“ Brand: Tresemme / Type: Hair Shampoo / What it does: Vitalizes, „
I'm not very loyal to any particular brand of hair care products, but I do like V05 and Tresemme very much and return to these brand often. I always buy this colour revitalising shampoo from Tresemme whenever I see it on offer.
Tresemme products are designed to give you a salon quality at home and at an affordable price. I first became aware of the brand when the annoying hairdresser who was once on Big Brother was advertising it on TV (in case you managed to forget these adverts that were once everywhere you can refresh your memory here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGScqPdyj​2s ).
I have bought this shampoo from Asda, Boots and Wilkinson before but it is also easy to find in many other supermarkets and shops.
In Wilkinson a 900ml bottle of this is currently £3, they don't seem to stock the smaller size.
In Boots (and also in their online store) you can find this shampoo for sale at £3.26 for the 500ml size (which will gain you 12 points if you have an advantage card). They don't seem to stock the larger size but they do currently have the shampoo on a buy one get one free offer which also includes other Tresemme products.
In Asda the 500ml size costs £3.26 and the 900ml size is £2. I have no idea why the bigger one is cheaper! They also sell a travel size bottle for £1.12.
The price of this shampoo is pretty good and I love that you can get large bottles as these offer more value for your money, especially if you find them on offer which I find they frequently are.
The bottle that this shampoo comes in is round and curves over at the top into a small lid. The lid had a push cap on it to dispense the shampoo. The bottle and lid are both black and the bottle has some red patterns running across it (the bottle is the same is in the Ciao picture but with a very slightly different design on it).
I like the packaging, possibly because I like black. It looks sleek and no-fuss to me which is nice. I'm not so keen on the cap dispenser through as this can sometimes get a little clogged up.
To use you massage into wet hair and then rinse out, as you would with any other liquid shampoo. I follow this up with the matching Tresemme colour revitalise conditioner.
The product is easy to squeeze out of the bottle provided you don't get a blockage in the dispenser. The shampoo doesn't have a particular fragrance but it does smell nice. The consistency is good, not too thin or thick but somewhere in the middle.
The shampoo lathers up nicely and rinses out well when you are done.
When I use this shampoo my hair does feel in good condition and it does seem good at prolonging the colour of my hair. It doesn't give me a fresh, deep cleaned feeling, but then shampoos designed to help prolong your hair colour usually do not. My hair feels soft and has a nice shine to it after using this shampoo, but it is slightly harder for me to create a voluminous look after using this shampoo as this gives a sleek look rather than a full bodied one.
I like this product and I think it's good value. I would recommend this to anyone with coloured hair as it really helps me to keep my colour and stop my hair drying out when used with the matching conditioner.
After dying my hair a particularly vivid purple earlier this year I found myself in need of a new colour protecting type of shampoo. I was attracted by the size of Tresemme's bottles and their relative cheapness (I believe I picked mine up for £3 and it's a very large bottle which has lasted a long time).
I had used Tresemme in the past and have found that their shampoos have always done great things for my hair it doesn't get greasy quickly after using them, they smell great and don't leave a heavy residue.
However, the colour protection side of this shampoo really let it down, the bottle claims that when used alongside the conditioner, this shampoo would help protect coloured hair for forty washes. I found this to be far from true and was quite quickly left with a reddy-orange look.
After using this shampoo I can only recommend it to people who's colour is perhaps not so vibrant as my own.
Tresemme are an affordable hair care brand that market themselves as being salon quality without the high price tag. I have tried several of their products, one of them being the Colour Revitalising shampoo. It can be purchased at most good supermarkets or beauty stores, and is available in various sizes. I purchased mine as part of a 2 for £5.00 deal from Tesco, which was incredibly good value as you get a massive 900mls of product which will last for ages.
Tresemme say: "Professional performance formula with UV filters, vitamin E and pure aloe. Colour locking complex enhances colour vibrancy and adds radiant shine."
The shampoo bottles are solid black colour and have a pop out lid which allows you to dispense the shampoo through a small hole. The bottles have a sleek appearance and look like a good quality salon brand (which of course, they are!). It can be very difficult to get the product out sometimes, especially if you are nearing the end of one of the larger bottles as you really have to shake it around and wait for the stuff to come to the other end of the bottle before you can squeeze it out. It would have been better if the lids were removable but you can't unscrew it as it is fixed in place.
The shampoo itself is a clear and colourless gel-like liquid. It is reasonably thick but flows easily and spreads well over the hair. It has a fairly nice scent that gives your hair that fresh, clean smell but it isn't too noticeable or overpowering and it will fade away after a while.
Recommended directions for use: Apply a generous amount of shampoo to wet hair, massage thoroughly and rinse. Repeat if necessary.
To use, I massage this into damp hair, adding a little extra water to create a good foam. The shampoo bubbles up easily without requiring a lot of agitation, and a little goes a long way as it spreads well.
As well as having fine thin hair, I am also prone to breakage, split ends and dryness along with greasy roots...nice mix! And on top of this it has been heavily dyed. I went for a period of about 1 year without dyeing my hair, but decided to hit the bottle again back in September. I have been using this shampoo exclusively since, as I wanted to look after my coloured hair. I have not noticed any evidence to say that this shampoo has helped to prolong the richness of my dyed hair colour or add to its vibrancy. In fact, 2 months after dyeing my hair there are patches where the colour has washed away and it generally looks faded. I used a permanent dye and would have hoped that this shampoo would help maintain the level of colour on my hair. After washing my hair with this shampoo it usually feels clean and smooth, but will quickly become greasy, so I am having to wash my hair more frequently. I believe this may have accelerated the fading process and is essentially undoing any good that the shampoo might have otherwise done.
The large bottles last for months and months and this makes them very good value for money. It did help my hair to feel smoother but I can tell by the number of split ends that are appearing that this is not strong enough to keep my hair from becoming damaged. This is a reasonable shampoo that cleanses well and leaves my hair feeling soft, but not really suited to anyone who is prone to greasy hair. I also don't feel that it lived up to its claims for colour protection so I don't think I would bother buying it again. In my opinion the best shampoo and conditioner from the Tresemme range are the Salon Silk products, and I will steer clear of the Colour Revitalising products in the future.
Ive been dying my hair for as long as i can remember and the colour went flat and my hair went straw like. Tresemse colour revitalize shampoo brings the shine back to your hair as well as leaving your hair healthy again. Its a big bottle so lasts me about 15 washes and i have medium/long hair. You only need to use a teaspoon full as it lathers up into a foam like fill and covers your hair top to bottom. Its also have a perfume smell rather then a fruity smell like other shampoos. Tresemme is used by professionals so you no the quality is one you can trust. But even tho it is a professional product it doesn't cost the same as one such as Paul Mitchell. Recommended to put the bounce back into your hair and protect against all weathers. Use with Tresemme colour revitalize conditioner for a salon feel and appearance.

<> Used by Professionals <>
Tresemme is a professional shampoo for colour treated hair. My bottle contains a whacking 900 ml, and it contains Vitamin E and Aloe. It promises to enhance the vibrancy of coloured hair.
The container of the Tresemme is black with mainly white writing upon it, with pink writing highlighting the fact that it is for colour treated hair. It has a black snap-up lid, and the shampoo is contained in a large plastic squeezable bottle. This really is a lot of shampoo for your money, and I can barely hold the large bottle in my hand. The contents at 900ml is pretty heavy and should last me ages, and the shelf life is 12 months once opened.
The shampoo promises to revitalise the colour and vibrancy of my hair by locking the colour in with their unique complex, including ingredients Vitamin E and Aloe. There are inbuilt UV filters in the Tresemme for hair protection when out in the sun, or the elements.
There are four shampoos in the Tresemme range;
Moisture rich:= Moisturising and protecting.-
Healthy volume:= Protecting and volumising.-
Deep cleansing:=Volumising and clarifying.
Each shampoo is a salon rich aloe formula, advertised as being similar to the quality and performance you would expect from a hair salon.
<>Salon Tips for use:<>
The bottle advises to use generous amounts of the shampoo to wet hair, massage shampoo into the hair well to a rich lather and then rinse. Do a second shampoo if you feel your hair needs it. Tresemme shampoo works at it's maximum performance when paired with the Tresemme conditioner, and other styling products in the range. As always do avoid contact with the eyes! Should you get this product in your eyes, rinse at once with warm clean water. Shampoo contains chemicals that can damage the cornea, so the eyes must be thoroughly rinsed if the product has contact with them.
The shampoo itself is clear, and quite thin in consistency, and it has a pleasant rose fragrance. It does lather up quite well, and only a small amount is needed. The ingredients are listed to the reverse of the bottle, for you to see, and you can look them up on the Internet, if you so wish. It's useful to know exactly what you are using. The address of the company is listed too, should you need to write to them, and it also states their website address.
Well the shampoo is OK. Nothing to get too enthused over. It's pretty economical. I feel the price was very good for such a large container. To tell the truth I have had it so long I can't remember the exact price but it was about £3.99 as a promotional price I think, it is 900 ml, and it has lasted forever. The shampoo I found to be a bit drying actually, a bit detergent based, and I should think for someone with a dry scalp, or a sensitive one, this shampoo wouldn't be suitable at all. I wasn't enamoured with it. I think with this brand a lot of us got caught up with the hype surrounding it; a salon brand available in the shops! Lets go buy it...Well I am still left with a ¾ full bottle, and yet I still buy other brands when they run out. This large bottle has taken a back seat and will only come out in an emergency.- Current bottles of 100 ml sell at £2.99 from Boots should you wish to try it.-
Thank you for reading
Just occasionally, I am talked into parting with a lot of money to purchase the shampoo stocked by my hairdresser. Hand on heart? Quite honestly, I really dont see much of a difference in the condition of my hair whether I use over-priced products or a cheaper range. Mind you, theres cheap and theres cheap. I am well aware of the claim that shampoos purchased in supermarkets etc are watered down versions of the real thing sold by salons. This might well be true, but if you choose carefully, I really dont see why its necessary to pay £8 for a bottle of shampoo which is the price of the shampoo stocked by my hair salon.
Of the lower-priced range (its all relative), I recently discovered Tresemmé Vitamin E & Aloe Colour Revitalising Shampoo for Colour Treated Hair. A huge 900ml size could be mine for £1.99 and I could get the conditioner for free! Well, a bargain not to be sniffed at and as I needed to buy some more shampoo anyway, I decided to try this. If it wasnt up to much, it could always be used as a stand-by in emergencies.
TRESEMMÉ COLOUR REVITALISING SHAMPOO
Specially for colour treated hair, this particular shampoo is fortified with Aloe moisturisers, enhanced with a UV protectant and boasts that it will give your hair a more radiant shine.
The bottle I bought was a huge 900ml size, with a flip-top lid. As someone who suffers with arthritis in the hands, its important I am able to actually open a product without too much hassle. Despite the circumference of this bottle (normally the size is 500ml and therefore probably easier to hold), I didnt find it presented too much of a problem. The flip-top itself is easy to flip up I mention this because I have purchased some flip-top shampoos where the tops have been so stiff Ive had to get my husband to open up the shampoo and then I have to make sure it stays open until the bottle is disposed of. The consistency of this shampoo is fairly fluid, which again is important because other shampoos I have used have been so thick that Ive been unable to get them out of the bottle. Someone without arthritic hands can squeeze the bottle, but someone like me relies on the contents flowing out of the bottle with very little help!
Well, I did a little research and it seems that youd need to use at least 25-40 per cent of Aloe juice or leaf in any one product for it to be of any good use. Aloe itself brings to mind the words Soothe, protect and moisturise, so to have Aloe as an ingredient in a shampoo for colour treated hair can only be a plus. How much use it is in this particular product, I have no idea. On checking the list of ingredients, I see that Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice comes in sixth on the list of a total of 32 other ingredients all of them unpronounceable and it doesnt say what percentage of Aloe juice is used.
This comes in fifth on the list under the name Tocopheryl Acetate and is an antioxidant, so I presume including it in a shampoo would help rid the hair of impurities.
COLOUR LOCKING COMPLEX
Your guess is as good as mine! It would seem that the Pure Aloe, Vitamin E and UV Filters (Ultra Violet Filters to protect from sun damage), all combine to lock in the colour.
The following claims are made on the bottle and I give below my opinion:
DEEP CLEANSING: Yes
This sparklingly clear shampoo, with the slight consistency of runny gel, has a delightfully understated, refreshing perfume. Whether the fragrance mimics Aloe I have no idea as Ive never smelled an Aloe plant. It just smells pleasantly clean and slightly soapy. In fact, I like the fragrance so much, I would love to use it as a shower gel!
Pouring a generous dollop (about two teaspoons) into the palm of my hand I was pleasantly surprised with the clear gel appearance because it looks clean and fresh no bad thing for a shampoo. It lathers up well on hair that has been thoroughly wetted with hot water.
After a thorough massaging into the scalp and hair, I rinsed off with my shower attachment, and my hair was left squeaky clean. This in itself was unusual because no matter what shampoo I use and no matter how often I rinse, I have never had the same totally rinsed feel to my hair as I have after using the Tresemmé. Of course, a conditioner is absolutely necessary with colour-treated hair but thats another review!
MOISTURE RICH: Dont know!
Its a little difficult to vouch for this claim. If it means that the hair doesnt have a dry feel to it once its dried with a hairdryer, then I dont know! This shampoo is for colour-treated hair and colour treated hair needs conditioner, otherwise, the hair is impossible to comb through and feels like a mat. After using this shampoo, the hair still feels like a stiff mat so you do need a conditioner before drying. Thats not a black mark against the shampoo my £8 bottle of salon shampoo is exactly the same. So the claim of moisture rich does not mean that you dont require a conditioner after shampooing.
COLOUR REVITALISING: Seems justified
I cant say that Ive noticed my hair colour faded at all. I daresay its a little difficult to really notice faded colour on blonde hair, so I cant give an opinion on the colour fastness of darker colour treated hair. Anyway, revitalise, means to restore or refresh, so are they claiming the shampoo will restore your hair colour? Hmm! Am I being too picky here?!!
HEALTHY VOLUME: Eh?
As opposed to unhealthy volume? Sorry, just a spot of ad-mans bull there, I think! Again, once Ive used this shampoo, I then condition, then add a styling product, so whether the shampoo on its own has an ingredient which boosts the volume I dont know.
Finally, after picking the claims to bits, I shall give this shampoo the thumbs up! It smells lovely, it cleans my hair and as far as I can tell it doesnt dry it out. It is used by the professionals and whether we, the public in the supermarket, are buying a watered down version, Ive no idea, but its a good shampoo.
Normally, I understand it is about £3.99 for a 500ml size, so its not that cheap, but certainly better value for money than most salon products.
Would I buy it again? Certainly!
I was totally amazed by how this product gave me my hair back. I have used several professional shampoos before but never been satisfied with the results. This product left my dull lifeless hair with bounce, shine and managability. My hair now is my crowning glory, as before I felt like walking around with a bag on my head because it was so dull. My hubby now loves to snuggle up and stroke my new found hair. thanks Tresemme.
I bought this product at a special offer of £2.89 for the shampoo and conditioner from my local superstore. Bargains at their best..
