WHAT IS IT
This is shampoo that is made by Tresemme. It is designed to help to repair split ends and I should not ever have bought it because I know that split ends cannot be repaired unless they are cut off and you can prevent them from happening but not repair them if the ends of your hair have already split.
This shampoo comes in a very big 500ml bottle that is too wide to sit on the shelf that is in my shower so I have to keep it outside of the shower and remember that I have to pick it up before I get in to wash my hair. A big bottle like that I think should have a pump on the top but this one does not and is just a normal lid so it is hard sometimes to dispense shampoo without dropping the bottle when your hands are wet.
WHAT I THINK
I bought this only because I had heard so much about it and I wanted to try the shampoo for myself and I thought that even if it did not help with my split ends it would clean my hair. It does not and I wish that I had never bought it because it is not suited for my hair and it even makes my childrens hair very greasy even though their hair is in very good condition and usually any shampoo will make it look and feel clean. My hair was left very limp and greasy when I used this shampoo and I think the split ends looked even worse then because my hair looked like it was such a mess.
It is not pleasing to use because the shampoo has got a texture that is not very nice and feels cold in my hands when I use it, it does not smell nice either and I can not think of one good thing to say about this shampoo because it does not have any good points.
It is hard to rinse out of my hair also because the texture of the shampoo when it has been used to wash your hair is sticky and it grips onto the hair, I think that might be how Tresemme are trying to glue together your split ends but I know about hair and I know that that is not possible.
A bottle of this shampoo costs £4.99 but I would not pay one pound for it because it is bad in everything that it tries to do.

I love this shampoo. I bought a HUGE bottle about 2 months ago, along with the conditioner, and it''s just running out now. I have had problems with split ends for a while after a hair dying incident, so was looking for something that would fix this. I tried masks, expensive oils, vinegar, and many other "home remedies" This actually works. It''s taken 2 months to make a permanent difference, but washing with the shampoo and conditioner together leaves my hair feeling soft and looking clean for up to 3 days, and that''s from the first use. When you have a busy life, 3 days of clean hair is just an absolute miracle. I even tried going off this for a wash just to check that it was really the fault of the Tresemme that my hair was getting healthier. That was a mistake!! I definitely recommend this product. The only downside I can think of is that the conditioner hasn''t got a nice coconut or fruity smell, which in my opinion all conditioners should have. It just smells of soap. But I suppose, if it conditions well, why ask any more of it? The shampoo washes, the conditioner conditions. The price seemed a bit steep to me at first- as I am used to buying knock offs from the local pound store- but if you''re having a problem with split ends, dry hair or dye damage, I strongly advise you splash out a bit (if you will pardon the pun) and give this a go!
I have been having problems with split ends, which I think is because I have been using heated hair products more regularly nowadays, and I have been searching for a solution to battle them. I had tried products from the Tresemme range before which were quite good, I thought. Tresemme has a whole split end defying range which I thought looked quite good and might actually work for me. I thought that it would be a good idea to pick up some of this Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo (as well as the matching conditioner). By the way, I was wrong.
I bought this on a 2 for £6 offer for boots (the original price was £4.99 per bottle so I thought that this was a rather good deal). This made it come to £3 per bottle which is more expensive than many other good shampoos I have used before. But then, this bottle is quite big (it contains 500ml of shampoo in it), it promised salon results and anyway, I really wanted to get my split end problem sorted, and £3 did not seem like it was too grand of a price to pay. If it had worked, I would have called it a bargain, even.
It has a rather classic 'Tresemme' appearance to it, as it looks like a revamped version of some of their other hair products. The black bottle looks sleek and professional, as Tresemme claim to have salon quality hair products for less money, and it does look rather impressive. It is easy to squeeze out the shampoo at first, however I find that, as the bottle contains less and less shampoo it becomes really hard to squeeze out so I have to turn the bottle upside down, wait a few moments, and then squeeze it before I can shampoo my hair. Apply this as you normally would with a normal shampoo, from root to tip.
It is OK for cleaning hair, but I have seen better results from much cheaper shampoos, and my hair does not even feel that refreshed, strong or nourished. As for the split ends, well, this product promises 'up to 80% reduction in split ends after 3 uses'. Well I used this product many many times, much more than just 3 in hope that after a bit I would see results. Well, I didn't. My hair seemed exactly the same with no noticeable effect on my split ends at all which was very disappointing.
In conclusion, I guess that as a shampoo it is OK, but not absolutely brilliant, but they should not have made claims they could not live up to. I can carry on using it as a shampoo so that it is not a waste of money but what a shame it is that it could not deliver what it promised! Maybe if they had not promised so much, my expectations may not have been so high and I would not have been so disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this, at all, if you are searching for a solution for split ends and I would give it 2 out of 5 dooyoo stars.
My hair isn't in the best of conditions and has quite a few split ends. When I seen this Tresemme split remedy shampoo and conditioner in my local Tesco I was a little sceptical about it actually working but bought them anyway to see how well they worked.
This shampoo is quite widely available to purchase from places such as Boots, Superdrug and most supermarkets. The 500ml bottle will cost around the £5 mark and can often be found on offer.
The packaging fits in with the rest of the Tresemme range well with the shampoo bottle being mainly black in colour, this may sound quite boring but it's quite sleek looking with mint green detailing. The lid is located at the top of the bottle and when you push down on one side, the other side pops up and reveals the hole for the shampoo to come from. The packaging boasts that this shampoo reduces upto 80% of split ends.
The shampoo itself is an off white colour and has quite a thick consistency for shampoo, it's one of the thickest I've used. Although it's quite thick it doesn't cause any problems trying to get it out of the bottle and I find it easy to lather into my hair. There isn't any kind of standout fragrances in the smell with it having the same smell as most Tresemme products just smelling clean with a light chemical element. The shampoo lathers very easily and it creates a lot of bubbles on your head. It is easy to rinse out and leaves it feeling clean.
I use this alongside the matching split remedy Tresemme conditioner and I can't say I'm that thrilled with the results. Yes, it does leave my hair looking and feeling clean but I can get them results with cheaper shampoos and conditioners. I bought this due to the claims of reducing split ends but I can't say that my split ends are fully reduced. After drying and styling my hair it does look a little better but the day after using it my hair is back to the split end mess it was in the first place. I've been using this for a few weeks now and despite the continued use of only these products I haven't had any change in the results.
I wouldn't recommend this Tresemme split remedy shampoo purely on the fact that it doesn't do what it says on the packaging and my split ends aren't reduced. To be fair, they are reduced when my hair is freshly washed but give it time and my hair is back to square one again. To get the results that this shampoo gives I might aswell just buy a cheaper brand.
My hair is dry and damaged because I need to blow dry and straighten after each time that I have washed it due to a bad case of the frizz! This leads to a lot of split ends which makes my hair look even frizzier and harder to straighten. I thought it was worth giving the Split Remedy Shampoo by Tresemme a go.
What does the product do?
The shampoo promises to cleanse the hair, removing impurities and hair product, leaving it feeling and looking fresh and clean. It makes the big claims that it will repair split ends by up to 80% after just three washes when paired with the matching conditioner. After the three washes, it will continue to mend and repair the hair to leave it refreshed, revitalised and healthy looking. It promises to help you to give the look and feel of your that you get when you have just left the salon.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in the standard Tresemme black plastic bottle. It has some green detailing on the front to show it is part of the Split Remedy group and you push down on one side of the lid to open the bottle before squeezing it to release the shampoo. I bought the big 500ml bottle of the shampoo 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 shampoo has the same aroma that you typically find in the Tresemme products. It doesn't smell of anything in particular but just has this lovely fresh scent which smells very clean, a little bit like freshly washed clothes. The consistency of the shampoo is the same as the average shampoo. It is easy to dispense from the bottle and the consistency means that it can be worked easily into the hair without having to use too much of the product and without it being too runny. It makes plenty of lather which makes you feel like it's getting your hair nice and clean. Once the job is done, the shampoo is easy to rinse out of the hair.
My hair was easy to brush through before drying so the formula must be hydrating. Once my hair was dry, it felt really soft and was manageable. The frizziness has been reduced and after three uses, my splits ends don't show up as much. I don't think they've actually mended though. I think the formula more glues the ends together. Despite this, my hair is still easy to brush and it has a bit of a shine to it. I do find that the formula of the shampoo has left my hair a little weighed down which isn't very good as I like body and movement in my hair. My hair can be left a little greasy after using the product and it is a push to be able to go the full 48 hours that I normally would before I wash my hair again. The aroma of the shampoo stays on the hair for a little while after use so it does smell really fresh and clean, even if it doesn't look it!
All in all, the shampoo does reduce the appearance of my split ends so it leaves my hair looking sleeker and less frizzy. It does also weigh down the hair and makes it greasier quicker than the average shampoo. I think this would work well on the hair of those who have curly hair or very dry, course hair but I wasn't impressed so I won't be repurchasing this one again.
I don't get my hair cut very often so when I received some of this Tresemme split remedy shampoo I was pretty excited to try it out and see whether it could remedy my split ends.
It looks as though you can get it for around £4 a bottle, the bottles are pretty large but that is still quite a high price for a shampoo. I was glad to have tried it for free because I'm not sure I would have ever ended up trying it at that price.
The bottle looks like a classic tresemme style bottle, large black plastic bottle with a little flip lid on top. There is white and green detailing on the outside of the bottle which doesn't immediately scream hair care to me. I don't really love the black bottle either because it doesn't look especially nice in my bathroom, but I guess it will do.
The shampoo claims to reduce and repair up to 80% of split ends, which is quite some claim. The shampoo does feel very thick and rich, it is almost pearlescent or shimmery and has a very thick consistency. I found this makes it a little tricky to get out the bottle but otherwise the shampoo feels very nice.
It also smells very fresh and clean and leaves my hair smelling the same way. It is easy to work into the hair, though you do have to have quite wet hair to get it to lather. I found once it got going it was pretty good and created a lot of bubbles. It felt nice to rub into my hair, smelled good and felt very rich.
It was also quite easy to wash out, though it is thick so you have to make sure you complete wet your hair again. My hair felt very soft after used, and once dried was glossy and shiny. It definitely improved the feel of my hair and made is feel hydrated and revitalised, almost like having gone to the hairdressers.
I used this shampoo for months before realising that it was doing very little to actually combat split ends. Though my hair felt very nice and always looked shiny and soft the claim to reduce split ends was rubbish. Ordinarily I would put it down to not using it for long enough but a couple of months should realistically do the trick and it didn't.
Overall, this is a nice shampoo but it does little to remedy split ends.
I have medium-long curly hair which easily gets tangled and as it grows longer is starting to get a few split ends. I tend to wash it most days, just quickly, as washing keeps the curls in place, otherwise on a second day after washing my hair starts to become rather frizzy, therefore I bought the Tresemme "split ends" shampoo to hopefully help combat my split ends problem.
I need a fairly gentle shampoo because I wash my hair often, so it's not really super dirty in the sense of being greasy or covered in hairspray etc, as I only use a bit of curl definer.
I have been using Tresemme on and off for years - it's one of about 5 brands I buy, depending on what's in the shop and what's on offer. My mother first recommended it to me and it was her hairdresser who recommended it to her, it was also the brand that the salon was using. I believe Tresemme was originally more of a "salon" brand and has, over time come into the mainstream hair product market.
This shampoo smells to me very much like "salon" shampoo , in fact it reminds me of going to the hairdressers when I use it. It's a sort of strong floral smell, which is quite pleasant and anyway I can hardly smell it on my hair when it's dried. The shampoo is quite thick and when I squeeze it out of the flip nozzle it stays in the palm of my hand rather than escaping through my fingers. It's a clear shampoo and is easy to apply - I rub both my hands together and then apply it to my hair, mainly washing the top on my head where it gets a bit greasy and then just gently washing the ends afterwards. I guess I use a blob around the size of a doomed £2 coin every time I wash my hair so a bottle lasts a long time.
The Tresemme brand bottles are all quite simple in design, either black for shampoo or white in colour for conditioner. There is hardly any unnecessary ornamentation on the bottle, just the brand name, what it is, what it does and the ingredients and directions on the back. The bottles are a very strong plastic and keep their shape nicely.
I usually get my Tresemme from Waitrose, but can get it in most of the main supermarkets or chemists. It costs around £3.50 so at first it seems a little more expensive, however the bottle is huge, it's 500ml and lasts me months so it works out to be very good value. When I bought this a few weeks ago Tresemme was on a 3 for 2 offer at Waitrose, so I bought 2 shampoos and 1 conditioner.
As far as washing goes my hair feels clean after using this shampoo. It also looks quite shiny, however I don't think it does anything to help split ends, it doesn't seem to work in this sense any better or worse than the other Tresemme shampoos which aren't claiming they help split ends. I'm going to give it a 3 as I wouldn't buy this particular version again, I would stick to one of the other versions, probably the vitamin C deep cleaning as that one works well for me.
I never seem to have the spare money to get my hair cut and styled very often so do seem to end up with quite a few split ends although my hairdresser always tells me they are not bad for the length of time I go between cuts.
I decided to have a try of the Tresemme Split ends range when I saw it in Boots and bought a bottle of it on an offer of 3 for £10, the range is usually £3.99 per bottle although they are pretty big bottles in comparison to other brands.
The bottle is black in colour and has mint green detailing on it which I think is nice as the mint green stands out really nicely on the black. The shampoo is supposed to "repairs up to 80% of split ends for a fresh cut look and feel everyday."
The shampoo is easy to get out of the bottle and the top of the bottle has one of those openings where you apply pressure on one side and the opposite side pops up. The shampoo smells fresh and clean and slightly fruity in my opinion, it has the same smell as all the Tresemme range.
I found that the shampoo lathered up easily on my hair as long as it is completely wet, the lather feels quite smooth to me. The shampoo rinses out of my hair easily and I followed it with the matching conditioner as I always do.
After drying my hair felt nice and soft to the touch and on moving my head from side to side I felt my hair was left quite lightweight which is great as my hair is pretty thick and heavy. My hair was manageable after using the products and I didn't find that my hair tangled later either which is good as some shampoos leave my hair feeling good but then I find it tangles easily later on.
The shampoo I felt was really nice although I did use the shampoo and conditioner together so I cannot say which of the products left my hair feeling the way it did. I would have to say that this shampoo is no different to the normal Tresemme shampoo as I didn't feel it did anything for my split ends however it does remain the question for me of how could a shampoo possibly fix split ends. On the other hand of course the shampoo may prevent more split ends from developing but I can't say if this is or isn't the case.
This is a lovely shampoo just the same as others in the range but as it is split end therapy shampoo specifically I would have to only give it 3 stars.
The Split End Remedy range was very well publicised when it was launched, and having seen the adverts thought that it would be just what I needed for my long hair which I was growing to just generally keep it in that fresh cut phase for longer. I had previously used standard Tresemme products, and have not been very impressed by them but I thought I'd stay open minded and give it a go- Especially as I bought them on special offer. I used the shampoo, conditioner, masque and serum (not all at the same time though obviously!).
The shampoo I would say is fairly standard- Big bottle, so as with all Tresemme you get a lot of product for your money. The downside of this though is that if you don't like it you're stuck with it for ages! It is white, smells ok and lathers well. I also found it cleans well, but when used with the conditioner does have a tendency to make hair feel heavy, lank, stiff and get greasier quicker. I also don't think this range is very nourishing. I'm not sure how the mechanism of fixing split ends works with this product, but it left my hair feeling quite dry and by the end of using this shampoo I just wanted to go back to my moisturising hair products. I also didn't notice any huge improvement in my split ends, which is such a shame given the hype.
In all, I'd say that these sorts of products obviously work differently on different people. However, if you're wanting to try this range and are weighing up your options, I'd say give the shampoo a miss as it doesn't seem to do much more than any standard shampoo and you would be better off trying the masque or serum (despite the fact I didn't particularly like any of them!).
A few months ago I saw an advert in a magazine for a variety of Tresemme called Split Remedy, designed to repair split ends. As my hair is prone to split ends, particularly because I am quite lax at getting it trimmed, I thought this might be quite a good purchase. I've never actually used any Tresemme products before, I had the impression they were quite good.
The Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo comes in a black bottle. I bought it along with the matching conditioner on offer in Boots for 2 for £4 - I think the price per bottle was somewhere around £3.
The shampoo is easy to get out of the bottle, even when there is not much left, which means you can get your full moneys worth out of the bottle. It opens with a flip top which you push in, so there's no messing about with lids. The shampoo itself is a fairly standard white, and the fragrance could be just about any shampoo with an indistinct scent - it simply smells clean and soapy.
I found that the shampoo lathered up very easily, and was easy to massage through my hair. It rinsed out easily, and didn't require any extra attention or time under the shower. Once it was rinsed out, my hair felt pleasantly clean. However one problem was that it seemed to cause more hair to come loose in my hands than normal - this is something I have a problem with generally, as my hair is so fine and breakable, but there was definitely more breaking when using the Tresemme shampoo. Obviously, with such fine hair, I'd rather lose as little as possible, so this did not endear me to the Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo.
I used this in conjunction with the Split Remedy Conditioner, so the effects when dry were from the combined use of shampoo and conditioner. I found that my hair was soft and manageable, but even once the bottle was finished I could see no improvement on my split ends whatsoever - this is from using the shampoo and conditioner at least every two days.
I'm not terribly fussy about my shampoo, but I did feel let down by the Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo. Not only did it somehow cause more hair breakage when I was using it, but it didn't even do the slightest bit of repair to my split ends. I generally expect shampoos and hair products not to deliver on their promises, but I was hopeful that this one would. Its failure, and the problem of hair breakage, means that I definitely won't be buying it again, and am unlikely to try any other varieties of Tresemme.
