John Frieda Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque & 3 Day Straight Spray

John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque

I’ve managed to start swimming again, well I say swimming, I just really float about and wave my arms now and again. This is good news for my body, I get a bit of relief from my pain but it’s not so good for my hair. Regular swimmers will know that swimming can ruin your hair, it can dry it up and at worse frazzle it. Mine has been getting a bit dry and in need of a deep conditioner. John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque* has been working a treat to repair my damaged hair, making it silky smooth. I don’t have curly hair but it does have some kinks in it and get a bit wild due to its thickness. I’ve found this masque just relaxes it a bit, making it a bit easier to control.

John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque contains milk protein, vitamin e and avocado oil for an intensive treatment. I use this around 1-2 times a week, anymore and it’d make my hair too oily. If you do have an oily scalp like me I’d recommend focusing on the end of the hair, trying not to put too much on the roots. This is a lovely treatment for hair that’s suffering from too much heat damage, colouring and other treatments, or really anything that can affect your hair, even medication. 

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3 DAY Straight Spray

I’m pretty lazy with my hair. I had it short for ages because longer hair was just too much work for me. My hair’s a bit longer now- just below my chin and all one length- so I need to put in a bit more effort, but you know, not too much. So a spray that promises to keep it straight for three days sounded perfect. John Frieda 3 Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray for Curly Hair* promises to do that. It:

Transform curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts up to 3 days.Designed to work with your hair straighteners, this weightless spray with heat protection blocks out frizz as you straighten. A revolutionary blend of polymers with keratin protein wraps each strand, sealing in straight style for up to 3 days.* Keeps hair glossy, smooth and swinging with body.Safe for colour-treated and chemically-treated hair.

I’ve been using it with my Denman ceramic brush and straighteners with this spray and it works pretty well. Like I said above I don’t have curly hair, but it is unruly and kinky (cough). I found this easy to apply, the spray nozzle distributes the product nice and evenly over the hair. It’s applied on wet/damp hair not dry, so you need to get used to how much you’ll need to keep your hair in place. The directions on the bottle say around 7-15 spray, I think I used around 10. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the hair. In fact, I can't feel it at all.

The spray keeps my hair straight and sleek but there was a couple of bits that remained kinky, I can never seem to get these bits to go straight though. It also protects my hair when using straighteners, which is brilliant. There was no heat damage which I have experienced with other supposedly protective sprays/serums. I’m not sure how it’d stand up to really super-curly hair but I reckon it’s worth a go. It did keep my hair straight for the two days before I washed it, I reckon it’d have made it to the third but two days is about my limit. I’m happy with this product. If you like your hair sleek without too much fuss this would be a good product to try.

  1. I love these two products. They work so well for me when I have longer hair. I find it funny that they are made by a Japanese company here in Europe.

    1. ah I didn't realise they were Japanese made, that explains the good quality :)

  2. Ooh I love that mask, but it's a little on the pricy side so def one to pick up when it's on offer. great post!

    1. thanks! it really is a great masque and nice for a treat x
