Garnier Fructis #ColorShield Review

I colour my hair at home a few times a year because I'm getting older and like to hide the gray hair and I'm too cheap to visit the salon all the time for upkeep.  I often choose red which unfortunately seems to fade the fastest.  I was sent these products through Influenster to use on my coloured hair.  They claim to protect and shield hair colour from fade out, wash out and dry out.

First of all I love the light fruity smell which seems quite common with the fructis line of hair products.  The leave in shine spray in particular has a delicious cinnamon - pomegranate scent.  I found the shampoo feels quite heavy on the hair like it's coating it but it rinses out nicely leaving my hair squeaky clean.  The conditioner is thin but effective so you end up using less of it.  The leave in spray I use if I will be blow drying my hair and it seems to protect from the heat of the blow dryer.  Overall I would use the products but they wouldn't be my first choice.  I still love the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line best!  

I can't really comment on how well these products keep colour from fading as I've only been using them for a week so far which isn't long enough to assess that.  Hopefully the #ColorShield will live up to it's name and my hair will remain a vibrant red for longer than usual.
