I am a Do It Your-selfer. I went from dark, dark brown hair to a full out Sun Blonde. This took me several years to do (I don't ever use bleach) I've learned that by gradually piecing in color (No Foils!...they leave obvious roots!)that I was able to obtain my beautiful shade of blonde. I am part Asian (not blessed with the best hair) ..its coarse, dry, a bit damaged (duh) and frizzy double duh!). I wash my hair only once every 4-5 days) I wanted to find a DIY straightener that would noticably improve the appearance of my hair without side effects. I read several product reviews on the Organix Keratin 30 day straightening treatment, but because several reviews said it could turn my hair brassy, I nixed that and found the John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling product at my local store. It does Exactly what it says its does! This is the best alternatative to a salon treatment, for a minimal cost. This is So Easy to use! I shampoo and (yes) even conditioned my hair, toweled dry, and blow dried gently, to about 50% dry (no styling involved). Then sprayed 10-12 sprays all around, I combed through, I took a round/styling brush and blow dry completely, straightening as best I could, until 100% dry (I immediately felt and saw a differance! I finished with a straightening iron,(be patient!). I sectioned my hair, starting underneath, worked my way up and Viola! Instant results that I (and you will love!) My hair felts softer, the ends were healthier, my hair was shinier and bouncier! I loved the results so much, I bought another..for the price, a hair product doesn't get any better than this!

First off, let me say this product is specifically meant to be used WITH a flat iron. It wont straighten your hair on it's own, it is meant to lengthen the time that your hair stays straight after flat ironing it.

I have curly, fine hair and used about 5-7 sprays of the product on damp hair. Wasn't sticky or greasy and had a nice smell. I then blowdried and noticed my hair was less frizzy than usual. After flat ironing, it was shiny and straight but seemed a to have a little less body than normal.

The next day, I noticed my ends starting to curl up a bit and had to touch up with my flat iron. My hair also seemed quite lifeless, not much volume. On the upside, I had no frizz.

Bottom line: It works well as an anti-frizz product/shine product, but not so well at keeping your hair straight for longer. Considering that this is what it it advertised as, I would not buy it again for this purpose. I would rather just buy one of the actual no-frizz serums from John Frieda.

    For some strange reason, I have started to develop curls and waves in my bangs.
    I tried the John Frieda Frizz-Ease and thought there was improvement. I decided not to use it again and thought I would not notice that much difference. W-R-O-N-G !!! I looked like I had French Poodle bangs! Now I have proved that there is a difference! I will not be without it!
    If it does not work well for you, try using MORE.

      Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray, 3.5 fl oz:

      I've been "blessed" with curly hair. Curly hair + humidity = one unhappy lady. I finally broke down to try this stuff. It works fantastically! I'm sold. Will be using this product for a long, long time.

      It's easy to use. And it holds the straight (or the fabricated curling iron curls). And it doesn't weigh your hair down. The only negative I can see is that it seems to dry out my hair somewhat. A small price to pay for no frizzies or unwanted kinky curls.

      Promt delivery. Good condition.

        I have curly sometimes frizzy hair. This product works great on the first day. My hair is straight after blow drying and using a flat iron. However by the next day my hair is kinky,frizzy depending on the weather. I then need to use the straight iron several times throughout the day. I do not wash my hair everyday so it needs frequent touch ups on days 2 and 3. I would still recommend the product since it does such a great job the day I wash my hair.

        Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray, 3.5 fl oz:

        I used the entire bottle b4 making a final decision. This product does help smooth and straighten hair on Day 1, but Day 2 is curling up and definitely has a "coated buildup" feeling to hair's touch. Just not a healthy feeling or hold to the hair. My hairstylist has really commented about buildup and that's the only thing I've done different.

            I had high hopes for this product, but it isn't any better than any other creme, gel, or lotion. My hair is curly, colored, and dry. It didn't stay straight or smooth more than a few hours after styling. One day later, it was bent at the ends, and fuzzy down the shaft. I won't use this product again.

                Didn't work AT ALL for me. I have generally frizzy hair that will be very curly if air dried, but have managed to control my style using Redken Align, Aveda serum and flat iron. Even though I can get my hair pretty straight, I, like many on this board, am still hoping for that miracle cure that will keep my hair from frizzing up in the humidity. This product is not it. I could tell from the moment I finished drying my hair that it didn't work. I sprayed it about 10-12 times and combed it through. I didn't use any other products on half my hair, but once I saw that the John Frieda wasn't doing anything, I tried to add the Redken to the top. All of my hair is still frizzy and LESS straight than I can get it otherwise. Maybe it works for some - might be worth the [$] to find out - but I am going to stick to my regular routine and hope that miracle cure is still out there somewhere....

                    Dirties hair and does not add hold to hair to be able to straighten. Causes user to start over by washing it out to clean the hair before going out in public.

                    I have gotten my hair professionally straightened using the Japanese straightening, as well as Keratin treatments. This product works just as well as the professional straightening, only it takes a little while longer to style your hair. It's well worth the hassle to save a bundle of money! I have very frizzy hair that gets out of control in the heat and humidity, but after several uses I can say my hair has remained smooth, with no frizz, even in high humidity! I am in love with this product!

                      Follow directons. Don't overload product on hair and stay away from the roots. A little goes a long way. After I wash and towel dry my hair, I blowdry it out with a round brush, then I use my iron on it. I live in Florida and it doesn't kink up but gives a natural soft curve at the end of my long hair. I have also been caught in the rain and it didn't frizz at all. I have been using this product since it first came out. I love it!! I wish they would make a travel size....

                        Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray, 3.5 fl oz:

                        I never write reviews, but I can't take it anymore. This is the absolute best straightening product I have ever used, and I've paid up to $300 for a product. After reading about this product, seeing commercials, reading the good reviews of others, I knew I'd have to at least try it, but honestly, I was thinking the whole time "Ok, John Frieda, your product sounds really nice and I'm sure your intentions are good, but chances are that you've never encountered my hair before." I have struggled for my whole life with naturally spirally curly hair and have used a straightener on it or been blowing it out for the last 12 years. Over these 12 years, it has only stayed perfectly straight for longer than 3 hours after the initial styling for maybe 30 days each year. Most of the time, I get kinks from putting my bangs behind my ear, and other random poof and kinks appear for no reason. In the summer, after sleeping, I would also wake up with the most disgusting kinks and curls, so I would have to immediately wash my hair and straighten again before leaving the house.

                        So I bought this a week ago, and have been using it for the last 7 days straight (to ensure that the majesty of this product is not a fluke, and also because my hair is too oily to go 3 days without washing, no matter what, but it is much less oily the following day when using this product, due to the fact that there is a lot less heat styling time needed, I assume). While I can't vouch for the "3 day" part of this, I can certainly vouch for the "straight"! It's simply incredible. I wash, towel dry, and spray about 15 sprays evenly (my hair is to the middle of my back), comb through with a fine tooth comb. When I do a half-assed blowout on my hair, it looks like I spent a half hour, carefully blowing sections! Nope, just brushing huge ones straight down with a round brush, then curling the ends under slightly with the brush. After doing this, even without touching the straightener, my hair looks amazing -and trust me, I never say that- like I'm on a hair commercial with impossible thickness that most people assume would have to be fake extensions. That's after 10 minutes of blowdrying and leaving the house. The product recommends also straightening after blowdrying, which I have done on the days that I didn't blow dry with the round brush. After using the straightener, I had the most incredibly silky, naturally straight looking and feeling hair. Nothing like the just straightened, dried out, unnatural straightened hair with lack of movement - at all! Much less thick than just blow drying, of course, but not flat, either, and lots of movement. With either of these methods, and in extreme east coast humidity, I had not one kink or frizz in 7 days (and it rained on 2 of these days! Yes, you have to cover your hair in the rain, but the evaporation and the occasional drops that blow into your hair won't ruin it for a change!). Then, the last test is to see what sleeping on it in the heat would do overnight. I woke up and couldn't believe it. I could brush right through it, and still no kinks or curls! I could run to Starbucks without a shower for the first time - ever. This really is a life changer. There's nothing else to say. There's simply nothing else like it. If you have any of the problems I mentioned, kiss them goodbye, and for real this time!
