Hi guys! I was very kindly sent some John Frieda hair care products to review, so I thought I would share my thoughts with you! I was sent these products, but this post is not sponsored and all opinions are my own.
The first thing I noticed was the packaging, which I really like! It is silver, pink and purple (two of my favourite colours!) and looks really clean, sleek and modern. It’s definitely something I wouldn’t mind having out in my bathroom, as it actually looks quite pretty. The Forever Smooth range is meant to work from the inside out, providing immediate resistance against frizzy hair. With continued use, they claim that the hair will become smoother over time.
As I don’t suffer from frizzy hair, I can only really tell you how I found the products, but not how they fare against frizz! My hair is naturally straight, quite fine and currently un-coloured. The shampoo and conditioner smell lovely – that really fresh, slightly fruity salon smell. The primer smells a little different, but still pleasant. The products themselves are white, with a thick, creamy consistency. The shampoo builds up a thick, rich lather (as it contains SLS) and gives the hair a really good clean. The conditioner is fairly rich, so a little goes a long way. It left my hair fairly de-tangled, and easy to brush through before drying (even without using my usual leave-in spray conditioner!)
I have mixed feelings about the results – once dry, my hair felt a little ‘sticky’. It felt like it had product in it; probably intentional as of course this is meant to keep hair smooth so will leave some deposits in the hair to fight frizz. Although it didn’t feel as nice as it usually does after washing, it was easier to style and actually held a little more volume, which I really liked. If you have straight, fine hair like me and are always trying to get your hair to hold volume, this could definitely help!
To use the anti-frizz primer, you are meant to apply it to wet, washed hair. Just one pump should be run through your hair from the mid-lengths to the ends (although if you have very long or very thick hair, you can use more). You then just style your hair as normal. I feel like this would probably be great for people with very thick, frizz-prone hair, but it’s not something I would continue to use as it’s not necessary for my hair type. I also prefer to have as few products on my hair as possible! Overall, these are really sleek-looking, nice-smelling and effective hair products. If you’re trying to fight the frizz, these could be the ones for you!
