It would be fair to say that I am fraught with frizz! After I have blow-dried my hair I always need something to slick down those mischievous flyaway hairs and add a glossy sheen to my hair. I therefore thought I would share with you two of my current hair heroes; reached for many a time when there is frizz to be fought and a mane to be tamed!
First up is John Frieda’s 100% Shine Glossing Mist (aka Serum Finishing Spray) – £5.59 from Boots.
This is a product I have repurchased umpteen times and will inevitably continue to, until something better comes along. It is a glossing spray, to be used on dry hair, that lightly coats, and leaves a lovely glisten and shine to your hair. As well as using this product sprayed directly onto your hair, I like to spritz some into my palms and then work it through key areas such as my fringe, the ends of my hair and those fine ‘baby hairs’ around my hairline. I love this product as it is so affordable yet offers such a desirable shine and finish to my hair.
Secondly is Aveda’s Light Elements Smoothing Fluid – £20.50 from Aveda.
This is the most recent addition to my haircare armoury. It is towards the slightly pricier end of the spectrum, but boy is it good! This product, unlike the John Frieda glossing mist, doesn’t add visible shine as such to my hair, but does completely smooth my frizz and flyaways and leaves my hair feeling so soft and supple. It smells amazing, boasting a formulation of plant-based ingredients such as Jojoba and lavender, and with its serum-like consistency, it can be used on damp or dry hair. I personally like to use it on damp hair, concentrating its application near my parting and through the ends of my hair. It is extremely lightweight and after I have blown-dried my hair, I find it is noticeably less frizzy and feels more settled, and a lot easier to straighten. A luxury product but one that is a real treat for your tresses!
And here is my freshly-styled hair after using my hair hero products of the moment!
Do you use either of these products?
I’d love to hear what you reach for to fight the frizz!
