Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food Mask Papaya & Banana


A few weeks ago I mentioned in my Superdrug haul (see herethat I was on a journey to take better care of my hair to try and repair some of the heat damage I’ve caused myself over the years. After some extensive research and watching @hasinikay talk through the ingredients in haircare products on TikTok (I highly recommend checking out her channel) I decided to cut out silicone from my routine. I had heard so many good things about the Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food products due being made up of 98% of natural ingredients whilst also being silicone free (yay) so I had to give them a go.

Each of the Garnier Hair Foods masks have three different functions. A condition, rinse out mask or leave in conditioner. Personally I only ever use masks as exactly that as I find this leaves the best results, my hair also gets greasy very quickly, so it doesn't mix well with leave in treatments. I opted for this mask first as it was specifically for damaged hair. After using the Papaya mask for a couple of weeks I can't rave about it enough. It has definitely strengthened my ends and given them the nourishment they were crying out for. I have heard quite a few people say they don't like the smell, but I think it is divine! I was originally using it twice a week, but I have had to cut this down as my hair gets used to products quite quickly and the results become less prominent as time goes on. Grab the Papaya Mask for £3.49 on the Superdrug website (af).

After loving the Papaya mask so much I decided to grab the Banana Hair Mask as this is the one I have seen bloggers rave about the most! I have only used this once so far, but I already love it! As mentioned above I loved the smell of the Papaya mask despite what others have said, whereas I'm not a huge Banana fan, so this wasn't my favourite scent, although this was obviously expected. Like I had done with the Papaya mask, I left this on my hair for 5 minutes (a little longer than the suggested 3 minutes) and then rinsed it out. I use an old t-shirt to try my hair to reduce the risk of breakage (trust me this has really helped!) My hair has been SO soft for several days since using it which I'm putting down to the Shea ingredient as this is extremely beneficial to your locks! One problem I have always had with my hair is how chaotic it is when I wake up in the morning. But after using the mask I have seen a noticeable difference over the last few days as it hasn't looked like it's usual wild self which is an absolute dream! This mask has definitely nourished my dry hair and tamed the pesky flyaways! I would highly recommend getting your hands on this if you're looking for something to treat your dry hair! I managed to find this in Savers for £3.49 (af).
