TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner Review, Swatches: Hey guys, today we are talking shampoo and conditioner. Since I often use shampoos and conditioners from the same range; instead of doing separate reviews, I though talking about them would be more useful. Let me know what you think about this. Should I do them together or in different posts.

In Detail TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner Review, Swatches and My Experience

Packaging

The shampoo comes in this red colour plastic bottle with a flip open top. Its available in different sizes which is great because you can choose the one that suits you. Unlike the shampoo, the conditioner comes in a white colour bottle with a flip top. Both the shampoo and the conditioner bottles are pretty standard as far as Tresemme packaging in concerned. Except for some colour differences, the packaging of tresemme products remains the same across the board. I think the packaging is nice. Because we have different size options, its very convenient for us as consumers.

TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo Review

The shampoo is white in colour. It smells nice, kind of like the other tresemme shampoos. I like the consistency its just nice to work the shampoo through the hair. As far as the visual and olfactory aspects are concerned, nothing to complain about here.

The shampoo lathers quite nicely in my hair. I have used it on oiled as well as on unoiled hair. On oiled hair, this is able to remove all the oils and gunk in my hair in two washes. Now, normally a shampoo with sulphates is pretty much able to cleanse off the oils in a single wash. But because this shampoo has lesser quantity of sulphates in it, it takes me 2 washes to completely remove the oils in the hair. On unoiled hair, I just need to use it once.

Tresemme keratin smooth shampoo manages to cleanse my hair very nicely. Specially love how it does not cause any additional tangling in my hair. Though I have to admit that without pre-oiling, this shampoo does make my hair feel a little bit dry. Make sure to use the conditioner after the shampoo for sure. As far as the smoothening aspect is concerned, talking about the shampoo alone, well I am kind of under impressed. It feels like an average shampoo when used alone without the conditioner. I like it because it cleanses my hair very well. Also the fact that it does not cause extra tangles and frizz in my hair.

After I wash off the shampoo, I take a fairly good amount of conditioner on my palms and apply it on the lengths of my hair. Always from the length around my ear till the ends. Never apply conditioner on the scalp because I feel like I have an oily scalp and conditioner on my scalp kind of makes things more oily and messy. On the other hand, my dry hair can really use all the moisture and hydration which conditioner imparts.

The consistency of the conditioner is moderate. Texture is creamy. It is quite easy to apply it on the hair. I leave it on for around 5 to 7 minutes. Then wash off with normal temperature water. After washing off the conditioner completely, I let my hair air dry.

Tresemme keratin smooth conditioner makes my hair feel quite soft and smooth. Its not a super remarkable effect but definitely better than the average. In fact, I’d say that I like the conditioner more than I like the shampoo. It reduces tangles in my hair to an extent and controls frizziness just a little bit. The lovely smell does linger around for a while say max an hour or so.

Overall Verdict

Overall I’d say I am happy with the shampoo and conditioner duo specially at this price. However, I wouldn’t choose to use the shampoo alone. It works the best when paired with the matching conditioner. The duo makes my hair feel quite nice. Less frizz and my hair look slightly more smooth and healthy. I know the conditioner does contain a fair amount of silicones in it, but still it does a pretty job for me. At this price range, this duo is definitely worth a shot.
