Silicone-free conditioners from Tresemme (Tresemme Naturals)

Like Tree3Likes

Has anyone else noticed these in the stores? Looks like Tresemme is coming out with a "natural" line with some silicone-free conditioners. I always found Tresemme really moisturizing before I was CG so I'm interested in trying these out. They have one for moisture and one for volume, and I might pick one up when I go grocery shopping tonight.

I don't see them listed on their website and I haven't seen ads for them, so I'm wondering if they're just testing them out in certain markets. I have some other conditioners that I'd like to get through before cracking open a new bottle, but maybe I'll do a test run and see how they work.
I have not heard anything about them.

Just bought Olive Miracle Leave-in Conditioner to try. I used it to scrunch out the crunch and it smells wonderful. (05Jun2012)

i saw them in ulta the other day and was intrigued. they also have a 'lower sulfate' shampoo line. it has ammonium laureth sulfate, which is supposedly less harsh? or, at least according to them, anyway.
Mel- 3b, blonde, normal to fine, chin-length.
I haven't seen any of the cone free conditioner, but I also used to use tresemme everyday until going CG, so I'd try a no cone version if I saw it!
Okay -- I picked up the two new conditioners I saw at the store. I took some pictures for you guys but I'm having trouble getting the pics from my phone to my computer so I'll try to get them ASAP. Here's info from each bottle:

Those look nice. The only part that concerns me is the "alcohol" and the isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol is just rubbing alcohol. Can't imagine that'd be moisturizing, but maybe since it's so near the bottom of the list it won't be a problem? Let us know how they work for you!

Yeah I was a little concerned about that too. I wonder what the purpose is? Are they using it as a preservative?
Did some more digging on the isopropyl alcohol. According to an article by the CurlChemist, it's one of the drying alcohols. Still, it doesn't seem like it would be a huge problem being at the bottom of the list. The plain "alcohol" is just ambiguous. No idea what that might be

The article talks about what its purpose in the formula may be:

Without checking my jar, I think this is the same alcohol in pink boots. It doesn't bother my hair at all but I don't use it on a daily basis.

If I'm Going To Have A Bad Hair Day, It Might As Well Be In Aruba!

Okay -- so I gave the Moisturizing formula a try and here's my take.

First and foremost -- keep in mind that I have porous, 3b hair. My hair sucks in moisture like crazy, but it also loses moisture throughout the day. What works for me might not work for someone with non-porous hair. When I showered I lowpoo'd first with Come Clean, because Sunday is my once a week lowpoo. It also helped me judge this conditioner because my hair hasn't been too dry lately (cause I bought a humidifier for my room at night) and I wanted to judge how this conditioner moisturizes without the interference of leftover moisture or buildup.

Consistency: Thick but not extremely thick. It's not runny like VO5, but will make a thick puddle in your hand rather than a GVP CB-esque blob. Similar to the consistency of Suave Naturals, I'd say.

Slip: Holy cow! This is what stood out to me most about this conditioner. I think it's fair to say that the slip could be called "extreme." My hair was a little rough from the lowpoo but when this stuff hit my hair it became extremely slick. I feel like this stuff would be a great detangler if my hair really needed it (which today it didn't). My wide-toothed comb seemed to zoom through my hair moreso than most other conditioners I've used.

Moisturizing: The jury's still out on this one. After I rinsed it out my hair still felt very slick. I'm now letting it airdry without any product in to see how this moisture holds up throughout the day. Usually by nighttime my ends feel very dry, so I'll let you guys know tomorrow whether or not this happened.

Scent: Light scent, not particularly reminiscent of anything except for hair products. Smelled more "salon-y" than you might expect from a product being advertized as natural. Not too strong or linger-y.

Well, there ya go! Hopefully this will help people decide whether they want to try this stuff out or not. Personally, I like the idea of being able to pick up a BIG bottle of CG conditioner at a drugstore -- this bottle is the size of Tresemme's other conditioners. And who knows, maybe it will make an excellent cowash or a detangler (as I mentioned above).

It's on sale this week at Walgreens.
Thanks for the review Lizz!
All right -- it's only 8pm and already the ends of my hair are feeling dry. I think this conditioner is not quite moisturizing enough for me -- hence the "lightweight conditioning" they advertise on their bottle. I think this may be a good option for the summertime, but it's not quite heavy enough to cut it as a winter condish. Maybe some other people on these boards who get weighed down or greasy easily might find this to be a good option.

*ears perk up at lightweight conditioning*

I haven't seen these anywhere. We've got the new Suave Naturals schtuff, but I haven't seen the new tresemme naturals. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Oooh thanks to the walgreens site -- its listed as being at the walgreens near my house. Will def have to try it out.

I've been to 3 Walgreens looking for it, but all they have is the shampoo. I'm hoping maybe CVS or Rite Aid might have it.
