Current Hair Obsession — Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray
Many of you, especially those who follow me on Twitter or Facebook, know that I recently died my hair blond (hey, I’m an extremist with hair, so I tend to go from one side of the spectrum to the opposite end). And, while I love the new look, it does require a great deal of upkeep — from deep conditioners to hair masks and other nourishing, moisturizing treatments. The new Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray has become an absolute lifesaver for me, since I can just spritz some on to give my mane a boost. With its combination of olive oil, avocado oil, and shea oil, the mist hydrates hair and gives it a bit of shine — without making it feel greasy or sticky. I predict this being a must-have for the coming summer months, since I can just tuck the spray into my handbag (or beach tote) and touch up whenever my hair starts feeling a bit stiff or looking somewhat dull.
To use, you just hold the spray about six inches from the hair and spray, covering the entire area desired. What’s amazing about the spray is that it dries really quickly and really penetrates the hair shaft, so that you can run your fingers through your hair without your hands looking like you immersed them in a vat of oil. The olive oil in the formula not only boosts shine and conditions hair, but it’s rich in antioxidants that protect your sun from UV exposure. The avocado oil, meanwhile, softens hair with its concentration of potassium, and vitamins B,E and K. Lastly, the shea oil moisturizes and softens hair, helping to repair split ends and protecting hair from the havoc wrought by exposure to sun and other heat sources. Most importantly, this nutritive oil trifecta doesn’t just sit atop the hair (as happens with so many products) — thanks to the water base in the formula, the hair follicle is opened, which then allows these ingredients to penetrate each strand.
These natural oils, then, constitute the most action-packed trio since Charlie’s Angels!
