New Year is really only a few hours away now, and one of the things I’m going to be doing is pampering myself a bit. My favourite thing about pampering is giving my hair a bit of TLC. I’m going to be using the John Frieda Repair Range*, I’ve only ever used the Shampoo and Conditioner from this range, so when I was also sent the deep conditioner and the flyaway tamer to try I was pretty sold already.
So, I’ll start with the shampoo and conditioner first. I usually shampoo twice, then once it’s all rinsed out I’ll apply the conditioner all over. Usually I’d let this sit for around 5 minutes or so, but seen as I’m using a deep conditioner straight afterwards I’ll massage it in and wash it out straight away.
Like I said above, I’ll then apply the deep conditioner, paying particular attention to the ends of my hair. Once it’s on, I’ll clip my hair up on top of my head, and go about the rest of my showering business. I’ll give it around 5 minutes to just sit and sink into my hair; this stuff smell amazing, the whole range has the same scent really, it just smells so good.
Once I’ve rinsed that out, and I’m out the shower, then I’ll start to dry my hair and style it as usual. This is where the tamer wand for flyaways is handy – I won’t use it near the roots as my hair does have a tendency to get quite oily, quite quickly sometimes, so I’ll just stick to using it on the ends. It makes a really nice serum, and will help to maintain my frizzy bits, and keep my hair looking sleek. I do like to use my hair dryer on the lowest setting just to give the ends of my hair a quick blast, as I’ve found that this helps the tamer sink in to the hair better.
Overall I really like the whole range, the deep conditioner is a nice weekly treatment to use, and gives hair that little extra love it might need from heat styling, colouring, or just general everyday wear and tear. The tamer is also nice, but I’m still not overly convinced that it should be applied near get roots of the hair. And the shampoo and conditioner has been and will always be a firm favourite of mine anyway, they’re great used together as a duo, or even used on their own to mix and match with another range.
I wouldn’t say that the products in this range suit a particular hair type in general, but those who would see the benefit a lot more are those of you who have heat or chemically treated hair.
My hair is left feeling soft and tangle free when using these, and styling just seems to be that much easier and less of a fight to get my hair to behave.
You can find the whole John Frieda collection at Boots, online and in-store.
