Review: John Frieda Full Repair Range

You may remember me telling you recently about the new Full Repair range released by John Frieda. If not you can have a catch up read here. The Full Repair range itself is comprised of seven products, with products to help from the moment you wash, to the finishing touches on the styling. It promises to revive and repair over-styled hair
The Full Repair Shampoo & Conditioner (£5.59) gave my hair some body and left my hair feeling soft. I found only using a small amount of conditioner was needed, as too much and my hair became greasy after one day. The fragrance isn't overpowering and overall it left my hair feeling clean and manageable. I did notice however that my hair dulled slightly not looking at shiny as I'm used to. This was when I used nothing else on my hair apart from the shampoo and conditioner.

Full Repair Styling Spray (£5.99) gives hold to your style, leaving it with natural movement so it's perfect for curls and waves. You apply to mid lengths and ends before using heat styling tools. It smells lovely, and a little goes a long way so it's great value for a shiny finish on your curls.

The Full Repair Deep Infusion (£6.99) has been specially formulated for medium to thick hair, so fine hair girls avoid. I found it comparable to an Argan oil or serum, again concentrating more on the ends of the hair it helps protect against further damage whilst leaving hair smooth and healthy-looking. I loved this product, it's lightweight enough to avoid product overload but still helps give hair a boost. 

The Root Lift Foam (£5.99) was probably my least favourite of the range, which is a shame as I love a root boosting product. I just couldn't get the hang of it and found it left my hair feeling lank and didn't give any root lift. I understand the idea behind the product but found it didn't deliver. I also found that it wasn't so much a foam but more liquid which I do find harder to use.

The Deep Conditioner (£5.99) is a luxurious intensive treatment which promises to revive over-styled hair. I found this conditioner gorgeous, it left my hair feeling soft and it didn't leave hair feeling too flat or over-conditioned. It is a little runnier in comparasion to some treatments but I didn't feel that affected the end result. I concentrated on the mid-lengths and ends and left it on for around 10 minutes to make sure the Inca Inchi Oil penetrated and helped repair my bleached ends.
The secret behind the range is a formulation of Inca Inchi Oil (an Amazonian lightweight micro-oil rich in Omega 3) It targets damaged hair and helps repair whilst styling. I would repurchase some of the Full Repair range, however some items I would give a miss. It's fantastic to know you are reviving hair whilst giving it protection from further heat styling. The value for money is purse friendly, and I would definitely pay the RRP.
