Influenster review: 7 Day Smooth System by TREsemmé
This is my review of the 7 Day Smooth System from TRESemmé which I received as a free courtesy of Influenster for testing and review purposes through their VoxBox program.
The products contained in the #SeasonOfSmooth VoxBox included TREsemmé's Keratin Smooth: 7 Day Smooth System Shampoo, Conditioner, and Heat Activated Treatment. The product claims that it will keep your hair smooth for 7 days or up to three washes after only one application.
Here are my results:
As you can see from my before picture, my hair doesn't like Winter very much. This is how it looks without using any extra products besides Shampoo/conditioner. The after is how it looks once I've used the Keratin Smooth 7 day treatment and a straightener. Immediately my hair feels and looks smoother and once I use the flat iron it smoothes it out even more. The first application does feel a bit heavier than I'm used to, but it's not uncomfortable and doesn't feel like it weighs my hair down like some other products do. It also doesn't make my hair feel very greasy, and I love that. All three products do smell like what a stylist puts in your hair at a salon, so if you like that smell it lasts the first two days! (Or until you wash your hair again.) I really love the smell and the way my hair feels. I couldn't stop touching it! As for the longevity of the products effects, they are greatly reduced by the time of the second shower, and by the third are barely noticeable. At least it doesn't wash out completely on the first wash after using it, but I don't agree that it lasts 7 days for my hair. (Fine and frizzy.) But overall I am very satisfied with this product. I thought I'd have to wait out Winter by damaging the heck out of my hair to make it look at least somewhat okay. But the 7 day system has shown me that I don't need to do that anymore. Now I can enjoy my #seasonofsmooth instead of season of frizz. I might purchase this product again in the future, and I do recommend it to others fighting the season of frizz like I do. But It does work better in straight hair. My mom tried it with her curly hair and there wasn't much of an improvement because she didn't use a curler or a flat iron on her hair. I think the heat is key in this case for activating the serum.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next year! :)
