Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Review

My hair is insane. That's putting it mildly...I am constantly throwing my hair up in a ponytail just because I get tired of having to control the frizz. As a mom of 2 small boys I just DO NOT have the time to primp my hair like I need to in order to gain back control.
I have found products that work but they are expensive (not to mention most are salon brand), and we have to be frugal. These times are hard, and the economy is still not at it's finest. Finances tend to get a bit strapped (mostly all the time) so spending ten dollars on one bottle of shampoo and another ten on a bottle of conditioner is just not ideal for me.
I was really excited when I was given the option to try out Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo & conditioner through BzzAgent. I have tried out the Garnier Fructis products before but never the Sleek and Shine line.

Before I go any further let me give you some of the info about the products to give you an idea::

Contains- Ultra smoothing Argan Oil from Morocco & Apricot Oil
Locks out frizz for a full 3 days even in 97% humidity
Gets hair 10X Smoother (when used with the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine System)
Best used for Frizzy, Dry, Unmanageable Hair

::My Thoughts::
The shampoo lathers really well and leaves behind a fresh fruity scent. I was a little worried that it would make my hair feel greasy after use since the shampoo has the texture of a serum, but it actually smoothed my hair better than any shampoo I have used thus far. When used with the Sleek & Shine Conditioner my hair turned out soft, manageable, and smelling great. I noticed a huge difference in manageability within the first wash, and have had 95% less trouble with frizz. The shampoo has a stronger scent than the conditioner, but they are both easy to rinse out. When using the shampoo and conditioner it made a huge difference with my thick hair and I noticed it was much easier to brush. Not to even mention the fact that my hair was actually shiny for once when usually it's like a frizzy lion's mane. Both products work best when used together, and when you rub from the roots of your hair to the tips. That method certainly gave me the best results.
I do find that the shampoo goes very fast compared to the conditioner, but then this is something I usually always have a problem with due to the thickness of my hair. I always have to use more shampoo to cleanse than conditioner to condition. The conditioner seems to stretch out longer for some odd reason.

I will admit after reading about the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine system I did give the Anti-Frizz Serum a try on my own which I did purchase, and which reinforced the NO frizz factor. I loved that fact, and after just one use my hair still did not take on that greasy feel you sometimes get when applying hair care products one after the other. Now I did notice a greasy feel by the next day, but as long as you wash your hair every day or every other day you shouldn't run into this problem (depending on the thickness, texture, and length of your hair of course).

All in all I would say my experience with the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine System was a positive one. I got the salon effect without having the pay the salon price. I was impressed that the shampoo and conditioner actually did what it promised to do, and I would recommend it to all my readers who have frizzy, dry, unmanageable hair. Plus it's easy to find and is sold is mass retailers, grocery stores, drug stores, etc. Just take a gander around your hair care isle and your sure to find it there. The shampoo and conditioner is definitely one of my personal favorites, and I don't see myself using anything else to tame this mane in the near future. If it ain't broke don't fix it right? :)
