Thanks to Beauty South Africa I had the privileged of testing the new Tresemme Keratin Smooth range. Being someone that struggles to tame my frizzy locks I was very grateful to receive these little 100ml bottles of shampoo and conditioner. The Keratin Smooth range promises to control frizz for up to 48 hours leaving your hair looking smooth and sleek like you just stepped out of the salon. Sounds good to me!

Keratin Smooth Shampoo:
The shampoo has a murky liquid consistency and flows easily out of the bottle. With one application the shampoo lathers well and cleanses the hair thoroughly. It has a very light texture which makes rinsing the product out of the hair a breeze. I love that it smooths the hair while cleansing it. My hair felt soft, clean and manageable. The shampoo has a very pleasant sweet floral smell with a hint of rose water that stays on the hair.

Keratin Smooth Conditioner:
The conditioner is my favourite out of the two products. It has a creamy white texture that soaks into the hair. I could really feel the keratin working through my locks in this product. As I combed the conditioner through, my hair became untangled and frizz free. I love using conditioners so I decided to keep this conditioner on for 10 minutes longer as a pampering treat. As I rinsed the product out I was surprised at how smooth and straight my hair appeared to be. As I said above I struggle to tame my frizzy tresses so I was really happy with the results so far. 

My Verdict:
I let my hair dry naturally to see if the Keratin Smooth range really does smooth the hair as it says it does. To my surprise my hair was soft, frizz free and felt really smooth when it was completely dry. I just love the sweet scent which lingers on my hair for days after washing it. Even my pillow smelt like the sweet Keratin range. 

My one gripe with the Tresemme products is the bottle packaging. The plastic bottles are quite cumbersome which doesn't make it easy for travelling. Even though the products fall easily out of the bottles, when the bottles are almost empty it is really difficult to squeeze most of the product out towards the end. I love using my products to the last drop, so trying to access the conditioner sitting right at the bottom of the bottle proved very difficult.

Even though the packaging is not ideal I highly recommend the Tresemme Keratin Smooth range for those who would like soft manageable frizz free hair. You really won't be disappointed!
