I've Got The Remedy.

In a previous post, I gave you some tips on how to improve your hair condition whilst growing it out... I have something to confess, I've not exactly been following my own advice. During ten weeks of exam-leave, I didn't visit the hairdressers' even once, primarily because I didn't want to waste half a day in the salon when I had so much information to cram in so little time - I know, I deserve a big slap on my hypocritical wrist.

My refusal to go to the hairdressers' and lack of time to properly tend to my tresses meant split ends quickly appeared and began to multiply... and no amount of conditioner was helping them heal.
So, post-exams, I stumbled into town in desperate hope of finding something to help my long-suffering hair. And, being the end of term when funds were running somewhat low, I had very little money to spend on a beauty product that would do the trick.

 TRESemme Split Remedy Sealing Serum, £5.69

Enter TRESemme, who've recently brought out a line of products aimed at mending those pesky split ends... I plumped for a bottle of the serum and can tell you that I've recently just stocked up on more of the stuff - I love it! My hair looked and felt so much more smooth and shiny after just one use, and now I have trouble finding a single damaged hair on my head. Plus, it smells good enough to eat (although I wouldn't recommend you do that).

Over the years, I've tried some stupidly expensive products on my hair (including the hugely overpriced  and, frankly, overrated MoroccanOil) and this serum is proof that cost can mean very little when it comes to the effectiveness of beauty products - it actually works (unlike most of the more pricey serums), and does miraculously seal split ends and improve hair condition.

This serum is best applied to damp (not soaking wet!), combed hair and smoothed through the mid-to-end lengths. The number of pumps you require really depends on your hair length and thickness - if any guide, my hair is very long and thick, and I use 4 - 5 pumps (a little goes a very long way!). If in doubt, apply less than you think you need, as you can always apply more again later... following application of the serum, simply dry and style your hair as normal (speaking of which, I'll soon be doing a post on my take on the Chelsea Blow Dry for shiny, bouncy hair that even Kate Middleton herself would envy - so keep reading!). This serum is also great to smooth through dry hair when you get an attack of the frizzies - which is a given during this wet, rainy summer when the air is rife with moisture!
