I bought this awhile back when there was a sale on Garnier Fructis products at CVS (Which happens quite often). Since I dye/bleach/swim in chlorinated pools I have to do a lot to keep my hair healthy. So I decided to give this a shot to keep my dry and damaged hair healthy.
I picked this up because it has 3 different oils in it that are great for keeping hair heathy.
It claims: 3 Fruit oils for triple nutrition
- Olive Oil - Nourishes the core
- Avocado Oil Nourishes and softens the middle layer
- Shea Oil Nourishes and smoothes the surface
- Has apricot seeds for extra nourishment
Okay now here's what I thought:
It smells okay; just like any other product they have out - fruity, citrusy, but has a almost chemical undertone to it.
Now the texture is what is weird. I'm not a fan at all! It has a thick consistency, but a little rough too because of the apricot seeds in it. It feels super weird in my hair while I'm in the shower. The apricot seeds do nothing for your hair, useless.
The first I few times I used it I put the product in from root to tip. My hair was extremely greasy all day. So I then decided to try it just on my roots which works a lot better. My roots weren't greasy and I got the tips the moisture it needed.
Now did it really work? I've been using it for about 3 weeks on my ends only. I don't see a change in my hair, but it doesn't seem to get any worse. I think I would rather spend the extra money to get a better hair mask that I can use all over my hair and not just at the ends.
VERDICT: Pass I would not buy this again. It's a waste of money in my opinion. Makes my roots greasy and did not improve the health of my hair. For $6.50 it's useless. But it might for well for those who have thick, and/or curly hair. For thin, fine hair this is a flop.
