The product

When we think of shiny, lustrous and vibrant hair, we’re usually picturing ourselves sitting in the salon after being blessed by the magic hands of our hairdresser.

But imagine if you could bottle that experience and take it home with you…

Well, you can officially retire from dreaming your days away because the John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Shampoo and John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Conditioner exist.

Infused with a nourishing boost of rosehip oil and a shine-enhancing complex, this impressive duo makes light work of hydrating hair without leaving it feeling like a greasy mess. Plus, it imparts a glossy sheen that helps to enhance your hair colour too. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this shortcut to salon-fresh strands. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Shampoo and John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Conditioner to a panel of women aged 18 to 35 with dull, dry hair who were looking to add shine and lustre.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Shampoo and John Frieda Vibrant Shine Colour Shine Conditioner.

The shiny, smooth finish it gave: Review Crew® members loved the way the range smoothed frizz and left hair with a glossy shine that enhanced the vibrancy of their hair colour. 

The hydrating and nourishing formula: Reviewers found that the rosehip oil-infused formula helped to hydrate and nourish their hair without leaving it feeling greasy or heavy. 

The affordable price point: Our members were impressed by the low price point, especially for such a luxe-feeling product that provided results.

The verdict

“I really like this shampoo so far. It smells amazing but not overpowering. It’s a gentle shampoo which requires a second wash if the hair is greasy. It’s very hydrating and does not dry out my hair at all. My hair stays soft and smooth once the shampoo is rinsed out. I use this shampoo in conjunction with the conditioner and Shine Spray from the same line. My hair looks shinier and silky soft after blow dry. I notice there’s less fly away and frizziness compared to other shampoo from other brands.”

“This shampoo was so nice to use! As someone with long hair, I didn't feel I needed to use a lot of product. It lathered up nicely and felt light and didn’t weigh my hair down. The scent is just gorgeous and one that made my whole bathroom smell incredible! My hair didn’t feel heavy at all, it felt nourished and added a little shine to my coloured hair. Highly recommended! I’d love to see this in a larger bottle format because I can definitely see myself repurchasing this again and again! Who says good shampoo can’t be affordable?”

“I was so excited to try this conditioner after hearing great things about the John Frieda range, but hadn't gotten around to trying it yet. I really love this conditioner for a few reasons.. its very light weight and gives my hair instant hydration and nourishment, without the weight. Not to mention how great it makes my hair smell! Since using the John Frieda shampoo and conditioner, my hair has not felt this healthy in a long time and it's even growing! I've found my hair looking more vibrant as well, which is really hard when you have coloured copper hair. Would definitely recommend you try this if you have coloured hair.”

“I’ve been loving this conditioner. It really helps in smoothing out my hair and prevents knots when wet, which is a must-have considering I have recently bleached my hair. I actually did notice a difference in the level of nourishment my hair had prior to using this and didn’t have to use much in order to coat all my hair which is also a massive plus. I didn’t notice a major difference in terms of emphasising the colour of my hair or assisting with the vibrancy, but I think the nourishing qualities make the product worth it and even after blow drying my hair remained feeling super soft and healthy. I feel like I can attribute it mostly to this conditioner as I can literally feel it working and my hair softening as the conditioner stays on after a few minutes.”
