I actually don’t think I’ve ever done a hair related beauty post, so this is a first! But I got a sachet of this amazing sounding hair mask from a friend so I wanted to try it out and see if it was worth buying a bigger tub. The John Frieda Frizz Ease range has been around for forever it seems, and I remember trying the shampoo and conditioner when I was a teenager. I thought it did an excellent job then, but looking back now with all I’ve learnt since then, I know that really it was entirely wrong for my teenage hair and left it heavy and weighed down with product.
A once weekly deep conditioning treatment is an excellent hair care idea, so I’m going to try a few out and see how I get on. I don’t use any heat on my hair, and I only colour it maybe three or four times a year if that, so it’s in pretty good condition I’d say. But it can be rather unruly and I get a ton of flyaways even when my hair is tied back, so a lovely conditioning mask might just help to sleek it up and calm it down a bit!
The Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Deep Mask is designed to be used once a week, so I was a bit worried it might end up being a really heavy product. The consistency of the mask is really thick, so for my amount of hair it really had to be combed through to ensure I’d got every inch covered. I have to say though the tester sachet is actually a really nice size. If you didn’t have such long, thick hair as I do then you’d definitely get more than one use out of it which I think is excellent.
So I took a before and after photo of my hair so you (and I) can see the immediate effect of the mask. Here’s what my hair looked like before washing it and using the mask:
And here’s what it looked like after:
As a first impression, I have to say the John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery seems to be really rather nice. It’s a lovely thick consistency, smells amazing, and it felt really hydrating when using it. My hair immediately after felt really smooth as well, and I didn’t feel like it was weighed down by tons of product. I definitely noticed that as my hair dried it did start to feel a little heavier than it usually would do, but actually after a day or so it ended up feeling much the same as it otherwise would have done. I can’t say I noticed that it became greasier any quicker, or that I felt like I had to wash my hair more frequently, so I’d say compared to my previous Frizz Ease experience, it’s a much lighter product now.
All in all I’m ok with this hair treatment. Would I use it again? Maybe. But would I buy a whole tub and use it religiously? Probably not. It hasn’t left me completely in love with it, and while my hair did feel really nice and smooth, I felt like it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be achieved by simply leaving my normal conditioner in for longer.
If you’ve used this treatment before I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. And if anyone has any truly amazing hair masks that I should try out then definitely let me know – I’m on a hunt!
