I was at Wal Mart yesterday with my brother and of course he was getting annoyed with me visiting the hair care and beauty isle (couldn't help it!) but any who I came across Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Conditioner with Olive, Avocado & Shea, I was sold just by looking at the ingredients! The packaging is great and the scent is a subtle cucumber melon with a hint of citrus. Its not over powering at all which made me want to buy it even more. When I got home my fro was looking dangerous so I decided to do a co-wash with the conditioner and set my hair with it as a leave-in along with the Qhemet Biologics Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade. The co-wash was great, my hair wasn't silky but soft and full of bounce, the conditioner did not weigh my hair down at all and my hair stayed tangle free. Some conditioners I've used in the past gave me a lot of tangles so its always something I look out for when I start using a new conditioner. I than proceeded to set my hair into bantu knots using the conditioner as a leave-in. After putting the conditioner in I sealed my roots and ends with the Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade. My hair was shiny and healthy looking as it dried throughout the evening. This morning I undid the bantu knots and smoothed some shea butter on each twist and than undid my hair. My hair was soft and bouncy. I will use this product in my routine, it's more affordable than Kiss My Face but will never replace it, I'll just go back and forth between these two when I co-wash or use a leave-in.
Performance: It gets the job done well. My hair was tangle free, soft and manageable. My hair was a little more frizzier than when I use my KIis My Face but nothing too drastic from what I'm use to. The only thing I will do different is use shea butter next time to seal instead of the Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade. 1.5/2
Price: 3.77 CAD for 384 ml, this rings affordable to me especially if you go through conditioner as quickly as I do. 2/2
