Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner Review

By Airene Guha

I was very excited to try this shampoo and conditioner that I have received recently. The word keratin specially attracted my attention. I am very much conscious and careful about my hair. Hence, I do not try or trust hair products quickly. But in this case it is completely different. The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner attracted my attention at the very sight and I decided to try it. So, here I present you my very first review about Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner.

Get that look straight from Cannes from Tresemme


As much as we adore the stateside red carpet scene, there's just something so undeniably glamorous about the annual Cannes Film Festival. Cannes attracts the who's who of the Hollywood, fashion and entertainment fraternity and witness stars perfectly styled from head to toe.

TRESemmé’s stylist, Marcus Francis has drawn a list of the best red carpet hairstyles spotted at Cannes 2014. From sleek ponytails to elegant updos, he shows you how to achieve the season’s most glamorous looks at home!

Blake Lively’s Messy braid 



During the 'Grace of Monaco' premiere Blake teamed her silk-chiffon Gucci gown with a tousled braid. This artfully unkempt ponytail was the perfect match for the geometric neckline of her oxblood gown. Wash and condition your hair with TRESemmé Split Remedy shampoo and conditioner. Side part your wet hair braiding the larger section of hair, framing your face. On the crown of your hair, go for a deep part on the opposite side of the braid. Curl the loose strands on either sides of the part and seal with a hair spray.

My Skin Care Routine with Oriflame Oxygen Boost Optimals White Range

I had updated about my skincare routine a few months back. However, the weather was not that humid and sweaty at that time and I could afford to use beauty oils and other thicker products for my skin. In short I could stick to layering skin care routine. But as it is summer now, and very sweaty, I wanted to keep my skin care routine limited to few products. And of course, as my skin is combination and tends to be quite oily during summers, I wanted specific products that would not turn my skin greasy.
