Every few months, I get a box of goodies from a site called Influenster. In case you’ve never heard of the site before, you can sign up on Influenster to review products from major companies in exchange for honest reviews.
A couple months back I received a box from Influenster and Tresemme called the Reverse Your Routine box. It included one bottle each of the Tresemme Beauty-FULL Volume shampoo and conditioner. I was super excited to try it because since I had kids, my hair has totally morphed from being full and bouncy to being thin and flat. The unique thing about the Tresemme Beauty-FULL Volume shampoo and conditioner is that you use them in the reverse order you normally would. Normally you’d apply your shampoo and then rinse it out before applying your conditioner. With this product, you apply the conditioner first and then shampoo. It’s supposed to help keep your hair from feeling weighed down from too much conditioner left on your strands, resulting in shinier, more voluminous hair.
The first thing I noticed about my products is that my conditioner arrived with a broken pump. I was annoyed because that forced me to have to unscrew the lid and squeeze a little into my hand directly from the bottle, which led to a couple of spills in the shower. However, I didn’t gripe much because I still received full sized bottles of product from Tresemme to try for nothing! My hair is short, so I squeezed a half-dollar sized amount into my hand and worked it into the lower half of my hair. I let it sit for a minute or two while I washed my body, then I applied the Tresemme Beauty-FULL Volume shampoo to my hair directly on top of the conditioner, as directed on the little card I received in the Influenster box. I used my fingers to massage it into my hair and scalp and then rinsed it with luke warm water, finishing with a quick rinse with cool water before exiting the shower.
The first time I used it, I noticed an immediate change in my hair. My hair was super soft and definitely had more volume than I got using my old brand. My hair was shiny and looked really healthy, the way hair always looks when you use new styling products for the first time. However, after using the product for a week straight, I could still tell a difference in the weight of my hair and the shine. Even my husband noticed that my hair looked healthier and had more bounce than usual.
It has been a little over a month since I started using the Tresemme Beauty-FULL Volume shampoo and conditioner and I’m still very happy with the way my hair looks and performs. It holds its shape when styled, and looks healthy even between washes. I’m not having to use dry shampoo as much as before, either.
I definitely recommend this product collection to anyone with fine, oily hair.
