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
I used to use this product for a few years, but am no longer purchasing for two reasons: 1) Scent, and 2) Packaging.
1) The company began to make the scent stronger. I wrote to them and asked them about it, and i received a response that they increased the scent to increase customer satisfaction. Go figure. I am not "sensitive" to scents, i just don't want to clash with a fragrance that i am choosing to wear, but mostly i don't wear perfumes as so many people are sensitive to scents these days - which is one reason that i am no longer buying this product.
2) When i used to buy it, i preferred to buy it in the flat pouch, which would enable me to get all the product out, and there would be little packaging to throw into the landfill. It became harder to find those flat pouches, so i could only find the bottles. It is impossible to get all the product out of the bottle (RIP OFF), and it was more packaging to throw into the landfill (ENVIRONMENTALLY UNFRIENDLY),
Best serum I have ever used! Better than this Clinique I use to use and for so much cheaper. I apply one pump and distribute it throughout my damp hair, concentrating on the ends. When my hair is dry, it feels so smooth and silky, no frizz what so ever! Of course teaming it up with other JF products will give you much better results however I have tried using the serum when I've washed my hair with just an ordinary cheap shampoo and it still made my hair amazing! After this original formula finishes I am going to buy the one with thermal protection so I don't have to use any heat protectant.
This smells nice and does tame the flyaways on the top of my head. I don't think I'd buy it again, however, as it doesn't really have a place in my beauty routine.
I've only got the 'original formula' of this, but it does nothing for my hair. I have medium length frizzy hair, and I notice absolutely no difference when I use this. Even glossing/shine mists and sprays do more to manage my hair than this. I love most of the other Frizz-Ease products from John Frieda, but I won't be buying this again. It really does last a long time though, because you only need a tiny bit each time you use it, the bottle looks tiny when you buy it, but it goes a long way! John Frieda's 'Downplay' serum from the Frizz-Ease line does MUCH more though for those of us who want less bulk to our hair!
I found this on clearance $1 at my local grocer, so I decided to give it a try. I really wanted to like this product, but it makes my hair feel weighed down and oily. I used very little and tried to spread it out as even as possible, but no matter how little I used, it still seemed to make my hair feel greasy.
I have thick, straight Asian hair. When I had a perm (spiral curls), this was THE BEST product! Make sure that your hair is still wet when you apply it to get it evenly distributed. I found that I needed quite a bit so the fact that it comes in such a tiny bottle made it very expensive. However, it was so great at defining the curl when I used my diffuser to dry my hair. It left the hair shiny and smooth looking, even with the dryness of the perm. I would definitely recommend it.
I received a sample of this a while ago. Never bother to use because I'm not much of a fan of "serum" hair products. Until one day I ran out of thermal protect spray and need an substitute to tame my frizzy hair before blow drying. Since I'm afraid it will be greasy on my hair, I only rubbed a little bit through my hair. After I blow-dry my hair, omg, it worked like a miracle. My hair was frizz-free, shiny and smooth. This is a must have for me from now on.
