Variety is the spice of life and that’s exactly how I feel about hair products. As a self-confessed product junkie and hoarder, my bathroom speaks volumes about my search for the perfect product for my hair type. Being natural used to be limiting in terms of the ingredients in a lot of products but there has been such an influx of natural hair products that I’ve been left confused. Recommendations from fellow natural-haired sisters had been my go-to source of information and the fact that you could obtain samples of certain products before investing does make life easier.
A while ago, Rubybox send me John Frieda products to try and to be quite honest, they weren’t even on my radar as natural-hair friendly. From the first use, however it was evident that my hair loved it, as seen here. The John Frieda range I fell in love with was Frizz Ease Dream Curls! My hair and natural curls absolutely loves it and it smells amazing too. It left my hair soft and manageable and reduced frizz when I used heat. The first picture was taken after my first use and you could definitely see less frizz and loads of definition in my curl pattern.
The second picture is more recent and taken after using this range for about 2+ months.
Notice the difference? There’s definitely less frizz and curls are more defined. I’m not a wash-and-go girl but this range does allow me to walk around with perfect curls and I absolutely love it.
-If you’re using this range for the first time, ensure that you choose products suitable for your hair type.
-If you have fine, limp hair and want volume, choose John Frieda® Luxurious Volume
-If you have frizz concerns like I did, use either Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight range or Frizz Ease Dream Curls range.
-If you colour is dull and you need to vamp it up, use the Sheer Blonde or Brilliant Brunette range.
-If your hair is damaged and breakage occurs due to overstyling, then the Full Repair range is your match.
-Always use a T-shirt after washing your hair to plop your curls.
-When doing a wash-and-go, remember to do the LOC or LCO method which is liquid, oil and cream to retain moisture in your curls and keep the definition.
-When using heat, always use a heat-protectant spray and end off with a serum to retain moisture.
