Review: Tresemme Botanique Damage Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner *

While I like Tresemme products (their styling stuff is awesome!), I don't have the best of luck with their shampoos and conditioners, I like their Undone range, but my scalp got crazily itchy when I tried their shampoo and conditioner duo, making it difficult to love it. Hence, when I was given the chance to try their Botanique Damage Recovery range, I was quite cautious about it. I am happy to report, however, that my skin, and hair, have both benefited from constant use of this pair!

This claims to reclaim the appearance of healthy looking hair, delivering shine, smoothness, humidity and frizz control. They contain macadamia oil, wheat protein and avocado oil, all designed to repair the damaged cuticles. 

The bottles are easy to use, with a lid that pops on one side once you push down on other side, and they are also coloured differently, which means that you're less likely to pick up the conditioner thinking that it's the shampoo and vice versa. Both of them have a medium, runnier than not, consistency. The shampoo lathers up beautifully, making it feel like you're actually getting a good clean with it, while the conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft and smooth. This also smells very vaguely coconutty, but definitely not a distraction, and definitely not bad (I'm not a coconut fan).

The best part? What I love about this is the bounce and body that I'm left with, and this is with hair oil in my hair, rubbed in as it's drying. How amazing is that? I've always been a sucker for hair that has a bit of oomph, and this has delivered so well! I know that it isn't just the conditioner either, as I've been able to reproduce similar results when they have been used separately - bonus!

These retail for $6.99 and $10.99 for 390 ml and 750 ml respectively and can be found at pharmacies and supermarkets.

Have you used Tresemme products before? What's your favourite range and would you try this?
