John Frieda Hydrating Products & Root Booster Review

 Hydrating Shampoo 
Volume Blow-dry Root Booster

I've always been a big fan of hair products. My hair is thick, weighty and prone to frizz so the last thing I want is something resembling a crazy lion mane. There for I’ll try anything that claims to tame frizz, add shine and quench my hair’s thirst, providing it is reasonably priced of course.
I like to switch my hair care routine up so my hair doesn't get use to the product and so I tend to rotate between 2 shampoos and 2 conditioners depending on what my hair is in need of. Although I will admit that I very rarely switch my washing routine as I've always thought that to tame your tresses its all about ‘leave in’ products. Oops!
That was until I was asked by John Frieda to try out these little tubes of gold in disguise along with a little treat to boost my roots. I’m not going to lie that my hair was in desperate need of repair from previous ombre-ing and over straightening and so I was super excited to see if changing my regular shampoo and conditioner would work.
Immediately after rinsing out the John Frieda conditioner my hair felt silkier and smoother than when If I was to use my general products. Once towelled my hair usually feels as though it’s screaming out for moisture and  I routinely pour on at least two 50p coins size amounts of hair oil (way more than recommended).
But I decided to skip my usual oil on the ends drenching routine and tested out the much needed root booster to uplift my typically weighted hair. I sprayed it onto my roots, massaged it in and flipped my head upside down to wiz over with the hair dryer. I’ve never been one to spend time blow drying my hair layer by layer and drying it upside down means you can get a little extra lift from the roots.
Phoar, the finish with this John Frieda root booster is amazing. It didn’t crisp up at the roots and gave a natural lift without looking like I’d been dragged through a hedge. Most products tend to go limp after a couple hours and I’m usually found guilty for teasing the roots back up again. But this product seemed to last. I’d even go as far to say it’s the best root lifting product I’ve tried and I’d highly recommend it if your looking for an inexpensive root volume spray. I’m pretty darn happy to introduce these babies into my hair care routine for when my hair needs added shine, a heap of help with  repair and promising volume at the roots.
