#Natural Hair: Tresemme Keratin Smooth - Revisted

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

A while ago I bought Tresemme's Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner. I was pretty excited about these products due to the Brazillian blow dries that have been making waves recently (keratin is the main ingredient in these) and was all ready to invest in the keratin hair mask and serum if I got these desired results. I was looking for healthy feeling hair, with smoother more defined curls after I'd set it.

I said back then that I'd report back after a few tries, to tell you how it shaped up - so here goes.

After a few weekly washes, I found that the shampoo was completely stripping my hair and the conditioner was making no efforts at giving me back what my hair was missing. My hair just felt really dry after a wash, and that just no good!

Detangling also became more of a chore. It was taking longer and more effort causing my hair to shed more. After a few weeks I gave up and pushed the products to the back of the shelve. I may come back to the shampoo if I ever feel like my hair is overloaded with product, and could do with being stripped of the build up, but this defiantly isn't a product that I can use on a weekly basis.

I have read about some people using Tresemme's conditioners as a leave in conditioners when mixed with a little olive or coconut oil, so I may try this as some point. Need to get my monies worth some how!

  1. I've always avoided tresemme but recently used the conditioner for detangling and found it really slippery and good so you could try that? Even though it seems to have made detangling a chore :(
