As women I feel like we are always using some sort of conditioning treatment on our hair. At least I know I am. Between the stress of blow drying and styling our hair, the seasonal stress of the changing weather, our hair is pretty frequently due for a little (or a lot) of TLC.
We want our hair to look good, and for it to look good, we have to treat it good. In between all those conditioners I have had my share of duds as I’m sure you have too – you know the ones, the lotions and potions that weigh your hair down, make it feel extra oily or still dry, if they work at all. My sister has a head of gorgeous hair. It seems no matter what she does to it, it always looks good! I asked her what she uses and she told me about Garnier Damage Eraser Heal and Seal Treatment – I immediately ran over to CVS and picked up some! After using it twice I have to say it falls quickly into the category of my all time favorite hair treatments.
The product did not weigh down my hair or make it feel like there was a thin bit of residue left behind on my hair or scalp. I was actually surprised about this, as you’re meant to use the 60-second conditioner in the shower following your normal conditioner. Usually post conditioning treatments can be heavy and especially oily, this one you just apply, wait a minute, and rinse out. Formulated with phyto-keratin complex and cupuacu butter (which is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols, the tree itself being a cousin to the cocoa tree), the treatment is designed to repair and seal hair fiber without any build up. I suspect the fatty cupuacu butter lends to the treatments it’s “melting” sensation – where the treatment gets thinner as you apply it to your hair.
The consistency is nice and thick with a light yellow ting, and smells incredibly good. In fact, even if it was just a “good” treatment I’d still probably buy it because it leaves my hair smelling amazing after my shower. I can’t say enough about this product. It’s salon quality inside the comfort of your own home, and with out the prices of an expensive spa treatment.
My hair is no longer brittle and damaged to the touch. After using up a bottle of this, it’s now incredibly soft and better than normal. I love it. This one is definitely a winner in my book.
Where to buy:
6.8 oz (CVS $5.99) – available at Target and most anywhere you can find Garnier Fructis products.
