Tresemme Salon Silk Conditioner.
As many of you who have read my other reviews probably know I do like to use the tresemme profession line of products. I have been using a vast range of these products for a long time now and have always been very impressed. I have used most of the tresemme conditioners and have found this to be the best for my hair which is very thick and heavy. I use this along with the smooth shampoo and find it gives absolutely fantastic results. My hair feels wonderfully soft and smooth and has a wonderful shine to it.
I purchase the 900ml bottle but I do believe there is a smaller option available. The bottle is about 25cm tall and 10cm in diameter, these are estimates as I have not actually measured the bottle. It is a white semi transparent bottle which means you can see as the product depletes, and has a small black lid which has a snap top which means you can easily squeeze out the required about and don't need to fiddle with unscrewing lids when you're in the shower. The bottle and cap are all recyclable which is fantastic.
The product is made by unilever who are a very well known and trusted company. The conditioner is designed deeply moisturize your hair and to help calm down and weigh down frizzy hair. Although my hair is thick I do have problems with a certain about of frizz and this conditioner works great. It contains Argan oil from morocco which is nourishing and smoothing. The product contains vitamin H and silk proteins that help to tame and gives a fantastically smooth finish.
I wash my hair as normal and then place a liberal amount on to my hair and massage into the roots and into the ends. I then leave it for about ten minutes or sometimes longer, the product states 2-3 minutes but I prefer to keep it in more for a deeper condition. After rinsing my hair feels absolutely fantastic and soft and is so much easier to style. It ideal for daily use and does not dry out my hair at all. The scent is sweet and is lovely and my hair smells clean and fresh and the scent stays in my hair for days.

I buy mine in Tesco generally when it is on offer as it quite expensive at around the £5 mark, but Tesco frequently do offers on the whole tresemme range reducing the cost usually by about a third. Although this product is very expensive, compared to other profession hair care products on the market they are very reasonably priced and in my opinion well worth the extra cost, but I recommend waiting for offers in order to stock up and save money. My huge bottle lasts me over a month and I use it maybe four to five time a week which makes it quite good value for money when taking all things into account. The product is widely available in most supermarkets and beauty stores.
Don't be put off by what hairdresser say about the tresemme range as I would highly recommend them and have always found them to be a fantastic range of products.
To be honest, I don't really like spending much money on hair care products, especially the basics like shampoo and conditioner. I am currently saving for a car, and basics like this are where I am cutting down on my spending.
As long as my hair feels clean and reasonably well looked after after using these products, I'm happy! I usually buy the cheap Alberto Balsam ones which are about a pound each but I do sometimes buy more luxurious brands if I spot them on offer at half price.
I noticed while shopping in Tesco a couple of weeks ago that they had the whole range of Tresemme shampoo & conditioner on sale at half price and thought it'd be a good time to stock up. I have always been a fan of this brand because the quality is so good. I bought several of the shampoos and conditioners, including this one which is the salon silk conditioner. This appealed to me because it is for dry & frizz prone hair and Tresseme claim that it detangles, softens and tames.
I am in the process of trying to grow my hair (it is shoulder length at the min) and so it hasn't been cut or even trimmed since last September, and it is starting to get a little frizzy and it doesn't look quite as 'tidy'. It does tangle very easily too (always has done) and is usually quite dry because of how much I straighten it, so this obviously seemed like the perfect conditioner. I only paid around £1.70 for the 500ml bottle and the same sized bottle retails at £3.50, so I was really happy with my bargain. I doubt that I would have paid full price to be honest as nearly £4 is a little expensive and I have cheaper conditioners which are just as good.
The conditioner comes in a plastic bottle which is just your basic conditioner bottle really! It's white with black font which obviously has all of the info that you would want to know and it has a lid which when pressed down flips up the lid so you can get the product out, but you do need to hold the bottle upside down and squeeze it which I think is a bit of a disadvantage for say elderly users who don't have that much strength - a full bottle isn't exactly light. The conditioner has a thick, lotion like consistency and it is white. Not that the colour matters! I do like the consistency though as it sits in the palm of my hand in a neat blob rather than running off my hand and into the bath water like the cheap runny conditioners do. I have shoulder length hair & two of these medium sized blobs is enough to get a rich lather and full coverage.
I have a habit of leaving conditioner on for at least 2 minutes before I wash it out, so while I lay in the bath with it on my hair I will just relax. The smell isn't too obnoxious or overpowering so it doesn't make the bathroom atmosphere unpleasant, in fact it is quite subtle and I find it to be relaxing. I would describe the scent as sweet - the smell of almonds (it contains almond extract) is faintly noticeable, and it is not artificially smelling, nor does doesn't smell heavily perfumed. The conditioner is a little difficult to wash out. Because it produces such a thick and foamy lather, the foam floats around in the bath tub and makes it hard to get all of the bubbles and foam out my hair, which is why I tend to use it in the shower as it is easier to rinse out.
Once I have used the conditioner my hair, while still wet, feels extremely smooth and silky and some how lighter. It is easy to comb through and once it has been blow dried the effects are noticeable. My hair looks silkier and has a bit of a gloss to it without looking greasy or anything and it feels manageable and it doesn't tend to frizz up as much. The smell doesn't last for long, though. All in all this is a good conditioner but I have used cheaper ones which have almost as good of an effect, so it's nothing amazing or anything but it is good quality and not too bad value if you don't mind too much about the price (nearly £4).
Whilst I am always willing to try out new hair products, shampoos and conditioners, I always tend to revert back to two or three trusty favourites of mine which give me the best results. Tresemme is one such brand I have tried in the past and not been very impressed by, despite all the hype and advertising.
I have often spotted Tresemme products on promotional offers too, but have never purchased any after my first experience purely because I had always managed to find my preferred products at the time with decent prices too. So although I had tried Tresemme in the past and not been too impressed, I wasn't ruling out purchasing it again if the price was right and my other preferred products weren't available or too expensive at the time of purchase. I also bear in mind that brands are often changing their prodcuts making 'new and improved' products and are maybe worth another try, even if you had not been too impressed first time around. One such example of this is Clairol's Herbal Essences range, which I used to love until they changed all their products. I hated their new range, but have recently tried it again as they have since changed some of the range again and I found a shampoo which was quite nice. Therefore I never totally write off a hair care brand.
At Christmas I received a twin pack of Tresemme shampoo and conditioner as a gift Secret Santa at work and I was curious to try it out and see if I liked it any better than my previous experience which was some time ago.
I had high hopes the first time I used Tresemme as they claimed 'salon performance' without the salon price and I thought I was getting a luxury product for my hair, which turned out to be just ok and nothing to get excited about as I found I got better results from my usual favourites.
The conditioner that was in my gift pack was this Salon Silk Conditioner which promised to be 'Intensely moisturizing to calm frizz and tame unruly hair. Leaves hair touchably soft and salon-smooth & silky'.
This conditioner sounded like a suitable product for my long hair which is wavy and can become frizzy, even more so in damp or humid condiions, so I always use smoothing shampoo and conditioner on my hair.
I also liked the 'intensely moisturising' claim as I love my hair to feel soft and moisturised, but I did hope it wouldn't be too heavy and leave my hair feeling weighed down as I have experienced with some conditioners in the past. So as I read that this conditioner intensely moisturises to nip flyaways and unruly hair in the bud even in the most humid conditions and that its hydrating formula with vitamin H and almond oil softens hair, leaving it sleek and smooth without building it up or weighing it down, it did sound very, very promising indeed.
When I came to use the conditioner after first shampooing my hair, I didn't find the fragrance to be anything special. It was hard to describe what the scent was to be honest and although I could detect a slight almond scent, it offered nothing really appealing to me personally as I am not a lover of almond scents. I was pleased its consistency wasn't too thick, in fact it was quite light for a conditioner and runny, but it was easy to apply to my hair. After smoothing it through the ends of my hair first as directed, then applying to my crown, I made sure my hair was fully coated before leaving it for a couple of minutes as directed. My hair instantly felt softer and smoother as I applied it which is always a good sign in my experience, as I have used some terrible conditioners in the past which have left my hair feeling more dry and tatty than it did before application!
The conditioner rinsed out easily and after drying my hair there was no residue left over nor was there that awful heavy, greasy feeling you can get when a conditioner is too thick or has left residue behind despite all your rinsing. The ends of my hair felt soft and smooth, but not quite as silky smooth as I prefer and also I didn't achieve as good a shine to my hair which I have come to expect when using a quality conditioner. On the plus side, my hair did feel light and fairly smooth, but I wasn't left bowled over by this product.
I don't really like the design of the Tresemme bottles, as I recalled from my past experience the tough plastic bottle and flip lid which makes it a nightmare when you are near the end and having to shake the bottle vigourously to try and shake out the remains of the product. Squeezing the bottle is near impossible and I struggled to get all of the conditioner out of the bottle.
Tresemme Salon Silk Conditioner is a long way off being a favourite of mine, but it is certainly not the worst conditioner I have ever used. On a scale of all conditioners I have tried I would place it somewhere in the middle. I would use it again, but only if my preferred products were not available. It was a decent enough product to use, but left my hair not quite as silky smooth as I had hoped for.
Doing anything with my hair is a daily ordeal for me, taking up about half to one hour everyday and leaving me frustrated and exhausted, and sorely tempting me to cut off all my hair on many occasions.
I have long hair ( nearly upto my lower back), which is wavy and extremely prone to knotting, drying and frizz and consequently driving me crazy. The easiest solution would be keep shorter hair but for some weird reason I want to keep it long.
I am not a great fan of using lot of stuff on my hair and apart from shampooing occasionally I had never used any hair products. The only thing I had been doing to keep my hair manageable was to douse it in oil, which was pretty much the only way I could work through the knots without tearing my hair off in desperation.
Eventually I decided to try a conditioner to see if it would help. I was looking around in the conditioner section and found this one claiming to give salon quality results, and mentioned it was for dry frizz prone hair. It was a while ago, so I cant remember how much I paid for it but I think it sells for around £2 to £3 for a 500 ml bottle.
The bottle is pretty simple in design, white with a green coloured design on it and a simple cylindrical cap on top. The opening mechanism is on the very top, it flips open when you press one side of the top. The bottle is made of plastic, which is quite hard compared to most shampoos I have used.
The ingredients and usage instructions are given on the other side.
The product is white in colour, with a consistency somewhere in between meringue and whipped cream. The smell is quite pleasant, and not particularly typical of anything. The product is not exactly liquid, so you have to press the bottle and sometimes give it a bit of a shake to get it out of the bottle. I take a fairly large blob and work it through my hair after rinsing. I dont apply conditioner to the roots of my hair. I wash it off after two to three minutes and immediately, I can feel the difference in my hair. It feels quite soft and smooth.
Since I started using this conditioner, my hair has been much more manageable. It stays smooth and soft for at least two days, and it is much easier to sort the knots out while the effect lasts. Sadly, it is not permanent and you have to repeat it every two or three days if you want to maintain it that way. I have to admit, I am really lazy when it comes to these sort of things so usually I end up letting things go out of hand and go back to the conditioner when things are once more unbearable.
I haven't had any particular problems after using this product, so I think it is of fairly good quality.
As I dont use it on a regular basis, it has lasted me a long time. I guess how long it will last depends on how much and how often you use it.
To be fair, I haven't ever used any other conditioner so I cant compare but I am perfectly happy with this product and probably will continue using it for the forseeable future, unless there is something which has a longlasting effect.
A huge fan of this almost industrial sized bottle, this product is by far one of my favorite conditioners. In an opaque, white bottle with a black cap, it alludes to the claim that it's of 'salon' and 'professional' quality. Not as sweetly scented as other conditioners, neither having that harsh chemical smell, it promises smooth and silky hair.
My biggest criticism of this product is that personally, after the first few conditioning sessions, I find it intensely difficult to squeeze the thick, white formula out of the bottle. Meaning I quickly have to cut the bottle in half and store it in separate containers so I can easily scoop out the quantity I need. While it's not a problem, it is quite annoying when you're already in the shower and have to traipse around looking for kitchen scissors to cut the thin plastic. It may just be that I have weak wrists, but due to the roundness and texture of the bottle I find it so hard to grip!
While the product doesn't recommend any set time, I tend to leave it on my hair after massaging it in from the tips to the roots for the five minutes or so it takes me to do other bathroom stuff. Then I rinse. I have found the length of time you leave it on seems to make little difference, two minutes really does seem to be sufficient.
While it leaves your hair soft, it doesn't deliver the silky, salon finish the bottle makes you envisage. It certainly makes hair more manageable, but you don't get that kind of high gloss effect the adverts portray without a couple of other products thrown on top.
Overall it's a really good conditioner, excellent value for money. It's just a shame it doesn't deliver all of it's promises.
When it comes to hair products, I find it hard to trust brands easily. I don't experiment with new conditioners, or heat protect sprays, in the evening as I have no idea what awaits me in the morning.
Tresemme products have been very hit and miss for me and I've rejected them in the past, as I never know if I'll wake up in the morning with ridiculous hair and have to turn up at uni looking like the rejected backing dancer from a Cyndi Lauper music video.
Maintaining straight hair, when there's a lot of frizz waiting to be unleashed, is an expensive affair. I can't afford the price tag that comes with RedKen quality maintenance, and I don't think a lot of people can.
For this reason, Tresemme Salon Silk has definitely surprised me by becoming one of my most used brands of shampoo and conditioner.
I find that after the first day of washing, there is still some unbridled frizz (although I find this with most products to an extent).
However, I've learnt that leaving the conditioner in for about ten minutes adds untold sleekness to my hairstyle. If you have more frizz than money, I'd definitely recommend this as an every day solution, so long as you leave the conditioner in for much longer than it instructs on the label. When I haven't got great shampoo to hand I sometimes leave the conditioner in for up to fifteen minutes at a time.
The Salon Silk shampoo is also quite good, and in the past I've used the cheap Tresemme shampoo in conjunction with better quality conditioner for next-day smoothness.
If you have great straighteners (such as GHDs) I give this shampoo a massive seal of approval to those of a budget, but those with cheaper straighteners... beware.
A once off splash out on GHDs could save you a lot of money because it means your hair doesn't rely on expensive haircare products to keep it under control.
I would not, however, recommend Tresemme's Heat Protection Spray of the same series, which has not helped smooth my hair on any of the occasions I've used it. You may be tempted at the till to buy this in order to compliment your other products, but I would advise against this unless you know your hair to respond particularly well to heat protect treatments. Mine frizzes up a lot after using the heat protect spray with this conditioner, although those willing to experiment may find their hair varies.
In short, Tresemme Salon Silk conditioner is cheap, it isn't exactly "salon quality" but it is effective in the right hands and in conjunction with the right straighteners.
Tresemme Salon Silk Conditioner is one of those products which claims to be 'professional' and up to professional hair salon standards. Are these just claims or are they legit? Well, here is my review and thoughts on this product...
PRICE AND QUANTITY:
I first purchased this product whilst on a grocery top up at a major supermarket; it was on sale for the amount of £2 (and afterwards I discovered how much of a good offer this was) for a large 900ml bottle; so that is at least double the size of your standard conditioner bottle. Intrigued about its claims of professional quality, its attractive packaging, large bottle and merely the fact that it was on a special offer, I bought a bottle. This, I would say, lasts you for several months; much more than you can expect from a regular sized conditioner. If you compare the price of this to a tiny bottle of conditioner that costs the about the same amount or even more, that you are often offered at the hair salon, I believe that this product is very good value for money.
PACKAGING AND QUALITY:
This conditioner is packaged rather attractively in a large white and slightly translucent cylinder shaped bottle with a easy to function black cap. On the bottle you will find everything expected of a general conditioner bottle; the brand name, how it aids your hair, directions for use and ingredients. Though packaging is not as important as the actual product itself, I would still add that the packaging of THIS conditioner is rather more attractive than many others I have used. The smell is not unpleasant, but it is not especially spectacular either. I have never found anything wrong with the quality of this product; nor with any other Tresemme product, so I guess at least that fits in with its professional status.
This conditioner works well; after use I found that my hair was soft (though not necessarily silky) as promised; and also it was noticeably shinier and easier to brush. However, I do not think that this is anything out of the ordinary, and I would even add that I prefer some of my other conditioners to this, for example the Garnier Fructis range. This is not a bad conditioner at all- it is quite good in fact compared to most I have tried; however I do not think it can live up to its claims of being professional standard or hair salon quality.
IN CONCLUSION... :
Though I do not think it can live up to its claims of being salon quality, it is rather a good product; just do not expect too much of a spectacular result from it. Just use it as you would a normal conditioner. And I cannot really complain about an adequate product that cost me £2 for a large 900ml bottle, so I am personally pleased enough with this product. However, I do believe that this costs a large deal more bought at its recommended retail price, and so I would recommend you only buying this and stocking up on the supermarkets' frequent hair care special offers.
I've never been a great fan of Tresemme, I have used their products in the past and have not been particularly impressed, and I find their claims of 'salon performance' at cheap prices to be quite laughable as I don't find them as good as more premium brands. They are however, cheap and I don't want to splash out on fancy conditioners all the time, and so when I needed to buy a new conditioner I found myself with the Tresemme Salon Silk conditioner in my basket. I do like to try out new products and if my favourites aren't on offer or I simply fancy a change, I generally check out any special offers on other brands.
This time the offer was on the Tresemme range, although they are quite often on some form of special offer everywhere. You can find these products in places such as Boots, but most supermarkets stock them too. I had already browsed for a decent shampoo in the range so next on my list was a conditioner. I have fine, thin hair that is prone to fizz and also has oily roots which require washing every day, however the roots can end up quite dry not helped by the fact I straighten my hair somewhat most days as it's naturally a wavy, frizzy mess. As my hair is thin and fine, conditioners will often weigh it down and make it quite limp, and I do sometimes avoid using a conditioner at all when washing my hair. I tend to only use condition on the very ends of my hair and it's generally a wash in and wash out trick as if I leave it in too long my hair will end up weighed down. The Salon Silk conditioner really stood out for me as it promises to reduce frizz and smooth hair without weighing it down. The bottle states how it's light enough for daily use and the silk proteins will tame unruly hair and leave it smooth and 'salon-soft.'
I hate the design of Tresemme bottles. They are quite tough plastic with a flip lid which makes it a nightmare when you are near the end as it often involves shaking the bottle quite hard as the tough plastic makes it impossible to squeeze the remains of the product out. I also think Tresemme are trying to fit in with the salon image of making those giant 900ml bottles of their products, but I always stick to the 500ml bottles, which I did in this instance. The 500ml Salon Silk conditioner is currently only £2 in Asda, and the 900ml is £4.30 so it's not rocket science to work out which is better value for money although I should mention the larger bottles are on offer 3 for £10. If you're trying out a product for the first time however, then those large bottles will be a waste if the product turns out to be useless for your hair.
The conditioner doesn't smell particularly brilliant; I find it to be quite a standard conditioner type of smell. It's not too thick in consistency, I would say more on the runny side, but it's easy to apply to the hair. After smoothing it through the ends of my hair I wash it out straight away but the instructions suggest leaving it in for 2-3 minutes - this isn't ideal for my hair type. My hair instantly feels softer and smoother, always a good sign. I have used terrible conditioners in the past, some which instantly make hair feel more tatty and dry than it originally started out as! The conditioner rinses out well and after drying there's no residue left over or that awful heavy, greasy feeling you can get when a conditioner is too thick. When my hair is dry the ends are soft and smooth, and the quality is probably what I expect from a cheaper brand. I would say that it's probably not as smooth and frizz free as I would like, but my hair is certainly not weighed down. I would have preferred more shine to my hair, but for the price I can't complain too much. I have used better conditioners for around the same price, one of my favourites being the Pantene Aqua Light conditioner, but it's not bad and does leave my hair feeling soft. After using the product nearly every day I didn't notice any change in condition to my hair, it delivered the same quality each time so I knew what to expect. The 500ml bottle did last me quite a while, but I do advise to be careful when dispensing the product as it's quite runny and you might end up with too much coming out of the bottle.
I wouldn't mind using this conditioner again, for the price it does a good enough job, but I wouldn't class it as one of my favourites. The Tresemme range is always on special offer so keep an eye out for any offers currently available, and when trying the product for the first time I wouldn't recommend going for a large 900ml bottle!
Okay, so my search for a shampoo/conditioner duo to sort out my hair continues.....it's a bit like a soap opera
This time it was the turn of Tresemme's 'salon silk' shampoo and conditioner. I had my hair bleach highlighted a few months ago and for some reason now its starting to look and feel awful. I can never seem to get it smooth and it retains the moisture a lot, a bit like a sponge so I wanted something that would give it moisture AND calm down the frizz. I saw these in Boots in a handy travel size and thought i'd give them a go, at £1.35 each and plus if they didnt live up to their expectations, i wasn't stuck with the whopping 900ml bottle that Tresemme products usually come in. Im glad I did!
The salon silk range claims to add moisture and give a smooth, silky finish to hair. It contains vitamin H and Almond so you'd expect it to be really thick and luxurious, a real thirst-quencher for dry hair.
The products do smell nice, cant really describe the smell but its the same generic smell of Tresemme products. The shampoo is a slightly opaque, jelly-like consistency and lathers really well, im one of those people who like a good head of bubbles! The conditioner wasnt thick like i was expecting it to be but glided into my hair well.
I shampooed twice, it didnt feel sqeaky clean but thats not nessicarily a bad thing. Applied a blob of conditioner to the ends and left that in for 5 minutes. On rinsing it did feel very sliky.
Why is it as your washing your hair it feels fab but when it comes to drying the results you'd hoped for are just non-existant? My hair just felt really dry and poofy and the ends stuck out like Worzel Gummidge (a scarecow with straw-like hair for those of you born after 1985). It looked and felt terrible i felt the need to drown it with 3 pumpfuls of serum and then put it in a bun to try and flatten it down.
I wouldn't recommend this product as it simply doesnt do what it claims. Silly me for getting my hopes up yet again.
The never-ending search for a haircare line for poofy/snapping/dry/frizzy hair continues....stay tuned!!!
I have extremely dry hair, and it's also very curly, which I hate! Subsequently, I straighten my hair pretty much everyday, which does take its toll on my hair. It becomes pretty dry and I get a lot of split ends too. My regular shampoo and conditioner doesn't really do much to improve its condition at all. I therefore decided to try Tresemme. I had been recommended it by so many people who couldn't praise it enough.
The conditioner comes in quite a large bottle compared to normal conditioner bottles. It contains 900ml, and retails for a price of £3.99 at most places. They normally have some kind of special offers however, and you can sometimes get buy one get one free, or half-price which is really good. I find that a full bottle lasts me about 6 months, which is really good value, especially considering the quality of the product.
The conditioner smells really nice. It does smell similar to how it smells when you get your hair washed at a hairdressers. It's a nice fresh smell, but not too overwhelming or sickly. The creme is white and opaque and is also really thick. It has a marble-type look to it, and looks really luxurious. Due to the thickness of the cream, I find that I don't have to use as much as I would normally use, which helps to save money.
You do as you would with any other conditioner, and simply massage it into your hair and wait a few minutes for it to soak in. I normally wait about 2 minutes... I have waited 5 minutes before and my hair has looked quite greasy after I washed it off so I try not to leave it on too long.
As soon as you start washing it off, the texture of your hair is SO SOFT! I was actually amazed by it! It felt like I was touching silk, and my hair is never that soft! It feels really soft and stays that way even after drying. Once my hair was straightened it looked much glossier, and really shined in the light! It felt so much healthier too!
I've been receiving so many compliments since I changed my shampoo and conditioner to Tresemme and I really can't praise it enough!
We have all seen the treseme adverts on TV, the haircare brand that claims to be as good as salon quality, but without the salon price tag. The fact that I have never actually seen it used in any of the hairdressers that I have been too always made me question this claim slightly, but after having borrowed a friend's shampoo and conditioner I was converted.
The products come in various different size bottles, with a great big bottle if you wash your hair frequently and can't be bothered to keep popping off to the shops to buy more. It is not exactly cheap, at about three pounds for a 500ml bottle, but it is similar in price to other quality brands.
It smells divine, not fruity like some shampoos, but just like a hairdressers, that is the only way to describe it. It makes you feel as if you are getting your hair washed in a salon. The conditioner is really thick and conditions really deeply, leaving your hair feeling moisturised nourished, and looking noticeably shinier. This is great for my thick hair, and also helps to detangle it whilst I wash it. The product goes really well with the shampoo, and for quite a long time I used both these products, along with the spray that protects your hair before you blow dry it or straighten it.
I was very happy with the product, but unfortunately I think it aggravated a spot of dandruff, that I can be prone to if not careful. Someone else I spoke to said that treseme was known for this, so I stopped using the brand and the problem went away. I was very sad to say goodbye to the treseme brand though, and if you are not prone to dry skin then I would definitely recommend the shampoo and conditioner.
One of my favourite hair care brands has to be Tresemme. I have always loved their products ever since I first tried out one of their shampoos. I really believe that Tresemme products are professional and affordable.
Recently I purchased their Salon Silk shampoo and conditioner. There was an offer on in Asda which was something like 2 for £5, and as they are big 900ml bottles and sure to last me a really long time I thought that this was excellent value for money.
You can also buy this conditioner from most other supermarkets, Boots and Superdrug, Savers and Bodycare.
The Salon Silk conditioner works best when used after the Salon Silk shampoo. To use it you just simply work some into your hair, all over from roots to tips, and then you rinse it out. I sometimes like to leave it on my hair for about a minute before I rinse it out, as this seems to give it extra moisture and make it much softer and more smooth. But don't leave it on for too long as it might start to get a bit greasy.
The conditioner itself is white and creamy. It is not too thick or heavy and it feels quite smooth and soft as you work it into your hair.
It didn't take long to rinse this out, and there was no residue left behind after it was fully rinsed out and dried. My hair felt clean, smooth and very silky. It says on the back of the bottle that this conditoner will moisturise and protect your hair - it certainly did this. My hair feels beautiful.
I loved the conditioner and I am so happy with the results. I am sure that the bottle will last me a really long time, as it has 900ml in it, but when I run out I would definitely consider buying this again.
Definitely recommended. 5/5. Perfect!
What a great product! I have very dry hair and this conditioner is one of the best as tackling the problem. Although it is not one of the cheapest products available it is definitely value for money. The bottle sizes are larger than most at 900ml which is why I believe it looks more expensive. However depending on your length of hair and hair type this bottle should last a few months.
I use this product along with a Treseme shampoo and it makes brushing my hair so much easier when it's wet. I have long hair which is also wavy and I have struggled in the past to find a conditioner that can help control my hair. After using this conditioner it makes my hair easy to style without worrying it will go frizzy.
I generally leave the conditioner on for a few minutes and try not to put too much around the roots of my hair as it can make it a bit greasy. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with dry, curly or long hair it makes managing it so much easier.
The value for money that you get from this product is unreal, whilst looking at the price labels at the supermarket it might appear to be more expensive but when you compare the amount you actually get in the bottle it is very good value for money! They advertise that is this conditioner is similar to what is used in salons and i couldn't agree more, it leaves your hair feeling soft, it shines and is very easy to manage. I have curly frizzy hair so it is very important that i find hair products to help me control it and have found this conditioner seems to outshine any others, I hardly have any knots! The only downside is that after using this conditioner for sometime i have found that my hair starts having a bit of a build up and can get quite greasy but using an alternative conditioner for a few days sorts it out, I think this may be due to how rich the conditioner is. But besides that I would higher recomend this conditioner.
Sometimes I get rather vain and wish to take care of my flowing locks, albeit on a bit of a budget. Tresemme appealed to me because of the sheer amount of cosmetic hair-gunk you can buy for the money. Very often this is packaged in 500ml twin packs with a 500ml bottle of Tresemme's shampoo look for the black and white packs in places such as Home Bargains (formerly Half Price or Less, who changed their name presumably cos most of their stuff was neither half price nor less any more), or if you're lucky, the Pound Shop.
Anyway, bargain hunting aside, this conditioner isn't actually too bad. You only need to use a little after a shower, even if you have quite lengthy hair like myself. Combing it through whilst rinsing is the best way to ensure it is fully dispersed, as it is a bit heavy sometimes and can often hang in clumps. I don't always condition my hair, or even use shampoo to wash it, as removing all the natural oils is not good for your roots or scalp. However, when needed this provides a very refreshing feeling.
On an eco-friendly note, Tresemme is owned by Alberto-Culver Australia, who are, according to their own and other websites, dedicated to the sourcing of sustainable and non-destructive palm oil for their products. I may do some further digging into this and amend my review accordingly, but if you are concerned about where such household products source such things and the negative impact they have on the environment then Tresemme should be ok for the green vote too :) - or not, see my amendment below...
AMENDMENT TO THIS REVIEW:
My last comments about the green vote may not be entirely accurate. It prompted me to do some digging and the whole palm-oil inclusion thing may be more complex than first realised. Palm oil and its production, in case you don't know, is pretty rotten for the environment. I won't go into it here in depth, but basically it is in countless household products and is sourced from tropical regions, usually at the expense of countless acres of natural rainforest. Manufacturers are required to list their ingredients included in these products; there is, however, a portion of deceit going on here. Aware that terms such as "palm oil", "palm fat" and so on are likely to impact on sales, extracts of palm oil are listed in its stead, with terms such as "cetearyl alcohol", "Stearamidopropyl dimethylamine" and other such baffling terms. Comprehensive lists can be found on numerous sites. Anyway, Tresemme conditioners contain such extracts, though there are no visible markings denoting the oil's origins.
I'm docking this product a star for now, due to the ambiguity. I don't want to preach to anyone on how they should direct their buying habits, but to me this is an important issue. There is plenty of information out there if you're interested in these issues, I suggest starting by typing "palm oil" and "deforestation" into Google.
