So my new "vow" is to not use any heat or dye on my hair (No highlights, no permanents, no chemicals, no blow dry and no flat iron) The natural lightening (or darkening) remedies and styling techniques will take care of that, just in case I want a change. But of course, I will use heat for special events (Salon)
Let's say I have virgin hair right now, and it totally hates almost anything with protein in it, so I need moisture... moisture moisture and more moisture. Treatments like these are hard to find IMO, I'm surprised there isn't a lot of stuff for virgin hair, almost everything out there is targeted for hair with at least some grade of damage.
First of all, this smells like heaven, soo fruity and yummy! The consitency is thick, and does not make your hair greasy even if you apply it near the root (Even me, with an oily scalp) It really hydrates your hair and makes it shiny! I'm going to use it 2 times a week from now on. The only bad thing of this is that is has a silicone (Amodimethicone) and I feel that my hair has some tiny film, but not bad either way... it does not build up and it does not make your hair oily, dirty or greasy...!
Garnier has just released a haircare line that is paraben and silicone free (For dull hair called grapefruit tonic, for dry hair called fruity passion, and for greasy hair called citrus mint fresh) Can't wait to try these out! There aren't available in the USA... yet.
Seeing amazing reviews for this product, I ran out to the drug store to find it. My damaged bleached hair is in desperate need for a good deep conditioner. As soon as I bought this, I went home to try it out. I put this in my hair and secured it in a shower cap. I applied a bit of heat so it can better penetrate my hair. I left this on for about an hour or two. I was so excited to rinse it out to see the results. When I did, I was COMPLETELY disappointed. There was no improvement in my hair whatsoever. I still use this product as an everyday conditioner along with my normal conditioner, just so I can empty the bottle and throw it away. I definitely will not be repurchasing this product.
I'm using this along with the shampoo and conditioner. I really like it. It smells great, leaves my hair very soft and bouncy. My waves look very full, not flattened out or heavy. It gives good slip and combs through easily.
It's a bit more costly that the conditioner, but you don't need much. Overall, I really enjoy the whole Hydra line and would recommend it.
I received this product for free from Bzzagent. Out of the three items (shampoo, conditioner, moisture treatment) that I received in this campaign, I like only the 1-Minute Moisture-plenish treatment.
My first impression of this line wasn't great - because the shampoo was too drying, the conditioner wasn't rich enough, and the moisture treatment didn't compensate for the drying shampoo. But, the next time, I decided to used the moisture treatment after washing my hair with my usual mild shampoo - and I was impressed!
Main differences I noticed in my hair:
1. "Towel-dry and done!" - My hair is usually a frizzy mess after I wash it. But after using the moisture treatment, all I did was towel-dry/ air-dry, and I was ready to step out of the house.
2. "When the wind blows... I feel my soft hair" - I usually hate driving with my car windows down because my hair pokes! ouch! But my hair feels so soft now - I can truly enjoy the wind blowing in my hair.
3. I notice a healthy shine in my hair
4. Hair doesn't tangle - even after rolling in bed :p
I must mention that I needed to use a good amount of product, even for my shoulder length hair. Also, the product was more effective when left it for 3-4 minutes.
Verdict: Likely to repurchase
Simple and to the point: I LOVE this product! :)
Just like the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge shampoo & conditioner, the 1-minute moisture plenish treatment combines the super fruity powers of goji berries, kiwi and passion fruit, which give your hair maximum hydration, while leaving it sooo soft & silky! The texture of the treatment is creamy/gel-like which makes it super easy to apply from roots to tips, getting the treatment in all the right spots, deep between each and every one of the hair strands. Already while rinsing you can feel the incredible smoothness, just as if the hair was a "waterfall" of hair. And, most of all, the scent of the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge line is simply AMAZING! I highly recommend this product!
I absolutely love this treatment!! It has the same great amazing results as 15 and 20 minute treatments but only takes one minute (which is a great for a mom with young kids who doesn't have a lot of "me" time). The superfruit blend of goji berry, passion fruit and kiwi smells absolutely amazing!! Leaves hair feeling hydrated without weighing down and has kept the frizz away for me!

After four weeks of using Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge my hair looks and feels incredibly silky and smooth. There are lots of products out there that promise to restore your hair’s natural shine, and if you’re like me you’ve tried many of them and had less than satisfying results. Garnier’s Hydra Recharge is a completely different and very positive experience. Garnier delivers on its promise to put the life back in your hair by making it vibrant, rich and silky smooth. After only a month I have the hair I’ve always wanted. Hydra recharge works, and they’re the only products I’ll be using from now on.
As I BzzAgent, on BzzAgent.com, I was recently given the opportunity to try Garnier Fructis' new Hydra Recharge system. Instantly I fell in love with this product. It left my hair so soft and smooth. I felt like my hair was getting its rightful conditioning. I definitely plan to buy this product as soon as I am done with the bottle I have now. I wasn't a fan of the conditioner at all. I was definitely disappointed, but after reading reviews on this product from Garnier's website I realized that people were saying to use the 1 minute moisture-plenish treatment and then the conditioner. I always did it the other way around. I will e trying it out that way as soon as I wash my hair again. Maybe ten I will see the benefits and fall in the love with conditioner. But I am completely impressed with this product an love the feel I get after I use it. This will definitely become a must buy and be in my regular hair routine for moisture and conditions.
I really like the Hydra Recharge shampoo and conditioner from Garnier, but I didn't see any extra results from using the 1-Minute Moisture-Plenish Treatment. My hair might have been slightly softer, but it really wasn't noticeable.
I received this product free of charge as part of a bzzagent campaign.
I am a BzzAgent (www.bzzagent.com) and was recently given the opportunity to try Garnier Fructis’ new line, Hydra Recharge for FREE! The Bzz package that I received included a Hydra Recharge Shampoo, a Hydra Recharge Conditioner, and a 1-Minute-Moisture-Plenish Treatment.
I have been blessed, thanks to my father, with extremely thick hair that tends to have a personality of its own. I think my hair should look one way and it disagrees and goes the opposite direction. For example, Monday through Friday it never fails, I am standing in the bathroom talking to my hair as I try to straighten it, my three year is begging me to hold her, and as each minute ticks by the likelihood of me arriving at work on time decreases…. Don’t fret future employers, 99% of the time I still make it before 8:00 AM… I digress.
Since I have been “blessed” with feisty, thick hair I tend to be very picky when it comes to the products that get to share shower time with me. Different products on the market have caused me headaches over the years and some embarrassing moments. Nobody likes to be asked if they took a shower that day because their hair looks GREASY by lunch time… yes… I shower daily, thank you! I also hate products that make my hair look and/or feel like straw as I am not a scarecrow. I am still considerably young, in my 30s, and want to feel young and vibrant when I step out of the shower… or at least kinda sorta.
For the last two years I have switched back and forth between two brands of hair care products; one is Garnier Fructis and the other shall remain nameless. I change up my regime when my hair gets bent out of shape and requests a change in pace a.k.a. it stops cooperating. I am pleased to say, I don’t think that will be necessary anymore!
First, the products come in bright green bottles and I LOVE green! I tend to be a morning person, well, sometimes and I really enjoy…scratch that, need…a pop of color first thing when I stumble in to take a shower after the demonic alarm has played it’s anthem.
As for the 1-Minute-Moisture-Plenish Treatment I have no idea how I really feel. I have used this product four times so far and don’t really like it when I am actually in the shower using it. When I put this product in my hair it actually makes my hair feel strange. It is super thin and I never feel as though I have enough…if that makes any sense at all? I currently have short hair, after a recent cut, and feel like I should use more of this product on my short hair then I would have used when my hair was long. Each time I have gone back and added extra product. I then lather up my body, rinse off, and prepare to wash out the treatment after at least one minute has passed. I said I don’t really know how I feel about this product because it actually makes my hair look and feel AMAZING! I just ran my fingers through my locks, sorry… I had to say it, and my hair is extremely soft and shiny. This is not a look that I have ever been able to achieve more less perfect! I see other people with shiny hair and have always been envious…now I can join their secret club. I think a few minutes of uncertainty in the shower are worth a day of gorgeous hair! Don’t you? SHINE is in ladies and this product gives you SHINE!!
Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone and have recommended it to friends. To me, I would rather step up my coloring routine versus not having shower buddies that suit my needs. I love that my hair is soft, manageable, and SHINY! Someone at work even commented that they like my new highlights…yeah, I don’t have highlights! Garnier has created a product that will make your hair feel healthy and clean. Instead of going to a salon or store that sells expensive hair products I recommend that you head out to your local grocery/drugstore and pick up this product NOW!
What are you waiting for? It’s time to RECHARGE! Trust me… your hair will thank you!
