Hair Chit Chat: Garnier Fructis =)

Hi dolls, I have been meaning to buy new shampoo and conditioner since I am almost out. I have been using Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner. I usually order my hair products from online lol, but I have gotten my mom into the hair game and she actually chucked out her suave...( nothing against suave) and loves the catwalk line. 80 percent of the time the shampoo/cond. duo I get is Bedhead. If not Bedhead, at least Tigi. And I get the one with the big pumps...I am going to buy Dumb Blonde, works great! In the mean time, found my self wandering around the drugstore trying to find a substitute and remembered an old favorite I used to use when I was like in 6th grade haha...Garnier Fructis. The products were on sale for 3 for 9.99, so I bought three of them. I bought...

1. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo

2. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Conditioner

3. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Leave in Conditioner

I remembered why I loved this line sooo much! Melted the knots right out of my hair. The smell is a strong fruity smell, which can get kind of sickning after awhile lol..why I haven't used it in ages..but when you revisit this is sooooo yummy.. I feel like this conditioner does make my hair stronger...and it penetrates into the hair instead of laying on the shaft like Pantene...

I'm still going to order my Bed Head shampoos with the lovely salon pump, but this is a bangin back up!
What do you think of Garnier Fructis?? I'm honestly curious. Leave your two cents..and don't forget to mention hair type/texture as well! Have a great day!

  1. Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner smell so good but they make my forehead breakout!;C
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. Aww it never worked for me :( it just goes to show one person's holy grail can be another's product hell! x

  3. @ Marie, really? I've never heard of such, I am going to have to watch my skin, and if I break out on my forehead I'll know what its from.

    @ Jo, lol yeah I hate when that happens. Like how everyone keeps raving about Moroccan Oil, and I can't stand it!

  4. i also can't stand the overpowering fruity smell!

  5. Hey girly, I just saw your comment you left for me. I know it's hella hard to restrict yourself! but take it one step at a time, cute out something for 2 weeks and add something to cut out for another 2 weeks. I barely lost like 5 pounds... but I'm sure you'll get there =) Hope all is well with you!

  6. I love the triple nutrition conditioner. makes my hair really soft and mosturized!

  7. @ Jenny, yeah it gives me a headache lol, i have to watch out if i buy their hair products because styling stuff lasts forever for me.

    @ Krystyles, thank you soo much for the support, the funny part is I was eating a donut when I read your comment. Gotta kick the habit.

    @ Brown Sugar Babe, me too! it makes my curly hair look good without putting like 5 gels and mousses in it.

  8. I was never a huge fan of Garnier but have always loved Herbal Essences... But I totally agree that smells just make me sick!

    About what Marie said- the reason it could be breaking you out real bad is that a lot of the drugstore conditioners (and even salon brand) contain tons of ingredients that are made of silicone and it basically coats your hair (and your skin if you get it on there) in a thick layer kind of like saran wrap, not allowing any moisture to get in (and keeping anything in your pores on your face locked in) and actually dries out your hair. Yuck. Make sure you keep an eye out for that! ;)

    Hope you're having a great weekend Jenna!!! :)
