GARNIER FRUCTIS REPAIRING TREAT WITH PAPAYA EXTRACT

Price: ~$5/6
100mL
I personally have fine hair and unfortunately, because I like to dye and curl it, has become drier (especially since it's winter now) and has a lot of split ends. Additionally, I use purple shampoo to help cancel out brassiness in my hair, which also dries my hair out as well! That's why I was really excited when Garnier reached out to me and asked if I wanted to review the Garnier Fructis Repairing Treat with Papaya Extract :D  I'll give everything a shot if it can repair my hair haha 

**Product was sent to me by the Garnier team, but my thoughts are all my own and honest!

Review: 

Garnier Fructis Repairing Treat with Papaya Extract claims to be a 3-in-1 product: 
  • 1 Minute hair mask 
  • Conditioner
  • Leave In Conditioner
I must say that I agree with this statement! I can either choose to use it as a hair mask and let it sit for a bit longer, quickly as a conditioner, or after my shower when my hair is still a bit damp as a leave in. Either way, the product works nicely softening my hair and making it super smooth. 

My initial reaction was that the product felt creamy and immediately made my hair really soft! I left it in for roughly a minute + and then rinsed. I could tell right away that my hair felt smoother, silkier and more hydrated. I was surprised because the mask isn't super thick. I usually associate thicker conditioners/masks as a more heavy duty one. Despite the thinner texture, it did a really great job hydrating. 

My prefered way is leaving it on for a prolonged time as a hair mask or as a leave in. My only gripe is that the packaging can be difficult to use in the shower. I personally don't turn the water off as I apply it and water can easily get into the tub because I use my fingers to scoop it out. 

The smell, however, is my FAVOURITE part! It smells like Strawberry Hi-Chu Candy :D Especially when you rinse it out of your hair the whole shower smells like strawberries :) 

However, after the initial few uses, I couldn't tell if any of split ends had mended. I don't know in the long term if this product helps with repairing split ends but will definitely keep your hair hydrated. In turn, I think that will help prevent new ones, or making existing ones worse. 

Compared to the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser 

I must say that the Damage Eraser is thicker and comes with more product, but requires much longer time for your hair to feel as hydrated as the Repairing Treatment felt. 
The Damage Eraser requires me to put my conditioned hair into a shower cap and for me to leave the shower to lounge for a bit. The Repairing Treatment works much faster and there's no need to leave the shower. By the time I'm done washing up, my hair is hydrated! 
The Repairing Treatment is great for me because I don't have the time to leave a hair mask on and lounge. Especially in the mornings, I have less than 10 minutes to shower! 

Pros: 

  • Great ingredients
    • 98% naturally derived ingredients
    • Ingredients list is filled with natural oils great for your hair 
    • Papaya extract 
  • Hair feels really silky/hydrated after first use 
  • Works very quickly - only needs to be left on for 1 minute 
  • Smells like strawberry Hi-Chu Candy!!!!
  • Multi-purposeful 
    • Hair Mask
    • Conditioner
    • Leave in conditioner

Cons: 

  • Heavily fragranced 
  • Not as much product as you would get in other hair mask tubs
  • Unsure if the product will "repair" split ends
  • Packaging is not the best - water can splash into the product easily.
