I've used this shampoo (used in tandem with the conditioner) for the past year. I've only had to repurchase the shampoo twice and the conditioner once in that time (I have the huge 32 oz. bottles). I've been growing my hair out for the past few years and was developing a split end problem when I bought this stuff. It did seem to work immediately on many of my split ends, and seems to have helped curb new splits. But as other reviewers have said, it does seem to leave the hair a bit lusterless, and also somewhat stiff and tacky -- which itself is a problem often associated with causing split ends.
Quite frankly, until today I hadn't even considered trying another shampoo/conditioner for this problem, because I've been using some great treatments post shower to detangle and smooth my hair (TRESseme Keratin Smooth Keratin Smoothing Infusion--or something like that; and Dove Nourishing Oil Detangler -- I've just written reviews for both). Additionally, to prevent stripped hair, I've recently started an every other day shampooing regimen and use dry shampoo on the off days. If all continues to go well, I may stop using this shampoo and favor of something more moisturizing on the shampoo days.
I love Tresemme a lot and none of their products ever disappoint me... but this one was a let down. The formula was just terrible. The shampoo left behind residue and the conditioner felt like glue in the shower and once the hair was dry it felt stiff and straw-like. I also used the leave in spray stuff with it and it was just as bad. If you love the smell, try their Keratin Smooth line. It smells the same and works a lot nicer.
Got free bottles of both shampoo & conditioner to trial. My hair has become horrid. Would not recommend. continued >>
I received this as a sample w/ the Conditioner.
They claim itís best used together (of course) so I did. They also claim that results will appear after three uses, so I am reviewing this after the third use. From the sample bottles, I am not sure if their claims are to strengthen the hair to prevent future split-ends, or to actually get rid of and fix current split ends, or all of the above.
Status of hair before use: Havenít had a haircut for at least 7 months (I know, terrible, but had many reasons). Finally got an appointment at the end of the month, but I needed to do something about the split ends that have developed on my long, straight, now dry hair. Otherwise, I would have to cut my hair shorter than I really want to.
Results? Soft hair, but not super shiny or silky. And where are those split ends? I donít know how the shampoo/conditioner could possible ďget ridĒ of them entirely, but they are less noticeable now. I can still see them if I look hard enough. At least I am able to run my fingers through it without any knots. Seems like itís moisturizing enough to last me another month.
Iíve recently used Redkenís All-Soft Softening Shampoo, which I love, but donít love the pricetag that comes with it. I only use the Shampoo on special occasions (read: ďwhen I am going out, but running late and canít blowdry hairĒ) Though this one didnít give me that ďOMGĒ moment after one use like Redkenís, itís possible I would repurchase at the drugstore price and use it daily. It also smells better than Redken. Thereís still many more drugstore brands to try thoughÖ
It smells great and it does what it says.
I had a lot of split ends before using this and I mean.. A LOT!
After maybe three uses I noticed most of my split ends weren't split anymore! It looked like they were bonding back together. It's amazing really.
This stuff was awful! I used this right before getting my hair trimmed a couple of months back. It's hard to explain, but this stuff coated my hair with a weird film and the conditioner left it.. STICKY! My hair felt like sticky plastic. I don't know how to explain it. This shampoo and conditioner combo was just weird people! WEIRD! I did not like at all. Terrible. Do not recommend.
This shampoo was quite expensive (compared to the other shampoos on the shelf) but it was totally worth it because it helped to hide my split ends and made my hair really shiny! It also smells really nice and I noticed results after the second wash. There is a matching conditioner, but I didn't like that as much as the shampoo so I just used ordinary conditioner but I still got results.
Dislike everything from this line except the clear serum. All the products were like Elmer's glue in my opinion and I threw them all away. It seemed like it could never be rinsed out. Do not like sticky gummy junk in my hair! Oh well. Sorry tresseme but this one was not cool.
I was excited about using this stuff after reading so many good things about it. Normally any shampoo will work in my hair, which is stick straight and really long. I hated the shampoo and conditioner. It left so much residue and made my hair greasy and it was literally SO unmanageable that I couldn't do anything with it. It took me like 10 minutes just to get it in a bun, and it still looked disgusting. It took away any shine that I normally have and made it frizzy and just gross. The residue stayed in my hair for nearly a week and all I could do was wear it in a bun. I do NOT recommend this to anyone. I have never hated a hair product this much before.
This Product was definitely not the best boot it was still good.
