In desperate need of hair help! John Frieda Full Repair range

As a regular hair highlighter (and sheepish haircut dodger) I dread having dry, frazzled hair. I've been on the lookout for some nourishing products to hopefully help revive my style... I'm hoping I can prolong a visit to the hairdressers for as long as possible, as it's so expensive! 

I came across the new Full Repair range by John Frieda when I was in Boots and decided to see what it could do for my lacklustre locks. First up, Full Repair Full Body Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Conditioner Mask:

Shampoo & conditioner £5.69, Deep Conditioner £5.99 (Boots)

I'd like to point out how great these products smell! I can't quite describe it, other than to say it's a sweet but not fruity smell, a creamy kind of scent, kind of like fabric softener but in a good way! They smell like they'd be nourishing, which is a good sign :p The shampoo lathers up really well, producing lots of creamy bubbles and rinsing out easily. My hair felt smoother as soon as I'd rinsed the bubbles out, which I took to be a promising start. I used the Deep Conditioner next followed by the normal conditioner (top tip for intensive hydration: shampoo, deep condition, condition). The Deep Conditioner has a good thick consistency and easily spreads through hair. It rinsed out easily too, rather than sticking. The normal conditioner also felt very thick and creamy. After towel drying my hair I used some of the matching styling products:

Full Repair Perfect Ends serum, Styling Spray & Perfect Ends Sheer Mist 

The Perfect Ends serum (£6.99) is quite runny when squirted from the bottle so I'd suggest a very light push on the pump to start with! It was easy to comb through hair, as was the styling spray (£6.99) and the Perfect Ends Sheer Mist (£6.99), which I aimed at the ends of my hair rather than all over.

The result? Having blow-dried my hair I could see I had less fly-aways and the ends of my hair looked healthier. The dry fluffiness I usually experience was gone, and my hair felt smoother to the touch. I've been using the Full Repair range for a couple of weeks now and it definitely helps nourish dry hair while giving a good dose of shine.

  1. I was going to ask you recently if you knew of any good hair repair products so that I can stop my insane conditioning ritual! And voila! You have answered my prayers, once again!

    1. Haha, now you can cut your conditioning down to twice rather than thrice :p The products are really nice, I can't get over the smell! x

  2. I used an intensive repair conditioner from John Frieda and I'm thinking my hair is looking pretty snazzy today :)


Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I read and reply to every comment and would love to hear what you think x
