Tresemme has been around for ages, and is a trusted drugstore brand. It’s not expensive, but is also gentle on hair, and I know many women who swear by their products. So I was keen to try their latest offering, 7 Day Keratin Smooth. It joins the popular trend of using protein in hair products to help smooth our hair. My favourite keratin hair line is Liquid Keratin, but it is a salon line, and is more expensive than the Tresemme.
I used the Trememme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner, and must say they were lovely. The shampoo lathered gently, and rinsed out beautifully, leaving my hair smooth and not tangled. I added the Keratin Smooth Conditioner, and left it on for around 4-5 minutes. Again, it rinsed out easily and left my hair silky and easy to comb. The products have a gentle and somewhat generic fruity scent that does not linger in the hair, and does not offend.
I added the Keratin Smooth Heat Activated Treatment to my damp hair and let it air dry for around 30 minutes. Then, I used the Conair Tresemme Keratin Smooth hair dryer and medium/small round brush to blow out my hair. Not pin straight, as I am not fan of that look, and find it looks unnatural on me. Using the brush I added a slight flip at the ends of my hair. Then, I finished it with a few drops of Live Clean Exotic Oils Keratin Oil with plant-based silicone alternatives.
Verdict? I like the Tresemme 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection, and as a drugstore option I’d say you can’t go wrong with this line! All products are under $10 CAN. My only concern would be the silicones. Time will tell if they build up, or if one would have to regularly clarify the hair. Other than that, I’d say if you are looking for an affordable solution to fight frizz, try the Tresemme!
