TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner Review: Hey guys, so I just talked about the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo in my previous post and now I am going to share my experience with its conditioner. If you haven’t read my review for the shampoo, let me cut it short for you and tell you that I did not like it. However the conditioner was not so bad after all. Again, Tresemme has a conditioner under the same name in USA and UK markets but the ingredients in those are Green Tea and Ginger. However the conditioner available in India has Neem and Ginseng. So this product although has the same name, is basically different from country to country. I am going to talk about the one which is available here in India.

In Detail TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner Review and My Experience
The conditioner comes in an opaque white bottle. The bottle can be squeezed with moderate pressure. It says on the bottle that the conditioner contains no dyes and no parabens. Now this particular conditioner has Neem and Ginseng in it. I am sure all of you know what Neem also known as Azadirachcta is. Its basically a tree with immense anti bacterial and anti septic properties.
Ginseng is also known as “Ashwagandha” in hindi. It has more anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties. Most importantly, in the present context, Ginseng is known to promote hair growth. It is said to stimulate hair follicles.
All that being said, please keep in mind that Neem and Ginseng are not the only 2 ingredient this product contains. It contains silicones, alcohol and other preservatives as well. Hence, I would never advise anyone to put a conditioner onto your scalp.
The conditioner smells like normal Tresemme conditioners. I really loved the smell of Tresemme Nourish and Replenish conditioner though, it was unique and amazing. Coming back to this one, it smells nice but not something very special. The consistency is creamy and it is very easy to spread into the hair while applying.
How I Use it
After washing my hair, while it is still wet, I take 2 coin size amount of this conditioner and work it through my hair lengths and ends. My hair is 4 inches below my navel hence, I need that much product. If your hair is longer or shorter, you may adjust the quantity accordingly. I never apply conditioners near my hair roots or scalp. Then, I gently spread it along my hair lengths to make sure I cover all the hair strands. I keep it in my hair for around 5 minutes and then wash it off with normal water. I always take my time washing off a conditioner from my hair because I do not like to have any traces of conditioner left behind.
I find this conditioner working fine for me. Like meh! nothing out of the box. This hydrates my hair moderately. I mean, because the detox and restore shampoo was drying, I wanted this conditioner to be ultra hydrating. However it isn’t. It just hydrates normally what other normal conditioners would do. This does reduce roughness and keeps frizz controlled for a few hours. Doesn’t really help with my hair tangles much.
I have a normal scalp with normal to dry hair. My hair is wavy with some damage near the ends from hot tools. Personally, I did not find this conditioner doing anything special for my hair. It works like an average conditioner. I absolutely would never use the detox and replenish shampoo however I do not mind finishing off the conditioner. Overall, I wouldn’t say I am happy about this conditioner. Neither am I disappointed. I do not recommend this for dry hair types. This would be good for ladies with normal or normal to slightly oily hair.

PROs of TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner

CONs of TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner
1. Does not work for my hair ends. My hair ends need something really hydrating.
2. Does not make my hair smooth.
3. This doesn’t ease down my tangles.
4. Has silicones, alcohol and a lot more chemical ingredients.
5. Won’t work for beauties with very dry hair.
1. If you have dry hair and you still decide to use this conditioner, make sure to apply a leave in conditioner in your hair.
2. Always purchase the smaller size before getting the bigger size of the conditioner.
3. Never apply a conditioner near hair roots or scalp. I know I keep repeating this in every hair product review but I cannot stress enough how important this is. I get numerous patients coming to me with hair fall and this is one of the advises I can give you to reduce hair fall.
4. Never comb wet hair.
5. I do not prefer combing hair while a conditioner is on. I just run my fingers through to distribute the product as evenly as possible. However, if your hair is really strong, you may use a comb but make sure its a very wide toothed comb.
