Review: Garnier Fructis avocado, olive and shea conditioner

I've seen the commercial for this on tv and wanted to try it because of the avocado, olive and shea- it just sounded like it would be something good for the hair. There was also a post on the BBB FB page about it (Hi, LaShauna!) and I thought, I need to pick this up. I wasn't really looking for a shampoo just another good conditioner so I only picked up the conditioner. Most products I use on Leelee for styling or moisture I don't use on myself, so I don't know exactly how it feels. Even though it may moisturize or hold well I don't know how it feels for her on her own head..if its too heavy on the scalp or feels dirty. Does that make sense? Anyway, only products I use that she uses is shampoo and conditioner.

When I first used it on Leelee's hair, I left it in for a couple minutes like I always do with every conditioner before washing out. I instantly liked it! When she got out it left her hair super soft, bouncy and even had a lil shine. It was detangled well with no knots whatsoever. All I did was moisturize/seal with coconut oil and it was perfect.

As for myself, it is the same- I LOVE IT! My hair is stick straight, damaged and tangles a lot. Whenever I get out of the shower I wrap it up into a towel and usually leave it for 20 minutes or so because I just hate dealing with it. After using this conditioner and leaving my hair thrown into a towel, it left my hair SOOOO soft and detangled. I was really surprised! I seriously loved it. I was able to run my hands through my hair with barely (if any!) knots ..it slipped straight through.

The only con I can think about for me is that it kind of leaves my hair oily looking after a couple days. Its bad for my hair type because it'll just look oily and dirty but its perfect for Leelee's dry hair that needs that extra moisture. I'm still in love with the fact that it leaves my hair super soft though.

I've used Suave almond and shea conditioner, Aussie moist, Organix coconut and milk and even Organix moroccan argon oil and they all left me with the same result- soft after rinsing it out and then nasty and tangled afterwards (and I was use to this result) I am glad to say this product is different. Its really a must have that I will keep buying!

Btw, when I purchased this I also got the Aussie Moist as well and guess what I'm doing......returning it!

I would like to make a suggestion, I cringed when I read that you use a towel on your own hair. I used to do the same thing but I have now began using old cotton t-shirts. It is amazing the difference this makes in my hair, which is waist length. I would encourage you to try it a few times not only do you not get as many knots you will notice that your hair will dry quicker as well.
