Due to colouring my hair quite a lot and not having it cut nearly often enough, I have terrible split ends. Luckily, my hair is long and you can't see how bad the condition of it is half of the time... but I can feel it. Because of this, I decided to try the Tresemme Split Remedy conditioner in an attempt to help the condition of my hair.
It is recommended that you use this product with the matching Split Remedy shampoo but I didn't do this so I cannot comment on how the two work together.
This particular conditioner comes in a white bottle which is quite typical for conditioners from Tresemme. The bottle also has silver and aqua text which I really like the look of. It's a fresh and attractive looking bottle because of the colours. The product information is clearly printed on the front of the bottle too, stating that the conditioner can help reduce the appearance of split ends by 80%, which is why I bought it in the first place. The cap on the top of the bottle presses open, leaving only a small slot for the conditioner to come out of. I have found that over time, the little hole becomes clogged up which makes squeezing the conditioner out harder than when I first bought it.
As earlier stated, I didn't use this product with the matching Tresemme shampoo but instead, quite a few different shampoos on different occasions. After the first use, this conditioner left my hair feeling quite heavy and not at all fluffy and bouncy like others do. But, my split ends did look a bit better than they did before. I wondered if my hair felt bad due to the shampoo used with it which is why I tried a couple of others as well. Unfortunately, with each shampoo used, my hair felt like it had quite a big build-up of product on it and it just didn't feel very nice at all. Even though my split ends looks better, the feel of my hair was just not good enough.
This product costs £4.99 for a 500ml bottle and can often be found in some kind of offer depending on where you shop. Regardless, for £4.99 I don't expect to pay for something that makes my hair feel terrible. I gave this conditioner a try for a little over a week and even with a range of different shampoos, the result was always the same. I have been a fan of Tresemme products in the past but I certainly won't be buying this one again, nor the shampoo that goes with it.
I bought this Tresemme Split Remedy Conditioner along with its matching shampoo as I was searching for a solution to combat my split ends and I thought that this would work for me as I have trusted the Tresemme brand to bring about results in the past. Indeed, I have bought some of their other hair products in the past and have been suitably impressed by them, but this one was a big and bitter disappointment.
At 2 bottles for £6 (the other bottle I bought was the matching shampoo) or £4.99 for a single bottle, this was quite pricey for a conditioner even on special offer. There are good conditioners that do a fantastic job for around £1, but most of those do not claim to 'mend' split ends, which is what would have been ideal for me. So I thought (wrongly) that it would be worth it to splash out on this conditioner.
This conditioner is packaged in a tall sleek Tresemme bottle, which does look quite professional and a bit like what you would expect to come from a salon. It is quite easy to operate and looks nice so little complaint about the packaging. However, there is a problem with most Tresemme shampoo and conditioners, and that is that it is really hard to get the conditioner out one you are nearing the last bits of conditioner as it is simply too hard to squeeze out. So more than a bit of the precious 500ml of conditioner ends up being completely wasted. The only way around this I can think of would be to rinse it out with a bit of water into your palm, but the idea of watery conditioner is not ideal.
This conditioner did not live up to what it promised, or even its name. It is not a 'remedy' for my split ends since after many washes there is no visible difference and I still have as many split ends as ever. And this is using this paired up with the shampoo as well! This is such a disappointment as it promised such wonderful things that it just couldn't live up to leaving me all the more angry that I decided to pay so much for such a product.
And do you know what? It is not even that great of a conditioner! It is usable, I suppose, and though I find my hair slightly more manageable after use it is nowhere near as good as some (may I add much cheaper) conditioners I have tried before. My hair does not feel noticeably softer, smoother and I certainly can't see any added shine to it. So, it lacks even the basics of what I require from a conditioner. This is certainly not salon quality, whatever it says on the bottle.
In conclusion, this conditioner just DID NOT WORK for what I intended it for. It is an embarrassment to call it a 'Split Remedy', quite frankly. I just really don't agree with brands promising what they cannot deliver. Why get our hopes up when the results just aren't there? Unfortunately I would not recommend this product and would give it 2 out of 5 stars.
After falling ill with glandular fever a couple of years ago, the condition of my hair has been rather depressing. The outer layers of hair are randomly brittle and course and split very easily. When I saw Tresemme's Split Remedy I was eager to try it out -- I have used a lot of Tresemme products in the past and have always found them to be great.
The first thing I noticed when clicking open the lid was the scrummy smell. It's a fruity feminine scent that's not over-powering but is strong enough to notice. Using a generous amount of the conditioner (not too much, as this can leave your hair feeling heavy and 'coated') I covered my hair from about midway down to the tips, then used the remainder for the root area. I was careful not to rough up my hair as this damages the hair shaft even more. I left it in for about 2 minutes and then rinsed it off. It felt soooo silky and untangled, it was lovely! It felt properly treated. And when I dried my hair afterwards it remained smooth and lightweight. The split ends were less noticeable, but it was only after about a week's use that I really noticed the difference.
Don't expect to have miracle hair afterwards, but for the price you can expect to see a noticeable difference.
After seeing this Tresemme split remedy in my local Tesco, I picked up the shampoo and conditioner to see if it would do what it claims and reduce split ends. My hair isn't in the best of conditions and has quite a few split ends so I was hopeful it would reduce them.
The Tresemme split remedy conditioner is widely available to buy from most supermarkets and places like Boots and Superdrug. A 500ml bottle will cost you around the £5 mark but can often be found on various offers such as buy 3 for the price of 2.
The packaging is typical of the Tresemme brand being tall and round in shape. I thing I like most about the packaging is the colour, it's a pet hate of mine having the same brand shampoo and conditioner bottles being exactly the same in colour and design because it means faffing around trying to figure out which is which. This white colour is the total opposite of the black shampoo so I can grab it easily whilst in the shower. The selling point for me was the claim made on the bottle that this can reduce 80% of split ends in just three washes.
To get the conditioner out of the bottle you simply press the lid at the top of the bottle and it will come out to reveal a small hole. The consistency of it is very thick, I've found that after using it a few times it tends to dry around the hole of the bottle and it's a nightmare to dispense but I've learnt to close the lid after every use and it isn't as bad now. The conditioner is white in colour and has the same scent as the shampoo, smelling of nothing in particular, just clean. I would prefer if it had more of a girly fragrance to it but it isn't essential. I apply a small amount of the conditioner to the ends of my hair then rub the excess on the top of my hair and tend to leave it for a few minute whilst I get on with washing another area of my body. When I wash it out I don't come across any problems with rinsing all of the conditioner out.
I use this conditioner alongside the matching split remedy shampoo and can't say I find the results particularly exciting. I bought them on the sole claim that this would reduce split ends and can't say that it has. My split ends do appear to look better after I've dried and styled my hair but it doesn't last for long and my hair goes back to looking like it usually does. That being said, it does leave my hair looking clean and fresh.
I wouldn't buy this again as it is quite expensive for a conditioner that just leaves my hair clean. If it did what it said and reduced split ends then that would be different but as it doesn't I wouldn't recommend this.
I have discovered that since having my hair lightened, that it is now more prone to dry and split ends. It's annoying, because the roots have remained greasy and it's always difficult to find a solution in terms of a good conditioning treatment. If it's too 'heavy' then it makes my roots greasy quicker, but if it's not intensive enough, then obviously it does no good at all to my dry and splitting ends.
I tried to use Tresemme Split Remedy Conditioner after I had read about it in a magazine. I've used lots of Tresemme products before, in fact, Tresemme used to be the only hair care range I used to use at one time, until I found that my hair seemed to be lacking somewhat in shine and manageability and I switched brands for a long time.
I bought this Tresemme Split Remedy Conditioner from Boots and I paid £4.99 for a large sized 500ml bottle. This product makes fairly big clams, stating that it is made to restore the condition of my hair and repair my hair's split end problem in only three washes (!!). I thought this was a fairly unbelievable claim, to be honest but as I'm rather gullible, I decided to give it a go.
The packaging of this 'special' conditioning treatment looks much the same as every other product in the Tresemme range. The bottle is large, made of fairly flexible white plastic, with an annoying push down lid. The conditioner itself is thin to medium level consistency and almost white in colour with next to no fragrance that I was able to detect.
It doesn't feel any different to the standard Tresemme conditioner I have used previously. I don't think it added any more moisture to my hair than any other conditioners in this range did, to be honest and it certainly hasn't mended my split ends in only three washes, as the bottle claims. In fact, I have had much better results from Tesco's own brand intensive conditioning range.
This conditioner seemed to make my hair feel and look quite flat, heavy and lifeless. It rinsed out well enough but trying to blow dry my hair into my usually afterwards was a bit of a nightmare. I found it was more unmanageable and it definitely lacked life and volume.
I won't every be buying this particular conditioner again for my hair. I used almost two thirds of the bottle and though my husband has used it about three to four times, he's not made any remarks to me about how it's made a huge difference to his own hair, either.
Quite a disappointing product all round, really.
My hair is frizzy and so after each time that I have washed it, I need to blow dry and straighten it too. This leads to it becoming dry and damaged with plenty of split ends as well. I don't like having my hair cut too often and so I tried the Split Remedy shampoo and conditioner a go. This is a review of the conditioner.
About the product
The product promises to condition the hair to leave it more manageable. It claims that it will smooth and restore the hair with a formula that won't weigh down the hair. The biggest claim by this product is that it will repair 80% of your split ends after three washes and it will continue to repair the hair further with continued use. Your hair should be left healthy, frizz free and with healthy looking ends.
Packaging and Price
The conditioner comes contained within a white plastic bottle white has a green swirl on the front. Some more information about the product is given on the back of the bottle and the bottle has a lid which you push down on in order to open and close the bottle. I bought a 500ml bottle of conditioner for £4.99 but smaller and cheaper bottles are available. It can be bought from stores such as Boots and Superdrug, large supermarkets and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The conditioner smells almost identical to the shampoo. It has the same aroma as most of the Tresemme products which is a fresh and clean one but one that doesn't smell of anything in particular. The conditioner is white in colour and a little runnier than the average conditioner. It is easy to dispense from the bottle and you don't need to use much of the conditioner. It coats the hair well and a little goes a long way. It hasn't caused me to experience any discomfort or irritations. Once you have finished with the conditioner, it is easily rinsed out of the hair.
It feels really hydrating and it detangles the hair well making it easy to brush through and dry. Once the hair is dry, is feels soft and smooth. It is less frizzy and the split ends are less evident although I can't really tell if they have been mended or stuck together. The product left my hair even more weighed down than the shampoo and less it looking a little greasy and unclean. I think the formula is too heavy for my hair, even though my hair does get really dry and I needed to wash my hair again the very next day.
All in all, this conditioner is very hydrated and was too heavy for my hair. If you have very dry hair or curly hair then this one may well do the trick but it just left my hair weighed down and greasy. I won't be using this one again!
I was given the shampoo and conditioner from this split remedy range a while ago and have been using them ever since. I don't have my hair cut often so I was happy to receive something that would combat my split ends and any damage to my hair created by dyeing and styling.
This conditioner comes in a classic Tresemme style bottle which is while and made from a flexible plastic. It has a flip lid on top and has green and black design and branding across the front. The shampoo bottle is black and I don't really like that these are two different colours as I think they look really mismatched in the bathroom together. The only thing that ties them together is the green and this is a colour that doesn't really scream hair care to me.
The conditioner is very thick, almost the consistency of a face cream of body moisturiser rather than a conditioner. It doesn't flow or pour in the same way that a traditional conditioner does, but it more like a set mask. This doesn't necessarily bother me but it does make it tricky to get the contents out of the bottle, particularly as you begin to use it all up. The conditioner does feel very thick and rich though and this makes it a really nice conditioning process.
The smell of this product is not distinctively any of thing, it just smells clean and fresh and this is very pleasant. It does leave my hair feeling hydrated, soft and glossy and it always looks very nice once styled. Tresemme products always remind me of going to the hairdressers anyway but using this always makes me feel like I've just had my hair washed as the hair salon. That said, the conditioner claims to reduce spit ends up 80% and repair those already in the hair and this just simply isn't true to my experience of using it.
I've found that I still have split ends after using this and as it retails for £4 I would be reluctant to buy this for myself. It is a nice conditioner but it erks me that they claim it does something it just simply doesn't.
Overall, a nice conditioner but doesn't live up to the claims.
I bought this shampoo and conditioner when I was going on holiday. i thought it would be great to se abroad due to the difference in heat, water and swimming.
I must admit I was dissapointed. My reasons are when I used the conditioner no matter how much you rinse it off, it left a residue on my hair. This was not great as I have greasy hair anyway and made me feel like I needed to wash my hair straight after. I always blow dry and straighten my hair with GHD's after. When I had straightened it, it felt like my hair was burned (like when you straighten your hair, when its not dry). When I got home, I had to put several treatments on my hair and luckily it did improve.
In terms of split ends, no improvement! I do have my hair highlighted every 6 weeks and I expect to have split ends. No improvement and the overall condition of my hair wasnt great. Having a combination of greasy hair buthighlighted regularly I wouldn't recommend this product.
The bottle design is the same to the others in the tresemme range, which I am not keen on either.
A while back I reviewed the Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo, and now I thought I'd review the matching conditioner. I wouldn't normally review both shampoo and conditioner as I don't often feel I have much different to say, but this time there is a point I want to make about the conditioner specifically.
I purchased the shampoo and conditioner together in Boots on a 2 for £4 offer - the individual price was around £3. Having seen them advertised in a magazine I was keen to try both shampoo and conditioner - I do have a lot of split ends, probably because I'm very lazy about getting my hair cut.
The conditioner comes in a white bottle, with a push down flip top which is pretty easy to get into, and I found that even towards the end of the bottle it was easy to squeeze the conditioner out, so there wasn't much wasted by being stuck in the bottle. The conditioner looks and smells very like the shampoo, and with the fairly small writing on the bottle identifying it as conditioner, it's just as well the bottles are different colours or you'd be in danger of mixing them up, especially if you're badly short-sighted like me.
As expected, you're advised to use the conditioner after the Split Remedy Shampoo; in fact I think it also advises you to use the intensive treatment in the same range. The instructions say to smooth the conditioner through your hair from ends to roots, and to leave for two minutes.
The application of the conditioner is where it went wrong for me. My hair is very long and fine, and prone to breakage. I brush it before getting in the shower to avoid tangles while washing, but even so I found that I was pulling out quite a bit of hair while applying the Split Remedy Conditioner. My hair was largely tangle-free, I was applying it gently and was avoiding running my fingers through my hair as far as possible, but still I was getting a worrying amount of hair on my hands. This made me very nervous about using the conditioner, my hair is bad enough without products helping it along.
Once I had got the stuff onto my hair, I curled the length of it over my head and "stuck" it there using the conditioner, to let it do its thing for two minutes. Given the concerning amount of hair it pulled out of my head, the results were less than underwhelming - even after using the whole bottle (along with the shampoo) there was no difference in my split ends. The general condition of my hair once dry was fine, it was soft and manageable, the conditioner didn't deliver on its main promise.
I don't tend to have high expectations of hair products - my experience is that they will let me down. So it was no major surprise that the Tresemme Split Remedy Conditioner had no effect on my split ends. However, I will be avoiding it like the plague in future due to the excessive amount of hair it felt the need to pull out - and it has made me wary of trying other Tresemme products.
