With summer months soon approaching, it is time to get serious about moisture. Aside from protecting our skin and eyes from paotentially damaging sunrays, it is also important to protect our hair.

Garnier Fructis’s Marvelous Oil 5-Action Hair Elixir is nothing short of a miracle product.

As the name suggests, this moisturizing oil has five different uses: a pre-shampoo treatment to prime hair for gentler cleansing, a conditioner booster to improve detangling, a blow dry accelerator for faster drying, an ends finisher for sleaker non-split ends or as an overnight leave-in treatment.

The special blend of Cupuacu and Brazilnut oil is the perfect combination for added moisture and shine. These oils also have deep-penetrating healing power to not only keep hair shiny, but to repair old damage as well.

When I first came across this product, I had the same concern that I always have when I see a new hair oil treatment: build-up. I find my hair can get weighed down from heavy oil moisturizers. It also gets greasy which causes break-outs. I found Garnier’s Moisture Elixir to be one of the lightest serums I have ever used.

It adds the perfect amount of light-weight moisture without leaving product build-up.

This product rings in at an affordable $5.99 and can be found anywhere in stores like Target or Wal-Mart. It comes in a convenient pump-bottle to help conserve the serum.

I find this product gentle enough for everyday use and will use it to keep my hair moisturized throughout the summer months. I’ve also started checking out Garnier’s line of leave-in conditioners and other products, also infused with oils, for additional protection and moisture.
