Affordable Hair Care: L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology and Garner Fructis Full & Plush Review

I’ve promised to write more about affordable hair care products, and did a post about Pantene Breakage Defence range last month, so this month I want to share my impression about two other non-expensive products  from L’Oreal Elvive and Garner Fructis.

Affordable Hair Care L'Oreal Elseve and Garner Fructis Review shampoo & conditionerElvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo (available from Boots for £2.99 and Amazon)

After seeing numerous raves about this range, I went out and bought a shampoo and a double serum hoping to get that fantastic volume everyone was talking about  for a cheap price.

Unfortunately, I did not see why people were so in love with it. Yes, I could see some volume but that wasn’t as good, as L’Oreal’s more premium ranges create. Also, for some reason my hair got really greasy very soon so I just had to give up on these products and gave them away to my friend who actually liked them.

Garnier Fructis Full & Plush Fortifying Conditioner (available from Wallgreens for $3.99)

I was looking for a new conditioner and this one really caught my attention. Unlike with L’Oreal, I did not read any reviews about the range and did not even know about it. I just wanted to try it because of the name and because I usually love Garnier products.

And I really, really like it.  It smells amazing and leaves the hair looking glossy and smooth.  I am not sure about the volume, as I use some other volumizing products, but I think it does contribute to the overall effect, as well. I am definitely trying the shampoo later on.

Elvive L’Oreal use a technologie called Filloxane,  and in Fructis it’s Fibra-cylane. You can read all about it at the official websites if you want to know how it works.

    I am so pleased to read your review on Fibrology (although I’ve only just read it today), as I thought I didn’t use it properly when you read all the rave reviews. I found it made my hair very lank & it didn’t feel like it normall does. I ended up giving it away to the local women’s refuge.
