Product Review: TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner & Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo
When I received complimentary samples of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo from Influenster.com, I was super excited to try the products out. I waited until the weekend so I could take time with doing my hair to see how it really worked. The catch of using this particular shampoo and conditioner is that you have to "reverse your routine" by using the conditioner first and the shampoo last. To give the products a fair test, I even went out and bought full size bottles of the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo after I used the sample packages. There were some definite benefits and some definite downfalls for me.
One of the benefits of using the conditioner first was that it did make my hair feel very soft after I washed it out. It even seemed to help with my split ends. Since I don't wear product in my hair very often (gel, mousse, or hairspray), my hair tends to get extremely frizzy. By using the conditioner first, it helped cut down on the frizziness in my hair, even when it was extremely humid outside.
As far as the downfalls go, the biggest one for me was that by shampooing my hair last instead of first, was that it caused my super fine hair to get extremely tangled. Being tender headed, it hurt to comb and brush the tangles out so that I could blow dry my hair. The other downfall was that even though it was supposed to give my hair some volume, it didn't give it as much volume as their normal volume shampoo and conditioner.
Overall, I think the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo is a really good product. It just wasn't for me. I love TRESemmé products and still buy some of their other shampoos and conditioners.
