I got such wonderful results using Frizz Ease, Smooth Start Conditioner, that I figured I could take the smoothing effects an extra mile by buying the shampoo. I figured using the two hand in hand would make my hair all the more smooth.
The shampoo comes in the same squeeze tube bottle that the conditioner does, and I love the fact that they come in squeeze tubes because they take up less space in my shower, and are easier to use than standard stand up plastic bottles.
At any rate, the shampoo smells like the same fresh clean scent that you get from the conditioner. I liked the scent, but it doesn’t last.
Smooth Start by John Frieda definitely lathers nicely, and a small amount goes a long way. After rinsing my hair felt moisturized which is really nice, seeing that most shampoos leave my hair feeling dry and course.
As far as results go, I don’t know what the hell happened here, I assumed using this shampoo, followed up with the sister conditioner would really do a number on my hair, and surely it did, only it was not for the better.
Oddly enough, my hair actually dried puffy, frizzy and feeling like crap. I know that’s a little un-lady like to say, but seriously I do not understand how a conditioner alone can work so wonderfully, yet when you add the sister shampoo the results are bonkers. My hair was left more frizzed than it probably ever has looked in its entire lifetime.
I use gel, and air spray to tame the frizz and that usually works wonders for me, however it barely even helped after using this stuff.
All in all, the conditioner is great, but do not use this shampoo first, or you will end up with some really funky, frizzy and horrible looking hair. It is rare for me to have bad hair days, but since using this one, it’s all I have had. I used the shampoo twice to see if perhaps maybe it was just a humid day causing the frizz. I used it on a cool day, with practically no humidity in the air, and the results were just the same.
I’m returning this one, as $5.99 is too high of a price for me to just toss the remaining shampoo out in the garbage.
