Most Helpful Positive Review Flat All Day
With naturally wavy, poofy, hair, it is hard to hold at style that is 'just' right for my face.
Especially when my face looks best with a flat style. Straight Fixation Styling Creme keeps my bangs straight around my forehead. My hair is soft and loose, not stiff. And, I can give my bangs a lift with a flat iron and some hairspray. I'm not a model, nor young, so don't judge too harshly. That said, my hair normally wants to stand straight up, or curls with the least bit of moisture. This styling product is the bomb to hold curls in check. And, I never stop receiving compliments on my cut.
I've been using Straight Fixation Styling Creme for over 4 years. If they ever discontinue it...Arghhhh!!! ...I'm sure John Frieda won't let us down.
Most Helpful Critical Review Left looking for better
I use about a dime-size of this product every morning before I blow-dry my pin-straight hair. I like that it defrizzes and smooths my hair--however, if I put a little too much product near my roots it leaves them looking greasy and stick together like I have gel in it. My hair is typically not greasy or oily and is extremely healthy.

Helped the Frizz but really oily
britishtea from undisclosed
I have fine thin hair that can also be frizzy - its hard to find a product that works. This did tame my frizz at the expense of having my thin hair look very oily
Best mousse ever!

I have tried so many brands of mousse, and this is the best.
Curly hair care
mallorya15 from undisclosed
I have very thick curly and dry and frizzy hair and its hard for me to find products that will actually work for my kind of hair whether it be shampoos or hair sprays and gels etc from this brand it gets the job done. Makes my hair look great all day. Affordable and great quality anyone with similar hair should really give this a try

Great product and at great price! Helps with freeze! Only con is be careful how much you use, too much can weigh your hair down. Works well will all hair types, mine is thin hair so if not careful it does weigh my hair down. Overall I am happy with this product! Leaves hair soft and glossy. Recommended!
this is good stuff!

I love this stuff so much I use it every time I get out of the shower and I know I am going to fix my hair. It is my go to hair product.
love this product!
ambere51 from undisclosed
Great product! I have thick, coarse, frizzy, somewhat wavy hair. I shower at night & let it air dry. When i wake up in the morning my hair is so frizzy. Even when Im in a hurry & just want to pull it back into a ponytail I still have to get the straightener out to smooth over my rots at my part & along my face. If i apply a generous amount of this to my hair after showering while its wet then when i wake in the morning my roots/fly-aways are smooth & dont need straightened. It doesnt really straighten my hair any, but does tame down some of my frizz to make my waves look better!
cmardis from Hobbs, NM
I have very coarse curly hair. I had run out of my product for when I straighten it so I purchased this product. It did help a little with the frizz but definitely not as well as my current product. I was very happy though with being able to purchase through the covid pandemic since I wasnt able to get my regular product. I think maybe if I used something different it may of helped with my hair better.
Stefanie from Sacramento CA
Its sticky. Has no slip. My hair is still frizzy. Clearly not made for curly hair. Maybe wavy girls. Gave it to my husband to use on his straight hair. He didn't seem to have any problems with it except the non eco friendly package.
Sana from chicago, il
I thought this just might work for my thick, coarse, wavy hair but it did not. It left my hair stiff and it didn't keep the frizz at bay. Not worth it for my type of hair.
Only thing that helps my granddaughters hair
Tagg985 from New Orleans
My 3 granddaughters have long curly hair and this is the only thing that helps keep the fizz out, I buy it all the time for them

I have been using this product for many many years and for some reason I can't find it in any of the stores in Canada now. I really hope that this product has not been discontinued as it's amazing!

Feels he y and sticky
Leaves Hair Stiff
Head of curls from Los Alamitos Ca
Read somewhere that this product leaves hair feeling natural when dry. This is not the case. My hair was stiff and crunchy when the product finally dried. Would not have purchased had I known that this would be the end result and for this reason I would not recommend this product.
won't buy this product again
tred from Reno Nv
Not something that I would buy again, it takes to much product and doesn't do that great of a job
Not really worth it
Steph from New York
I have 2b/2c hair and frizz ease doesn't seem to do anything except make my hair poof and stretch out my waves. Plus, it in no way prevents frizz
Very Lightweight Hold
Britc from Dallas
I have fine curly hair and live in a humid environment, so my hair is frizzy unless I use product. This stuff does not have a strong hold, it's very lightweight. Other mousse products I've used (that I'm comparing to): Pantene curl mousse and Curl Talk by Not Your Mother's. These both have a stronger hold that create a "crunch" when product and hair is dry ("scrunch the crunch" to curlies out there who know- it's a good thing). This product does not create a "crunch" for curls. This product might be okay for dry climates that don't have a lot of moisture in the air, or for those who want a "barely there" hold/feel.
Will never buy again
CWare from Texas
The worst smell!! I cannot believe how terrible this smells!
Hold was okay and foxy curls is better.
Maybe I needed to use more, I just could not get over the gross smell.
Best blow out cream EVER
Jimena from Seattle
When I used to blow out my hair I would always have to straighten it the next day eve though I used blow out cream bc my hair is frizzy and curly. When I used this product it made it look like if I'd straighten my hair but actually I blowed dried it, it's complete flat like a straight iron would do but less heat:)
tried and true!!
Irish Lass from Wall NJ
this has been around for years and I have tried others but always come back to John Frieda... it really is the best. the price is right. I shampoo every 3rd day and this stuff keeps the frizz at bay the whole time.
I have bought products that cost 2x + as much and results were not better.
I'm buying this product all the time
Hope1956 from Indiana
This product is awesome ...
Not what it claims to do
yessy from Santa Monica
I was hoping This product would revive my curls but it didn't do much for my hair at all other than control the frizz a little. I have wavy/curly hair but this product did not hold or define my curls in any way and I ended up returning it.
Ladyloca from Henderson, NV
This mousse stinks, fries my hair out and feels heavy. Mind you, I don't use too much product. My hair felt straw like and I washed it out right away. This is going back to the store.
Great Results, Terrible Smell
Experimenting from Cypress, TX
This mousse is one of the very few that I've tried, but it works wonderfully. I have thick hair that's wavy and curls at the ends and this mousse did a wonder job of defining the curls. Only problem is that it smells horrible and overpowers and scent your shampoo might have, regardless of how strong it is. Fortunately the smell goes away, just do yourself a favor and don't leave the house right away.
