Hi guys! I’ve been wanting to share with you my holy grail hair rescue, John Frieda Frizz Ease shampoo, conditioner and extra strength hair serum. If you have thick, coarse, unmanageable hair like me, boy does this make life easier. I like to switch between the frizz ease hydrating (blue bottle) and frizz ease repairing (purple bottle) formulas in the range.
In a nutshell, my hair is like the naughty child of all hair types. I just knew, the moment I broke four hair ties in a row trying to tie it up, I needed serious hair management. Don’t get me wrong I love my hair, but… it’s a full-time job keeping it tame. 🙂
I’ll be honest, for years I avoided the John Frieda Frizz Ease (JFFE) range because I thought, ‘yeah right, it’s just going to be like every other product that doesn’t work’. I was a little gutted when I finally tried it and found it worked so well. I could have had nicer hair sooner! face palm
Why do I love it so much?
Growing up I was always so frustrated by the fact that shampoos and conditioners would work miracles for everyone else but leave my hair looking electrocuted. It wasn’t the products fault, it really came down to my hair type. I was once scolded by a hairdresser for not ‘warning’ her my hair was so thick when I booked my appointment. True story.
My hair needed a little extra something to smooth it out and not exaggerate its texture. It is naturally a little wavy, which I don’t mind, but once it gets bent in places it stays that way until I wash or straighten it out. Wire brush, anyone?
I avoid blow drying my hair because it just makes it worse, you’d get better results from blow drying a turd (just an expression, for the love of god don’t do that). I stick to straightening it instead, which thankfully is the one thing that works well.
So, the day I tried JFFE, it change my life. Goodbye horrible hair, hello beautiful manageable hair. With shine too! Wha! What magic is this? Humidity could be a bazillion percent and it will still stay smooth. It also helped it to dry naturally – quickly. For all those who share my hair woes, you know what a difference it makes.
My hair routine typically is:
shampoo (maybe twice)
conditioner (leave as long as possible)
generously apply serum immediately after shower
let dry naturally/overnight
straighten once it is completely dry (usually the next day or two)
I find this way gets the best results. If I jump the gun and try straighten or blow dry it when it’s still damp the result is not as shiny and smooth.
Here is what my hair looks like naturally. I avoided washing it for two weeks and survived by tying it up in a messy bun just to show you 🙂
It’s difficult to describe just how much of a difference JFFE makes, so ill let the photos speak for them selves. insert angelic music

Have you tried this hair care range before? What do you think? Are you as in love as I am? 🙂
