Garnier Fructis Citrus Mint Product Review

Remember I mentioned this earlier? Let’s talk about it some more.

My roommate was using this for a while, but stopped because her boyfriend didn’t like the minty smell, so she had me help her finish off the bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Personally, I am in love with the smell, as is my boyfriend. I had to stop using Garnier’s products a while ago because they were too damaging to my hair. But what I didn’t know until just recently was that they removed the silicones and parabens! I was stoked.

This product is great for oily hair, to begin with. I have a lot of trouble with oily everything, my body just hates me! Even though I shampoo twice every time I shower, I can feel almost all of the oils gone from my hair after just one, and it immediately feels lighter than with any shampoo I have ever used. After the second my hair is silky smooth and honestly, I don’t need to use conditioner, but I do anyway! The conditioner makes my hair super soft and amazingly, after a day or two, my hair doesn’t look greasy. I can’t use conditioners due to the fact that by day two my hair looks like a grease factory, so I used to substitute for oils or serums.

My boyfriend used just the shampoo and his thick, coarse hair was so soft when it dried. Honestly, I’ve never used a shampoo that feels quite like this. The smell is invigorating and is a great way to wake yourself up in the morning, and boy does it last! My hair looks and feels soft and shiny and I haven’t had frizz problems like I usually do when my hair grows out.

To sum it all up, I’m a pretty happy camper. When you consider cost and result, it is definitely worth your time and money. It works better than a lot of natural products that I have used and I love it even more than the Green shampoo they had released a few years ago, which didn’t give me remotely similar results. I’m sold, and I’m going to be using this from now on!


Product Review – Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition

I started using this product about a month ago. I bought it so I could stop using conditioner on my hair, since it leaves my hair feeling heavy, flat and rather oily.

I went through my usual shower routine, skipping conditioner, and towel dried my hair when I got out. Following the instructions on the back of the bottle, I simply shook the mixture together, sprayed over my hair (three squirts was enough for me) and passed a comb through it.

And boy, do I mean passed.

My hair is tangly, wavy, and overall annoying. I usually have to tug knots out with a comb or a brush after a shower, even when I used a deep conditioner. But three sprays of this product made my hair smooth and tangle free! I was very impressed.

Then, the moment of truth. I let my hair air dry (this product was appealing because I didn’t have to blow dry to activate) and examined it thoroughly. While most oils and deep conditioners leave my hair looking greasy at the roots, or rather flat, or greasy to the touch, this one absorbed right in and made my hair smooth and shiny. Flyaways were mostly tamed, there was a distinct shine that wasn’t there the last time I had showered.

I’ve used this product every time I get out of the shower since then, and I have only used conditioner once when I coloured my hair again. Overall, I’m very pleased with the results. As someone with greasy, problematic hair, I’m pleased to report that I can now wash it every other day without it looking flat and gross! My hair is healthier and much easier to manage.

My rating would have to be 4.5/5

  • No blow drying needed
  • Not greasy
  • Lightweight
  • Inexpensive
  • Long-lasting
