Garnier Fructis Sleek&Shine Shampoo: Review

Garnier Sleek & Shine Shampoo : Review

Hi beauties!

I am back again with my all time favorite Garnier. I have been using Garnier shampoo since 3-4 years and never found any issues with it, I even tried to switch over to other brands as well but in vain. None of them matched my expectations as compared to Garnier honestly.
Garnier frutis sleek shine shampoo

Few months back while searching for shampoo, I came across Garnier Sleek & Shine product, as I told you about my love for good hair products; this was a hair treat for me. Since it claims to have argan oil from morocco and apricot, it was a must-try for me!

What Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Shampoo Claims:

  • Smoothes for long-lasting frizz control and shine.
  • Stays sleek for 3 days, even in 97% humidity.
  • Moroccan argan oil and apricot.


I got a 25.4 Fl Oz bottle for $ 4.72 from walmart, price may vary store to store.



It comes in a translucent green bottle with as usual flip cap. Since it’s a big famil-pack bottle, it is not at all travel friendly. Bottle contains 30% recycled plastic (PET), its Eco-Fructis bottle.

What is Argan oil:

Let me tell you about argan oil. As I read in books and researched on the net,I found that argan oil is basically extracted from kernels of argan fruit by crushing, it’s also called as “liquid gold” by beauty experts as it is not only beneficial for hair, but for skin protection and body restoration as well. It gives new life to dry, tangled and flyaway hairs as it has properties similar to that of jojoba oil. It can be used as an anti-ageing oil or hair oil.

My Experience with Garnier Fructis Sleek&Shine Shampoo :

This transparent little viscous shampoo definitely smells different and good. I usually mix 4-5 drops of shampoo in half mug of water n then apply it over head, unlike spreading on hands and then applying! In this way, product lasts longer and I feel, harsh chemicals inside shampoo are diluted . After just a wash, I can feel my hair more soft, less frizzy andshiny. It is recommended to use Sleek & Shine System after shampoo, thankfully I never felt the need of doing the same.  And as I wrote in my earlier post , I always crave for shiny hair, so this shampoo is a must-have for me. Apart from shine, it also cleans oiloff my hair in one go. I usually apply coconut+olive+almond oil on the scalp, a day before washing.

Pros of  Garnier Fructis Sleek&Shine Shampoo:

  •   It softly cleans hair.
  •  It makes hair silky and shiny.
  • Price is much much lower.
  • Bottle is eco-friendly.
  • It comes in smaller 13 fl oz pack also.
  • It also clears away dry flakes and dandruff, though not given in product description.
  •  Its suitable for all hair types, best for very dry n frizzy hair.

Cons of  Garnier Fructis Sleek&Shine Shampoo:

  • Contains Sulphates.
  • Doubtful about its availability everywhere.

I could not find any other negative point about Sleek & Shine.  Personally I would love to go with Sleek & Shine for next couple of months, till Garnier launches any new range for dry, frizzy hair. I just love their products as they always provide useful information about untouched topics, see Argan, I never knew about its benefits till I bought Sleek n Shine.

IMBB Rating:

I would rate it 4.5/5, deducted 0.5 for sulphates n availability.

    1. thanx neha.. 🙂 yeah I do love skin n hair care! I always crave for natural skin care n hair care recipes apart from organic market products, being a busy mum Its nt possible to go for home made CTM routine so I usually go for easy peasy market pdts as an alternative! A big Thanx to IMBB for making my work so easy.. I learnt a lot from here itself n truely inspired to share whatever i know.. 🙂
      Still i am learning from IMBB..

    1. Aww… Yeah even I am also not comfortable with any other garnier skin care pdt but sumhow shampoos worked for me.. 🙂
      Hey many happy returns of d day to ur bundle of joy.. 🙂 Wish u n cutiepie wonderful life ahead!!

  1. The Sleek and Shine they sell in India has apricot and avocado oils. I would love to try out argan oil shampoos if available in India.

    1. may be its nt available rt nw.. but soon it wud be.. 🙂
      u may try for argan oil, its great for skin, body n hairs.. M going for argan oil now!!

  2. A detailed research review! Very nice!
    But I’m bit apprehensive about using garnier as I have been told that they use many harmful chemicals. Is it true?

    1. Thanx smriti.. 🙂 yeah u r rt garnier or any skin/hair care brand is full of chemicals but nt sure if all of them are harmful chemicals!! Personally i think any chemical used in minimal qtty does’nt harm us in any way.. I usually dilute shampoo n then apply hence i never came across any harmful after effect of applying garnier shampoo.. Even if we overdose vitamins n minerals they will also adversly affect us.. We shud limit qtty to minimal n then all is okay i think.. 🙂

      1. On reading ingredients list of sleek n shine.. i noticed all are natural chemicals or say botanical names of tea, avocado, apricots etc.. I guess its safe 🙂
