Sensitive skin alert
What does the brand claim about Garnier Ultra Blends Soy Milk and Almonds Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner?
The brand claims the shampoo and conditioner to be made from soy milk and almonds, a combination of which protects hair from further damage and repairs and strengthens them, making your feel soft with every wash. The brand claims the shampoo and conditioner to be paraben free.
How to use:
The shampoo and conditioner is easy to use.
You just need to apply shampoo onto wet hair, forming a rich lather and rinse it off with water.
Once done, remove excess water from hair and apply a generous amount of conditioner from mid length to end and let it stay for 3-4 minutes. And wash off with water.
My experience with Garnier Ultra Blends Soy Milk and Almonds Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner
This lovely smelling shampoo and conditioner is one of the latest additions to my hair care product list. The shampoo and conditioner come in attractive white color bottle, bearing the branding and other essentials. The shampoo and the conditioner smell amazing and so fresh and that fragrance actually lingers on and lasts for a day or two making your feel and smell good. The bottle has a leaf on the opening which makes the shampoo and conditioner look attractive and stand out from the rest. Also these products are free from paraben and are made from natural extracts
But that is not enough
The shampoo claims to be effective in repairing damaged hair and making it feel soft. It does live up to the brand’s claim but not totally. I have frizzy and dry hair to which this shampoo doesn’t provide adequate moisture. It does make my hair feel soft but it did nothing to control the frizz. Also the consistency of the shampoo is runny and liquid and is not heavy/thick like other shampoos. However, it forms a rich lather. As far as cleansing the hair and scalp is concerned it might not absolutely clean your hair in one wash and you might need to wash it again if you have oiled your hair.You will have to use the conditioner if you want to make sure your hair looks manageable as this shampoo doesn’t really provide enough moisture to dry and frizzy hair.
The conditioner is thick and one would definitely need a good amount of quantity to spread it onto the hair and let it stay for 3-4 minutes. The shampoo provides average conditioning and makes hair feel a little manageable.
For me the soy milk and almonds intense repair shampoo from garnier’sultra blends range have been average.

Overall would I recommend or repurchase?
I would recommend this shampoo to people with normal hair types having moderately damaged hair as this shampoo and conditioner would provide them with adequate care and attention. But For people with dry/frizzy hair, this shampoo does little to address your problems, so I would suggest them to look for other effective products.
So before you buy this product read and know its pros and cons! And buy only if it fits your purpose. 🙂
Hope this helps
