Garnier Ultimate Blends- conditioners review. Worth trying?

Hi guys:) Today I’m going to tell you more about 2 conditioners that you can easily get at drugstores in the UK.  I bought my Garnier Ultimate Blends products about 7 months ago at Superdrug, just for 2 pounds each.  I think it’s really OK for 400 ml of product, but it’s not a regular price.
I’ve chosen two:

 

  • Sleek Restorer Conditioner with coconut oil and cocoa butter,
  • Marvellous Transformer Conditioner with argan and camellia oils.
    I like the packaging, despite the fact it’s quite big, it’s also light and handy.
    The consistency of conditioner is nice and silky. Not very thick, but not too watery, it stays on hair with no problem.
    I was using these products regularly for some time. They were great in the beginning, but unfortunately,  I noticed that my hair started to look quite dry after a couple of weeks. I checked lists of ingredients (I don’t know, why I haven’t done it before) and they were not as perfect as I thought. For example, they both contain Isopropyl Alcohol– conservant which is never good for hair;( However, I’m still using these products,  but not at every washing.
    Sleek restorer version (coconut and cocoa butter) is silicone free so it doesn’t block hair against good ingredients. Sometimes I use it as the first conditioner.
    You can read more about that method  here: CLICK 
    The variant with argan and camellia oil has got one silicone (Amodimethicone), so it should cover the hair and help it to look smoother.
    And it’s true- both of these products worked pretty well- no tangles, hair was easy to brush and had a silky texture for some time.

    Advantages of conditioners:

  • lovely, not overwhelming  fragrance,
  • long lasting,
  • price,
  • common availability,
  • emollients are quite high on the ingredients list.
  • hair looks smoother.

    In my opinion, Garnier is a very good brand, one of the best you can find in supermarkets and drugstores. There is a great range of their products and you can often choose something nice.
    These conditioners are quite all right, but to be honest, lists of ingredients are not impressive.  Of course, there are oils, moisturisers and plant extracts, which are always great. However, we can also find some chemical additives that I would prefer to avoid.  Yes, they can make hair look silky and smooth, but they won’t nourish it deeply. If you have got low porosity hair Garnier Ultimate Blends should be really OK. If your hair is damaged and dry,  try not to use them every time – swap them with other, richer conditioners.

    Interesting to see that they aren’t suitable for every wash. My teen daughter recently got some of this because she has dry damaged hair, so haps I should warn her about your finds. I do agree they smell fab (and I do like a good smelling conditioner), and the price is good too.

    I used to use Garnier products! Now I have my favourite brand but I am looking for some changes from time to time, so thank you for recommending this one I might try again 🙂

    I’ve been really funny with shampoos and conditioners as my scalp reacts with a lot of soaps, I just bought Tresemme shampoo which has no silicone and parabens which, is the only brand name shampoo so far that hasn’t reacted with my head so far
