Default Garnier Fructis Smoothing Milk

I think it works great for frizz. Has anyone had any experiences with it?

I love GF leave-in cond, but the smoothing milk unfortunately has cyclopentasiloxane in it. That's the cone that bonds like liquid plastic & is hard to remove. So it's a no go for me.The leave in gives me lots of frizz controlon wet & dry hair though.

I know what you mean! I can still feel it in my hair after I wash it which is weird...but thats just the smoothing milk right?
I like curl and shine, but I was looking for more of a smooth look.

Yes, it's just the milk, I believe. Do you mean, smooth as in you're trying to straighten.....? Or you just want curls with less volume?

Maybe you should try the Sleek & Shine, that may help you achieve a smooth look

I know I'll be shunned for this but...

When I was straightening my hair/before comming here and knew anything about ingredients; this was a staple in my straightening routine. I loved how soft and smooth my hair felt with this. Also it gave me lots of body and volume. However, I've never used it with a curly style.

Before I knew of CG, that crap gave me visible greenish buildup within days of use. Same with the curl cream- don't remember which one I used though. It was very waxy.

Despite rumors to the contrary, there are no hair police on the Board. If it worked great for you, & you're not CG, go for it. My BF loves this cone for his 2C hair. For me, it's like removing liquid plastic.

this paired with the GFSCC was absolutely fabulous! the frizz was def nixed using those two, but used with anything else it was not as effective at all.

I lurk a lot, I change my hair color a lot. It's currently black and bsl when wet and beyond my shoulders still when dry.

Now I will stop procrastinating and get back to what I was supposed to be doing before I got on here.

Any questions?
