John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Conditioner Review

It's been a really busy week and I'm really sorry I hadn't been able to write a post for Wednesday like I normally do. I'm afraid this is going to be the case for the next month or so. I have exams coming up and after that I'll be going overseas (on holiday). So please bear with me! I promise I do have some awesome tutorials planned, they just require a lot of time to make so they won't be up on this blog anytime soon. And yes, this also means that majority of my posts for the next month will be mainly reviews.

So, until I return from my trip around mid December, I'll only schedule posts for once a week. But after that, it'll be back to the normal schedule of twice a week (Wed and Sat). I also promise I will make it up to you guys. *hint hint* Giveaway to come! 

Anyway, let's dive into this review!

Review: My hair has been feeling a bit dry lately. Perhaps it's due to the change in weather but it's really unhappy. I rarely get breakage and split-ends up they've suddenly popped up. I keep trimming them off for "damage control" but I know that I'd need a more long-term solution. Introducing...! Nah, I better stop sounding like an advert. So, I was sent the Full Repair range to try out. Although I have yet to see a reduction in breakage and split-ends, I do have positive findings to report.

Most hydration/repair type of hair care products weigh the hair down so we tend to lose body and volume as a compromise for soft silky strands. With this trio, I noticed that volume is retained and it adds moisture back into my hair. This is particularly true with the Deep Conditioner. I love how soft my hair feels after using it. All three products have similar scents. I'm happy to announce that it's pleasant and non-irritating to my sensitive nose. The formula is slightly "gel-like" and the shampoo lathers up relatively easily.

Word of warning, once you've used the Deep Conditioner, you'll find that the Conditioner is not as "powerful" in comparison and will be tempted to just stick to the Deep Conditioner. Too much of a good thing is never good, you should use it in moderation. Plus it'll be quite costly to use it as your everyday conditioner. Just make sure you cover all of your hair with Shampoo, not just your scalp. Rinse off. Apply Conditioner. WAIT for a minute. Rinse off. If you're in a hurry to wash the conditioner off, it will not get the chance to work its magic. I've been guilty of this crime before.

I hope that with continued use, the next time I post an updated review, my hair will be damage-free!

Do you suffer from split-ends and breakage like I do? Do share your hair woes!
