Sometimes a new beauty product comes along and you think BA-ZINGA! That’s the one for me!
This is what happened when I saw the new John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer. This product is basically a clear gel type product with a mascara wand applicator for flyaway hairs, around the roots or ends.
John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer’s crystal-clear formula with Inca Inchi Oil weightlessly smoothes flyaways and frayed ends to keep full-bodied styles perfectly polished. Ideal for on-the-go touch-ups and a boost of shine.
Why did this product excite me so?
Because nearly 12 months after the birth of Baby H, and experiencing some serious post natal hair loss, I am now starting to get some regrowth, especially around the hair line. And it’s ugly. In fact it looks like I’ve got a horrible wispy fringe – one of those fringes that someone who is a bit scared of getting a fringe gets and because it’s so uncommitted it just looks wrong.
Also it sticks up like I’ve been electrocuted, AND, I have tried a selection of products to keep the wisps under control but it’s hard (believe it or not). Gels look crunchy, creams look greasy, waxes look oily, hair spray doesn’t do too much. What’s a gal to do?
There’s 14ml of product so this will last a while – it’s like a chunky mascara tube, and certainly compact enough to carry around.
Here’s the brush – nothing fancy, it’s big enough to use on the hair:
My biggest fear when using this clear gel like formula is that it would look crunchy or shiny which has happened to me, and then everyone just looks at the shiny strands on your hair.
So I started brushing away the greasy bits of hair, and at first this formula looks wet. It’s nice to use and brushes easily (not too much tangling).
Once dried the shiny look fades away.
And what I had was….yay! No more flyways.
This product does exactly what it says it will but it does do it very well…not crunchy or greasy or weird. Also, it has very good control and I didn’t notice any strays for the rest of the day.
If you have minor flyways at the ends a serum would probably do a job but if you have stubborn flyways or weird spiky hair – then this product is rather brill.
You can buy it at Boots for £10.99. It’s actually dearer than I thought it would be HOWEVER I foresee this lasting at least a year (I would want to get another one then anyway for hygiene reasons!).
