Garnier Fructis is one of the most well-known hair and beauty brands. They are best known for their hair care and hair styling products for both women and men.
I’m not a huge fan of Garnier, as I feel like their skin products don’t work well with my skin; however, I’ve never had any issues with their hair products. Recently, I decided to try out their new Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask. I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised.
My hair was feeling dry and frizzy, and I knew it needed some TLC. It seemed like the perfect time to reach for the Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask. I tried the Smoothing Treat with avocado extract. Garnier claims the product is vegan, 94% biodegradable, with no silicon, parabens, or artificial colorants. They also claim it is made of “98% naturally-derived ingredients.” I’m not sure this claim is totally true, as the list of ingredients on the back seems to show far more than 2% of ingredients being “not naturally-derived.” Still, I’m no expert, so you can take a look at the list and decide for yourself.You can use the product in three different ways: as a hair mask, as a conditioner, or as a leave-in conditioner. I decided to go for the hair mask. I don’t really understand how it would work differently than a conditioner, and I was way too scared to try it as a leave-in. I think it would leave my hair feeling really greasy.
The first thing I noticed was that this product smelled like banana. It wasn’t overpowering, so if you hate the smell of bananas, I don’t think it would bother you. It left my hair with a light, clean scent. The next day I kept smelling the product and thinking, “What is that? It smells great!”
After using the product, I definitely felt like my hair was smoother. It was easier to brush through than it normally is. Usually, after I shower, I use a leave-in conditioner, but I didn’t want to mess with too many products – again, I don’t want my hair to be greasy. The next day my hair felt excellent. It was lighter and softer than usual. I wasn’t expecting this product to make much of a difference in my hair, but I really think it did exactly what it’s supposed to do. My hair was noticeably smoother.
I would love to try some of the other products in the line. The line comes in the following variety of treatment types:
Smoothing + avocado extract mask for soft and smooth hair.
Nourishing + coconut extract mask for smooth and manageable hair.
Damage repairing + papaya extract mask for damaged hair.
Strengthening + banana extract mask for stronger, healthier hair.
Color vibrancy + goji extract mask for more vibrant hair.
I think this is a product that would be good to use weekly, but I probably wouldn’t use it every day. As a hair mask, it truly did work for my hair. I may even have to go out and buy the full size!
