I tried this and the corresponding conditioner and it turned my hair to straw! I gave away both bottles. If it weren't so cheap, I be mad! After a long boycott of Garnier Fructis, I decided to try the Length & Strength formula -- now THAT is a moisturizing shampoo for dry hair. Skip this one and reach for the L&S.
I totally love this range of products. It's not too expensive, but yet produces great results for my hair. I use the shampoo, conditioner and 1 min hair mask in conjuction with Kerastase Oleo-Relax serum, and it makes my hair super soft and shiny! Love the smell too! Would definitely buy it again in a heartbeat!
this is the far by worst product i have EVER used. totally dryed out my hair and made it like straw. nice smell though. i will never buy this again
Eh. I'm on the fence. It's a nice creamy shampoo, but after about three weeks of usage, my hair goes back to feeling extremely dry. It's a good, decently cheap drugstore brand, and often comes on sale here. I only buy it when it's a 2 for 1 so I can get the conditioner too.
Weighed my long hair down considerably, i begged garnier to make a 2 in 1's for heat styled smoothing hair shampoo with less moisture and oils in them, well, fallen upon deaf ears again!! I WONT BUY THIS AGAIN, UNLESS, THEY COME UP WITH SOME MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS!!
This is junk. My hair is extremily dry and damaged from years of using a flatiron, highlghts, and even chemical straightening. I dont expect miracles from any shampoo, as ive learned nothing can truely repair damaged hair. But this does nothing to make it less dry either. Ive used every brand of shampoo, and this is probobly the worst. Dove for extremily dry and damaged hair, is probobly the only one that ive noticed a real differnce in my hair with. Including expensive shampoos
I'm not entirely sure if "Repair and Shine" is the UK version of "Dry & Damaged", but I think it is.
Anyhow, that being said, this is a very bizarre shampoo.
I have really dry/damaged hair from dying it recently. I bought this shampoo because I wanted something moisturizing, but not heavy. This shampoo was bizarre because it coated my hair in what felt like an oil slick, but my hair didn't absorb it? It was almost like it was coated with oil, yet my hair was still dry! It also made my hair greasier at the roots (I don't normally have greasy roots) and didn't wash out the old grease and dirt that was there. It also hasn't made it any shinier, although, I'm sure the shampoo oil must be dulling it up.
I would have given this product two lippies because of the AWESOME smell and pretty packaging, but I feel that is two lippies too much. I'm not sure I would ever buy another Fructis shampoo unless it was on sale.
I finally realized that this shampoo was responsible for the bleached-out shade my colored hair turned after a couple of weeks.
I LOVE Garnier Fructis shampoos and conditioners. Out of all the different types of Garnier products I've used I like this line the best. When I use both the shampoo and conditioner together, my hair is very shiny and soft. Although I like to cheat on this product and use other products I always come back to this one. Helpful hint: I use the dollar off coupons for Fructis and end up paying ~$2 each.
Just as bad as the conditioner. Smells fabulous, and that is all. When I started to rinse this out of my hair, it felt like I was washing pieces of straw! My hair has never felt so dry when washing a shampoo out before. Afterwards, I used the conditioner and that did nothing at all to help. My hair was frizzy, dry, and even more damaged looking than when I began. Don't let the smell tempt you!!
