Whether you walk out with a glossy blowout or a chic new cut, there’s nothing quite like the way you feel after leaving the salon. But re-creating those same polished, Instagram-worthy results at home can be a challenge, to say the least. We’ll just say it: Hairstyling is a true art form, and few of us are #blessed with the eye (or the hand-eye coordination) the craft requires.
Still, there is hope: We’ve found that with the right mix of products—and a bit of patience—you can get that much closer to fresh-from-the-salon strands, no matter your hair type. And it all starts with your shampoo-and-conditioner duo of choice. Whether you’re looking after your bright-blonde locks or your natural curls, our roundup of John Frieda Canada favourites has an option that’ll give your hair all the attention and care it needs in between appointments.

Before: Pre-washing, hair is fine and looking a little limp.
After: Hair gets a volume boost thanks to John Frieda® Luxurious Volume® Core Restore® Shampoo ($13) and Conditioner ($13). With Protein-Strength Complex, Core Restore fortifies and transforms the hair from the inside out. Strands feel soft and look full, without feeling sticky or coated in product.
Before: A couple of weeks after a salon visit, hair colour looks slightly washed out.
After: Hair comes back to life again after washing with John Frieda® Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo ($13) and Conditioner ($13). Infused with citrus and chamomile, the shampoo gradually lightens hair without drying it out, while the conditioner adds moisture and softness.
Before: Hair looks a bit dull, and the colour is faded.
After: Washing with John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper® Colour Deepening Shampoo ($13) and Conditioner ($13) adds richness to hair colour. The semi-permanent shampoo with cocoa and evening primrose oil gradually deepens brown tones between salon visits.
Before: Hair is a bit unruly and hard to manage, and high humidity only adds to the difficulty.
After: Hair looks instantly smoother with help from John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Forever Smooth Frizz Immunity Shampoo ($13) and Conditioner ($13). The duo’s Frizz Immunity Complex and pure coconut oil moisturize and penetrate the hair fibre, helping build resistance to frizz over time.
