The product

When heat styling and excessive colouring leaves your hair damaged, dry and dull, a trip to your hairdresser may be needed to fix the problem. Or, if you don’t want to spend a fortune, you can take matters into your own hands at home.

John Frieda Detox & Repair Shampoo and John Frieda Detox & Repair Conditioner are a drugstore haircare duo that combine the nourishing effects of avocado oil and antioxidant-rich green tea to restore shine, softness and repair hair so you’re left with strong, healthy locks.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this shampoo and conditioner to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent John Frieda Detox & Repair Shampoo and John Frieda Detox & Repair Conditioner to a panel of women aged between 18 and 50 with damaged hair caused by heat styling and colouring.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about John Frieda Detox & Repair Shampoo and John Frieda Detox & Repair Conditioner.

How soft and shiny their hair looked: Reviewers loved the way the shampoo and conditioner helped to restore shine and softness to their dull, damaged hair.

How the haircare duo restored moisture to their damaged hair: With continued use of the shampoo and conditioner, our members noticed that their damaged hair became more moisturised. 

The overall improvement to the health of their hair: Reviewers cited an improvement in the overall health of their hair the more they used the products, which made them feel a little less guilty about using hot tools to style their hair.

The verdict

“I used [the] shampoo in conjunction with the conditioner and my hair was left feeling super soft and shiny, and very healthy looking! The scent was also very pleasant and long lasting, but not overpowering and after consistent use over several weeks my hair looks and feels better than ever.”

“As I have damaged hair due to years of colouring, I felt using this in combination with the conditioner really restored the moisture needed to my hair. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who needs to resuscitate their hair.”
REVIEWcrew® Member
“When [I] paired [the shampoo] with its complimenting conditioner, I found my hair overall felt softer and looked shinier and healthier. I also found it didn't become dirty and oily as quickly as it used to. I use a lot of heat styling tools on my hair and I really think this helped to repair some of that damage.”

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently.
