Just launched: John Frieda, master of all frizz, has just released miracle-product "Three Days Straight" in stores. The heat-activated spray is touted as an "at-home alternative to salon keratin treatments" witha smoothing, straightening effect that lasts up to three days—or until your next wash. How does it work? The non-scientific explanation goes something like this:
When applied to damp hair, the weightless spray provides heat protection as it blocks out frizz and enhances straightening results, locking in sleek, glossy texture for up to three days. John Frieda® Hair Care’s proprietary blend of polymers with keratin protein wraps each strand, sealing in straight style as it smoothes.How well does it work? The reviews, so far seem pretty awesome. "It certainly did the job, kept my hair straight better than the other products I've tried," said reviewer darkangel81 on TotalBeauty.com. "My hair felt soft, but I could feel the product in it. Not a bad thing. Didn't bother me. Overall very good product." Reviewer magoo888 on Drugstore.com says: "I love it my hair doesn't feel sticky and yes it lasts 3 days, even on the fourth day it still looked good, but I thought I should wash it and used it again."
