TRESemmé treats my hair…
A few weeks back I was invited to the launch of the new range from TRESemmé called Keratin Smooth. Over the past few weeks I have been using the shampoo and conditioner every second day and thought I might share some feedback about the products here…
First a bit about the product:
TRESemmé’s Keratin Smooth range is aimed at helping women to keep frizz under control (something almost half the women surveyed highlighted as a key need) TRESemmé Keratin Smooth is infused with Keratin to transform the hair to be smoother, straighter and easier to style.
Hair is made of up to 90% Keratin, and “Keratin bundles” form the internal structure of each strand and it is also the main protein in your nails and skin which is why Keratin is super effective at strengthening and deeply conditioning hair by helping to replenish lost Keratin (due to excess heat styling & colouring) in hair without damaging it or changing its molecular structure. A lack of Keratin is what leads to stressed, frizzy hair.
The new lower sulphate system shampoo aims to gently cleanse hair of oil and dirt while laying the foundation for the conditioning step which will nourish hair and infuse it with keratin from root to tip resulting in an instantly smoother style.
The conditioner contains silicones and conditioning ingredients and is again infused with Keratin. It is gentle enough for colour treated hair and suitable for use after the salon Keratin treatment.
After using both products in the specified way (3 mins application for EACH product) I found my hair was left feeling smooth, shiny and much manageable than before. My new sleek do had hardly any tangles and was far less frizzy than is the norm for my dry, thick hair! Hooray!
Even though this range is low-sulphate I did unfortunately find that , due to the fact that I suffer from quite a sensitive scalp, the SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulphate) in the shampoo irritated it causing a bit of itching and dryness (although not enough to get me to stop using the product!) it just might mean that this might not be the right option for those who struggle with a similar problem.
I also received the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Masque which is an intensive rescue treatment that can be used once a week on frizz prone hair. Once again this product is infused with keratin and contains deep conditioning ingredients which replenish each strand claiming to control frizz for 48 hours! I found this product really performed well on my dry hair which soaked up the extra moisture and was left looking and feeling fantastic!
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo R78.99 (750ml)
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner R78.99 (750ml)
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Masque R64.99 (300ml)
The sizes of these bottles are huge which means that although these prices seem high you are actually getting loads of salon quality hair care at an affordable price!
