My hair’s been good to me; it’s quite low-maintenance. I wish I could say I’m good to it. Lately, I’ve been lazy and sleeping in later than usual. So to cut steps, I don’t blow dry my hair before I go. Not a bad thing if it were summer, but to go out in freezing cold temperatures is really bad on wet hair. It causes breakage and more flyaways than an airport.

This is why I love the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme. It’s stood by me in summer and winter, in hot and cold temps, in dry and humid days, and on good and bad hair days. So it’s about time I shine a little spotlight on it!

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Finishing Creme Review


So simple. You see the dab in the picture? I only use 2 of those for all of my hair, and I have really thick and long hair. That’s how great the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Finishing Creme is!

All you have to do is rub the product in your hands to spread it out. Then smooth it into your hair – I usually start from the bottom where the hair’s the driest before moving onto the roots. You can go over the dry spots with more product if your hair’s extra parched.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Flawless Finishing Creme gives you a lot of room to work with. All finishing creams can leave you with a greasy feeling if you apply too much. But I’ve never experienced that at all with John Frieda, even when I accidentally squeeze too much outta the tube.


It has a thick, but whipped texture to it. It’s really easy to spread into my hair, but the stiffer consistency makes me feel like I’m actually coating each strand for protection throughout the day. I quite like it!


Wow. If I don’t use a finishing cream, my hair can look like a puffball – no joke. But this finishing cream totally tames my hair, making it look super sleek. And this cream has worked in all conditions, seasons and weathers for me. It says to apply it on dry hair, but it smoothes out flyaways and prevents frizz throughout the entire day even when I use it on wet hair!

Comparison to TRESemme

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Cream isn’t the only cream that I’ve tried. I also have the one by TRESemme because it’s cheaper. However, I like JF a lot more.

Why? First, the smell. The TRESemme anti-frizz cream smells like salon stink to me, but the John Frieda one has a sweet fragrance to it. Definitely more appealing. Also, the TRESemme cream leaves my hands feeling greasy and yucky after I apply it into my hair.

And lastly, the TRESemme cream doesn’t work as well on wet hair, which is what I need since I’m too lazy to blow dry!


  • Kao Brands does not test on animals
  • Contains UV sunscreen
  • Don’t need a lot
  • Smoothes flyaways for the whole day
  • Light scent

  • More expensive compared to other drugstore brands

Final Verdict: 9.5/10

If I had a beauty-product arsenal, this finishing cream by John Frieda would definitely be in it. I don’t want to imagine all the Bad Hair Days I would have if someone took away my John Frieda!

Is there another finishing cream that you swear by? What do you think of this JF one? Share your thoughts!

      Hi Amber!

      I’d like to say I’m faithful, but I’ve cheated with TRESemme for a bit because it’s a tad cheaper. But now I’m back with Mr. Frieda!
