John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength

I am always on the hunt for new frizz products to help tame unruly hair and actually smooth my hair. This particular bottle intrigued me and I trusted the brand to give me a quality product.
The serum claims to do many things, including act as a heat protectant, hydrate, and tame hair. This particular edition is for more coarse hair, which is what my natural hair is like.
While my hair does feel very soft and smooth, the drawback that I find is that since it is a clear serum, it tends to make your hair shiny. I do not like the appearance of shiny hair in that sense because it makes hair look oily and greasy despite frizz being tamed. This may be a personal preference as you may enjoy the shininess (glossy effect)!
It does not seem to have a lot of product considering I’ve only used it a few times, however it is worth noting that a little goes a long way. The smell is also pleasant and not too heavy. This is also key to help avoiding the oily appearance (use a tiny amount).
I will continue to use it but will be more careful of how much product I use and how well I work it in to avoid the extra shine.
