Review: TRESemme Naturals Moisture Conditioner

Disclosure: PR sample

I'm really liking this new trend that's seeing big, accessible brands bringing out silicone free products.  TRESemme, known for their slightly dubious "professional" moniker and very well priced products, are the latest to do so with their new "Naturals" products.  I'm not sure that their natural credentials are really worth much of a song and dance - some of the ingredients are organic, there are no parabens or silicones, and the products have "lower" sulphates.  But really, if you're looking for an all-out organic product, TRESemme is not a brand you'd look to.

So, what exactly do you look to TRESemme for?  For me, the answer to that is in their 900ml bottles, and their teeny tiny prices.  And indeed, this is the best priced silicone free conditioner I've tried, weighing in at just £5.39 for 900ml.  For that price, you get a conditioner which has a decent amount of slip, which is a definite bonus, as some silicone free conditioners can be particularly difficult to distribute through the hair.  The texture is reasonably thick, yet still quite light and spreadable, and I've not had to use great big dollops of the conditioner to saturate my hair.

One of my favourite things about this conditioner is the scent.  It's fresh, slightly citrus-y, and has that generic edge that's not going to attract a lot of attention.  It sounds strange, but my hair just smells clean and fresh after use.  It also fades within an hour or so.

Used for co-washing, the conditioner provides a little bit of lather and leaves the hair feeling very clean, shiny, and very fresh - this isn't a heavy conditioner that will weigh the hair down.  Applied to my mid lengths and ends, my dry, colour-treated hair was left feeling a tad under-moisturised - not overly so, but this product isn't going to quench very dry ends.

Will I be buying this again?  You bet I will.  For the price, you won't find a lighter and more usable silicone free conditioner on the market, which makes it an ideal choice for those of you who, like me, wash your hair with conditioner.  It would also make an excellent choice for those with normal or slightly dry hair as a regular conditioner for use on the mid lengths and ends.  If you want a silicone free conditioner, I'd highly recommend you try this.

Also included in the range is the corresponding Moisture shampoo, Smooth shampoo and conditioner, a hairspray, and a mousse.  If you'd like to have a go for yourself, you'll find all the products at Superdrug - this conditioner will cost £5.39 for 900ml.


  1. I've been looking into co-washing quite a bit lately but have yet to take the plunge. I'm thinking of doing it when I've run out of shampoo completely so I won't be tempted to use it!
    If co-washing is the way forward for me, will definitely need to look into TRESemme again. Huge bottles are a must.

  2. I've seen so many great reviews of this new range - I've never actually used any tresseme shampoos or conditioners before, but I might have to give this new one a whirl. I'm also glad we are finally seeing some more accessible sulphate free stuff on the market too!
