Combatting The Frizz With John Frieda Frizz-Ease

 John Frieda Frizz Ease

The colder autumnal weather means a few things for my hair; harsh temperatures from blow drying and central heating, being stuffed into a bun to tame it in the wind, and the inevitable static from pulling cosy knits over my head. As someone with dry and fine hair, the outcome is always the same: frizzy, tangled and wild. So what's a girl to do?

Thankfully the John Frieda's Frizz-Ease* haircare range exists, and it's designed for exactly this purpose. It's not only thick curly hair that needs taming, and John Frieda have everyone covered. In an attempt to lessen the damage on my hair and to keep it nice and sleek I've been trying a few products from the range. This is a full regime in order to keep things smooth and sleek from the get go, so first up is the John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Shampoo* and Conditioner*. When used together, both products are formulated to give you luxuriously smooth and frizz free hair from the first use and to keep it that way.

The John Frieda Frieda Frizz-Ease Forever Smooth Shampoo* is infused with a 'Frizz Immunity Complex' which sounds rather fancy, and aims to keep your hair smooth if used regularly, as well as coconut oil to smooth the hair and leave it silky soft. I found that it very much did smooth my hair and keep it beautifully soft and detangled, but it also left my hair feeling quite coated at the root, even after playing around with applying different amounts. My hair is super fine and quite soft naturally, so it can be a bit of a nightmare with deeply conditioning products, although the lengths crave moisture. So sadly the shampoo wasn't for me, but if you have thicker, coarser and even curly hair this is for you

The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Forever Smooth Conditioner* however, is where it's at for me. Best worked into the lengths and combed through, after rinsing off the conditioner my hair is the most smoothest I think I've ever seen it without using straightening irons. Not a tangle or any frizz in sight! The conditioner also helps keep your hair smooth and free of tangles and frizz for 72 hours, which it most definitely does. I tend to get quite warm in the night which can often lead to my hair looking rather disheveled and frizzy in the morning but not since I started using this, which means I save both time in the morning and limit any extra heat damage to fix it.

I couldn't not mention the product that started it all - John Frieda Frizz-Ease Extra Strength 6 Effects+ Serum*. It's the product we all know, right? I've used this off and on for too many years to mention. John Frieda kindly sent me the extra strength version, and it doesn't muck about. I love serums and hair oils anyway so this has slotted nicely into my routine. Even though it's a more heavy duty formula it's perfect for my fine tresses. It's only used on the lengths and ends anyway so doesn't weigh down my hair or make it greasy. 

The John Fried Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Serum is a bit of a multi-tasker, aiming to eradicate frizz and leave your hair smooth and silky, while also protecting it from heat and humidity. If you tend to use quite a few different products on your hair then this could easily replace several of them in one go. I add a pump to drenched hair and work it all through the lengths before drying and the difference it makes is quite noticeable, especially the shine that my hair now has. Colour-junkies will adore this serum I'm sure!

Have you tried anything from John Frieda before?

An Autumn Transitional Wishlist

autumn transitional clothes wishlist

Sweater weather is finally here, which means one thing: autumn transitional clothes shopping! I've been waiting for this moment for what feels like an eternity, but its finally here and I may have made a couple of cheeky purchases already. I've been scouring the internet over the past couple of week's so here's a few finds that are saved in my basket already.

This Topshop mustard button detail jumper is annoyingly sold out online but there's still stock in store, it just needs to be hunted down! I picked this jumper up in burgundy in the meantime and I absolutely adore it. The button detail is so cute and when sized up (I went for a 14), it looks very Acne Studios-esque and both totally cosy and chic at the same time. I'm on a mission to hunt the mustard version down now! If I don't succeed though, this chunky roll neck Marks & Spencers number will make a good backup plan. It's ultra snuggly and quite long; perfect for keeping your butt toasty on an autumn day. Mustard is going to be huge this season so I'm sure they'll be plenty more jumpers out there to swoon on too!

Autumn is the time of year that I opt for light sweaters to layer with tees and blazers so I tend to pick up a few to freshen up my wardrobe. This ribbed grey Topshop sweater is the perfect staple for my wardrobe as the weather starts to turn and it will look great accessorised with my Missoma x Lucy Williams Horn and Mini Fang necklaces teamed up over the top.

I live in boots most of the year as it is but I'm especially drawn to these black pointed boots from Topshop. Sock boots have been around for a few seasons now, and they're set to be big for a while longer. Having big feet and skinny legs means I have to miss out on this trend, or any boots that fit snuggly around the leg! These ones aren't very high around the ankle though so I think they'll be more flattering on me. The heels are pretty high so I'm not too sure how comfy they'll be, but they're perfect for balancing out a chunky knit with black skinny jeans.

I'm trying to inject some soft colours into my wardrobe, but still keep it quite toned down, especially my day to day workwear. Most of my outfits centre around black jeans and tailored trousers with a bit of a minimalist twist so I tend to look for nicely detailed sleeves and necklines to jazz my outfits up a little. & Other Stories is always good for nice tailoring and detailing, so I'm eyeing up this blush pink v-necked silk blouse, white puff detail shirt and I absolutely adore this trumpet sleeved light blue top. All three of these tops would create the most perfect capsule wardrobe as they'll go with everything.

As much as I love my ASOS cloud pyjamas as they're so cosy, I've been on the hunt for more grown up slinky pjs for a while. The Olivia von Halle ones are insanely expensive, but Marks & Spencer have nailed it with these Rosie for Autograph black satin pyjamas. The buttons are covered in material too and the white piping looks ultra chic. I'm already looking forward to chilly cosy evenings!

It can't be autumn wishlist without jeans, right? I'm obsessed with these black faded Zara mom jeans so I will be picking a pair up for sure. Maybe I need them in a mid-wash too? Although they're highwaisted they look like they're cut quite close on the hips and fit well around the thighs, stopping them from being frumpy like a lot of mom jeans tend to be.

What's on your autumn wishlist?

A Glossier Duo For Plump Skin

A Glossier Duo For Plump Skin

With only a month to go until Glossier ships to the UK, its only fair that I share some of my fave finds to help you build up your wishlist. I'm smitten beyond belief with the brand (am sat here now in my cosy Glossier sweater - 10 fangirl points for me!), and now having tried most of the range I think I've nailed my skincare routine at long last. I very recently picked up a couple more Glossier products to amp up my routine so it's ready for autumn, and when paired together they make quite a formidable duo.
