Review: TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

The title of this post says it all.....Review: TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume Shampoo & Conditioner. Let's start with how TRESemme describes the product line, and these two products...

Okay now let's get on with the actual review. As you all know by now, I am not a fan of shampoo, as it dries my hair out and leads to frizz. However, I thought in fairness to the line, I'd buy both products and try them together, to get accurate results. I also made sure not to tweak anything else in my routine, so I'd know how good or bad the products would work.

So here it is, TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume Shampoo: Oddly enough I liked it, I didn't love it, but it was pretty good. It did dry my hair out a little, as any shampoo would. However, it didn't leave my hair feeling like straw, but it certainly felt clean. The smell is really nice, not overpowering or chemically, just a nice sweet smell. They're supposed to have sweet orange extract in them, so I thought it would smell orangey. It didn't. It smells good, so that's always a bonus.

TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume Conditioner: This smells really good, the shampoo and conditioner have the same scent, but I usually find that conditioners smell more strongly than shampoo. Maybe it's just me? This is a decent drug-store, silicone-free conditioner. It's not immensely moisturizing, but it has fantastic slip and it makes detangling a breeze. For someone with fine hair, like myself, this would be a great spring/summer conditioner. In the winter it wouldn't provide enough moisture though. If you have thicker or coarse hair this would make a great cowash! It's a little bit thicker than Suave Naturals, and in my opinion provides slightly better moisturization. When I rinsed this out of my hair at the end of my shower, my hair still felt soft and slippery in a way. I would repurchase this, if for nothing else, it provides slip and detangling, I can get it on the ground, it smells good, and comes in a big 25 oz. bottle. I have a family of 4, so we go through hair products pretty quickly.

All in all, these are good drugstore options for any CG's out there, or someone just looking to use gentler shampoo and silicone free conditioner.

@Anonymous: If you notice, the first part of the post is the information, word for word, from the Tresemme site. I was including the information, so readers could see what the manufacturer claimed the product would do. The last part of the article is my actual review.
