Beach Style and Luxurious Volume with John Frieda

Hey Everyone!

Hope you're all well, I'm having a bit of a lazy Sunday today and after a few hours shopping I'm back inside with my music on and working on the blog.

Today I'm going to talk a little bit about some hair products I've been trying out for the past few weeks from John Frieda and give you my first impressions based on my experience so far.

First there are the Beach Blonde Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo* and Smooth Seas Detangling Conditioner*. You might have seen that (THE) Lauren Conrad is collaborating with John Frieda on the collection and over the next few months there will be exclusive content posted online helping to master your best, most beachy styles ever! Now you might be thinking, hang on a minute Sally, are you blonde now? Don't worry I wouldn't keep something that big from you guys! The beach blonde range is suitable for both blondes and brunettes, basically anyone looking for cool beachy styles so it's open to everyone.

My first thoughts of the shampoo were that it smells gorgeously minty and is what I what call a "deep clean" shampoo, one that will get rid of any styling product residue and thoroughly cleanse your hair leaving it feeling really clean, fresh and soft. I really like the scent, it lasted throughout the day and was very fresh and energizing, also I felt it added a little bit of texture to my normally poker straight hair.

The conditioner in short is a god send, I suffer quite a lot with tangles and I always worry about damaging my hair so a detangling product before styling is just perfect. I applied it to my hair and then gave it a once over with my wide tooth comb to make sure the product is distributed evenly and the comb glided through with no pulling! The dried result was lovely shiny, soft hair and I had noticeably less flyaways and frizzy bits.

Now this finally brings me on to a product from the Luxurious Volume range, the 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment*. This product was literally made for my hair type, it's perfect for fine hair as it adds volume by penetrating each fiber and amplifying each strand to give a lift that will last through multiple washes as it is a semi-permanent 7 day treatment. For someone like me that uses a tonne of styling products to achieve the same, if not less volume, this product is going to be one I will repurchase time and time again. It made my hair look and feel so much more bouncy and voluminous which in turn made my hair look lovely and thick and healthy.

The treatment is applied after your shampoo and conditioner while still in the shower, you just need 3-4 pumps depending on how thick/long your hair is. Make sure you fully cover your hair all over including the underneath parts and give some attention to your roots, after 3-5 minutes you simply rinse the product out and blowdry and style as normal. To give even more amplifed results blowdry your hair upside down, trust me it will look awesome!

I hope you found this review helpful, the three products worked fabulously on my hair and I have always had great experiences with John Frieda especially the frizz ease range which I've sworn by for years.
