Thank you Influenster for sending me TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner complimentary to try.
I was excited to try this set as my hair can be pretty frizzy since I don’t use a blow dryer often. It’s not good to use a lot of heat on your hair so I usually let it dry naturally. This set has 5 benefits: Anti-Frizz, Perfectly Detangles, Silky Shine, Soft Feel & Tames Fly-Aways.
When I received my box I was floored that I got liter bottles , I was expecting travel size so this was a nice surprise.
This set has a nice smell to it, not over powering or too floral. I have allergies so some scents really bother them. I did notice the next day my hair was really oily and I don’t have that issue with my normal shampoo and conditioner.
Let’s go over the 5 benefits it has:
Anit Frizz- It does work for anti-frizz, I noticed just after a few washes that my hair was less frizzy.
Perfectly Detangles -I would say detangle wise it’s the same as most shampoos, I didn’t really see a difference.
Silky Shine -My hair also had a nice shine to it and felt silky but only for one day then it went greasy.
Soft Feel – My hair was nice and soft for the first day and then went greasy.
Tames Fly-Aways – Since I mostly let my hair naturally dry I could tell it tamed my fly aways.
Overall: It is a nice product but for me I feel my normal professional shampoo & conditioner is better. I don’t wash my hair every day, as it is best to let the natural oils come out and washing every day can dry your hair out.
I won’t be purchasing TRESemme for one big reason; they are NOT cruelty free. They do claim so on their site but if you follow the link to Unilever you find this statement: “Occasionally, when there are no suitable non-animal approaches available, some of the ingredients we use have to be tested; and some governments test our products on animals as part of their regulatory requirements. We are actively working with these governments, other scientists and NGOs, to put in place alternative methods.”
I also wont be buying this due to the fact after one day my hair is really greasy and I don’t want to over wash my hair. Please note I use less of the TRESemme products than I do of my normal shampoo and conditioner. Also I only normally use Salon brand products like Big Sexy (which is what I have been using before I got these bottles).
