Review: John Frieda Three Day Straight

I'd heard some really good things about this product so I was so happy when I saw it for a good price, and was curious to see if it actually worked as well as it claimed to:

"John Frieda Frizz Ease Spray transforms curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts up to 3 days.
Designed to work with your hair straighteners, this weightless spray with heat protection blocks out frizz as you straighten. A revolutionary blend of polymers with keratin protein wraps each strand, sealing in straight style for up to 3 days.
Keeps hair glossy, smooth and swinging with body
Safe for colour-treated and chemically-treated hair
Or until your next shampoo if less than 3 days."

Day One
Day Two
Day Three
I was happy with the results, because my natural hair is like a crazy mane! This was a big change, and it felt soft and silky and styled all three days. However, as you can see in Day Three, some of my natural waves started fighting back, but did remain calm and silky.

The product itself was easy to use, I used it after my Mega Shampoo and Conditioner from Aussie, with John Freida Hair Serum on my hair when wet, and then generously sprayed the product from root to tip and combed through.

One big negative for me is how sticky the formula is, while it works wonders and I am really happy with the outcome, at this point my hair feels like I've sprayed it with golden syrup. This CANNOT be good for your hair, and if I had even slightly oily or grease prone hair I would worry how it would effect it.

However, when you apply heat, this texture disappears from your hair leaving it silky smooth. I roughly blow dried it and used my ever faithful GHDs from about 5 years ago!

I would even say it works to combat frizz; even if your curls do return (if you're out in drizzley rain or in very humid atmosphere) it does remain a lot calmer and easier to control. I have very knot prone hair and this product made my hair very manageable between the washes - no knots at all!

Overall I'm really happy with the results, it's a great product and it made a massive difference to my hair! I would say I would repurchase this but it seems to be lasting really well so I won't need to for quite a long while
