It comes in three different formulas : Deep Nourish, Frizz Defy, and Color Illuminate.

The product retails for around $5.99 so it’s really budget friendly.

Garnier claims that it can be used 5 different ways:

Hair oil treatment for dry, damaged hair.

This hair oil treatment for dry, damaged hair, with custom-blended Cupuaçu & Brazilnut oil, nourishes and helps repair.

How to use:

Marvelous Oil can be used in any of 5 ways! Try a different use each day.

1. Pre-Shampoo Treatment: Apply to hair (wet or dry) before shampooing to help prime hair locks for gentle cleaning.
2. Boost Conditioning: Add 1 or 2 drops to your conditioner to help get rid of pesky knots and tangles.
3. Blow-Dry Protector: Apply to damp to help protect when blow drying.
4. Finish With Hi-Watt Shine: Apply to damp or dry ends to help smooth split ends and tame flyaways.
5. Treat Hair Overnight: To restore softness while you sleep, work into wet or dry hair and leave in overnight.

My thoughts

I used Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oils 4 out of the 5 possible ways.  I didn’t put it in my conditioner.

I think this is one of the better drug store hair products and hair oils. I regularly use a Matrix Oil, and this isn’t too far off from the high end product. Would I repurchase?  I don’t know. I love the Matrix product so I don’t see a reason to switch.  However, if I needed to make a choice between a $6 bottle or a $20 bottle, I would pick the Garnier.

It smells super fruity, like a typical Garnier product.  The scent doesn’t linger very long, but it does stick around for a bit.  I think it smells delightful.

I wasn’t crazy about the color.  It was very yellow. Sort of reminded me of olive oil.  However, it did absorb quickly and it didn’t weight my hair down.

Have you tried Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oils?
