Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review
I was able to try the new Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner thanks to BzzAgent. I was sent free full size samples to try out on my hair and see how it did. This product is supposed to work best on dry, frizzy and unmanageable hair. It is claimed to fight frizz and keep hair sleek for three days straight even in 97% humidity. The product is stated to be infused with Fortified Fruit Science and ultra-smoothing Argan Oil from Morocco to deliver long-lasting shine and hair that’s 10x smoother.
I find that the bottles give good information on them about the product. They are suggested to retail for $3.99 for a 13 oz bottle and $6.99 for a 25.4 oz bottle. I personally do not like to pay that much for any shampoo and conditioner, but I know most high-end brands are that much or more. You can check their Facebook page or website to see if coupons are available. http://www.facebook.com/garnierusa?sk=app_137656902971961
Now about my experience with the product. When I first opened the bottles I personally did not like the smell of the product. It has an apricot smell but for some reason it reminded me of some kind of alcoholic drink. My husband didn’t like the smell of it on my hair as well as other products I use either. But everyone likes different smells so don’t let that put you off. I did continue using the product anyway and didn’t mind it much once I got used to it and my son thinks it smells good so everyone is different.
My hair is fairly straight but has a little wave to it and it always seems dry at the ends and it is layered so it seems to look frizzy at times. I was excited to see if this could make my layers look more smooth and keep my ends from looking so dry. It did take a while for me to see results. It was a few weeks before I really started to notice my hair looking smoother and shinier. I am finding that with continued use the product is starting to show signs of its claim. Just a few days ago, I had let my hair dry naturally (no blow dryer). I had only combed through it, no product or anything and in the sun it looked noticeably shinier and the ends didn’t look dried out or frizzy. I have to say at first I was very skeptical and didn’t think this product would be true to its claims but I am starting to change my view of it. I don’t know if it would be worth it to me to pay $3.99 a bottle but if there was a sale and a coupon, I would definitely consider buying it.
