John Frieda Full Repair: Hydrate + Rescue

John Frieda Full Repair: Hydrate + Rescue | www.latenightnonsense.com John Frieda Full Repair: Hydrate + Rescue 2 | www.latenightnonsense.com

Over the years, I've flitted about with different shampoos, conditioners and other hair treatments. I have long, thick and often frizzy hair that really doesn't react well with the humidity. Prone to split ends and dry, brittle break-offs I've always been on the lookout for products that are going to give my hair that radiance and shine I once achieved so easily as a child.

John Frieda have never been far from my beauty cupboard as my mum has always had something of theirs tucked away in her hairdressing bag which has made it's way into my routine. A few months ago I'd purchased the Frizz-Ease Hair Serum, £6.29, which was great but I found myself having to use so much of the product as I have such thick and long hair. One pump is never enough for me, no matter what the bottle says. With this in mind, when I was asked to see if I'd like to try the new Full Repair range to see if the condition of my hair would improve, I jumped at the chance!

The Full Repair Hydrate + Rescue Shampoo*, £5.89, and Conditioner*, £5.89, have been in my shower for a week or so now and the smell alone is different to most hair products I invest in. It's so much more 'grown up' than I buy, perhaps less floral and fruity and more luxurious and rich. The same can be said of the Deep Conditioner*, £6.99, which I tend to apply to my ends after a general condition and leave it on to really nourish my sun bleached and brittle tips. The inclusion of Inca Inchi Oil, a Peruvian nutrient from the Amazon, gives a boost of omega-3 without being greasy and heavy on the hair. After just one use I noticed a difference in the condition of my ends especially, they don't look anywhere near as dry or break off at an alarming rate. A few more washes and my hair feel silky smooth and I've had so many compliments, people wondering if I've coloured my hair recently which I suppose is down to how healthy and shiny it is.

For my frizziness, the Full Repair Flyaway Tamer Smoothing Wand*, £10.99, is perfect to pop in my bag, or pocket to carry around during the day and touch up any stubborn hairs that just won't lay still. It has the same scent as the shampoo and conditioner, which I can't get enough of. Like a mascara wand, you just brush it through any unmanageable areas and voila! This has fast become my favourite of all the products, but be careful of going too overboard or, like hairspray, it can go a little crispy to touch.

The final product I don't use all too often but, when I'm opting for bouncy curls, a few drops of the Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Enhancing Oil*, £9.99, before drying really bring out the style and adds volume. I have naturally wavy to straight hair, and this just gives me slight beachy waves that stay put. A little salt spray and this look will last all day and night, even in this intense heat!

Have you tried any John Frieda products? What's your favourite?

    1. I used to use a fair few of their products but not so much recently so I jumped at the chance to try these out.

  2. I almost picked a couple of these products up today.. but something about them puts me off and I'm not quite sure what it is. I've read so much about them I really should give them a try.

    1. I think, for the price, you can't go too wrong. They're pretty much suited to all hair types too as it's a repairing formula.

    1. It really is! I bought some a while back but end up having to use loads of it as I have such long hair.

  4. That Flyaway Wand is an amazing idea! I haven't seen anything like that before. Bit strange that its more expensive than the shampoo and conditioner though, would've thought it would be the other way around x

    1. This is what I thought too. I'd never seen anything like this and pop it in my bag every time I go out now, it's so handy for when it's humid and my hair hasn't fully dried.

  6. I've heard so many people talk about John Freida products but I feel like my hair isn't damaged enough for most of their products. The Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Enhancing Oil sounds lovely though and would probably work for my hair.

    1. It definitely would. It's so useful for when you want to have a natural wave in your hair without going overboard.

      On another note, your comments keep appearing in my spam folder. How odd is that? I'm not ignoring you, promise!

  7. They sound great! I saw the new range pop up in boots and wondered what the difference would be. The wand is such an amazing idea for frizzies! X

    1. Who would have thought that putting a little formula like that in a mascara tube would be such a revelation?

  8. I used to use John Freida shampoo and conditioner a long time ago... I think it was the one for brunette hair. I wonder if they contain sulfates? I've been using the L'Oreal no-sulfate ones and they've been amazing! Pretty photos :)

    1. It looks like it does, but it seems to be doing wonders for my hair. Just checked the ingredients list. My hair is so frizzy at the moment, it needs all the help it can get! I will have to check the L'Oreal ones out, don't think I've ever used a shampoo by them before.

    1. The specific coloured range is great, isn't it? I used the same ones when I had blonde hair. :)
