My hair used to be my “crowing glory.” I had such thick, lush, wonderful hair when I was younger. Fast forward decades later and my poor hair has changed so much. It’s now thinner, dry, dull and turning white and silver. Sigh…
My daughter, thankfully, has been blessed with thick, lush, beautiful hair – the kind of hair I used to have.
When it comes to my hair I make it a point to use hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, serums, styling products) that benefit my hair in some way.
My husband and son use the most basic shampoo. They cannot understand why women need to use different shampoos and conditioners. I guess because most men don’t care about their hair – most especially my husband and son who have crew cuts.
Garnier is a brand that I purchase from frequently. I use a lot of their beauty products (I love their Clearly Brighter Brightening and Smoothing Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15). I also use Garnier’s hair coloring (either Olia Light Auburn or Ultra Color Light Auburn).
Garnier offers consumers several hair care products, including several different shampoos and conditioners.
Garnier has added a new shampoo and conditioner to their hair care line – Garnier Fructis Grow Strong.
The new shampoo and conditioner helps to fortify your hair as your hair grows. This helps your hair to be stronger, look healthier and even give your hair some shine. This is exactly the type of hair care product I need.
I was sent a bottle of Garnier Fructis Grow Strong Shampoo and Conditioner to try out for myself.
First and foremost I love the scent. It’s NOT a powerful scent. Its very light and you only smell it in the shower (I wish the scent would last all day). First thing in the morning when I am not fully awake it’s nice to have a pleasant scent greet you in the shower.
A little bit of both the shampoo and conditioner goes a long way. I have course, thick, shoulder length hair and I didn’t need a lot of the product to get the job done.
It’s important for me for a shampoo and conditioner to rinse out well. I don’t like products that force me to stay in the shower longer than I need to. I like products that rinse out fully with no problem and not residue afterwards. Both Garnier Fructis Grow Strong shampoo and conditioner rinsed out easily with no problem.
I should note that I have sensitive skin. Sometimes products trigger my Eczema, which I get on my face, scalp and neck. This shampoo and conditioner didn’t cause any outbreaks, so that is also another thing I like about it.
Even after the first time I used the the product I noticed that my hair was super soft. In fact, I was surprised at how soft it felt after just one use. Usually you have to wait days or weeks for results. I never anticipated feeling the difference after just one use.
I can’t tell you if my hair is stronger, but I do notice that I have less breakage when I comb/style my hair. I also notice less hair sitting on top of the shower drain. The conditioner also seems to help with knots (I have less knots/tangles than I normally have).
I know my daughter is using the product because I am running through both bottles quickly. We have a closet full of shampoos and conditioners (my husband stocks up on them when they are on sale) so for her to keep using these two bottles (shampoo and conditioner) she must like the results too.
My hair feels really clean after I use both the Garnier Fructis Grow Strong shampoo and conditioner. It also seems to look cleaner longer too. I wash my hair every other day due to having thick, course hair. My hair seems to look cleaner than it does with other shampoos. Sometimes the next day my hair doesn’t look as clean. The Garnier Fructis Grow Strong shampoo and conditioner keep my hair from looking dirty/greasy the next day compared to other shampoos and conditioners I have tried.
I still have split ends, but I also haven’t had my hair cut in months. I don’t think these products repair hair. They are more so to prevent damage from happening to your hair.
So far I am very pleased with my experience with the new Garnier Fructis Grow Strong Shampoo and Conditioner.
