My hair has always hated me, but even more so since my surgery. It's dry, it's brittle, and it's rough. It doesn't help that my hair has always been fine and thin - and it tangles something awful on a good day, never mind the bad days!
Created for dry and damaged hair just like mine, the new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner has three weightless nutritive fruit oils - olive, avocado, and shea - that nourishes hair to the core and helps it shine. It's also packaged in more environmentally friendly bottles that contains PET and 30% recycled plastic. Because they are 10% lighter, they save over 125 tons of plastic annually! (Of course, I'd love 100% recycled plastic, but I realize companies have to make baby steps) Garnier Fructis has also partnered with TerraCycle for the Beauty Brigade to help keep beauty products out of the landfills (Click here for more information!)
The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottles was the smell - it smelled wonderful! Sort of fruit-y! DH teases me about wanting my hair to smell like a fruit salad (LOL), but I like products that don't smell like they are full of chemicals. Speaking of chemicals, the shampoo does have my nemesis Propylene Glycol, which returning readers will know I avoid in our home as much as possible. (boo!) It also had a lot of chemicals I could barely pronounce. :(
The shampoo lathered well, and was fairly easy to rinse out. Although the conditioner bottle doesn't say anything about it, I left it on my hair for about five minutes before rinsing it out. Since my hair has issues, I want to get those nourishing oils in them as much as possible! When it came time to detangle my hair, my comb slipped through it rather easily - which is definitely a plus. Some brands of conditioner do nothing to help me get the tangles out, while this new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Conditioner did wonders for those knots.
After using it for a week, I am definitely pleased with the performance of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner. For my dry hair, it's helping it seem a little more stronger and a little less fly-aways. A 13 ounce bottle of shampoo or conditioner retails for around $3.99, and you can purchase it at your favorite drug store or mass retailer. If you're interested in trying it out yourself, there's a printable coupon out to save you $1.25.
