TRESemme - Split Mend Treatment - Review

This was another sample I received from Latest in Beauty and it is one that I have seen about the blogsphere over the last couple of weeks.

When it comes to shampoo TRESemme is not a brand I like based on the stupid reason that I like to change my shampoo frequently and TRESemme comes in massive bottles.  It also like a heavily scented shampoo and Tresemme has that typical shampoo scent. However I was very pleased with all three products in the sample.  I was surprised.

The range is said to repair split ends up and an up to 80% reduction in split ends after 3 uses. I only got two uses so sadly I cannot become part of that statistic but I did think highly of all three products which you will see below.

"Retain that freshly cut look and feel for longer with TRESemme Split Remedy".

1. Split Mend Shampoo - a lovely creamy shampoo which actually smells great. It has been years since I have used TRESemme and I was wrong to brand them a boring scentless shampoo.  I don't know about you all think but I always think that a shampoo with a creamy consistency works better? Or at least feels nicer when  washing your hair. I feel some shampoos can feel like you are washing your hair with soap.

2.  Much like the shampoo the Split Mend Conditioner is great.  I was initially worried that I would not get a good test out of it as it came in those little sachet samples and I have thick long hair but the conditioner is so rich that the sachet was more than enough.  I used conditioner all over my hair and not just the roots and I could have easily got away with using 3/4 of the sachet.  This alone makes me pro-TRESemme as I am forever running out of conditioner before shampoo but with TRESemmme I might not face that problem.  I am sure I am not the only one that faces that problem every month.  I had to run out yesterday and buy a random bottle of conditioner so I can use up all my odd bottles of shampoo. You would think someone would have the brains to make the conditioner bottle bigger than the shampoo.

3. This is where the magic really happens - Split Mend and Protect Leave in Treatment.  Although the shampoo and conditioner as good I was not entirely convinced that they done anything to my split ends up this one certainly did something to my hair. This is the first time I have ever used a leave in treatment and being brutally honest I felt like I had jumped into that famous scene in 'There's Something About Mary'. Once I had got past laughing at that and the treatment had soaked into my hair all was good.  I always dried my hair not long after putting the treatment on so I am unsure if it would have worked better if I had just left my hair to dry naturally.  The results after drying were soft and voluminous hair but my hair did feel thick and you could feel the product on it.  I do not wash my hair every day and if you were to use this every time you washed your hair you would need to start washing your hair every day but my hair did look great.  For nights out this is a must if you have limp hair like mine.  Anyone with thinner hair tried this?

Overall I rate the Split Remedy collection highly and once I have some cash I will be investing in the full size bottles so I will no doubt review this again after using it for a longer period of time. Anything is worth a shot as far as split ends go and getting your hair cut these days is not cheap either so in the long run it could potentially save you some cash but lets not get too ahead of ourselves.
