John Frieda’s conditioner gives a boost to flat hair leaving it looking bouncy and bright thanks to its brightening extracts. The product gives magnificent results but I definitely would alter a few things about the product if I could.
I first tried John Frieda’s products about two years ago. I had been given a lovely John Frieda gift set from my brothers ex girlfriend which included the shampoo conditioner and gleam crème for instant silky hair in the sheer blonde collection. I really loved the way my hair look and felt after using the shampoo and conditioner so I started to use it religiously and bought the shampoo and conditioner on several accounts. The reason I stopped using the products was although my hair looked the most radiant and volumised it had looked, I almost felt like I was ruining my hair when I used these products because they are so heavily scented and it didn’t seem very natural to put it onto my hair as strange as it sounds.
Despite the fact the product is heavily scented and seemed to heavy to put on my hair ( I prefer more natural lightweight products on my fine blonde hair) I did like how wonderful the conditioner was on getting knots out of my hair. My hair is naturally wavy/ curly and so after I have had a shower it tends to get a bit knotty and frizzy but whenever I used this product it got rid of all the knots on my hair and looked really sleek and smooth.]
The price of the John Frieda conditioner is fairly average; it’s £4.79 for 250ml which is the same price as the shampoo in the sheer blonde collection. Some people would find this price too high but it does offer really good hair salon results that most cheap conditioners wouldn't leave so I found the price fairly good. It comes in a golden bottle which suits the name of the collection perfectly, it doesn’t look like a cheap conditioner it’s packaged in a squishy bottle a bit like Sunsilks bottles but a little bit classier due to the nice golden shade they have picked. You can’t really complain about the look of the packaging, it looks really nice the problem is getting the conditioner out when it’s running low because it seems to stick to the side of the tube you have to try and make sure that when you want to get conditioner out of the bottle you squeeze from the bottom instead of the top as conditioner will stick to the sides and you will have trouble getting it out unless you cut the bottle in half to get the rest out.
I wasn’t disappointed in the John Frieda conditioner because it does everything it claims to do. Before using the conditioner my hair felt really dry at the ends but thanks to the moisturises in the conditioner my hair felt really soft and not at all dry or brittle like initially.
I only used this conditioner occasionally when I owned it because it seemed to be a product which would cause a lot of build up because of how moisturising it is and didn’t seem at all like a lightweight product so I didn’t want to put it on my hair all the time, I used it approximately once a week or sometimes once every two or three week so it wouldn’t do any damage to my hair. I would use the John Frieda conditioner again if I had to, I probably wouldn’t go out and buy it but it’s not an offensive product it is probably better for people who have thicker hair because it seemed too heavy for someone who had fine hair. The John Frieda conditioner really enhances your hair colour and makes it look really healthy and blonde I just wish it was a more lightweight product like my other shampoos which contain natural ingredients.
