I've learnt a lot through blogging this year, and one thing that really shines through is to do with my hair, all my life I've suffered with greasy roots and frizzy ends for as long as I can remember, so I have always treated my hair as greasy, that was until a couple of lovely commenters pointed out the frizz was due to my hair needing more moisture. Since then I've gone for frizz head to more sleek head, the grease problem isn't solved but 1 out of 2 isn't bad.
For the past couple of weeks I have been using two members of the Brilliant Brunette Shampoo Range from John Frieda, I have been combining the multi-tone revealing moisturising shampoo (£5.29) with the liquid shine illuminating conditioner (£5.89).
I have to admit I've never really used a range of products aimed at my hair colour before, so I was intrigued to see what it would do.
The shampoo is formulated with crushed pearls and sweet almond oil to soften the hair, while helping to bring out the multi tonal colours and leave shine. It is a non – colour depositing formula that can be used on natural or colour treated hair.
The conditioner contains exclusive Crystalline Complex. It penetrates the damaged areas of your hair, while polishing the exterior of the strand to reflect the light and create a brilliant shine.
I've found this shampoo and conditioner amazing to use, the shampoo has a bronze look to it and lathers quickly while still being easy to wash out, the conditioner is a white colour and a little goes a long way.
It has left my hair feeling amazing, soft and silky without being weighed down, the ends of my hair seem to feel less brittle and my hair is still far from its old frizzy self. I feel confident that I can get away without straightening it, and know that I won't look like I have a bush on top of my head. I've actually felt proud of my hair (and that next to never happens). I am definitely looking forward to seeing what continued use of this product turns out for me. *Fingers crossed* it all just gets better.
The last package in the picture is the Full Repair Heat – Activated Styling Spray (£5.99)
I'm not one to use styling products (I know really bad of me) but I did give this a whirl if it protected my hair I don't know, and as I said before my hair does look and feel in better condition, and although I put most of that down to the shampoo and condition due to more use, I can't pass by the fact this could have played a part as well.
It is designed to improve manageability, create natural movement and give a long lasting hold to any style.
I'm impressed with these three products, and I would be interested in hearing if you have tried these or others by John Frieda, and how you found them.
