I was lucky enough to be blessed with thick, straight hair—the ideal wash-and-wear hair type—which is great because that’s how I roll. But even wash-and-wear girls need help in the form of good products. My hair tends to dry out easily, so I look for moisturizing, smoothing formulas that tame frizz and restore healthy shine; if they don’t cost a small fortune, even better.
Enter TRESemmé®. Their calling card has always been “professional, affordable,” and their new TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™ collection is the latest in a long line of salon-grade products at drugstore prices. TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™ promises smooth, easy-to-style hair thanks to a lower-sulfate formula that moisturizes better and infuses hair with keratin (a key protein in healthy hair and nails). In other words, it sounds tailor-made for my hair concerns. So how does the collection stack up?
Based on three weeks of testing, TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™ definitely lives up to TRESemmé®’s reputation for delivering results. The Keratin Infusing Shampoo ($5.99 for 700 mL) produces rich suds that cleanse gently from root to tip without stripping hair of moisture. The Keratin Infusing Conditioner ($5.99 for 700 mL) is surprisingly rich with a texture akin to face cream; it coats every strand while detangling.
With TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™, my hair feels smooth, healthy and blow-dry ready straight out of the shower. So it stands to reason that the final product in this 3-step regimen, the Heat Protection Shine Spray ($5.99 for 236 mL), isn’t a heavy moisturizer but a lightweight protectant that promotes shine. (Tip: When spraying, hold it away from you at arm’s length to get more even product distribution.) A quick comb-through and blow-dry later, I have groomed-looking locks sans the “I just washed my hair” dryness and frizzies.
So, would I purchase the TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™ line on my own? Yes! The products are well-priced and effective. But I might not have to do it anytime soon because at a whopping 700 mL per shampoo/conditioner bottle, it’s going to be a while before I run out.
Rule Your Hair! TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth™ is a new lower sulphate system that nourishes hair and infuses keratin from root to tip. The result? An instantly smoother style and frizz control that lasts for up to 48 hours. Now you can have frizz-free salon smoothness everyday, without the salon price.
