Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition reformulation?

I'm a sure fan of the GFTN conditioner and have been since it was introduced. I've recently run out and naturally bought another bottle, but I didn't notice anything strange about it until I was standing in the shower. The cap wasn't the same as all of my old bottles, and upon reading the back I discovered that this new bottle was eco-friendly. Fine by me, but once I started raking the product through my hair I found that it smelled different. Good, but definitely different. I had my old, empty bottle sitting in the corner of my shower, so I compared the ingredients and found that this new bottle was reformulated and now includes amodimethicone. I've read somewhere that the a-cone is one of the more moisturizing ones and it is included in the Wen cleansing conditioners which I have liked in the past. However, this change actually did upset me because I do consider myself to be CG. I'll have to finish the bottle and whether I like the new formula or not remains to be seen, but I just thought I'd give everyone a heads up because I hadn't seen this discussed anywhere else.

I checked the GFTN while I was shopping tonight and the ingredients were fine. So if it's new, it's VERY new.

The GFTN I have is the same ol' formula, but I haven't had to buy any new GFTN for a few weeks at least, so I don't know what's out on the shelves now.

I'll be bummed if they've changed things because it's a 'good old reliable' that's affordable and readily available on the ground.

I just encountered this this morning and I ran right here after washing my hair in the stuff. It feels so slippery now and smells kind of overly fragrant. I have a feeling I'd need to use shampoo along with it or I'll start to get buildup.

I've been using GFTN almost since I started CG. I tried a whole bunch of stuff and settled on this and loved it. I feel like I'm back to square one. not looking forward to combing the shelves tonight for a new conditioner.

Just got back from the store -- Bought four 24oz bottles of GFTN, but only after I stood there in the aisle reading the ingredients list of each one to be sure they were all the old formula.

The bright side I see to the situation is that now the PJ in me is excited about investigating new conditioners to introduce into my rotation of products.

Finally have a routine that works

Wash at night, add products, plop in a t-shirt overnight, then diffuse in the morning!! It is great finally getting to sleep in
Yep. Just last night. But GFTN is HG for me. Very easy to rationalize. Of course I might see 6 other conditioners to try at the same time, but that's the risk I have to take. : )

Yep I'll be dang! The new bottle I just purchased from Target four days ago has the a-cone. I didn't even bother looking at the ingredients until I saw this thread. I am so mad right now I'm looking for my receipt to return this crap.
Well crap. Crap crap CRAP!!

I'll be stocking up tomorrow. Ugh

I know this is "old news" but I just started on my last bottle of the old formula, so I decided it deserves a rant. I didn't find out about the change until a few months ago. Guess everybody beat me to the stores for the old formula, so when I use up this 13oz bottle it will be gone forever!!

Makes me mad that the makers changed it:
IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!!!!
I don't recall seeing amodimethicone in my bottle, and it's now 2013...I'll have to check it again. I will say Ive been noticing lately that GFTN CO has being very heavy on my hair, making it dirty/greasy feeling. I think it ay be the reason for some nad buildup & flakes ive been having lately, I try not to CO the top of my head, but sometimes th eproducts spreads upward. I tried natures gate aloe vera conditioner, and my curls finally turned out nice....one of three or so good hair days ive had in the past month. (I also moved 1 month ago and now have city water, where i use to have well water).
Low/Med porosity, very fine, low/med elasticity & density, 3A
AKA hard to work with hair!


Low-Poo: Kenra Volumizing shampoo, AG Fast Food shampoo
CO: AG Ultramoist, AO GPB, Nature's Gate Aloe Vera
Gel: GFCC mousse, HETT, Aquage Megagel
Also: Aloe Vera juice or Alba Leave-in. Weekly ACV rinse.
Wishlist: YTC low-poo, Elucence poo, Bioterra Curl Creme, AGEbeautiful Strengthening trtment, SS Repairing Protein Trtment, LuxyHair ext's

The UK version (Repair & Shine) has definitely been reformulated to contain amodiethicone, I got caught out by a new bottle, my hair is horrible.
