This post is brought to you by John Frieda. All opinions are 100% mine.
Ever since I started coloring my hair (which was only a couple of years ago; I waited until the grays started to torment me and decided it was time to give up the ghost and join the rest of the civilized world) I started buying my hair care products at the salon. I could definitely tell a difference in the way my hair looked and felt and covinced myself that it was worth taking out a second mortgage on my house to protect my precious color. I’ve been pretty faithful to that salon brand for several years now, but it ain’t easy on the old pocketbook and I’ve wondered if it was truly necessary.
Then a few weeks ago, I was invited to try out some John Frieda hair care products. I figured I had no reason not to give it a shot. I was actually at the end of my last color cycle and reasoned that if it did anything awful to my hair, I’d be going to the salon soon anyway.
My box arrived with not just a few bottles to try but a whole slew of full-sized John Frieda hair care products for my experimentation purposes.
Even though they claim to be salon quality, I was still skeptical, but I posted a photo on Instagram and immediately got a bunch of positive comments about the hair care line.
Encouraged, I chose the two red bottles to try first — the John Frieda Full Repair shampoo and conditioner — and placed them in my shower. The next day I tried them out and found that I LOVE the texture it gave my hair. It was smooth and silky and softer than normal. And it didn’t turn my hair color orange or purple, so that was a plus as well.
I used those products for about a week and then returned to my salon for a fresh cut and color. I didn’t admit to my hair stylist that I was cheating on him and using contraband hair products. But when I went home, I switched over to using the Brilliant Brunette Color Protecting products.
I still loved the texture of my hair, and I felt good about protecting my new hair color.
Since then I’ve experimented with almost every product in the collection. I like the Frizz Ease because my hair tends to frizz out a bit, but I still really love the first one I tried — the Full Repair line. That’s the one I brought with me to California to use while I’m here at the Mom 2.0 Summit.
This photo was taken in the early afternoon, after I’d been to church and out to lunch, and you can see that my hair stayed smooth all day (although it could certainly have used a comb. Ooops!)
I really do find these products to be comparable to the salon products I was using, and the price is significantly less. Plus, I don’t have to wait till I can get to the salon to buy them because they’re readily available at Walmart and other drugstores.
