Pros:Smells great, easy styling, holds all day.

Cons:Produces build-up if hair not washed daily.

The Bottom Line: My nephew is quite a hunk now he styles his hair. This is a great product for hair that just doesn't want to style.


My 12-year-old nephew came to stay with us for a couple of weeks last month and during one of our conversations, he complained about his hair. He has short, blonde, straight hair with no curl and it just hangs like a wet blanket. I could see what he meant. He said no matter what he did with it, it always ended up the same with no style at all. I decided to do something about it with the permission of my sister-in-law who said, “Puleeeze, yes, do something with that mop!”

I have had lots of luck with Garnier Fructis styling products and when I went shopping that day, I spied Garnier Fructis Surf Hair Texture Paste which I picked up for $3.99 at my local CVS Pharmacy. Let’s see if it would make a difference.


Ingredients:

Aqua Water , Cera Alba Beeswax , PEG-100 Stearate , Glyceryl Stearate , Cetearyl Alcohol , Phenoxyethanol Stearyl Alcohol , PEG-150 SMDI Copolymer , PPG-1-Trideceth-6 , PEG-192 Apricot Kernel Glycerides , PEG-70 Mango Glycerides , Polyquaternium-37 , Limonene , Linalool , Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate , Propylene Glycol , Caramel , Butylparaben , Methylparaben , Citral , Citrus Limonum Lemon Extract , Amyl Cinnamal , Parfum Fragrance

This product comes in a green and yellow 5.1oz plastic jar. The product is creamy and cream in color with a fruity scent.


Garnier’s Claim:

Surf Hair. With Fruit Micro-Waxes. Garnier Fructis Style

Surf Hair: Got the beach in your soul? Get Surf in your hair! Garnier Fructis Style Surf Hair, with fruit micro-waxes, creates wind-swept textured hairstyles with a long-lasting hold.

What Is Surf Hair Texture Paste?

A new generation styling product that provides definition and volume to hair with a flexible hold and a non-gloss, matte finish.

Get a tousled, messy look with high definition - just like when you spend a day at the beach, all year round!

How Does It Work?

Garnier Fructis Style Surf hair with fruit micro-waxes has powerful holding technologies and unique mattifying agents that texturize and define hair without greasiness or residue

Take a dime size amount of product, rub between your palms and apply to slightly damp/dry hair and style. Define individual areas with your fingers.

For best results use the Garnier Fructis System of shampoos and conditioners.

Create Your Style: Surf Hair Styles:

Beach Head: Apply product sparingly to dry hair. Using your fingers, apply additional product to individual areas to create a textured, messy look.

Tousled Tendrils: Apply product to slightly damp hair. Twist hair around fingers, using product to sculpt and style each section.

Blow dry hair for a tousled, wind-blow look.
Finish any style with fructis style hairspray for long-lasting hold.


My Experience:

Well, at first, my nephew said he didn’t want any “sissy stuff” in his hair but I talked him into it when I said he could wash it out if he didn’t like it. He is also a skateboarder and when he saw the name of the product, he said, “Alright, my kinda style.”

He refused to have it blow-dried, which I expected. He is at that “I am a man” stage of his puberty. I decided to go with the instructions and after he showered and washed his hair, I applied the product. This is called a paste but it is more of a cream with a holding effect. It has that familiar Garnier fruity scent that I think is fresh and clean smelling. I applied about a dime size to my palm and rubbed my hands together. Then, I ran my fingers through his hair sporadically until it was spread evenly. If you twist small wads of hair around your fingers and pull them out carefully, the paste holds it in position. I did this irregularly all over his head and when it dried, I just buffed it up with my fingers a little and it left a very tousled but cute head of hair. The hold relaxed a bit after a half hour or so and it became more natural looking.

My nephew was ecstatic. “How the heck d’you do that, it’s great?” He asked, as I beamed. I carefully instructed him how to style it and sent the jar home with him when he left. His mother loved the look also. He came over a couple more times for help but he finally has it down and he looks really cute.


Conclusion:

I didn’t think I would be able to do anything with my nephew’s hair; it is so lank and straight. Garnier Fructis Surf Hair Texture Paste, however, put a nice tousled style into it that he loved. I think that this product might produce some build-up if the hair is not washed daily. However, he washes his hair every day but tells me that the style only starts to drop out around dinner. For a boy as active as he, I think that’s pretty good. He says all his friends think it’s “crunk” (don’t know what that means but I assume it is a good thing).

After my experience, I would recommend this for boys and for women with short hair. It creates a cute, lazy, tousled look to fine straight hair. Almost makes me want to cut my own short.
