They say a woman’s hair is her crowning glory. In our home, with three girls, there are a lot of hairy crowns that are often less than glorious! Between, Ava, Hannah and I, there is a lot of hair, but each one of us struggles with our own unique hair concerns. 

Hannah probably has the easiest hair out of the three of us. Her hair is soft & fine with a beautiful soft curl and not a spot of frizz anywhere. Mine is slightly more difficult to manage, let’s just say that in its natural state, my hair is Jon Bon Jozi Living On A Prayer mess of frizz & unruly waves. And Ava’s is by far the MOST difficult hair to manage. This kid has enough hair on her head that we could share it between 5 women and still she’d have enough left over to share. But, her hair is coarse and frizzy and she hates it. She often cries about how in its natural state, she looks like Penny Wise! 

Finding the right hair products.


This has always been a challenge. Because my hair is coloured and Ava’s hair is so very dry, we only use paraben and sulphate free hair products, which are not always freely or easily available in pharmacies or supermarkets and they’re often very expensive too. 

So I was thrilled to receive the new TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Cleansing Conditioner to try. 

About TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Cleansing Conditioner

This is a shampoo free formula, so don’t expect to lather your scalp and hair with the product. The shampoo free formula cleanses, balances and refreshes your hair without stripping or depleting the hairs natural oils and nutrients.  Co-washing skips the sulphates that are mainly found in shampoos, instead, it uses a conditioning formula to gently lift oil and debris from the scalp and hair. Perfect for hair with volume and looser curls. The co-wash contains Marula Oil, which gives 72 hours frizz control and perfectly detangles frizzy, static hair. The co-wash will leave your hair feeling soft and with a silky shine while also taming flyaway hair. 

Available at Clicks, Dischem & Pick ‘n Pay for R79,99 for a 750ml bottle. 

My thoughts

I used the shampoo on both mine and Ava’s hair for the past week. Everyone has commented on my hair. It looks smoother and brighter and has required minimal styling.  The co-wash conditioning formula did take a little getting used to because it doesn’t lather like a traditional shampoo. But the results have been amazing. I’m especially impressed with how soft and smooth is made Ava’s coarse, dry hair. 


I’ve got two bottles of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Cleansing Conditioner to give away to two lucky readers.
