You might have noticed I don’t get negative very often here on Beautynook. I try talk about things I like and feel positive about usually because that’s how I like to do it. Every so often something crosses your path though and you can’t keep the béal shut. The TRESemmé Keratin Treatment 7 Day Smooth is that for me.
I had high hopes for this product. I picked it up excitedly in Boots, brought it home and washed my hair straight away. It claims to leave you with salon smooth hair with less frizz and more manageability (who wouldn’t want that!).You apply 8-10 pumps on medium length towel dried hair, without putting it on your scalp and comb it through. It has a cream like texture so it’s just like putting conditioner in your hair.
Next, you blow dry your hair until it’s completely dry.Then the instructions say to activate the thermal technology, straighten your hair in small sections, using a hair straightener at its highest setting. You need to repeat the process 3-5 times over each section. I can say honestly I abided by the instructions wholeheartedly.
So when you’re finished drying and straightening your hair of course it’s smooth and straight, you spent a long time straightening it, good stuff! However this stuff is meant to make this look last for up to four washes with minimal styling. When I bought the TRESemmé Keratin Treatment 7 Day Smooth, I bought it because lets face it I wanted less hair frizz but also with also with my blogger hat on. I thought it would be such a cool thing to recommend to people. I had plans on taking pics of my long fabulous locks and saying, you can get this too, but honestly this stuff did nothing for me whatsoever, taking a picture of my hair would be a complete waste of time.
I wash my hair every couple of days, so after a couple of days of putting on the treatment I washed it again. I have naturally straight full hair so I was not expecting anything amazing. I do get frizz at the crown of my head so I really expected this to be at least minimized…nothing.
I gave it to the mammy, made her stick to the regime and watched closely as she abided by all the instructions, left her for a few days, she washed her hair as normal and let it dry as she normally does. She has finer, shorter hair than me with more frizz. Her hair did not look any different, she handed it back to me and said “this stuff is shite”! (apologies for the language) :p
I hate being negative, but I felt it necessary with this product as it claims to do alot.
Have you tried it, or anything similar that actually works? Be sure to share it with everyone, don’t be shy 🙂
Thanks for reading you luscious locked lot!
