I first purchased John Frieda Full Repair hair products when they were o offer in Tesco's for three for £10. They are so much more expensive to buy now and thy never seem to be on offer any more, but I keep a look out every time I pop to the supermarket, just on the off chance,. I have used, and still am using the Full Repair shampoo and I also use the conditioner too. They are both great products and I really do highly rate them. The container looks like an oversized tube of toothpaste in a sort of ruby red colour, almost like a dark cherry. The container looks almost identical to the shampoo and you have to be really careful that you read the front of the tubes to make sure you are not using conditioner when you are meant to be using shampoo, and vice versa. I absolutely hate the top on this tube and using it in the shower is a complete nightmare. If my hands are wet, (which they will be, as I am in the shower, obviously), it is nigh on impossible to be able to remove the lid as it is always stuck down really hard. For this reason, I have to always make sure that I have ever so slightly pulled the top loose before I get into the shower. The conditioner itself is a creamy off white colour and medium level thickness in consistency. I love the smell of this conditioner. It's not a floral smell but it has a kind of creamy butter fragrance that I find really lovely. It spreads out evenly over my hair and immediately I notice that it's detangled it and it feels smooth. It rinses off well afterwards and when my hair has been dried and styled there is a definite improvement to my locks. My hair feels fuller, with ore volume, my style holds its own and overall my hair just looks in much better condition. I have greasy roots and very dry ends but this shampoo seems to level out in that it has the ability to make my dry ends more hydrated but at the same time, my roots are not affected by the effects of the added moisture. It's expensive to buy now at full price (£7 last time I looked) but one tube lasts for ages and as it is such a nice product, the price won't deter me from buying any more. Love it.
One of my recent campaigns as a Bzz Agent has been trialling John Frieda's Full Repair shampoo and conditioner, I've been incredibly impressed by both products but especially so with the conditioner as it leaves my hair so healthy looking and actually does help to repair the hair issues I have (unlike most conditioners, which tend to smooth and disguise hair problems rather than actually dealing with them). I've been using it after washing my hair with the matching Full Repair shampoo and when used together the effects are surprisingly good. The conditioner is supplied in an attractive red tube which is instantly recognisable as John Frieda as it compliments the other hair care ranges they produce, the tube contains 250ml of conditioner but I believe smaller travel size tubes are also available in places like Boots. The flip top lid, like the one on the shampoo tube, is very well designed; chunky so that I can grasp and use it regardless of how slippery and wet my hands are, while having a hole that will allow me to dispense the correct amount of conditioner. The conditioner has a thinner consistency than I was expecting and is fairly drippy. It's easy to squeeze too much out of the tube and for the sake of economy I'd suggest you use as little as possible, simply due to the fact that if you put too much into your hand in one go you'll just end up dripping it down your body as you apply and waste more than you use! There isn't a specific fragrance to this conditioner, it has a creamy smell but really just has a generic conditioner aroma that's nothing to write home about but isn't offensive in any way either. I apply to the ends and length of my hair, avoiding the roots for the usual reason of conditioner near the roots of your hair could cause greasiness to develop quickly - and this is always bad news! The thin consistency makes it incredibly easy to spread through my hair and just by using my fingertips I'm able to coat each individual hair in this surprisingly luxurious conditioner, from the instant I apply it my hair feels healthier and I can literally feel it absorbing into each hair to smooth and condition them. I always leave my conditioner on my hair for a few minutes and when I rinse Full Repair off I'm amazed by how soft and sleek my (still wet) hair feels, it's ridiculously easy to rinse by the way and simply runs off my hair as I stand under the shower. The conditioner leaves absolutely no residue in my hair (I've had issues with John Frieda products not rinsing properly in the past) and after I get out of the shower I am able to brush my hair straightaway as it rids me of any knots and tangles, a minor miracle for me as my hair has the unfortunate problem of knotting almost to the point of dreadlocks when it's wet! The magic ingredient in John Frieda's Full Repair conditioner is Inca Inchi Oil, a highly prized oil which has been known as a 'miracle' beauty product since ancient times with Incan women using it as part of their daily rituals. I can tell it's the oil providing the smooth feeling to my hair, and suspect the added Omega-3 helps to do the actual physical repair to my hair. It has a tiny feeling of oily slipperiness when I pour it into my hand from the tube, but thankfully this doesn't transfer to my hair and Full Repair is actually a really lovely conditioner to use. I don't style my hair and it's simply brushed and loose or tied up in a ponytail, I've noticed a small improvement in the volume of my hair when I have it loose but it's negligible really and doesn't last too long anyway - my daughter has a tousled hairstyle and tells me she can see a huge difference since she started using the Full Repair shampoo and conditioner, like me giving the bulk of the credit to the conditioner. I wash my hair each morning when I shower and find my hair behaves well throughout the day, never becoming limp or weighed down despite the conditioner being an oil based one. It's rich enough to work wonders on my hair, but light at the same time and doesn't add any weight whatsoever to my rather basic hairstyles. One brilliant effect of the conditioner is the gorgeous shine it gives my hair, this becomes apparent as soon as my hair is dry and lasts all day long. It's not just shine either, my hair looks glossy and healthy while there's a definite brighter tone to my colour - this conditioner really does make my hair look and feel fabulous. Price-wise the Full Repair conditioner, like the shampoo, is on a par with other John Frieda products. Luckily, as the £5 - £6 price tag is a bit hefty, this brand is usually on special offer in one supermarket or another and thus far I've managed to avoid paying full price. I will do eventually though as I love this conditioner so much that I plan to continue buying it until I find something better. And I don't think it really gets much better than this.
If you read my previous review on the John Frieda full repair shampoo you will know that I stocked up on various hair care products at only 38 pence each. One of these cheap products I bought was this John Frieda full repair conditioner. The conditioner can be purchased from the normal places that sell hair care products such as supermarkets, Boots and Superdrug. It usually costs between £5 to £7 but can often be found on a three products for £10 offer. The packaging for this conditioner is a little annoying when you are using it alongside the shampoo as they are identical. They are both 250ml red tubes with the lid on the bottom of the tube, the only difference is one says shampoo and the other says conditioner. It's frustrating having to examine each bottle mid shower to make sure you are picking up the product that you want to use! The flip top lid is easy to open and I can do it with only my thumb so there is no faffing around once you have the correct tube. The consistency of the conditioner when it's first squeezed out is runnier than other conditioners I have used but I wouldn't say it is overly runny, it is a pearly white colour and matches the fragrance of the shampoo with a slight sweet smell to it. It is easy to run through the ends of my hair and any leftover product in my hands gets smoothed over the top of my head too. I usually leave the conditioner to work its magic for a few minutes after applying it then rinse it off. I find that the conditioner does take quite a bit of rinsing before every last trace has disappeared but I don't really mind this. Once my hair has dried and been styled I am impressed with the results. My hair is damaged from all of the heat I use on it on a daily basis. I use the conditioner alongside the matching shampoo and it really does give my hair a new lease of life, it looks healthy and hydrated and stays clean for longer without looking or becoming greasy. I would definitely recommend this John Frieda full repair conditioner; it is easy to apply and gives fantastic results. I just hope they will change the packaging so it is slightly different from the shampoo making it easier to pick up the correct product when you are mid shower!
This John Freida Full Repair Conditioner cost me £4.99 for a 250ml bottle which is a reasonable price given the quality of the product The packaging is nice and distinctive, a dark red tube with white lettering and a white flip top lid that also serves as the base for the product to stand upright when not in use, I always like this style of design as it means the contents are always drained to the bottom near the nozzle so it is easy to get out especially when the contents start to run low. The conditioner is infused with inca inchy oil which is not something I have heard of before however it is meant to assist with the repair of damaged hair and whatever it is and whatever it actually is supposed to do all I know is that this conditioner is very effective at leaving my hair with a nice soft feel to it and a lot of body and bounce as well. It is a rich white creamy conditioner that is best left in the hair for a few minutes to allow it to get to work, I tend to apply it at the start of a shower after using my shampoo and then when I have finished washing my body it is ready to be rinsed out. It has a nice fresh smell that you are aware of but it is no way over powering. My hair is so manageable after using this product, it is really easy to brush and this conditioner really does ensure that there are no nasty tangles to deal with, i would not say that my hair was particularly badly damaged before using this conditioner but it had become a bit lifeless and frayed looking and this conditioner certainly helped to inject some new life into my hair and left it with a healthy shine to it as well. I would certainly recommend this product as I noticed the improvement in the condition of my hair after using it.
I am a bzzagent and get sent products to test from time to time. I was lucky enough recently to be sent this conditioner to try for free. My hair was in a total state before receiving this product. I have been dying it far too often and it had really started to take its toll on my hair. The product comes in a stylish red tube, it looks like a salon product. I wasn't convince this was going to live up to it claims but I didn't care as free products are always a welcome bonus. When I first gave it a try I use the same make of shampoo first which was nice then moved on to the conditioner. I read the instructions which stated it should be left on for 2-5 mins for an intense treatment. To give this product a fair chance as my hair was in such a state I left it on for the full 5 mins suggested. The product has a nice fresh smell is good texture not too running or too think and is white in colour. I actully truthfully noticed a difference after the first wash, my hair somehow felt softer and smoother. Once it was dry and styled I was very please with my hair. I have continued to use both the shampoo and conditioner and the difference in my hair is amazing. A number of people have commented how great my hair looks recently and the only thing I've been doing differently is using these products. Recommended
As a member of the BzzAgent website, I was recently sent samples of the John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to test. This isn't a range I would have chosen to purchase myself - as I don't have much faith in hair products which claim to have an impressive effect on my hair, I usually stick to cheaper products. However I was happy to try the range, and as usual hoped it would do some good for my hair. My hair is very long and fine, and really isn't in very good condition. It is dry and frizzy, quite flyaway and breaks easily. The John Frieda Full Repair range makes a claim of repairing damage caused by excessive styling, but also of preventing damage. I don't think my hair is damaged from excessive styling, but maybe the cause of the damage doesn't really matter. The John Frieda Full Repair Conditioner comes in a dark red tube. The conditioner itself is white, and is very easy to dispense from the tube. It is fairly runny for a conditioner, but not so much that it escapes from your hand before you get it onto your hair. I find it very easy to smooth the conditioner through my hair. It doesn't just coat the outside of my hair and then need working through, it goes right through my hair without much effort. This is a definite good point for me, as combing my fingers through my hair when applying products can result in quite a bit of hair coming loose in my hands. The instructions say to leave the conditioner on for a few minutes. I don't time it, but I think I usually leave it on for about two minutes. It rinses out of my hair reasonably easily, but I notice a residue tends to need washing off the back of my neck. This happens with most conditioners, but most can be rinsed off easily, whereas I do need to use some shower gel to get the John Frieda Full Repair Conditioner off my neck. The first few times I used the shampoo and conditioner, I didn't notice much difference in my hair. It wasn't having a negative effect, but it didn't seem to be doing much good either. Then on the fourth or fifth occasion, there was a sudden change, which has continued since. Once dry, my hair seemed much shinier than usual and also quite a bit less prone to tangles. It is easy to brush and style, and although there is no extra volume (something my hair badly needs), it really does seem to be smoother and shinier. I'm not sure this is classed as "repair" as such, but it was definitely a positive. However I think there might be a slight negative as well. I keep my hair pleated at night, as otherwise I end up getting it stuck under pillows and pulling it painfully. Since starting to use the John Frieda Full repair range, my hair seems to be getting more tangled and messier on the top of my head than previously. I can't be sure if this is an effect of the conditioner, but I think it started around when I began using the products. I've chosen to write this review about the conditioner, as I expect it is that which is making my hair shinier and smoother, but it could be an effect of using the shampoo and conditioner together.I'm quite impressed with the John Frieda Full Repair range, and it is refreshing to actually notice a difference in the condition of my hair which I'm certain is down to the products I am using. I can't say whether I'll buy it once my samples have finished, as the cheaper brands will probably win out due to price, but I'll definitely look out for offers.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to be selected to try out this John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Conditioner as part of my role as a Bzz agent in my spare time, where I get to try out products and then write a report of my opinion on the product. In fact, as part of the trial I actually received a full size tube of this product which usually retails anywhere around the £7 mark, although is currently on offer in Tesco for £4. I have already tried the John Frieda Full REpair shampoo as part of the trial as well, and was happy with the product, so I did anticipate the same from the start. Now, I don't regularly use or buy conditioner but I have used it in the past at times when necessary or when I have picked up a bottle on offer. I have been using this conditioner, not everyday, but every other day for the past couple of weeks and been as equally impressed. The John Frieda Full REpair range of products has been designed for those with overstyled or coloured hair in an effort to help repair some of the damage caused by this. As well as repairing damage however, this product claims to leave hair looking full of body, smooth, without tangle and aims to reduce snagging or breaking form combing and brushing. IT does this through its use of Inca Inchi, a natural oil grown in the Amazon rainforest, which is rich in Omega 3 and 6 and it is also claimed that this is the only range of shampoos and conditioners that contain this natural oil. When using this conditioner, you can either simply apply through hair and wash out, or leave for longer to get a deep conditioning treatment. I have only ever left it on my hair for up to 5 minutes, simply because with a toddler, I don't have the time to wait any longer for it. However, I find it long enough for what I need. My hair is styled everyday with blow drying and straighteners so I am sure it is damaged, though I don't think it looks or feels overly so. When washed out and my hair is dried it looks healthy, shiny, feels silky smooth to touch and looks like it has added volume, which my fine limp hair desperately needs. Overall, I love the way this conditioner leaves my hair, which is why I have been using it every other day, more than I have every used a conditioner before. EVerytime I use this conditioner, it makes my hair look in such good shiny, smooth conditioner, and I love the way it feels. In regards to the price, I think I would pay the reduced price of £4 at present, but to be honest full price at £7 is simply out of my budget range and I couldn't justify it no matter how good it is.
*** My Hair History - Just SKIP this paragraph if you want to get straight to the product review!*** First of all a little history on my hair. I didn't go to the hairdressers for nearly 4yrs but had perfect long blonde hair down below my bra strap that everyone always complimented. I bleached it at home with a 'Wella Hair Streaking Kit' & would just trim the (split) ends myself. It was always in excellent condition, for bleach blonde hair. Anyway, I decided after 10 years of being a bleach blonde.. I was going to do something drastic. I dyed it black. Worst. Mistake. Of. My. Life. It was in okay condition when it was black. Still very long etc. However within a month I decided I didn't like it. It wasn't me. I decided to bleach it back. Unfortunately for me I hadn't seen that product that gets dye out your hair without bleach (I wish it had been out then)! Also, stupid me.. instead of using the Wella once or twice (for some reason I thought it would be TOO strong & would damage my hair) - I instead used up to 4 or 5 boxes of different brands (l'oreal, clairol etc) of blonde hair dye. Sigh. I got my hair back to an orangey blonde but after a holiday in Spain & visiting a theme park damaging my hair in the chlorine on the wet rides (plus having it tied up all the time - which I NEVER used to do) most of my hair decided to snap off :'( - That was back in April. I resumed to do my roots with the Wella Hair Streaking Kit as I ALWAYS had done & up until the start of July, my hair (well, the orangey, damaged section) was still slowly snapping off. Right now it is up to 8/9 inches long on the sides & about 12 inches at the back - it is my old colour on top, so 4 inches of blonde before it fades into the orangey colour! I'm too scared to even THINK about lighting up the orangey part so I'm growing it out slowly - then eventually, one day, I'll be able to cut the orange out! So yeah, I have been through EVERY product. When my hair was blonde & in good nick, I used L'oreal Elvive (the pink one & the red one). To help my hair grow I use Lee Stafford's hair growth formula (from Boots) which is amazing. I also ordered some products from the U.S - Mane n Tail, originally made for horses - but good for helping it grow! Anyway onto the John Freida Full Repair... *** PRODUCT REVIEW - #1 ADVERTISING *** I always watch hair adverts & think 'yeah, yeah.. as if. It's all lighting & extensions'. This advert was no different really! I did get depressed when I saw the girl in the ad, because she did actually have the hair I used to have! When it heard that it helps with bleach & heat damage, my ears pricked up. I have used John Freida's blonde products in the past & they were VERY good, so I thought I'd give this range a go! I went & bought the Shampoo, Conditioner & a Heat Activated Styling Spray. *** PACKAGING *** I love the bottle. It's a lovely bright red & silver colour & is the same style bottle as ALL other John Freida Conditioner (& shampoo) bottles. The only downside is that you need to be careful when putting it in your trolley/car because it IS squidgy & the lid could pop open & you could end up with the product everywhere. The same goes for when the bottle is in your shower/bath. Make sure you re-seal the lid properly.. otherwise it could drip out! Also, another downside (nothing major) is that you cannot really tell the difference between the shampoo/conditioner bottles unless you read the actual word 'shampoo/conditioner'. This is a pain when you're rushing in the supermarket or are in the shower & like me without any contacts, squinting trying to see which is which! The front of the bottle reads: John Freida Full Repair. Revives overstyled hair. With Inca Inchi oil. Full Body Conditioner. Weightlessly Repairs. For damage from heat & colour. The back of the bottle reads: Bodifying formula, with Inca Inchi oil rich in Omega-3, repairs the look and feel of overstyled hair as it weightlessly restores bounce for full, flowing styles. Detangles strands, reducing the risk of breaking and snagging when combing or brushing. SAFE FOR COLOUR-TREATED HAIR. DIRECTIONS: Start with Full Repair Shampoo. Smooth conditioner through wet hair. Rinse well. Intense Repair: Leave on 2-5 minutes. *** PRICE *** For the quality of this Conditioner & how it has helped SAVE my hair, personally I would pay full price for this product, the full price being £5.89 for the 250ml bottle. However, shop around. It is ALWAYS on offer either in Tesco or Boots (3 for £10) so it's worth buying the shampoo & another product - I bought the heat activated styling spray. It is expensive but honestly, after what I've seen cheap products do to my hair. I will never, ever mis-treat it again! It deserves the best until it gets back to it's best & so it is definitely worth paying for that. *** THE CONDITIONER ITSELF *** My test for a good conditioner is how it rinses out your hair when you're in the shower. This one just feels amazing. When it rinses out, it comes out easily & leaves your hair very soft! It is a white colour, creamy texture & the smell.. is very hard to describe! It's in-between floral & fruity, but I love it. Probably the 2nd best smelling conditioner next to Aussie! My partner says it smells like 'the hairdressers', haha.. which is a good description too. It does smell like when you walk into the hairdressers! It goes in easily, I always leave it in for about 5 minutes & I really massage it into my roots, to help my hair grow! Then, like I said it rinses out easily & leaves your hair feeling very soft & tangle free! I have used some conditioners in the past that even while rinsing out your hair feels dry or sometimes even feels like the product is still IN your hair. This is far from that. This is just great! Beforehand I use the J.F Full Repair Shampoo (which I have also written a review almost identical to this one). Then when I get out the shower I use the Heat Activated Styling Spray (I'll also write a review for this). The styling spray unfortunately does have a slightly more 'chemically smell' than the shampoo & Conditioner. When brushing my (wet) hair, the first thing I noticed was, wow. No tangling. No snapping (which has happened a LOT recently). Also, no 'elasticcy' feeling. Bleach Blondes will know what I mean.. your hair when bleached does get a little elastic and this is what causes most of the snapping, sigh. However, I noticed straight away it wasn't as bad at all! As I was blow drying my hair I noticed it wasn't drying in the unruly way it always does. Being this awkward, annoying length, it tends to dry all frizzy looking & going outwards (like a mad professor hairstyle)! But using this product, it kept my hair flat (not TOO flat), the product also had NOT weighed my hair down at all! Brilliant. It had a bit more volume than usual & the blonde colour looked great, even the slightly orangey bits looked more blonde - but the main thing is that it looked healthy! After one wash too! After straightening my hair.. again, it looked brilliant. It did NOT dry out much at all. Usually after straightening my hair it dries out & loses the shape but with this it didn't! The softness too is just, amazing. I seriously sat there stroking my hair for five minutes, no joke! *** OVERALL REVIEW - AFTER GOING THROUGH THE BOTTLE *** So I'm still on bottle one really but bought my second bottle ready, I've had about 4 washes with it (I wash my hair every other day). It is lasting longer that what it actually looks like it will last (if you get me)? My hair has been just AMAZING! The ultimate PRO for me was the 'next day after bed' test. Usually if I've washed my hair one day, the next morning (even though I've just been sleeping) it has kinked up, lost the shape completely & feels horribly, horrrrribly dry at the ends. Using J.F Full Repair has shocked me. I woke up the next morning. My hair was perfect. I'm not exaggerating, honest. I woke up & could run my fingers through it. It was still soft & manageable. Just like I'd washed it! I haven't had this luxury in a LONG time! I am going to keep using these products for a long time, until my hair grows back. Even then I might keep using it because it is just so great! I urge every one of you reading this to AT LEAST give it a try. You will NOT be disappointed! Don't bother reading my shampoo review, it will more or less be the same as this. In one word the shampoo is amazing. Go buy them & repair your hair back to it's old self :) *** PROS *** 1. Usually on offer, so can be good value for money! 2. It actually WORKS, leaves your hair better than EVER. 3. Smells gorgeous. 4. You will get more washes than you think out of the bottle. 5. Combine it with the Shampoo & you will never want to use other products again! *** CONS *** 1. If you don't like paying a lot for conditioner, it can be pricey (but it is worth it, honest)! 2. Bottle design could be better (if you're fussy about it, I'm not). Just be careful you don't confuse it with the Shampoo! *** INGREDIENTS *** Aqua, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Behenamdopropyl Dimethylamine, Trisiloxane, Cetyl Esters, Stearyl Alcohol, Lactic Acid, Parfum, Propylene, Glycol, Quaternium-91, Diazolidinyl Urea, Cetrimonium Methosulfate, Glycine, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Malic Acid, Stearoxypropyl Dimethylamine, C14-28 Isoalkyl Acid, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, C14-28 Alkyl Acid, Tocopherol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene. Please go & buy this conditioner! You will not be disappointed! It will repair your hair back to it's original self!
I have recently used the John Frieda Full Repair Conditioner alongside the matching shampoo, which I have already reviewed. Like the shampoo, I decided to try this because my hair was looking extremely damaged. I colour it and straighten it several times a week and it was looking dry and ratty and even breaking off at the ends. I believe the Full Repair range - which currently consists of a shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner and spray mist - is new to John Frieda and it seems to be getting a lot of positive press at the moment. Like the shampoo, the conditioner comes in a red tube. I do like the packaging, the only downside is that the shampoo and conditioner both look very similar so can get confused when in the shower. My hair is long and thick so needs a good conditioner to detangle it. The first time I used this I was slightly worried by the consistency of this conditioner as I tend to need quite a thick conditioner to tame my hair. This in contrast is actually fairly thin, however this does have the advantage that it is easy to run through the lengths of the hair. The conditioner has a very similar fragrance to the matching shampoo, although perhaps not quite so intense. It's a floral fragrance although I find it difficult to be any more specific than that, as I can't put my finger on exactly what flower it is. After applying this to the lengths of my hair, I tend to leave it on a minute or two before rinsing. It rinses out easily and I can immediately feel that my hair is softer and detangled. Since beginning to use this, I have been impressed with the change in my hair. It feels softer and smoother and also more hydrated without being greasy. To say it 'repairs' the hair is maybe going a bit far, don't be duped into thinking this will repair split ends or anything like that, however it will moisturise the ends of the hair, which in turn makes it look better. It also seems to control frizz and just generally make my hair look healthier. I have also noticed it doesn't seem to be breaking as much. A 250ml tube of this costs £5.89 from Boots. It is also available in Superdrug and ASDA and I find the John Frieda range is often on special offer. Boots are currently running a 3 for £10 offer. On the whole I am really pleased with this conditioner and will be buying it again. Along with the shampoo it has made my hair feel more 'normal' again and certainly improved its appearance. If your hair is dried out or suffering from overuse of colour/heated appliances then I would recommend giving this a go.
