My hair is naturally quite dark brown, so keeping my blonde in tip top shape and condition can be difficult at times while also trying to achieve luxurious volume
.. being a ‘not so natural blonde’ my hair can tend to go brassy in between trips to the hair dresser so blonde shampoos can really help! I’ve been using the John Frieda Highlight Activating Moisturising range* for about 3 weeks now and it claims to “smooth hair as it gently removes darkening, dulling build-up
” and “mends porous areas to restore healthy texture
” it also contains Jojoba oil sunflower and white tea complex for maximum blonde impact!
The Shampoo, lathered up really nicely, its thick in consistency and only a small amount was needed! Some blonde shampoos which I’ve used in the past i found i had to repeat the process to achieve the best results, well not with this. It left my hair feeling really clean and it smelled lovely a little like fresh flowers! As with all my blonde shampoos i tend to leave them on for a couple of minutes before rinsing so this one was no different.. i left it for about 5 minutes giving it chance to work its magic on my hair before i rinsed and followed up with the conditioner.
The Conditioner, left my hair feeling silky and smooth and my hair had no hints of dryness after using this combo! It smells exactly the same as the shampoo which i love because then your hair really takes on the smell.. and everyone seemed to compliment me after using this! (who doesn’t love a ‘your hair smells nice’ compliment?) The formula of the conditioner itself is really thick, silky and glossy looking and a little really does go a long way!
The Verdict, I’ve been using this shampoo and conditioner combo for about 3 weeks now and i still have at least half a bottle of each left! that’s amazing value for money. I do only tend to wash my hair every couple of days but i think for 3 weeks having that amount left is amazing! My hair is noticeably softer and much more easy to manage, i definitely think my hair seems brighter and not as dull as it usually does when i use ordinary shampoos and conditioners!
Along with the John Frieda Highlight Activating Moisturising range i have also been using the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum* The original formula is aimed at those with medium to coarse hair and it said to apply on to ‘soaking wet hair
‘, so while your in the shower or bath straight after shampooing and conditioning you can apply this serum there and then. Job done!
I apply one/two pumps to my hair, as i don’t want to get carried away. Serums can always turn badly quickly so to make sure this doesn’t happen to you, i have 2 handy little tips:
1. Use the serum sparingly – a little really does go a long way.
2. Do not i repeat do not apply it to the roots of your hair!
I really enjoyed using this serum i found it a little strange applying to soaking wet hair but if i forgot (I don’t have a very good memory) i just applied it when i remembered and i still got the same wonderful results. My hair felt instantly much more tame, silky and smooth with using frizz ease, sometimes my hair can become fly away and basically just a tad frizzy! Well that’s a thing of the past now. The serum is thick in consistency almost gel like which is perfect for a serum and it doesn’t feel at all greasy! It also gave my hair a little shine which was a nice touch, the serum has a slight zesty smell to it so it left my hair smelling fresh! and is now apart of my everyday hair care routine!
