Not only does this product work amazingly well to help condition my curls but it smells incredible! I co wash and only shampoo once a week and this product doesn't leave a greasy residue. I love that it's free of all the nasties like sulfates and parabens. I use it as a conditioner but it's also great as a mask and a leave in which is super handy for times when you need some extra conditioning..

Tips: Countdown often have it on sale for 50% off so I stock up then :)
I read the reviews on here and chose this particular one which was most suited to my hair. It made my hair soft but no different to say a Treseme conditioner so bit disappointed. Cant say i noticed any smell once i had rinsed it out but smelling the product in the pot its not something I would rave about. Use it periodically but not sure i would buy again. It certainly didnt exceed my expectations,.
If you're on a budget and needs a leave in curl conditioner...this is it! It smells nice, leaves your hair feeling soft and last very long. I have curly hair and this helps define my curls so well. It does not leave a white residue on your hair when you add a bit of gel to set your curls. However when I do use it properly and dry/straighten//style it, my hair feels soft and healthy with a bit of a non greasy shine.
Tips: A little bit goes a long way but don't be stingy if your hair is very coarse and dry.
Love this product so much, its so creamy and thick , and the smell is divine I love all the hair food sents, l use this for a hair mask as well and a little goes a long way It enhances my curls , and dies not leave my hair heavy or weighed down
Tips: A bargain when it comes up half price at supermarket
The Garnier Hair Foods are basically famous if you follow the Curly Girl Method. They Key is to find the right one for your hair. I found Papaya to be too heavy for my Fine, wavy/curly hair. The price of these products is sensational - especially if you get them on special at the supermarket. you get so much product, and they all smell amazing. I think Papaya would be great for people with medium - thick hair, and just adjust the amount you use.
Tips: As the Papaya Hair Food is too heavy for my fine hair - I do NOT use it as a mask or as a leave in. I only use it as a very moisturizing conditioner every now and then and ensure I rinse it all out.
I really like the smell of this one and how soft my hair feels after using it. You can use it 3 different ways and the tub is massive. I'm not a huge fan of twist off tops for products that need to be used in the shower and it's quite a handful as the tub is so big (if you don't have space to put it if you have a small shower surface to put your shampoos, etc like me). I love Garnier skin care but have found that my hair isn't suited to Garnier products-I tend to end up with itchy dandruff unfortunately. I got this on sale though and will use up what I have but may not buy again.
I started using this everytime I washed my hair for 2 months, but didn't really find a difference in my hair, there was really no improvement at all. Although it did smell great.
I use this product as a conditioner and leave in for my very dry hair. I started using because it is free of silicones, alcohol etc so perfect if you follow the curly girl method. I liked this one better than the Goji or Aloe versions, haven't yet tried Banana or Macadamia because the Papaya has been good for my dry hair.
I'm a huge fan of hair food, however this variety isn't the best for my hair which is dry and frizzy with waves. Its probably best suited for straight hair which isn't overly dry. The macadamia and aloe versions however are AMAZING for my hair.
However, that being said for the price and not to mention tub size even with average result in conditioning my hair this is definitely worth a try to see if it works for you. Worst case you can use it up as a conditioner.
The smell is pleasant fruity fragrance that's not overly strong. It's a lovely thick texture as all hair foods are and if I had not tried other varieties I'd have been pretty happy with the purchase as a conditioner. It is reasonably moisturising.
I love Garnier as a brand and this range is definitely worth trying out
I love this product!! It is an amazing hair product and the intense conditioner makes your hair feel amazing - especially If you hair is damaged. It doesn't cost that much for what you get and you can use it as different things like a hair mask or a hair conditioner. It lasts a pretty long time as it comes in a big container. I would like to try the other flavours as well!!
