      The Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Blow Dry Perfector is extremely cheap, but unlike other products in the Garnier range, it is cheap for a reason. This stuff costs around $10, but is a complete waste of money.

      First off, the cream or serum that you put on your hair smells dreadful. Garnier products are known for their fruity tropical great smelling products that you want in your hair. This one, however, smells awful. The smell is kind of like rotten

      eggs or sulfur and it permeates everywhere. There is no disguising the fact that you are using it, everyone in your home will know about it.

      The cream is to be applied after washing your hair and then left on for 20 minutes. During this time, you and everyone else has to endure the smell. After 20 minutes, you are running to wash it off, though the instructions say to wash it out without shampoo or conditioner. Here is the first problem. When you wash it out without shampoo or conditioner, instantly your hair feels like straw. No matter how well conditioned your hair was before, all of a sudden, it feels as if it is just going to break off there and then.

      Notwithstanding the straw like consistency and difficulty in combing through the hair, the next step is to apply a second cream. At least this makes the hair slightly easier to comb through and starts to make the hair smell ...

      less like rotten eggs. It feels at this point as if perhaps the hair is not as damaged as first thought, and perhaps the second step is conditioning it.

      Not so, even after blow drying the hair, you can tell it has been damaged. Once conditioned hair is now dry and brittle. Hair once strong starts to break off leaving broken fly aways all over the head, and you still have to use a flat iron to achieve straight hair. So

      what is the point of this??

      Also, drying time does not seem to be shortened as claimed and hair is still sticking up.

      Another negative is that each time the hair is washed again, the sulfur rotten egg smell comes back. It is as if it is reactivated each time.

      So in summary, if your hair is left dry, damaged and rough feeling, and if you still have to use all the same products plus blow dryer plus flat iron, why would you ever try putting this on your hair?
