Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying Shampoo - With Acerola Berry Antioxidant

Garnier Fortifying Pure Clean shampoo claims to be the ecofriendly way to clean hair with no silicones, parabens, and dyes, and recycled packaging - here's my review.


I love shampoos that leave no residue on my hair and are silicone-free, and so I picked up the Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying shampoo to see if it could be a drug-store dupe for the pricier I Love Juicy shampoo by Lush.

Garnier claims this shampoo is the truly green - the pretty green bottle is made from 50% recycled plastic and the formula itself is 94% biodegradable.  That apart, the shampoo is also silicone, paraben, and dye free.

This is a clear, transparent shampoo with the "usual shampoo smell" to it - I don't know how else to describe it.  I do wish the flip-open cap was a little more easy to open, but I do seem to have that problem this kind of a packaging, so maybe it's just me :D

Actual Performance:  This does live up to it's claims of not leaving any residue or the annoying slippery feeling since it is silicone-free.  I follow this up with Jungle conditioner from Lush, and my hair seems tamed enough.  I do a oil-treatment for my hair before washing, so I do need a heavy duty shampoo to get all that off, but I don't find this too harsh a shampoo either.  Might not be the best if you have very dry hair and do not use a pre-wash treatment like oil.  Definitely need to follow up with a good conditioner.  Great for people with sensitive/itchy scalp reactions to silicone products.

Cost:  $2.99 (384 mL)

Verdict:  For a drugstore brand, I found this quite good.  Is it as good as Lush?  Well, I am a Lushie, and Lush does add in a whole lot more natural ingredients, so I do feel it's a tad better, but Lush is a whole lot more expensive :D
