Advantages: Great Smell, Easy Lather, Cleansed Hair
Disadvantages: Bottle Design
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.
