Product Review & Big Life Updates!

maxresdefault
Hi guys! TGIF 🙂 It’s been a long few weeks but somehow it all works out. So I received a few samples of TRESemme’s new Beauty-Full Volume pre-wash conditioner and shampoo. I’ve heard all about these products and have been DYING to try them so I’m so happy I finally got the chance.

& If you’re wondering about my big news?? I got accepted to Paul Mitchell school of cosmetology. Seriously guys, I’m SO excited to bring you all along the way with me. I’m talking new beauty ideas and techniques, behind the scenes products, hair shows.. the works. I am really excited about this one.. Yayy!

But back to the review: This shampoo & conditioner is the first of its kind. You condition BEFORE you shampoo (I know, right?). The theory behind this is that your typical shampoo & condition can leave your strands dull and weighed down/flat.

What it claims. 
According to TRESemme’s website: “The unique formulation, with Fleximax Volumizers, helps control static and flyaways, infusing your hair with volume and leaving it prepped for styling. Our new revolutionary Reverse System with conditioner before shampoo helps you achieve volume and softness at the same time. Used after the Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner, hair is left silky and soft, but not flat.”

My Hair.
My hair is naturally thin, but with a lot of strands. It is naturally “fluffy”, not straight, not curly, prone to frizz, and damaged from heat styling. This can be a problem for me because it needs extra product to thoroughly condition, but can also be easily weighed down.

The Instructions.
1. Pre-Wash Conditioner: To be used before shampoo. Distribute even throughout wet hair. Leave on for 1 minute, rinse thoroughly.
2. Shampoo: To be used after pre-wash conditioner. Apply to wet hair from roots to tips. Work into a lather. Rinse thoroughly. Style as desired using the full TRESemme Beauty-Full Volume styling range.

What I noticed. 
It was a bit strange at first to apply the conditioning pre wash before shampooing but the beautiful scent which was sweet and floral. The conditioning pre wash was a nice consistency: not too thick or slimy, but fluid enough to coat the entire hair shaft. I even applied it to my scalp, which I normally avoid in case of product build up, oil, and limp strands (this can leave my roots dry and frizzy though, usually a problem). I then applied the shampoo & massaged for a minute to a luscious lather, seriously- a lather to die for! This made it very easy to rake through the rest of my hair.. all the way down to my ends as instructed.

The results.
I’ve used this product a few times and honestly love it! Applying the conditioner first means I can nourish my frizzy roots while still feeling clean. As a result my strands have had much more bounce and also feel much more moisturized, easy to style, and soft to the touch. I would certainly recommend this product. I honestly cant think of a critique for this product!

 

*I received this product as a sample to try, I did not purchase this product myself*

 

That’s all for now guys,
Have a GREAT weekend.
Xo, Miranda.

    Congrats, Miranda! That is so wonderful. My best friend graduated from Paul Mitchell and loved it. She is the only one I let touch my hair ;). Thank you for this post- I have hair very similar to yours and have tried everything lately it seems and it still is uncooperative. I cannot wait to try this!
