After reading so many great reviews on this shampoo, I decided to give it a try. At first smell it seemed to be a match made in hair heaven. All of those pieces of hair that had fallen off over the years, all of those broken heart edges seemed to finally be worth it. After all, I might have found the one: the one shampoo that would make my head stop spinning from frustration due to breakage and split ends. Silly, superficial me. This shampoo is all about the looks and the scent, but it can't make a girl feel good. After using half the bottle I realized my hair broke off the same amount it used to, and new split ends were smiling up at me. I have thick, coarse, hard to love hair, and I suppose the shampoo couldn't hold up to it. I might try a different version of Garnier, but from what I witnessed I'm not impressed. Effectiveness Did not treat split ends or damages to hair. Scent Match made in scent heaven.
