John Frieda Frizz-Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner

Um, yeah, its been a while since my last post. I don't have an excuse except for the fact that I needed a break. I just haven't been home that much to blog but I take that as a sign that I am enjoying the summer, right?!

Having been out and about in this summer heat has actually allowed me to put some beauty products to the test. Especially hair products that claim to moisturize and control frizz.

For example, after some success with Frizz Ease Creme Serum Overnight Repair Formula, I had high hopes for John Frieda's Frizz Daily Nourishment Ease Leave-In Conditioner. I liked the idea of a conditioner in a spray bottle that I can use to touch up dry parts of my hair (like the ends) this summer when the heat and humidity begin to parch my tresses.

My grade? I can't say I loved this spray-on leave-in. In theory, it could be moisturizing. But when I spray it on dry hair and let it soak in, I end up getting patches of oiliness in my hair where I have applied the product. I don't know, maybe I am not spraying from far enough?!

I had better luck with this product when I used it as a post-shower detangler. When my hair was towel dried and damp, I sprayed it on and combed it through with nary a tangle. It was a nice effect, but just not what I was looking for in a product. As a result, I recommend this product for women with fine hair that don't need help in the frizz department but could use a light detangler. If you have thick, coarse hair like mine, this product is too light for us and just won't cut the frizz.

  • Spray on application so don't worry have to getting hands messy
  • Pleasant scent
  • Great detangler
  • Good for thin or fine hair
  • Doesn't weigh hair down
  • Good deal at around $6
  • Inconsistent application
  • Does little to battle frizz and poufiness once hair is dry
  • Bad for thick/coarse hair
