Influenster and L'Oreal Canada's Mystery Box Revealed!

The wait is finally over, L'Oreal and Influenster have finally revealed the Mystery Brand! It is Garnier Fructis' "Damage Eraser" line.  I received the full line of the "Damage Eraser"...complete with Shampoo, Conditioner, Split-End Repair Serum and Reconstructive Butter.


SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER: 
The claim is that the shampoo and conditioner reconstructs strength and helps repair hair. Protects hair from future damage.  The formula contains Phyto-Keratin complex, with plant-based proteins and active fruit concentrate, cupuacu butter with natural lipids.

SHAMPOO RESULTS: 
After using the shampoo, my hair felt shiny, bouncy, full of volume and healthy. I honestly can not believe how impressed I am with the results.  I have tried many salon brands and they have always fallen short. It's nice to try out a product that really gives me the results that I love, which is shiny hair with lots of bounce and volume.  The only con I had with the shampoo is that it did leave my hair somewhat tangly.

CONDITIONER RESULTS: 
The conditioner was a nice thick formula that left my hair smooth and soft and tangle free. What I love about this conditioner is that it detangled my hair, and did not weigh it down.



SPLIT ENDS BANDAGE SERUM: 
Helps to prevent split ends and reconstructs and preserves hairs strength.

RESULTS: 
The Split-End Bandage Serum is a nice thick creamy serum which I applied on towel dried hair.  Although, I do not feel that split end serums get rid of damage...only a good pair of scissors can do that, it did lessen the frizz of the hair and smooth my ends, which I did notice after blowdrying my hair.


STRENGTH RECONSTRUCTING BUTTER: |
Rich, indulgent butter is designed to intensely reconstruct hair's strength for strong, rejuvenated and shiny-looking hair.  Use weekly for optimal results.

RESULTS:
This is a great hair mask that leaves my hair extra conditioned. I have fine, wavy hair and it was nice to use a product that did not weigh down my hair.



OVERALL:
I'm really enjoying all the products that were sent to me through Influenster and L'Oreal Canada/Garnier Canada.  I always find products that are either for damage repair or volume and I have to compromise one for another.  Surprisingly, these products actually provided me with both volume and shine. I'm talking big, bouncy, shiny, healthy looking hair! I really recommend these products to anyone who is dealing with damaged hair due to styling products, age, colouring and blowdrying.

Another bonus, you will get salon results with drugstore pricing! Imagine that, affordable and helps with damaged hair!

The scent of these products have a slight banana/mango scent that is light and not overpowering.  A note: I have fine, wavy hair and my personal results were amazing.  If you have thicker, course hair, your results may be different than mine.

Disclaimer: The above are my honest opinions and although the products were sent to me for free to review, I have provided my honest experiences and opinions, as always!
