Tresemme as a brand I really like. I have very long hair which means I get through shampoo and conditioner like no ones business. and the 900ml bottles of shampoo are ideal meaning I do not have to buy hundreds of bottles. I have one bottle and it lasts me a long time.
I tend to buy Tresemme products when they are on offer. When I had bought this, it was buy one get one free in Tescos - a bargain! I had never tried their colour thrive shampoo before and decided as a brunette, I would give it a shot. I have natural brown hair and when it said on the bottle that it enhances colour for both natural and coloured hair I thought this may have some kind of magical powers.
The smell of this shampoo also is not great. It smells ever so slightly of hair dye unlike all their other shampoos which smell really nice. Also the colour is translucent brown unlike their other brands which are usually a clear colour. The first impressions of the contents of the bottle really did not go down well with me.
With this product you only need a small amount of shampoo in your hand to make it lather up and massage into your scalp for clean feeling hair. However, I found after my hair had dried, it was not brushing as well as it had before and it left a slight (and it really was not a lot) residue in my hair. Maybe I did not rinse my hair properly, though I rinsed it in the same way I always do and Tresemme's other products have not done this before.
Does this product enhance my natural hair colour? No. It still looks like the same brunette hair I've lived with for 20 years. May hair does not appear at all glossier or a richer colour.
I feel maybe this product should be aimed more towards the coloured hair market because this makes little difference to my natural hair colour. It washes OK and the appearance and smell of the liquid is not particularly fragrant. For natural brunettes: I would not bother.
I've always been a fan of the Tresemme brand but my hair has a love hate relationship with the products! It seems to quickly build up an intolerance to the shampoos - which leaves my hair feeling and looking heavier and unwashed. Not exactly the look I'm going for!
So, why did I buy this stuff you ask? I haven't used Tresemme for a long while, must be well over 12 months now and I was hitting a low point in the shampoo department, not quite finding anything I liked, so when I saw the Tresemme on offer in Asda, two bottle for £5, I thought, 'Hey, maybe it'll be different this time around!'
I'll get back to you on that one later!
So, I'm a brunette, darkish chestnut brown with lighter highlights (natural I might add!) and have found in the past that hair colored specific shampoos have worked well on my hair. Having used Vosene for a while, my hair was feeling dry, dull and stripped so I thought this might put some vibrancy and life back into it.
The bottle (900mL), claims to 'Restore colour vitality, retaining colour 5x longer'. Now I think this will be more obvious / appropriate for those who dye their hair, but it continues to say, 'improves vibrancy in natural or colour treated hair'. Well, I'm a natural! My hair needs some improvement! Into the shopping basket you go.
It's made with cinnamon and cocoa bean extracts and I find the cinnamon smell to be quite strong, with a hint of something flowery behind it. When you switch over to the back of the bottle it reads, 'The non colour depositing formula, with cinnamon and cocoa bean extracts, removes dulling mineral deposits to restore vibrancy and radiant shine. For colour treated brunette hair, Fade Block Technology prolongs the life of your colour by up to 5x by locking in and protecting colour depth*. Your hair will stay vibrant and shiny wash after wash, so you can relax until your next colour appointment'. The * further down the bottle in tiny writing reads, 'when used with Tresemme Colour lock leave in conditioner spray'.
That annoys me. It's almost like saying this product will work amazingly...if you go and buy the leave in spray, oh and don't forget, we advise you to buy the partnering condition too. How much conditioner does one head of hair need? And, I'm looking to save money, that's why I bought this on offer. *grumbles*
The bottle is large and heavy. It's shiny milk chocolate colour is attractive but it doesn't sit well on my bathroom shelf. In fact, because of the size of the bottles, I have to keep this in my wardrobe where there is some shelf space. It also is your standard 'tip and squeeze', which can cause quite a mess when your hands are wet in the shower and you're trying to lug it and squeeze it. The shampoo comes out easy enough when the bottle is relatively new and full, but later down the line it gets more difficult, and I wonder how much of the 900mL you loose because of this. I'd much prefer some pump action!
The shampoo itself is a shimmery, sandy brown colour that is quite thick and sticky in consistency. A little doesn't seem to go a long way with this either, but too much and your lathered from head to toe, so it takes a bit of practice. After the first wash, my hair did feel amazing. Whether I had been tricked by the fancy wording on the bottle or just wanted to 'see' real results, I did think my hair looked a lot richer in colour. It felt lighter and fluffy, and the natural highlights seemed to stand out more (in a good way). Therefore, I was impressed. Then the second wash, still impressed. Third wash...my hair seemed to get greasier much sooner. Fourth wash...have I even washed my hair? That is how quick my hair built up intolerance to this shampoo. Now, I was good, I stuck with it for about two weeks worth of hair washes, which would roughly be 10 or so, and it only got worse. I immediately switched back to the Vosene for the next few washes and it steadily kept it's clean-look longer between washes.
In response the question I posted at the start...I was disappointed that it was no different this time around, that first wash feeling and look only lasts as long as two or three washes. After much talk with a friend, she recommended I try switching between shampoos, so my hair doesn't get the chance to build up an intolerance. This is something I'd never done before, but I thought why not. There's a lot of shampoo there that I don't much fancy chucking away!
Now I use the Tresemme once a week. My hair seems to have responded well to this and it feels cleaner for longer now that I mix up my shampooing routine. It's not exactly ideal having to switch between shampoos at every wash, but it that how my hair wants to play, I'll play along till I find something better.
Would I recommend it? Yes, sort of. That first wash look and feel was exactly what I'd hope for, and remember, everyone's hair is different. I have spoke to a few people who say they feel their hair build up and intolerance to Tresemme, so I'm starting to think maybe it is something to do with the thick, heavy consistency?
I have used this shampoo and conditioner for almost 3 years now and it's one of my favourites. Here is my review for Tresemme Colour Thrive Brunette Shampoo:
1. The Smell:
For me, the most important bit when choosing a shampoo and conditioner. This smells quite nice actually, almost chocolatey in a way and quite creamy. I think it's quite nice so I give it 4 stars.
2. The Lather:
This is another really important thing when picking a shampoo. I like to know my hair is getting a good, deep clean. This lathers really well, really thick and rather creamy. It rinses out ok and I can also feel my hair has been smoothed. Lather gets 5 stars from me!
3. The Result:
This is of course important. My hair is very thick, frizzy, naturally curly and naturally dark brown (almost espresso I would say) and I always leave it to dry naturally. So after a couple of hours when my hair is dry, I can feel it's silky soft and I feel it shines way more than usual. Also the smell stays on your hair, which is always nice. I always use matching conditioner with my shampoo so cannot comment on whether this is down to the shampoo alone, but I think it helps! Result gets 5 stars from me.
Overall, this is a lovely shampoo that adds shine and softness to my hair. Thumbs up from me! Price wise a 500ml bottle can be found at Boots for around the £3 mark, which for the size you get is pretty good!
Tresemme Colour Thrive Brunette Shampoo
Personally, I like this shampoo and I use a lot of Tresemme products, but I don't find them on par with salon quality despite what there advertisement states. Throughout the years I have been lucky enough to try out quite a few of the shampoos that you buy from a salon (thanks to a hairdresser friend) and although they are always pricier the results they deliver are unmatchable by supermarket brands. That is not to say that some of the supermarket brands don't do an honourable job, especially considering the price difference.
I have nearly finished my 500ml bottle of this Tresemme colour thrive brunette shampoo for all of us brunettes out there, and I thought now would be the perfect time to review it. Overall, I have been very happy with this shampoo and I will be buying it again in the future.
This shampoo lathers very nicely and you don't need to use much of this product to get even long hair properly washed (I use a blob that is roughly the size of a 50 pence piece). Also, another bonus is that this product rinses out easily leaving my hair immediately feeling clean and feeling conditioned while being refreshed.
The shampoo is a bit runnier than I would like, I find that I often have to apply it to my head as quickly as I have squirted it out. However, when it is applied to your hair it turns into a lovely lather, as I have mentioned above, which doesn't feel too runny but thick and luxurious. Personally, I don't like the colour of this shampoo, it is a very uninspiring beige.
However, I don't think this is anything too off putting, it does have a nice pearlescent look to it. Furthermore, this shampoo doesn't have much of a fragrance, which is nice but I do like my hair to smell scented rather than just clean.
When I bought this I bought it in a three Tresemme products for £10 special offer, which I thought was great. I believe that a 500ml bottle of this will cost you somewhere between £4 and £5. This shampoo is also very easily recognisable from the majority of all the other Tresemme products because it is packaged in a brown bottle that fits in with the name and product within.
A bottle of this lasts me around 3 months, but I would hasten to add that I do tend to use about three different shampoos all at once, chopping and changing what I use on a daily basis. However, as this comes in a 500ml bottle it will last you for a reasonable amount of time.
There are a few things that I don't entirely like about this shampoo but it does leave my hair feeling clean and looking good. I would happily recommend this shampoo to anyone to give it a try and I think that it deserves a well earned four out of five stars.
Recently I ran out of my usual shampoo and wasn't able to get hold of it. Friends had recommended Tresemme to me previously so whilst in Boots I decided to purchase the colour thrive brunette shampoo by Tresemme as it was on offer.
I have been using the shampoo for a couple of weeks now and am finding that my hair is much softer and easier to manage compared to my usual product. My hair is definitely shinier and less prone to tangles. I have received positive comments from work colleagues and friends asking what I have done differently.
This product is good value for money. I find that I don't need much shampoo for my hair (shoulder length), meaning that it goes a long way.
I suffer from very frizzy hair, and although this doesn't assist directly with this (which it doesn't claim to) I have found that I need to use less anti-frizz products now to combat this problem.
Once I run out of my styling products I am definitely going to try other Tresemme products and will be purchasing the brunette shampoo again.
____ Tresemme Colour Thrive Brunette Shampoo____
I like a bargain as much as the next person so when i saw this rrp£4.99 or 2 for £5 i decided to buy the shampoo and the conditioner.
__Expectations/what it says on the bottle__
Having never used Tresemme products before i wasn't sure what to expect but a couple of my friends say there are amazing and they have nice hair so i thought they can't be that bad.
One of the claims on the bottle was that it is supposed to improve vibrancy in natural or colour treated hair.I have to say that i didn't notice a difference in the shade of my hair!!
When it came to using this i used the same amount i would have if it had been my normal shampoo and i have to say it didn't leave my hair feeling that nice.My hair was defiantly not as soft using this.
The amount of time between washes was the same if not slightly longer than when i usually do it.(normally gets down every 2 days)
One "good" thing about this was that with the cinnamon and cocoa bean extracts it left my hair smelling nice.
I wouldn't recommend buying this but it can be bought from Tescos,Asdas, Boots etc
