John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Hair Range

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.
