Review: John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo

The Price
The price is this shampoo is very reasonable. It comes in around €8.00 and on many occasions Boots offer a 3 for the price of 2 on the John Frieda range. My hair is type is dry and frizzy and can have the look about it that I have stuck my finger in an electrical socket so I tend to be really fussy about my hair care and mostly opt for higher end products. Full Repair feels and smells like a high end product so for €8.00 I think it is a bargin.

The Packaging
The packaging is the same as all the John Frieda products. The only issue I have about the packaging is that it is sometimes difficult to open with wet hands and when I open it with my teeth I manage to get a mouthful of shampoo! I also tend to use a lot more product with this style of packaging as it flows out freely, but I think that is just me rather than a packaging flaw. The good thing about this kind of packaging is that is it very simple to cut the top off when the product is nearly finished and you always manage to get more product out.

The Product
I am actually shocked how much I like this product. I am usually a shampoo snob and think the best shampoos are the high end brands. Firstly this smells divine! The scent filled up my shower while I was washing my hair and it was heavenly. It smelt like I was in a luxurious salon. It also had a lovely lather to it and my hair felt lovely and clean afterwards. Sometime when I use a rich shampoo I find it can leave a residue on my hair thankfully this was not the case.

What I tend to do when washing my hair is for my first wash cleanse my hair with whatever is in the shower. This gets rid of the oils and grease. For my second wash I use my Kerastase shampoo and follow with the Kerastase hair mask. (I use this as my conditioner)

On the last few occasions I used the Full Repair for my two washes and followed with my Kerestase conditioner. After washing my hair I always rinse my hair with cold water over the bath. I find it makes my hair lovely and shiney and would be amazed how much product is still left in your hair. After washing my hair felt lovely and soft and I could not tell the different that I had used a drugstore shampoo.

Have you girls tried any John Frieda products? What do you think of them? Personally the Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight is a holy grail item for me.



  1. I really liked this one too, left my hair feeling nice and light!

    1. Aww Thank you for your comment xxx I was amazed how lovely my hair felt afterwards! And my hair smelt gorgeous! :) xxx

  2. I used to use John Frieda a whole lot: Sheer Blonde, Go Blonder, Root (somethingorothereth...feeling to lazy to go get up and read the bottle!) and before that, the really old Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, which left my hair feeling and looking amazing. Naturally that's no longer available! I don't use it so much any more, only because I've switched to a line that won't lighten my color. (I'm greying now, and sadly I'm not going full-on Celtic silver like my aunt, just "mousy-grey" so I'm dying it for a few years.)


I love reading your comments! They make my day and I always reply to any questions. Thank you for visiting my blog, I really appreciate it. Xxx
