Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine

Retailing at Walmart for $7, Garnier presents this Moroccan style oil treatment designed to help frizzy, dry, destroyed hair like mine. I picked up this 111ml bottle in the hopes that it would be a cost-effective dupe for my beloved Moroccan Oil treatment. My hair is dry, brittle, broken and in many ways; hopeless.  Thank you, stylist, of my nightmares.

This oil comes in a plastic squeezy bottle.  The scent is pleasant and fruity, although I admittedly would be very hard pressed to be able to actually identify what it exactly smells like.  The oil itself is a deep golden color, and a little dab will do you.  Designed to be used in three different ways: As an add-in used in conjunction with conditioner to provide deep conditioning, as a leave-in conditioner on towel dried hair and as a frizz tamer on already dried tresses.  This product is exceedingly versatile.

Used in the shower as a conditioner:  I found it to be a bit heavy on my hair.  It was also strong enough to make me break out where I got it on my skin. It worked well as long as I was super careful to not get too close to my roots or I had difficulties with limp hair.

Used as a leave-in conditioner: Amazing results.  I loved this method, and it is the one I use most often.  My hair is full and lively while showing no frizz and it didn’t feel like straw.

Used on dry hair to tame frizz:  This application made my hair go limp.  The product did absorb well. However, it wasn’t quite light enough to work effectively with my hair type.

I love how this works on my hair, I love how it is similar to my Moroccan oil and yet entirely different and very affordable.  I do find Moroccan oil to be lighter in texture, but the result is the same.  Buy it, if you have a chance.  It is well worth the price and totally worth the money.
