My Hair Story & Happy Hair Challenge With Garnier

My Hair Story

Garnier has asked me to tell them how nourished my hair are? Dunno how to confess ...

But I remember mom telling me that I was born with black, lustrous, thick hair and used to get compliments not only from acquaintances, but even strangers/ unknown people used to admire my hair when mom took me to markets, parks or any gatherings :) I firmly believe that my hair quality and texture is highly influenced by genetic factors, but mom's precious homemade remedies also left an impression on how my hair remained glossy and thick till long years....

As I grew up, the environmental factors overpowered the genetic factors. The extremely harsh weather conditions (both in summer and winter season) did irretrievable damage to my hair as I drive my bike to work for almost 25 kms everyday. Despite of covering my head with a cotton scarf, my hair are crying for their bad state. :( Being in Education industry, I am compelled to bear the chalk-dust n grime on my head that ultimately settles on my scalp everyday and ruins the beauty of my hair :(
To add to the problem, dandruff is the gift of chill winter probably caused due to hot water head bath.

I feel muddled head to decide what kind of expectation my hair have from me so that they look full of life. I confess that I have compromise in my hair-care regimen, so suffering with under-nourished hair :(
Presently my hair concerns can be summed up as:
  • Weaker Roots causing hair fall
  • Lusterless and frizzy hair 
  • Mild Split Ends 
  • Dandruff 
Now that I have accepted the #HappyHairChallenge by Garnier, I have high hopes that the cool combo of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and conditioner is that 'tonic-for-hair' that will help my hair breathe life. I expect these products will reciprocate wonderfully to my hair with its tender formulation and will add a crisp dash of gorgeousness to my persona by improving the texture and quality of my hair, because I have always considered myself truly privileged to have a glittery 'Beauty Crown' on my head that makes me feel proud.

oops!! did I tell you that Garnier has already sent me the weapons to start my battle against my hair problems..

Take a quick look at the sunny bright Garnier product hamper that reached me last evening :)
First Impression of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner:
Both the products i.e. shampoo and conditioner have almost indistinguishable packaging ;) Bottled in sparky yellow packs with funky colorful textual description, the products appealed me in the first look itself.
The bottles have flip-open kinda cap that is prominently highlighted with a dark green opening on the top. And it is more convenient to open without piercing your nail into the cap outline that I generally need to do with most product packaging. The tightly shut bottle cap makes the packaging travel friendly.
Price, Quantity and Shelf Life:
Its really interesting to know that not only packaging, but the price & quantity of shampoo and conditioner have been kept similar. The shampoo and conditioner both come with an affordable price tag of 135 INR each for a quantity of 175 ml having shelf life of 36 months.
Talking about active ingredients that have gone into the formulation, I am more of confidently optimistic of the outcome of the shampoo and conditioner. Let me tell you why??

Like I shared earlier in the post, mom used to give me head massage with pure oils rich in nutritional value mainly coconut oil and almond oil (which I miss many a times these days). Now Garnier has combined the goodness of Coconut Oil, Almond Oil and Olive Oil together in one shampoo that is why we call it "TRIPLE NUTRITION" range i guess...

Look and Feel:
I love the mild fragrance on sweet note as I flipped open the shampoo bottle. The shampoo is of as appropriate consistency as suitable to generate fine lather (though I have not tested it yet). The conditioner is slightly thicker than shampoo somewhat like a gel. Both are white in color.

The brand claims that the power of triple nutrition in these products will restore healthy hair in original luster, volume and strength.

I am ready for 30 days #HappyHairChallenge by Garnier to tackle my hair problems. This has been the initial assessment of condition of my hair. I will start using the products tomorrow onwards and will evaluate the result twice in a duration of one month. I will be sharing my final evaluation at the end of one month. So wait for my next post, till then...
