It’s no secret that since cutting my hair shorter I have been a regular salon go-er. And since ‘the cut’ I have not been the most ‘comfortable’ person washing my own hair. TRESemmé was actually my favourite shampoo & conditioner brand when I had longer hair. It was the only shampoo & conditioner my sister & I used. The Keratin Smooth was our favourite at the time.

I recently reacquainted myself with the TRESemmé brand, & tried out the Salon Silk shampoo & conditioner on my hair. First off – it has become such a foreign experience to wash my own hair! But I’ve managed to get through it ok, & save some money in the process. Winning right?

As someone whose hair texture is on the ethnic or course side, any products I use have to have some sort of smoothing property in it. The TRESemmé Salon Silk range promises that your hair will be 2x smoother. Both the shampoo & conditioner within the Salon Silk range contain silk proteins & argan oil.

My Experience:

First off, I have to mention how easily the shampoo lathers. My pet peeve in life is shampoo that doesn’t lather to my standards. I haven’t washed my own hair in so long, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that my hair didn’t fall out. Hahaha I’m just kidding. On a serious note, my hair felt soft after washing it. I did wash it twice because that is my personal preference.

My favourite part of washing my hair is the conditioner. I loved this Salon Silk conditioner. TRESemmé recommends that you leave the conditioner on for 2-3 minutes. I left it on for about 5 – 8 minutes. My hair felt hydrated & smooth. I found that I was able to tame it a lot easier than I remember doing so the last time I tried to blow dry my own hair.

I purchased the TRESemmé Salon Silk shampoo & conditioner for R96.95 each at Clicks. This is extremely affordable considering that you’re getting 900ml (almost 1 litre) worth of product. It’s going to last you months, even if you wash your hair every second day.

**I have to mention that TRESemmé is currently running a competition where you & a friend could WIN an amazing trip to NEW YORK CITY! Do yourself a favour & buy a shampoo & conditioner from any range from TRESemmé (be sure to keep your till slip); & head to this website to enter.
