      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      recommend

      Having unmanageable hair, I am always looking for something new to try on my hair. I went to the store and seen this cute green container from Garnier. Label on the top says : Fructis Style Polishing Wax. Price for this product is very reasonable, I bought it for 2.50 euro. If you are interested to buy this product, I find it on the amazon.com for $4.15.

      The Packaging
      How I already wrote, you can find this by the Garnier products. I am sure you can't miss those, because all their products has such a nice green color. I think they made really good choice with this look, because it is easy to find their products, if you go to the bigger store and the packaging is kind of stylish to me.

      Usage

      Usage of this products is very simple. Just rub to your palms, warm it a little bit and apply on damp or dry hair. I prefer to apply it on dry hair, but I think it depends on you. Just don't forget to wash you hands really good, because this wax is very sticky. You need to use only a little bit of it, so that's why this product last so long. I have mine for about half year, although I don't use it every day.

      Fragrance
      Garnier Fructis style polishing wax has really nice smell and how it says in the name it is really fruity. You hair might smell a little fruity after usage, but not too strong, what I like about it.

      Consistence
      This style polishing wax has transparent color, what I like about it. Now like those other products with white color and you can't rub them easy to your hair. This product is easy to apply and doesn't left any white film on your hair.

      Overall
      I like this product a lot, specially when I style my natural curls. It makes them even curlier and not so frizzy. My hair are shiny and smells good, then you are probably wondering why I give this product only four stars? Yeah, there is one disadvantage. If you use this product, you have to wash your hair every day, because after you apply it, it is great all day, but next day when you wake up, you hair just doesn't feel fresh anymore. But I would still recommend this products.

      Thank you for reading

        good for just messing it up and anywhere styles

        This stuff is really good!!

        I must be on my 3rd tub now or something alongs the lines of that, brought it first time, wasnt expecting anyhitng from it. done my har reallly good, my hairs fairly thick n kinda curls a little, it just holds it up.

        You might need to rub it your palms a couple of times, rub it through your hair, get it all in there, give it a good rub!! just pull apart seperate parts and style.

        I only realised how good it was until it ran out!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A crap product that is far more expensive that its better rivals

        On impulse I recently purchased the Fructis Style Polishing Wax, allegedly an extreme styling wax from Garnier. The price? £1.79 for a 150 ml tub. This to me seemed a little on the cheap side but it was on offer. On further investigation it would seems that this product would usually retail for £3.49!

        Actual Garnier products are widely available from supermarkets and large chemists. Personally I have only ever tried their extreme glue which I found wonderful when trying to style rather long spikes in my hair and on the back of this wonderful product I decided to cast aside my past fears of hair wax in general and take the plunge.

        Fructis Style is easily identified on the shelf, coming in a lime green tub that draws the eye immediately to the shelf. The marketing spiel that comes with the wax states that it contains fruit micro waxes that will help to provide extreme, gravity defying styles that will remain solid with shine.

        After washing and drying my hair I took the tub in hand and rubbed a blob of the wax onto my hand. This was not an easy process, the wax was very hard and it took a few minutes of rubbing it between my palms to soften it up into a consistency that could be applied to my hair without large blobs remaining. The smell of green apples was evident on opening and applying the wax and I have to say it was far more overpowering than the other Fructis products I had used in the past.

        Rubbing the wax into my hair was fairly straightforward and I managed to style a few spikes into my hair. The spikes themselves appeared to be rather large and clumpy with a white shiny residue. With much more rubbing between my fingertips the residue disappeared but I wasn’t happy with the style at all, it was nothing like how I usually style my hair with gels.

        The spikes that had been styled into my hair did remain upright for a few hours but my hair looked incredibly greasy as though I hadn’t washed it for a week or so. I was not impressed.

        After trying the product again on three separate occasions, once after having my hair cut shorter to approx 2 inches in length I am still not impressed and have reverted to the much cheaper and better Shockwaves gel. This may smell nice after getting over the initial strength of the fragrance but it is a nightmare to actually style hair and leaves it looking like your hair needs a damn good wash.

        NOT RECOMMENDED

        Thanks for taking the time to read and rate.
