Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this hydrating shampoo, conditioner and mask trio

The product

In case you haven’t noticed, the weather is cooling *way* down, which means the inevitable dryness that comes with the chillier seasons is upon us. That means switching out those lightweight summer-friendly formulas for something a bit more heavy duty.

Enter: The John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge 3-step haircare system. There’s John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Shampoo, an adept cleanser that won’t strip hair of all that precious moisture; John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Conditioner, a monoi oil and keratin-infused formula that smooths and hydrates strands for that covetable sleek, shiny finish; and finally, John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Deep Soak Masque, a deeply nourishing hair mask that’ll rehydrate even the most brittle and dry of strands.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this 3-step hydrating haircare system.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Shampoo, John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Conditioner and John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Deep Soak Masque to a panel of women aged 18 to 45 with dry, dehydrated strands in need of a serious boost in hydration.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge 3-step hydrating haircare system.

John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Shampoo: Those of our reviewers who’re regular double-shampooers were big fans of the hydrating shampoo formula. They loved that they were able to effectively cleanse their hair without worrying about it drying out or encouraging split ends.

John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Conditioner: Buh-bye dry strands! This ultra-hydrating conditioner kept our Review Crew members lengths hydrated, shiny and luscious long after styling.

John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Deep Soak Masque: Those of our members who were in need of some extra hair hydration really loved this richly moisturising pick. But surprisingly, those of our members who aren’t usually fussed by hair masks really loved it too, with a few saying they’d used the mask on days when the conditioner just wasn’t enough.

The verdict

“The size [of John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Shampoo] is perfect to carry when you’re going out of town or on a vacation. The shampoo lathers very nicely on hair after rinsing; my hair feels clean but does not have that stiff feeling. I’ve used this as is and when my hair dries, my hair still feels good. When used with the conditioner, it delivers a better result. Hair is softer and with a bouncy feel to it.”

“My hair felt amazingly smooth, soft and silky and looked even better than it felt. I found that my hair was easier to straighten and style, which made the process quicker than usual, resulting in less heat on my hair which is always beneficial! My bleached ends looked much smoother and less brittle and I had minimal flyaways in comparison to usual. The packaging is appealing and easy to use. I love the smell, the whole range is divine. The monoi oil and Keratin give a smooth sheen to the hair and I’ll definitely use this product long term.”

“Let me preface this review by saying I'm not a fan of hair masks!. I've been tempted more than once to buy them off the supermarket shelf with promises of silky hair etc etc. So I tried the John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge Deep Soak Masque with some trepidation. Loved it! Loved that I didn't have to go through the drama of wetting my hair or shampooing my hair, towel drying and then applying. Instead it lives in my shower and I use it alternately with the conditioner. It smells amazing. And it really does perform. My hair feels 'swishy' and healthy and looks great.”
