Today I wanted to talk to you guys about options to replace your Tresemme shampoo. Following the lawsuits filed against Tresemme, I’ve been asked quite a few times by friends about shampoos that would be a good replacement.

I will say that I have always disliked Tresemme, starting back to when I was a beauty consultant. It always seemed to dry my hair out and make my hair appear dirty daily, and customers would have mixed reviews on whether or not this product seemed to work for them. I compiled a list of products I would recommend that are comparable to Tresemme, but I’ve had a lot less complaints about in the past. Ideally every hair stylist would tell you to stop putting drugstore products on your hair, but I know the struggle. I’ve since needed to switch back to dandruff shampoo because I can’t seem to go long without needing the beloved blue and white bottle in my life, but I’ve used all of these products I’m about to list in the past when I’ve been on a budget or otherwise didn’t care to spend money on premium hair care products.


I loved using Renpure, and I had one in my gym bag forever until I stopped going to the gym last fall. You know a hair care product is going to pack a punch when the first ingredients listed on the label is water and coconut oil, and most of the ingredients are derived from natural oils. I loved the smell of these products– the argan oil one was my favorite. My hair felt silky and smooth after a workout, and the ingredient list is overall wholesome. This product may be a little more on the expensive side to some of the other options on this list, but you should be able to pick up a bottle in your local supermarket or Wal-Mart.

Maui Moisture

This product lists aloe as the first ingredient on the back of the bottle, with water listed as the second main ingredient. Then the shampoo lists 4 alcohols and then a bunch of oils to lock in the moisture. For me, this made my hair feel a bit weighed down so if you’re battling oily hair this may not be the product for you. However, I have heard many good reviews of this product for those of you who are more on the drier side when it comes to hair, so this may be exactly what the beauty doctor called for.

L’Oreal Elvive

This is a tough one, as some of the ingredients in the back are not ones you’d easily be able to decipher. There are alcohols listed within this shampoo as well as a few preservatives, but I have always heard good things from customers who have purchased this product before in the past, including my own mother who swears by it. This product is generally for those who have problems with dry and damaged hair. The product redeems itself in my mind for having a plethora of natural oils listed on the label including coconut oil, jojoba oil, canella, and argan oils to lock in moisture.

Mane ‘N Tail

Mane ‘N Tail has been used as a equestrian shampoo for going on decades, but don’t let that fool you. You can find Mane ‘N Tail in most drug and dollar stores, and this option is the cheapest one on my list for the 32oz sized bottles. If you’re just looking for a standard hair shampoo and you don’t have and problems you’re hoping to correct then this is going to be the option for you. Their original shampoo and conditioner products are going to offer you a clean feeling without weighing your hair down.
