TRESemme Keratin Smooth

What we say:
I absolutely love the new TRESemme Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner.  It has a pleasant, long lasting fragrance and it leaves my hair feeling soft and frizz free all day. It’s easy to open and close top makes it perfect for use in the shower.  Its packaging is attractive and appealing.  I love the range of sizes in bottles but have chosen to buy the larger 750ml bottles.  I feel more confident knowing my hair is smooth and frizz free for the entire day but it does seem to leave ‘build up’ on my hair and my hair seems a little flat by the end of the day. I have had many comments on how much better my hair looks.  This product works well on my hair as long as I use it daily.  I would definitely recommend it as long as it is used for dry, unmanageable, frizzy hair as my own.

I liked that the shampoo bottle is red and the conditioner’s bottle is white. That way you don’t have to read which is which and risk getting shampoo in your eye with products when they’re identical. The shampoo has a nice; refreshing fragrance although I wish it was a bit stronger though. I like that just-washed smell. The shampoo consists of a clear, thin liquid whilst the conditioner is a white and has a thicker consistency. The bottle promises to control frizz for up to 48 hours, and I felt the effects of that control from the moment I rinsed it off. Usually my hair is tame as long as it’s wet and it expands as soon as it begins to dry. This shampoo and conditioner managed to command my hair even as the dampness wore off and left it smooth to the touch. I liked that it didn’t make my hair feel greasy, as is the side effect of other products that claim to control frizz. I’d definitely buy this!

The TRESemme Keratin Smooth shampoo & conditioner smells good and feels smooth and light. It is packaged in a convenient screw on lid bottle and comes in the travel and larger sizes. Personally I like the travel size :) 
I have used the product twice now and I like how it suds up and leaves a clean feeling after washing. I think that the shampoo works best when paired with the conditioner to leave the silky feel. 

Many people have commented on how silky my hair is even after just 2 washes.
 The purpose of the product is to tame frizzy “out of control” hair and leave a silky smooth finish and it definitely does just that. I recommend this product out of many of the shampoos I have tried, I think TRESemme always keeps their promise of beautiful hair and I would most certainly purchase it in future.

I had heard so many mixed reviews on the TRESemme Keratin smooth shampoo and conditioner, but until I had tried it myself, I had no idea how fantastic it was. I love the colour of the bottles; the red shampoo bottle catches your eye immediately. It smells fresh and clean and it foams very easily. The conditioner makes your hair automatically softer. The next morning my hair was silky smooth; it was so soft that I could not put bobby pins in my hair, because they just fell out. My hair smelt so nice and it looked healthier. My split ends and frizz seemed to be improving, with every wash, as if they were disappearing. The bottle says it lasts for 48 hours, and it does. After 48 hours I had to wash my hair again, but you could probably get away with another day. I have already recommended it to all my friends and I will be buying it from now on. Gone are the days of having frizzy hair

I use Tresemme’s Blonde range as my regular hair cleaning and moisturising products, and these don’t disappoint and offer superior results for my fine hair. The packaging was so “Salon Quality”, with its red and gold, it makes the user feel like royalty (or like you are about to have a spa treat!). The product inside has a silky feel and a pleasant “fruit meets floral” smell. The shampoo cleaned my hair effectively, with the smallest amount of product used (who cannot love that? Economical!). Then the conditioner smoothed into my hair. It had a thick, clinging action to my hair, which is great. Rinse and go… I mean go go go the volume, which I absolutely loved, considering the long, fine, dead straight and flat hair I live with. No frizz but lots of volume! The packaging promises smooth, frizz free hair for up to 48hours; a promise I was definitely going to test!

I work as principal at a nursery school and am a mother to a toddler. This means that I am forever in the wind, sun, rain, having my hair pulled on, tugged and played with. This was to be my military type test…and the product passed with distinction! Not a frizz and my hair held its style for longer. The children, parents and my staff commented on how shiny and “in place” my hair was. They also liked the smell, especially the children “hmmmm you smell yummy!”.

After longer use I noticed that my ends seemed smoother, with no split ends. Whilst I am still I diehard fan of my Tresemme colour protect Blonde products, this product is a close second!

The TRESemme Keratin Smooth range is definitely worth trying. It promises to control frizz for up to 48 hours in a two-step manner: the shampoo gently cleanses and restores while the conditioner promises to give you salon smoothness and manageability. And boy does it! The shampoo is sort of like a colourless gel and feels smooth and silky.  It lathers really well leaving the hair coated with foam but not leaving it dry. It smells really great: that ‘signature’ TRESemme smell but fruitier. The conditioner is a thick and fluffy white cream that left my hair feeling amazingly soft. The smell is less pungent than that of the shampoo. The products came in two travel-sized bottles. Each 100ml bottle fit neatly into the palm of my hand. I was impressed to find there was still a lot left over even after a thorough wash. The look and design of the bottle is simple – as it should be – since all innovation should really be focused on what’s inside the bottle. The shampoo and conditioner gets big thumbs up from me and would definitely recommend it! I needed a new shampoo and conditioner suited to my natural hair that won’t dry it out and I think I found it!

I was so excited when I received my samples in the post – I have always enjoyed TRESemme & I was unhappy with the shampoo & conditioner I am using. I always rely on the smell of a product as this can put me off a product quickly – but not with TRESemme.  It smells AMAZING! People at work have been walking past me & commenting on how lovely it smells.  The smell is not overpowering but it does have a lovely, clean, gentle smell that I really like. The shampoo foams up very nicely & leaves my hair feeling clean, & nice & soft after the conditioner. The sample sizes are nice & small – the original size is a little big for my liking (especially when in the shower!).  I battle to open it, pour the product onto my hand & close the lid without spilling it all over the shower floor! I usually wash my hair every 2 days but I am finding my hair stays cleaner for a bit longer now without getting greasy & stringy. I think this would work for all types of hair – I have long straight hair & my husband short & very curly, & he has been taking full advantage of it at home as well! Definitely worth trying – I love it & will be buying it next month.

I received my Tresemme Shampoo and conditioner recently and I must say, WHAT A SUPRISE! Congratulations on stepping away from the normal black and white packaging! I’m very impressed with the new red and white coloured bottles! Secondly, the smell of the Keratin enriched shampoo and conditioner was so refreshing! I can still smell my hair. This shampoo and conditioner is the first shampoo and conditioner I’ve tried that actually takes all the oiliness out of my hair! VERY IMPRESSED! From now on I will be using these products and sticking to them! THANK YOU BEAUTY SOUTH AFRICA AND TRESEMME!

TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner has to be the best shampoo I have used in a long time. What I like about the shampoo itself was the way it made my hair feel while washing it, usually with other leading brands it leaves hair feeling all hard and brittle. Tresemme keratin made my curly frizzy hair easy to manage while styling and after. Normally I would wash my hair and after day 2 it would start getting all messy and oily, this shampoo somehow kept my hair clean for at least 4 days, controlled frizz and my hair still had that great smell J. When washing my hair I also tend to use a bit more shampoo than most but what I noticed about this product was that I would use a lesser amount and would end up with even better results than using normal /other shampoos. The fragrance is great and not that overpowering; it definitely is a keeper on my list. Awesome product, I have already gone to purchase my new bottles..

I am pleased to let you know that I have had an amazing 3 week experience with the new TRESemme Keratin Smooth shampoo & conditioner. My tresses are loving the soft, silky smooth feel after washing & blow drying my hair. I generally have thin, dull, flat & oily hair just after 1 day of washing which has become a thing of the past with Tresemme Keratin Smooth. Thank you for transforming my tresses.
