Mrs. Bacca recently switched the Bacca household from our old tried and true shampoo to Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo. I don’t know, maybe it was the fact that we were getting 33% more . . . hold a minute, I just looked at the label again and it looks like we’re not even getting “33% more for free”, we’re just getting “33% more”. Whatever. The label is not my biggest complaint about the product.
My biggest complaint about Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo is that this stuff just cakes on your scalp. All week I’ve felt like I’ve had bugs crawling on my scalp. I itch my scalp and the shampoo just peels off.
I should have known this would happen because this shampoo is one of those totally unnatural foaming kinds of shampoo. The smallest dab of the shampoo can expand to cover your entire scalp as soon as you start to lather. It takes several washings to get the initial burst of suds from your hair.
After a little reading on the label I think I’ve identified the culprit. This batch of Fructis is part of something called “The Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine System of Shampoo”. An integral part of this system seems to be something called “Anti-Frizz Serum”.
I don’t want serums in my shampoo. Take your serums somewhere else.
Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo is horrible. Do not buy it unless you are trying to create a pseudo protective covering of psoriasis like scales on your hair and scalp.
