Having recently dyed my hair a light honey blonde colour I was worried about how my colour would survive over my summer holidays due to the sun, sea, sand and chlorine from the swimming pools. However, I was very pleased with this product, which I used in conjuction with the matching conditioner as I found both of them together in a multipack in Savers for a very cheap £4. The bottles were very large at 900ml and are only still at the halfway point after 2 months!! They were very good value for money and I would recommend these over the much higher similar products on the market from brands like John Frieda, etc. This helped to prevent my hair colour from going dull and kept it shiny and soft all summer long! I would urge anyway who has blonde hair to buy these products, especially if your hair is not naturally blonde, as we all know that dying your hair takes its toll on it which can lead to it being very damaged and dry, and when you add the summer months into the picture, it can get even worse. So, this product is a life saver, as it doesnt let your colour fade, and keeps your hair very healthy. My long and thick hair was left looking very shiny and full of life! I will definitely buy these products again as they have taken a big weight off my shoulders, as before I dyed my hair I was so worried that my hair would be left damaged, dry and frizzy but this product has made sure that it hasn't!!
When I was younger (a lot younger - somewhere leading up to around my 9th birthday) I had beautifully naturally blonde hair, however as the years past my hair grew darker and darker and is now a boring mousey brown shade that is quite dull and lifeless looking. So when I was around the age of 15 I started to have blonde highlights put in my hair and have continued to do so ever since, with the execption of last year where I turned brunette for a short period before deciding I was definately a blonde girl at heart and had my usual highlights put back in. Unfortunately, the up keep of highlighted blonde hair can be quite costly. My hair is on the longer side and as a result the price of highlights in hairdressers is more expensive and these days costs me around £60 every couple of months to maintain (and thats one of the cheaper hairdressers). In an attempt to keep my hair looking blonder or longer I decided to buy some shampoo designed especially for coloured hair and a friend of mine recommended TRESemme.
***Who are TRESemme?***
I'm sure there are very few people who have not heard of TRESemme as they are forever advertising on TV claiming to be a Salon product at an affordable price (however in my opinion this is questionable at more than £5 a bottle, especially if you are someone that washes your hair everyday and has to buy shampoo quite often). The brand was first established in America in 1947 and originally only sold to salons but is now made readily available to anyone and is available in all the usual places (Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Morrisons etc).
I usually just buy whatever shampoo is on offer at the time so I'm not used to paying a lot for it and at the risk of sounded stingey, I couldn't justify the £5.39 price tag per 900ml bottle at Superdrug and Boots so decided to shop around and found smaller bottles in a multi pack containing the shampoo and conditioner for £3.79 at my local Home Bargins which I thought was fantastic for two 500ml bottles - a real bargin.
The Shampoo comes in a golden coloured bottle with the brand name printed boldly at the top of the bottle, the name of the particular shampoo - Colour Thrive - is printed below this in a slightly less dramatic manner and then below that in increasingly less bold print is a very brief description of the shampoo and on the back of the bottle is the small print with the brands philosophy, information about the shampoo and directions on how to use it. The conditioner bottle is identical to this except instead of the bottle being gold in colour it is cream.
I washed my hair the next morning after purchasing the shampoo. The shampoo and conditioner themselves are quite a thick consistency compared to some other shampoos I have tried, but still runny. I applied it to my hair as directed on the bottle, using a liberal amount and massaging my scalp and roots until creating a lather. I then rinsed my hair thoroughly and applied the conditioner and left on for 2-3 minutes as directed before again rinsing thoroughly. I dried and styled my hair as normal and was very impressed with the results. The shampoo appeared to do exactly what it said on the tin, my hair was bright and shiney and looked as if I had just left the hairdressers, it felt silky soft and managable and generally just looked and felt amazing, it really did brighten then bolnde in my hair. It looked and felt so good that I could actually see why it was priced at what it is, because you are actually getting a truely quality product. I continued to be happy with the shampoo for a good week or so but then I noticed my hair was starting to still feel greasey at the roots, despite just being washed. At first I thought it was my fault, that maybe I hadn't rinsed my hair thoroughly enough and so the next time I used it gave my hair a really good rinse but still my hair felt greasey at the roots. I was so confused, I hadn't changed anything about my general daily routine and couldn't see what could cause my hair to be like this. A few days later I went to the hairdressers to have my hair coloured again and discussed my dilemma with my hairdresser who told me it was the shampoo. Now I cannot remember her exact words but she explained that after several uses there is something in the shampoo that builds up in your hair despite thorough rinsing causing it to feel not so great. I left the hairdressers with my hair feeling fabulous once again, no greasey roots in sight and so decided to buy a different shampoo to try the next time my hair needed washing and sure enough, my hair was ablsolutely fine. After doing some digging online I found that there are actually quite a few people who have also had this problem and TRESemme was actually voted the 4th worst drug store shampoo in America by an American review site.
I was so disappointed when it turned out the the TRESemme shampoo was the cause of my prematurely greasey roots, especially since the initial effects of the shampoo after the first fews uses were so impressive. In my opinion this shampoo would be good for one off uses every now and then rather than regular use, hopefully this way you wouldn't get the build up of whatever it is in the shampoo that causes your hair to go greasey and still have fabulous hair after using it. I have used this shampoo since having problems with it on occasions when I have ran out of shampoo and not had chance to get to the shops and again my hair has turned out beautifully but as soon as it is started to be used regularly the greasey-ness returns. I think it goes without saying that £5.39 for a bottle of shampoo that makes you hair greasey is just not worth it. I wouldn't personally recommend this product to a friend as I would hate for them to waste their money on a product that doesn't do the most basic of things that a shampoo should do and actually clean your hair and remove greasey-ness! The bottle states that the shampoo gives you a 'salon feeling everyday', well quite frankly if I left the hairdressers with my hair feeling like that I would demand a refund!
I don't like to admit but i am not a natural blond and have been colouring and haveing my hair bleached for over 15 years. I do like to try various brands and types of shampoo's. As we in our household all love a bargin. I usually tend to go with whats on offer at the time then if i'm pleased with the shampoo i do stick with it for a while.TRESemme is a shampoo that i have used numerous times and came across the blond type and just had to try.A few of my friends are very good hairdresses and give me a few tips and recommend certain products.The shampoo's now adays are very kind to hair and are not as harsh as they used to be.TRESemme is aworldwide known company and makes products in England that is always nice to know.They pride themselves on being affordable to none professionals but the products are of a salon quality.For salon and tips go toTRESemme.co.uk for lots of stylist secrets.
The shampoo comes in 200ml or 500ml and the packageing is pretty usual for shampoo,s,although the bottle is a kind of matalic gold'y yellow colour .The lid is the kind that you push down at one end and a little opening appears for the shampoo to exit.It is a lovely smelling fragrance that escapes from the bottle asoon as you open the lid ,it's not over powering but does smell a bit like sweeties and lemon -thats most probably the chamomile extract that claims to remove dulling mineral deposits to help give your hair vibrancy and add more shine.
The directions -Squeeze a small amount into to palm of the hand and coat the hair as you would normally(one tip i've been told from a friend is to massage from scalp then work your way down to the ends to prevent the hair cuticles from openeing because they are the cause of split ends.)I love to make silly styles and shapes with my hair when coverd in shampoo (reverting back to my youth!)Another little tip i use is to wash shampoo out in warm water then just before you finished rinse under cold water if you can stand it as this also can add to more shine i usually do that- try it see what you think! I really like to get a good lather going and TRESemme certainly gives you that. The fragrance definately pops under your nose when washing and smells lovely ,fresh,and really does last for 2 days or so depending on wether you stand over a hot cooker all day another tip for blonds is inbetween washes revamp hair with a bit of talc rubbed between palms then run through hair from roots espesally.
The price is affordable at £4.07 from boots for the 500ml with 16advantage points and i found or rather my husband nipped into netto one day and found an limited edition pack with the shampoo and conditioner really buy the shampoo get the conditioner FREE and that was an amazeing £3.97 BARGIN! so he got me two so ive had a good trial with this type and have found that it really is not alot different from all the other brands of blond products there is on the market now but it is not any worse and i would say its up in the top 5
I would recommend this shampoo to other blonds out there if you can get it on offer all the better but i wouldn't shout this type from the roof tops but that just my opinion
I have blonde hair, and to achieve which I go for regular highlights with bleach and colour, so my hair does take a bit of a battering and it is hard to create a shine and a glow the same as it would be with brown hair. For that reason I was looking out for a specialist 'blonde' shampoo and Tresemme seemed to offer this within an affordable price range. You can get a couple of sized containers, and as always it is cheaper to buy in bulk. You can get 400ml for about £4 and 900ml for about £5-£6.
Tresemme shampoo comes in a round, cylindrical container. The lid is one which you have to push one side down for the other side to pop out. You then squeeze out the product you need. The product is creamy and thick. It is easy to apply and feels nice on your hands. It is easy to apply evenly and get good hair coverage. I normally give myself a quick massage and then wash off before applying conditioner. The shampoo didn't smell of anything distinctive, just pretty much standard hairdresser smell, it certainly didn't stand out. It left my hair smelling clean and fresh afterwards though.
The shampoo, once washed off and dried left me with soft hair, in good condition. Unlike some shampoos it wasn't too heavy on my ahir and didn't make hair styling difficult.
It didn't leave my hair dull at all, but it certainly didn't leave it with that extra special sparkly shine I had been hoping for. It certainly hasn't solved the shiney mystery I have been searching for, but it certainly wasn't a bad shampoo either, and for a good price when you buy in bulk.
I read somewhere that your hair gets 'use' to a particular shampoo/conditioner and for this reason you should alternative between brands. I tend to use this Tresemme for 3 months then sunsilk for a month etc...
I have found Tresemme to be the best shampoo for my hair (blonde, thin, greasy). Other shampoos seems to strip hair of any natural oils, whereas all the Tresemme ones I have tried make my hair feel soft and tangle free.
I decided to give the blonde bottle a go (my hair is blonde!), normally I would use the one aimed at 'coloured hair'. Ive noticed that my hair has a nice shine to it from using the blonde shampoo and conditioner. My hair feels great, and I honestly think Tresemme prevents split ends when you have bleached hair.
The rather large bottles dont put me off. In fact I quite like them as you tend to get value for money by buying big.
I have had a hair dresser tell me that tresemme is awful, and another saying that it is the best thing on the supermarket shelves. I guess its all subjective.
If you have tried VO5, pantene, fructus and you hair comes out tangled and dry, or greasy, give Tresemme a go, as this has worked wonders for me.
This product was recently on offer in my local Asda with two huge 900ml bottles for the bargainous price of £5. This was across the entire range of Tresemme shampoos and conditioners which was very good value I thought and as I was running low on my usual shampoo and conditioner I figured I may as well invest in these gargantuan bottles which would be sure to keep me going for a while.
I have tried some of the products from this range before, the standard 'for coloured hair' shampoo and conditioners in particular. I was impressed with the quality but thought they were somewhat overpriced, for me this was therefore a great compromise.
This shampoo is specifically targetted for blonde hair but interestingly it stipulates on the bottle that it is not just intended for highlighted or dyed hair but natural blondes too. The main ingredient to look after your blonde locks is chamomile, well known for its blonde enhancing properties. It also claims to have something called 'ColourThrive Fade Block Technology' - but more of that later.
So, first, a slight downside to bottles this big is that I have tiny hands and when these bottles are wet in the shower they are not only cumbersome and heavy, they are slippy and hard to cling on to. I cannot stretch one hand round the bottle to hold it very easily so its a two hand and concentrating job to get any out of the bottle (same for the matching conditioner).
Anyway, once I have managed to extract some of this shampoo the smell is quite divine. I would go so far as to say that this particular product smells quite similar to the Herbal Essences range in terms of its fruity pungency, definitely more fruity than anything else I have tried from the Tresemme range in any case.
The aroma is not mentioned on the bottle (which focusses on the science and the salon kudos) but it smells of a fantastic combination of mangoes, grapes and a definite, unmistakable splas of watermelon which makes it smell very refreshing and leaves my hair smelling fabulous. I keep finding myself tossing my hair when no one is looking just to catch a whiff - it really is that good.
So, it lathers up very well and feels nice and silky to use, it definitely leaves the hair feeling (and smelling) very clean. I have used this in combination with the matching conditioner so would have to say I can only vouch for their combined effect on my hair.
It is, however, seeming to do the job. I only had my hair highlighted around 3 weeks ago and usually I am at the stage by now where it has lost that freshly coloured shine and shimmer. This time I am convinced it is still looking pretty good, pretty radiant in fact. Its also very soft and managable at the moment which is an added bonus.
The ColourThrive Fade Block Technology then. Well, its hard to fathom what this is, other than industry gabble, to be honest. On the info on the back of the bottle it says that this magic technology works by prolonging 'the life of your colour by locking in and protecting colour depth' but it does not say how.
To be honest, it is currently doing such a good job I can live without learning all the facts behind the magic, Tresemme claim to be salon quality for the home and based on this product I would believe that completely. Personally, I will just buy it in smaller, more managable bottles in future!
This TreSemme Shampoo comes in a much larger bottles then regular shampoo which means that it is usually a little more expensive, however i found it on offer at a supermarket for half price this week and decided to try it instead of my regulars.
I do normally alter my shampoo's each month depending on what is on offer, or what takes my eye on the shelf.
I chose the blonde Colour Thrive as i have blonde hair and hoped it would help to enhance the colour and make it look less dull.
When I opened the bottle I thought it smelt really nice and fresh without being too strong or chemically, the shampoo was quite thick and lathered well in my hair with any a bit of water. It also rinsed out quite easily which is good as i have really long hair and it can take a while to get rid of soap suds!
I then conditioned it with the tresemme Blonde conditioner. i havn't really noticed any difference in the colour of my hair but it is less dull and it does feel really soft.
I have also been able to leave a day or two inbetween washes, and my hair doesnt become oily.
I would definitely recommend this shampoo and whilst on the half price offer it is really good value, but i would probably pay full price for it as well as you get such a large bottle!

I followed it with the tresemme Blonde conditioner and have found that whilst i havn't noticed any difference in the colour of my hair, that it does feel really soft and I also havn't had any problems with it being staticy which my hair can be. I have also been able to leave a day inbetween washes, where as usually i find if i do that it is too greasy so i wash it every day.

I have blonde hair and I thought I would buy this one because I have used Tresemme Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner before which was really good.
It has a flip top lid so it is easy to use. You can buy it in most supermarkets and they do it on offer like buy one get one free or 2 for £5. Most of the time I get it when it is buy one get my free.
The shampoo has a fade block in it so that you hair colour will not fade. It also restore strength and brightness.
When I opened the shampoo it had a lovely fresh smell. I shampoo my hair and it lather up nicely. My hair felt really soft and nice and when I brush my hair it was really easy to do. After about a day my hair did look greasy so I had to wash it agian. I was a bit dispappointed because it got greasy so quickly. When I use other shampoo my hair goes greasy about 3 days after i washed it.
The shampoo is very easy to rinse out and my hair felt very smooth and it looked healthier.
You can also get the conditioner for blonde and there are other colours to get. You can get it in a 900ml bottle for about £3.99
I do like Tresemme shampoo but I did not really like this one because my hair went greasy to quickly. I think that the Tresemme Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo is really good if you have dry hair.
Thanks for reading
Due to the eternal credit crunch that is my life (!) this shampoo (and the accompanying conditioner) appealed to me as the price is much better than other shampoos for coloured blonde hair. I have to say though that it bitterly dispappointed both me and my partner. No matter how much we rinsed this product out under our power shower there was so much build up our hair looked greasy and we developed dandruff. This meant even after washing our hair once a day we looked like we'd been pouring chip oil on our scalps. I really wanted to like this as I always love a bargain but it was a complete false economy and I'd rather not put any shampoo in my hair than this in future. Both of us had wondered if our hair had just developed a greasy feel and dandruff but the moment we switched shampoos we had no such problems. I would never buy this again for that reason.
I have blonde hair and thought I would give this product a try.
It is shampoo made by Tresemme. It comes packaged in a very nice bottle which is gold in colour and has an easy to use flip top lid.
This particular conditioner is especially designed to keep natural blonde and colour treated hair at its best for as long as possible.
It has a special 'colourthrive with fade block technology' This product claims to restore strength and brightness for a multi tonal effect. It also contains chamomile extract.
Its very easy to use just gently massage the scalp and roots with fingertips to work into a lather. The shampoo is very easy to rinse out. The shampoo is a great consistency and produces a very nice rich lather. It had a lovely fresh smell which was very pleasant. After using the shampoo my hair was noticeably brighter in colour. It felt a lot softer and hydrated. I was also surprised at how easy it was to brush my hair out after. It was very smooth and looked healthier.I was very pleased with the results and the shine the shampoo gave my hair was great.
The conditioner is also available to use along side this shampoo. The shampoo is also available for other colours of hair.
The conditioner comes in a 900ml bottle and it cost £4.92 ( but often on a special offer and is on a buy one get one free offer at the moment ) Available from supermarkets and chemists.
