John Frieda Root Awakening Range Review


John Frieda describe the Root Awakening collection “Root Awakening works from root to tip to awaken stronger, shinier and 3x healthier hair in just one week, giving you the hair you’ve always dreamed of”

The range contains natural eucalyptus and essential oils which make your scalp tingle slightly when used which makes you feel energised.  The gentle formula is safe for colour treated hair and is generally aimed at normal hair types. 

Root Awakening Strength Infusing Shampoo and Conditioner for Normal Hair 

This shampoo is lovely to use and lathers well, I like the conditioner less as it left my hair quite slippery and without the guts it needs to hold a style.   The eucalyptus is very invigorating and I enjoyed the slight tingle feeling as I washed my hair.  The products leave my hair clean until my next wash and seems to wash out all hair styling products thoroughly.  I was not allergic to these product and had no dry scalp or other issues.  I really like the packaging as the squeeze tubes are easy to use and the colours work well with the branding of the products. I do have to say that I wouldn’t personally repurchase these as, while there was nothing I particularly disliked, there was nothing that made the shampoo and conditioner stand out to me and as a massive haircare lover I need something to wow me before I part with my cash.  6/10

Root Awakening Strength Boosting Leave In Spray 

By far my favourite product from the range this leaves my hair so shiny it’s crazy, if you have dark hair this is an absolute must have as my hair looked like it was from some sort of photoshopped pantene advert picture, the shine was immense!  This will last ages as you only need a tiny bit so it’s great value for money.  All you do is spray 4 spritzes over your damp hair before blow drying and your hair is silky smooth and manageable with a huge amount of shine. I love this and would repurchase it. 9/10
