John Frieda Haircare Products Review

I've been a John Frieda haicare lover for years, so when I was recently contacted to try out some lovely new products, I jumped at the chance!

 When I worked for Boots, I always used to browse the haircare aisles (whilst putting out stock of course!) and use my staff discount to buy the premium hair care products to try. I always felt like these brands had a little something extra and my hair always felt great! I find brands like Aussie and TREsemme make my hair feel really greasy even when I blow dry my hair straight after a shower.

 The first thing I noticed about the products I was sent, even before I had opened the box, was the gorgeous smell. John Frieda products always have a lovely unique fragrance that I feel just sums up quality.

The new range is called "Luxurious Volume" which is designed to thicken fine hair. I have naturally quite thick hair but it always seems to look dull and flat so I tried out the Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion from the new range. You spray it on towel dried hair and focus it on the roots for crown volume and then blow dry it.

Over the next few days (as I'm naughty and wash my hair everyday) I could tell that the product was working, my hair felt like it had more body but I had to focus drying my hair particularly on the root for it to give the lift I wanted.

The Root Booster comes in two sizes, 125ml and 25ml. I had the smaller one which is a great size for taking on holiday and I will be purchasing the bigger bottle for everyday use on my next shopping trip.

I was also sent the Frizz-Ease Straight Ahead Shampoo and Conditioner which i've been using for just over a week now and my hair feels so soft and shiny. I've even had comments from people at work asking me if I had done anything different with my hair because it looked different (and one of my work colleagues actually went as far as stroking it!)

Finally, my absolute favourite item is this Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque. It's a really thick deep nourishing treatment that contains avocado oil which repairs damaged hair. I love to use this mask as a treat for my hair once a week by massaging it into wet hair and then leaving in for 3-5 minutes. Once its washed out it leaves your hair feeling silky smooth!

You can take a look at any of these products here. 

Or why not take a look at the John Frieda YouTube Channel which is full of videos and tutorials including one for the Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion.

Have you tried any of these John Frieda products before? Or do you use John Frieda in your everyday hair routine?


  1. Everything sounds wonderful and they all sound like they'd work a treat on my fine, frizzy hair! xo

  2. I've never used any John Frieda products but they sound good!

  3. Oh I love the sound of the volume range my hair is so fine and I love looking for new products that will make it look and feel more thicker

  4. I have the same problem with cheaper products making my hair feel greasy quickly. I tried the Herbal Essences clarifying shampoo and conditioner in the green bottles and they seem to be making a difference on the squeaky-clean front - fingers crossed I've found my new shampoo to keep my spending down! :-)
