TRESemme have recently brought out a new shampoo and conditioner range. Nothing crazy or amazing, however they have reversed the usual way that you would use your shampoo and conditioner. They say to use the conditioner first to avoid the terrible tangles after washing and maintain the moisture of your locks. And then use the shampoo to wash out the conditioner and gain the volume at your roots.
I've heard of this method before from a post on Pinterest (below!), so I thought I would try this brand out, see what I thought of the products and if it actually gives the hair volume that I want!
Detangling is not a massive issue either with the conditioner - I've tested the conditioner on un brushed and brushed hair before dampening and both times I've had no issues with knots when combing with a wide tooth comb.
The shampoo smelt absolutely horrible! It smells like a mix of bleach and soap - something that really put me off as I was expecting a similar scent like the conditioner had! This may be due to the "volumising" part of the whole process.
And disappointingly, the products did not give me any extra volume in my hair that I wanted after use. I may have to use the other products in this line for it to work fully, but when: a) you're on a budget and b) the advert promised that the shampoo and conditioner combo would do the trick, you feel a little bit underwhemeled!
Each time I have used these products, I have both blow dried my hair with a round brush, blow dried upside down and even let my hair dry naturally (to avoid any more damage!) Each result I ended up with the same limp hair that I would normally have with my normal shampoo and conditioner.
My verdict? I would not re buy this product in all honesty. Since it's recently been released, it is a little pricey for the result that you get! If you were to take anything away from this post, then just buy the conditioner and use a different shampoo! The results are the same whether you reverse the process or not in this case.
