Generally, my hair is in pretty good condition. However, I do like to tie it up in the week and curl it at the weekends. I’ve started to use invisibobbles which are meant to be less damaging than regular hair bands but I can’t give up the curling tongs. My hair looks better with a bit of bounce!
That’s where the John Frieda Full Repair range comes in. I was sent four products to try – shampoo, conditioner, a deep conditioning mask and repairing oil. I like the packaging as the deep red gives the range a luxe feel. I also like the fact that the shampoo and conditioner come in squeezable tubes rather than standard bottles. So much easier to use!
The Hydrate and Rescue shampoo itself feels silky, lathered well and left my hair feeling clean after one application. The Hydrate and Rescue conditioner had the same soft texture and a nice thick consistency without feeling too heavy.
My hair felt quite soft after rinsing the conditioner but I decided to use the Deep Conditioner Mask for an extra TLC. I left it on for about 5 minutes and it was easy to rinse out.
I applied the oil to towel-dried hair. The instructions advised one drop but as my hair is quite long, I used two.
I was keen to see the results so blow-dried my hair on a medium heat setting, using a big round brush. I didn’t have as much fallout as usual and my hair didn’t take as long to dry as it usually does. After it had completely dried, it felt velvety soft and silky smooth. The feeling lasted a good 2-3 days afterwards and it was only until I plastered my hair in dry shampoo that it started to lose its softness.
I can’t think of a bad word to say about the range. The only minor aspect is that the oil is quite runny, so be careful when you’re dispensing it into your hand as it could get messy! But nothing disastrous.
If you want to give your locks a real treat, without a hefty price tag, you can’t go wrong with the John Frieda Full Repair range.
