I recently received a set of Garnier ColorShield hair care products from Influenster to review. Included in the box was
- Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo for colour treated hair
- Garnier Fructis Color Shield Conditioner for colour treated hair
- Garnier Fructis Color Shield Heat Protect & Shine Spray for colour treated hair
Garnier Color Shield Shampoo & Conditioner for colour treated hair
Stop dry out, fight fade out even after 45 washes! Color Shield Shampoo & Conditioner keeps colour bold and brilliant, hair silky and soft. Their unique, double-action formulas combines acai berry, a natural antioxidant that protects colour, and grapeseed oil, which prevents dryness. Garnier Fructis Color Shield is proven to perform.
This shampoo is a light pink colour and lathers well with a sweet smell. My hair still felt a little greasy while washing, likely due to the grapeseed oil but did not look greasy once dry. The conditioner is light and did not weigh my hair down but also did not leave it frizzy which often happens when my hair feels softer and has more volume.
Garnier Fructis Color Shield Heat Protect & Shine Spray for colour treated hair
Protects against heat damage and boosts shine & vibrancy. Formulated with camelia seed oil and acai berry extract, garnier Fructis Color Shield spray’s unique technology defends freshly coloired hair against heat and nourishes to extend shine and softness. This complete defence product helps your fresh colour to last longer, protects against heat damage and boosts shine & vibrancy – for hair that shines with all its strength.
A little goes a long way with this spray, otherwise it will leave your hair feeling greasy. My hair seemed to straighten more easily and you can almost feel the barrier on your hair protecting it as you straighten. My hair is normally quite frizzy after drying and you can see from the image above that it was more wavy than frizzy after just blow-drying and straightened with less passes which also helps with protecting m hair from heat.
I like this product but will likely stick to Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser for shampoo/conditioner and only buy the Heat Protect & Shine Spray as it seems to work well for my hair. The Damage Eraser seems to clean my hair better and not leave it feeling as greasy (even though it looks clean).
Full disclosure: we were only give a week to review this and my hair takes a while to get used to get used to new hair products and it is not enough time to review its colour shield properties of 45 washes. These products were received free of charge from Influenster but I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own
