READERS PLEASE DON'T GET OFFENDED. I put African American in the title of my review because I always thought of Garnier to be for Caucasian people or for people who have the same texture of hair. I'm proud to say that Garnier has proved me wrong. My daughter is African American and had hair down her back when she was younger. The texture of her hair is curly. But it can still be styled into an afro. LOL! But it was impossible to manage. So, I got it permed when she was about 9 yrs old. It was one of the BIGGEST mistakes I've ever made in my life. Her hair kept breaking until I just let the relaxer grow out altogether. Now, she is all natural. I began taking her to a salon to get her hair flat ironed because we couldn't find a good hair product that would allow her to achieve the straight look she desired. But that got too expensive. So, we began using another product (Tresemme Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Spray) to flat iron her hair with. That's a great product too. But, if it wasn't applied to her entire head of hair, it woud cause breakage. So, I decided the best solution would be to deep condition her hair before applying the product she uses to straighten it. I saw Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Strength Reconstructing Butter Hair Mask in WalMart and decided to give it a try. And the only thing I can say is WOW! After applying it, she can comb right through it without a problem. If you were to see the before and after pics of my daughter's hair, you wouldn' believe it. Just beautiful!!! You can feel and see the difference. She or I usually style it and it looks just like she went to a salon. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
