John Frieda Sheer Blonde: Instant Silkener 125ml - £5.29

If I am 100% honest with you, I'm not quite sure what made me buy this product originally because there is nothing about it which immediately attracts me. And I an advertisers dream... I always pick up (and end up buying) products that I like the packaging off - which probably isn't the best approach. 

Anyway, for whatever reason I brought this I am glad that I did. It is amazing for the ends of my hair. As the colder weather is drawing in, my hair likes to explode as if I have put my fingers in a plug socket. This looks and feels amazing through straight or naturally styled hair and it really softens the ends. When I curl my hair and pop this on the ends it I find that it weighs down my hair and pulls the curls out. Which is weird because when my hair is straightened it feels like silk (excuse the cliche) and is really light weight. 

It smells quite nice, it has that "John Frieda" smell which is softly perfumed and isn't too overpowering. It is a thick and creamy consistency and I like the fact that it is in a squeezy tube which means it is easier to get out unlike some similar products which I have used. A pea size is ample amount of product for application to the ends of the hair and then you have to work it in. I only use it occasionally, as I am too lazy to have my hair straight, so I am unaware of any prolonged effects of this. 

Overall, I think this product is great value for money and despite not knowing if the product is doing any good to my hair it does make it feel, look and smell great. Plus it is no hassle which is a bigger bonus for me.
