When did my ‘fro decide that Garnier hair care was alright with her?

Well, what happened was, I tried Garnier’s Marvelous oil and I thought, ‘why not try their Triple Nutrition line? There were a few stand outs (read on below to find out which ones), and a few that were just OK. Overall, I’m encouraged by how useful these were for my natural hair.

Garnier Triple Nutrition Double Care Detangling Nourish + Repair Leave-In

If you’re hair is straight, very easy to manage, and not as thick, this might work for you. It does an OK job of a leave-in and detangler, but I have to use a lot of it in one sitting and it’s not long lasting: The bottle is 3/4 done already,and I bought it days ago (thank God it was cheap!). If I didn’t slather my hair and scalp with oil, after using this stuff, my hair would have revolted. Honestly, my hair likes cream leave-ins.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying Conditioner for Dry, Damaged Hair

I’m not sure whether this is supposed to be a quick conditioner sort of deal, which you put in and rinse out after shampooing, but I use it as a straight up conditioner: I put this through my hair after using that Marvelous oil and, together, they make a marvelous team. I should have bought the bigger bottle!

My hair loves the heck out of this stuff! It made my curls soft, hydrated, sheeny, and I woke up with very manageable hair the next day. They recommend that people leave it in for three minutes and rinse it out. But no, I don’t work like that. I slather it on, put on a shower cap, throw a heating cap on, and leave that on for at least ten to fifteen minutes. I’m sure it would work well within the recommend time, but I like using it how I use it (with heat!) to get the good stuff deep into my hair. This is my absolute favourite!

Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Smoothing Cream 24 HR Anti-frizz Control

This one is best used when you hair is completely dry, with a friend, and sparingly: it’s going to leave a white film on your hair (which doesn’t look good on dark hair – trust me!), and feel crunchy if you use too much. I use a dime-sized amount mixed in with the fortifying conditioner.
