[075] John Frieda 3 Day Straight

Hello lovelies.. It has been a while that I haven't blog believe me life has been non stop. I have so many posts that I am trying to get up but I am really finding it hard balancing everything out at the moment. Some of you will know that about 3/4 weeks ago I changed my hair and had a full fringe cut in. I love it and it has really grown on me however it is so time consuming and such high maintenance. I also feel that now I have this new look my hair is better suited straight. I think since the cut I've only had it wavy once but I am now using heat on it a lot more which isn't good. So what better time to trial John Frieda's new '3 Day straight' - If it makes my life easier than why not !?

I have been using John Frieda's 3 day straight for a few weeks now and I have to say I do like the product BUT! I don't feel as if it keeps my hair straight for 3 days. It might just be me as I am so used to washing my hair every other day. 

The product is a spray which you are meant to spritz into wet/damp hair approximately 7-15 times before you proceed to straighten your hair. I really like how light this spray feels in the hair it doesn't weigh it down like some styling products do and doesn't have that sticky finish to it. I have naturally wavy/curly thick hair and I found this product really helped to tame the frizz and made straightening a lot easier. I also found once my hair was blow-dried (before using straighteners) it was noticeably straighter. Once I then used the straighteners over I found my hair looked shiny, glossy and definitely straight! 

When it got to day two I found that my hair was still straight when I woke up. In the mornings  usually go over my hair with the straighteners but  I didn't feel I needed to put as much time or effort in to doing so. This product claims that you can even go to the gym and your hair remains straight. I really am funny about my hair and feel as if I NEED to wash it every other day and especially after  a workout at the gym. For that reason it didn't live up to the 3 days it suggests on the packet. Partly because I am too used to routine and felt my hair had to be washed. 

3 Day straight is a product I would definitely recommend giving a go. I saw a real difference from using it and styling my hair, the straightness held up until I washed it and it remained glossy and shiny. I think if you have frizzy, wavy, curly hair you will notice a huge difference once using this product. For those of you with straighter hair the results will probably be less evident.

For £7 this product makes that Brazilian blow-dry a home made easy, temporary alternative which is definitely worth a try! 

I love John Frieda's products, Frizz Ease has been my number one serum since I  was like 14! Do you like John Frieda's haircare? Would you try this product? How are you currently wearing your hair? 

Thank God it's Friday! I need this weekend.. 
lots of love

  3. I don't really trust any products that promise to keep your hair straight for a few days. I feel like you need to get it permanently done, which is super damaging but I've had it and I loved it!Love John Frieda's products though. Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner is one of my favs!
