I recently moved to Malta from the UK and one of the harsh realities I’m facing is that accessing some products is more difficult from here than it is from the UK. I miss shopping!
My hair is naturally curly and for a while, my go to styling product for my hair has been the Aussie Curl Define + Shine mousse. I apply it on my wet hair and let it air dry. I scrunch my hair a little bit while it dries and I get nice, defined and moisturised curls. Unfortunately, I don’t have easy access to my Aussie mousse from Malta and a month into my stay here, I’ve ran out of it.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse caught my eye at Pavi Supermarket (in Malta, of course). John Frieda sounds like a name of a good hairdresser. Easing frizz is what I want to do. It costs €9.46 so it must be alright.
Sooooo, in short… “Frizz Ease” my ass.
Usually my frizz starts coming out after I’ve slept and my hair rubs on my pillow. That friction disturbs my curls and creates frizz.
With the John Frieda Frizz Ease, my hair starts looking frizzy from the day of washing and before I even get the opportunity to apply friction to my curls. I don’t know what it is, my hair somehow doesn’t like this mousse.
By day 2, I’m a frizzy mess. My hair looks extremely frizzy and feels very dry.
With the Aussie mousse that I’m used to, my hair has never looked like the frizzy mess my hair gets into on day 2 of using the John Frieda mousse. Yes, my curls do start getting a mind of their own but my hair still feels very moist.
So yeah, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong with the John Frieda mousse and whether I’m using it in the right way or not but somehow, my hair simply goes nuts when it comes into contact with this product.
If you have any suggestions for a replacement for my Aussie Curl Define + Shine mousse, PLEASE let me know.
