Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo & Conditioner

I've been testing out a new shampoo & conditioner from Garnier Fructis. This opportunity popped up through a BzzAgent campaign. When I first got the invite, I was a little skeptical about this being new since the packaging and all the claims seemed unchanged, but nonetheless it was exciting since I love trying out new products.

Like usual, the BzzKit came in a small box that was sealed by the trademark BzzAgent bee tape. Here's what was included.

~ Official BzzGuide
~ 1 Triple Nutrition Shampoo for Dry, Damaged Hair
~ 1 Triple Nutrition Conditioner for Dry, Damaged Hair

The two bottles were neatly packaged inside a ziplock bag, which I thought was very thoughtful of the Bzz team.

And here's a few facts from the BzzGuide:

~ Works best on dry or damaged hair
~ Nourish hair to the core so it shines from within
~ Forumlated with Fortified Fruit Science - three weightless nutritive fruit oils (olive, avocado, and shea)
~ Packed with ultra-rich and nourishing conditioners that rinse clean - we dare you to find something that treats your dry damaged hair better

Okay, so my hair falls into the dry and damaged category no doubt about it. I used to dye my hair all the time. At one point, I dyed it every other week. Bad I know. Sue me. So after all that chemical mayhem I put my hair through, it's quite unfriendly to me now, so I'm always a sucker for new products that promise to help me make peace with it. I've been using this on and off for the past few weeks.

Why on and off? Well, my scalp has been really, really dry lately which is making me flake too. This shampoo/conditioner combo definitely does not help with that, but it's not like it promised to. When I did use this though, I had mixed feeling about the results. On one hand, it moisturized my hair, smelled fabulous, and made my hair shiny. All Garnier Fructis products smell delicious and this was no exception. On the other, I couldn't keep up my routine of washing my hair every other day. I found my hair to get oilier faster and when my hair gets oily out of my schedule it can get bothersome. I think this has to do with what's in both products and you can tell from the texture. To me it seems the shampoo and conditioner have a lower viscosity than the average shampoo/conditioner and I'm attributing it to the natural fruity oils. This isn't bad by any means, it's just bad for me right now with the stage my hair is at. This would be great for really, REALLY super dry hair. On a side note, I will definitely try this out again when the winter weather arrives to wreck havoc on my hair.

If you'd like to try this out here's a coupon for you. :3c

I'm proud to be a BzzAgent. Not familiar with BzzAgent? BzzAgent is a social marketing company that distributes products to it's members, let's them try it out, and asks them to Bzz about it. Bzz can be anything from face-to-face conversations to discussion through online social media. One of my favorite things about the company (besides trying out goodies) is that they want members to keep their opinions as honest as possible, so negative opinions or experiences are still welcomed. You aren't always going to love new products and it's great that they understand that. Oh yeah, did I mention it's also free to join? Check it out here. To be eligible for campaigns, you must fill out surveys in order to determine if you fit into the demographic, and if you do, they'll email you an invite to the campaigns you fit into.
