Review - How to Tame the Frizz and Increase the Shine of Your Hair


John FriedaYou know that great feeling you get at the salon when the professionals there cut and style your hair?  The reason your hair performs so well then is due in part to the stylist's skills and in part to the top quality styling tools they use.

John Frieda is one of the most well-known brands in the hair styling industry, which is why I was thrilled to review three selections from his newest line of styling brushes.  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed the following John Frieda Styling Brushes:

Sleek Finish Ionic Brush which retails for $25.00

Volume Curls Small Round Brush which retails for $12.99, but is currently on sale for $4.99

Full Volume Large Thermal Round Brush which retails for $14.99

John Frieda Styling BrushesUnfortunately, I have been "blessed" with fine, straight hair.  While my husband claims that he would kill for my hair over his coarse, curly locks, I just don't get it.  My hair has always laid board straight to my head causing me to rely on a myriad of styling tools and products to make it look presentable.

In the 20+ years that I've been styling my hair, I've become quite familiar with the large thermal round brush which creates oodles of volume.  But, I've actually burned myself (and my hair) in the past because those brushes can get dangerously hot.

John Frieda Sleek Finish Ionic BrushThat's why I was excited to try the three new styling brushes from John Frieda.  Here's the lowdown on each brush and its features:

Sleek Finish Ionic Brush

  • Reduces frizz and static, leaving hair shiny and more manageable using ionic technology
  • Ion generator emits negative IONS to reduce frizz and add shine
  • Double-sided ion generator
  • Metal bristles in the cushion and the central position of the ion generator increase anti-static benefits
  • Ball-tipped bristles and flexible cushion base for optimal comfort
  • Ergonomically designed handle for comfort grip
  • On/Off switch
  • Operates with 2 AAA batteries (not included)

John Frieda Volume Curls Small Round BrushVolume Curls Small Round Brush

  • Unique design for maximum airflow from dryer
  • Reduces frizz & smoothes flyaways

Full Volume Large Thermal Round Brush

  • Volume & shine
  • Deep shine silicone
  • Tourmaline-ionic infused
  • Faster drying & styling
  • Creates soft waves or added volume
  • Increases shine
  • Reduces frizz & smoothes flyaways

John Frieda Full Volume BrushBecause of my hair's texture, I naturally gravitated towards the John Frieda Full Volume Large Thermal Round Brush.  The crushed tourmaline gemstones release natural ions into your hair as you style for tons of shine.  These ions also help flatten the hair's cuticle layer which increases shine as well as reduces frizz.  During the hot, humid months here in Texas, I appreciate anything that might tame the frizzies and this styling brush from John Frieda definitely made a difference.

My hair seemed more shiny and sleek, yet pumped with volume.  I also didn't have a problem with the brush itself getting too hot either, which is especially important for me since my hair is both fine and chemically-treated.  I was also a big fan of the Sleek Finish Ionic Brush for this styling tool helped me to achieve sleek, smooth hair that looked both healthy and shiny.  The flexible cushion base of this brush also allows for gently, yet effectively, untangling hair whether wet or dry.

I love the results I've seen thus far from using the John Frieda styling brushes on both my own hair and my daughter's hair.  If you would like to finally bring that salon fresh style and sleekness to your hair without paying those salon prices, then I would definitely recommend giving the new John Frieda styling brushes a try!
