I’ve been delaying my haircut for a while now, so I’ve been having a ton of split ends and frizzy bits sitting on my head begging to be saved. I’ve been lucky to try a plethora of products lately, and if you are on a budget, you might find the Frizz Ease line from John Frieda worth looking at. I always have the struggle between styling hair while it’s wet or while it’s dry, usually I’m too lazy for both! I’ve been more into their products since I got my hair styled at the London Drugs Fall Beauty event last year by Alain Larivee from John Frieda, who did things to my hair no man I thought could do!
John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch Up Crème
The Secret Weapon Touch-up Crème (150mL) is a white cream that is applied onto dry hair. It contains avocado oil, which is supposed to be really good for your hair (that is, if you use JUST an avocado on your hair, you’re supposed to get insane shiny hair. Will definitely try one day.) I use this the most when I wash my hair at night and I go to bed and get frizzy, electrified crazy lady bedhead hair the next morning.
How to Use: Apply to dried hair. Rub a small amount of crème into palms. Pull through hair, concentrating on ends. Re-apply as needed.
The Touch Up Creme tames my hair, reduces the frizz swirls on the top of my head, and adds some shine. For me though, the top of my hair does feel greasy in a few hours. However, I believe you can this product for around $10 at drugstores or less, so if you’re looking for a no mess hair product that’s on budget, this is highly considerable. The ingredients can be found here (yes, there are parabens.)
John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum
I am leaning towards the Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum (50mL) more. (PS- I lost the lid of the product #bloggerFail!) This product is to have six effects: eliminate frizz, humidity protection, heat protection, smoothes, hydrates, and tames. This product is suited for medium to coarse hair, which is perfect for me; not only do I have thick hair, each strand is coarse so I end up having a bushy head/pyramid looking hair.
How to use: Apply to soaking wet hair. Use sparingly, dispensing 1 pump of serum into palm. Rub hands together and distribute evenly throughout hair. Avoid applying directly to roots. Use more or less depending on hair length and thickness. Do not rinse out. Style as desired.
I always blow dry my hair and after that, my hair feels so soft and manageable. It was easy to use hair straightener after blow drying, while keeping the ends of my hair not looking my a dried up field of wheat. You get a lot less product in the this bottle (50mL) so use it sparingly! The ingredients can be found here.
As I spend more time on my hair when it’s wet, I prefer using the Frizz Ease 6 Effects Serum instead, just to get everything done in one step. If you are looking something to seal up the split ends and frizz, the Touch-Up Creme may be more suitable, however, I think people with finer hair will find it more useful, cause it seems to add some weight to the hair. But I’m not hair professional so don’t take my word for it!
I’m a huge fan of the John Frieda brand as they make quite a few decent products that fits my budget. They can be found in drugstores such as Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, or places like Walmart or Supestore. I have a few more exciting things from John Frieda to show you on my blog soon! Do you prefer applying styling products to wet hair or dry hair?
