TRESemme have recently launched a bit of a revolution into the hair market – called Split Remedy the range promises to actually help repair split ends. By repair I don’t just mean coat in silicone so it looks like there aren’t any there, I mean actually repair. I’m no scientist, so I’m not going to try and explain what it is or how it does this… but it’s described as a ‘reconstructive complex’ that does something to the damaged parts involving ions…so I think of it as the magnet that pulls the damaged bits back together again.
I used the shampoo and conditioner for around two weeks and didn’t feel totally blown away. My hair felt soft and silky and not weighed down, which are my usual ‘requirements’ for liking shampoo and conditioner – so I was happy, but not blown away.
But it was when I stopped using it that I realised how impressive the duo actually is – I moved onto using another shampoo and conditioner that I noticed the effect the TRESemme Split Remedy had. I noticed that my hair had more frizz and little sticky-out split ends all over, whereas when I used the Split Remedy my hair had more shine and actually looked smooth and split end free – and considering that I haven’t had my hair cut since around June….that’s no mean feat!
I think that because I do want more from a shampoo than just dealing with split ends (I want volume and colour protection too, plus something that deals with a sensitive scalp…) I don’t think the TRESemme will become my daily use shampoo/conditioner, but I can see myself having this as my back up for when it’s been a bit of a long time between hair cuts (like now) but if you suffer from split ends then I do recommend you give this a go.
There are other products in the range too, so it’s not just a shampoo and conditioner – there’s also a leave in treatment, mask and serum although I haven’t given these a trial yet but it’s good to know what’s our there!
