Tresemme Naturals Conditioner review!


Product Review: TRESEMME NATURAL CONDITIONER!




If you are looking for a cheapie but naturally inspired conditioner to co-wash with, then I recommend the Tresemme Naturals line:


It seems the big companies are catching onto the fact that less really is more, and we really do not need to have products that are laden down with silicones and cheap fillers for them to be effective!






Great for co-washing!

Not Completely NATURAL!


Ok,  so this conditioner is not 100% Natural but at the price its sold at £5.39 for nearly 1 litre, and I purchased  it the second time around on a 3 for 2 deal at Sainsbury's one day so it was worth it!




Likes:

  • Its light
  • does not strip my hair, (there are some conditioners that do- trust me!)
  • cleans my scalp of oils
  • provides a good amount of SLIP (ability to make your hair easier to detangle)
  • Light moisture infusion
  • Not too many ingredients!



Dislikes:

  • the smell...although not bad not fruity enough for me!



Product facts:

In Summary!


I have been using this light conditioner for co-washing for a couple of months now and I like it, I also use it to wash the kids hair with and it does a great job, I would not use this for DEEP Conditioning, but you could actually use it as a leave-in too, I have done that for a twist out when my hair was out and it worked great, its actually light enough for me to manipulate through my braided hair under the weave and sometimes I will leave it in for a couple of days!




I have not tried the shampoo, it contains SULPHATES, although a lower amount than usual, I just don't do SULPHATES!




Try it and let me know what you think!

Hi there,
I have also bought this product for co washing but I have gone for the naturals nourishing moisture one. For the price I too have bought it in the hope that it will be economical for co washing but I also want to use it as a leave-in conditioner too. What I plan to do is to put some of the conditioner in a container and add some coconut and olive oil to it because my hair is quite dry, I have recently chopped all the relaxer out of my hair so it's now quite short so I'm looking for nice condidtioners to use for my wash and goes. Also I have been doing lots of research on what ingredients are not good for hair like parabens, mineral oils, petrelatum and basically anything ending in cone and I have also gone onto the british curly emporium, I don't know if you have too but they got some fantastic products on there but at the moment I can afford to pay like £10 for a shampoo or conditioner at 250ml. Thats why I thought I would try this Tresemme conditioner becuase the ingredients althought not all are natural are much better then most of the other popular brands. How do you use this as a leave-in? Do you add anything else to it. If you have a look on Youtube there are some videos from a lady under kimmaytube and she makes up a leave in conditioner with aloe vera, conditioner and oils. Maybe this Tresemme conditioner might work with it too. From your research do you think there are any issues with using this as a leave-in conditioner?

Hi,
I echo what you say about this product and I too have bought it for the same reasons. However I am hoping to use this as a leave-in conditioner. I haven't got the money to spend on some of the fabulous products i have seen on the british curlies emporium, (check it out if your don't know about it) so I am hoping to use this as a base to add some other ingredients too it like coconut and olive oil and pehaps a tiny amount of glycerin. I have just done the big chop and I am looking for a decently priced leave-in conditioner for my wash and goes, so I amnhoping this one will work out.

Hi Bernie,

I have used it as a leave in a couple of times and it was ok, it was not heavy and did not build -up, but my hair like yours and most textured hair needs something a little heavier in terms of moisture, so I used this then followed up with my Nourish Hydrate and Shine Me! Natural hair butter, its a heavier moisturising butter that gives moisture that lasts, great for twist outs. www.root2tip.com check-it out. I know Kimmay tube and I have not tried her leave-in with this, but nothing ventured nothing gained, try it and see how you like it!

I do know the British Curlies too, nice website pricey products!

Blessings,

Sal
