I am told, consistently, how "amazing thick hair is" and "how many fabulous hair styles you can do with thick hair." Though that may be true, I have wanted nothing other than thinner, easier to manage hair. Yes, I love that I don't ever have to use thickening creams or volumizing products and can go for three (even four) days without having to wash it BUT this is where the convenience ends. I use a handful of shampoo/conditioner every time I wash my hair, it takes ages to fully blow dry and a straightener will only straighten my locks if it's on the hottest setting. This means, you guessed it, that my hair is unbelievably over-processed and dry. Hence my need for a great shampoo/conditioner.
Unfortunately, Garnier Fructis Color Shield was not it.
Smells just like strawberry yogurt
Price is phenomenal at $5.99 per 750 mL
Prevents color from fading
Shampoo doesn't lather well
Shampoo doesn't fully clean the hair
Conditioner doesn't do anything, at all
Hair looks lackluster after use

Booo...I had such high hopes for this shampoo. Not only was the price phenomenal but I adored the strawberry yogurt smell. Trust me though, my friends, when I say to steer clear of this shampoo; try not to be sucked in with the fantastic pricing. I should have saved the $12 spent on these items and purchased something from the L'Oreal EverPure product line instead.
**PS - I should probably mention that my hair stylist, Alicja, who cut my hair into a really cute bob nearly died when I told her the type of shampoo I was using. She said that my hair was so dry because of it and ended up giving me a ton of salon shampoo/conditioner samples to take home. Thanks lady!**
