No, I didn't go blonde nor am planning to, but I decided to get the Garnier Ultimate Blends Blonde Illuminator conditioner and oil from the range to try them out and lighten my hair slightly for the summer. Chamomile is a common and natural ingredient used to lighten hair, and it happens to be the main feature in the Garnier Ultimate Blends Blonde Illuminator Collection. In need of both a new conditioner and hair oil, went for this line as they're affordable and would brighten up my locks.
The Ultimate Blends Blonde Illuminator Conditioner promises to illuminate your natural blonde with chamomile and acacia honey, leaving hair feeling silky to the touch. This is a pretty average conditioner: the texture is not very thick and it doesn't soften my hair a lot. It is easy to rinse out and smells nice but doesn't seem to be doing that much for my hair other than perhaps lightening it slightly and leaving it mildly soft. I don't think I will be purchasing this again as there are better conditioners out there but if you only need a lightweight conditioner for blonde hair you might like this product.
The Ultimate Blends Blonde Illuminator Oil mentions having an incredibly soft, lightweight texture and a delicate flowery fragrance that infuses blonde hair with luminosity, leaving it with a summery shine and silky soft to the touch. The texture of this oil is not heavy and absorbs easily into my hair, it has a very similar scent to the conditioner but doesn't linger. It doesn't weigh down my hair but again, doesn't leave it extremely soft, which is what I expect from my hair products. I have noticed though that my hair is looking a bit lighter under the sun which was the main reason I got this oil for. Still got lots of product left even after using 3 pumps per application so it will last me a long time. Do try out this product if you seek to brighten up your hair naturally and don't need a lot of conditioning/softening to your hair.
