Humid and crazy thick come wavy hair don't bode well.
You've all seen the episode of Friends in which Monica ends up with braids complete with seashells?
Well on several occasions I have been tempted let me tell you...I mean who doesn't want to hear the ocean via their hair? Before you begin to collect seashells at the beach you may want to try out the new Tresemme Keratin Smooth Collection...
The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Collection has been created with heat in mind in particularly hair straighteners, the whole concept is that you wash your hair using both the shampoo and conditioner and then follow up with heat activated treatment. Tresemme Keratin Smooth states that when used properly you can achieve up to 7 days of frizz free hair which was far too tempting for this frizz prone gal.
First up we have the Tresemme Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner which I will admit that when using they did feel pretty run of the mill - not overly drying in the shampoo's case and the conditioner wasn't quite as nourishing as I'd have liked but nothing tragic. I should mention that both products have a sweet almost strawberry scent which I personally like appreciate that it won't be to everyone's taste. The next step is to apply a healthy dollop of Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Activated Treatment to the entire hair lengths avoiding the scalp and then blow dry the hair straight and of course follow up with hair straighteners. Apparently the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Activated Treatment will last up to four washes when used in conjunction with the matching shampoo and conditioner.
In my experience if using all three of the products and taking the time to really blow dry your hair properly (i.e not tipping your head upside down and blasting it like I do) and following up with hair straighteners the hair is definitely smoother, silkier and frizz free. I would almost (and I say almost) liken it to a blow dry at the hair dressers but for me there is too much effort required. I'm pretty low key when it comes to my hair and I think I was looking for a quick, miracle fix for when abroad but the truth is when presented with Mediterranean heat the last thing I want to faff around with is extra heat! If you have more patience or perhaps less hair than I do then I really do recommend the trio for battling the frizz.
Now where did I leave those seashells...
