TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo Review

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo Review

My only regret with Tresemme hair products is that I should have started using it way before. For the longest time, I tried everything to straighten my curly hair which only made it more dry as a result. Once I tried to focus on making my natural texture shine things started getting better. I have extremely dry and frizzy curly hair and the only way they look good naturally is when they are heavily moisturized.

The first Tresemme product I tried was the Tresemme Keratin Hair Mask, it worked so well for me that I decided to buy their shampoo from the same range. One of the best things about this shampoo is that it has a low sulfate quantity. Sulphate is heavily added into shampoos so that they create heavy foam but the bad thing is they strip your scalp off of its natural oil and dry out the natural coating of your hair. This is why color-treated shampoos are different as the regular ones end up fading the coating of the color.

What Is It?

Tresemme’s Keratin Smooth Shampoo with Argan Oil blends the strength of keratin with the nourishing qualities of argan oil, featuring a reduced sulfate formula. This formulation not only promotes straighter and smoother hair but also effectively manages frizz for up to 3 days. With its lower sulfate content, it is suitable for both natural and chemically treated hair.

Performance of Tresemme Keratin Shampoo

Scent: It has that classic Tresemme scent with a subtle floral undertone. While the fragrance is slightly potent, it might be overwhelming for some individuals. The scent lingers throughout the entire day.

Packaging: The Tresemme Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Shampoo is packaged in a robust yet flexible opaque maroon plastic bottle, featuring a secure black press-open cap. The bottle design ensures ease of product extraction, and the well-locked cap prevents any leaks or spills, maintaining a mess-free experience. Available in various sizes, the compact nature of this smallest packaging makes it convenient and travel-friendly. Detailed product information can be found on the back of the bottle.

Formula: The shampoo is kinda creamy but also a bit runny. It’s all white and has this little pearly shine to it. It glides smoothly on my scalp, but I’d recommend adding a splash of water before applying. It lathers up nicely and does a great job getting rid of dirt and oil from my scalp. I usually go for about two turns as I have thick shoulder-length hair.

Result: I absolutely adore this shampoo! It’s been a game-changer for my curly hair, and the best part is how effortlessly I can detangle my hair after using Tresemme’s Keratin line. Anyone with curly hair understands what a relief it is to achieve these results without breaking the bank.

Final Thoughts

Tresemme’s Keratin Shampoo has become my go-to for managing my curly and frizzy hair. It works wonders in taming the unruly curls, leaving them smooth and more manageable. However, I did notice that when dealing with heavily oiled hair, a substantial amount of shampoo was needed to thoroughly cleanse and remove the oil. This could be a consideration for those who regularly oil their hair, as it might lead to quicker depletion of the product. Despite this, the overall effectiveness in taming my curls makes it a worthwhile choice, especially for those seeking a solution for curly or frizz-prone hair. Here are my final pros and cons of this shampoo:


  1. Budget-friendly
  2. Available in various sizes.
  3. Efficient cleansing
  4. Leaves hair frizz-free and smooth
  5. Keeps hair moisturized


  1. Not SLS free
  2. Has fragrance
  3. Not for oily scalp and fine hair

Does Tresemme Keratin Shampoo Straighten Hair?

This shampoo doesn’t have any straightening effect on hair. It only makes curly hair frizz-free and smooth. It majorly helps in detangling of the hair. If I could have frizz-free, shiny, and bouncy curls, I wouldn’t worry too much about straightening it anyway.

Will I Purchase It Again?

I’m definitely repurchasing this shampoo. In fact, the duo of this shampoo and the Tresemme hair mask is a combination I won’t be parting with anytime soon. The results are just too good to pass up, making it a staple in my hair care routine for the long haul.
