So, the summer is ending and my hair is dry and brittle. I’ve always had coloured hair for really long time. I think I started when I was 17 or so. In the summer, it was really bad because the sun would metaphorically burn the colour of my hair out. But I didn’t know all this until recently. I just thought I have really bad hair. One day I was talking to my hair stylist about how dry my hair is, and he told me “you need heat protection for your hair! The sun damages your skin, why wouldn’t it damage your hair?” and I was like “WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT BEFORE??”.
So that’s how I started using heat protection for my hair and I’ve used several different brands from drug store to high end brands. Never really settled for one but recently I received Garnier Fructis #ColorShild haircare series to test out from Influenster. I was really happy to see this because I really needed new haircare products at the moment.
As much as I love to keep the colour of my hair because it just makes me feel fresh to have my hair colour really stand out. (my hair is died pitch black right now!) I think it’s really hard to keep the colour in my hair because I blow dry everyday, and use hair iron sometimes. On top of that, the sun in Vancouver has been CRAZY this summer.
So I’ve been trying out the series for about a week now and GURL, I’m impressed! Let me be honest with you, I am not a big fun of Fructis. I used them back when I was in high school and it made my hair really dry. But this time, my hair was nice and smooth! It’s definitely not the most rich moisturizing hair product, but it just gives my hair enough moisture so it’s nice and silky. I think it’ll work for people with oily hair too.
My favourite out of 3 I have recived is the hair spray. I use it before going out in the sun and it just keeps my hair nice and smooth all day! (and it’s not greasy). I will give them my “Shield of Approval” for sure! LOL
- Moisturizing without being too heavy
- Nice scent
- Variety of products
- May not work for severely damaged hair
- Packaging looks bit cheap (sorry!)
My Final Rating: 4/5
