Product Review: TRESemme Salon Silk Serum

Many of you know this by now, but I'm a huge fan of the TRESemme brand for hair care. My hair is normal thickness, but really fine so I prefer products that promote body, and are lightweight. I bought this product a few months ago and have been using it weekly. I bought it with the thought that this might be similar to the Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum, which I've used for years, but the TRESemme is a fifth of the price.

From their site:

How it works:
Helps protect hair before & after drying.
Detangles & conditions all hair types without weighing hair down.

How to use:
Apply evenly to damp hair, concentrating on the lengths & ends.
Comb through with a wide tooth comb to avoid breakage.
Do not rinse out.
Dry & style as usual. Can also be used on dry hair for added softness and shine.

Typically I use 4-5 pumps on my wet hair, whether I blow dry it or let it dry naturally, and focus the product on the nape of my neck down. I also love to use it on dry hair, it's perfect on day 3 (or 4) hair, when my hair is beginning to puff out and frizz. That's really my favorite feature of this serum. Two pumps of this bad boy and I'm back to sleek, shiny hair!

Here's why I'll buy it again and again:
- Lightweight, doesn't leave a film in your hair
- Smells great
- 1 pump isn't a lot of product, I hate products that spit out a ton at once
- Leaves hair really silky and not greasy whatsoever
- Totally identical to the Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum I used forever, my hunch was dead-on (IMHO- in my humble opinion)
- Is the perfect product for dry and unwashed hair

Overall, I couldn't be happier with it. It's such a great price ($3.99) and does exactly what it's supposed to. I really think it would be perfect for all hair types and 100% recommend it to everyone. Another great score TRESemme!

Have you tried skinny serum before? Which product is your favorite?

The texture of your hair is exactly like mine, plus let's just go ahead and throw oily into the mix, gag! I need to look into more products for hair care and you and Ali {Pink Lou Lou} I trust haha. I swear by Tresemme Triple Hold hairspray. What do you think of Morrocan oil?
