Frizzy hair is the bane of my life, I have thick, wavy hair that takes a lot of effort to straighten & style. I have serious envy towards those of you that naturally have sleek smooth hair or can achieve straightened hair with minimum work! When I heard that Tresemme had launched a new product range that was designed to provide long lasting, salon styled straight hair I knew I'd have to test them out!
The products are infused with Keratin & have built in thermal technology which works with the heat from straighteners to deliver frizz resistance, ensuring my hair stays straight for longer, even after washing it. The Shampoo is low in sulphates meaning my hair feels cleaner than ever as it removes impurities as well as gently cleansing it. The conditioner helps to lock in the Thermal technology that is activated once the heat is applied. The combination of the Shampoo & Conditioner together leaves my hair feeling silky soft & also much more manageable when I come to brush it afterwards. Once I've towel dried my hair I apply a couple of pumps of the 7 day smooth Treatment, mostly focusing on the lengths but I add a small amount to the upper sections of my hair as well. I then either blow dry my hair or leave it to dry naturally, depending on how much time I've got & then it's time for the straighteners to activate the Thermal Technology & lock my hair into super sleek mode! You're supposed to straighten your hair in small sections & go over that section 3-4 times but even straightening my hair as I normally would I can still see a difference with how straight my hair becomes so quickly. Usually my hair takes ages to become poker straight because it frizzes up with the heat & becomes more voluminous than I want it to be! I can also go to sleep with straight hair & wake up the next day with straight hair which is actually quite a surreal experience for me! I'm so used to waking up to my hair being wavy & kinking in all the wrong places so as you can imagine it's a great feeling to see my hair in a presentable condition in the early hours of the morning!
I use this trio of products once a week as I like to vary my hairstyles so when I know that I want to keep my hair straight for a few days I use this haircare routine. I find it such a chore to wash, dry & straighten my hair because of how thick & frizzy my hair can be but after trialling the 7 Day Keratin Smooth System I can report back to say it's made taming my hair much more enjoyable. I achieve smoother, straighter hair in a much shorter amount of time & I've also been able to reduce the amount of heat I use each week as I don't need to re-straighten my hair as often!
