Product Review: John Freida Smooth Straight

Monday, November 12, 2012


I have never been a fan of John Freida's frizz ease. When I started my journey I naturally went for the big brands and Frizz Ease was for curly hair, I even ordered the Relaxed Hair Care Shampoo and Conditioner specifically for Afro Textured hair that has been relaxed all the way from America back in the naughties. These did nothing for my hair and this was more money wasted on products I had to at the time import from the US. I have also been slightly wary because the Frizz ease definition of curly was never synonymous with mine.

So when I was given the chance to review their new Smooth Start range, I thought well cant hurt to give it a go. The products were:
John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo
John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Conditioner
Frizz Ease Extra Strength Formula Hair Serum



I started with the John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo

The Speil: Nourishes each and every strand of hair to replenish lost moisture and restore the hair's natural defence against frizz.
  • Contains Frizz-Mending complex and natural olive oil. 
  • Fights all levels of frizz with added nourishment and a moisture-boost. 
  • Leaves parched tresses silky, shiny and highly manageable. 
  • Ensures hair is given the optimal smooth start leaving parched tresses silky, shiny and highly manageable, without residue. 
  • Lightweight formulations that won't weigh the hair down but deliver exceptional results. 
Verdict: After a month trialling this I was not overly enamoured with this shampoo. Shampoos generally leave my hair feeling a little dry and this was no exception. My hair was alittle too clean for my liking and had a weird feel after washing.

I did however like the smell. If you read this blog ou know the smell of a product is very important to me. It was like a papaya scent or something of that ilk and didn't smell chemically.

Next I tried the John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Conditioner


The Speil:Specially formulated for all hair types and hair colours.
  • Nourishes each and every strand of hair to replenish lost moisture and restore the hair's natural defence against frizz. 
  • Contains a unique Frizz-Mending Complex, together with natural olive oil Fights all levels of frizz with added nourishment and a moisture-boost. 
  • Ensures hair is given the optimal smooth start leaving parched tresses silky, shiny and highly manageable, without residue. 
  • Lightweight formulations that won't weigh the hair down but deliver exceptional results. 
Verdict: This was hands sown my absolute favourite of the three products. It really did make my hair feel soft and moisturised. Again it had that papaya like smell that I liked so I did really enjoy using this. Definitely worth trying and of the three I would purchase this again.



Lastly I tried the Frizz Ease Extra Strength Formula Hair Serum

The Speil:

  • Blocks frizz. 
  • Instantly and dramatically transforms coarse, wiry, unruly frizz for ultra-sleek, purely polished, super-shiny results. 
  • A high-potency blend of silicones infused with Algae extract and Silk protien. 
  • Leaves dry, defiant hair extremely supple, easy to manage and healthy-looking. 
  • Repels humidity to help prevent weather-related frizz. 
  • Contains a UV filter. 

Verdict: For my hair this serum just seemed incredibly greasy and I did not like the feel of it. However I have never been a fan of serums as they have a weird feel in your hand. If you like serums then perhaps this product may be for you.


All in all the conditioner was my absolute favourite, great smell and great product. Please that I had some luck with a Frizz Ease product as i have not in the past. Mixed feeling about this range.
