Oh boy. What can I say that is good except it is reassuring to see that others do not think this "miracle" is great. When Frizz Ease first came out, I was highly intrigued b/c all the magazines were pontificating about how great this stuff was.
My hair: Coarse, very curly in spots, wavy in others. Used to be thick, thick, thick, but menopause took a lot of hair away. Still have a lot, but not as much as when I was younger. Damaged from sun and years of coloring. However, I do know how to condition, and blow dry and take enough care of my hair that it does look pretty decent.
Back to Frizz Ease. I used this on quite a few occassions, mostly b/c I thought with more use, something short of a miracle would happen. Tried it by applying to wet hair. No change. Tried it on dry hair. first, it would look ok..but then when I went out in humid weather, it flattened my hair down, making it look greasy. Now, with the hair that I have, I am lucky enough to not have to wash it more than twice a week. However, this actually dried out my hair--yes. Started out flat and a couple of days later, would dry it out completely. Go figure.

The weird thing is that I kept going back to Frizz-Ease thinking that something great would still happen. Never did.

I did find that the Ouidad Shine Serum works very well for my hair as does the Living Proof No Frizz.

emm im confused with this product...i think it made a slight difference but nothing that made it not necissary to straighten my hair after leting it air dry. i could deffinitely live with out it. it didnt stop frizz at all just toned it down ever so slightly but not to a noticable effect.

I have extremely curly, frizzy hair. This product did absolutely nothing to improve my fizz. It made my hair feel really oily even when using only small amounts.

This works if you use a MINUTE amount and keep it far, far away from your roots... which is frustrating, because what the heck are you supposed to do for the frizz on the crown of your head? Using more than a drop or two - not even a full pump - made my hair look super greasy, but the one/two drop amount kept frizz at bay for most of the day. However, like most anti-frizz serums, you have to wash your hands multiple times afterward to get all that slick residue off... more hassle than it's worth.

The first hair serum I ever bought, this is such an oldie to me. It does a decent job, gives me shine and smooths my hair without weighing it down or making it look greasy. It doesn't dry out my hair either if I don't wash it off the next day. The scent is subtle too, at least I think so. It's good so I suggest giving it a try.

Another product that didnt really help my thick curly Mediterranean hair! It seemed to make it more greasy than anything and wasnt strong enough to be used on it's own to combat frizz (which is my hair's middle name)
Back to the hunt for a perfect anti - frizz product (or straighteners that dont damage your hair!

I used to use this after every time I washed my hair, and I waited and waited to finally see some results, but frankly, I never did.
Agreed, it does soften your hair a bit, but it really doesn't tame any frizz, not for me anyway.

I am now using something from pro-duo and that really works. I'm never ever trying anything from john frieda again.

I got this because of the hype. I can see NO results whatsoever on my hair. I use it as advised on soaking wet hair, I focus on my ends, but with no visible results.

I do not have frizzy hair, however, but I was told it could help make ends look less dry and feel softer. It did nothing like that. Will not buy again.

Also, the bottle leaks if its not standing up, and since it's a light little bottle, it easily tips over. I think one third of this bottle leaked in my bag. Big dissapointment.

This is one hair product I find myself coming back to time and time again. I started using it close to six years ago.
I have wavy, full, medium thickness hair that gets greasy easily- I'm talking gets greasy by spending too much time cooking. When I started using this I was heat styling everyday and it worked beautifully. I no longer use appliances everyday. Just wash condition use detangler and this and I am good to go. It really works best if you apply it on dripping wet hair and then comb. Other serums seem to coat the hair and leave me looking like I rubbed crisco on my hair or some feel like hair gel. JF Frizz ease is perfect. I doubt I will ever stray from using it again.
The packaging is a little frustrating because you can't get the last bit out which actually lasts me 8 uses or so. But it doesnt seem to be much better with other serums
