Review: John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo, Conditioner and Blow Dry Lotion

I am a big advocate of John Frieda. The Frizz Ease range is basically my life. There was a time when I owned every product in the curly range. Yep. So when I was contacted to review the latest John Frieda Luxurious Volume range, I was pretty excited.

I'm sure you've all seen the adverts announcing that you can finally love your fine hair, complete with gorgeous Scarlett Johansson-style curly bob. The products promise "touchably full" hair, which sounds pretty good to me. I was once told by a hairdresser that I have a lot of fine hair. The hairs fly away, which gives my hair its signature frizzy bulk. Not exactly the look I go for. Cue photo of fluffy hair:

The shampoo immediately gave me a surprise because it was transparent. I'm not sure why this pleased me so much but it did. I'm such a child! It has a lovely fruity scent- A mix of apple and watermelon. As I applied it, I was struck by how well it lathers. A little really does go a long way with this shampoo. It rinsed out really well, and left my hair feeling particularly clean.

I followed up with the conditioner, which has a rich, creamy consistency. It feels especially smooth and moisturising as I applied it. When rinsing out, I was aware of how soft and smooth my hair felt. 

I was also sent a sample of the Blow Dry Lotion. I have to admit, I don't actually own a hairdryer, since I've found they tend to exacerbate frizz, but I sprayed a little just to give you an indication of the initial application. It has a pretty strong chemical smell, but it has a fine spray and applies evenly across the hair. 

As my hair was drying, I noticed that it was a lot less frizzy than usual. Always a good start! As you can see from the before photo below, the frizzy bulk has disappeared and has been replaced with bouncy curls. I'm pretty impressed! 


  1. These products sound great! I have the Frizz Ease shampoo at the moment and I really like it. :)

  2. You always remind me of a porcelain doll, I think it's the fair skin and red lips.(this is a complement by the way!)
    I might have to give this range a go, I've thick hair but it's just frizz mania at the minute, and I can't find anything to tame it!

    1. Aaw thank you so much! I love having pale skin!

  3. You look so glamorous - well, more so than usual :)
