    Gha, I keep reading about macadamia one - I assume it's different from the 'coconut & macadamia' one? Also we still don't have the goji berry, and I've not seen the aloe vera in person, only online. However it is in the TV advert, whereas the goji and macadamia ones are not.

    Not that I need any more conditioner to try - along with 3-5yrs' worth of other conditioner I have a papaya one of these, plus to use up this first pot is going to take a lot of washes anyway

    I tired the banana last night and gods, this is the best thing ever! I'm excited to see how long it lasts on my hair, I find that often the detangling properties wear off during the week.

    Also, I remember using the L'Oreal Elvital (Elvive in US?) masks as a teenager (so 10-ish years ago) and they're still everywhere, so I'm hoping the Hairfood is going to go mainstream here (ie in the grocery stores, drugstore etc.) and last for a good few years! At the moment they're only in that odd store that specialises in stuff that is not quite on the market here

    Update: My ends went crunchy after a couple of days with the Banana mask. They're quite porous and dry. Do anyone think any of the other masks would work better? IMy local store has, aside from the Banana, also the Papaya, Aloe, and Macadamia. Do you think any of the last three would work better for me?

    Also, I wonder why the Hair Food range is "Garnier Fructis" in a lot of Europe and the US, but "Garnier Ultimate Blends" in the UK? Seems like they don't have Fructis at all in the UK

    I am unsure whether or not they have the "general" Fructis line in the UK or not. Maybe MusicalSpoons can chime in on that one.

    Do you always wear your hair down? You can apply it to dry hair, or otherwise mist your ends a bit and apply a tiny bit to them. May want to try that?

    Heh, good point! We used to have Fructis 10+ years ago, and in fact I have one conditioner I picked up a couple of years ago from a cheapie shop that often sells end-of-line or products otherwise not generally available. Back when it was widely available I remember not liking the shampoo, but the ingredients looked fine in the conditioner and I knew I really liked the smell.

    When the Ultimate Blends line was introduced over here, their marketing campaign was that they'd formulated everything to account for the British climate!

    Perhaps try one without shea butter, Siv. I know my hair isn't the biggest fan of shea butter and the banana one is the only hair food with it.

    Nah, it's up almost always. And that's a great idea! I usually do aloe gel + argan + silicone serum on my ends between washes (but only ever after 4-5 days, not 2 like this time). Adding some of the hair food makes sense! I'm going to bed after this so I'll just add some, rebun, and see how it looks tomorrow!

    Ooo that's a good point, I was thinking my hair felt a bit waxy but put it down to my recent foray into cassia...

    I'm interested in trying the banana mask but I have a concern. It says it's from "strengthening" and while I don't see any proteins listed in the ingredients, the fact it says it's a strengthening mask leaves me worried that my hair won't like it. My hair is protein-sensitive and I'd rather not trigger a protein overload. Do any other protein-sensitive folx use the banana mask?
