♥ Garnier Respons Shampoo Avocado Oil & Shea Butter Review

Garnier Respons Shampoo Avocado Oil & Shea Butter Review

I mentioned in this empties post featuring the conditioner that I bought these when I was in Sweden, because I travelled with hand luggage only and couldn't bring anything else. They are both silicone and paraben free which is great, however the shampoo does contain Sulfates.

Shampoo- It is quite fragranced and lathers up quite a lot. If it dries my hair or not I can't really say because I always do a hot oil treatment before shampooing, especially if I for some reason use a Sulfate one. However after coming back from Sweden my scalp was quite itchy so it could well be from using a harsh shampoo. For someone who uses Sulfate shampoos and don't have a sensitive scalp, I'd say go for it. I will still use this for when I need sulfate shampoo though.
CONCLUSION: Use this once a month or so to remove hair product buildup or when you've used products containing silicones.

Conditioner- To start with, a ridiculously small bottle for a conditioner. You afro haired girls know that one wash requires the equivalent of this bottle lol. I guess for people with straight hair it's okey. Anyway the formula is a bit hard, by hard I mean it feels similar to when you put a protein treatment in your head. Not sure why since it doesn't contain any proteins. The ingredients are pretty decent and it contains Stearamido-Propyl Dimethylamine which is an antistatic agent that can also be used as a mild cleanser.
CONCLUSION: Great if you are a co-washer (a person who uses conditioner to wash their hair)! It contains nourishing oils at the top and a few gentle cleansing agents at the bottom of the ingredient list.

Have you seen Garnier's Shea Butter & Avocado Oil products? I've only seen them in Sweden.
