Silicone-free conditioners from Tresemme (Tresemme Naturals)

Like Tree3Likes

Aspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid and is found in abundance in plant proteins, especially in sprouting seeds but can be manufactured in the body from oxaloacetic acid and was first isolated in 1868 from legumin in plant seed. Aspartic acid, as well as glutamic acid, is the only amino acid that has a negatively charged carboxylate group on the side chain.

lauroyl lysine. Amino acid derivative that functions as a skin- and hair-conditioning agent. It also contributes to a product’s texture by helping to gel solvents, while also remaining stable under high heat conditions (Source: Organic and Molecular Biochemistry, November 2003, pages 4124–4131).


I've been wanting to try this conditioner and my Rite Aid is having a buy 1, get 1 free on all Tresemme products. So being the nerd I am, I vaguely remember from chemistry class that lysine and aspartic acid are amino acids (a building block of protein). So I did a little online searching and found the above. Sorry I can't get the top part to unbold.
My curls are protein sensitive so now I'm not sure if I should give it a try. It seems like some of you protein sensitive curlies aren't getting any problems from it. At buy 1 get 1 I may just give it a try but I'm afraid if my hair doesn't like it, I'm gonna end up with 2 ginormous bottles of this stuff!

I like the Volumnizing condish a lot on this. I actually have a different type of hair day. The clumping is different. I've used it as a leave in too then seal it up with my butter.

When I want to pin up my hair and do some neat curly updo I love to use this!

I gave a sample to my BFF. She has extremely thick and course wavy hair. I think she'll love it because of how slippery it is. I'll let you guys know how it works out for her.

New Goals To restore my hair after dying it twice in two weeks. Learning more about products found in the stores to fit my tight budget. I'm still working on trying to grow out my hair.
I decided to give this stuff (the moisturizing one) another try as a rinse-out. Gave me dry limp hair for a week, so I think I'm gonna switch this to being a co-wash conditioner (seems like that's what most people are doing anyway) and start using something a little richer for the rinse-out.

I switched to AOWC this morning and my curls instantly perked up. Reminds me of the value of a good rinse-out!

Some things which have worked for me are using just gel in the summer (usually LA Looks or Biotera), and in the winter either using a leave-in or a curl cream (or something like KCCC) under the gel. I find that keeping my styling products simple is best. I plop when my hair gets a little longer, when my hair is shorter in some of the pics I just diffuse or air-dry. I co-wash every day and use a really rich conditioner as a rinse out (like Aubrey Organics). Once a week I lowpoo with Kinky-Curly Come Clean and then do a deep treatment afterwards with heat.

And of course, you can never go wrong with putting styling products in when your hair is still dripping wet and trying to handle it as little as possible until it's dry. Then once it's dry I scrunch out the crunch and shake my hair by the roots a little bit to add volume. Simple things like that have helped me more than anything.

You may also wanna check out the Spritz and Condish method because that gives me great hair usually, but I always forget to do it in the mornings.

ETA: I just looked at your Fotki and can't believe that you're asking me for hair advice! I love your hair! Great curl definition and shine!

So far I've tried the moisturizing conditioner and I really like it! The scent is milder than the other Tresemme conditioners that I've smelled, and that's a big plus. I like it better than the Garnier Triple Nutrition conditioner.

I've used the Nourishing Moisture one for Co and I love it. It's slippery and runny so I think it's very good for a nice CO. I also think it smells really good too!

Love plopping and air drying!
Hate blow drying (cept for my bangs which *gasp* I blow dry straight!)
For whatever reason, my hair loves the this line more than Garnier Triple Nutrition - I found this so interesting! I think it's because the GTN left my hair a little "too clean" as opposed to the Tresemme which left my hair oh-so-soft and moisturized...I wonder what that means? Maybe my hair likes protein after all??

I guess, I'll just keep it for occasional use.

I've been using this as my co-wash for about two weeks now and my hair really loves it. Worth a try.
Tried the condish and I really like it. Possibly more than One C...Gives crazy slip and super cheap! Yay!
This was a nice conditioner except for the scent. The scent is way too strong for me and lingers...and lingers. I returned the bottle today.

I like it. It doesn't have crazy slip like my other HG's but it's good. Not enough moisture after shampooing with my CV poo bar but it didn't dry out. I think this would be a great as a one step co-wash.

I've been using this conditioner for about 3 weeks now and I really like it. It provides crazy slip and it gives my hair just the right amount of moisture. I'm def plan on restocking.
Trying CG for the 2nd time. Been going strong since Feb 2010. Wish me luck!


3C/3B- still trying to figure out porosity (normal to low?) and all that other stuff. My hair seems to like protein.
Co-wash/Condish - Suave Naturals, V-05, Tresemme Naturals
DT - CJ Rehab

PT-
CJ Repair Me
Leave in - CJ Hibiscus and Banana Butta, CJ Smoothing Lotion
Styling - CK, AG Recoil, Ecostyler, The Jane Carter Solution Nourish and Shine

I'm slowly but surely becoming a Curl Junkie Junkie


This wasn't as strong as I had hoped which kind of bummed me out because the moisture kind with silicones over-conditions me in less than a week...

But it smells so good!!!!

I think I will try it again tomorrow as a cowash and see how it goes...
Hair Type: 3b /3a?.... medium texture, normal porosity

Conditioner:

Shampoo: Organix Shampoo

Other products: Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam Mousse, LA looks Sport gel, & whatever is cheapest for a frizz serum.



FYI....The Tresemme stuff is on sale at Ralph's/Kroger right now for $3.99 a bottle.

Bought some of the Moisturizing and used it.

LOVED it in the shower... great slip and felt great.

My hair, however... is DRY!

Now that I read about the protein, I'm not surprised anymore. Seems when I use stuff with protein in it, my hair feels brittle.

Guess this is headed to my straight-haired kids' bathroom.

I just saw this for the first time at Target for $3.99. Looking forward to trying it!
I am a Tresemme Naturals and Garnier Fructis JUNKIE! They are my staples.. I have to have them..

Does anyone have the Tresemme Naturals with the salon pump ??? I DO!!! I love it. I can pump and pump until my little heart is content! So convenient!

I really like that Tresemme Naturals has that little bit of protein in it.. it's just the right amount for me. And the Garnier has all those wonderful emollients. Both work just amazing in my hair. I still can't get over it!
was really disappointed.
It worked great in the shower but didn't work nearly as well as I had hoped.
I returned it.

I got the moisturizing one the other day and used it yesterday as a rinseout. I loved the slip and the smell! And I needed some slip too, since I just hennaed and when I use henna, my hair feels temporarily rough when wet (only temporarily though!) so it's hard to detangle.

I've seen that some people say the smell was subtle, and I've seen others saying it was strong and lingering. In my experience, it was strong and lingering, but it smelled really good so that's OK with me. I also love the fact that it comes in big bottles for cheap. I'm looking forward to using it again!
