I'm in the throws of going granny grey - which means two bleaching sessions in the last month. The first at the hairdressers and the second at home. After the first session my hair was feeling a little frazzled and more than a little fragile, definitely in need of some repair.
I've used Fructis in the past but I have to admit I was excited about the thought of a paraben free, silicone free range - there's nothing worse that heavy, weighed down hair, especially when its already a bit worse for wear.
These products both smell incredible, fruity and fresh - delicious! The smell lingers nicely through the day, so mega points for that.
I love the packaging and I really love the fact Garnier have gotten rid of the little 'clasp' that used to be a nightmare to open. These are nice, basic, sturdy flip tops.
The shampoo lathers nicely and rinses easily - I never double shampoo anyway, I honestly think its just a waste of product, but my hair felt nice and clean, but not too dry after just one shampoo - considering the torture of bleach happening over this time, I don't think I could ask for more from a shampoo.
The conditioner is rich and creamy. My hair is shoulder-length and thick and I found a $2 amount to be ample. I worked it through my (very beached) ends carefully, and left it for about 3 mins before rinsing. My hair felt soft even when wet, I could feel the difference.
After use my hair is soft and manageable and shiny - the holy trinity of hair care right there!
I've been using the shampoo every 4 days and the conditioner daily - the bottles go a long way, and are so cheap, especially for paraben/silicone-free products. So my favourite thing - an economical product that works!
I'm really enjoying the nutri-repair range and will continue using it. Once my hair has reached it's Granny-Chic goals and is in a 'stable' condition I'll try more from the Fructis range - at this price I just have to!
