Tresemme Keratin Smooth – Shampoo & Conditioner Review
Remember my skin and hair care haul post? A lot of you asked me to post reviews for the new Tresemme Keratin Smooth range that I bought – so here I am with the review 😀
Price: $6 for each I think
Quantity: 739 ml for each (weird number isn’t it?)
Packaging: The shampoo and the conditioner come in sturdy plastic bottles with flip top caps that shut very firmly. The shampoo comes in a red bottle while the conditioner comes in a white one that makes it very easy to differentiate between the two. I love the bright red of the shampoo bottle! But they are certainly not travel-friendly and not meant to be due to the quantity.
Now, let’s come to the review for each of these. The shampoo first…
Directions for use:
The shampoo is white, creamy, and very easy to apply. Its neither too thick nor runny and lathers easily. I am completely in love with the feminine salon-like fragrance, which is quite strong. It stays on my hair for 2-3 days easily and I can’t stop smelling my hair. It washes off very easily and gives me squeaky-clean hair. However, if you have oiled your hair, one wash with this won’t be enough to get rid of the oil, you will need 2 washes.
This shampoo is one of the best shampoos that I have used from Tresemme – and believe you me, I have used almost all their shampoos! This is actually one of THE BEST shampoos that I have used till date! It literally gives me the feeling of virgin hair after a wash and makes my hair incredibly smooth, shiny, and manageable.
Although I don’t get a lot of frizziness, whatever little I have is completely taken care of by this beauty! I have actually used this without a conditioner a few times and it did not make my hair a bird’s nest 😀
The effect stays on for about 2days – however, the only con is, because I have thin hair, after 2 days it weighs down my hair slightly and they start looking flat. If you have thin hair that is dry like mine, you will need to use it every 2 days or so. But I can completely overlook that because of how my hair loves this shampoo for those 2 days! It’s also very easy to style my hair when I use this shampoo.
However, stay away from this if you have thin, fine hair that gets oily quickly.
Directions for use:
The conditioner is thick and creamy and smells as heavenly as the shampoo. I think it also enhances the intensity and longevity of the shampoo’s fragrance. This is also very easy to spread on the hair and you need to be careful and use this sparingly, otherwise it will weigh your hair down completely. Just a coin-sized amount is enough to cover my hair (it’s a little above my waist.) It needs some work to wash off and even after repeated rinsing I somehow feel some of it is left in my hair ☹
However, when used with the shampoo – I think it weighs down my hair a bit because of the keratin overdose! So, I usually use this conditioner with a volumizing shampoo – and the shampoo with a volumizing conditioner. When used together it makes hair incredibly smooth, no doubt about that, but it’s a little unforgiving on thin hair like mine.
This works very well when used with a volumizing shampoo and provides just the right amount of moisture – makes hair really easy to style and when I use the shampoo and conditioner together I don’t need to use a serum – its THAT moisturizing!
Overall, a fantastic conditioner I would say. For people with dry, frizzy hair – please pick this up even if you don’t pick the shampoo!
IMBB Rating: 10/5 for both
No matter what kind of hair you have, I think you must give these two a shot – you will definitely find a way to make them work as they are amazing at smoothening the hair and providing moisture. It’s a must have in my opinion – highly recommended!
Hope you guys liked my review.
