John Frieda Full Repair: Strengthen + Restore
I’m awash with new shampoos and conditioners to review lately, which means my tresses are super shiny and clean. John Frieda’s Full Repair range is new and very affordable, addressing the common concerns of overworked, damaged hair from styling tools and such.
It boasts a strengthening formula with the exotic sounding Inca Inchi Oil and it’s rich in omega-3, which apparently reverses the look and feel of damaged hair to give bouncy, shiny locks and…oh, you get the picture.
Full Repair is on my carousel of hair stuff that I have on rotation and I admit it’s taken me by surprise. There is always that hesitation of using shampoos that promise the world for a few quid. Fortunately Full Repair has left my hair feeling nourished, very soft and shiny to run my fingers through and without that awful feeling of hair suffocating at the roots. It’s quite rich for my fine hair which is why I reserve use of it once a week. I am also trying not to become too dependent on sulphate and sodium chloride filled products.
I don’t believe there is any shampoo out there that magically repairs split ends though. Any brand that makes such claims is being plain silly. Only a regular trim will keep them at a low.
The John Frieda Full Repair Repairing Oil Elixir is something I use sparingly because I am nervous of adding hair oils when my hair goes greasy every other day. It’s basically a product to give a boost to shine and smoothness. It’s not a product I am likely to repurchase (unlike the shampoo and conditioner) because I don’t think I would get much use out of it. Besides, I am not Rapunzel.
The shampoo and conditioner are priced at £5.89 with the oil at £9.99 and are available at such retailers as Boots.
