Lush to the touch (Hair Review: John Frieda)


During the month of October I decided to try out something new as I usually use different shampoo brands every month to avoid dull and  extremely oily hair. I’ve been seeing John Frieda products all over social media and whilst browsing down the hair products aisle in Clicks I stumbled across this.

The full repair range was my pick because I felt that I haven’t done any deep conditioning treatments in a while and it was needed. Because these products are a bit pricey (R95-R140 each), I only bought the Shampoo, Conditioner, and the repairing oil.

After popping the cap open, I was instantly transported to a happy place – this product smells divine! Because I have thin and straight hair, my struggle is that my hair tends to get oily rather quick. For best results I shampoo twice before using conditioner (just enough to cover my ends and very little on my roots).

While my hair is still damp I use one pump of the repairing oil elixir and distribute it evenly on my hair, avoiding my roots. I use this as a heat protection too.

This picture does not do justice to the way my hair actually looked, felt and smelt. For me this product gave my hair shine, it did make my hair look and feel healthy, and it left my hair smelling really good! Because there are so many wonderful oils in the John Frieda: Full Repair products, my hair does get dirty within one day, but I certainly don’t mind washing my hair on a daily basis just to have it looking and feeling lush to the touch!

    So I bought the John Frieda hair products, I wanted to know if the repairing oil elixir makes your hair oily when drying it ? Oh and it really smells good haha

      No it doesn’t make your hair oily, just use 1-2 pumps and apply it to your damp hair. Avoid your roots and the top part of your hair.

What do you think?
