Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Shampoo Review

What is the most exciting thing about Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Shampoo? Of course the bright orange color of the bottle. The ‘Goodbye Damage’ claim is certainly one of the reasons that compelled me to purchase this product, but it is actually the vibrant packaging which captivated me at the very first moment. So, here is my review:

As I said before, Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Shampoo comes in a bright orange-colored bottle, which is really eye-catching. The shape of the bottle is quite unique. There is a small, round flip-open cap at the top of the bottle and it is dark green in color. All necessary information is printed on the body of the bottle with green, black and white, which give the packaging a whole new dimension.

The flip-cap sets tightly on the small opening of the bottle making it completely leakage-proof. Although I’ve the largest size of the product, the bottle can still be held in one hand easily and comfortably. I can’t take this bottle with me everywhere due to its size, but its’ smaller versions are absolutely travel-friendly. The only flaw of the packaging is that you can’t see how much product is left inside as the bottle is opaque. Otherwise, the overall packaging is very nice.

My Take on Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Shampoo:

The shampoo has a beautiful pearly white color and a pleasant fruity fragrance. The smell is very mild and shouldn’t bother sensitive noses. Though I expected a long-lasting aroma, it actually doesn’t last more than 45 to 60 minutes after application. The texture of the shampoo is silky smooth. Unlike other shampoos that are neither too thick nor too thin, Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Strengthening Shampoo has quite a runny consistency and hence, you need to be careful while pouring it onto your palm. It lathers very well and a little amount is enough for a complete wash. It also comes off very easily with water. So, using it has never been a pain for me.

Coming to the effects of the shampoo, it works fairly for my hair. Usually, I wash my hair thrice every week with this shampoo along with the conditioner from the same range. Honestly speaking, during the first 2 weeks of use, I was completely disappointed with the results. My hair has become severely damaged by pollution, dirt, dust, sunlight, and once-in-a-while straightening.  This shampoo did nothing to my dry, rough and frizzy hair within first 14 days. But after that, I found that my hair is getting smoother, softer and more manageable with every wash. It adds a little volume to my hair and gives it a light bounce. However, you shouldn’t expect silky smooth and shiny hair from this. Rather, it nourishes the hair from inside out and repairs damages to some extent. But repairing 2 years of damages in 2 weeks is not at all a true claim.
