Product Review Alert! TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo & Conditioner

I'll admit it; I'm a bit of a hair snob. I consider it to be one of my best assets, since I was blessed with a ton of super-thick hair that is generally in healthy condition. I have been a loyal user of Biolage products over the past three years, because it kept my hair soft and protected my hair color at the same time.

I was skeptical, then, when I was given the opportunity to try the new TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo and Conditioner. I have never been impressed with any "drug store brand" shampoos or conditioners,  so I pretty much expected the same results from TRESemmé. When I first received the products, my hair was in desperate need of a color touch up. Since I have been growing it out over the past year or so, I had also noticed some split ends, so I wasn't really expecting miracle results.

The first use was definitely impressive! Even though it had not been colored in 6 weeks, my hair had that soft, silky, just-colored feeling and texture. I was happy just with those results, but figured I better reserve my actual opinion for when I had a chance to use it on freshly colored hair to see how the color protection worked. 

My color touch up was almost 2 weeks ago, when  I reviewed the Clairol Nice & Easy Color Foam. I have been using the TRESemmé since then, and I have not noticed any fading. My hair is still shiny and soft like I just colored it. Another thing I noticed is that I didn't get a lot of the color washout in my first post-color washing. For those familiar with hair color, you know that you usually see a lot of color in the water upon your first washing. I only had a tiny amount when I used these products.

I know we are all on a budget these days, so if you are a hair snob looking to shave your beauty budget, these are definitely worth a try at about $4.49 per bottle.
