Below I put together a quick tutorial/demo of an $8 twist out routine.

I decided to try out the new Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask after hearing about it on youtube and coming across it at a cvs the other day. It was only $2.99 for the 3.4 ounce and there is a 13.5 ounce for only $6.90 on amazon. I called it the 3-in-1 conditioner in the title because it claims to function  as a washout conditioner, hair mask and leave-in. Another potential perk is that this conditioner is silicone and paraben free making it a very affordable curly girl friendly cure all.

  1. As a conditioner I am looking for it to have slip so that I can detangle my hair. 
  2. As a mask I'm looking for it to make my hair feel softer and more defined
  3. As a leave in it has to actually absorb and retain the moisture of my hair and I'm going to be particular about that because I have low porosity hair. 
I have to say that for the price this actually brought a lot to the table. Usually I expect to have to splurge on a silicone free deep treatment. This conditioner had pretty decent slip. It's not very thick, it has a "conventional" conditioner scent and feel but it absorbed quickly into my hair and kept its staying power through a light rinse. I wanted to still see how it might work as a wash out product so I lightly wet my hair and scrunched out the excess. You'll see from the video that it came out soft and even gave a bit of definition. Well played Garnier.
