Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Shampoo & Conditioner

I love using henna on my hair. My hair is rather limp, scanty and well practically barely there. I am always looking for ways to nourish my hair and add volume. For years henna has been favourite – it adds shine to my hair, bounce and really makes it look thicker than what it actually is. But the process of applying henna is rather tedious – you have to prepare the mask beforehand, applying can be messy, you need to leave it on for a few hours to get better results and it takes time to remove it as well. What if you could combine all the benefits of henna in an easy 2 step process – that’s where Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Shampoo and Conditioner comes in.

Product Claims: If your hair is dull and lacks shine it may be lacking nourishment. Our formula, which is a blend of Henna & Blackberry, not only nourishes your hair but also gives incredible shine. Discover hair that is nourished, vibrant and shiny with every wash.

My Experience with Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Shampoo & Conditioner

Shampoo: Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Shampoo comes in a purplish bottle with a similar coloured watery gel textured product. The shampoo provided me with similar nourishment as using henna but minus the mess and hassle of keeping it for long. A little bit about my hair – I have oily scalp but my hair tends to look dry & frizzy. The shampoo easily cleansed my hair removing excess oil, made it shine and tamed frizz to a great level. My hair had bounce and volume, and it was wonderful seeing my 4 strands of hair look healthy and voluminous. You could really see the benefits of the henna leaf shining through each use. The shampoo also has Blackberry fruit, which is loaded with Vitamin C and antioxidants, which are beneficial for hair growth. While I love that the shampoo has the goodness of henna, glycerine, castor oil, henna leaf and blackberry, I am saddened it does have its share of chemicals in the form of sulphates and silicones.

Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Shampoo & Conditioner

Conditioner: I love conditioners, which have a nice thick consistency. I feel like I use very little product and that it coats my hair well. Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Conditioner comes as a thick whitish paste, which feels creamy and smells amazing. I need very little product to coat my hair. The conditioner has a mild fragrance, which is refreshing. It makes my hair soft, shiny and really keeps the tiny hairs down reducing frizz. Overall this is a great companion to be used with the shampoo.

  1. I have used the shampoo and liked it. But haven’t repurchased as it contains many chemicals 🙁 Btw, if you looking to add volume and thickness to your hair, you can try using hibiscus hair mask. The one from Nature’s Co is very good. Also Aroma Essentials Onion Shea Butter Hair Cleanser is very good in adding volume and bounce to hair…

    1. Have you tried using avocado, olive oil and honey mask. I found it to be perfect for my hair whenever it decided to act crazy frizzy and dry.

  2. I have used the conditioner and found it just about ok for my hair. Anyway I don’t like the effect of Henna. But I guess its a great pick for those who like henna.

  3. Sounds like regular ones. Though I tried one conditioner from this line, it worked for me well.

  4. Good review.. I love garnier and I can only imagine the divine aroma 🙂 it seems like it does what it says it will and the pricing is good.

  5. Can give it a try for a change. Natural products can never be replaced but this seems like a close enough option.
