7 Days of Smooth and Frizz-Free Hair
I would describe my weekly schedule as chaotic and unpredictable. As a blogger and actress, I have the luxury of not working a traditional 9-5 job; however, that also means that I have to be ready at a moment’s notice to run to an audition or stay up late to meet a blog deadline. My friends and family can attest to the fact that I can think that I’ll have the entire week off and then end up working nearly everyday, all-day the entire week on last minute jobs. Don’t get me wrong…I love my jobs. In fact, if I’m being honest, I do love not knowing what opportunities will pop up that week. Since I never know what to expect each day (and because both jobs require me to look decent on-camera), I need to be able to get ready in minutes. Having long hair complicates this situation because it takes so long to style. Let me introduce you to a new line of products that helps you shave precious minutes (or maybe even hours) off your daily routine: the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection. The TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection contains a shampoo, conditioner, and heat-activated treatment that combine to keep your hair smooth and frizz-free longer, which means less time spent washing, drying, and styling.
To use the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection, start by washing your hair with the Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner. I found the lower-sulfate shampoo to lather extremely well, and it thoroughly cleansed while still retaining moisture. The conditioner left my hair smooth and soft without sacrificing any volume. I’d recommend this set of hair products on their own merit, but you’ll need the heat-activated treatment to really allow the 7 Day Smooth System to shine.
While your hair is still wet, apply 8-10 pumps of the heat activated treatment and blowdry as usual. The treatment is lightweight and didn’t leave my hair greasy or flat. After drying your hair, flat iron your hair in sections to activate the treatment. After my completing the treatment, my hair was smooth, shiny, frizz-free, and incredibly soft.
I wore my hair straight on Day One to run errands to prepare for the week. As you can see from the picture, we were having a windy day. Despite the cold winds, my hair stayed straight and didn’t frizz. Normally when I wake up with second day hair, my hair is either frizzy or bent in strange directions, but on Day Two of the 7 Day Smooth System my hair looked about the same as the day before. I added loose curls for a day full of meetings and preparations for the next day. I may have felt like a mess from running around town, but my hair looked fabulous…and isn’t that half the battle, girls?
On Day Three, I had an extremely early call time for a commercial shoot. I was exhausted when my alarm rang, and the last thing I wanted to do was sacrifice hours of sleep to style my hair. I used my cell phone (too lazy to get out of bed) to see how my hair looked, and to my surprise it looked just fine. I still had waves left from the day before, so I decided to skip the shower and sleep another hour.
At the shoot, I was outside in the sun and humidity all day long and even got in the water for a bit. My third day hair actually looked good the entire day until I dived in the pool. By the end of Day 3, I was already a fan of the shampoo, conditioner, and treatment. I was so exhausted after my commercial shoot that I hopped in the shower and quickly washed my hair before falling asleep. With the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth system, you only need to apply the Heat Activated Treatment and flat iron your hair every seven days, so I still had the smoothing effects of the treatment after only applying the shampoo and conditioner.
Day 4 was spent prepping blog posts around my apartment, so I was obviously walking around my apartment in my favorite outfit, pajamas and a topknot accessorized with a Diet Coke.
With a few quick twirls of my curling wand, my hair was refreshed for Day 5 and ready for a day of filming. I was playing a college student that day, so loose curls, light makeup, and casual clothes were the outfit of the day. The weather was gray, cold, and slightly rainy, but my normally unruly hair surprisingly minded its manners all day long. My curls didn’t fall, my hair didn’t frizz, and quickly brushing through my hair revived its volume- basically a hair miracle.
Day 6 and 7 have been a blur of phone calls, blog planning, and prepping for yet another commercial shoot, so there was literally no time for hair styling. Both days were again miserably gray and rainy, so up-dos were in order; however, I totally would have and could have worn my hair down if I knew that it wouldn’t be dripping wet. I woke up each day with nice hair- definitely not my usual experience. I normally wash my hair every three days, but I managed to last four days after washing my hair this last time with the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth system.
If you are on-the-go person like me, I highly recommend trying out the TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth system. In addition to keeping your hair smooth and frizz-free, it helps to reduce the time it takes you to get ready each morning. For the past week, my hair has looked great despite minimal upkeep and no additional products- not even hairspray. I’ll definitely keep trying the system and keep you posted on my continued results!
