About this deal

John Frieda’s latest game changer comes in the guise of the new Defy Grey haircare system. A range of home use products comprising a shampoo, conditioner and blow dry foam, Defy Grey promises noticeable results after a single wash, thanks to its revolutionary blending coffee extract formula. Aqua, Glycerin, Dihydroxyacetone, Alcohol Denat., Decyl Glucoside, Ceteareth-25, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Parfum, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Acid Violet 43, Acid Orange 7, Acid Yellow 3, Erthyrulose, Curry Red, Coffea Arabica Seed Extract, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Limonene. I can’t really comment on these products individually about the effects as I did use them in combination with each other so will give my opinion at the end of this review.

Amazingly it didn’t take long for me to notice a change in my look – definitely after the second wash, my greys were no longer silver but warming to a soft caramel. The sharp metallic glint that best resembled sparkly lametta on a Christmas tree was now gone; in its place, an interesting colour palette of textured browns.For those who are also looking for a low-commitment solution to covering their first greys, the new Defy Grey range is a hassle-free way of helping to blend away whites on brunette hair with less than 50% grey. The clever combination of coffee extract and GreyBlend technology works by depositing a natural-looking brown tone on the pigment-less strands of hair, which then blends with your own shade from the first use. In regards to the Grey hairs it has blended in quite a few of them although they are not completely gone. I did have quite a few very white hairs at the front that are not as prominent now but they are still white. I might try the John Frieda shampoo too, sounds good, does it make much change to the ‘natural’ hair colour?

It’s difficult to tell whether the products have worked when you’re looking at wet hair, so I had to dry it off to see properly. I could see some obvious greys still, around my ears mainly and then some wispy strands along the top. I guessed I probably didn’t apply it so well or washed it away in the process. But interestingly, it seemed not to look so grey. It wasn’t an obvious change, but I was sure something was different. Im just not sure the blonde shade does much for my complexion, plus I'm really interested to see what my grey looks like! I don’t wash my hair all that much – once a week, or twice if I’m particularly enthusiastic about my self care. So over the following month (and several washes) my regular hair care was replaced by the Defy Grey. I’ve been dyeing my hair – mainly to keep on top of my greys – for more years than I can remember. I was somewhere in my late teens when hair colouring was done for fun and feeling ‘grown up’ rather than necessity. But recently I grew tired of the upkeep in maintaining a look of youthfulness and perfection I was far from feeling, so I gave up on the dye.This John Frieda Defy Grey Brunette Blending Blow Dry Foam gradually infuses brunette tones to blend away first greys. Around the temple area I had quite a few grey silvery strands that are starting to blend in a little better. I suspect with continued use they may blend in even more. I’m not going to lie though, it isn’t a miracle worker, nothing compares to actually dying your hair.

The information again is the same for this product. The directions for this product are as follows :- After I first wrote about my grey hair quandary, I chanced upon a new haircare range by John Frieda, and it was quite the miraculous discovery. Torn between colouring and not colouring, I realised there was a mid ground solution I needed to give a go, and to my surprise the lovely folk at John Frieda agreed. I do think this will be great to prolong my dyed hair for a few more weeks in-between dyings and I will continue to use it . It does leave my hair looking healthier and more manageable. I can say that the shampoo itself doesn’t have much of a scent at all, the consistency is quite liquidy and is a shimmery brown in colour. It lathers well once applied to wet hair. It is recommended to leave on for 5 minutes before washing out upon first use, and then 3 minutes for each consecutive use. I have tried calling John Frieda who have sworn up and down it doesn't dye the hair and will wash out eventually and they have also sent me out some Violet Crush shampoo to try and tone the yellow down and that has done nothing either.The reason I'm nervous is not liking the results of some highlights/lowlights I had done, don't know which, just for a change. I asked for a caramel shade, thinking it would be a lighter shade of brown than my own, but it just looked red. We tried again next time after the first grew out, with another shade, but that looked red to me, too. I hated it and it really didn't suit me. I grew to quite like this new ‘streaked’ look. It wasn’t a perfect set of highlights but I was free of the grey. It just probably wasn’t the drastic change I was imagining. For some reason, I dreamt the grey would turn chocolatey, and that the whitened patches would reappear in full colour, but it didn’t quite work that way. While the grey had warmed to a softer shade of milky coffee, I craved a more vibrant result. I still had the pale hair around my ears, the faded strands beneath my ponytail and the streaks running from my crown. I just didn’t feel polished.

This John Frieda Defy Grey Brunette Blending Shampoo gradually blends away first greys into brunette tones. With Coffee Extract & GreyBlend™ Technology. I don't want all over colour and I definitely don't want to go darker. I'm quite happy with my natural colour but I dont suppose my stylist will be able to match it exactly. I guess I'd like some lights dotted around, maybe a shade or two lighter than my own, to blend in as much of the grey as possible. I don't want it to be glaringly noticeable as it grows out, either. I'm not brave! I've got to 50 without feeling the need to colour my hair and I'm really quite apprehensive. Whether or not to go grey is, of course, a deeply personal and emotional choice; one that can be defining in how we see ourselves ageing. So when it begins to happen, the most important thing is that we feel empowered to have a choice; to be armed with the right information on how to get the best out of our hair, whatever the shade. And then to be prepared for compliments incoming… Both my parents, despite being dark-haired we never really that grey. Neither of them ever used hair dye and still only had a few greys. Their deaths certainly gave me a few of my own, but I’m still at that stage where I can pull out the odd one and get away with it.We all have goals in life don’t we. One of my more trivial goals was to get to 40 without dying my hair. I made it, and I was thrilled about that, but I still didn’t really want to get into that routine of having to dye my hair.
