Garnier Ultimate Blends Repairing Hair Food Papaya 3-in-1 Hair Mask | Review

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! I have been so busy lately with work & more plans since we are finally coming out of lockdown, but I of course still wanted to find time to sit down and write a new blog post. Today I am reviewing the Garnier Ultimate Blends Repairing Hair Food Papaya 3-in-1 hair mask! I have used about half of the container now and wanted to share my overall thoughts since the Garnier Hair Food range is really popular right now (I even have a post up about the Garnier Hair Food Watermelon Shampoo & Conditioner if you fancy a read)

This Garnier hair mask is an affordable hair care option at £6.99 for 390ml of product, so it’s a great purchase if you’re wanting to give your hair that extra care, but don’t want to spend a fortune.

Garnier offer a range of hair masks depending on your hair type/goals. The papaya one which I have here is ‘repairing’ and is targeted at those of us with damaged hair. Garnier claim that this hair mask will visibly reduce up to half of your spilt ends in just one use. It has a ‘melting’ texture which will instantly absorb into the hair without weighing it down.

This is a 3-in-1 product so you can use it multiple ways. Firstly as a rinse out hair mask – which is the main way I used this and is the reason I purchased. Secondly, as a traditional conditioner, and thirdly as a leave in conditioner.

The packaging is a basic but ideal tub. It is easy to scoop out enough product.

The papaya scent of this isn’t my favourite – at first I really hated the scent but I have managed to look past it the more I use it.

This is a vegan & cruelty free product!

As mentioned I have been using this Garnier product as a hair mask after washing my hair as normal. I apply a decent sized scoop of this throughout the lengths of my hair and leave it in for about 3 minutes before rising out.

The texture of this is lovely – it is a pretty thick cream with a ‘melting’ texture as Garnier say. It is easy to distribute this throughout the hair and coat every section.

After rinsing this out my hair feels instantly smoother and softer. It definitely goes a long way in conditioning my hair and I can see why this is aimed at people with damaged hair. My hair is a bit damaged but it isn’t too bad. After using this my hair is so much sleeker and it looks healthy. Throughout the days of not washing my hair, the ends can become pretty dry and rough looking, so this really does help my hair regain is smoothness and shine!

I can’t say this mask actually ‘repairs’ my hair, as I still have split ends. However it really does help with the feel and appearance so I would recommend, particularly as the hair mask is so affordable.

What do you think? Have you used any products from the Garnier Hair Food range? Let me know below!

    It’s great that this is good at conditioning, my ends get dry when I go several days without washing too so this sounds great. I don’t think anything truly fixes split ends so I’m not surprised you didn’t see results there. Love that it’s only 3 minutes though, I hate ones that need 15+, I never know what to do with myself while I’m waiting. This sounds amazing for the price! x

      Yeah that’s true I guess it’s not really possible to fix split ends despite promises!! I agree, 3 mins is ideal and for the price I can’t complain xxx
