I’ve had mixed results with the Garnier Fructis brand. The first time I tried one of their product lines was about a year-and-a-half ago. It was not too long after their Honey Treasures Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner from Garnier’s Whole Blends hair care line came out. However, that shampoo and conditioner wreaked havoc on my hair! About a year later, I tried the Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Finishing Paste as a fluke and ended up liking it!
I never really tried anything else from their line until my sister gave me a bottle of their Marvelous Oil for Dry, Damaged Hair a while ago. I’ve been using it for the last year. Unfortunately, I just never really had the time to write a blog post about it or do a video review. But, I definitely think it’s worth a mention. I have since transitioned to using Garnier’s Miraculous Oil for Dry to Very Dry Hair because I couldn’t find their Marvelous Oil for Dry, Damaged Hair locally. I do prefer the Marvelous Oil over the Miraculous Oil, but both are still quite good. What I like best about these products is that they are multitaskers. They act as a (1) pre-shampoo treatment, (2) conditioner booster, (3) blow-dry accelerator, (4) ends finisher, and (5) overnight leave-in.
To use it as a pre-shampoo treatment, just apply the product to wet or dry hair before shampooing your hair. The Miraculous Oil acts as a primer to ensure gentle cleansing. Need a conditioner booster? Add a few drops of the oil to your fave conditioner to improve detangling. If you would prefer a blow-dry accelerator, apply the Miraculous Oil to damp hair to expedite the blow dry process. Your hair will dry faster than it would with a creamy leave-in. As an ends finisher, apply the oil to damp or dry hair to smooth frayed ends and tame flyaways. If an overnight leave-in is more your style, just work the product through wet or dry hair and leave in overnight to help restore suppleness and softness to your tresses.
So far I have used the Miraculous Oil as a pre-shampoo treatment, conditioner booster, and ends finisher. My hair simply loves this miracle elixir. I love the custom blend of ingredients, too! I especially like the inclusion of sweet almond oil, olive oil, avocado oil, sunflower seed oil, and rosemary leaf extract.

Ingredients

1041671 Fs5 Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Parfum/Fragrance, Linalool, Limonene, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil/Sweet Almond Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil/Olive Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima Oil/Avocado Oil, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Sunflower Seed Oil, Ci 75130/Beta-Carotene, Tocopherol, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract/Rosemary Leaf Extract, Citric Acid. F.I.L.# D191042/1

It added shine to my hair without weighing it down or leaving behind any greasy residue. It also really helped to transform my dry, dull hair. The oil is super light and is easily absorbed by my hair. I like to sandwich it between my other hair products, (i.e., my hair moisturizer or thicker hair butters like mango butter and shea butter). While this oil smells amazing (slightly fruity with citrus undertones), it contains a high amount of fragrance (in terms of of quantity relative to other ingredients). Nonetheless, the texture is perfect … not overly thick (like castor oil) and not super thin (like extra virgin olive oil) … The pump top also provides greater control during application.

PROS

♥ Oil is lightweight and easily absorbed by hair.

♥ Oil does not leave any greasy residue.

♥ Oil treats dry, dull, and damaged hair.

♥ Oil multitasks as a pre-shampoo treatment,  conditioner booster, blow-dry accelerator, ends finisher, and overnight leave-in.

♥ Oil has a pleasant texture and smell.

♥  Pump top provides control for easy application.

 

 

CONS

 If you have type 3 or 4 hair, you may still need to follow up with a heavy butter like mango or shea like I did.

 Contains “dimethiconol,”  a silicone-based polymer.

– Contains a high amount of fragrance.
