No matter what your hairstyle is, I think its fair to say that a lot of the time our hair can take a right beating! I know over the years my hair has been constantly abused by the straighteners curling wand, hair dye, backcombing, the sun... you get the idea the list is endless and as a result I think my locks have taken a right beating.... think dry damaged hair that is prone to snapping and breaking easily. As a lot of you probably know and can guess I'm an absolute lover of hair products and although I love to stick to my holy grail favourite products, I do love trying out new products on my hair and seeing if what difference they make and if they actually work.
I was on the hunt for a new shampoo and conditioner and I thought I would give the TRESemme Platinum Strength duo a go. I've always heard a lot of good things about this shampoo and conditioner that claims to repair up to two years worth of damage done to your hair in only five uses. I thought that these were pretty bold claims and this hair obsessed beauty blogger was eager to test this out and see if these products lived up to all the hype.
On first impressions I have to say I wasn't overly fussed or excited about picking these products up. As far as packaging goes, TRESemme products don't really excite me. Yes some may say that the back and white packaging makes these products look sleek and salon ready. But personally I prefer a little more excitement and brighter and bolder packaging when it comes to hair products. However packaging aside, after incorporating this shampoo and conditioner set into my hair care routine, I have to say I'm really impressed with how well the products actually work. If your looking to give your hair a major health boost and a bit of repair these products are definitely worth picking up.
I find that the TRESemme Platinum Strength Shampoo cleans the hair really well. You get just the right amount of lather when washing your hair and it makes your locks feel really clean. I also love how the shampoo does a great job of getting rid of any product build up that you may have in your hair, so you really are getting a good wash. It has that familiar TRESemme smell to it, which smells really pleasant and I find that the smell does transfer on to your hair, which is something that I love with hair products.
As for the TRESemme Platinum Strength Conditioner, I find that it's pretty lightweight and distributes though the hair pretty quickly - You really don't need to use a lot of product to give your locks a good condition. The conditioner smell matches the shampoo which makes this a lovely smelling set which is going to make your locks smell amazing. Because the conditioner is on the light side, it makes your hair really manageable which is great for styling. I also find that my hair is not that knotty after using, which is a huge plus if you have long hair.
As far as repairing two years worth of hair damage in just five uses is a bit of an exaggeration in my opinion. However since using this shampoo and conditioner I have noticed a huge difference in the overall condition of my hair. My hair looks and feels so much healthier and the ends of my hair definitely have a lot more strength. This shampoo and conditioner gives your hair great shine and seams to hide away any frizz or split ends you may have - which is always the biggest sign of damaged hair. I don't think its quite repaired two years worth of damage, however it does seam to mask major damage that your hair may have and it definitely does make your hair feel a lot stronger - And you really do need strong hair to achieve a good hair swish!
I really do enjoy using these products, however I am a huge believer that if you give your hair too much of something all the time it will get used to it and for that reason I only use these products when I feel like giving my hair a little pick me up. If I were to use them every time I washed my hair I don't think I would see such dramatic changes in my hair after using them. I think I would get a little fed up with these products if I had to use them on my hair all the time.
Overall I do think the TRESemme Platinium Strength Shampoo & Conditioner is a great set and if your hair needs a health boost then I would really recommend them, especially as they are pretty cheap at costing £4.99 a Bottle from Boots. If your looking to give your hair some TLC then I think you will love the results that this shampoo and conditioner give.
After loving these two products as much as I do, I'm really tempted to try some other products in the TRESemme Platinum Strength range, if you ladies have any recommendations be sure to let me know in the comments below. I would also love to know what your thoughts are on this shampoo and conditioner.
Lots of Love
