Makeup Mondays—Beauty on a Budget

I’m no snob when it comes to the products that I use, and I have both drugstore and higher end brands in my beauty arsenal. In fact, I love it when I come across an inexpensive product that does the trick—and my latest find is a real steal at only $3!

As you know, I have color treated hair that can be a bit temperamental at times, and depending on the weather and its ‘mood’ I may have to combat dryness, frizz, and static. Because of this, I tend to lean towards products by the likes of Redken and Biolage, as I often feel like drugstore products aren't heavy duty enough. However, a few weeks ago I picked up a bottle of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying Conditioner on a whim as I was getting a bit frustrated again; I had read good reviews on this product, and I’m already fond of the Triple Nutrition spray they make, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it out. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the performance of the conditioner after just one use—my hair was smooth, moisturized, and completely free of frizz and static (which is always an issue because of the extremely dry air here.) The conditioner has a light pleasant fragrance, and left my hair feeling soft but not too slippery or weighed down. It's also free of silicones, which can coat hair and cause it to become more dry over time (if one doesn't clarify every couple of weeks. I tend to avoid products with silicones now as I find my hair behaves better without them.) Following application, my hair was easy to set and style, and remained that way until the next washing three days later.

I have to say this product is worth checking it out; it has definitely earned a place in my hair product rotation and I plan on checking out other Garnier offerings in the future :-)
