Garnier shampoo and conditioner has been such a reliable standard for so long that I was surprised to hear they were doing something new. If it ain’t broke, right? I used to be a very loyal Garnier hair care user. For a while in college, it was the only line I would use. It was the only thing that could handle my thick, frizzy, wavy hair.
The new line is a more natural collection using ingredients that you are familiar with. The collections are paraben free, which is nice, but they aren’t ALL natural. They have natural extracts. The idea behind this line actually makes me a little sad. I wish that Garnier wasn’t playing on the more organic and natural trends in beauty. Since this line isn’t all natural, I kind of feel like I am being duped. Regardless, I wanted to give them a fair shot, since I have love for Garnier in my heart.
I tried the Colour Care line which includes argan oil and cranberry. I was actually really impressed with its performance. The line has a nice consistency and smell. It’s subtle and creamy. My scalp has been so dry this winter and nothing seems to fix it. I was shocked that after a few used to this line and my scalp wasn’t itchy any more. I was so busy thinking about the colour care aspect and whether it stopped frizz, that I almost didn’t even notice how moisturized my hair felt. I have tried a million products. Who would ever believe this Garnier line would be the one to solve all of my issues?
Now that I’m hooked, I am excited to try more from the Whole Blends line!
