I always do my best to look after my long hair, getting it trimmed regularly, and trying hard to remember giving it a frequent treatment. But even so, I still struggle with frizz, which is only made worse by the very hot and humid weather we’ve had here in Melbourne recently. So I happily accepted when I was asked to trial the *John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Thermal Protection Formula Serum, here are my thoughts;



What They Say:

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula protects against damage and colour fading caused by heat-styling and UV exposure. Suitable for all types of hair and inspired by John Frieda salon experts, this exceptional hair serum instantly shields all hair types against the damaging effects of heat styling and UV exposure that lead to frizz. Daily use smoothes, shines and prolongs colour. Use on towel-dried hair, can also be used on dry hair.

RRP: $16.99 (50ml) – Available from Priceline, supermarkets, and selected pharmacies

What I Say:
The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Thermal Protection Formula Serum not only helps to reduce frizz and leave your hair shiny and silky, it is also designed to protects your hair from heat damage during heat styling as well as minimise colour fading.

The serum comes in a small clear pump bottle, which makes it very easy to use. And don’t be fooled by the small bottle, this stuff is seriously concentrated. If you use too much, or get it too closer to the roots, it will make your hair look so greasy. But that is of course only a good thing as it will make the bottle last so much longer.

Always one for multi-tasking products, I like that this serum can be used in both wet and dry hair. In wet hair, it can be used prior to drying the hair or straightening, to protect from heat damage, and in dry hair, it works brilliantly to smooth down the hair, and minimise any frizz, and not to mention give the hair an amazing shine, which all in all makes the hair look so healthy.

And I love that when it is used as a heat protectant when I heat style my hair, with this serum, I don’t also have to follow with a frizz serum, so talk about multi-tasking. And I generally wash my hair every second day, and on those days, the serum works a treat to freshen up my dry hair, and making it look as if it has been just washed.  And it does all of this without weighing my hair down.


I have very long (at least two inches below my bra strap, and that’s even after getting over two inches cut off just prior to Christmas!) and it is very thick too (even in spite of having gone through months of losing countless hairs daily after giving birth), yet just two tiny pumps is all that is required for my hair.

I simply rub the serum between my hands and distribute throughout my hair, again avoiding the roots, and concentrating on the ends of my hair. Rub hands together and distribute evenly throughout hair.

What I Like:
  • A true multi-tasking product that can be used in wet and dry hair, as a heat protectant and to smooth out frizz and give shine to the hair
  • Very concentrated, so the small bottle will last forever
  • Comes in a small pump bottle that is easy to use
What I Don’t Like:
  • It does contain silicones, which I would prefer if it didn’t, but so far I have not noticed that it is building up in my hair, or weighing it down.

All in all this Frizz-Ease Hair Thermal Protection Formula Serum from John Frieda is a fantastic product, which does exactly what it claims to do, so if you are looking for a multi-tasking product to both protect your hair and combat frizz, then I highly recommend that you try it.

  1. I'm always afraid of using too much from a product like this and then my hair winding up greasy. It sounds like the pump is good at making sure you don't do that. Thanks for the review :)

    1. Haha, I think everyone has tried using too much a few times, but luckily you learn to apply little at a time!
