So I took up the #happyhairchallenge from Garnier almost a month back & at that time my hair had the tendency to be like what I highlighted here!
Here’s the journey from a tendency like this –>
to using this –>
to hair like this –>
KIDDING! No my hair didn’t change colour! 🙂
to this –> (well somewhat)
After using the shampoo frequently over a period of a month, following was my experience:
In the initial days of usage, my hair would feel soft immediately after the wash and conditioning process. However once my hair would dry properly, it would look rather electrified and I had to apply hair oil each time to just settle it! (grr – see topmost image above again) So I reduced the quantity of shampoo used. I also increased the time I waited, before washing off the conditioner and the results improved considerably. No more frizz. And my hair felt “silky” & easy to maintain. I might as well add, that the conditioner bottle mentions applying it on scalp but I NEVER apply conditioner to my scalp (ever since I learnt from haircare professionals that one is not supposed to). I take some in my palms and rub it from roughly 1 inch of hair follicles to hair tips without going to the scalp. It does help in reducing hair fall because conditioner is tougher getting out of one’s hair. Also, I don’t wash my hair without applying hair oil and massaging well first. So the product hasn’t been tried on an absolutely “dry” head.
Both the shampoo & conditioner have attractive & bright packaging and a pleasant fruity smell. They have a pretty good shelf life (36 months) compared to other brands. The lathering is moderate. Not too much and not too less. I personally like more lather, but as long as results are fine, this is ok too.
The conditioner bottle’s instructions mention leaving it in for 1-2 minutes, but I left it for a good 3-4 minutes before washing off (towards the later half of my experiment). I have tried leaving it for shorter but as mentioned above, it doesn’t help my hair in the least.
Previously when I had been asked for a hair evaluation by Garnier (“Which is the biggest hair problem that you face?”) Mine in decreasing order of concern, were:
- Frizzy/Unmanageable hair
