So, it’s been a crazily hectic month of travel and work and I’m settling down to a mild gallop … well, sort of! I was really fortunate to travel to Dubai and Monaco in this past month and across the country back home in South Africa, but this travel is starting to take its toll. Well, not just on my family time, but on my body (haven’t been able to get in ANY gym time, besides running through airports) and my hair. I must be honest, I am a very low-maintenance type of woman who prefers painting her own nails at home (or secretly in the bathroom at an event before going on stage), so I don’t often get a chance to go the beauty salon or hair salon for that matter. The joys of non-stop air travel are that you are constantly tired and in an artificial climate zone and that does eventually start leaving you looking a bit worse for wear.
I had been sent a number of products from John Frieda (yes, they ARE paying for me to review their product, but I am giving it a fair go) with the promise of Frizz-Free hair – even when wearing my natural curls. Usually, I stick to what I know and am not that keen to change up my routine as I like fail-proof products and cannot afford any mistakes on my crowning glory, especially as I have been shooting non-stop and on stage for highly photographed events. So, a hair disaster would not go unnoticed 😉
I know the famous song (which I LOVE) “I am not my hair” is a political statement, but when it comes to my psychological state – I quite simply AM my hair. A good hair day to me equals confidence and so, I am very careful about not changing up too much and sticking to what works for me. So, when I tried the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensity Masque (which promises to ease the frizz too), I wasn’t expecting much.
Fast forward a few minutes and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The amount of heat damage my mane has to endure during shoots is quite intense and leads to my hair losing much moisture which in turn leads to frizziness. This incredible little “miracle” treatment managed to quench my hair’s thirst and took away the frizziness with ease. So, thanks for the introduction to your range, John Frieda (their products are available exclusively from Clicks in store and online), and let me know if you’d like to win a Frizz Free Haircare hamper in the comments section below.
