Tresemme naturals event and hairstyling tips

Last week I was invited to Soho for the launch of the new haircare range from Tresemme. The event was held in a very decorative church and on arrival, we were greeted by Matthew Curtis, a stylist who has worked on fashion shows, tv programmes as well as celebrities such as Cheryl Cole.

The evening started with a brief presentation about the new haircare range, followed by hairstyling demonstrations and tips from Matthew.

The shampoos in this new range contain lower sulphates to prevent hair from drying out and the conditioners are silicon free so that they rinse out easily. They also contain organic extracts of aloe vera, sweet orange, jojoba, coconut oil and avacodo oil to protect against damage as well as adding moisture and shine to the hair.

After the presentation, we were given demonstrations on how to style hair, as well as tips on how to use the products.

For curly haired girls, he suggested a messy up do, where you simply pin up half of the hair at the back of the head, then messily twist the hair back on itself and pin the ends, so that they are mostly hidden. Finally use a few spritz of hairspray to keep it all in place.

For girls that have straight hair, like myself, he suggested splitting the hair into two, twist it onto itself whilst wet, then leave overnight for loose waves in the morning, which can then be worn down or pinned up into the messy up do.

He also demonstrated how to do a neat bun. To start off, apply some mousse to near dry hair then do a long plait at the back. (A good tip is to have the mousse in your hands until it feels a little sticky then work it into your hair for maximum effect). Finally wrap the plait around itself to form a bun and use pins and some hairspray to secure.

I've yet to try the mousse and hairspray but the shampoo and conditioner smells so nice and fresh! The shampoo foams up well although I do need to spend a few minutes to ensure its rinsed away properly and the conditioner leaves my hair soft and smooth without weighing it down.

Have you tried the new Naturals range from Tresemme? What are your top hair styling tips?

  1. Those are great tips. I usually twist my hair into a messy bun while its damp and then unravel it a few hours later for natural waves. The "Naturals" range sounds fab, will have to look out for it next time I'm in Boots. x
