After reviewing the shampoo and conditioner from the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition range (check review HERE), I am reviewing another great product from the same range of Garnier.
Garnier Fructis Oil-in-cream is supposed to be a new generation hair oil, containing the benefits of three oils- coconut, almond and olive oil.
Price: Rs 60 for 100 g, Rs 100 for 200g
What it claims
A nourishing hair oil in a light creamy texture. 0% sticky, this light texture cream gets absorbed quickly. Easy to use without messiness of hair oils which includes sticky hair, greasy hair, staining and smell.
Garnier Fructis Oil-in-cream Review
This product comes in a squeeze tube packaging with flip open cap. The cap is sturdy, leak proof and travel friendly. The yellow color of the tube is signature of its Triple Nutrition range.
The fragrance of this cream is strong and fruity which lingers for a day or two, depending on whether you use this product before or after hair wash.
The consistency of this oil-in-cream is really creamy. It is milky white in color, similar to the conditioner of this range. I have used this product two ways- pre hair wash as hair oil and after hair wash as leave in conditioner.
Pre Hair wash: If you use it as a replacement for hair oil, dollops of this cream will be used depending on your hair length. This cream does not leave the hair sticky or greasy at all. My hands were not greasy after the application either. But it does leave the hair looking like one has applied gel, minus the hardness/crunchiness. It leaves the hair really soft and smooth after the hair wash. You can apply this cream just before you wash your hair, or overnight.
I wouldn’t say this product can replace hair oil altogether, because in addition to smooth hair that the hair oils promise, massaging of scalp with the oil is equally important in my opinion. And if you attempt to massage with this cream, I am sure the whole tube will get used up in one application only. Plus it is loaded with chemicals which normal hair oils are not, so deep nourishment is out of question.
Post Hair wash: I used a coin sized quantity for application on damp hair just after washing. It did make my hair smooth and really soft to touch. It controls frizziness to an extent. It however did not help in detangling of hair at all. But then this is not a serum and does not claim it either. This product shows its magic only after the hair has dried!
Overall, this is a really great innovation for women on the go. It does make the hair really really soft and smooth. I wouldn’t say this product can replace hair oil altogether, but it is a wonderful product on its own, especially on days you don’t have time for a good oil massage. It is easy on pocket, has amazing fragrance and live upto its claims. I would definitely recommend it.
