It's been a while since I wrote my last review but now I'm back with this new hair care series by Garnier Fructis. It will be released in Germany this month but I was able to try it beforehand thanks to the Garnier Blogger Academy. I don't know if the products will be available in other countries as well so this review might not be that interesting for my non-German readers, sorry for that!
So what is this new care series supposed to do to your hair? According to Garnier it should fill up your hair, thus make it more massy but also stronger and handier. A volume shampoo against bad hair days so to say. So far so good, but does it really work?

The first thing I noticed when using the shampoo was an amazingly lovely smell (pomegranate!). The second thing was that the shampoo makes a hell lot of foam (too much if you ask me). And the third thing was that the shampoo leaves my hair pretty entangled and hard to comb. After blow-drying it I noticed a slight volume boost and I also had the feeling that the shampoo would be ideal before a hair updo or before braiding it because it leaves the hair with more grip. But as I mostly wear my hair super straight that's an effect I don't really wanna achieve.

Both the conditioner and the deep conditioner made my hair really smooth which was much needed after the use of the shampoo. However I felt that they don't go hand in hand with the shampoo but rather reduce its impact.

The serum can only be used in your wet hair which I think is too bad because I usually like to apply some additional care after straightening my hair. I guess care is not what this serum is for but then again I really don't know what it's for as I didn't notice any impact on my hair.
So all in all the shampoo comes closest to the promises of this hair care range but as it leaves my hair really entangled I don't see the sense of these products altogether. I will keep on using them, at least the conditioner and deep conditioner as they make my hair really smooth, but I wouldn't repurchase any of the them as I didn't notice most of the promised impacts.
