Looks like Garnier wanted to reach out to long haired customers, and though many of you might have seen these, they re new for me - so let me share:

A cute-and-funny one, with a gorgeous blond mane:

And an ad for India, where women traditionally keep their long tresses - i totally drooled over this one:

I've seen the first one before, but it's been quite a while. I was using Garnier for a short while, then switched to VO5 because so many people raved about it on the forums and because it was on sale where I do all of my grocery shopping. I may ultimately end up switching back to Garnier.

I had seen the first commercial but not the second one. Really beautiful hair... but like with all commercials and ads, makes me wonder how much they enhanced it.

I've been drooling over the first one for ages now.

I. Want. That. Hair.

Too bad mine'll never look like that without flatironing first.

Wish there were any truth to the first one... Unfortunately, I think her hair even keeps changing lengths through the commercial. Starts a bit above classic, and I think when it's tied to the rail, it's significantly longer than her arms!

I've seen this on commercials before and then youtube. I had to pause where the girl on garnier long & strong commercial! I had to flip it back and forth! It does seem longer when she tried pulling her hair out when it was tied! When she was running before that, her hair wasn't even long, it was right at classic length! Does it seem odd? I don't know if it is a wig or not just by identifying the hair!:confused::)

My friends have a joke about the first one. We always say, "I'm gonna tie this b*tches hair in a knot!" in a growly voice whenever it comes on.

That second one is kind of racy! You see how he runs his hands down her hair to where her backside is...

I LOVE that model's long, thick blond hair and always think of Igor when I see that ad.

Do we know if that model's hair was real? Because I'm pretty sure the shot where it's tied, the hair is not real. It looked a bit too shiny to me, but I believe the model does have long, long thick hair. :D

Ok, those vids are both beautiful, dream hair! However, is there any ingredients in this Garnier Fructis conditioner that would actually yield these results. For example, the commercial claims we would see up to 80% less breakage. What magical ingredients would help the product achieve that? I am very curious to know as if there was such an ingredient I'd look for it in ALL my products!

The Indian one was great. I remember seeing the first one on TV some time back.

Ooooo... I might be tempted to switch products but I can't use Garnier. The one and only time I tried I ended up with the mother of all headaches for three days. :( Just not willing to chance it again.

Hey all,

Small update on these vids: no, the hair is totally NOT real for either of them. No, you don't have to consider switching for Fructis haircare stuff - even by simple logic, you can guess the actresses weren't strictly using Ganier products for the last 7 years :D The product didn't even exist when a now 3 or 4 foot hair started out from the scalp...

My adoration mostly went for the Indian ad, being the dark hair fan i am. The actress in the ad is Diana Penty, and normally she looks like this: http://www.francismathew.com/Diana%20Penty2.jpg, and http://www.francismathew.com/Diana%20Penty4.jpg
Beautiful, isn't she? :) and sports APL to BSL hair, when it comes to reality.

No, i absolutely have to conclude that haircare product ads are not the least good sources for inspiration. They just practically never advertise their stuff on real hair. Maybe - 2 % of the time?

Garnier totally destroyed my hair and scalp a few years back :( I'm still not sure why though.

I hate Garnier. When I used it I felt like I couldn't get it out of my hair. Maybe I should have diluted it. I just don't use it at all. Tried it once - done.

I used Garnier length & strength for a little while. It didn't really do it for me, though. My favorite will always be Aussie Moist before they changed the ingredients a few years ago and ruined it :( At least the 3MM still works, but I've gone coneless!

I never saw either commercial, but the hair is beautiful! I agree, the one from India is a bit racy at the end! And I always thought Indians were conservative. It's shame they didn't have the actors wear more traditional clothes. I find them to be very beautiful and colorful. Of course, they were targeting the youthful, hip crowd that follows western fashion.

I have seen all the ads given in this thread, i think that Sunsilk ad is totally gross. Most of the hairstylist dont advice to use Sunsilk as they use chemicals in their shampoos, Garnier is however a good brand.

I started using Fructis Long and Strong as a last resort about 4 years ago when my hair was very short and still breaking off an inch at a time. I thought I was going to end up bald with my hair breaking off so fast. Then using Fructis L&S, for the first time in years, my hair was able to grow, plus it looked a lot thicker - I used to have a part down the back of my head because of my fine hair, but the Fructis cured that! I knew it was working when my hair got to shoulder length in just a few months.

Now it's called Length and Strength. I no longer use it exclusively since I found shampoo bars, but I still use it sometimes.

I believe the disclaimer is (as it usually is with these claims) 80% less breakage (than with basic shampoo alone).

Of course most people get less breakage with conditioner...

I remember it, it's a good one. The shampoo and condish are crap though. Totally dried my hair out ;S

These commercials, while not picturing the actresses' real hair, are very pretty! They're certainly inspiring to me, anyway :) I've used Garnier in the past with no ill effects, but it also wasn't the best shampoo and conditioner I've ever used.

I have to say, I do appreciate a mainstream shampoo/conditioner portraying long hair as cool and hip - one can hope that it makes everyone who says that "long hair ages you" shut up!

I used to use Fructis Long&Strong several years ago. It was really great. The only problem for me was that I think it weighed my hair down a little because my hair is fine.

I used to use Garnier Fructise Long & Strong! They changed the name to Length & Strength later... I feel it was because "Long & Strong" comes off as terribly suggestive, lol. :laugh:

I switched over to Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose though.

Well then I guess I'm gonna be in for it down the road because the sunsilk pink bottle conditioner for thirsty ends is my conditioner of choice!
