This is the same product ingredient wise as the old Blonde Dream Creme. I hadn't been able to find the Dream Creme very often and when I did on line the cost was 2-4 times what it used to be and this was old stock. I used that product for over 10 years and lasts forever when using a pea size dosage. I am so happy I found it again.

Maybe because I grew up with a minimalist mother, no sisters, and my friends were low-key on beauty, I never really learned what a lot of beauty products are for. "Finishing creme" is one of them. I read about this product in a magazine, and it sounded like something that would make my hair look polished, defrizzed, and, well, "finished" (I'm not very talented at styling my own hair despite my best efforts). I have thin/soft hair at the top and wavy, thick (but not coarse) hair at the bottoms (beneath my ears), which I usually straighten. I often end up with fly-aways on the top, so that's where I aimed this product. FIRSTLY, I learned that you only need less than a pea-sized amount of this, and it's best to spread it around in your fingers before applying it -- otherwise it globs in one spot on your head and looks greasy and flat. It doesn't really tame frizz or fly-aways the way I'd hoped, but I suppose it's better than using nothing. If I spread it around with my fingers/hands and apply it to the whole length of my hair, even just a thin layer, it seems to rob my hair of body (and I like that when my hair is straightened, it's still thick and full; I hate when it's flat). I do like the smell, which lasts for hours, even just a tiny bit of product. It is soft and creamy, and it almost makes my hair soft & silky, but flattens it in the process. All in all, I only used this product rarely for about a year after I got it, and now it's stashed away with the rest of my products I'm over.

Of note, I have used shine serum (a couple different brands) before, and that's usually too greasy too; maybe my hair just isn't coarse enough for these products to work whatever miracle they're supposed to?

Cons

    Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme, 4 oz:

    I have very thick, coarse hair that's somewhere in between curly and wavy and it's a nightmare when I first wake up! This product is perfect for taming bedhead when you have an early morning and no need to shower. Just a tiny bit on dry hair keeps everything down and in place while adding a softness that you can see. I can feel that my roots are a bit oily by the end of the day but you can't see it at all.

      I couldn't live without this product this winter! Not only does it reduce frizz (before and after wearing a hat), but controls static. Love it!

        Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme, 4 oz:

        I have some coarse dry white hair mixed in with graying, brown hair. This product controls the former and helps the latter retain the wave. I do not use it without adding some warm water which seems to help it from becoming too sticky and stiff/hard however if it does a quick comb stops it and retains the wave.

          A little goes a long way, you can feel it immediately soften hair when applied to your wet hair. I notice the difference when I've run out and have to use something else. I've used this for years and can't do without it!

          Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme, 4 oz:

          I use this after blowdrying my hair, before other hair products such as gel, or other styling products. Since I color my hair, it tends to be on the dry side, so this product makes it more manageable and adds shine, and makes it easier to style. You don't need much, a little goes a long way.

              I use this product after I shampoo,condition and blow dry. It has a very pleasant smell - fresh and not at all overpowering. It leaves my hair feeling soft and healthy, and falls right into place. I find myself running my fingers through my hair more, it is so touchable. I have fine hair, but lots of it. So many products weigh it down quite easily. I find this product very refreshing.

                I have naturally curly hair and it tends to frizz on the ends. I use this finishing cream to touch up my ends and it works great! Highly reccomend!

                  After I wash or just wet my hair, I rub it in, and it makes my wavy hair curly and keeps it in place. I don't have to use hairspray for which my allergies are grateful. My hair is shinier and a little darker (not so gray).
