John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

Saturday, 29 September 2012

You might know that John Frieda is one of my favourite haircare brands, so I was very excited when I recently received a lovely email asking if I’d like to test and review some of their products.

Well, that’s an offer you can’t refuse so I asked to try the newest range  Full Repair  and was sent the Full Body Shampoo* and Full Body Conditioner*.

“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.”

John Frieda Full Repair

The Shampoo

I love the texture of this and the way it makes my hair feel; it’s so silky and yet it doesn’t weigh down it down or make my roots greasy at all.

In fact, I’ve noticed that I can leave longer between washes when I use the shampoo, which is always welcome, and it hasn’t stripped my colour.

It takes a while to lather up but I don’t mind this when the results are so good.

The Conditioner

Possibly the lightest conditioner I’ve ever tried, and yet it still nourishes hair.

I’m not sure how people with thicker hair would find it but for me and my rather thin strands it works well.

The ends of my hair in particular look a lot healthier, and they feel much softer too.


I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my hair since using these products (they smell lovely by the way). I usually end up pulling out so much hair when I comb it through but this is noticeably less now I’m using Full Repair.

I’m often sceptical when products claim to boost volume, but I can see that my hair has a lot more body after I’ve used the shampoo and conditioner, not really at the roots but along the lengths.

It’s also much shinier now, something that people have been commenting on. When John Frieda say that Full Repair revives over-styled hair they are not lying.

The John Frieda Full Repair range is available at Boots, Superdrug and most larger supermarkets.

My First Giveaway Win!

Friday, 7 September 2012

A few weeks ago I was browsing through new blog posts when I came across Sandra's blog, The Puzzle of Sandra's Life, where she was announcing the winner of her giveaway. Like many bloggers, I often enter giveaways but never get my hopes up too high. However, this time I was delighted to find that the winner was me! I returned from my holiday last week to find my parcel had been posted  everything had arrived safely and I even received a lovely note from Sandra herself.

Included in the prize:

One of my favourite shades of blue, and it matches my new H&M sweater.

Magnetic bookmark: I always lose my page so this will come in handy and I love the cute heart print.

Olive soap: This smells lovely; I can't wait to use it.

Nail polish: A lovely fresh green colour that reminds me of spring, although I'm sure I'll be using it to brighten things up during winter!

I'd like to say thank you to Sandra for sending me such a lovely prize :) If you haven't already, you can check out her blog by clicking here.
