TRESemme are such a popular haircare brand, but I feel like I never see their products mentioned on beauty blogs or beauty YouTube videos any more. I purchased the TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream as I’ve been trying to let my hair air dry naturally more often. My hair is naturally curly and frizzy, but if I just let my hair to air dry without using any products, my hair becomes a massive mound of uncontrollable frizz.
TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream
“The TRESemmé Botanique Styling collection brings you the power of nature and professional expertise to your fingertips.

For natural looking touchable styles that move. Be inspired, be beautiful. If you think TRESemmé Air Dry Curl Cream is one of the best products to help define your curls, don’t keep it a secret.“
The TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream is £5.49 and contains 200ml of product within a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The directions are nice and simple, you just apply 5-7 pumps of product and work it through the hair.
I would say that will be too much product for most people. I have very long hair, and a lot of hair and I found 5 pumps to be a little too much, so if you go straight in with 5 pumps worth, you might find it overloading your hair and weighing it down.
In terms of consistency, the TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream feels like a moisturiser and it does feel a little slimy. Without even checking the ingredients list, I instantly knew it had to be filled with silicones as the sliminess isn’t pleasant, but I’d imagine it’s the silicones that are designed to help smooth the hair.
I think the TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream sounded promising but I didn’t find that it really did anything. It leaves my hair smelling nice, but it doesn’t really control frizz and if anything, it makes my hair take so much longer to dry.
Normally on a warm day it’d take a couple of hours to air dry, but when using the TRESemme Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream it takes around four to five hours, and I also found that it was too heavy for my fine hair too. I’d personally prefer to use one of the Aussie leave in conditioners, and is sadly not a product I’d repurchase.
