Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner
The Garnier Fructis Silky Straight Range was released more than a month ago and this is my second review of the range. I have already reviewed the shampoo here on IMBB. The product being reviewed here is the Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner.
The Silky Straight Range promises to transform rough, unmanageable hair to silky smooth hair with active fruit concentrate in their taming system. I wanted to try this along with the serum as well, but couldn’t find it. I might eventually buy it online. A strange fact is that there is no information about this product on the Garnier India website.

My Take on Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner:
The conditioner comes in a standard Garnier Fructis Green opaque bottle with a bottom opening. There is a sticker on the front of the bottle showing Ms. Jungli’s before and after photos.
On the reverse side of the bottle, the 3-step taming system is explained that is expected to take care of all your rough and frizzy hair woes. It also elaborates on what the ‘Active Fruit Concentrate’ actually contains and its benefits.
The directions of use are to rinse well after shampooing, apply conditioner along length of hair to tips, leave for 1-2 minutes and rinse thoroughly. They recommend using with Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Shampoo.
As per their recommendation and to see if the taming system was truly effective, I used this with the Garnier Fructis Silky Straight Shampoo. I did exactly as they said, only after application, I combed through my hair with a wide-toothed comb to ensure all hair strands were coated. The product has the same kind of fruity, peach-y fragrance as the shampoo and is a bit thinner in consistency as compared to conditioners of other brands. I needed a little more than usual to cover my hair. One point I noticed is that while rinsing out most conditioners, I lose quite a bit of hair, but that did not happen with this conditioner. This feature alone wins a lot of points from me!!
After air drying, I found my hair very easy to brush with hardly any tangles at all!! It was a lot smoother and a little shinier as well. As for the “set it straight’ claims, I don’t believe a shampoo or conditioner can actually straighten hair, so I didn’t expect much on that front. It also didn’t leave behind much of a fragrance.
The second day too, my hair was quite soft to touch and easy to brush through, though it wasn’t as smooth as the first day. Still, the frizz and fly-aways did appear to behave themselves. I can’t be too sure about making my hair 5 times stronger with this conditioner, though perhaps prolonged use over a period of months could give some more insight into that.
This product works quite well with the shampoo in the same range. I guess the serum would complete the process and give a final, finished touch to my hair. Can’t wait to try it out!!

Pros of Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner:
- Easily available.
- Reasonably priced.
- Long shelf life.
- Effect lasts for at least two days.
- Hair is shinier and smoother.
- Hair is very easy to brush; there were hardly any tangles even on the second day.
- Frizz and fly-aways are controlled a little.
- Very less hair loss during conditioning and rinsing.
Cons of Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner:
- Extreme fruity smell.
- Contains parabens.
- Need a little more product than other brands.
- Slight decrease in effect from the second day onwards.
- Not sure about the strengthening effect (as visible from short term use).
This is a buy that I am quite happy with, but my verdict is based on the performance of this conditioner as compared to conditioners of other brands, and not according to the product claim. The claims of setting hair straight and making it 5 times stronger seem too far fetched. The presence of parabens is a major minus point.
Would I Buy Garnier Fructis Silky Straight 24/7 Strengthening Conditioner Again?
Certainly!! On the lookout for the serum too!!
