1960's Beehive Hair Style Ft. John Frieda Full Repair Products

Hello you lovely lot!

If you saw this post last week with a couple of videos I shared with you about the John Frieda Full Repair Hair Care Range. You'll have noticed that I took quite a liking to the 1960's Inspired Beehive Styling Video. I was later sent some of the products from the range to try out & I must say I loved them as soon as I used them. So I tried them out and had a go at following the tutorial on my own :)


Unfortunately my hair is not as silky, sleek, long or as well looked after as the models hair in the video. Of course without fail, I have got my hair extensions in to give that extra bit of length and effect (I hate how short my natural hair is!) Overall I don't think it turned out too badly? 

If you'd like to give this hairstyle a go yourself, check out this video below:

I must say using the John Frieda Full Repair products before giving this a go made my hair much more manageable...

John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo & Conditioner
Both products contain Inca Ichi Oil which is rich in Omega 3 and penetrates the hair deeply to restore and repair the look and feel of overstyled hair. It also detangles hair strands to prevent future hair snagging and breakage. They are safe to use on coloured and chemically treated hair, and they also protect against heat damage!
The shampoo has a light formula, however I feel its probably better suited to thicker hair types like my own, if you have very fine hair then this may weigh it down. My hair is quite thick, but very damaged, this shampoo is great for moisturising and reparing while also adding shine to the hair. I loved how easily this shampoo lathered up and it really deep cleaned my hair and scalp, leaving my hair fresh, light and ready to condition.
RRP - £5.59 For 250ml

The conditioner is also quite lightweight and easy to distribute evenly throughout the hair, however once again I'd recommend for thicker hair types as it might be a little too thick for finer hair. It may cause finer hair to become limp and greasy quickly. I like this conditioner, but unfortunately because my hair is SO damaged at the moment this really doesn't much for me and I prefer the Deep Conditioner Masque.
RRP - £5.59 For 250ml

John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioner Masque 
Once again this product contains Inca Ichi Oil which is rich in Omega 3 and penetrates the hair deeply to restore and repair the look and feel of overstyled hair. It also reduces chances of future hair breakage, and leaves hair feeling silky and full. It's safe to use on coloured and chemically treated hair.
I think this has to be my favourite product out of the four that I was sent, as I feel this is what makes the most difference on the condition of my hair. The conditioner itself is quite thin and runny in formula so you literally only need a very small amount and it will go far! It is recommended to leave the product on for between 2-5 minutes before rinsing out, however I left mine on for a good 15 mins or so. I noticed a difference in my hair texture and appearance instantly from using this, It feels smooth and silky and looks more shiny, not to mention the ends looking significantly less damaged! 
RRP - £5.99 For 150ml

John Frieda Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Fusion
Enriched with Inca Inchi Oil with Omega 3, this serum claims to instantly absorb into torn hair strands and weightlessly repairs the look and feel of damage to the length and hair ends. To leave the hair smooth, shiny and full of body. This also protects against heat damage.
This is also a fantastic product for me, I have been using the John Frieda "Frizz Ease" Hair serum for as long as I can remember, and I love it, so I was really intrigued by the Full Repair Serum. It is applied to semi-wet hair just before blow drying. However if my hair is looking a little static or frizzy I have tried this out and it really smooths it down! This is to be used on the ends and lengths of the hair only, not applied by the roots. Go with the less is more approach again on this product. The liquid is very thin and runny and can cause the hair to look greasy if too much is applied. I can tell I'll definitely be repurchasing this product. 
RRP - £6.99 For 50ml

The whole John Frieda Full Repair Range is currently on offer at 2 for £7.49 at Superdrug! - Link
Absolute bargain if you look at the individual RRP prices.

Overall I am very impressed with the products I've recieved and would really love to try out the other two in the range, the Full Repair Heat Activated Styler, and the Full Repair Root Lift Foam. But may have to wait a while for these as I can't really afford them at the moment haha.

Have you tried any John Frieda products? Which is your favourite?
