Exclamation warning

Now that I'm all clear again.. *whew* I have to warn everyone..

DO NOT USE GARNIER FRUCTIS SHAMPOO!!!! Ugh... I'm honestly not sure if it was just a personal chemistry allergic reaction or if it was the shampoo itself... but oh my god... I had not had a break out like that since I was 13... major cysts and horrible breakouts anywhere that shampoo touched my skin.... that stuff is just bad bad bad news.

If you are using it or you just really badly want to try it... test a patch of skin you can cover up and make sure it doesn't do the same to you.. trust me.. it's taken me a full month to completely clear up what it did to my skin.. back to clarifying shampoos ONLY for me.

Re: warning

I can actually pin-point by recent breakout starting at the exact same time I started using Fructis products. Evil, Evil stuff!!

Re: warning

it seems silly doesn't it? it's just shampoo... you're washing it all out and scrubbing afterwards anyway... but the stuff is just aweful... I'm still healing from the last two cysts it left me.. and I hadn't had a single cyst in *years* before this stuff

Re: warning

Yeah... it gave me huge cysts & whiteheads on my back. I have finally got rid of it all but I still have a few purple scars from the cysts. Grrrrrr... that made me so mad because I didn't realize for a while that it was causing it. Maybe its the fruit extract that causes the break outs? I have had good luck with ThermaSilk... no breakouts and my hair is all nice-n-shiny!

Re: warning

it took me a while to figure out what it was too... unfortunately it was a month before I discovered it and by then the damage was full blown

Re: warning

heh heh.. Its an evil ploy that Garnier has with all the OTC acne med. companies!! Garnier brings on the pimples (and no one really suspects its the Fructis products because it makes your hair so soft-n-shiny) and the companies make bank off the poor souls trying to get rid of the acne it caused! *******S!!!

Yeah I know... Im a huge dork
