Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser...Mystery Brand Revealed!
A few weeks ago I applied with Influenster to try out a new hair product line. When it was agreed that my hair needed a rescue, I was sent a sweet-smelling package with three little bottles inside. My job was to then use this product and save my hair from the winter blues!
The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out which brand I was using. I can honestly say that the first time I used the Mystery Brand shampoo, I thought it smelled just like the shampoo my hair stylist uses. I mean, that's not saying much since I go to the department store of hair stylists where I get a fairly decent cut from a lady who can remember my name even though I only see her about twice a year. Yes, I am a hair neglecter. I even cut my own bangs - but that's a whole other blog post!
I just can't rationale spending $50+ on my hair at a stuffy, uncomfortable salon where they try to up-sell you on coconut water butt infusions or something. I mean, I'm sure a coconut water butt infusion is lovely, but I'll stick with my simple cut and blow dry. I'm easy to please.
I thought the shampoo and conditioner samples I was sent were lovely (especially since I usually get mis-matched hair products - whatever I can find on clearance). They complemented each other well and I felt like I got a pretty decent hair cleaning out of them.
My favourite product out of the samples had to be the split end serum. My hair has taken a lot of abuse lately with my Psoriasis treatments. Having the extra protection when I blow dried my hair was very much needed. I even wore my hair down for the first time in months after using this product. It gave me some much needed split end confidence.
After the trial, I was convinced I was using some salon brand that I would never be able to afford again.
Imagine my surprise when this box came in the mail a week later containing a brand that I am in fact familiar with, but that I had actually just purchased a product from the week before the trial began! I was so relieved to know that should I continue to use this product, I can purchase it from any regular old store and not some over-priced salon!
I am really enjoying this product. Like I said before, I usually go for on sale items so having a whole set of one product made me feel pretty spoiled! My favourite thing about the product would have to be the smell. I am pretty big on scents and the smell of this product just smells clean and natural. I was a little worried because I do have a very sensitive scalp (especially in the winter) but I had no problems using these products!
My least favourite product would have to be (sadly) the reconstructing butter. Mostly because I am usually in a hurry in the shower. Usually when I have to leave products on my hair for 3-5 minutes it's because it is a medicated product for my scalp psoriasis. I am a little too impatient to leave a product on that long unless it is medically necessary. I wish they could build it in to the shampoo/conditioner or have it as a separate leave-in. Although the split end serum does pretty well on its own.
