Summer humididy will send my hair in every direction know to man and finding **John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel **made last summer so much easier on my hair.  It's not heavy, doesn't weigh my hair down, but it works.  Ends the frizzies that I would fight from rain and humidty and replaced it with hair that stayed where I put it.  Adds shine and body to hair.  A definite must if you live in a high humidity area.

     I purchased the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Defined Style Holding Gel originally because I needed something REALLY good to hold some curls I was styling in my daughter's hair as she was to be a flower girl in a wedding.  It did work really great for this purpose.  I used alot as I did not want her hair coming undone in a hurricane and coupled with hair spray, worked WONDERFULLY!  The problem came when I wanted to use up the contents under normal circumstances.

     I have slightly wavy hair and started working in some of this gel to try to bring out my curls and have them stay instead of going flat as the day went on.  It had great hold, but I fould the product did not blend into my hair too well.   I actually found some small, dried, gel gobs in my hair.  Really disgusting, actually and not what you want to see in your hair much less other people.  I solved this somewhat by squeesing out a little at first and throwing it away and then using the product on my hair.  I don't like to throw away product, but I don't like gobs in my hair more.

A great gel to go with the serum

By 

from USA

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

I have long, naturally curly hair, and my regular styling regimen involves combining an anti-frizz product with a styling gel. I've been using John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum for ages, so when my neighborhood drugstore had a "buy two, get one free" offer on Frizz-Ease products, I decided to give John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel a shot.

I was hoping that I could skip a step and just use the gel, but that didn't work well for me, because it meant using gel all over, which weighed my hair down. When I went back to using the serum all over and gel just where I get the most flyaways (near my face and ears), I was very pleased with the results. My hair felt soft, flexible and frizz-free.

The main reason I don't use John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel more often is that it's a bit more expensive than other good products. Also, it's fairly thick gel, which makes it a bit difficult to dispense and to apply evenly (but the latter problem can be solved by thinning it with water or leave-in conditioner).

A staple in my styling products wardrobe!

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

As someone with naturally wavy hair I’ve found that John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style-Holding Gel works great for scrunching. The gel adds strong holding volume and curl to my hair without making it feel sticky or crunchy. I love how it works equally as well right after showering as on dry or damp hair. In my experience this is a great product!

Best non-salon brand. EXCELLENT for natural curls!

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

Over thirty years of dealing with naturally curly hair, means that I have tried EVERYTHING. This gel works better than anything I have ever used. I am pretty picky about hair products (almost always use salon brands such Redken or Pureology for shampoo/conditioner), but nothing in the salon holds a candle to JF gel. Bonus: There are coupons in the Sunday paper every month or so, and if you sign up for their mailing list, you will get other offers/coupons in your email!

A gel that works well on curly hair!

By 

from Lakeland, FL

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

I love my curls and like to take good care of them. This is easier said than done! But with the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel, my unruly curls can be tamed! It doesn't leave a nasty residue and doesn't make your hair crunchy and stiff like most gels do. This gel is specifically meant for curly hair, so it takes care of the frizz (even with super humid weather) while still leaving it bouncy and defined. My hair was soft and added a bit of shine as well. The price is great, which is an added bonus. I was still able to comb or massage throughout my hair once applied and did not stick in place. There's no flakiness or stickiness. The bottle itself is nice since it's clear, so you can see when you're running out. It's an alcohol-free and non-drying product which is good because curly hair generally tends to be very dry already on its own. From the myriad of products I've tried, this is one that I'd recommend to others and would use again.

Frizz Ease works for some, but not for me.

By 

from Waddell, AZ

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

Many of my friends have used this in the past and recommended it to me. They all said it worked wonders and perfectly styled their hair, but when I tried using into mine it did not help much. I have a lot of layers and it just stuck them together and gave it a weird, hard curl. I've tried it many times and it is not for me. I think it would work if I had less curly hair and less layers, but for people with very thick hair it is not a good product.

This Holding gel held my hair

By 

from Hastings, NE

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

I really, really liked this holding gel. When I'd wake up with bad hair (pretty much every morning,) I'd go take a shower, but when that wasn't enough I'd break out my secret weapon. Bad hair was no match for Frizz-ease. Even I, who have really thick hair, managed to get this stuff to work for me. The other thing I liked was that it fit for pretty much any situation. I could put this gel in my hair and go practically anywhere. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the celebrities on the red carpet used Frizz-Ease products. It's so simple,and it is pretty affordable. I mean, it costs more than other gels I've tried, but it also works better than other products, so I'd say it was worth it. I also really like the fact that it doesn't stick to my hands. That has always been a big pet peeve of mine: products that think they have to act like glue. Holding gel can hold your hair without having to stick to your hands too.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel

By 

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel is great for frizzy or hard to manage hair. This product works well. The John Frieda Frizz-Ease line has a variety of products including serums, gels and conditioners. I tried this one recently.

The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel has a nice fragrance. The product was generally easy to apply. Your hair will look more shiny and the frizz will be reduced. This is not perfect. If your hair is really dry or damaged, even this product will not be enough to control it. 

The John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel comes in 3.8 ounces. I think this is not enough. Especially if you have longer hair or a lot of frizz. The price is not great either. It is cheaper than many salon brands but still more expensive than some store products. Sometimes the pump on this bottle does not work and gets stuck. It happens once in a while.

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

this gel is great on my natural hair.  i use this on my wash and go's and it always leaves my curls defined with little to no frizz! if you dont like your hair to be hard and crunchy i suggest that you dont use alot of the product or that you use it with a oil or some kind of moisturizer under it.

John Freida Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel Works!

By 

from Shelby, NC

Comments about John Frieda Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel:

I am going to say a mouth full here, but believe me that what I am going to say is the ONLY con regarding this product. READY? John Freida Frizz-Ease Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel. Yes, the NAME of the product, not the product itself. That's a looonnng name. LOL. But I have really come to love the name. My daughter introduced me to this product. She said all her friends were using it. I didn't care...I didn't want to use what her friends were using unless it was really good. She kept insisting, so to appease her, I tried it. And, believe me, I'll always be a customer of this product. It is a styling gel that one can't do without. No more using any other hair styling product. This is something that will eliminate all your other styling products. This is all you need. It controls frizz, makes one's hair shiny and natufral looking. It's easy to use as well. It's not sticky, does not weigh hair down, and it even holds hair the way you want it even during windy days. Who wouldn't want to use this product every day??
