As an Asian girl with naturally straight hair, you’d think I don’t have any problems with frizzy, crazy, unruly hair. You’d be right, except this girl likes to abuse her hair. Okay, enough talking in third person.
Ever since my mom gave me the GO! signal to chop my hair, bleach my bangs and dye it pink (hello, 2003!), not a year goes by without some kind of drastic hair change. I’ve gone from super long, almost down to my waist, to Victoria Beckham late 2000s pixie-short. I’ve bleached my own hair (with pro products, of course!) and also dyed it dark. I’ve had pink hair, bad bangs and a lot of awkward growing out stages. As you can imagine, my hair’s been through a lot. I’m surprised my hair hasn’t voluntarily fallen out yet, for fear of what I’m about to do next.
Then I surprised each strand with my week-long trial of TRESemmé’s 7 Day Keratin Smooth System. It’s a 3-part system that gives your hair a smooth appearance and frizz-free tresses for 7 days. After everything that my hair’s been through over the past 10 years, I think it deserves some pampering, no?
The set comes with three products—shampoo, conditioner and a heat-activated treatment—that work together to give you smooth, frizz-free hair. It’s a simple enough routine that you probably already go through every time you wash your hair anyway.
But that’s where the similarities end. Never have I had smoother, easier-to-manage tresses. My hair is dead, you guys. Ok, yes, hair is dead, but mine is the repeatedly-chemically-processed type of dead.
Both the shampoo and conditioner have an amazing smell. I did notice the consistency was a bit different, thicker and less fluid. It was easy to apply, massage in, and wash off in the shower, and the conditioner specifically had good staying power while I let my hair soak it in for a few minutes.
The heat-activated treatment is my favourite. I use a total of three pumps, and that’s enough to cover all my strands. After thoroughly blow-drying my hair with a paddle brush, I run a flat iron through and the result is a salon-quality mane.
I’m a pretty low-maintenance girl when it comes to my hair—I shampoo, condition, apply treatment, and blow dry. Pretty straightforward stuff, and I can honestly say this 3-part system makes it easy.
