This Shampoo Is Not For African American Women
Posted by TAMBAM on 07/24/2007
SANDIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- After using garnier frutis shampoo which is suppose to be for "all" hair types and suppose to make your hair stronger I shampooed my hair with this product it stripped my hair so bad that my hair tightin up knoted up and tangled to a point that when I tried to comb my hair out which was very painfull pieces of my hair started to break off.Some pieces were so tangled and knoted that it had to get cut out I went from haveing hair past my shoulders to hair by my ears. When I contact garnier the person whom I spoke to told me that it just had to be someother product that I used. So when I assured her that I had been using the same produts on my hair all my life and the only thing I change was the fact that I used garnier frutise .She then told me that it was stress...........Clearly another way not to admit fault.........I am currently seeking a lawyer to sue garnier frutis for deception and fraud...............So I say to anyone african american this product is not for out hair better yet anyones hair dont use it

Anybody else think this poster looks familiar?

I'm not sure how you could prove the shampoo did it unless you saved the damaged hair and had a lab test it to verify your conclusions. If they could, you may get a settlement for personal damages, although it may not be much.

Reluctantly I'm gonna have to agree with shawnp80 on this one.

I have used both their shampoo and conditioner for months with no problems. Which formulation did you use?

Posted by Slimjim on 2007-07-25:
LOL, I'm with shawn and furniture's first post. Liddy, you're way off base here.
Posted by shawnp80 on 2007-07-25:
LMAO. Thanks Stewart and Slim. Lid that was very mean, take it back.

but then again if garnier put on the label not for this or that person then they'd get sued for that too so as a company they can't win.

I am a white woman. I used that shampoo too and my hair frizzed up like I was a black woman. I couldn't even get a comb into my hair for about a week. I did not go outside for that time because of the way my hair looked. I threw that bottle of shampoo out. The poster complaint just may be valid. You people just stop picking on people. There is something wrong with that shampoo. My hair also knotted up. I would of cut it too if it wasn't for the fact that my hair was already cut real short.

Sometimes I just get carried away, sorry people.

I am a white woman too, so are Lid and Stew. It works fine on my hair but makes my skin ashy.

I can understand your complaint. The people my sister and I lived with after our dad was killed at work were good people. Aunt Kink, I never found out her real name, that is all we ever knew her by, had hair like that of an AA, and so did the kids. I remember the times they had just combing their hair when the Indiana humidity went up. Regardless of race, this is a very real problem for people with a certain type of hair. I hope you can get this taken care of.

TB, either you need to take your dreadlocks out before combing your hair or you got a cheap weave job. Come on! Pics?
Posted by grandma005 on 2007-07-25:
As Starlord said nobody has the same kind of hair. Just because it works for you, doesn't mean it works for everybody. I bet that you have real thick hair. My hair is baby fine. This shampoo was supposed to make it look thicker. Instead I looked like something out of a horror movie.

grandma005, I have thick hair!

TB, can you find a different kind that won’t do that, I am sorry that happened to you. I use to have hair half way down my back, went it was wet but when it dried, well they use to call me cave man and I know what you mean about hard to comb.

I am also a white woman and my hair will act the same way if I only use (any) shampoo. I have to use a conditioner if I want to be able to get a brush/comb through it. I cannot use the 2 in 1 shampoos because I would never get a brush/comb through it.

Garnier Fructis Conditioner for Frizzy Hair
Posted by Garden on 08/14/2006
This has to be the absolute worst product on the market for curly hair!

My hair is curly and I live in the South where summer humidity makes my hair frizz, so I bought Garnier Fructis "Fortifying Cream Conditioner for frizzy, dry or unmanageable hair." What a mistake! It MADE my hair frizzy and dry. For years I used Citre Shine products, which were excellent, but the products were taken off the market last year. I bought up as much as I could, but now I'm out. If anyone out there can recommend a really good shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, please post it here. Whatever you do, don't buy Garnier Fructis!

Once you get on the site, just type in "Citre Shine" in the Shopping for field...therea are about 50 Citre Shine products listed for sale...and looks to be very reasonable.

Fructis is horrible stuff. I used it and it dried my wavy hair out!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2006-08-15:
I guess different hair types have different results...I use it all the time and it leaves my hair shiny an smelling goooood! Being that both of you had the same problem and you both have curly hair, that may be the diffenence, I don't have curly hair...As to poster stated she bought the kind for her curlyl hair and still had bad results...The company should be aware of this and maybe they can correct the problem.
Posted by garden on 2006-08-15:
Thanks for your suggestions. What a relief to be able to order Citre Shine products! I also took your suggestion to call Garnier Fructis. I told them what happened and that it had happened to someone else as well. They are sending me a mailing label to return the product so they can test it, and they are refunding my money. It seems the company cares. What a great outcome for posting on My 3 cents!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2006-08-15:
Like I said, they can't fix the problem if they aren't aware there is one! Good Job!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2006-08-15:
I wouldn't hurt to send them a sample of your hair with it...they may have some suggestions.
