Review: Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo - smoother and visibly straighter hair without hassle!

Hello Pretty Ladies,

Hope you all are doing great!

I have a lot of things happening in my life and hence not getting much time to blog. I apologize for being MIA. I will keep posting on and off though. Hope you all will support me as always! On a lighter note, I saw 2 states on Friday and quite liked it. Loved everyone's acting in the film. Got to see a light, fresh movie after a long time so I am happy :D Well, coming back to the post, I am reviewing Tresemme's Keratin Smooth Shampoo which I have been using for more than 2 months and liking it as it gives me smoother and softer hair as compared to other shampoos I have tried in recent times which claim to do the same. So let's check out how this shampoo worked for me.

Read on to find out more.

Product Description (from official website):

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo transforms your hair to be smoother and easier to style. Infused with Keratin it rescues hair from the brink of unruly despair. Containing lower sulphates compared to other TRESemmé products, TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo leaves hair clean, shiny and manageable.

How it works:
THE FORMULATION: This gentle, lower-sulphate** shampoo is infused with smoothing keratin. 
THE EFFECT: The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth shampoo and conditioner system transforms your hair, making it gorgeously sleek with less frizz*, smooth and easy to style. 

Price: 80 INR for 90 ml, 170 INR for 225 ml and 349 INR for 600 ml.

Buy online on Nykaa here or Flipkart here.

Shelf Life: 36 months.


The packaging is sturdy and I like the color combination of red and black. It has a flip open and close top which is convenient to use. The 600 ml variant comes in a pump dispenser bottle. I am reviewing the 225 ml variant here.

My Experience with Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo:

In my experience, no shampoo can ever make your hair straight. A shampoo can give you smooth hair which appear straight but don't expect miracles of straightening from this shampoo. This is definitely not a substitute for your straightening irons. I am loving this shampoo as it makes my hair satiny smooth and it also adds volume to my limp oily hair. Since it makes hair soft, they appear visibly straight. It controls frizz to a greater extent when used alone and completely tames the hair when used with a conditioner. It gives excellent results initially but my hair started getting accustomed to it and hence it did not make them as smooth and soft as it used to initially. So I switched to a clarifying shampoo for few days and started using it again and it worked as before :D Since it has lower sulphate levels, it is less harmful as compared to other shampoos which are loaded with SLS and other chemicals but still it is not completely chemical free. It is easy to wash off and cleans scalp and hair very well leaving them soft and smooth. It lathers well and a single pump is enough to rinse medium length hair. All in all this is a good shampoo if you are in search of a shampoo that makes your hair soft and puts back life into limp oily hair.


* Makes hair soft and smooth.
* Has lesser SLS content as claimed by the brand.
* Gives appearance of straight hair as it makes them soft.
* Controls frizz and tames fly-aways.
* Easy to rise and easy to wash off.
* Lathers well.
* Affordable and available in 3 different sizes which gives you freedom to test before using the full variant.


* Contains chemicals.
* Stops giving excellent results after continuous use hence a clarifying shampoo has to be used after which it starts showing results again.

Would I recommend this product?

Yes! you can try the smallest variant to check if it suits your hair. It works well on my hair and I love the results.

Would I repurchase this product?

I am already on my second bottle so I might :)

My Rating: 4/5

I think this is the best shampoo from the various range of shampoos and conditioners that Tresemme has. I am loving the results especially after using a conditioner. Yet to try the conditioner from the same range. I believe that will give even better results.
