Despite straightening my hair to within an inch of it's life as a teenager, I'm now more than happy to embrace my natural curls and waves. so when John Frieda got in touch to ask if I'd like to be part of their Curl Collective, I was immediately intrigued and excited to take part.
Having tried some of their Frizz Ease products in the past, namely the shampoo and conditioner, I was looking forward to seeing how the selection of products that I had been sent, dealt with my newly chopped locks.
Since my last foray into the Frizz Ease range, everything has had a complete makeover and a couple of new products have been introduced to what is now called the Dream Curls line.
The shampoo and conditioner were as good as I had remembered, which was great. They clean and hydrate the hair without it feeling like your hair is laden with lots of product.
But what I was most excited about, when it came to the Dream Curls range, were the styling products.
To be totally honest, I rarely apply anything additional to my hair, other than the odd mist of hairspray, when it comes to styling products, so I was very eager to try some of these out.
Now that my hair is that bit shorter (it's collar bone length, as you will have seen if you saw/read the blog post where I met Charlotte Tilbury), my curls have hopped up, instead of being weighed down, like they are when my hair is longer. So having and using the Dream Curls styling products has made keeping those curls looking good and from falling, a reality and not a dream.
The mousse works as you would expect it to without leaving your hair feeling crispy or crunchy, like so many other hair mousses do. The calming cream is ideal for keeping real frizz at bay. The styling foam is perfect when it comes to air drying your hair. And the daily styling spray really has become a daily essential of mine. My hair feels silkier than ever and it looks so much more shinier than it normally does. I think I've found my dream haircare routine (pardon the pun) when it comes to keeping my natural curls looking and feeling great, as well as creating additional curls myself. However, I do really want to properly put the range to the test on curls like those created by the Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler. Can you tell that that's on my Christmas list this year? Hehe.
You'll find the John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls range at Boots, Superdrug, Feel Unique, Amazon and most supermarkets.
Does your hair get frizzy? Or what is your main concern when it comes to your hair? And have you tried either the Frizz Ease range or the John Frieda range more generally? If so, what were your thoughts?
