Product junkies on some of the popular curly hair message boards are always nattering on about HG or Holy Grail products. I didn’t quite get the fuss until now. I think I found my HG, and I’m ready to testify! Garnier Fructis Curl & Shine products are the bomb!
My friend Jessica swears by the Soft Curl Cream, and she recommended I try it. The thing is, she’s one of those caramel-latte Jamaican girls and her naturally curly hair falls in large ringlets down her back. She’s more of a 3B/3C. I define myself as a 4A+. While the Soft Curl Cream worked fabulously for her, it didn’t do much for my tighter curl pattern. I was ready to give up on Garnier, then I discovered the Curl & Shine Leave-in Conditioning Cream.
I read all sorts of good things about it on other sites before I made the purchase. I apply it as soon as I get out of the shower, and slick it into my hair in a downward motion while it’s still wet. Then I let it dry naturally. The leave-in smells great, like a citrus flowers. It worked pretty well, but I had no idea of the product’s true capabilities until I bought the Garnier Fructis Fortifying Deep Conditioner 3 Minute Masque. It costs a mere $3.79 at Drugstore.com. Not only is this a miracle product, it’s a hella cheap one too!
After using these two products in succession, I was blown away by how soft, beautiful, and defined my curls were.
It was like Toni Braxton at the end of the “Unbreak My Heart” video, y’all.
Well, not quite.
But I felt so proud and happy with my curls that I’m contemplating getting the rest of the Garnier Curl & Shine system! The products are cheap, they smell divine, and worked really well for me. I’d definitely recommend it to any afrobella.
