I've been apart of Influenster for a long time but I wasn't really active until recently. I was one of the lucky ones chosen to receive and test out the Garnier Frucits Color Shield Box though. This box comes with three products so let's see what they are.
What's in the Box
1. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shampoo | 384ml
2. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Conditioner | 384ml
3. Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shine & Care Spray | 150ml
My Hair Routine
My hair care routine is pretty simple. I usually just shampoo and condition and sometimes apply a hair essence at the end. I wash my hair every day so its exposed to heat daily when I blow dry it. My hair in general is fine and straight with very little volume to it. I'm very low maintenance with my hair so when I got the opportunity to try these products out, I was excited because I've been trying to make an effort to take care of my hair more.
I've only recently colored my hair to a dark black brown because I was bored with my black hair color and wanted a subtle change. Since my hair is so dark naturally, I decided to just lighten it a bit by coloring it a dark black brown. Its important to have my hair color last as long as possible because I don't want to have to fuss over it and color it again and again which can be damaging in the long run. The main threats to the upkeep of my hair color are exposure to the heat from styling tools and the sun.
These products claim to have an advanced anti-oxidant complex combined with UV filters to strengthen hair and to protect against the top three causes of color fade: heat from styling tools, water, and the sun. Your hair color is suppose to stay fresher, bolder and brighter for even longer, week after week using them.
When I first opened and smelled all of the products, I was really happy with them because they smell fruity which is one of the scents I love. The Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner were both nice. The shampoo lathered well and made my hair feel clean after rinsing it out. The conditioner coated my hair well and it felt pretty moisturizing. As for making my hair color stay more vibrant and lasting longer, I did see a difference. I've noticed that my hair color isn't fading as much and is appearing more glossy when I finish drying my hair.
My favorite product out of the box has to be the Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shine & Care Spray. At first glance, I thought it was going to be pretty oily on the hair. When I sprayed it on, I was so surprised with how lightweight and non greasy it felt in my hair. It moisturized my hair, gave it a bit of shine, and made it smell really good. The scent wasn't too overpowering too. It was a pleasant light coconut fruity scent. Most leave in products I've tried have always felt heavy on my hair but this isn't. Its definitely a product I might look into repurchasing, I like it that much.
Overall, I was really happy testing all three hair products out. Garnier Frucits has always been one of my favorite hair product brands so its great to see and try out a new line of products from them. They do a pretty good job on making my hair color staying vibrant and lasting longer. These products are great even if my hair wasn't colored just because I love the smell on all of them. Anything that makes my hair feel clean, moisturized and glossy is something I would look into repurchasing in the future too.
So, I Lisa Ng give my "shield of approval" on these products. #ColorShield
