Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser (2)

Out of all the colours, I like orange the least. It's just never appealed to me much. Today's post happens to be full of orange in the form of the new Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser lineup. Luckily I kind of love it so I might just be able to look past all that orange.

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser- shampoo and conditioner

The Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner are both formulated with  Phyto-Keratin® Complex which contains plant based proteins, fruit concentrate and Cupuaçu Butter to straighten and nourish hair. Plus, like all Fructis products, they smell pretty amazing too! I find it hard to find fault with any shampoo; as long as it leaves my hair clean, I'm happy. I mean, how do you really know how well a shampoo has performed when you follow up with conditioner, right? Anyhow, I have been very happy with my hair since using this shampoo, so it works for me. As for the conditioner... I have a confession. I haven't used it. I have a good reason though...

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser- split end bandage and reconstructing butter

It's because I can't stop using the Garnier Damage Eraser Strength Reconstructing Butter. It's pretty amazing! I normally go cheap on my shampoo and splurge on an expensive conditioner/conditioning treatment because I find they work so much better on my hair. I've used drugstore deep conditioners and masques and until now have never found one that gave my hair enough hydration, but this butter (as they call it), is well worth the space in my shower. It's thick- as you can see above it retains my claw marks still in it- and holds well on wet hair. I get quite annoyed with masks that are thin and don't stick to wet hair; how am I supposed to keep it on for 3-5 minutes when it's sliding down my back? Back on topic though- it's thick, it stays on hair and it really gives hair a hydration boost. It does take a few minutes to get out of hair, but the extra rinse time is worth it. Once hair is dry, I can see a visible difference- hair is softer, shinier and just looks healthier. Love in a little orange tub!

As for the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Split-End Bandage, I wasn't prepared to like it. I mean, I have split ends, my ends are dry- my hair has recently been bleached- so I know I need a trim. I really didn't think this product would do much as we all know the only real solution for split ends is a hair cut. Which is still totally true, this will not magically fix your hair, but it will make it look a whole lot better. It's kind of magical actually, as a little of this on damp hair works to smooth split ends and makes them less noticeable all while. It claims to strengthen and reconstruct damaged hair, which it very well might with prolonged use, but I haven't found that to be true just yet.

Overall, I highly recommend the Reconstructing Butter if you have a penchant for pricier hair treatments as this is quite comparable to something you's pay $30-$50 for. The whole range is nice, but it's the definite stand out for me. Have you tried any of these products? What are your fave hair products?
