During the summer months it is common for hair to frizz due to the warm temperatures. Usually this means slathering your hair in tonnes of argon oil, or a mixture of ten products, but I recently picked up a tiny bottle of John Freida’s Frizz-Ease Original 6 Effects Serum. This tiny 25ml bottle promises to be the only thing you need to battle the frizz. All you have to do is apply it to soaking wet hair after washing and conditioning, but don’t rinse it out. Since it sounded so simple I decided to give it a go.
The packaging for this product is very simple and understated, but that is something that I like. It is a small translucent red bottle with a pump top, something that makes it easy to spot in the bathroom and also easy to dispense when your hands are wet. This small 25ml size additionally means that it is great for travelling and carrying on the go.
Consistency and Finish
The product itself is a thick and clear gel which seemingly dissolves when you rub your hands together and apply to your hair. You only need one or two pumps depending on the length and thickness of your hair, which means that it is very lightweight, so much so that my hair feels exactly the same after drying.
This product is £3.99 from Boots (£6.99 for 50ml), and all John Freida products are currently on 3 for 2. I think this is very reasonable for this product, especially if this is the only post-shower product you use. For the low price it is definitely worth a try.
Overall, I really like this frizz-ease product. It successfully reduces frizz, even on my hair which is very thick, coarse and wavy. However, I would use other products in addition to this. Over the past few washes I have ditched my usual argon oil. While my frizz hasn’t resurfaced, the serum does not replenish moisture. Therefore, if your hair is on the drier side you may need some other oils and serums in your shower bag.
