John Frieda 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray

What they say:
Transform curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts up to 3 days (or until your next shampoo). Introducing Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray. Our revolutionary heat-activated formula with keratin protein wraps each strand to seal in longer-lasting straightness without weighing down. Protects against heat damage and blocks frizz.

It appealed to me as someone who would love to get a permanent blow dry (also known as a Brazilian blow dry) but can't afford it. Though for £6.99? That's more than do-able.

My hair is naturally wavy and very frizzy if left to air dry so I prefer to straighten it. It does end up with little kinks and gets a little fluffy as the days progress, especially if the weather is horrible so anything that helps keep it straight is brilliant in my books.

Directions are simple enough, it has to be applied to damp or wet hair (not dry), blow dried then sealed in with hair straighteners. I once forgot to blow dry and it left me with very glossy defined curls as it air dried. Once I straightened my hair it worked fine.

So this is what's pictured on the back of the box followed by how it worked for me.

My hair on the third day of using 3-day straight.

My hair on the third day straightened as normal without using any other product. Please note that my hair isn't wavy in this photo, the camera just captured movement when the wind blew.

What I think:
I did end up with a few slight kinks on the third day when I used it but nothing I would be outraged about. Personally I don't think there's much difference in terms of how straight it makes my hair as opposed to not using it. However the one thing I did notice is that when I used this product it made my hair shiner/glossier and you can see this in the photos. See how dull my hair looks in the second photo? It was also easier to manage and less knotty. I would buy this again for these reasons alone. The added bonus is I wouldn't have to buy a seperate heat protectant spray.

Have you tried this yet? What do you think? 


  1. Your hair looks gorgeous! I think I have tried a smaple of this product but I didn't really care about it as my hair is naturally straight. However, it did make it fell soooo soft!

  2. now i was quite excited to try this wen i heard about it, tho im glad i havnt gone and bought the box myself, my hair kinda looks like that 3rd day after straightenin with my straightners and (without meaning to be big headed about it) my hair is shiney anways know wat i mean, so for me, its a lil pointless, ooh before u think i got straight hair i dont lol its a bush :P thanks for the review hun xxx

  3. @GABY thanks :) yeh I like the way it makes my hair feel too xx

    @Amina lol you're lucky, I need all the help I can get when it comes to shiny hair! xx

  4. I've tried the Keratin treatment this fall. I was not too impressed with it in my hair. It made it a bit straighter, but it really was not much of a difference. Plus, when I wanted my hair curly, it did not look the same. What can I say? I wanted the best of both worlds: curly & straight.


  5. i have heard abt this but was waiting for someone to try and review it. I might buy it for the gloss reason since my hair is dull. thanks for the detailed review!
