TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System

I've been trying out a lot of new hair products lately, and my latest adventure has been with TRESemmé's 7 Day Keratin Smooth System*. This is a new line from TRESemmé, and it's meant to be used with your heat styling tools. I really try hard to not heat style my hair, but you can't avoid it completely. I was really interested in trying out products with Keratin in them, because I don't think that I have before (other than a Suave dry shampoo)!

TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System

"The new TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System helps women emerge victorious in the battle for smooth hair - without an expensive trip to the salon. Comprised of a non-damaging formula, the new TRESemmé range features three products that work together for frizz-resistant hair that lasts through washes: shampoo, conditioner and a heat activated treatment. The Heat Activated Treatment is simply activated by the heat of flat iron and provides women with smooth hair that lasts for seven days, even through washes."

TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System Shampoo

You start off with TRESemmé's 7 Day Keratin Smooth Shampoo ($5.99/266 mL). This packaging is quite nice, and easy to use in the shower. This shampoo lathers up well, and it doesn't strip my hair (I hate that squeaky clean feeling). You only need a small amount to create a great lather, and then rinse away.

TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System Conditioner

Next, apply TRESemmé's 7 Day Keratin Smooth Conditioner ($5.99/266 mL) to the bottom half of your hair, and leave on for a few minutes. I always leave my conditioner on for the duration of my shower, while I cleanse, exfoliate, etc. This formula is a medium consistency - not too thin or too thick. I have quite dry & frizzy hair, and I love how this conditioner tames my mane!

The final step is TRESemmé's 7 Day Keratin Smooth Heat Activated Treatment ($7.99/89 mL). After showering, I towel dry my hair for a bit, and then I apply an argan oil, and a few pumps of this treatment. One of the great things about this product is that you only have to use it once a week (or every three washes), since the results last throughout several washings. I have to admit, I was really skeptical of this product. However, I was really, really impressed with the results! I colour my hair, and I find that my colour can look fairly dull at times. After using this treatment, I was amazing by how shiny and healthy my hair looked! Maybe there really is something to this keratin trend after all...

My only complaint about this line is that you have to use heat for the treatment to really work. I only use heat on my hair about once every two weeks - I like to wear my hair naturally wavy. The shampoo & conditioner can be used any time, whether or not you're using heat on your hair, and they still work just as well. If you use heat on your hair on a regular basis, I definitely think that this line is worth checking out. Whenever I plan on straightening my hair, I know that I'll be reaching for these products. Have you tried any products with keratin in them? Are you interested in this new line from TRESemmé? :)
