It was the phase when I wanted to change or experiment some hair care products came Garnier India’s launch of Ultra Blends, a new range of paraben-free shampoos and conditioners blended with love and natural ingredients. Of the five loving blends for India, Henna & Blackberry Nourishing Shine Shampoo & Conditioner for dull, dry, lifeless hair intrigued me, and I had to literally hunt them down. There is “a blend for every hair type,” and I felt this blend is for me. I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for quite some time now, and I have already reviewed about the shampoo HERE. Now my thoughts about this conditioner!

My Experience with New Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Nourishing Shine Conditioner
Packaging: This conditioner comes in an opaque purple-colored plastic bottle with a flip-top golden cap. How I wish it to be like their translucent shampoo bottle 😦 Anyways, having an inverted bottle form, it stands well on its cap. The cap has a beautiful leaf engraving, representing the brand’s logo. It can perfectly hold one’s thumb, making it easy to flip open the cap. Unfortunately, this cap is not closing tightly as that of the shampoo. I doubt if it is travel friendly. The front label has some classy and vibrant prints, whereas the back label sources all the necessary information. It is sleek, sturdy, and leak-proof. The packaging is really good.
Texture: The texture of this conditioner is very light, thick, and creamy—a sort of mousse like—and is ideal for daily use. It is white in color and smells wonderful. Moreover, the heavenly fragrance lingers on the hair for quite some time as well. Its lightweight texture makes it to apply smoothly on hair strands.
Performance: This conditioner is a gentle, paraben-free, and natural extracts one. It is customized for Indian hair to offer wholesome, natural blends for truly beautiful hair. Its core ingredients are henna and blackberries. Pure henna is known for its deep conditioning and nourishing power that infuses life into dull and dry locks, whereas blackberries with their high concentration of anti-oxidants and vitamin C makes your hair shine with life. When this conditioner is infused with these two ingredients, its goodness comes along without any saying.
It is an easy-to-use, everyday conditioner. I happened to use this conditioner only two weeks after using its shampoo, and I could make out the difference immediately. It just complements well with the shampoo. It applies evenly and is effective. It washes off very easily without any residue. It conditions well the hair tips, which generally tend to get dry faster. It made my hair soft and luminous. It did give an instant healthy look to my hair. Usually, I used to see some hair breakage while applying conditioner to my wet hair, but that was not the case with this conditioner, which is so incredible. Although my hair is not frizzy, my baby hair is untameable even with serum, leave-in-conditioner, and so on if I travel in a two-wheeler or if I blow dry my hair. But with this conditioner, my hair just sets in place and looks frizz and tangle free. I am super impressed Garnier! I did not face any hair problem after its use. This conditioner’s claim to give nourished, vibrant, and shiny hair with every wash is true to its core. The only downside is that it did weigh down my hair a little bit. So I slashed the quantity of the conditioner I use, and voila, it worked! Overall, it is an amazing conditioner and worth every penny.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase New Garnier Ultra Blends Henna & Blackberry Nourishing Shine Conditioner
It gets a big YES from me! Its claims are so attractive, and it is paraben free as well. I would like to try other variants from this range as I am all for their rich ingredients that are blended with love, just for our hair! As a shampoo + conditioner combo, it works the best.
