Product Review: TRESemme Split Remedy Split End Sealing Serum

I bought this product from Priceline a week or two ago when they were having a big sale on hair products. I've had my eye on this product for a while, but was skeptical as to whether it would actually work or not, but seeing as it was reduced to $4 (or thereabouts), I decided I may as well give it a try.

What it claims:

"Tresemme Split Remedy reduces frizz and seals in shine for a polished finish and reduces split ends by up to 80% after just three uses."

The packaging advises to use one pump on towel dried or damp hair, focusing on the ends before styling as usual. Personally I find that one whole pump is a little too much at one time as the product is quite runny (which I see as a plus because the formula is lightweight) and quite a large amount comes out in one pump, therefore I usually dispense about half a pump at a time, concentating on the ends of my layers at the front to begin with as they have the most split ends, then working it through the rest of my hair. I usually end up using about three or four half pumps, so I guess up to two full pumps altogether. Once I'm done concentrating on the ends, I just use residue on my hands to smooth down flyaways and any frizz around the crown. After applying this, I just spray in a heat protectant and go ahead and style my hair as usual (blow dry and straighten).

As for results... Well I'm not sure how effective it is as to actually repairing the hair, but as far as visible results go - my hair looks a lot shinier and healthier when I use this product. It basically works by just sticking (or sealing) the split ends back together, therefore they appear less fluffy and frizzy, making the hair appear generally healthier. Not only does this product make my hair look better, it also makes my hair feel a lot smoother and sleeker when I use it.


  • Inexpensive
  • Sleek packaging
  • Adds shine, makes hair look healthier
  • Lightweight enough to use (sparingly) on dry hair as well as damp hair
  • Smell is very light, non offensive


  • Doesn't technically fix split ends (although no product really can to be fair)
  • Pump dispenses too much in one go

Overall rating = 8.5/10

So would I recommend this product? Yes, absolutely.

Even at its full retail price, (around $9.99 from memory), this product is an absolute godsend. Even if you don't have many split ends, I would definitely recommend this product to use as an ordinary serum just to give your hair some extra shine.


  1. I have this too along with the leave-in conditioner. I like it :)

  2. good information, maybe tomorrow I'll try it at home
