John Freida | Full Repair Range

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your weekend so far! I feels like the weather has changed so dramatically over night, it is so extremely cold and i had to whip out my UGGs this morning. If you know me then you know how much i love my UGG boots and i would pretty much live in them the whole year round but i tried to hold off as long as possible as i did not want to say goodbye to Summer just yet haha. Today i have a haircare review for you all featuring a few John Freida products i have been enjoying lately. I was thinking about posting about my haircare routine as i have never done it before so please let me know if that is something you would like to see. 

I must have tried and tested out near enough every shampoo and conditioner you could possibly think of as i am constantly on the hunt for a Shampoo and Conditioner duo that work with my some what unruly hair. I have quite long hair which has a natural curl / wave and even though their is a lot of hair my hair is actually quite fine which is quite unusual haha. I used to colour my hair a lot which i regret now as i do absolutely love my natural hair colour - it took me a while but my hair is all natural now and completely colour free, i used to have blonde tips for ages but it went well with the whole ombre trend whilst the colour was still growing out. Even though that is the case it is still nice to use a repair product because you know you are going to get that extra bit of TLC your hair might need. 

Using a combination of both products for a few weeks now and i can honestly say i have seen a different in my hair. I tend to wash my hair every other day and using this duo i have found my hair is a lot shinier, has a lovely scent after wash and the conditioner does not make my hair greasy. Even though the formula states that it adds volume to hair i can't see it drastically on my hair but that is personally me, i have a lot of heavy hair and getting volume is quite difficult for me *cries* - it could work different on everyone. The John Freida Full Repair and Full Body Shampoo has a combination of Inca Inchi oil combined in the formulation which is a lightweight micro-oil rich in omega-3 which repairs the overall look and feel of overworked hair, adds beautiful body and aids with detangling to reduce risk of breaking and snagging when combing out your hair. This is perfect for me as i find after combing my conditioner out it can be quite a timely task depending on how much product / backcombing i used since the last wash, slap on the wrist i know but i love big volumous hair. Since using the Full Repiar Conditioner i found that i am having less breakage from combing out the conditioner which is amazing and it has really got me wanting to try the Deep Repair Mask within the same range. 

The packaging is really sleek and chic, i love the red shade and it definitely makes a statement in my shower haha. Even thought i haven't finished them yet i feel it would be easy to scrape every last drop out as it is a squeezable packaging or you could even cut the top off. I don't do this all the time but if it is a product i loveee then i will make it my mission to scrape every last drop out and lets face it we all want to get our moneys worth. 

John Freida Repairing Oil Elixir is essentially another deep conditioning hair oil much like Moroccan Oil but one with a slight twist. For one it is jam packed with hair conditiong ingredients that reduces breakage and creates visibly repaired, smooth and more manageable hair without weighing it down. The oil contains Inca Inchi Oil like the other products within the range which is one of the highest sources of omega fatty acids in the world and contains 47x more Omega-3 than Aragon oil - pretty interesting fact!

Hair oils are something that have occasionally scared me in the past because they can be 'over used' and cause more damage than good. We have all been there when we have added a little too much product...i am guilty myself haha - that is why i do love the fact that the bottle has a handy pump to hand which makes usage a lot easier and mess free. I have used this Oil Elixier both in my wet hair before drying and on my dried hair focusing on my ends to add smoothness and a glamorous 'non-greasy' shine. I have really liking this oil and i have been using it in conjunction with my haircare routine - it is a great versatile products as it also acts as a heat protectant for when i am drying or styling my hair. Ever since using it i have noticed a slight reverse effect on my hair, it is looking more healthy and shiny which is exactly what i want. If you are not a huge fan of hair oils that are used in this way then of course you can use this as a pre-shampooing treatments so you have all of the benefits of the conditioning oil without the worry about over applying like i stated earlier haha. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for something to pamper your hair on those days when it needs a little more TLC. 

If you would like to give these products a try you can purchase them from most leasing supermarkets or even online at Boots or Superdrug. I have found the prices do vary depending on where you purchase them. I hope you all enjoyed this haircare review, i would love to know what haircare products you are swearing by right now especially during the weather change. If you would like to see a haircare routine please let me know. Like always lovelies, if you have an questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day! 

Lots of Love


  1. Such a great review! I had already read good things about the products and since I'm on the hair care wagon at the moment I'll get them all once I've finished off a few more shampoos :o). Xx

  2. Great review! I've always wanted to dabble more in John Freida because I think I've only maybe tried one of their heat protectors. Love the sound of these :)

  3. Oh these sound great! Must pic them up when I'm next in town.

  5. Do like the sound of the hair hair is coloured so from time to time gets really dry, so a little extra TLC really comes in handy.
