John Frieda – Full Repair – Deep Conditioner

I still have a few products from this range to review for you guys and this is up next next since I’m planning a ‘what’s in my bathroom’ post for tomorrow and this will feature! I’m a big fan of hair masks, anything that makes my colour treated hair look smooth and silky is a big plus in my book. I’ll mix them together, add oils, wrap my head in cling film and lie on a hot water bottle.. you name it, I’ve tried it! That being said very few have ever really wowed me and I’m always on the look out for the miracle product that will restore it to it’s original glory. I’ve tested high end treatments and been totally underwhelmed and found drugstore masks that make my hair so amazing I can’t stop touching it.. when it comes to hair care you just cannot predict how something will work for you until you whack in on and give it a go. I was excited to try the full repair range given that it’s specifically designed to restore colour treated and heat damaged hair but this deep conditioner was a bit of a miss for me I’m afraid. Because it’s in a pot I think I expected too much, I thought I was getting a really nourishing treatment when in fact it’s really just a conditioner.. I don’t think it’s even all that deep. It’s very thin.. more like a shampoo in consistency and it doesn’t feel particularly moisturising so it was a bit of a let down really. It does something in the way of smoothing my hair and I often think that when something doesn’t appear to be working it could well be doing the world of good from the inside so with that in mind I will use it up but it’s not something I’d choose to repurchase when there are so many others I’ve loved so much more. I actually used my Aussie Miracle Moist S&C last night for the first time in maybe 6 months and I’d forgotten how great it it. When you’re talking the same price point I’d recommend the Aussie over the full repair any day but it’s quite possible that this may really be strengthening my hair where as the Aussie is just making it appear to be in better condition.

Available here for £6.29

Have you used this? What do you think??

    I like this! It makes my hair really soft & frizz free and smells fantastic. Like you said, i’m not sure it’s repairing anything though. I do feel the Pantene protect & repair (gold range) does work when i use it regularly and my hair’s actually grown this year rather than suffer from breakage. I will try the 3 minute miracle Aussie one again if it’s on offer when i’m next in the UK. Maybe i’m missing something because it didn’t blow me away and i’m too old to enjoy smelling of bubblegum 🙂 Maybe i expected too much because of so many positive reviews?

      I found the miracle moist range to work really well for me but I don’t think the 3 minute miracle is any better than the regular conditioner!
