Hi guys! Today I’m bringing you a review of the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask from Garnier Response. This line contains avocado oil and shea butter, which are two ingredients that really nourishes the hair and gives it moisture and softness. The shampoo and conditioner are for dry and damaged hair, and the mask is for very dry hair.
The entire line is very inexpensive, and for the price I have to say that I am fairly impressed! I first bought these products because they specifically were for dry and damaged hair, and my hair had been feeling awfully dry for ages!
Let’s start with the shampoo. In my opinion this product really does get my hair clean. I can’t find any product residue after washing my hair, which is good. It has a nice, fresh smell and the consistency is very nice and on the thicker side. The shampoo is also paraben and silicon free, which is nice. One thing though is that you have to be really careful when you squeeze the product into your hand. The bottle has a fairly big opening and if you just squeeze the bottle a little bit you will still get a lot of product out. The first time I used this I was using the normal amount of “force” that I use with any other shampoo bottle, and ended up filling my entire palm full of product in a second. Luckily I managed to get the product back into the bottle, but be careful with this if you decide to try this product.
Moving on to the conditioner. This product is paraben and silicon free. I have tried similar products before and found them to e really drying for my hair, but this product is not. I feel that it gives me a lot of moisture and after using the shampoo and conditioner together I really notice a difference of the condition of my hair. It is softer and not as dry, so I think these two products keep their promises. Another positive aspect of the shampoo and conditioner is the packaging. Both bottles are designed so that they can stand both upright and upside down, which comes in handy once you start running out of product. A big plus in my eyes!
My favorite product of this line is definitely the hair mask! After the first time I used this I was completely hooked, and I have been implementing this into my hair care routine once a week ever since. It has a really thick, creamy consistency, and a lovely scent of shea butter.
The jar sais to leave it in for 3 minutes and the rinse it out, but what I’ve been doing is that after I shampoo my hair I get out of the shower, apply this generously all over my hair and tie it into a bun on top of my head. Then I put a plastic bag over my hair and secure it with a hair tie, and then put a woolly hat on top for added heat. The plastic bag keeps the hair and product from drying out and the hat provides heat which help activate the product.
I usually keep this on for about 45-60 minutes while I do a facial and shave my legs, and then I take everything off and rinse it out in the shower. This leaves my hair feeling so incredibly soft! It’s truly an amazing feeling, and once my hair is dry it doesn’t feel weighed down. It’s just airy, soft and shiny. What more could a girl want?
I give this line a 4 out of 5 in overall grade. I recommend these products if you have dry hair or just want a paraben and silicon free alternative that doesn’t dry your hair out. And for the low price I think these products are really, really good. I would definably repurchase all of these products, but especially the hair mask is going to stay in my hair care routine for a long, long time!
I hope you have enjoyed this review! If you have tried any of these products, please leave a comment below with your thoughts :)
