I’m the first to admit, I torture my hair. It’s not a nice thing to admit, but it’s the truth.
Each day I start with blow drying my hair with high heat, and then I use a hair straightener to make my dry, damaged and frizzy hair look sleek and straight. In it’s natural state, my hair is nowhere near what I want it to be.
I know every day that I go through my styling routine I’m not doing my hair any favors, but it’s a vicious cycle I can’t break!
I recently started trying some new products from John Frieda® to see if I could repair some of the damage I have done, create a new routine that is a bit more loving to my locks, and can give me that sleek and straight look I am going for.
My hair savior has absolutely been the John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® Hi-Impact Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner.
After one wash, my hair already felt moisturized and rejuvenated. The formula was meant for blondes, and the shampoo helped to protect the colour of my hair. My hair felt much softer and more smooth each time I used it. A week after I had been using these products my hair felt like it was already on the road to recovery!
Next up in my new arsenal of products was the John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® Hi-Impact Restoring Oil Elixir.
After jumping out of the shower I would spray my damp hair through the ends of my hair. I’ve always had a very oily scalp, but I noticed this formula was lightweight and didn’t make my hair oily at all.
The product contains sunflower oil, which repairs damaged hair and replenishes blonde hair.
I can’t stand it when my hair becomes a brassy shade of yellow instead of blonde. The John Frieda® Sheer Blonde® Hi-Impact Restoring Oil Elixir not only strengthens hair, but also brightens up dull hair by repairing damage and replenishing the colour.
One of the best ways to combat damaged hair is less processing.
I knew I had to use styling heat less often, but it was a difficult habit to crack. I tried out the John Frieda® Frizz-Ease® 3-Day Straight™ Flat Iron Spray to see if it lived up to its name.
I evenly sprayed the product onto my wet (or towel-dried hair), combed it through my hair, and then used my blow-dryer on my hair as usual.
Once I actually finished straightening my hair it was transformed into a sleek, straight look that was shiny and seemed salon-styled. The heat-activated formula wraps each strand to protect against heat damage, block frizz, and keep your strands straight for days.
My style lasted until my next shampoo which I spread out to every two days, and my glossy locks stayed straight right up until then.
Needing to wash and heat style my hair less meant I was saving my strands from over processing them, so I really loved the John Frieda® Frizz-Ease® 3-Day Straight™ Flat Iron Spray.
Using all of these products has not only repaired some of the damage I had already done to my hair, but it has also helped prevent future damage as well.
I love what my hair is looking like now – smooth, straight, shiny, and a little livelier since I have been using this arsenal of products!
