Product Review: Giovanni Nutrafix Hair Reconstructor

Hello my beautiful readers,

I bought this deep conditioner because there was a lot of buzz about it on youtube and when I researched the reviews the vast majority said it was a great conditioner. I was deciding between the shea moisture and the Giovanni because due to a lot of blowouts over the last few months my hair was looking a bit dry and unhealthy with a looser texture when I washed my hair than normal. Other than cutting out heat I wanted to improve the present health of my hair.

Just a general disclaimer that the review of this product is in no way sponsored this is my honest thoughts and opinion of a product that was purchased with my own money.

So with that being said, let's begin!

The Purchase&The Promise
I purchased this product from Amazon for about £7.39.This product promises to penetrate damaged over processed hair by penetrating the hair shaft and going to the heart of the problem of chemically damaged and heat styled hair. It promises to undo the damage present in hair.

Firstly I sectioned my hair into 6 then  co-washed my hair with a bottle of Tresemme’s natural conditioner. After co-washing my hair and rinsing it through I applied the reconstructor to each section and then I retwisted it. I wanted to put a plastic cap over my head for deeper conditioning but since I wanted to give a review that will match the instructions I left it for the 10 minutes as instructed then rinsed each section of my hair thoroughly.

Aqua (purified water) cetyl alcohol, stearalkonium chloride, tocopherol (vitamin E), citric acid, phenoxyethanol, natural fragrance, *helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, *glycine soja (soybean) seed extract, *betula alba extract, *malva sylvestris (mallow) extract, *achillea millefolium extract, *chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, *equisetum arvense extract, *lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, *rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, *salvia sclarea (clary) extract, *thymus vulgaris (thyme) extract, *tussilago farfara (coltstool) flower extract, *urtica dioica (nettle) extract.*USDA Certified Organic.

The Smell and Consistency
The smell of this product is a very natural smell it’s not floral or sweet smelling in any way. In fact, the smell is very similar if not the same as the light leave in conditioner. The consistency is quite thick but when applied to the hair it softens and blends right into your strands with little or no effort. Despite it's not a bad smell I really like sweet smelling hair products even if it's lightly fragranced with natural oils so I’m not a big fan of the smell, but I LOVE the consistency.

Does it live up to its promises?
Along with the other promises mentioned above to also add this product has on the back of the tube 3 distinct promises.

·         Re-energises tired damaged hair
·         Encourages thickness and volume
·         Fill in porous hair with thick proteins

When I applied this product to my hair I was a bit of a skeptic, after all, I have low porosity extremely thick and long 4C Hair and the reconstructor has been reviewed by different hair types. I tried a small amount in my hand first and rubbed it into one section getting ready to add some more before I could do that I was able to run my fingers through my hair so the slip is great even for thick, dry, tangled Tarzan hair lol. So in my opinion a little goes a long way when it comes to coating the hair it’s quite similar to the light leave in I used in the Giovanni range so I’m not sure if that’s a general factor with all of their product line but if so it is worth every penny as it will be great for long term use. Whether it encourages thickness and volume my hair is generally thick so I am not sure I will notice the difference but I can update you as to whether I have noticed the volume of my hair change when used over time.After coating all 6 sections I left my hair for 10 minutes to condition. When the 10 minutes was up I rinsed out each section and I was like “stop the press” to my amazement I could still run my fingers through each section my hair was soft and more manageable when I looked in the mirror my hair looked a lot healthy in terms of my curls but the moment of truth was after my hair was dry.  After my hair dried in a braid out for the next day, my hair looked darker less lifeless and extremely healthy. The Giovanni conditioner was mainly a protein treatment so I wasn’t looking for slip etc but it left me screaming this conditioner is giving my moisture conditioner a run for its money.

Would I purchase this again?
I’m currently ordering another one it’s in my basket in fear that Giovanni might change their formula because this product is too good to be true. In fact, I'll purchase a few bottles just in case. So, the answer to the question of purchase if you haven’t gotten the drift is a big fat yes I will purchase this product again and again and again.
