John Frieda – Frizz-Ease Hair Serum
This post may contain affiliate links.
I have fairly thick, wavy blonde hair which can either be straightened poker-straight or scrunched to give spiral curls. Unfortunately whichever style I go for I always suffer from the dreaded frizz – made worse by damp or humid weather – so using a serum is a must for me. Frizz-Ease Hair Serum from John Frieda is my most-used styling product, and unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 10 years you can’t fail to have heard of it. This silky serum can be used on straight or curly hair and has been formulated to eliminate ‘dry, moderate frizz’ for glossy silky-smooth styles.
After washing and towel drying my hair I pump a hazelnut-sized blob of Frizz-Ease Hair Serum into my hands and then distribute it evenly through my hair, avoiding the roots. I can then either blow dry and straighten my hair, or just leave it to dry curly and natural (something which I always do when on holiday in a hot country). Once dry my hair is smooth with no flyaway frizz and stays this way for a good couple of days (unless I get caught in a torrential downpour!).
It’s important not to apply too much of the product at once or it quickly makes hair appear greasy, if you’re new to Frizz-Ease Hair Serum start by applying a pea-sized blob and then gradually increase the amount if it’s not enough. Whilst Frizz-Ease Hair Serum is perfect for banishing frizz and flyaways and ensuring smooth shiny hair it does tend to eliminate any volume, so I wouldn’t recommend this product if you love having ‘big hair’. But if you prefer your hair smooth, sleek and devolumised then this is the product for you!
I use the Original Formula product for medium to coarse frizzy hair, but there is also an Extra Strength Formula for very coarse frizzy hair. John Frieda Frizz-Ease was a winner in the 2007 In Style Best Beauty Buys awards, and also picked up an award at the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards in 2007.
UPDATE 18th Jan 2018 – since writing this review John Frieda have changed the packaging of Frizz Ease, but it’s still the same great product inside the bottle. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum is priced at £6.29 for a 50ml bottle and is available from Boots.
