I don’t know why it is, but I seem to always be using some sort of conditioning treatment on my hair. As women, between styling and the stresses of the season (all the seasons) I think our hair is pretty frequently due for a little (or a lottle) TLC. We want our hair to look good, and for it to look good, we have to treat it good (which can be said for a lot of things). In between all those conditioners I have had my share of duds as I’m sure you have too – you know the ones, the lotions and potions that weigh your hair down, make it feel extra oily or dry, mess with the color, take ages to work – if they work, and overall rain on your parade. The Garnier Damage Eraser Heal and Seal Treatment – which I picked up at Target (I know, I know, it’s kryptonite) – falls quickly into the category of my all time favorite treatments.
Unlike those aforementioned duds, the Heal & Seal Treatment (I know, the bottle is a little worse for wear) didn’t weigh down my hair or make it feel like there was a thin bit of residue on my hair or scalp. I was actually surprised about this, as you’re meant to use the 60-second conditioner in the shower following your normal conditioner. Usually post conditioning treatments can be heavy and especially oily, this one you just apply, wait a minute, and rinse out. Formulated with phyto-keratin complex and cupuacu butter (which is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols, the tree itself being a cousin to the cocoa tree), the treatment is designed to repair and seal hair fiber without any build up. I suspect the fatty cupuacu butter lends to the treatments it’s “melting” sensation – where the treatment gets thinner as you apply it to your hair.
The consistency is a nice thick liquid, light yellow, and smells incredibly good. In fact, even if it was just a “good” treatment I’d still probably buy it because it leaves my hair smelling amazing well after my shower. I started using this right after I came back from Florida and the depths of a very chlorine rich pool, so naturally my hair was really tough to handle and brittle to the touch. After using up a bottle of this, it’s now incredibly soft and better than normal. I love it. This one is definitely a winner in my book, and I plan on replacing it as soon as possible!
