      Disadvantages

      not my favourite shampoo

      I'm not particularly loyal to any brand of shampoo & I'll go for more or less any shampoo that looks good & at a good price. I'm lucky I don't have any issues with my hair (ie it's not too greasy/dry/brittle etc) so when I saw this Garnier Fructis Long & Strong shampoo in a dump basket I thought I'd give it a try. I think it usually retails at around £2.30 so I was pleased to see the 250ml bottle reduced to £1.35 & it's as shown in the picture but with a silver tag stated 'new' on the front. I'm not quite sure what they mean by 'long' hair but mine is just past shoulder-length & I like to wash & condition it on a daily basis. It's market for long hair but I can't see why anyone can't use it lol! The flip-top ball lid is easy enough to open even with wet hands & the smell really hits you - it's a kind of mix of citrus with undertones of peach - very fresh & not too feminine. The shampoo itself is a thick white creamy sort of shampoo & I found I only needed a little to work up a good lather & it cleaned my hair very well. However, when it came to rinsing, I found I needed to rinse & re-rinse & even when I thought I'd done a good job I found myself left with quite 'heavy' hair with a kind of film on it even when dry. I've used it several times since & found the same problem. It did a good job of keeping the shine I normally have but I didn't see any difference in the appearance of the several split ends I have nor did it seem to make my hair stronger (which is claimed on the bottle). Apart from the heaviness though, my hair looked & felt good & smelt really nice. I won't bore you with the whole list of ingredients given on the bottle but just to let you know this shampoo contains vitamins B6,B3, AHA, fructose, glucose, fruit acids & reconstructive lipids(?!) all of which are claimed to give 'nutrients that help feed hair cells & ensure healthy & shiny hair growth & hair cells'. Well, I don't know about the accuracy of these claims but all in all it's a good shampoo but cheaper ones work just as well for me without leaving my hair feeling coated.
