FINDING effective hair products can be a challenge. Faced with multiple brands providing an ever-growing range of products, the choices can be overwhelming and disappointing if the wrong decision is made. My hair can be very temperamental; being on the drier side I struggle with taming its frizzy qualities while attempting to hold a style, and a false move in product choice can lead to an unsightly result. Therefore I’m reluctant to change my tried and tested hair products and a little hesitant to try JF Man Control System range by John Frieda – but I’m very glad I did.
JM Man Control System Taming Shampoo
With a slight pearly-iridescent sheen and a velvety lather, the Taming Shampoo has subtle but fragrant aromas. Cucumber extracts hydrate the hair, allowing for a nourished finish once washed out. Following the Taming Shampoo, the Calming Conditioner continues to replenish the hair. Only a small amount necessary, the conditioner is vital to ensure a well-moisturised head of hair, leaving a silky texture and a welcomed shine once dried – great if, like me, your natural hair has a duller tone.
JM Man Control System Calming Conditioner
My personal favourite, the Grooming Gel, is best applied when the hair is still damp. Created to result in a voluminous and firm finish, it is a key ingredient for achieving well-styled hair without compromise on a smooth texture. Once applied to the damp hair, to achieve your desired result can depend on how you dry it – air dry for a firm hold or blow dry for a soft hold.
To complete the look, the Sculpting Paste is perfect for shaping the hair into bold styles that lasts throughout the day, retaining a mouldable quality to change style whenever you fancy. Dispensed through a pumped bottle, I opt for a minimal amount as the paste goes a long way whilst further amplifying the sleek shine.
