Tresemme Keratin Smooth: 7 Day Heat Activated Treatment Review ♥


As a woman, there's nothing better than having a good hair day. Waking up in the morning and having your hair actually going the way you want it to and not needing any straighteners or products is amazing. The best way I figured I'd try to get these good hair days was to treat my hair every once in a while with a nice hair mask or condition and for the most part, it's worked but there are still some days where my hair will just not agree with me and I end up shoving it up in a ponytail or a bun.  

A few weeks ago I saw an advertisement on the tv for Tresemme's new hair product which advertises as giving you sleek and smooth hair which apparently lasts for 7 days or 4 washes. Now instantly I was intrigued because if a product could really last that long, that would mean all bad hair days would be gone forever and who really would say no to that?!

The first chance I got, I popped into my local Tesco store and luckily for me all Tresemme products were half price so instead of paying £6.99 for it, I only paid £3.99! woo!

This isn't really a great picture to show my hair after using it but let's just say that this is a great improvement to what I normally wake up with!

For the treatment to work at it's best you can prep your hair with the 7 day Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner but I opted to use my usual products as I think they work great for my hair. After getting out of the shower you can apply 8-10 pumps of the products and comb on to the mid-lengths and ends. Since my ends are blonde, I applied more of the product on the tips since that was the area that needed the most attention. Once all your product is applied, blow dry in your usual style. 

Now this is where it gets all "sciencey". To actually make the product work, you need to straighten your hair which activates the Thermal Technology. I sectioned my hair into thin layers starting from the bottom and working my way up to the top. It says on the box that you should go over each section 3-5 times with your straighteners so to make sure that every strand is covered and then you're done!

The first time I tried it, I was in love! I was really impressed with how well it had worked and what a big difference it had made to my hair. It looked shinier and softer and was a lot more manageable but when it came to the next time I washed it, I could already see that it was fading A LOT! My hair was already starting to look more dry and straw-like and there was no way in this world would this product last 4 washes! Normally I wash my hair everyday, and I know this is bad etc etc but I suffer with greasy hair and if I try and leave it longer than two days, it's just disgusting. No matter how much dry shampoo I apply, it makes no difference! So in saying all that, I don't think this product would last me one week at all which is disappointing because it was such a great product on day one!

All in all, I did like this product and although for me it didn't live up to it's 7 day/4 washes hype, I still enjoyed it and I would definitely buy it again. 

You can pick yourself one up from Boots, Superdrug and most other big retail shops.
