I am badly waiting for Christmas because I love how colourful the malls and the stores are and there is an area near my place full of Catholics, so the entire area is decorated with cute candy canes, light bulbs, Christmas trees and amazing gifts. Coming to today’s product, it is a serum from Garnier Fructis and I think it belongs to the “Goodbye Damage” range looking at the packaging, but there is nothing mentioned. The reason why I got attracted to this product was the “split ends bandage.” I check out such products because I get bad split ends due to heating tools. Let’s see how it worked for me.
The star product is the Split Ends Bandage Serum, which acts like a bandage on split ends and instantly seals them. The rich treatment can be used daily and applied to damp or dry hair.
Directions For Use:
Apply to dry or wet hair, then blow dry or style your hair as usual and notice instant shine and smoothness with 77% less split-ends.
My Take on Garnier Fructis Split Ends Bandage Serum:
I have used the entire Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage range, but I got it long ago, so I have finished the shampoo and conditioner and the only thing left is the oil, so I finally got this and completed the range. This serum comes in a super-cute bright orange bottle and it is a transparent one with a pump dispenser. I think the packaging is so attractive that it would make any girl buy this product. The outer box also has a cute bandage type of thing at the top which says, “don’t cut split-ends, seal them.” How attractive is that? They get full marks for packaging and being small in size, its also travel friendly and I think there is only a single size available.
This is specially designed for damaged hair and also for hair which is super dry and dull. The serum is transparent and only a little amount is needed to work out on the entire hair shaft and the ends as well. The consistency is runny, but it does not make my hair greasy or oily. It can be applied to dry and wet hair also, but I prefer applying it to wet hair because it gives me more softness and smoothness. The frizz in the hair is controlled for up to 8 hours and then re-application is needed. It has an amazing citrus fragrance, like a blend of oranges and apricots and is heavenly when you press the pump and lingers for a while too.
As soon as I apply it on, my hair feels very soft and it de-tangles hair completely, but I do not comb through my hair because it is never advisable because hair tends to break more when its wet. As the hair starts drying up, they feel very soft and smooth and I don’t notice any frizz or damaged hair. It helps my hair to look better. The visibility of the split-ends was much reduced and the ends looked healthy after continuous use, but I do not know if it seals them, but yes, I think it was effective as I could not notice much split ends. So overall, it is a great hair serum whether you have damaged hair or not.
Pros of Garnier Fructis Split Ends Bandage Serum:
- Attractive packaging.
- Comes with a pump dispenser and only one pump is needed for medium length hair. Transparent bottle, so you know how much product is getting used up.
- The serum smells heavenly with a fresh citrusy fragrance, like that of oranges and apricots.
- The quantity will last for 4 months even with every day use because only a small amount is needed.
- Can be used on dry as well as wet hair, does not make hair greasy.
- Controls frizz for up to 8 hours.
- Makes hair smooth and shiny.
- Detangles hair.
- Does not seal split ends to a great extent, but the split ends were not that visible, so I think it improved the overall appearance.
Cons of Garnier Fructis Split Ends Bandage Serum:
- Limited availability in India.
- Re-application is needed after a period of 7-8 hours.
- The instructions should be written out in English, I do not know what language it is written in.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Garnier Fructis Split Ends Bandage Serum?
Yes, it is a very good serum and I would say it worked somewhat like the Matrix Biolage Serum, but it does extra work for damaged hair, so I surely recommend it because its a good serum. If I spot it again, it is going to be in my closet 🙂
