Review: John Frieda Full Repair Root Lift Foam

This is part of the John Frieda Full Repair range. The root lift foam is part of stage three, the styling phase along with the heat activated styling spray.

"Create instant body and protect hair from heat damage with this hard working foam. After working the product through wet, sectioned hair, style for lasting weightless life and full bodied hair"

Just as you see, a nice plastic bottle with a removable cap. Contains a good 200ml and you don't need to shake it the way you would with a traditional aerosol can. The dispenser is a nice plastic easy to press cap, with a wide nozzle.

More liquid-y than mousse, imagine that's as this is a foam product. Different from a typical hair mousse.
Pretty much the standard smell for hair mousse to the honest. Slight floral fragrance there too.

Stickiness Factor?
While this is wet there is a stickiness factor, however once you have blow dried it in to your hair it is fine. You will need to wash your hair the next day though, then again if you have been out with your big hair you probably will need to wash it anyhow!

How does it meet its claims?
Really does add volume and root lift, even to my hair which is quite a feat! Just look at the post here I did demonstrating the products. Holds the lift and in doing so manages to not weigh down your hair the way in which a typical mousse would. 

+ Adds volume and root lift
+ Consistency means its easy to distribute throughout the roots
+ Nozzle is wide, means better application

- Consistency is different to standard mousse which takes a little time to get used to

I would buy this as it does work so well on my straight, heavy, long hair.

  1. That looks really good, I might pick that up actually - my hair's really long at the minute and it just seems to hang when I straighten or blow-dry it. Thanks for this post!

    1. Depends on how long your hair is and how heavy as to if it is worth it. Could be epic on shorter thin hair :)
