You may be wondering what "Influenster Post" means. Well, I have the privilege of, periodically, getting selected to receive a big old box of free stuff. The catch is, I have to use it and give my review.
I sure think so!
These big old boxes of goodness are called a Voxbox and they change every time. I've received everything from food items to bath and body items to cosmetic items. It's a lot of fun!
Today I'm giving a review of my latest Voxbox from Influenster. I received the latest hair innovation from Tresemme's Expert Collection. It's a 2-step condition and shampoo system, just like any other system... EXCEPT... you reverse it! Yep, It's a reverse system that has you conditioning before you shampoo.
I began this test out a little bit skeptical. I know that Tresemme is considered an "affordable" haircare product aka "not as good as the salon". However, in my experience with these budget friendly products, I know that price doesn't always equal the quality. I've used some expensive haircare product before only to be disappointed.
I was intrigued with the "reverse system" approach and, I thought maybe... just maybe... this might work for my hair. My hair is fine. I have a lot of it but, it's fine. And it gets oily fast. I usually wash my hair every other day, with day two pushing it!
So, I did the wash. It was weird putting the conditioner in first but, I noticed a difference when I washed. My hair was less tangled and it felt lighter. Hmmm... was this my imagination? Placebo affect? Who knows.
Here is a photo of my luscious locks after washing that fine day:
Yeah it's nothing special. That's how my hair always looks after a wash and style. I don't do a whole lot with it during the work week. What I did notice was how soft my hair was and how good it smelled. I liked it so far!
When I was styling, I thought it styled just like any other time. It wasn't the easiest, then again, I'm due for a haircut!
Now, here is the real test. I'm about to show you a series of side by side photos of me on day THREE of not washing my hair. Both times I had curled my hair and wanted to make it last. The 'before' photos are me trying to doctor up the oily hair with my hairspray and such. The 'after' photos are after using this new Tresemme 'reverse system' with NO doctoring! What the what!
|You can definitely notice a difference in my bangs area! Before is definitely more oily and weighed down.|
After... looks as fresh as ever.
Can you see the difference???
I even think my hair held the wave and curl better, too.
This is the difference with just the conditioner and shampoo. I didn't change my actual hair styling product or tools.
So, my final analysis...
It will take some getting use to - what with doing the conditioning first and all. While I didn't notice anything spectacular the day of... the difference showed up two days later when I was still enjoying beautiful hair! THAT'S pretty cool! And I think it truly does relate to shampooing after the conditioner. I still have soft and silky hair but, it's not weighed down. And with fine hair, like mine, that makes a whole heck of a lot of difference!
If you have fine hair like, that is not color treated, then I highly recommend this! All us fine haired girls are going to be in for a fun treat and say we can now go THREE whole days without washing our pretty locks!
