Although it’s a brand that I’ve heard of, John Frieda isn’t a brand that I’ve really delved into other than their colour protection shampoos that are tailored to different hair colours, so when Rachel offered me a couple of their products for curly hair I immediately said yes because naturally my hair is very wavy/curly and can be prone to frizz. I’ve been trialing this product for a week so here’s my thoughts.
This is the old packaging of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Spray and since then I’ve noticed that they have new bottles which look a bit nicer. Still I like the purple on here and the spray applicator, but I do find the grey and white/clear is a little lacklustre.
The recommended way to apply this is to apply to damp hair and then to apply and scrunch, I have applied it this way but I’ve also applied it in a morning to my curls and then scrunched and it has the same effect. I do recommend following the instructions though because it does work better apply it onto damp hair because then your hair can dry without frizz.
The product description for this is as follows:
“John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Spray transforms wilted waves and curls into sexy swerves, curves and spirals. Alcohol-free formula leaves hair super-silky, never “crispy”. Innovative magnesium-enriched formula penetrates hair to restore elasticity and spring. Boosts and enhances your natural curl pattern. Special conditioning and glossing agents help fight frizz and leave hair glistening with healthy-looking shine. Non-sticky, non-greasy.”
This is a whole lot of claims that John Frieda makes, but you know what? I can forgive him because they are actually true. The first time I sprayed this I didn’t expect it to work, I’ve tried mousses, serums, sprays and all of them struggle to fix my hair how I like it without turning it crispy or dry. This smells lovely and I’m so glad that there’s no alcohol in it because I’ve found that my hair can get on the dry side with it being curly, so I’m glad that there’s no alcohol to dry it out further. It also really does banish the frizz whilst leaving my hair silky, shiny and healthy without being sticky or crispy, hallelujah!
Just in case you didn’t believe me here’s an after photo from the product. My hair is usually very frizzy but as you can see the curls are defined and there’s a lack of frizz, it feels lightweight and bouncy exactly how I like my hair to feel.
Overall, I’m really impressed if you have curly hair I’d definitely recommend and I will be repurchasing, I have one more thing from the range to try but may just have to pick up some other bits.
The John Freida Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Spray is available here for £5.09.
