Frequently Asked Questions about Products

Brilliant Brunette® Hair Care

Are Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® and Radiant Red products only for those who colour their hair?
No. The professionals behind John Frieda® Hair Care recognise that blondes, brunettes and redheads, whether natural or colour-treated, have different care and texture needs. John Frieda® Hair Care identifies the different hair colour needs and addresses the unique ways in which each hair shade transforms light into a powerful colour and shine maximizing tool.
If I have colour-treated, frizzy hair, should I use products from the Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® or Radiant Red lines, or from the Frizz Ease line?

Choosing the appropriate product range to fit your hair-care needs will depend on what your needs are. If you have frizzy, colour-treated hair and your primary goal is to preserve your colour and increase shine, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner from either the Sheer Blonde®, Brilliant Brunette® or Radiant Red range. However, if your primary need deals with eliminating your frizz, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner from the Frizz Ease range.

Also note that products from John Frieda® Hair Care can be combined to create a regime that is customised to your specific hair-care needs. If your hair is colour-treated and frizzy, you may wish to shampoo and condition with the Sheer Blonde® or Brilliant Brunette® shampoos and conditioners in order to rehydrate and revitalize damaged, dry hair. To specifically target frizz, use the Frizz Ease Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula on wet or dry hair as it not only helps prevent frizz, but also protects against heat-styling & UV exposure. 

Will this product colour my hair?
No, none of the Brilliant Brunette® shampoos, conditioners or stylers deposit any colour. Instead, they work to make hair richer, radiant and more dimensional with each use. Formulated with exclusive Light Enhancers™ to bring out natural highlights, Brilliant Brunette® products make unique brunette tones come alive with vibrancy and incredible lustre, without depositing any colour.
Will this product darken my brunette?
No, none of the Brilliant Brunette® shampoos, conditioners or stylers will noticeably darken your hair. The Brilliant Brunette® shampoos and conditioners polish and perfect each hair strand to create an ultra-smooth, highly reflective surface that shimmers like satin. With continual use, hair comes alive with multi-dimensional richness without darkening or dulling your natural or colour-treated hair.
Can I use the Brilliant Brunette® products on my black hair?
Absolutely. Brilliant Brunette® products work perfectly to bring out the natural beauty of black hair. The same way as it works with brunette, our formulas with exclusive Light Enhancers™, polish and perfect each hair strand to create an ultra-smooth, highly reflective surface that shimmers like satin. It is recommended that if you have black hair, you use Brilliant Brunette® Multi Tone Revealing Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner. With daily use, this will rid hair of its dullness and add natural lustre for intense, mirror-like shine.
Can I use the Brilliant Brunette® products on my grey hair?
Yes, Brilliant Brunette® products can be used on grey or greying hair. The same way as it works with brunette, our formulas with exclusive Light Enhancers™ cleanse and perfect each strand by washing away dullness. Immediately, your grey hair will come alive with extraordinary lustre and shine. However, grey hair is most similar to blonde hair as it is naturally transparent, which means that buildup will immediately show, making the hair look brassy or dull. The Sheer Blonde® range removes the buildup that comes from the calcium and phosphorus in our water, so that your naturally transparent hair glistens and shines. It is recommended that if you have grey hair, you use Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner for Lighter Shades. The moisturising agents in these products help to replenish dry hair with extra moisture, and work to restore dazzling highlights.
How can I achieve ultimate-shine without leaving my hair greasy?
To achieve ultimate-shine you should use Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Both are formulated with a Shine-Infusing Complex that lightly coats the hair for dramatically increased shine.  Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine can be used daily and is ideal for all shades of natural, colour-treated or highlighted brunette hair.  To seal in shine use Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shine Shock® Perfecting Glosser. This lightweight crème delivers exquisite and highly reflective shine, while instantly smoothing flyaways and sealing split ends.
How can I achieve sleek, straight styles that truly last?
For sleek, straight styles that truly last, it is recommended that you start with Brilliant Brunette® Multi Tone Revealing Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner. These products work by restoring hair’s softness and moisture often lost during the styling process. Then, while hair is still damp, squeeze a small amount of Brilliant Brunette® Liquid Shine Shine Shock® Perfecting Glosser and distribute evenly through hair. (This lightweight formula is infused with silk protein.) Next, blow dry hair and, if desired, use straighteners for extremely straight styles.
