The cute little tube is easy to break open, even in the shower, providing enough formula for even thick or long hair - this was enough for me to cover my lengths and ends twice over. The formula is light and easy to manipulate around the hair, but didn't provide the creamy depth I anticipated from a treatment that claims to work in a minute. After leaving it on for a little longer than necessary, my hair did feel super smooth in the shower after rinsing it through. It was easy to dry and style, but significantly I did find my hair lacked the lustre and shine I'd been achieving with my normal conditioner. Did this provide me with a shot of intense keratin to really get my hair looking healthy, as claimed? Absolutely not. As far as I'm concerned, this is simply a little tube of their conditioner that's being marketed as an intense problem solver - it simply didn't deliver. The usual Tresemme conditioners retail around £4.99 for a 900ml giant bottle, whereas this comes in at £1.49 for a 15ml tube; if we compare the prices, the shampoo works out at 27p per 100ml, but the 60 second treatment calculates out as a whopping £8.94 for 100ml - there's simply no comparison.
In my opinion, save your pennies and just opt for a better conditioner to start with that will help hair on a daily basis. Even better, just pay a visit to your hairdresser and spend a little more on getting a specialist professional treatment that you'll really be able to see the impact of. Sorry Tresemme, I'm sticking to shots of vodka.
The Keratin Smooth shots launch nationwide late July, priced £1.49 for a 15ml tube.
