Last week, Dhany, Sarah, Anggi, myself, along with some friends from the Female Daily forum and a handful of beauty bloggers got a chance to experience the TRESemme Keratin Treatment at Anna Wijaya Hair Salon at Grand Indonesia. I could tell from the excitement on everyone’s faces that we were going to enjoy the new TRESemme Keratin Smooth products and have a good time just chit-chatting with each other. It was definitely a very nice way to spend the evening. TRESemme has launched TRESemme Keratin Smooth, the newest variant in the market that will be available in October this year. They offer five products from this line that will help to calm frizzy hair. Yes, you read it right: TRESemme Keratin Smooth is specially targeted for people with hair that’s difficult to manage. So if you’re confused about how to find the hair product that will make your mane look good, you need to look no further than this, ladies. Ms. Anna Wijaya, the owner or Anna Wijaya Hair Salon, also came that day to welcome all of us and give a gift voucher to each one of us! I’m looking forward to the day when I can enjoy another treatment at Anna Wijaya. The tips we got from that experience is that we only need a small but adequate amount of TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo to wash our hair. I usually put a generous amount when I lather my hair because I love lots of foam; but since TRESemme Keratin Smooth products contain keratin proteins that will help smooth the hair, it’s recommended to use a modest amount. Even if you feel the suds aren’t as foamy as they would usually be on your crown, rest assured that that’s enough. If you have semi-manageable hair like me, the hairstylist suggested to use just TRESemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner on the follicle ends. If you have very frizzy hair, then use the conditioner from your ear’s length down to the end of the hair shaft. Don’t use it on your scalp because it can cause excessive oil in that area. After shampooing and conditioning, we got a chance to request what kind of hairstyle we wanted. Some of us wanted curly hair, some of us wanted big waves, but all I needed was a good old-fashioned blowout for my short hair. If you use a hair dryer or curling iron on a daily basis, TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray is also definitely a must-have! My TRESemme Keratin Treatment ended when the hairstylist added TRESemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hair Spray to keep my bangs in shape. Some girls probably got a chance to experience TRESemme Hair Mousse, but since I wanted my hair to look natural and not too stiff, I asked the hairstylist to spray my bangs that are oh-so-prone to falling on my face and just a modest amount to hold the volume of my hair. The bonus was also great: everyone got fresh manicures at Anna Wijaya! With our hair done and nails done, we moved to Kempinski Hotel for dinner. Our host, Nadia Mulya, gave us a very warm welcome and started the second session of the event: a talk show. TRESemme invited Chandra Gupta, a professional hairstylist who shared his observations about hairstyles in Indonesia. Indonesian women love to style their hair, which usually includes coloring, curling, and straightening. Most of us already know how to use a hair-dryer and curling iron to get what we want, but what we tend to ignore is how using heating tools can also cause further damage to unmanageable hair–and this is where keratin steps in as an ingredient to help protect our ‘do. Brand Manager of TRESemme Indonesia, Dafina Amalina, also added how TRESemme Keratin Smooth products are an easy solution for Indonesian women to help restore hair conditions so that their hair is smoother and easier to manage every day. We can also do our own styling at home with these products. Vivi Tri Andari, as Technical Management Manager of PT. Unilever Indonesia, Tbk, explained that “Keratin is a structural protein which is the main component of the hair. Keratin in our hair can be damaged by the process of hair styling, the use of chemical ingredients on the hair, or combing the hair roughly. This damage on the keratin layer causes unhealthy hair and makes hair dry, frizzy and unmanageable. Regular use of the series of TRESemme Keratin Smooth that contains Keratin help coat the hair strand and restore the hair condition to silky, soft, easy to manage from the root to the hair shaft.” In conclusion, I can tell you that I loved how my hair felt after the treatment. All the ladies I spoke to also said that they loved how their hair turned out and will continue to use TRESemme products as well! Watch this space for my review after I continue using this product for the full TRESemme experience. Oh, and don’t forget to join the chit-chat about TRESemme Keratin Smooth in this thread! Goodbye, frizzy hair!
