Tresemme is a UK brand founded by stylist Alberto Culver, himself working on hair for over 40 years. Tresemme have advertised continually for 'Salon hair' - so I gave it a go.
''Tresseme Moisture Rich Shampoo.''
After many attempts at finding the right shampoo, (vidal Sasoon, H&S, Timotei, Johnsons etc,) we thought this a go. I often used to have dry flaky hair and often dandruff to boot. This was caused by the relative drying of my scalp. Head and Shoulders effect was short-lived, dandruff came back after a few months.
''Size of Bottle/price'' First thing that strikes you compared to many other products is the design of the bottle - its huge (900ml) for a £3.99 price - that is amazing value for money. Moreover, Asda and Tesco have at times been selling this product at 2 for £5 - so naturally I was tempted to see what was all fhe fuss about.
''First Purchase'' It was from Asda, about 2yrs ago, yes at the 2 for £5 price. I bought the moisture rich shampoo with vitamin E and a conditioner. Boy it lasted months!
''First use'' Both myself and my wife tried the shampoo. Immediately my hair was feeling much softer and less itchy. My wife also expressed similar sentiments - and she has long black hair, which after one wash, she felt it was really clean. Then applying the conditioner, my wife's hair was really professional looking - as if she really did step out of the salon. When I put my fingers through her hair, it was just really gentle and soft with complete separation of hair strands (she used to get alot of split-ends). For me, my shorter hair, the look and feel of running my hands through my hair and generally comfortable feel was pretty good.
''Continuous Usage'' As I said for myself and wife, the bottle of shampoo outlasted all of the brands before - and I assumed the effect would also disintegrate with time. But no, Tresseme moisture rich, held firm. I continually got the same results as I did the first. Yes, I must admit. the use of the shampoo on its own would not necessarily destroy all the effects of heat damage or dandruff, but when used with a conditioner, even these effects were limited unless of course you would wait a week to wash your hair!
''Salon Perfect ??'' From a man's shorter hair, yes, probably one of the best out their. From my wife's perspective, brilliant again. As for the value for money - nothing can beat it. Usually high quality shampoos are quite pricey and branded as such - Tresemme brand themselves on high salon quality and low affordable price.
''Adverts true - Salon hair at affordable price??'' Most definately - they have the all the basic ingredients, for example, Vitamin E and C, plus it has a name which is indeed used by a high number of salons, hence enhancing its reputation. And what you get is a large 900ml bottle probably on a special offer - you cannot really ask for more.
''Recommendation???'' Most definitely, except I would give one piece of advice. Remember, the product has a range for a reason, for you to know your hair type and what it requires. For example, it is no good getting Tresemme Moisture Rich shampoo if your hair is greasy, and in other cases you may need a conditioner to alleviate other conditions. In these situations, it would be wrong to blame the product since the right label has not matched your hair type. Other than that, it is a brilliant product and range of products, worth trying by anyone.
P.S. Just to add, as someone mentioned, we of eastern origins tended to use oil to condition our hair, hence oil tends to have the same properties as conditioners, so conditioners are not always needed.
