I received the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo & Conditioner through BzzAgent! I’ve been using the shampoo every time I wash my hair (the conditioner often as well) for over 2 weeks now so I figure its time to review them for you guys!
I was a bit hesitant to try this shampoo and conditioner because I’ve been using sulfate-free formulas regularly for awhile and didn’t know if this would negatively affect my scalp. I was also hesitant because its a cheaper brand, and I wasn’t too thrilled with the Tresemme that I had received in a previous Bzz Campaign. The only other Garnier Fructis product I’ve used in the past was their leave-in conditioner (which I loved) so I can’t say I’ve had any negative experiences with the brand. Sure enough, I’ve been pretty pleased with the Triple Nutrition shampoo/conditioner!
PROS: This shampoo and conditioner are meant for dry, damaged hair. I usually style my hair with heat daily, so I’d say its pretty damaged. Both the shampoo and conditioner are fortified with some great moisturizing ingredients: avocado, olive oil, and shea. Both products smell absolutely amazing…very fruity and fresh! The conditioner formula is extremely creamy (as opposed to a lot of conditioners within the same price range) and reminded me a bit of the consistency of the macadamia oil deep repair masque, which I was also sampling at the time. Both of these products left my hair noticeably more moisturized, shiny, and less frizzy and dry. I was previously using Organix, and I could tell that it was a bit drying to my hair when I switched to this and noticed a difference. So 2 thumbs up for moisturizing!
CONS: On the flip-side, the issue with very moisturizing shampoos/conditioners such as this one is that they tend to weigh down your hair a bit, which I’ve also noticed since I’ve started using this. This is probably more noticeable with my hair type, which is very fine, but its harder to get volume in my hair when using this shampoo and conditioner and I’ve been reaching for the dry shampoo a bit more on day 2. I wouldn’t say this is something that has been a huge downside, though…just something I’ve noticed.
So would I suggest this shampoo and conditioner? If you have very dry, brittle, and damaged hair I would absolutely suggest you try it (for the price, you might as well!) If your hair is very fine and gets weighed down easily, then I’d suggest using it every other time you wash your hair. I can imagine these would be great products for someone who has very thick and dry hair.
For more information about the Triple Nutrition line, check out the Garnier Fructis website. They have a 3 minute hair mask as well and I’m curious about that…I wonder how it compares to the Aussie 3 minute miracle.
