Have You Tried It?

I almost bought one of Garnier Fructis new products, Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge 1 Minute Moisture-Plenish Treatment for Normal to Dry Hair because of the following ingredients:

AQUA/WATER/EAU, HYDROXYPROPYL STARCH PHOSPHATE, QUATERNIUM-87, STEARYL ALCOHOL, AMODIMETHICONE, BEHENTRIMONIUM, CHLORIDE, CETYL ESTERS, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, CANDELILLA CERA /CANDELILLA WAX/CIRE DE CANDELILL ,ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, PYRUS MALUS EXTR ACT/APPLE FRUI T E X TR ACT, TRIDECE TH-6, TRIE THANOL AMINE, ACT INIDIA, CHINENSIS WATER/KIWI FRUIT WATER, NIACINAMIDE, PYRIDOXINE HCl, CHLORHEXIDINE DIHYDROCHLORIDE, C I T R I C A C I D, H E X Y L C I N N A M A L , CETRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, SACCHARUM OF F ICIN A RUM E X T R AC T/ SUG A R C A N E E X T R A C T / E X T R A I T D E CANNE A SUCRE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, LYCIUM BARBARUM FRUIT EXTRACT, 2-OLEAMIDO-1,3-OCTADECANEDIOL, L I N A L O O L , A M Y L C I N N A M A L , PA S S I F LOR A EDU L I S F R U I T J U I C E, BISABOLOL, CITRUS MEDICA LIMONUM PEEL EXTRACT/LEMON PEEL EXTRACT, CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, CI 42090/BLUE 1, CI 42053/GREEN 3 F.I.L. D159107/2

However, when I saw the bolded (I bolded it) ingredient, I placed it back on the shelf. I remember using a product with Isopropyl Alcohol being the 10th ingredient, and it dried out my hair. After it was removed, it became one of my staple products.

If you've tried the Hydracharge, what were the results on your hair?

*experimenting and loving it!


It doesn't look like a very good conditioner to me. First and most important: there are silicones in it. And there aren't really a lot of moisturizing ingredients in it either, and also parfum is quite high on the ingriedient list and this can also dry out your hair.

The only silicone I see is amodimethicone which is a very mild, arguably water soluble cone. People usually don't experience build up with that one.

I would only be worried about the wax, but I'd be willing to try it.
