~Fructis Repair and Shine Shampoo~
Fructis is a hair care range manufactured by Garnier. Today I will be discussing my views on the 'Repair and Shine' shampoo. A matching conditioner is also available.
This shampoo is designed for use by those who have dry or damaged hair. Garnier state that it will leave your hair silky, soft and shiny. It contains three oils which have different roles :
*Shea oil (check for allergies relating to shea butter content) - to leave hair silky to the touch
*Avocado oil - for a conditioning effect
*Olive oil - to nourish and give your hair a shiny appearance
The outer packaging of this shampoo seems to vary between a green bottle and a yellow bottle. The bottle itself is made of squeezy plastic and features a flip top lid. The design is attractive and simple with the essential product information being present. This product carries as 12 month lifespan from first use and the bottle can be recycled.
~Price and Availability~
On the highstreet, a 250ml bottle of this shampoo can be found in bargain stores including B&Ms, Home Bargains and Poundland. It seems to be a regular addition to their beauty shelves too and the normal price is around £1.00 a bottle.
When we went to Blackpool at the start of May, we decided to buy the bulk of our toiletries when we got there and save some suitcase space! We bought a number of products from Home Bargains including this Fructis shampoo and the matching conditioner. I have used Garnier hair care products before with good results and was happy to pay 89p for each bottle. I have used this for the past few weeks and so has my fiancé. We mainly use both the shampoo and conditioner together but I have, at times, used the shampoo as a stand alone product.
The shampoo itself is a creamy white colour is reasonably thick. The scent of this shampoo is gorgeous - fruity, sweet and with a soapy undertone which allows it to smell perfectly clean and refreshing. I wash my hair three times a week normally but find this shampoo to be suitable for daily use as it is gentle and not too heavy. A dispense a reasonable sized dollop of this shampoo onto my hand and find that it lathers up incredibly well when it becomes in contact with my wet hair. My hair is down past my shoulders and is very thick so I often need extra shampoo but a little goes a long way with this shampoo. My fiancé has very short cut hair and needs very little per use.
The lather created by this shampoo is creamy and rich. It feels very conditioning and is gentle against my sensitive scalp. I do find that the shampoo takes a little longer to rinse out than other shampoos but not much longer. I love the way my hair feels and looks after washing it even if I do not follow with the conditioner. My hair feels soft and silky smooth. I have dry hair and find that the shampoo alone is enough to combat the dryness and leaves my hair feeling stronger and healthier.
The main aspect of a shampoo in my opinion is how clean your hair feels. I cannot complain about this one at all as my hair is left perfectly clean and refreshed. My hair feels beautifully nourished and is easy to manage with the shampoo alone. The fruity scent lingers for a short while. I colour my hair and find that this shampoo hasn't caused any noticeable colour reduction which is an added bonus. My colour remains shiny and fresh. My fiancés short, normal hair is left clean and super soft. He doesn't find the scent too feminine either and is happy to use this shampoo.
In terms of how long the effects of this shampoo lasts, I am more than happy with it. If I use the shampoo alone, I can go 2-3days without my hair feeling unclean. I do find that if I don't use the conditioner, my hair does start to go slightly dry and frizzy after a day or so. I do prefer to use both products together for ultimate results. With both products used together, my hair is left ultra smooth and hydrated for longer with no evident build up of product.
This is a great buy at 89p or even at £1.00. It leaves my hair feeling great and I have noticed an improvement in the strength and quality of my hair from regular use of this shampoo (and the conditioner). It is very gentle and hasn't agitated my already irritated scalp. It is nourishing, smells gorgeous and my hair benefits from the moisturising oils within this shampoo. I will buy this again as it represents good value for money but I tend to switch about with hair care products to ensure my hair doesn't become too used to the one product. Our 250ml bottle is around 1/4 full now which I would say is great given how much it has been used by the two of us. Highly recommend!
Thanks for reading :)
I have been staying with my mate for a little while now due to the face that I have injured my knee. She has had the tough job of looking after me and my dog and cat. She had this in her bathroom for me to try.
Comes in a stylish yellow plastic bottle with the Garnier fructise logo shown at the front of the bottle. This shampoo is to repair dry and damaged hair. Contains shea butter olive oil and avocado to nourish hair and leave it shiny. This shampoo is fantastic for those of you who suffer with dry brittle damaged hair. It brings your hair back to how it should be. This bottle contains 250ml.
I wash my hair daily as if I don't it looks lifeless and is hard to manage. I simply wash it twice and rinse until the water runs clear. It smells of citrus fruits and feels very cleansing when massaged into the scalp. I then comb through and dry an style it as normal. The smells stays on my hair for a good hour after applying it. I have had comments made on how nice my hair smells.
Available from all good supermarkets and chemists for around £1.00.
~*~*~ Garnier Fructis Repair & Shine Shampoo ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
Garnier Fructis Repair & Shine Shampoo claims to be a nourishing shampoo that is fortified with olive oil, avacado oil and shea oil which nourish and condition the hair. It is aimed at people with dry, damaged, weak or brittle hair.
~ The packaging ~
The only reason I am mentioning the packaging is because it has chnged since dooyoo have added it to their catalogue of products and is no longer the lime green colour that it used to be.
The bottle a slim plastic yellow coloured bottle, the lid is yellow and it has a dark green rounded flip up lid. The label on the front gives us the name of the product - Garnier Fructis Repair & Shine Shampoo and also tells us it is a restoring shampoo, the picture I am guessing is showing us the oils used in the shampoo.
It is for dry, damaged hair and claims to leave it soft, silky and shiny. The label on the back holds all the other information that you would expect to find, it has a 12 month shelf life after being opened, and the bottle is recyclable.
~ The shampoo ~
The shampoo has a lovely fruity scent that is typical of all the products I have tried in the Fructis range, this comes out of the bottle a very pale lemon shade with a slight glisten to it. It feels quite thick and doesn't just run through my fingers when I pour a bit out onto my hand. I find a dollop on my hand is more than enough and when I rub it into my hair it creates a good lather which I feel is important with shampoos.
The smell wafts around you as you lather it in and it is a nice fruity uplifting scent.
It's a nice shampoo.
~ The results ~
I find that inbetween using my violet pigmented shampoos I need a break so like to have other products to hand and that is why I have these in my bathroom along with a load more hair products that I couldn't resist buying!
After washing my hair with this, it feels clean and tangle free which is obviously great. I do use it with the Repair & Shine conditioner to get the best results and I am really pleased with how shiny and soft my hair is after washing. It really helps the ends of my hair which are frazzled from the abuse my hair takes (overprocessed) and when dry the ends of my hair do look and feel much better. The frizz is gone and my hair just feels normal.
I feel that using them both together has helped with this and the shampoo also does a good job at getting any product build up out of my hair. It also rinsing out quite easily despite the generous lather of bubbles it produces.
~ Overall Opinion ~
I paid £1 each for the shampoo and conditioner in Poundland and I am thrilled with how well they work together. The shampoo certainly cleans my hair really well and before I add the conditioner it does feel softer and squeaky clean.
It also leaves my hair smelling great for a good while after washing and drying which is always a nice thing.
I really like these so will be buying them again when I run out.
Thanks for reading :o) x
With shampoo I really am not all that fussy what I buy as long as it smells nice in the shop and is a reasonable price to be honest with you. This I spotted in my local Poundland store and I bought it and the matching conditioner at of course only a pound a bottle which I thought was a very reasonable price indeed.
The bottle of this has undergone an appearance change recently and it now a bright yellow plastic bottle with a dark green flip top opening to the top of it concealing a small hole and on the front of it we are told that it is Garnier Fructis Restoring Shampoo, Repair & Shine and that it is for Dry, Damaged Hair 'Intensely nourishes and replenishes. Soft, silky and shiny hair' and that it 'Contains 3 nourishing oils : Olive, Avocado & Shea' and there is a picture of what to me looks like the oils. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, the size is stated which is 250ml, the ingredients are stated and contact details for the manufacturer are listed. This is nice looking and informative bottle and very unisex really in its appearance.
The Shampoo Itself:
This shampoo is fairly runny and a light lemon colour with a really nice natural smell of fruits to it, nothing in your face fragrance wise stands out to me but its lovely and sweet this one. A little of this shampoo goes a very long way indeed on damp/wet hair and of course after the initial application you can rinse, repeat, rinse again and follow on with conditioner if you want to.
I find this to not give me a lot of lather, just a little bit but it smoothens over the hair really well and doesn't feel greasy at all. It also rinses out of the hair really well and leaves my hair feeling rather revived and clean and the fragrance of this actually lingers on my hair a good couple of days.
I can't say this repairs my hair as such I am not a Scientist but what I can say is that my hair does feel and appear stronger with using it every day and it feels like it nourishes from within. I usually suffer with frizzy hair, this smoothens and softens it without it being flyaway, it doesn't upset my greasy roots although it contains oils and my hair is left easier to style the way I want it as well.
This leaves my hair rather and naturally glossy too and with a wonderful soft feeling and although I haven't really appreciated Fructus shampoos very much at all in the past I really do like this one. If I have one niggle it would be the scent of it to be honest as I don't really want my hair to smell as fruity as this makes it and prefer more natural or floral scents however the scent of this is pleasant enough!
All in all I really like this one, wouldn't hesitate to buy it again and think its does my hair some good and doesn't upset my sensitive and dandruff prone scalp so thumbs up from me on this one!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists.

This shampoo comes in a slim lime green bottle with black and white lettering. The colour of the bottle caught my eye and when i saw it was on offer (i got the bottle for £2.50) and suited my hair type, i couldn't resist. This product is designed to help combat the effects that heat styling cause to hair and aims to remoisturise and soften dry, brittle hair.
This shampoo smells very nice, quite fruity and appley without being too overpowering. A little applied to damp hair can be worked into a nice smooth lather and i found this shampoo detangles the hair easily, leaving it feeling moisturised rather than stripped of all natural moisture.
Once dry, my hair felt very moisturised after using this shampoo, it seemed to have quite an effect, reducing frizz and making my hair feel a little healthier. My hair is shinier without feeling weighed down by chemicals so overall i am very happy with this product. I use this shampoo with the corresponding conditioner which seems to be very beneficial and i look forward to seeing my hair get healthier as i continue to use Garnier fructis!
Garnier Fructis Repair & Shine Shampoo
Brand: Garnier Fructis
Contents: 250 ml
Fructis Garnier offers a wide range of hair products. The Garnier Fructis Repair & Shine Shampoo is especially designed for people with dry and damaged hair. This shampoo is meant to repair the hair and strengthen it and even to make it shine. Garnier indicates that it is proven that this shampoo actually works.
The bottle comes in a light green colour and on top of the bottle you have the cap that you can easily click open. The cap is attached to the bottle so you will never lose it during use, which is always handy. The bottle is designed that you get the right amount in your hand. On the bottle itself you will find product information and also which hair type this shampoo is suitable for.
I use this shampoo almost every day because I use other hair products like wax and this makes my hair feel greasy. The use of this shampoo is very easy and you don't need a lot to wash your hair. It gets very creamy in combination with water which makes it easier to spread trough your hair. The shampoo smells nice and fresh and is easy to wash out. My hair feels nice and fresh after washing.
The shampoo smells very fresh and fruity and is actually also the description on the bottle itself. While using it you will notice the fresh smell and after washing, the smell gets gradually less but you can still notice it during the day.
Garnier Fructis is a brand that I trust and love for buying shampoo. They always smell very fresh and fruity which I like. This shampoo is actually meant to repair my hair and makes it more shining. I find the difficult to say if the shampoo actually works me. My hair does feel nicer after using it but it doesn't really make my hair any shinier. It looks and feels nice but can't really tell a big different. This is maybe also because I do use hair products like wax. Overall this is a very good shampoo which is very easy to use and will make your hair smell nice.
I have been using this shampoo for a couple of weeks, having picked it and the matching conditioner up on a special offer in Boots. They were on a buy one get one free deal and priced at £3.99 per 400ml bottle, effectively this means I paid around £2 for each item which is pretty good value for a large bottle of a leading brand product.
I have used Fructis before in the past but not for a while, I had also never used this particular version called the 'Repair and Shine' which is aimed at dry, damaged hair. As my hair is naturally quite dry and I also have it highlighted and frequently heat style it, I figured this shampoo might give it a bit of a pick me up.
Annoyingly, the bottle for the shampoo opens at the top (unlike the conditioner which stands on its lid) and it has a spherical plastic ball on the top which means that it literally won't balance on it's lid either. This is slightly annoying because when it gets to the point where the shampoo is running low it will mean shaking etc to get some out, I much prefer bottles for the shower which stand on their lids for easy dispensing.
Anyway....the product itself smells very fruity and sweet and is a creamy coloured liquid. It seems quite thick and silky but I find that it does not lather as well as I was expecting. For some reason I never quite feel my hair is 'squeaky clean' once i've washed it out although it does wash out easy enough.
I am not convinced about this shampoo because it does not seem to prevent my hair looking greasy again pretty quickly, as I have mentioned above, under the shower I feel like I really have to put the effort in to get it to lather up and it does not leave my hair feeling particularly clean. I am quite disappointed with it to b honest.
I do not remember other products from this range being like this so maybe it is just that this particular version does not suit my hair, as for whether it is repairing any damage, it's hard to say but I can't see any real difference to be honest.
Personally I do not think I will be buying this again.
I got this shampoo as my usually Pantene shampoo wasn't in the supermarket. It was only £1.00 and it smelled great I thought I picked up a great bargain here.
The shampoo comes in a sort of tacky looking green bottle. The colour is quite of the bottle is quite nice though and looks really fresh. However there is nothing special about this bottle.
I found this shampoo near impossible to open on my first try. I tried for 5 minutes but it wouldn't open. There is a little ball on the top off the bottle which you have to flick. I tried pulling it really hard but I nearly broke a nail! I gave up and my mother tried she got it open easily. Well I 'm not that strong.
**Washing My Hair**
As soon as I opened the bottle (well my mother did) the scent hit me and I thought it smelled absolutely beautiful. It was very fruity and I could smell a million different scents all fused together it was great.
The shampoo was quite thick and lathered easily on my hair it also washed out quite easily and it didn't take very long.
**With Dry Hair**
My hair was reasonable soft and shiny but not as much as I was used to with Pantene. I didn't really notice any major repairing going on so this is abit of a letdown. The scent was still really powerful though which was really nice. My hair felt clean but I wish it was a bit more cleaner.
A good budget shampoo. It has a gorgeus smell and will leave your hair reasonable soft and clean but if you want real results and care about your hair alot this shampoo isn't really for you.
I've always had trouble with dry hair and as mine is really thick it makes it a lot worse as there is so much to contend with. Even after it's been freshly cut and the hairdressers have used their nice shampoos it has no effect. Over the years I've used many a product which promises to relieve me of this problem and as you might of realised to of no avail. I don't use Fructis too often as I don't think you get your money's worth however Wilkinsons had them at the cost of 80p so I thought I might as well.
In its vibrant green bottle you'd be hard pushed to not notice it on the shelves and to know which brand you'd be buying. It's quite flat and has a flip top lid which I have never been fond of. It's in a ball shape which I struggle to open without catching my nails whilst also being quite stiff. At times I've found the only way to get into the bottle is by using my teeth which for the majority has left me with a taste of bubbles in my mouth! Not particularly pleasant.
You don't need to much as it lathers up really well although it is quite runny and shoots out of the plastic bottle a bit too quickly. I like how much it soaps up your hair as generally I find that I have to use a lot more shampoo with other products. Despite this it rinses out easily and when dry does give you a smooth feeling underneath your fingertips. Not that I go around touching my hair all day. Personally I find that it doesn't completely get rid of the dryness, after about 24 hours I notice that it's faded back to its old combination.
From the name Fructis I'd of expected it to of had that sort of fruity smell. Especially as on the bottle it says it includes essences of apple peal, blackcurrant and the like. However all I've ever become aware of is a slight chemical whiff. Like a cleaning product. So it isn't my favourite scent but it does disappear after a while so I'm not going to moan about that too much.
You get 250ml per bottle which for 80p I think is quite good, although the usual price from Wilkinsons if £1.96 For half the price I can get twice the amount from other brands. I think for that cost it isn't the best of products. If it were to come on offer again I might invest but there are other products which do a better job. For 24 hours you can get a squeaky clean smooth shiney look, afterwards it's a bit downhill.
I tend to suffer from dry hair. My hair is naturally wavy/curly and is therefore prone to frizziness as well. Add to this ,the fact that over the years I haven't been too kind to my hair.First there was the tinted shampoos, then the permenant colouring, then the phase of beating into submission with searing hot straightening irons daily.....you get the idea!It takes a lot for my hair to beleft soft and moisturised,but this shampoo seems to do the trick!
I picked a bottle up a while ago,with a bottle of the conditioner, whilst on special offer in Morrisons.
The shampoo comes in a slender bright green bottle.The bottle displays the standard information, including the possible benefits of using this shampoo and an ingredients list. There isnothing particularlyspecial about thebottle, but once you know what you are looking for,the bright green colour makes it easy to pick out from any shampoo shelf!
The lid opens by way ofasmall dark green tab. I have to say that this can be a bit fiddly , especially with wet soapy hands in the shower! The other drawback to the pakaging is that the slim shape of thebottommakes it very difficult to balane, and especially when half empty this tends to topple over on my shower stand.
The shampoo is a very pale creamy transluscent colour, almost see through. It is easy to squirt out just the right ammount. The smell is undeniably fruity , but without being overly sweet or at all overpowering.
The shampoo rubs easily into your hair easily to quickly form a soft abundant and luxorious lather. It is easy to rinse,and leaves your hair feeling nicelyclean and soft, without that stripped feeling that harsher shampoos can leave.
When used with the co-ordinating conditioer this leaves my hair soft and silky feeling. It is easy to untangle my hair with this product and it seems to bring outthe best in my curls whilst reducing the dreaded frizz! It definitely helped restore some of the moisture to my poor damaged hair!
If i had to pick my favorite shampoo purely on smell then this shampoo would come up trumps everytime. It really is the yummiest thing I have ever smelt in my shower. It's so fruity and summery smelling that it always leaves me feeling refreshed and uplifted everytime I buy a bottle and use it.
The shampoo comes in a vibrant green bottle, which is attractive in shape and design. The fructis logo is clearly printed on the bottle along with all of the instructions of usage. Again with me, it is asking to be knocked over and flung across the bathroom because of it's narrow shape which can be a tad annoying, but all in all, very nicely designed bit of packaging.
The shampoo itself is lovely and creamy and as I've already mentioned, smells absolutely heavenly! It lathers up into a thick and luxurious foam and you only need a small amount to cover all of your hair. The shampoo washes out easily and leaves no trace of residue in your hair. Because I am a person who likes things to match, I then like to use the conditioner aswell.
The shampoo leaves your hair smelling gorgeous and In absolutely fantastic condition. When you dry your hair, you find it to be shiny, glossy and strong. The shampoo absolutely does what it says on the bottle repairing your hair so it is in really good condition and leaving it with a lovely shine, which for my hair after a few weeks of having it dyed is excellent because it usually tends to get a bit dull at this stage, but this shampoo keeps it looking fabulous.
Price wise, the shampoo is very reasonable at about £2.70 a bottle and the bottle lasts for a very long time. I'm very much an offer loving girl so whenever I see this shampoo on offer I stock up on lots of it at a cheaper price which can last me upto a year.
Overall I would like to give Garnier Fructis repair and shine shampoo a 9/10 because I leaves your hair in the most fantastic condition, washes out well and smells gorgeous. I only mark it down slightly because of the narrow design of the bottle.
As hubby, myself & 2 daughters all wash our hair on a daily basis shampoo is something I always look out for on offer so we have plenty in stock. I must have used almost every single make of shampoo & conditioners over the years ranging from the very cheap to the highly expensive but can't say I've yet found the perfect shampoo at a good price.
Garnier hair products always look so tempting because of their packaging & the way they are marketed but, in my opinion, they don't give as good results as some shop-branded shampoos.
However, as they're usually on offer at Boots, Superdrug or one of the pound shops, I still tend to pop them into my shopping basket as they do get used by everyone else.
This Repair & Shine shampoo looked promising - it's as shown in the picture, easy to dispense & apply but it's difficult to get the last amount out because of the shape of the plastic bottle (you can't turn it upside-down).
The shampoo is fairly thick & lathers well & smells nice & fruity leaving the hair feeling very clean but my daughters & I have shoulder-length hair & found that you need to rinse it out 3 or 4 times before the water runs clear.
I noticed that my hair felt 'heavier' when dry & there seemed to be a type of film left on it which I really don't like. However, I have to say that no one else in the family mentioned this so maybe it's just my hair which doesn't take to the shampoo as I'm the only one who dyes their hair.
All the directions for use plus a list of ingredients are provided on the reverse of the smart bottle for those who like to know exactly what goes onto their hair & into their pores - frankly the ingredients don't make any sense to me & I'm at age now where I'm not too concerned lol!
- usually on offer, smart packaging.
- nice thick shampoo which smells good but needs extra rinsing.
- good for other family members but personally I don't like the feel of my hair after using it.
I bought this shampoo along with the conditioner from my local Wilkinsons store for only 99p per bottle. It's packaged in a rather flat bottle with a flip-top lid on the top which can make it awkward to get the last of the shampoo out. It smells amazing like all Garnier products do - very very fruity and clean. I'm always dyeing my hair and damaging it further through heat styling so I needed something to make my hair look healthier.
I used a small sized amount at first and found it lathered up really well even though it looks a bit like a thick cream. After rinsing I could already tell a difference to the softness of my hair. When my hair had dried the difference was even more apparent - my hair definitely looked healthier and shinier!
The only disadvantage I have with this shampoo is it can start to build up in your hair after you've been using it for a while. However this can easily be combated by changing the shampoo you use when you begin noticing build-up. I don't use this everyday but use it when I'm straightening my hair as it also prevents split ends and frizz forming when you straighten.
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is prone to dry, brittle hair or those who have frizz and generally unruly hair! It has definitely made a difference to my hair and this is one of the first shampoos which has managed too!
I am very found of K-Pop (Korean Pop Music) and love the hairstyles that the singers support,I follow Kim Jaejoong a lot (Korean Singer) and wanted to get my hair platinum blonde.My hair is black in colour,I had to get it bleached about three times to get it platinum blonde.I got the color but my hair got completely damaged.I had got it done from one of the best salons in the world and they took a hefty price for it.They looked like maggie noodles.I got a lot of deep conditioning treatments done but nothing worked,I tried expensive products from leading brands in the world,still there was no effect.One day I saw an advertisement on tv of Garnier Fructis Repair and Shine Shampoo and decided to try it,I thought since I have tried all the expensive stuff why not try something else.The shampoo did repair just a little bit of my hair but not much,I wasn't expecting much from it as well because my hair was highly damaged,so according to my opinion if you have less damaged hair you can probably try it,but if you have hair like me,this shampoo wont repair much damage.It is better if you don't experiment too much with your hair as prevention is better than cure.
I have been using this shampoo with intervals. The first time I used it was because I was familiar with the brand and after using it I found the fruity smell simply lovely. But after the initial use my hair turned sticky and seemed thin after drying. I wanted something that would give my hari body and bounce and this shampoo did just the opposite.
I would tell anyone having permed or curly hair to go ahead with this shampoo because it sraightens your hai and makes it silky and shiny after regular use. Aplying the conditioner further silkens the hair.
It didn't work for me because it did not serve the purpose for me but as i ahve mentioned earlier, anyone looking to straighten their hair, this is the shampoo for them.
The upside is that leaves a shine ans makes your hair smell like a garden of fruits. The downside is that it isn't for oily hair.
This creamy shampoo helps restore brittle, dull or dry hair, and helps make it up to five times stronger and smoother for brilliant shine /
