Garnier Fructis Hydrating Aloe Vera Hair Food Mask, Shampoo and Contioner

I was eyeing the Garnier Hair Food products for a while, especially the hair masks. At first, I wanted the banana version but then I heard good things about the Aloe Vera one and I got this one instead. Firstly I got just the hair mask and it impressed me so much that I also wanted to test the shampoo and conditioner. Those were not available in Slovenia yet, I had to wait for them to get to the stores, and I finally bought them in DM. The whole line is for normal to dry hair.

Firstly I want to talk about the product that impressed me the most and is definitely the favourite out of the three products. The Hydrating Aloe Vera Hair Mask comes in a standard round plastic pot, that contains 390ml of product. I really like the design of all of the products, it simplistic but at the same time very interesting. This one is in a minty green colour.

The mask can be used as a 3in1 product, meaning you can use it as a conditioner, rinse-out hair mask or leave-in conditioner. I usually use it as a rinse-out hair mask, before I got the separate conditioner I also used it for that purpose. The mask smells great, I smell aloe vera and coconut. It's a very creamy and not-overly-sweet-but-kind-of-fresh scent. The texture is creamy and lightweight, it doesn't feel heavy.  For a change, I wanted to try something more hydrating rather than nourishing on my hair and my hair seems to like it. When I use it as a rinse-out mask I apply it a few hours before I wash my hair. I apply it on dry hair, it's easy to spread it through the hair because of the lightweight formula. When I was using the mask, I didn't change any other product and I did notice my hair being more manageable and not so dry-looking and dry-feeling.

The Hydrating Aloe Vera Shampoo comes in a green muted minty green coloured bottle that contains 350ml of product.  I love the design of the bottle, It looks like some kind of smoothie. With this one, I smell more aloe vera than by the hair mask. The texture is almost like jelly and on a thicker side but still not heavy feeling

This is the only product that I needed to test for a longer time because I wasn't sure about it when I tried it the first couple of times. I have a feeling it doesn't do the best job at cleansing my hair. Sometimes when I don't wash my hair for a good couple of days in this heat and all the sweating + using a hair mask before washing my hair, I have a feeling it doesn't cleanse everything, even though I use an anti-dandruff shampoo at first, so I even double-cleanse my hair. But if I don't use any rinse-our mask before, it's okay. It also doesn't feel like it does much to my hair right after when I wash it but later when it's dry my hair does look more hydrated and tamedI can't properly make up my mind about this shampoo, I will continue to use it up too see how it performs on a long run but I probably won't repurchase it.


Garnier Fructis Hydrating Aloe Vera Hair Food Conditioner


The Hydrating Aloe Vera Conditioner comes in the same design bottle as the shampoo, it's just white with a green sticker. This one also contains 350ml of product.

This one mostly smells like aloe vera but still a bit coconutty, the scent is somewhere in between the mask and the shampoo. The texture is quite lightweight. I'm used to Pantene hair conditioners that are very thick and hard to get out of the bottle, so it happened a few times when I just squeezed the bottle and everything burst out with this one. This is one of the products that you don't really need, I don't see huge results after using it. I do like it but you can use the mask version for the same thing and I think the mask has a better effect. So, I probably won't repurchase this one either, even though it's not bad.

Out of these three products the only one that I would 100% recommend is the mask. I really see a great effect on my hair. My hair can get very dry and frizzy and the mask helps a lot. The other two products are okay but not amazing. I still prefer my all-time-favourite L'Oreal's shampoo and as far as the conditioner goes, you just don't need it if you already have a mask because you can use the mask as a 3in1 treatment.

Thank you for reading!
