About: shampoo designed to mend split ends and reduce the appearance of split ends. Packaged in a large plastic bottle with flip lid applicator.
Review: I honestly can't believe that TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner are the first TRESemme products I have ever used. For years now TRESemme has been a leader in affordable haircare products and, unlike many brands who make a small range for a wide variety of concerns, TRESemme has focused on on addressing different hair concerns. Cue the brand new Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner, designed to wash and treat hair whilst reducing the appearance of split ends. I regularly colour my hair and in the cooler months it becomes much drier in the mid-lengths and ends. When my hair is in this condition, strands snap and split ends occur on a regular basis. I was super excited to try Split Remedy Shampoo to see if it could assist with improving the condition of my hair. There is so much value in every bottle - name another brand that who sells a 739ml bottle for less than $12? I'll bet you can't think of one! TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo is a rich formula with a thick, creamy consistency which is difficult to separate and break down to easily dissolve which means that it does tend to get caught in the hair. It is important to note that while I have dry ends, my roots are very oily and so I am particular with what I use. In the short time of using it, I discovered that Split Remedy Shampoo foams up really nicely, but after two washes my scalp suddenly felt dry and I experienced dry flakes which I would describe as dandruff (which I never endure) and once I stopped using Split Remedy Shampoo this issue ceased to exist. After washing and blow drying hair, tresses felt soft all over but my hair did not remain smooth and manageable for as long as I had expected. In the winter time I tend to wash hair twice a week but when using Split Remedy Shampoo I experienced extra shine in my blonde hair which left my hair look in need of a wash. Having said this though, this sheen would really accentuate and compliment honey, brunette, red and black hair tones. Would I use TRESemme in future? I would certainly love to try other products in the range, however with troublesome hair I do need to be careful of what I use because products too rich tend to simply build up and 'clog' in my hair. Do I believe its claims to be used by salon professionals? To be honest I am yet to meet a hairdresser or come across a salon who stocks TRESemme hair care and I do feel the formulas could be slightly improved but the brand is huge worldwide and it has potential.
