Haute Kutir's Experience
Hair type: dark brown, wavy, normal to dry, Below shoulder length.
I have a history of not so good experience using Garnier hair care products. So when I received these free samples from Garnier PR team, I was unsure of whether trying it or no. I was suppose to attend Lakme Fashion Week and last thing I wanted to risk was my hair, hence I refrained trying it that time and reserved it later for a relatively chilled day when I may not have to attend many functions.
My new shampoo from L'Oreal Professional though managed my hair well but was not helping dandruff which were on high crawl. My scalp was very dry and itchy and I wanted to apply some raw curd to see if that settles my woe. So one of these weekend, in bid to lessen the dandruffs, I oiled my hair with Castor Oil and Olive Oil from Soul flower. You can read it's review on my blog later.
Post oiling and 20 minutes before washing, I applied sour curd on my hair and the sight was not too exciting but yeah comforting. Indeed testing time for Garnier Fructis. I took a deep plunge of faith and washed my hair only to feel them soft, untangled and well behaved. Yeah! I said well behaved.
Though the product instructions asked to apply conditioner on the scalp, I avoided doing so except very mild application over the scalp hair and not scalp. The effect was good.
I did not wanted to bring down my review with just one usage, so I tried this shampoo at least 3-4 more times. With less oil and again with less curd. My experience turned out to be good. May be that's what transpired me to try this shampoo again. So next time I tried applying it on upper hairs excluding scalp. Even then, my scalp didn't feel oily and rather was, exuberant, with volume.
What I liked about the product-
1) The shampoo and conditioner and not very thick, nor too runny2) The scent is not very strong but mild
3) It did not ward off all the oils in first 2 washes from my hair so that means it is quite mild
4) The Ingredient mix- Olive, coconut and Almond
What i did not liked about the product
1) It did not washed the oil even on repeat shampoo
2) Nothing much in particular
Final verdict: I was not a great fan of Garnier Shampoos. however, this one was quite better of the lot. During and post wash, I got a smooth feel. Dandruff is not troubling my scalp as much though the shampoo does not claim to settle them. May be it did not help aggravate it. My first 4 wash experience had been good. My hair felt smooth and good and most importantly in shape and non itchy [may be the curd and castor oil worked]
I am not sure if my hair become stronger but yes, they indeed look healthy and more manageable with each wash. Way to go Garnier.
Do I Recommend?
Yes but suit yourself. Try the pouch packs first and in case, you find your hair in better shape post wash, you can go for full bottle.
The conditioner is quite effective too and even a little of it, does it's job well.
The products sent were part of PR samples however, they bore no influence on my review. All the product reviews on Haute Kutir are basis the user experience and not influenced by brands without merit.
