Last month, NaturallyCurly hosted a photo upload contest and winners were chosen based on their worst frizzy hair moments. Now, being chosen as a winner due to your frizzy locks may not seem like a real prize, but each winner received the entire John Frieda line, aimed at helping them to tame and moisturize their curls.

We caught up with a few of those winners to find out how their curly hair stories were coming along, what the line did for them, and how their locks look now. These women’s stories prove that no matter your hair issue, it is never too late to get your curls some “hairapy” and turn things around!

Juliana’s Perfect Day

My experience with John Frieda products began in the most important day of my life. Seems like it was the most important for me and for my hair! I was going to get married by the beach, and I was so wanting to have naturally curly, but not frizzy hair. The ocean breeze and the wind were enough to get me concerned about how my hair would look during the wedding.


I told my hairdresser about all this issues, and, incredibly, I received the best haircut—very well defined curls with volume and no frizz. The style lasted for the entire evening, plus I received lots and lots of compliments.

I had to go back to ask what my stylist did. That was when he told me about the John Frieda line that included the perfect combination of Clearly Defined Style-Holding Gel, Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème and the final touch, which was the Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray.

Since then, I’ve been a fan of John Frieda products and it has been present in my life at so many different times.

One year in particular, 2010, was a hard year for me. I tried to revive my natural curls from a Brazilian Keratin Treatment I had done. The Frizz Ease line really helped me in the process of asking my hair for forgiveness.

What Juliana Used

  • Clearly Defined Style-Holding Gel
  •  Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème
  • Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray
  • Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula
  • Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray
  • Straight Fixation Smoothing Crème
  • Take Charge Curl-Boosting Mousse
  • Dream Curls Curl-Perfecting Spray

Right after I had the keratin treatment, though, I was forced to straighten my hair for special occasions, as my curls weren’t ready to come out yet. Naturally, I didn’t want to damage my hair even further, so the Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula, the Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray and the Straight Fixation Smoothing Crème played a role at this time.

After three months of really taking care of my hair with all natural products, a wavy, nice texture started to appear. At this time, I really had fun with the Take Charge Curl-Boosting Mousse that always gave me a fresh and natural look.

Nowadays, my curls are completely back and I am still relying on John Frieda products as part of my naturally curly regimen. The dream curls curl-perfecting spray is definitely a must have. Between that and all the good stuff I’ve received from CurlMart, not to mention winning he “Frizz-Ease Contest,” I feel like I hit the jackpot! I received so many products that I love and I have so much more to try!
