New Haircare Buy: Garnier Hair Food Review

Garnier Hair Food Review

When I was researching for products to use during my curly hair journey, I kept coming across people raving about the Garnier Hair Food range and since they are so affordable, of course I had to jump on the trend and try them out for myself.

As I usually only co-wash my hair (if you've not looked up the benefits of this, then I've just put you on), I decided to pick up two of their 3-in-1 nourishing hair treatments and two of their conditioners. I've been using them for just over a month now, so I thought I'd share my thoughts for if any of you are looking for some new hair products and are considering trying out the range!

3-in-1 Hair Treatment

Who doesn't love a multi-functional product? This hair treatment can be used as either a conditioner, mask or leave-in specifically for dry hair, but I just use it as a leave-in because I've found that's what it works best as for me. After I've washed or refreshed my curls and applied a small amount of oil, I then seal it in with this product and it leaves my hair soft and manageable throughout the day.

I picked up two of these, one in banana and shea and one in papaya and amla. The scent of the banana and shea one is what sealed the deal for me. Do you remember those little chewy banana sweets you used to get at the pick-and-mix as a kid? (or still as an adult when you go to the cinema... no shame). This is exactly what the product smells like! The papaya and amla treatment also smells amazing but has a much more subtle scent. The only downside to both of these products is that the scent doesn't transfer to your hair so it's pretty useless, but it smells nice during the process.

Overall, I majorly prefer the papaya and amla treatment which is said to be for damaged hair over the banana and shea one which is said to be for dry hair as the consistency is a bit thicker and helps penetrate the hair cuticles a bit more. So when I come to repurchasing, I'll be repurchasing the papaya and amla treatment over the other.


Because I loved the smell of both the 3-in-1 treatments so much, I decided to also pick up the matching conditioners which smell the exact same. Now, I'm not sure if it's because I'm totally obsessed with the Cantu cream conditioner that I use (if you've got curly hair and you haven't tried this yet, it's a game changer), but these conditioners just weren't doing it for me.

I don't think there's much difference between the two as I achieved similar results after using both, unlike the 3-in-1 treatments, but I just didn't find that they left my hair as soft as my regular conditioner. Saying that, I'm still using them until they run out as I think it's good to always switch up which products you use every now and again so your hair doesn't just get used to one formula. Will I repurchase it? Probably not, but it's good for now.

Have you tried any of the Garnier Hair Foods range? If so, what were your thoughts? Let me know!
