I purchased this product from a local supermarket, and was pleased that it was on special offer. I felt like my hair needed some extra tlc and thought that this product would be good for me. I have naturally very straight, thick hair. I regularly apply hair dye and the overall feel and look of my hair was dull, thick and heavy. I felt i needed something to brighten up my hair and help bring it back to life. The product mentions that it helps "remove the build up and heavy residues the diminish hairs shine" It also promise that the shampoo would leave your hair feeling fresh from the salon with a healthy looking shine. It also mentions that you are able to use the product regularly. Well upon opening the bottle i noticed it had a pleasent, fresh scent that wasn''t too overpowering. The solution which came out of the bottle was clear and didn''t feel to thick or sticky. Upon application to my hair i found it lathered rather well. After rinsing the shampoo out of my hair i came to notice tha it did in fact feel cleaner and as if the impurities had been removed. I could also make my hair squeak by running my fingers tightly down a clump of hair. My hair did still feel a bit heavy (yes i know wet hair does, but this felt like it was sticking heavily to my head) I also noticed that my hair didnt feel soft (sometimes even when hair is wet after washing it can feel soft) Anyways i towel dried my hair and got on with my daily chores. When my hair was fully dry i noticed that it felt very thin, and when running my fingers through my hair it got very static. My air kept sticking to my face and still felt heavy. It did not have a shine to it. It still looked dull. Even worse was that it looked very greasy!! My hair had no volume to it at all! I gave this shampoo several chances. Each time after washing with this product my hair was static, greasy, heavy and dull. I also noticed that it had started stripping my hair colour. My hair colour was going from dark brown to a reddish blonde! I would not buy this product again, even though it is in my price range. You do get a lot of product for the price and it may work for some. Unfortunately it just does not work for me. I would not recommend anyone using this product if they have applied a hair colourant as it will strip the colour out.
I started using this shampoo after it was recommended to me by a hairdresser, because of the quality for a good price. I usually buy this for £2.99 in the supermarket and because the bottles tend to be bigger, it lasts longer. The shampoo itself is lovely, the fragrance is lovely, without being harsh. I wash my hair every couple of days, which is perfect with this shampoo. The deep cleansing means my hair looks fresh and revitalised for longer, which means I don't have to wash my hair to often and damage the good oils in my hair by over-washing. I only need to use a small amount of the shampoo, because I have short hair, but you don't need much of this for it to be effective. I would recommend this to anyone, particularly to people on a budget or with a family, simply because of how long it lasts. Very good value and great quality.
Tresemme has been one of my favourite brands of hair care products for quite a few years now but I have to say that I am very disappointed with this shampoo. It is one of the worst shampoo's that I have used to be honest!
I paid £3.59 for my 500ml bottle of it which is more than I would usually pay for a shampoo but I felt like treating my self to a bit of a more luxurious shampoo. It isn't luxurious though and although I will obviously be using the bottle up, once I've used it all I will never be re-purchasing it. The shampoo comes in a nicely designed rounded bottle which is a little on the bulky side but not too much so. It is basic but eye catching and it looks quite sleek and expensive, in my opinion.
The bottle has a paragraph written on the back of it which has information about what the product does and I like the packaging design. The bottle doesn't have the usual screw top or flip top lid that most shampoo bottles have, instead you just press down on the top of it and it will flip up so the dispenser hole is exposed and once you've got the product out you just press it back down again. The bottle is sturdy but still not too hard to squeeze which is good- I hate shampoo/conditioner bottles which aren't easy to squeeze.
The shampoo itself has a very thick and gloopy texture and I find that I need a huge amount of it to completely cover my hair, which is currently just above shoulder length and not particularly thick. The shampoo lathers up easily but needs really working into the scalp and hair for good coverage. When washing it out of my hair, I find that unless I rinse it out several times my hair is left slightly greasy.
Once it is washed out my hair feels strange, even whilst still wet - it has a strange stiff feeling and it doesn't feel particularly clean. The shampoo also fails to make my hair feel smooth, which even the most very basic shampoos provide. The shampoo smells quite nice - its a fresh smell, but after using my conditioner the smell is obviously not very noticeable in my hair as the smell from my conditioner masks it.
Once my hair is dry it feels very dried out and hard to comb through after I have used this shampoo. I also hada horrible experience the other day - I had to be out early in the morning as I had an appointment so I washed my hair the night before with this and my good quality conditioner, then rinsed it and blow dried it.
The next day my hair smelt strange and looked quite greasy, which I think was down to this shampoo. I definitely don't recommend this shampoo and I give it just one out of five stars.
Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo
I have been using Tresemme products for a while now and I have found that although their products are not quite as good as some true saloon shampoos and conditioners that I have tried, they are far better than a lot of other shampoo brands available on the supermarket shelves.
Personally, I always seem to have a bit of a temperamental scalp and certain shampoos can really irritate my skin and not completely clean my hair, more often than not certain supermarket brand shampoos and conditioners don't agree with me, or I can only use them for a short period of time before I need to switch on to something else. However, with the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo I have found that I can use it repeatedly for weeks at a time without any signs of an irritated scalp. In fact, apart from Lush's own brand of shampoos the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo is a default shampoo purchase in our household.
The shampoo itself has a reasonably thick, clear and an almost gel like texture and appearance about it. I have found that you don't need to use much of the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo to get a good and substantial lather, even for slightly longer hair. Unlike some of my favourite shampoos the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo doesn't have too much of an overly heavy fragrance about it. However, it does have a light clean and slightly fruity scent that is pleasant. It is also a pretty unisex smell and with the unisex packaging this is a shampoo that doesn't only have me reaching for it, but also my husband too.
After I have used the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo I do find that my hair is left feeling clean, soft and generally in great condition. I have quite easy going hair, but I do think that the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo is not overly harsh so would suit quite a lot of people and not just someone looking for a deep cleansing. In fact I do think that the name of the shampoo is a little misleading because personally I would expect a deep cleansing shampoo to be something that you might use infrequently and when I have the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo in the the bathroom I more or less use it on a daily basis.
Personally, I do tend to buy the larger bottles because I like the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo and I prefer having the 900 ml bottles in the bathroom because they do last us for quite a while. However, if you want to try this without investing in such a large bottle it is available in smaller quantities. The packaging for Tresemme is simple but stylish and the bottle comes in the trademark black bottle with green highlights to signal that this is the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo and not any other variety.
I recently stocked up on quite a few Tresemme products in a recent four for £10 special offer at Asda's, but the individual bottles of Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo usually retails for around £3. Definitely not hair saloon prices but then I'm not convinced its a rival for saloon products.
This shampoo gets a four out of five stars from me. I tend to go back and buy the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo time after time, it leaves my hair in great condition and it won't break the bank or at least the monthly bathroom shopping budget.
If you haven't tried the Tresemme vitamin C deep cleansing shampoo then I really do recommend it.
==TRESemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo==
If you're the type of person who uses hair products, you will know that overtime your hair will become dull & lifeless, due to you not thoroughly washing out those products. Even if its just styling products like Hair Mousse, Hairspray, Hair Gel, Wax, Gel Spray, Sraightening / Curling Cream & Heat Defence Spray. This type of dull hair due to product built up requires a shampoo that is thoroughly cleansing, a type of shampoo that after washing leaves your hair feeling squeaky! I was like this at one time, & as I swim, currently twice a week, chlorine does nothing for hair either, apart from leaving it dry & dirty feeling. Whilst out shopping, in ASDA I spied TRESemme's Deep Cleansing Shampoo, & I thought that this might do considering it was for all hair types!
TRESemme is a hair care brand that we all know of, they produce everything from Hairdryers to Styling Products, so they have everything you could possibly want for hair. Only recently were they purchased by Unilever who produces the Shampoo / Conditioner & Styling Products side of it, whilst BaByliss (or Conair Group Ltd) produces the electrical side of it. TRESemme advertise themself as having professional products at supermarket prices. The Deep Cleansing Shampoo is part of the Cleanse & Replenish Range which includes this shampoo, C&R Remoisturise Conditioner & C&R 2in1 Shampoo / Conditioner. The prices for this shampoo are the usual TRESemme price, £4.69 for a 900ml in TESCO & £3.58 for a 500ml, also in TESCO. ASDA currently have 900ml bottles for £2 & I bought my 500ml bottle of Deep Cleansing from ASDA, which was £3.48, normal price. Savers have 900ml TRESemme for £2.69, also normal price, which is great value for a product like this.
TRESemme bottles are easy to recognise, their tall, fat & circular bottles sit amongst other shampoos & conditioners in many stores. The bottles are distinguishable black colour & look very professional, almost too posh to have on the side of the bath. Shampoo bottles are black with white writing & Conditioner bottles are white with black writing, so no mix ups where you accidentally apply Conditioner before Shampoo! TRESemme state that Deep Cleansing shampoo clarifies hair to remove build up & restores your hairs natural vitality. Further more they say that the formulation is gentle enough for daily use & contains Vitamin C, even though I have no idea what its for!
Unlike most shampoos which are creams, this shampoo is a thick blue gel, which if you're not careful can be sucked back in to the bottle! You only need a little bit to massage into wet hair & this little bit produces lots of lather that has a lovely salon scent! I normally wash my hair twice & the second wash tends to produce more bubbles than the first time. After you have left on for a few minutes as stated, I start to rinse & it only takes a minute of so before all of the shampoo has rinsed out of my hair. Hair has a squeaky feel that can only be described as using very cheap soap on skin! The squeaky effect dosent last long, but it certainly leaves your hair feeling very clean, perfect for when you've accidentally over done it with the dry shampoo! You certainly need a good conditioner with this product, as otherwise your hair will feel like straw when dry! This has a plus point though, it shows what hair conditioners do what they say, so its fun to use!
The only trouble is though, that overtime this shampoo will make a few strands of hair dry & brittle, but this hasent prevented me from using it, as it really does provide a deep clean when either after applying too many styling products, overdoing with the dry shampoo, or removing chlorine from hair. This Shampoo might not be for everybody, but for a lot of people this shampoo might be the perfect answer, for either the reasons above, or it might be cheaper than your usual shampoo. So I say, go ahead, you might be surprised!
Shampoo is another item if its on offer and I haven't tried it in a while I will throw in it the basket. This time though i was looking for a shampoo that could be used daily without doing any damage to your hair. I wash mine 2/3 times a week as I have very think hair, whereas my son has thinner hair and likes to wash/style every day. When I started looking online for ideas of what to use Tresemme seemed to have good results. I looked at the comparision sites for shopping as the price can vary from £2.00 - £4.99. Luckily for me that week it was £2 in Asda.
Tresemme has been going since 1947 and were only available in salons. Since then most supermarkets sell this very popular brand. There aim is to bring the salon to your home.
Its a large 900ml black bottle, if you are looking on the shampoo shelf you cant miss it purely for the design and size of the bottle. The bottle design is very simple, all in black and has the words Tresemme written in white across the top. At the bottom of the label it says deep cleansing shampoo vitamin c.
When I used it straight away I could smell grapefruits and lemons very refreshing. The shampoo is clear and quick think which surprised me, I expected it to be a bit thinner.
Directions on how to use -
To get squeaky clean benefits, coat wet hair with a liberal amount of shampoo.
Gently massage the scalp and roots with fingertips to work into a lather. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to scrub and scrub to get hair dirt-free (that motion only roughs up the texture and causes breakage and tangling).
Lightly squeeze the shampoo from roots to ends. Our salon stylists suggest to rinse thoroughly (most people don't rinse long enough).
I found it lathered really quickly and didn't take long to rinse off. I also used the conditioner for this product at the same time.
My hair feels very soft and silky at the moment, would definitely stock up when on offer.
I had been using another Tresseme shampoo for a while and changed to this one as I started to use more products on my hair, and needed something good! First off, the price tag is always slightly shocking when in some places its nearly £5 for a bottle of shampoo! I usually buy mine in Savers or Wilko as they usually have it on offer for £2.39. If you can find this on a good offer, then I would recommend it!
Obviously its best to use conditioner of the same version with the shampoo to get the best results.
The shampoo comes out as a blue green gel, and not a rich cream like some of the others, which did make me wonder how good it was going to feel after I had used it as I have always preferred a creamy shampoo as I used to have really dry hair when it was long. It smells fairly pleasant, nothing out of the ordinary, very fresh. You also don't need to use too much of the product as it goes quite far!
On application it foams up really well, and gives you a very clean feeling to your hair, so much so that my hair was actually squeaky clean! I had been using Got2B Powderful volumising powder, pantene for layers hairspray and a little salt spray, and it removed it all out of my hair, fantastic.
One word of warning though, do not use this if you have semi permanent hair dye in, as this will also remove colour with prolonged use. I used this to get rid of some left over blue hair dye I had in. I also wouldn't recommend it if you have fairly frail hair, as I don't think it would give you the nourishment that your hair would need.
After washing with this shampoo and using the conditioner, it left my hair feeling fresh, lightweight, and clean, I would highly recommend it!
I recently switched to using this shampoo as I like to chop and change between different types, so generally I buy a different brand each time the bottle I'm using runs out. So far, I am pleased with the effect that this has had on my hair. It has left it soft and easy to manage, and as promised on the label, it feels and looks clean. This is particularly in combination with the Tresemme conditioner that I also used.
Some particular positives of this product are that, due to the size of the bottle, it lasts a relatively long time. This makes up for the more expensive price attached to it. As a well known brand, Tresemme can get away with charging fairly high prices; I would recommend looking out for special offers on their products rather than buying it full price. The product comes in a number of different sizes, from a very small travel size to a 900ml litre bottle.
The shampoo lathers easily and I found I didn't need very much of it at all. I have short hair and so obviously it won't last as long for consumers with longer hair but I won't need to replace it as quickly as with some cheaper brands of shampoo. It washes out easily without leaving shampoo residue. It is also easy to apply; the bottle is designed in a way which makes the shampoo easy to dispense but unlikely to spill when not in use.
The one criticism I have, aside from the high price, is that the smell is quite chemical. While it left my hair feeling and smelling clean, I prefer shampoos which have some sort of fruity aroma to them which this product lacked. The smell was not unpleasant but it certainly wasn't as nice as many other products on the market.
Despite this I would recommend the product as it does the job well.
===Why I Bought This===
Well I have never bothered much with hair conditioner and shampoos over the years but with my hair now showing signs of my age I thought that I needed to try and give it a little bit more tender loving care so am trying out various different shampoos and conditioners to see if I can give my fast greying locks a bit if a boost. Luckily this one ended up in our bathroom thanks to son and his girfriend.

£4.69 for 900 mls.
This shampoo comes in a professional looking black botle. The shampoo is very thick and almost gel-like - being transparent blue and quite a delicate colour. The smell is refreshing and almost ozone like - from the ingredients it must have more fruity elements as it contains lemon and grapefruit extracts. Anyway the smell is quite pleasant and does linger on your hair.
I have short hair so do not need to use a lot of this shampoo at a time - so 900 mls will last me absolutely ages. I used very little at a time as the shampoo lathers up well adn quickly to give a creamy lather. It rinses out quite well and after putting on conditioner then I usually leave my hair to dry naturally.
Having been quite sceptical about other shampoos and conditioners I found that this one does leave my hair nice and soft and also sort of bouncy - which is a bonus as my hair is straight and thin and this bounciness came all on its own.
I am lucky having younger people in the house so I am able to try various products that they buy for themselves. This was one such product, which I probably would not have thought to buy for myself, but I have been suitable impressed with it so I think I will continue to buy and use it for myself. Previously I would mostly be using wither Tesco or Aovn products.
In my younger days I never bothered what shampoo and conditioner I used but now being more mature these mosturising shampoos and conditioners are definitely something I need.
===Would I Recommend?===
Tresemme boasts salon quality at affordable prices and has been used at hairdressers' basins and in domestic showers for decades but just how effective is Tresemme's Deep Cleaning Shampoo on my hair?
A bit about Tresemme
Tresemme produces a plethora of haircare products which were first manufactured by Godefroy Manufacturing Company in St Louis, Missouri in 1947.
The brand name is a word play and reference to Edna L. Emme who was a leader and national spokesperson for the professional hair care industry during the 40s.
The brand was purchased by Alberto-Culver in 1968, who were subsequently taken over by Unilever in 2011.
The product line was initially marketed only to salons but in recent years became available to the general public in shops.
Tresemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo - The packaging
Tresemme products come in plain packaging with very simple labelling which you tend to associate with the kinds of products you see on salon shelves. Tresemme has evidently made the decision to stay true to their salon roots and their stark packaging actually helps their products stand out on the shelves in contrast to their competitors.
The bottles are either all white or black with no pictures to illustrate the product or elaborate lettering. They come with a simple label consisting of the Tresemme logo and text describing the contents of the bottle. The only differentiating detail between the different bottles is a coloured label.
For example the deep cleaning shampoo comes with a green background square to the text making it easier for the consumer to find their chosen shampoo or conditioner on the shelf but the differences are small it will take a little perusal to make sure you are picking up the right one.
The bottle is cylinder shaped with a cap on the top which clicks up and down for open and closed and that is it. Simplicity is the key here. The shampoo comes in 500ml bottles or much larger 900ml, salon size bottles.
Tresemme Deep Cleaning Shampoo - the product.
The shampoo itself is a transparent green in colour a bit like watered down washing up liquid.
It is relatively thin and runny and is a gel rather than a cream in texture.
The fragrance is generic. It reminds me of the smell that hits you when you enter leisure centre and gym showers. That smell of a number of different shower gels and shampoos all mixed together. The smell is not offensive in any way but at the same time does not stand out as particularly exciting. You wouldn't buy this product for the smell alone. To decently lather up the hair I would suggest using a 50 pence piece sized amount.
What first strikes me when I apply this shampoo to my hair is it is very difficult to massage all over the scalp and through the length of the hair. The shampoo makes my hair quite matted on contact and as a result I was unable to fully rub it in and ended up having to settle with slathering on top of my head.
My hair felt quite shining to the touch after rinsing the shampoo off but was still quite knotted and not silky smooth. I have heard of shampoos that leave a coating of a silicone-type product on the hair which gives it that synthetically smooth finish and I think this is one of them.
Once I had towel-dried my hair it was actually quite easy to run a brush through the hair so that matted feeling had dissipated.
When it came to drying my hair some shampoos make styling the hair much easier but this unfortunately was not one. I found I had to settle for just drying the hair off and then using my hair straighteners to style it into shape, which is not my preferred method.
My hair itself was left slightly darker blonde than usual as though some residue had been left behind but was quite nicely smoothed down. It did look shiny but in a heavy way rather than a light fresh way. It seemed dragged down by product.
After a few more washes I was still happy with the overall effect and my style seemed to last quite well throughout the day and did not become fly away or static after being out in the wind.
But what I did notice after just a week of use was the ends of my hair were very dry to the point I feared split ends could be about to form.
I persevered with the shampoo until the 900ml bottle had run out purely because I wanted this product to work for me. Tresemme products are very good value for money. The huge 900ml bottles are £4 and have been on offer in Tesco for £2. There is the added incentive that this product was used in salons and so surely is a better product than some of the shampoos available for a similar price.
However, after using the whole bottle I could not buy the same shampoo again. My hair had become very dried out and the ends were in need of a good trim. My hairdresser even pointed out my ends were quite dry and gave me the usual lecture about over straightening my hair etc. but I knew it was a result of the Tresemme shampoo.
This was compounded recently when I couldn't resist a 900ml bottle of the shampoo on offer in Tesco. I bought it hoping perhaps my dry hair had not after all been a result of the shampoo but again after using it for a week my hair felt incredibly unhealthy at the tips.
I had to discontinue use.
Tresemme products are incredibly good value for money if they suit your hair. Unfortunately the shampoo I tried was simply not compatible with my tresses. Perhaps it could have been worth me trying a different shampoo in the range as the deep nourishing version is obviously so deep nourishing it gets right into the hair shaft and dries it out. However, my experience has put me off the brand to be honest and I can't help wondering if the reason you can buy Tresemme in shops now is because it was found not to be good enough for salons.
My hair is what I would consider fairly normal, it does not get particularly greasy but does need a wash every day, I was introduced to Tresemme Vitamin C Deep Cleansing Shampoo by my mum who heard about it from her hairdresser recommending it for greasy hair. My mum raved on about this miracle shampoo to me on the phone, her hair gets greasy and flat very quickly normally after using this shampoo her hair looked clean and healthy all day long. So I had to give this miracle shampoo a go.
I bought a 500ml bottle from Savers in a pack deal with a tresemme dry shampoo for about £2.99, I was already impressed by the price though it did make me slightly sceptical if it was actually going to be as good as I had been told.
The shampoo comes in a tall, round black bottle, with a green band on detailing the specific shampoo (Deep Cleansing - For all hair types). The shampoo come in two sizes 500ml and 945ml, but I personally find the larger bottle is quite difficult to use while in the shower as its quite heavy and slips out of your hands while trying to push the cap open and squeeze out the liquid. The shampoo is clear with a blue tint to it.
The deep cleansing shampoo foams up easily, for my hair long thick hair I only need a blob about the size of a 2p. The first thing I noticed when I washed my hair with this was how you could really feel the change, my hair actually felt squeaky clean, like it had taken all the oils, products and rubbish out of my hair, but it did feel a bit dried out. I followed with Charles Worthington Balancing act conditioner which made my hair feel fully moisturised and replenished. After drying and styling my hair it was so shiny and healthy looking, I even had a compliment on how healthy it was looking and after a full day it wasn't even slightly greasy, even the next morning it was still really clean and shiny.
I've now been using Tresemme Vitamin C Deep Cleansing Shampoo for a week or two now and it has definitely become my new favourite shampoo, will be buying the conditioner for it is well next time I see it This Tresemme is an absolute winner, I recommend this to everyone it eliminates all the dull and drab and gives you lush shiny, healthy hair that will stay clean all day! Go on, give it a go! You won't go back. =)
As my previous reviews will demonstrate, I love to try and achieve bouncy and full hair and often find that many products that promise to deliver this only prove to weigh down my hair. Tresemme is a brand that you can often see on adverts promising to achieve professional looking results, and so when I saw a large 900ml bottle of this shampoo on sale in my local pharmacy I decided to give it a go.
This shampoo is packaged in a black plastic bottle which is standard of the majority of Tresemme shampoos available. The black bottle is illustrated with the white Tresemme stamp and a small amount of green text the most obvious of which being the vertical green text up the side of the bottle in capital letters which reads 'Deep Cleansing'. The bottle is topped with a black snap back lid for easy pouring.
The bottle promises many things in the text, this being the reason I bought the shampoo and these include it being 'deep cleansing for all hair types', 'removes build up and pollution' and is a 'professional formula'. The inclusion of Vitamin C in the ingredients intrigued me, I mean they say you should eat plenty of the stuff but what can it do for your hair? Apparently vitamin C removes the build up of styling products and revitalises the hair, or so Tresemme claim.
The bottle comes in two sizes and these are a 500ml or a 900ml option, the later being a very large bottle which is quite cumbersome on the side of any standard bath.
The Shampoo ~
Upon clicking open the lid the shampoo pours out of the bottle very easily. The shampoo is very light in consistency and does not have any creaminess like other restorative shampoos but instead feels slightly like a gel. The shampoo is a light blue in colour and lathers up very easily in water. It smells very light and fresh being slightly citrus in fragrance and leaves a scent that lasts for a good day after washing.
A 500ml bottle of this shampoo can usually be purchased in the region of £3-£4 and Tesco currently stock it for £3.20, however it is easy to find this shampoo for cheaper in some convenience stores and I bought my 900ml bottle for £1.99.
In Use ~
Like all other shampoo on the market, this shampoo should be applied to wet hair. It is usually good to pour a small amount into your hand and massage thoroughly into the scalp and ends of the hair and then rinsed. I usually find that a little goes a long way. For maximum cleansing the process can be repeated before conditioning.
I am generally quite critical of shampoos, being that my exacting standards are not often met. However this shampoo was different. My hair felt soft and shiny after just one application and I found that by using this shampoo regularly my hair felt bouncy and fresh after blow drying. In addition, when I repeated shampooing as aprt of my routine I found that my hair felt thicker and less greasy for a good amount of time usually 2-3 days and therefore I needed to wash it less.
I have a couple of criticisms of this shampoo, and these revolve around the packaging. Firstly the shampoo being a gel like consistency always dries around the lid of the bottle leaving a light blue film which makes the lid harder to click open. This happens despite religiously closing the lid every time after use. Additionally, the size of the bottle was a bit of an issue. As mentioned earlier, the large bottle had the tendency not to balance at the side of the bath and was easy to knock over. In addition, such a large bottle meant that I couldn't take my shampoo on holiday with me (flying with Ryan Air meant such a small luggage allowance) and therefore had to buy a smaller bottle.
Overall however, despite criticisms of the bottle, this is a great shampoo which delivers the results promised and I have hence scored it 5 stars for being able to lift my rebellious locks.
Thank-you for taking the time to read my review.
This review is also posted on Ciao under the same user name.
My hair gets greasy really really quickly, as a keen participant of sport of which i work up a sweat and then having to ride a motorcycle where my head is stuck in a really warm helmet for prolonged periods of time means that quite quickly, sometimes over the course of less than a day my hair can get quite obviously lookingly greasy, not a great look! That's one of the reasons i tried tresemme in the first place, also partially because my mum had some so i stole it from her bathroom.
At first it's obvious to see that tresemme comes in quite a sizable bottle which i think is pretty good because one you don't have to go shopping for shampoo so regularly, two you don't knock it over so easily and accidentally and last of all you get much better value for money compared to the much smaller bottles that a lot of companies sell. At first when you squeeze it out it has quite a nice light colored gel with a nice fragrance that i cant quite pin point although i do think it is very nice. After just one wash i could tell noticeable difference with my hair, it was much shinier and felt a lot softer than if i had washed it with other shampoos. I also find with tresemme i can go several days without washing my hair and it doesn't look as bad as previously where i couldn't have gone more than a day without washing. I really do think it lives up to it's salon quality name.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that struggles with greasy hair or just in general was looking to change there shampoo provider to someone a little bit better.
Good value for money
My sister bought back these Tresemme deep cleansing shampoos with vitamin C (I think because it was on sale and was quite cheap- 3 for 2 at Morrisons?) and since the one I normally used ran out, I decided to try it to see what all the fuss is about.
So the shampoo is stored in this large, round black plastic container because it had a whole 900ml of shampoo in it. Why they didn't just make it 1l is anyone's guess, but it is taking up a lot of storage space in the bathroom. The opening and dispensing mechanism on the bottle is also a little annoying. From the extrusion of the bottle neck, there is a flap in which you press to eject the nozzle in which the shampoo will come out. I personally do not like this, and would just prefer a lid of some sort.
Anyway, the shampoo is transparent and has a light blue-ish colour to it but isn't very thick and is of the gel type. Upon applying it to your hair, it lathers up really easily and thickly so you really don't need that much shampoo. It feels quite soothing to the scalp whilst you're using it, and after rinsing leaves it quite soft and clean.
The results are that it does leave it clean, but whether it is a "deep cleanse" is irrelevant. The Vitamin C enrichment of this shampoo doesn't seem to do anything- I have not noticed any difference. What I do notice is that my scalp is still a bit itchy after using this product and I would expect ANY shampoo to not have that at all. I will put this product down as one of those that use misleading and disingenuous flowery language.
Overall, I will not continue to use this product maybe it is unsuitable to my hair type or scalp or whatever, but I will be sticking to the Loreal one that I have been using and has been good forever!
Having seen the TV adverts promising salon quality products, when I saw this product on offer for any two 900ml bottles of tresemme products for £5 I snapped them up. I have looked at them previously but at nearly £5 for just one bottle I've always wondered whether or not they were actually worth spending that much.
The shampoo I picked up was of the Vitamin C, Deep Cleansing variety and is hard to miss due to the sheer size of the bottle with the Tresemme branding clearly emblazoned in bold white letters across the front. The only down sides I found to the size of the bottle was actually handling it whilst in the shower with wet hands as it is smoothed sided and weighs quite a bit when full. The other was getting the very last dregs of shampoo from the bottom of such a large bottle.
The shampoo itself is fairly thick and dosen't just run out of the hands when dispensing it from the bottle. It is a pleasent looking clear blue colour and does not carry a very heavy scent. It is supposed to contain grapefruit and lemon peel although neither really stood out it has a mild citrus smell and the grapefruit seems to give it a nice clean smell.
A small amount of shampoo is plenty as it lathers up well and gives the feeling its getting right to the scalp. It is easy to rinse out and even with wet hair it felt really clean and barely any knots were present even before using the conditioner I got as the second half of my purchase.
After drying my hair it combed through a lot easier than usual and even after one wash just generally felt healthier to the touch and looked that way too.
Overall a great product and I would definately consider buying again at full price if I can't get it whilst on offer. Luckily it was on offer again when I went back for more so the likelyhood of getting this cheap seems good. Due to the amount of product needing to be used and the size of the bottle means it lasts for ages my last bottle managed more than 6 months of regular use.
The salon quality claims must be somewhere near close given the results and I would not hesitate to recommend grabbing a couple of bottles if seen on offer as it really does represent great value at two bottles for a fiver.
