Frizzy Hair: John Frieda’s Frizz Control

Summer’s finally around the corner. We’re ecstatic for the warmth, sunshine and beach days that have no end but let’s face it, everyone’s frizzy hair nightmare is also in plain sight.

I’ve had long hair for some time, now and if you have a haircut with layers, as I do, the crown of your hair might frizz up in what faintly resembles a cotton candy jungle. Clearly, I’m exaggerating but nonetheless, frizz is real, especially, when it is hot and humid outside.

I decided to embark on a budget-friendly journey to the drugstore to find some easy and quick products to help with frizz control. After speaking with hair stylists in salons, I remembered their wise words in regards to frizz control. It starts with your shampoo, conditioner followed by your styling and heat protection products. Evidently, it is a process I had not been adhering to very well until my frizz decided to go all ‘godzilla’ on me after a warm, humid and rainy week here in Toronto.

I had read great reviews about John Frieda’s Frizz Ease shampoo and conditioner and it is time I gave it a shot. Infused with coconut oil, the shampoo and conditioner are silicone free which helps with reducing hair frizz.  I also grabbed the last bottle of John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Thermal protection serum for when I blow dry my hair, after. The thermal heat protector provides heat protection from hot tools and UV sun exposure whilst, still keeping your hair silky, smooth and shiny. These retail between $7-$15 depending on the retailer but I’ve attached a few links here for you that are the lowest ones I could find (click on the picture).

To begin, I lathered the shampoo into my scalp for a few minutes followed by the conditioner and to end off, towel dried my hair. The trick with getting the serum to work well is to make sure you don’t get any of it or the least amount possible on the roots of your hair and work your way down the strands of your hair. After brushing through my hair and letting the serum sit in for a minute or two, I grabbed my medium-sized roller brush and gave myself a mini blowout. I have to say with just one use, I noticed the immediate difference in my hair. My frizz had finally been tamed.

You’re welcome to take a look at my before and after pictures to see the difference. If you’ve used other products, feel free to comment below and I’d love to hear how it all worked out for you.
