Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Review

Thanks to BzzAgent, I recently tried out Garnier Fructis' new line of shampoo and conditioner called Hydra Recharge. It is a system of shampoo, conditioner, and a 1-minute treatment meant to hydrate dry, frail hair. This line has the tasty scent and great healing and hydrating powers of goji berry, passion fruit and kiwi. The shampoo has little vitamin beads in it that burst to give you nutrition while exfoliating your scalp which helps to clean, stimulate growth and increase hair hydration! You may be thinking, what if these beads stay in my hair...gross! I can assure you, however, that all the beads will burst as you massage the gel through your hair and will rinse with the suds made. The conditioner is a seafoam green color and feels like butter or mayonnaise on your hair (without the smelliness or stickiness of course) and is just so rich and smooth and makes your hair feel so soft even before you finish your shower! The 1-minute treatment is the same idea as the conditioner but is meant to be used on occasion as an extra-hydrating conditioning step for less frizz and more sleekness and shine. I use the treatment about once a week and it keeps my hair extra soft for the rest of the week.
Before
After (and I didn't even need makeup because I am
wearing some super awesome Garnier Fructis BB Cream!
Watch for my review on that product soon!)
Usually after I test a product, even if I do enjoy it, I pass it onto my husband and try something new. Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge, however, has been a different story. Once in a while there is a product that I absolutely fall in love with and I can honestly see a difference so I will keep on using it until I need to try something new and then I will go right back to it again after. This is one of those products that I have noticed such a difference with and I have been using it now for weeks and still loving it. With most shampoo and conditioner, the first few days of use I can tell a difference...softer hair, more shine...but those effects wear out by the next week and my hair starts to go back to the usual sticky, dry that it is. For this reason, I tend to switch up shampoo and conditioner every week so that I can feel that fresh start. I have not had to yet with Hydra Recharge which to me is amazing. I rarely speak this highly of a product unless I am smitten and I truly am. Continued use only seems to be making my hair better. I can even let my hair dry naturally and I have very little frizz after and I don't even have all my usual frizz from the rainy, humid weather we have here. I highly recommend this product to anyone with dry, frizzy hair or anyone who wants a hair product that works consistently. I have frequently used the 'more expensive' brands as well and not even those can compare! I'd say these are quite worth the money!
Speaking of money, Garnier is one of the 'cheaper' brands, but their quality begs to differ. I have always been somewhat a fan of Garnier but have strayed away since I found some new products, however, each newly-formulated hair product and each brand new hair product line have made me very pro-Garnier. They are also one of the brands that regularly gives out great coupons as well so their products are pretty much always in your budget. I give Hydra Recharge and the Garnier brand in general a 5 star rating. I know there are a few products I have not liked even in the recent past, but they always bring me back with the next great product. So try some out for yourself and let me know what you think because I think this line of theirs is simply wonderful.

    1. Hello Sarah my name is Amy Childs. I checked out your website and I think you have done a good job on it so far,but I'm not an expert or anything. I posted a link on my facebook page of your blog. You are an inspiration to me as I'm disabled too. It's been discouraging for me trying to find work as no one wants to hire me in my area. You gave me a boost in my spirit and now I will continue to keep my head up and persevere until I find work. I bookmarked your blog and will look forward to your posts in the coming weeks.

  22. I'm also new to BuzzAgent. I really enjoyed your blog. I also love Garnier Fructis products, though I normally use the Totally Twisted for my natural hair. However, I've also tried this product line and liked it well. I look forward to doing great reviews such as you. I'm excited to be a part of the team and am ready to receive my first #gotitfree kit and assignment.

  24. I feel as if I'm learning from every one of you. I too am new to Bzz Agent and have yet to get my 1st campaign but when I do, I plan on slaying it! You have all shown me something I could learn, and for that I thank you!

  25. Very nicely written. Very good job of explaining the product and making me eager to try this product. Very good information and explaining it in a normal way so that people can understand all the benefits to using this product. Great great job

  26. Absolutely well done!! I REALLY enjoy your reviews and blog. You share much more than just the bare minimum, basic, and expected information typically included or found in the average review. And I don't feel it's all simply empty words, as if you are just attempting to fill space to provide a longer- perhaps more "impressive" review/blog. I COMPLETELY believe you and find your knowledge to be refreshing, entertaining, and genuine. A pleasant read for us as the consumers, and a true success & job well done for you as the author and creator of this very enjoyable blog space. Thank you!

  27. l am a new BzzAgent, but I know a good review when I read it. I have a hankerin to go out and buy the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge system right now (and it is 11:30 PM here). My hair is so dry and frizzy, that it always looks like I got electrocuted. I haven't found anything to tame it yet, but this review gives me hope that this system will work on my hair.

    Strike a pose. Keep up the good work.

  29. Hi hope you are keeping well,thanks firstly for your kind comments about my blog but I don't blog very often only when my mood allows,I wanted to let you know I've been a BzzAgent since 2014 and my best advice would be to use the product for a good couple of weeks before posting any content this will allow you to really get to know the product in fact I keep a daily diary of the product and jot down its pros and cons as the two weeks go by then I can look back and conclude some thoughts of the product I might have forgot about and just be your normal honest self,and share your most honest thoughts of the product good or bad,I have to admit over a year ago I had a product I hated so I told them this in a polite way and that's what they need in your feedback and I think your gonna be a real asset to BzzAgent going by the content I've read on here,so good luck and look forward to your first reviews,xxx

  34. Thank you Sarah for your fabulous review. I find it very honest and interesting that you have had a product that you did not like and you told the company your honest opinion. I, too, have thought about this scenario and how I would handle it. Did your honest response affect your campaign invites? I know that being the way that I am and placing great value on honesty as well as using effective communication skills, in this situation it seems even more comparative to be truthful when writing your review. It is reassuring to see that I am not the only person that feels this way. I mean afterall, that is what we were recruited to do is give our honest opinions, correct? I forgot to mention that I, too, am new to Bzzz as a Zzz Agent and I am looking forward to my first product to try! I am just researching to see what a well performed activity lools like, and well here we are! Thank you again for your well written and honest review. Hers to all of us embarking on this new adventure with Bzzz. May we all find success, true peace and serenity in this lifetime.
