John Frieda Frizz Ease SerumHair Type: Straight, Wavy or Curly Virgin Hair Weaves

Everyone I know who wears weaves has mentioned this serum at one point in      time. It took me a long time to jump on the bandwagon because I’m the sort of person who only wants to spend £1/$1 on every haircare item I own, due to the fact I get through them so quickly. Its marketed to Caucasian hair types so it follows that it should be good for virgin weaves right? Well, as I found, not really.


It smells nice. It works better on straight hair, as it gives you this sleek glossy look that I quite like. On my wavy it helped slightly with curl definition, but not enough to warrant everyday use.


It is far too heavy, gloopy and gooey for hair. I felt like it coated my weave rather than sinking in. I know this because I have used other serums that were lightweight and lovely. It also poured in my leather handbag due to the cheap packaging which I wasn’t too pleased about. The pump on the mini handbag version is a nightmare, you end up looking for ways to get the precious stuff out of the tube and then flinging it across the room in frustration.

It is quite expensive for the amount you get in a tube, in the UK it costs around £6.26, but it is almost always on offer in your local Pharmacy or Supermarket.

All in all, this serum is okay for a quick fix when your straight weave looks a little frizzy. It’s not good for long term use at it weighs the hair down and gives it a greasy shine.

$8.99 or 6.26₤ available at your local drugstore or beauty supply store.
