Beauty: Seven Days of Saving Time with TRESemme

Mar 7, 2014

Quick PSA: Yay for Friday!

It’s no secret (i’ve mentioned it many a time around these parts) or surprise that the mornings are a little tricky for me. For one, it’s not that I’m not a morning person, it just takes me a little longer than most to get going. I can rise and shine with the best of them but it’s going to take me a good fifteen to twenty minutes to really hit my stride. This wasn’t a problem when all I had to do was get my lazy butt out the door but now that I’m tasked with getting a very opinionated and strong willed tiny human out the door (with a lunch and nine times out of ten, some other sort of school obligation), it’s a bit more difficult. So when I can find a decent short-cut for my morning routine, I embrace it wholeheartedly.

Here’s where the focus of today’s post comes in. Last week,  TRESemmé asked me to try out their 7 Day Keratin Smooth Collection which promises to keep your tresses looking polished for a week or up to three washes. Um, did you say cut-down on my hair routine? Because if so, I’m down to try just about anything – well, except for cutting it (I know, I know, it saves time but I can’t bear to do it right now). I have a ton of hair, not necessarily thick hair but just a lot of it, which makes blow-drying and styling a serious time sucker. So when the offer to try out the shampoo, conditioner and styling treatment came in – I was a very willing participant.

Today I’m on day three (was hoping to have tried for a full week but this stuff was hard to find! sold out at two Walgreen’s before finding it at CVS) and I’m sold.

Here’s how it works:

So it may take you a tiny bit longer that first morning but afterwards, your locked in for way more manageable hair for the rest of the week.  I can have a serious case of the frizzies and this helped keep things looking smooth and sleek without all the frizz madness.  Luckily for me, I gave this a go during a week where I was crazy busy running from work to meetings to events and random kid obligations. I never had to worry about throwing my hair into the dreaded a.m. ponytail and it definitely saved me some time on my routine (praise the lord, I made it out of my house by 8 am this morning – I think it was the first time I have been early for car pool in months).

Here’s a look at the locks today:

p.s. – I tried to take some snaps this morning but the a.m. puffy pregnant face was nothing fit to share with the interwebs. 

Long {hair} story short, I’m thinking this is going to be my new weekly routine (you know, if I remember!).
