This £3.49 Garnier hair mask is being hailed as the ‘holy grail’ of haircare

The countdown is on for the grand reopening of hair salons across England on Saturday 4 July. But if you don’t already have an appointment in the diary with your hairdresser, you’re likely staring down the end of a very long waiting list, with some London salons reporting waitlists of more than 2,000 customers.

If that’s you, home haircare and DIY methods are still very much a priority to keep those locks as healthy as possible until you can finally get back in the salon chair. Which goes some way to explaining why the Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food 3-in-1 Normal Hair Mask Treatment in the scent Aloe Vera & Coconut has shot to the top of Amazon’s beauty bestsellers list.

The £3.49 ‘Hair Food’ has garnered nearly 2,000 reviews on the site, with more than quarters of reviewers giving it a five star rating.

One happy customer said: ‘Love this product. I bought 3 jars! Great for low porosity 4c afro hair. Makes hair soft and mositurised. Great smell too. The fact that it is 3 in 1 means i dont need to buy deep cond, detangler and leave in. I will def recommend to others.’

Amazon hair mask


While another reported: ‘I am so happy Amazon started selling this in the UK at a reasonable price, used to buy loads of it in Italy and was very bummed I couldn’t find it here. My hair looks and feels so much better when I use this product, and even my hairdresser was amazed by how healthy and strong it was.’
