all the ingredients here, as no one will be really bothered, unless of course there’s a couple of chemist lurking about. The gloss inside the tube is quite thick and sticky, and I didn’t like the thought of applying to my hair, partly because it was purple and partly because it looked so thick and gloopy. “Just a tiny dab of this revolutionary styling crème, applied sparingly to dried hair, instantly transforms even dull, dry, brittle blonde hair into smooth, manageable, ultra-glossy hair” The claims of this product are very high and I thought it would be quite hard to live up to the expectations it had made for itself. After I had washed my hair I dried it using a hairdryer. My hair always looks pretty dry when doing this and having bleached hair doesn’t help. Half the time I end up looking like I've stuck my finger in a socket, so I have to use ome sort of gloss of cream to smooth it and straighten it. I applied a small amount of the gloss to my hair. Straight away my hair looked greasy and wet. I gave it a few moments, thinking it may soak into my hair. It didn’t! My hair looked extremely greasy, although it took all the brassyness out of the colour and made it look very natural. I have since tried this product numerous times, changing the amount used each time, each time, the same result has been achieved, - greasy hair!! The idea of this product is very good and it worked well to tone down my hair colour but it made it far too greasy! I would only recommend this type of glosing creme if you have extremely thick and dry hair, and even then I
would suggust only using the smallest amount possible!
As a child my hair was so blonde it was transparent and so thin most people thought I was bald until I was three. Still, I grew darker as I grew older, but instead of developing the mahogany brown with natural blond high-lights the rest of my family have I inherited the lank, greasy chip pan blonde from my Dad. I rely on foreign holidays to sun bleach my hair and to stop me looking like an extra from East-Enders, but this year I'm too poor to go away (ahhhhhh). With growing despair on the darkening of my hair I find myself in boots one Saturday looking at bottles of Sun-in. I quickly regained my senses you'll be glad to hear and went off in search of something more suitable. It just so happened that on special offer was the John Frieda Sheer Blonde range. I had always been put off this product by the awful mock pop video used to advertise it, but a three for two offer is not to be sneezed at and I bought myself some shampoo, conditioner and hair spay. There are two varieties, one for Platinum blonde and one for Honey to caramel blonde. I think that my mop falls into the caramel blonde category. The sheer blonde range is supposedly formulated to rid blond hair of the chemical and mineral build up of water, products and the environment which gives it that dull, brassy and sometimes ever-so slightly green look. It promises to transform straw like hair to shimmering silk. I am more than a little sceptical, my hair is in quite good condition and has never been colour treated (expect for a few colour mousses). I was under the impression that this product was aimed more at bottle blondes with brittle damaged hair, but the bottle says it is for natural blondes too. I'll try nearly anything once and decided to give it a go. The Shampoo *********** It comes in a soft plastic bottle, a bit like a gel tube, and it's not the easiest of products to dispense. You don't need very much to get the
desired effect, yet it's hard to stop the stuff coming out when you're in the shower with slippery hands. Style seems to have won over substance as far as the bottle is concerned. It is the colour of runny honey but doesn't smell anywhere near as nice. Smell is an all-important factor in most hair products now days, hair has to smell nice as well as look nice. This product smells like the cheap nasty shampoo my mum use to buy for us in Kwik Save when I was little. You know the stuff that was about 50p for two litres and doubled as bubble bath and washing up liquid. I massaged it into my hair and it worked into a nice lather, when I washed it out my hair felt squeaky clean which while sounding good, actually means it has stripped my hair of its natural oils. I usually use the conditioner afterwards but in the interests of research I decided to try it without the conditioner and found that by hair was left very dry, straw like yet weirdly shinny. It's a good shampoo but the over-drying effects are not welcome, a conditioner is needed after every wash and this for someone who usually only conditions around three times per week. The conditioner *************** It looks like baileys (which I love) unfortunately it doesn't smell like Baileys, it smells just as bad as the shampoo. It also comes in the same crap bottle. I smoothed it through my hair after shampooing, it doesn't tell you to leave it in but I did anyway while I got on with washing my bits, and then I rinsed it out. I felt as if it took ages to rinse out because it could hardly feel the difference between the slippery feeling of hair with conditioner in it and the silky feeling of my hair afterwards. I eventually got neck ache and just stopped rinsing. I left my hair to dry naturally, as I always do, and popped into the bathroom to inspect the results afterwards, and what can I say: John Frieda is a genius. My ha
ir gl owed. Maybe it was the sun streaming through the bathroom window but there were actually strands of gold thread running through my hair. It was still at dark as it always was but with all the natural highlights brought out. As the day passed the highlights subsided and the effect was less impressive but still my hair was nicely conditioned and not weighted down the way it is when I use other conditioners. The Hairspray ************* In a standard 250ml hairspray container this also reminds me of the cheap rubbish my mum used to buy from the chemist. However this hairspray has the saving grace of not stinking like the 50p, metre long cans I used to see on our bathroom cabinet. It has quite a light scent, definitely a hairspray smell but lightly perfumed which doesn't linger in your hair too much. The hairspray is supposed to have a unique "non yellowing" formula and dries crystal clear. The container also tells me it's firm hold with all day staying power. Yeah, right. I don't ask much of a hairspray, a light spray just to keep the body in my hair after I've blow dried (a rare occurrence) I don't want any stiff, gravity defying locks here, and it's a good job too. The hold in the spray is practically non-existent, it isn't good enough even for my very limited needs. Maybe it would work better if I sprayed it more liberally but I don't think, for that price, I should have to. To give it its due though it doesn't yellow my hair and doesn't weigh it down, I don't wake up with hair you could fry eggs in and that has never happened with any styling product I've used before. The shampoos and conditioners are around £4.99, the hairspray around £3.50, which is incredibly expensive and I would never buy it unless it was on some sort of special offer, no matter how good it is. I have never seen it in any discount shops either. The bo
ttle doesn 't say if the product is tested on animals. As with most products, if you tend to be sensitive to beauty products to a patch test first. So in conclusion: The shampoo did the job but I was disappointed with its drying effect. I was very impressed with the conditioner, which I think is the best of the lot. The hairspray its just a waste of space.
Let me start by telling you what the aim of this shampoo is. It counteracts the blonde hairs tendency to dull and darken and makes your hair shiny and more brighter. It rids hair of darkening and duling residues caused by water mineral deposits. You can use this product daily and it does not interfere with toners often used in lightening the hair. The one I have is for honey to caramel blondes, my hair is coppery blonde with a few blonde highlights, but on most days it looks mostly coppery, after using this shampoo my hair looks instantly brighter, blonder and more in condition, I bought this on special offer in boots 3 for the price of 2 so i bought the conditioner aswell and a serum, all 3 cost £9.40. This is a wonderful product that does make your hair shiny, and definately brings out the blonde. i would say it wouldnt be as noticeable on blonde people, I think it is better for people with highlights as you can see more of a difference. The bottle is 250ml and you dont need to use a lot so a little goes a long way. It also has a lovely aroma and is honey in colour
