Frizzy Hair? Don't Dispair! John Frieda has the answer




Hello there Madames et Monsieurs!


I'm kicking my bum back into gear today and jumping onto the frizzy hair bandwagon. Say hello to Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Formula by the man himself, John Frieda. 




Before I go on about this little beaut of product I'll tell you a little about my hair type and you can see if this is for you. I have thiiick hair, and a lot of it, it's just to my shoulders but it's not easy to manage. I have naturally very curly/frizzy short hair around my hairline and the nape of my neck, which never grows more than a few inches (genetics ey!). This is something every hair dresser I've been to likes to point out "you have very short hair here don't you!?" Mhmm, lady I know. So these are the main parts which I have to tackle after a shampoo and condition.




John Friedas Extra Strength Hair Serum has helped me on my mission to fight the frizz for a loooong time now (as in years), so it deserves an honourable mention on my blog. This is a go to hair product for me and dare I say, Holy Grail? This serum is said to block frizz, instantly replenish coarse, wiry frizzy hair into more polished and shiny locks. It contains a UV filter and is a blend of silicones infused with Algar extract and Silk protein to leave dry hair soft and healthy so it's more easy to manage. Amen to that! 




I like to apply this straight after I get out of the shower, I pump a large pea sized amount onto the tips of my fingers, rub them together and then pull my fingers through my wet hair starting with the problem areas. I then usually blow dry my hair and when it's about half way dry I stop and leave it to finish drying naturally. I literally can't count how many bottles of this stuff I have gone through, I'm currently halfway through this one and will, as always, go to repurchase once it's run out. I seriously panic once this starts to get low or if I forget it when I'm travelling because I know how much it helps my hair. I also use it after I've styled my hair with hair straighteners or anything thats dried out my hair. I take a small blob on my hands again and run it through the dry patches and ends of my hair for extra shine. I would highly recommend this product to anybody looking for a good serum and remedy for frizzy hair.

I also think it's a great price for how long it lasts, usually around the 7-8 euro mark, you can find it online hereSo there you have it, we can now all go on our frizz free journey and thank Mr. Frieda for saving the day!



Do you have any hair treatments that you find work great to fight the frizz? Have you tried out this product and liked it? I'd love to hear from you ! x





See you soon!

    1. Thank you so much Izzy! that's a really lovely comment :) it's great to have the salon brands at home isn't it? I'm not sure what AD swaps are, sorry I probably sound a bit silly for not knowing :( I'm really interested to know what they are though! xx

  2. I love this serum, there's a small bottle in my work-handbag. It's not too greasy if I apply just the right amount.

  3. I have long thick and curly hair. I recently bought a herbal essences curl creme that I didn't really like. I don't have any other products so hopefully they sell this where I live! Thanks so much for the info :)

    1. Hey Nini! I used to find this in any pharmacy when I lived in Ireland and then when I moved to France I found it in the supermarkets with the rest of the hair shampoo's etc because they hardly put any hair care stuff into pharmacies here. So check both! I hope that helped and that it works for you too :) I hate how some products make your hair crunchy/sticky but this serum is really light in your hair as long as you don't put too much in. Thanks for popping by and leaving a lovely comment xx

  4. I have one very similar to this but the bottle is yellow, and it is an absolute LIFESAVER. Bizarrely, my hair is only frizzy some days, other days it will behave all by itself, but when it doesn't, it does it with a vengeance! Basically, John Frieda is the MAN! Haha.
    I love reading your posts, they are always so lovely! Do you have a blog button to swap by any chance? On the left side of my page I have buttons to blogs I like and I'd love to put yours up there!

  6. Ohmygosh, I almost picked this up when I was shopping yesterday, but then decided that it may be a waste of money if it didn't work. My hair tends to be really quite frizzy so I am going to try this asap! Thanks for the review :) xx

    2. Aw, thank you! :) I've decided to keep using a cheap one from Wilkinsons for now, which according to this blog post (here) is a dupe for the John Frieda one, and I highly recommend it! Although I doubt you can get it in France :(

      But I'll keep an eye on the John Frieda one and look out for any special offers! :) xx

  8. I have not used John Freida products in years due to over use when i was a teenager (flashback of my sisters and I with hard, shiny curls from overuse of product haha!)

    Im actually getting my hair organically straightened with a Keratin treatment tomorrow which is supposed to help heavily reduce frizz so fingers crossed it works! Ill be writing all about it whether it goes well or not but if it goes well it might be a solution to your problems!

    Love your blog as always :)

I would love to try if it's good, I hope you're happy with the result :) haha oh god, don't get me started on old hair flashbacks! thankfully we grow out of it haha! (I had really long damaged frizzy hair that I didn't want to cut that stuck out everywhere! *cringes* ) xxx

  10. I have tons of thick, frizzy hair too! I've tried a couple Frizz Eaze formulas in the past, but I don't think I've tried this Extra Strength one. I might have to try this! Right now I'm loving Garnier Sleek & Shine Moroccan Oil. I feel like it works miracles on my hair!

    Great review! :)

  11. thank u so much for the recommendation, I'll take it into account, I use another good product to avoid the frizz, it's pro naturals moroccan argan oil which reduces the frizz and keeps my hair very nice. :D

  13. I had a lot of frizz but using argan oil has definitively tame down my curls! I also bought a really good flat iron which helps a lot, making my hair so much more manageable. It's the karmin titanium if anyone cares to know, I highly recommend it :)

  14. Oh looks like a worthy product! I'm currently using pro naturals moroccan argan oil, also recommend it!
