Good Evening Girlies!
I have a bit of a love hate relationship with John Frieda products, some of them I adore and will buy again and again (Yay for 3-day-straight!), but others seem to be over priced and do absolutely nothing for my hair (I'm looking at you frizz-ease deep conditioner). However, when the new Full Repair range was launched a couple of months ago it seemed to be met with a more united positive reception from the blogging world so I thought I'd give a couple of things from the range a go. But lo and behold we have yet another love hate situation with the Full Repair Deep Infusion and Styling Spray...
Perfect Ends Deep Infusion...
I thought that I'd start with the product I love and that is the Perfect Ends Deep Infusion. This is a lightweight serum that is supposed to repair the look and feel of damaged hair, as well as protecting it from heat styling. The first thing I really love about this product is how light it is, as I find some oils and serums can be very heavy and really weigh hair down, but once you've dried your hair after applying this you can't feel it at all. This also means a little product goes a long way which makes it great value for money at £6.99 for 50ml. As for the difference it makes to your hair, I personally thought my dyed and heat styled hair was softer, more shiny and looked healthier after using this and for this reason I think this would be a great alternative to the very expensive Moroccan oil. Definitely something to pop into your basket next time you're at Boots of you're looking for a cheap way to spruce you're hair up :)
Heat Activated Styling Spray...
Now onto the hate part of this post and I'm afraid it's about the Heat Activated Styling Spray. I was so excited to try this product as it's a spray which not only acts as heat protection, but is also meant to keep your heat styled hair in place for longer. As I always find any curls I put into my hair with my ghd's just fall out again very quickly I had high hopes this would keep my curls going all day or night and I was incredibly disappointed when they seemed to fall out even quicker than before! I have tried this many times and I can honestly say it's never helped to keep any style I've created through heat in tact for longer. Really not even worth the £5.99 for 100ml I paid, although I suppose that's an okay price for a heat protector.
Have you tried anything from the John Frieda Full Repair range? Have you found anything that keeps your curls in place all day?
I've had such a perfect couple of days as me and my family and boyfriend went down to Portsmouth to see my sister in a show last night which was amazing and it was so good to see her. Then today we went to the sunny beach in Portsmouth and I relived my childhood a little bit with candy floss, 2p machines and crazy golf, just wish I'd put some sun cream on as I'm now sporting some very special strap tan/burn lines!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
