John Frieda Full Repair Line

I have slowly been collecting different hair products from the new John Frieda Full Repair line and I'm finally ready to write up a little review. In my opinion, John Frieda makes some of the best hair products that you can get at a drugstore. Sooo when I saw that a bunch of new products were coming out I got pretty psyched.
John Frieda Full Repair Products
The first thing I purchased was the "Flyaway Tamer." I was so excited about this product because nothing seems to help the little hairs that stick up on the top of my head. After blow drying and teasing, the hair at my roots sometimes breaks and I've tried everything to keep them down. Before this, I was using pomeade or hairspray, but the John Frieda Flyaway Tamer works so much better. It's basically like a clear mascara. It literally has a mascara wand. The only con I can find is the product is very wet feeling when first applied and if you apply too much it will make your hair stiff feeling in some spots.

The next product I tried from the line was the "Perfect Ends Deep Infusion." My ends are insanely dry and to make matters worse I am in dire need of a haircut. I normally use Redken Anti-Snap to moisturize my ends and help prevent split ends. The past couple of weeks I've only been using the John Frieda Deep Infusion on my ends and they look sooooo much better. My hair actually looks shiny for a change. After one use I could tell that it was going to be a great product. Another plus is that it actually protects your hair from high heat. So, some facts about the product:
  •  It is formulated for medium textured hair
  • Contains Inchi Oil which is rich in Omega-3
  • Safe for color treated hair
Literally the only down-side to this product will be the price at around $10.

Last but not least, I tried the John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo. I have bought this in place of my Redken Color Extend shampoo and I was so close to not purchasing it until I saw that it is also safe for color treated hair. That is always a huge concern for me because I dye my hair and highlight it every so often. To be honest, I have only used it one time, BUT after one use it made my hair feel so soft and less tangled. I I also noticed that it lathered really nicely. That's one thing I was missing when using the Redken shampoo. Anyway, the shampoo costs around $6. There is also a conditioner from the line, a root lifting foam, and a sheer mist spray for your ends. The whole line seems great and I also wanted to note that everything from Full Repair smells amaaaazing!
