Hola guys, what’s up?
Hope you all are doing well. A month ago I got four sets of Garnier Ultra Blend shampoo and conditioner just because they were available in smaller size :P. Till I get the last set, I am planning to try all these four that I have now and share my experience with you so that you do not have to worry about deciding. I have used up the Revitalizing 5 precious Herbs Shampoo & Conditioner recently, hence I am ready to share why you should not buy this set.

Packaging, Fragrance & Texture
Both shampoo and conditioner come in the simple light green plastic bottle with golden cap, which has leaf engraved on it. Most of the information is mentioned on the bottle itself. The bottles have fallen from my hands, but haven’t experienced any spills so far. So it is good to say that, they are sturdy and the small size is travel-friendly too.
They have an herb and lemony scent which does not linger for much time. The fragrance is not irritatingly strong. It was calming for me. The texture of the shampoo and conditioner is on the thinner side. The shampoo lathers well as it contains SLS.
My Experience with Shampoo & Conditioner
I tried to give the best information that I could gather in the above sections so that you do not have to go around searching in Google wasting time. But I will be truly honest and frank in this section as this is all about my experience.
I have oily scalp and dry (bit frizzy) hair. Long back, I had a dandruff issue which has been in control for months now. You can check how I got rid of dandruff, here. I was really excited about the whole range from Garnier, this time. Well, let’s see what happened.
First up is the shampoo. As I mentioned before that it lathers well. But you will need more shampoo if you have applied oil to your hair. What it does is do is the cleansing of all the dirt and oils from your hair. It does give a refreshing feeling which is mainly due to the fresh herb like scent that it has.
Using conditioner is a must for me. Given my frizzy hair, it will be a sin to skip the conditioner. The conditioner is on the thinner side. But I found the conditioner to be a bit better than the shampoo. It gets rinsed easily, leaving my hair smooth. The effect will last for maximum 2 days. Do not expect more.
The two most concerning things that happened to me were hair fall and dandruff. I had hair fall during the washing time. This is not too common for me as my hair does not really tangles much and I do untangle my hair before washing it. I did not have hair fall problem as well. The scalp started getting oily on the 3rd day (the place I live has no pollution and has a healthy atmosphere) and I saw dandruff on my scalp.
That was enough for me to stop using both of the Ultra Blend Revitalizing Shampoo & Conditioner because they just brought chaos and nothing else. It did clean my hair to a bit (that is the basic work of a shampoo) and made my hair manageable for 2 days. There was nothing special.
- No Parabens
- Availability & Affordable
- Travel Friendly
- Fresh Fragrance
- Basic Cleansing
- Short Lived Effects
- Hair Fall
- Conditioner is Must for Frizzy Hair
- Not for Oily Scalp
Neither I have damaged hair. Nor I use heating tools every day. I just have oily scalp and frizzy hair (due to my genes). The Garnier Ultra Blends Revitalizing Shampoo & Conditioner did nothing to stand out or improve my hair condition. I am not happy and, I do not want you to waste your precious money on it. After so much torture, I have given my hair a bit of rest before trying the rest of the collection. Wish me Luck.
And that’s a wrap. The review is inspired by my personal experience and so it was a bit long post. I tried to be as informative as I could. If you still have doubts then do comment below. I would love to be of any help.
