TRESemme has come out with a product that is supposed to reduce frizz and help you maintain your silky straight hair style for up to 7 days called ‘7 Day Keratin Smooth’. The system is made up of 3 products: the shampoo, conditioner, and keratin treatment serum. It has recently undergone an upgrade with the shampoo having lower sulfates, and the conditioner and treatment serum being infused with a new thermal technology that is activated with the use of a flat iron. The thermal technology along with the keratin is supposed to help with frizz reduction and mimic a salon keratin treatment, but at a more affordable price tag.
After seeing commercials and ads in my favorite magazines, I decided to give it a try. My hair is naturally wavy, curly, and frizzy. So this means that my hair immediately frizzes up in humidity. Living in Atlanta makes taming my hair while it is straight a daily chore that I’d rather not deal with. So when I heard about this product, I got excited to try it. I washed my hair, conditioned it, added the serum and blow dried my hair. Immediately, I noticed that my hair was super bouncy, soft and shiny, just from blow drying!
After sectioning off my hair, I took relatively thin pieces of hair and flat ironed my hair using the comb-chase method until my entire head was straight. My hair looked fabulous! It was voluminous, shiny, and bouncy. I had swing baby!
However, my look did not exactly look the same as it had did when I first flat ironed it and styled it over the next two days. The humidity did a number on my hair, but it still looked 10 times better than what it would have looked like without the treatment. Therefore, I give this product a 7 out of 10 overall. It definitely made my hair more manageable, soft, and less frizzy than without the product.
The verdict: go ahead and try it! Let me know what you think!
