I first saw the Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food advertised in an American magazine last year, so I was thrilled to see them released over here this year. I find hair masks just as pampering as face masks and even though I don't use them as regularly as I should, I do still like to use them as often as I can.
There are four different Hair Foods available, including Papaya for damaged hair, Banana for dry hair and the two I have here, Coconut for frizzy hair and Aloe Vera for normal hair. I really wanted the Banana as I love anything Banana-scented but unfortunately it was sold out when I ordered these online.
The Garnier Ultimate Blends Moisturising Hair Food Aloe Vera and Coconut smells incredibly fresh and is the correct formula for normal hair types. The pots that the masks come in are pretty big, and provide you with 390ml of product so it is excellent value for money. They do advertise as 3-in-1 products, with you being able to use them as a Conditioner, a Mask or a Leave-In Conditioner, and so it really is your preference, however I prefer to use them as a regular mask. All you have to do is leave the mask on for three minutes before rinsing off if you are using it as a traditional hair mask, and so the treatment is super quick and can be used in the bath or shower. The Aloe Vera fragrance is just so dreamy, and it is perfect for a refreshing addition to your hair care routine throughout Spring and Summer.
Moving on to the Garnier Ultimate Blends Smoothing Hair Food Coconut & Macadamia, this one is for frizzy and unruly hair, and whilst my hair isn't crazily frizzy, this has helped to smooth it down. I normally love anything coconut-scented, but for some reason this doesn't have that fresh Summery scent to it, and so it isn't my favourite scent of the two. The masks are quite thick and creamy and a little goes a long way, especially if you are using them as a leave-in conditioner as you don't need to use as much product as you would if you were using it as a hair mask. Once you rinse the mask off, I found that there was no residue left over, so there was no greasiness or oiliness or build-up like there sometimes can be with hair products. Just great conditioned, clean hair!
The Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Foods cost £6.99 each and you can find them in-store and online at Boots here.
