Tresemme 7 Day Smooth Serum.

I should start this post by telling you that I haven't been using this along with the shampoo and conditioner, which is recommended for best results. Whatever Tresemme. I couldn't afford to get everything in the range as I'm trying to curb my spending a little; you know cos that's what us bloggers tell ourselves when we feel a little guilty about spending all of our wages on beauty products. In reality it doesn't work for me because however long I manage to stick to my spending ban will be how many things I buy when I finally decide to take my debit card out for a stroll.

The Tresemme 7 Day Smooth Serum claims to keep your hair frizz free for up to four washes; a claim which I definitely had to put to the test when I saw this. Overall, I have pretty average hair. It's gotten extremely long, but because its so thick and coarse it can get a bit frizzy if the weather is anything other than mild, and during a particularly intensive gym session I always catch sight of myself as curly sue in the mirror. I'm glad I have thick hair, but sometimes it can be an absolute chore to maintain and style it. 

On the back of the box the directions say to use up to five pumps of serum through damp hair before blow drying. I actually got a bit worried that that amount of product would make my hair greasy so I ended up only using two. I rarely straighten my hair but after blow drying it on this particular occasion I decided to get out the old GHDs  to activate the serum and keep my hair frizz free for longer. 

Now I didn't see much of a difference until I washed my hair again two days later. I left my hair to dry naturally, which normally results in fly aways and leaves it a little fluffy, but to my astonishment my hair looked much sleeker, and shinier. There wasn't any frizz in sight, and although my hair is naturally quite big and curly it wasn't as bushy as normal, and the serum really seemed to have calmed it down. 

I would say that it lasted another wash after that one so for the price it is a fairly good product. If you only have a little frizz then I'd probably say you don't need it as it does take a little effort the first time you use it. I'm really happy I tried this and I'm hoping it will be a lifesaver on holiday when the humidity turns my locks into a frizz ball!

Have any of you tried this yet? Do you think these kind of products are worth the hype?



  1. I did look into buying this but then I see that the product is full of silicones and I've been trying to avoid them (at the most part) You should try Philip Kingsleys Elasticiser, it's totally amazing!! x

    1. Ah I see! Well I stopped using silicones for ages and it just made my hair more brittle and dry for some reason :( So now I'm just going to use them again! haha naughty! I have a sample of that somewhere in my stash, I've just not got round to using it yet! I must try it soon:) xxxxxxxx

  2. I tried a sachet of this and after washing my hair was a lot smoother and less frizzy! I was so impressed I've added it to the wish list, for me it was like a better version of the V05 Smoothly does straightening lotion (it was well rubbish!) I thought this smelt nice too :D xx
