So last month, when I was asked to review the new John Frieda Full Repair range*, I jumped at the chance. I'm constantly on the look out for something that'll make my hair luscious and beautiful, and I'll try most things. I have damaged hair, and I have done for years. That being said, I lopped off about 8 inches off my hair in July, and my hair has been in much better condition since then. Still, I still execute damage control!
The range consists of Shampoo and Conditioner and a repairing oil elixir, that's meant to 'hydrate and rescue' hair, replenishing moisture without weighing hair down (as it says on the bottle.)
I can't describe the smell, although I've tried! It's nice, yes, but I can't quite put my finger on the scent. It's more floral-ly than anything, and even then I can't quite say which flowers!
Let's get down to the nitty gritty. I have used this almost every day for 3 weeks, and have I noticed a difference? Well, no, not massively. My hair certainly isn't feeling worse, which is a bonus, and as I've plastered heat onto my hair quite a lot recently, it must be doing something. It's a bit shinier than normal, which I love which is a bonus. The oil elixir is meant to smooth and straighten hair, and I definitely noticed my hair was a lot smoother after using it, so I shall definitely be continuing with that.
All in all, although I enjoy using the shampoo and conditioner, I probably wouldn't buy it again unless it was on an offer. That being said, the elixir will make it into my 'everyday hair care' pile definitely!
Have any of you used it? What do you think?
