Garnier is probably one of my favourite drugstore brands, their skincare collection is budget-friendly and effective. I have never tried any of their haircare products, I tend to stick to products made for natural hair but I received a beautiful package from them last year (or was it the year before? its been a while basically) so I decided to give it ago. I have had the Garnier Ultimate Blends Mystic Olive Oil Collection for a while and I have been busy using it so I can how share my full thoughts on it and how it performs on natural afro hair
What is it?
The Garnier Ultimate Blends Mystic Olive Oil has been formulated for dry brittle hair and blended with virgin olive oil and safflower seed oil. Made with no parabens and promises to nourish and smooth hair without weighing it down. It leaves hair easier to detangle and soft to touch.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Mystic Olive Oil Collection has a shampoo, Rinse out conditioner and a hair balm/treatment
Garnier Ultimate Blends Mystic Olive Oil Shampoo
The shampoo has a lovely scent comes in a generous 360ml bottle. I wasn’t expecting much from this shampoo but I have been pleasantly surprised by it and I really like it. It suds up well, a little goes a long way and it helps me finger detangle my hair! I can tell it adds moisture to my hair as my curls look so defined with it! for a shampoo that suds up a lot, it doesn’t leave my hair and scalp dry at all. My hair is really left softer and well cleansed. This shampoo also works great on curly hair extensions and straight hair textures as well.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Mystic Olive Oil Conditioner & Hair Balm
I didn’t use the conditioners a lot on my hair because I didn’t expect much once again so when I did finally try it on my hair, I only had enough for two applications! It does provide enough slip to detangle with and really helps leave my hair soft and conditioned! I used this mostly on my wigs and it conditioned them really well and gave a lovely lustre to them. The balm does work like a hair mask/treatment so it penetrates deeper and left longer on the hair than the rinse out conditioner. (post explaining the difference between deep conditioners and conditioners here)
I really love this collection and the Olive Oil makes this superb for dry natural hair. My 4c hair is dry and very brittle so this collection was the perfect antidote for it. I wish I used the conditioners on my hair earlier so I could have benefited from them too but ah well my wigs got most of it. I love all 3 products but I think the shampoo a bit more as it leaves my hair super soft, cleansed and the fact that I can finger detangle with it is a huge bonus!
Do I approve it for natural afro hair? Yes and Yes! The products are very affordable and they work. They also work great for curly hair extensions so if you are looking for something to help maintain your extensions without drying them out (because most of the time shampoos and curly hair doesn’t go well) then this collection will work great.
