Product Review: John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: John Frieda
Name: : Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer
Size: 14 ml
Price: approx. $14.99 CAD

As soon as I heard about this product, I knew I had to try it. How amazing does this idea sound???

Whenever I wash my hair, it always looks really great the next day - shiny, soft, fragrant...the only thing is that I have what seems like a million flyaway hairs that last until I either put some product in it to tame it or a my hair gets oily and weighs down the flyaways.

Well, this product promises to banish flyaways...and all in a convenient little tube too!

The product info states: "This portable wand polishes broken strands, smoothing flyaways and frayed ends with Inca Inchi oil to keep hair sleek and smooth. This must-have item for any woman’s hair styling arsenal has a crystal-clear formula that weightlessly smoothes flyaways without diminishing hair’s volume. The Touch-up Flyaway Tamer is small enough to fit in your purse making it ideal for touch-ups on the go. To use, simply brush the wand over dry, styled hair to touch-up and give a boost
of shine.

The first test run that I did was last month. I was going to a baptism and washed my hair about an two hours before the event. Immediately after I finished blow-drying my hair, I had to get dressed, get made up and dash out the door. So my fair was definitely doing the whole flyaway thing. In the car, I took the wand out and lightly ran it over the top of my head over the flyaway hairs. Instantly, they were smoothed away. I had used a little too much product, so smoothed down my hair with my hand - big mistake! I ended up some product on my hand where it instantly became sticky. Luckily, I had some wet-wipes with me, otherwise I would have been in trouble since I had nothing to wipe my hand on.

To Purr About:
- easy to use mascara-style wand makes it easy to apply the product to a few hairs
- instantly smoothed down flyaway hair
- compact tube packaging makes it easy to toss into a bag/purse

Claws Out:
- if you touch it right after application, it's sticky, which can be annoying if you're not at home or have any tissue handy

Final Comments:
I love this product. Except for the stickiness if you touch it with your hand, it really does get rid of flyaway hairs instantly without leaving your hair greasy or oily. I'm not sure how shiny it makes your hair since I didn't notice my hair being any shinier than usual, but I'm so happy with the flyaway fix that I don't really care if the product does anything else!

The convenience of the packaging and the applicator makes this a great on-the-go product and something I wish I've had for years!

Does the product always stay sticky in your hair? Or does it "dry" into a non-sticky form?

Hi! The product "dries" into a non-sticky form and actually ends up pretty smooth. You just have to remember not to touch it when it's still wet! :)
