Hey there Girls,
So I have highlights (shock!) and everyone knows that this dries the hair to within an inch of its life, I am very fond of the Professional range of Shampoos and Conditioners that you can buy in salon supplies but as you can imagine they are pretty pricey. Me being me wanted to find a more affordable alternative in the supermarket, I did not hold out too much hope most supermarket ones are runny, greasy or totally strip your hair and your hair never really feels properly clean.
When I went into Supervalu a couple of weeks ago I saw the Garnier Ultimate Blends range on ‘better than half price’ and thought sure why not! I decided to try The strength restorer which contains Honey, Royal Jelly and Propolis extract, It claimed to give you STRONGER HAIR IN JUST 1 WEEK ………. yea right but sure keep my opinions to myself till I try it I thought, everything deserves a chance.
I’ve been using it now for 2 weeks and I have to say I’m eating my words!! I really like this shampoo and conditioner the smell alone is absolutely amazing! The shampoo is thick which is great because you use less product. When I started to massage it into my hair it lathered really well and when I washed it out my hair felt clean and already soft . I then applied the conditioner, which felt thick and rich. It was so easy to apply through my hair (because the shampoo had already left my hair knot free) and when I rinsed it out my hair did not feel dry at all. Brushing was a synch not a knot in site and when I dried my hair it had a lovely shine (which anyone who has highlights knows is not an easy thing to get) and felt really soft. It also looked brighter,I used it in the kiddies hairs too and my 8-year-old even commented on how soft her hair was and how easy it was to brush the next day, which never happens for her she gets very tangled hair and it picked up her natural highlights too, which seems to be an added bonus!! The next day I can even still get a lovely fragrance from my hair it really is yummy.
How it works:
The Honey is enriching known for its nourishing properties.
The Royal Jelly is a revitilizing elixir.
The Propolis extract works as a protective barrier on the hair.
I’ll be stocking up on this little gem girls and I would recommend it to anyone who has highlighted/prone to breakage hair and the big bonus is the value for money.
Hope you enjoyed and as always any questions or comments feel free to ask.
