Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars, but for occasional use only

COST: $3.99

THE SKINNY: I've had good results with Garnier's Sleek & Shine shampoo and conditioner, but it's not a product I can use regularly.

This pairing uses argon and apricot oils to add extra moisture and extra shine to your hair. Because I have baby fine dark blonde hair, I was a little skeptical. Most products with oils in them just leave my hair looking greasy. That's not the case with Garnier's shampoo and conditioner, but I won't use them more than a few times a week. Everyday use would definitely overwhelm my locks.

This shampoo doesn't have a lot of lather, thanks to the oily base, so it's not something I would use if I really needed to clean my hair after a workout. But it smells nice and did leave my hair incredibly shiny.

These are not products that will straighten your hair automatically. Mine tends to be pretty straight anyway, so this helped tame static and those summer flyaways.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. It's affordable enough to be a once-a-week shampoo in my shower.
