If there is one hair-related peeve that we can all probably agree on, it’s having to deal with dry, frizzy hair on a regular basis. Unfortunately, our hot and humid climate is exactly what enables frizz to thrive, not to mention other factors like heat styling, ageing and even working long hours in an air-conditioned environment that strip your hair of essential moisture.
Besides making your hair look dull and lacklustre, frizzy and unruly hair can leave you looking frazzled and unprofessional – a huge no-no for any self-respecting working woman!
An easy, fuss-free solution to taming frizz and pesky flyaways is, of course, with an anti-frizz smoothing serum. For that, pick up the iconic International Award-winning John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Serum, which has recently been reformulated to include Ginseng extract, an ingredient known for its nourishing and stimulating properties.
In case you didn’t know, the Frizz Ease Original Serum has been a cult favourite since it first launched in the United Kingdom 30 years ago. (In fact, it has collected at least 63 awards and nominations in the UK alone, and is a multi-year winner in our annual Hair Awards!)
Created to tackle all types of frizzy hair issues, this innovative serum helps rescue straw-like and unruly hair and restore it to a smoother, shinier state by protecting your strands from the heat and humidity, as well as keeping your hair more hydrated.
To use, pump the product into your palm:
Spread the serum all over your palms:
For best results, apply throughout wet hair (no rinsing needed). Blow dry your hair for optimum results as the serum is heat-activated:
We asked three of our team members, who have different hair types and frizz concerns, to try out the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Serum (Ginseng Extract). Here’s what they have to say:
“As I’ve undergone one too many chemical treatments like bleaching and dyeing, my hair literally looks and feels like hay. My hair has also become more brittle, so some of the frizz and flyaways comes from broken strands. When applying the Frizz Ease Original Serum into wet hair, I find that it absorbs well without leaving behind a greasy or heavy feeling. For long and damaged hair like mine, it’s better to use one full pump so that you leave no strand uncoated. My post-serum hair feels smoother, shinier and less hay-like!” – Digital Lead Elizabeth Liew
“I’m impressed by the Frizz Ease Original Serum and how it manages to tame my ‘bird’s nest’ hair and make it look more presentable and manageable. Usually, my naturally curly hair looks like a lion’s mane due to its reaction to the humidity in the air. But after using the serum, I do notice an improvement in frizziness as my tresses look smoother and the curls are more defined. It’s easy to use and a little goes a long way so don’t over-pump!” – Features Editor Natalya Molok
“My hair is short but thick and frizzy, and tends to tangle after washing which makes it hard to comb through. The frizziness is also more obvious since I’ve gotten highlights! The Frizz Ease Original Serum feels a bit sticky but is easy to apply on wet hair, and just one pump is enough for my thick mane. Also, applying this serum before blow-drying makes my hair more manageable and less crazy, and it helps my hair stay in shape longer too.” – Designer Xu Mei Yan
