Garnier Fructis Dry Shampoo

In need of some oomph for fine, limp locks?  I got what you need. For this week's Friday Favorite I'm featuring a product that has been a staple in my haircare routine for years.  Let me introduce to you the Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Instant Bodifier Dry Shampoo for fine or flat hair.  It's like a texturizing spray and a dry shampoo rolled into one.  It's awesome.  And the best part?  It's only $5 a bottle!  Now where do I start with my love for this stuff.... Fruity and tropical scent? Check. Adds volume and texture? Check.  Absorbs oil without leaving a white residue in my hair? Check.  I've tried so many dry shampoos on the market; Suave, Herbal Essences, Batiste, Oscar Blandi, and trust me when I say this is the best of the best.  If you are looking for a product to give second day hair some oomph, absorb oils, and have hair on the finer side you will love this stuff.  Now do I feel like my hair looks like it’s freshly washed after using this stuff?  Well no, but I think that’s an unfair standard to hold any dry shampoo to.  For me, I try to wash my hair every other day because of everything we have heard about the damage of washing hair daily so on the days I don’t wash this is great for reviving and refreshing my locks.  I just spray on my roots and it gives great texture and volume that lasts throughout the day. There are only two down sides to this product.  First, it’s hard to find.  I haven't been able to find it at my local drugstores or Target recently and the only place I have been able to track it down has been Amazon.  (Hence me stocking up and buying three.  The obsession is real.)  The second drawback is that I do go through a bottle fairly quickly.  With every other day use I probably go through a bottle in two months or so.  Nevertheless I still think this dry shampoo is a rock star.

Garnier Fructis Dry Shampoo Review

I hope you guys enjoyed this week's Friday Favorite and will give this dry shampoo a try.  Isn't it the best when you find products at the drugstore you love and they work even better than their expensive counterparts?!  Maybe it's just me that gets this excited about this stuff.  But on a more personal note, I wanted to apologize for the lack of blog content this week.  My grandfather passed away last week and I had been spending time in New York with family.  Always a tough time losing a loved one, but it was great to be around my friends & family and back home in Syracuse.  For me, losing someone always serves as a reminder to live each day to the fullest and never take anything for granted.    Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all are having a wonderful week and have a fun filled weekend planned!
