TRESemmé Split Remedy - Repair Up To 80% Of Split Ends For A Fresh-Cut Look And Feel Every Day


Hey ladies! I know I did not post yesterday and it feels weird because I'm used to post every day (except on the weekend) but I'm contemplating starting to update my blog every two days because it's just so time consuming - I thought I would have more free time because of the strike at uni, but to make up for it, I have started working full-time, which is great but my job is manual and so, at the end of the day, I'm just exhausted. I hope you will continue to read my blog and enjoy it just as much though!

I have been spoiled rotten by TRESemmé - when they asked me if I would like to try some of their new products, I never expected them to send me the whole Split Remedy line! The Split Remedy products, formulated with a revolutionary Reconstructing Complex, claim to repair up to 80% of the split ends you have in just three uses, and with continued use, the salon-quality formula continues to bind split ends for a smooth look that lasts and keeps working to help prevent new splits from occurring - wow! Yes, I was sceptical too, but believe me, these products really work. Of course, you can't really repair split ends until your cut your hair, but the Split Remedy products really does help to tame them and make them look smoother and more polished.

I'm not sure I have ever been disappointed by TRESemmé products (although I have a love/hate relationship with their Fresh Start Dry Shampoo) and I do think they are amazing quality for the price and despite not having to deal with absolutely horrific split ends, I could not wait to try all of these products! 


The Split Remedy Shampoo ($4.99USD) is light without being runny and it does produce a nice rich lather without too much work - I know we have to get over the idea that a product has to lather to properly clean, but still, it's hard to say where I have put shampoo if I can't feel it! I consider my hair long (past my shoulders but above my breasts) and moderately thick, and I need a decent quantity of shampoo to be able to properly clean my crown area, which tends to give me trouble with almost every shampoo I use. I like how squeaky clean the Spit Remedy Shampoo leaves my hair every time. 

I tend to be a bit fussy when it comes with conditioners - I could not care less for the runny mess most of them are and for this reason, I favor hair masks most of the time, but I was positively surprised by the Split Remedy Conditioner ($4.99USD). It has the perfect texture that every conditioner should have - thick enough not to spill everywhere in the shower, yet it seems to melt when it comes in contact with the hair. I appreciate when I don't have to use half of the bottle of conditioner to feel my hair properly coated with product, which is why I love this conditioner so much. It leaves my hair softer, smoother and nicely moisturized withtout weighting it down. Both the Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner smell of green apple, which is absolutely delightful! Also, I think those two products come in pretty big bottles for the price.

I usually tend to favor products that are thicker in texture than a spray for a leave-in conditioner, but the Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Spray ($4.49USD) performs well. It is very light and did not leave my hair sticky - in fact, I could barely feel that I had put a product on my hair! I don't typically have to deal with tangles or knots in my hair, but this product allowed me to brush my hair very easily, leaving it smooth and shiny.

Even though I don't have to deal with frizz (very fortunately for me), the Split Remedy Leave-In Split End Conditioning Treatment ($4.49USD) must be my favorite products of the line. It is designed to help potect your hair from the damaging effects of styling including breakage, frizz and dryness and it can be used on wet or dry hair. Although I prefer to use it on wet hair for a deeper conditioning, I'm sure it would work great on dry hair too because it's so lightweight, which is totally unexpected for such an amazingly moisturizing product. It never fails to leave my hair super shiny and silky and easier to manage.

The Split Remedy Split End Sealing Serum ($4.49USD) was the product I was the most excited to try but even though it works well at smoothing my hair and making the ends look more polished, it just does not leave it as shiny as I was expecting, but maybe it's just me!

I think it's a little unclear whether you are supposed to use all of the products at once, one after the other, or only one of the three everytime you wash your hair, but I didn't not want to take the risk to be left with limp greasy hair so I stucked to one different product at every wash, and it worked well.

I don't think I have the worst hair around to start with - it is naturally straight but it dries a bit wavy (I never blow dry it) and it just does not look polished without a little help from my heating tools, which I'm trying to avoid as much as I can and I have been doing really well for the pat couples of months. However, I was not prepared to be blown away by the results of weeks of use of the Split Remedy line...

L - R: Before and after TRESemmé Split Remedy

As you can see from the above pictures, my hair usually dries pretty wavy and it just looks dull and damaged. What a difference TRESemmé Split Remedy made! Another that really made me realize how well these products work is when I stopped using them altogether to test other products. My hair just did not look as smoothed and polished as when I was using the Split Remedy products. When I returned to the TRESemmé products, the magic happened again!

Overall, I think TRESemmé Split Remedy products are an amazing inexpensive solution if you are looking for a temporary solution to "hide" your split ends and don't want to get your hair cut!

  3. Great review. I love hearing about new collections from inexpensive brands such as Suave, Tresemme, etc.
    I am always weary about "Split End Remedies" because there is really no way of getting rid of split ends besides getting your hair cut right?

  7. @Josianne Lamontagne: Bin voyons?! Est-ce qu'ils sont secs? Fais-tu des masques régulièrement? Je n'ai jamais eu les cheveux mêlés de ma vie mais j'avoue que j'en prends grand soin!

    @Mybe : Je ne sais vraiment pas ce qui peut causer ça... te laves-tu les cheveux tous les jours? Je n'ai pas eu ce problème avec ce shampooing et je me lave les cheveux à peu près aux trois jours...

    @Dani : You are absolutely right, that's why I was sceptical at first, but these products actually do a pretty good job at concealing the split ends by binding them. With continuous uses, my split ends became invisible! I'm seriously in love with these products!

    @Mrs.Makeup : Their leave-in products are my favorite too, they all work amazingly well.

    @Elizabeth King : I'm sure these products will help (:

    @Ahleessa: I still think their packaging scream unprofessional but oh well!

  13. I have worked with hair products as a stylist for 30 years. I have use a;; expensive to inexpensive products! After using the Shielo Sealing Mist on my clients for the last 2 years - I noticed that it was also healing their split ends. Even on really short or really long styles. Besides the fact that it smells great, my clients hair soft and alot easier to comb through.

  14. Hey gaby, for some reason this product doesn't work to my hair. I used every single TREsemme split-remedy collection, from shampoo to the sealing serum. It even cause my hair dry and rough even more than before. I don't have much choice, except to cut it off. But thanks for sharing Gaby!, such a great post.

    Love,
