JOHN FRIEDA

I was kindly sent a John Frieda box through Influenster today after I matched the requirements in their quiz about the type of hair I have. I was quite excited to try the products, as I NEVER splurge on hair products. I am a wash, dry, brush out and tie up type of girl. No fuss, no muss. Please note that all these opinions are my own, I am not being paid for this review.
