Garnier is one of my favourite drugstore brands, the skincare range is affordable and has many effective products, I have also used their some items from their body care range and I liked that too. Their haircare range however I approach with caution because I have natural afro hair and most likely some of the items may not be geared towards my hair texture and type.
To date, I have only used the Garnier Mystic Olive Oil collection which was gifted to me and I really like it. You can find my reviews here. A few years ago, I went to a Garnier event and I was gifted some more hair products, because of my good previous experience with them, I was actually looking forward to the products.
The Maple Healer collection is made for very damaged hair and has castor oil and maple sap to revitalise and intensely repair the hair. The Intense Repairer conditioner has no parabens and promises to leave the hair feeling stronger.
I was given the shampoo, conditioner and balm which I have been using slowly. The conditioner comes in a huge 400ml tube and has a creamy texture. It smells great lingers for a while but isn’t overpowering.
I find that the conditioner has enough slip for me to detangle with. I have natural 4c hair which is thick, shrinks and gets tangled quite easily. This conditioner helps me smooth my hair and run my comb through it. I leave it on for 5 – 10 mins before rinsing. It really makes a difference! My hair is left soft and feels conditioned
I have to admit I have been quite lazy with my hair and washing it every 2 weeks instead of weekly. This means going into wash days, my hair is usually quite dry (I do slick buns), so I can really tell a difference in the feel of my hair. I really like this conditioner. If this is the only conditioner left in stores and wondering how it will work for our hair, get it, it works. I also really liked the intense balm (review on my Instagram). I’m yet to try the shampoo.
Garnier Maple Healer Conditioner is £3.99
We are leaving in a time where things aren’t normal and won’t be for a while, but we will get through this!
