I first came across the John Frieda range, specifically the Anti-Frizz Serum, when I appeared on BBC1’s Pointless Celebrities last year. The consultant who did my make up (which I loved) started teasing the curls of my extensions. My hairdresser at the time had curled my hair the night before and pinned it up, so when the pins were removed the curls fell and bounced beautifully.
I was a little hesitant when I saw the John Freida range and had even brought my own hair care range, however, I was pleasantly surprised with the product, the technique and the results.
A small amount – a very small amount – of serum was squeezed on to the palm of the consultant’s, she rubbed her palms together, ran her hands and fingers through my hair and THEN did the styling. The result, all fly away hairs were in place, my extensions looked silky and smooth. My own hairline remained very smooth too, even with the heat from the lights in the TV studio.
With this Anti-Frizz Serum “less is definitely more”, too much and you could end up with uneven areas of shine and a non-silky look, so shine isn’t necessarily the goal here. An even sheer amount massaged through the hair is all that’s required to maintain healthy looking hair and ensures minimal frizz.
The John Frieda Anti-Frizz Serum sits alongside my many hair products that I use for different occasions and looks. Wearing wigs, the Serum works well with the different grades of hair from Peruvian, to Brazlian to Uzbek, and a few of my wigs are coloured – burgundy, light brown, to ombre and even jet back – however the colouring and chemicals used to colour don’t pose a problem, the serum compliments the hair
Whilst in Barbados I went wigless but decided not to use any hair products at all, I just let the natural Vitamin D feed my hair.
John Frieda has kindly offered a package of Frizz ease products:
Frizz Ease 10 Day Tamer
I think it’s worth pointing out that this is not a hair straighter and can be used on curly and wavy hair as well. What it does do is smooth down the hair shaft so hair looks silkier and shiny as light can bounce of it more easily. However, it does make it a lot easier to get hair straight and stay that way when used with a hairdryer and/or straighteners.
The 10 Day Tamer is a pre-shampoo treatment that’s applied on dry hair for 10 mins. You then rinse and shampoo and condition as normal.
Frizz Ease Forever Shampoo
This unique formula binds the protein inside your hair strand to help regulate the moisture content of your hair, preventing it from absorbing moisture from the environment that can lead to swelling and misalignment of the hair fibers, causing frizz. It’s also formulated with pure coconut oil that works deep inside the hair to help eliminate frizz at the core. Your hair is left with overall added control, style, maintenance and manageability.
Frizz Ease Forever Conditioner
With ground-breaking Frizz Immunity Complex, this revolutionary Conditioner deeply penetrates hair fibers to combat the porosity of dry, damaged and frizzy hair, and builds an internal barrier for complete frizz elimination with every use.
A targeted humidity-resistant blend of pure coconut oil and conditioning agents work hard to strengthen your hair’s immunity to fight the onset of frizz from the inside out, improving your hair’s texture and manageability, for noticeably smoother hair.
With continued use, your hair will become increasingly smoother and immune to frizz.
Frizz Ease 6 Effects Serum Original (I opted for the Extra Strength due to wearing wigs)
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula is a unique blend of silicones that smoothes texture while delivering a layer of crystal-clear gloss for perfectly polished, amazingly shiny, frizz-free results. Repels humidity to help prevent weather-related frizz & prolongs the life of color-treated hair.
“Never before have I found a product that can so quickly and dramatically improve the appearance and actual surface of the hair. Frizzy, permed or color-treated hair is transformed instantly. It becomes visibly smoother, glossier and stronger after one application. Coarse, over-processed hair actually looks and feels like glass. Regardless of the hair type, the benefits are always incredible sheen and vitality.This formula repels moisture which helps prevent hair from frizzing in damp weather. It also contains a sunscreen to block out the damaging effects of UV rays on the hair.”
