didn't do much for my hair. not much slip or moisture after.
As a kid, I avoided Pantene. Then I tried the curly line and fell in love. Then they reformulated recently and WOW - for somebody with medium-fine, ringletty curls with dry, dry, dry, hair, I have never had any problems. My hair has always curled and done me well. Then within the last several weeks I started noticing that for the first time, my hair was limp, flat, heavy, and NOT CURLING. Bizarre! I was upset, thought maybe it was heat damage, then realized just how MANY silicones there are in the Pantene shampoo and conditioner I had been using [and attempting to condition heavily for my awful dry hair, with the mistaken idea that conditioner would be GOOD for it.] Frustrated, I've gone off shampoo and silicones altogether, and washed my hair with baking soda and a vinegar rinse. Lo and behold, my hair curled again! And was softer and shinier than ever. [What?!] Still heavy and flat, but a world better than what Pantene did to it. I have a ways to go, but I am apalled at a product marketed for curly hair that, where no product has ever done it before, managed to straighten out my locks. Never have I actually NOTICED something weighing down my hair.
You get what you pay for -- silicones are cheap and the worst kind of illusion for your hair. Do yourself a favor and figure out what else works for you.
i have wavy hair that is naturally very soft, albeit a bit dry. i bought this with the hopes of enhancing my waves. while this conditioner smells AMAZING, it did nothing to my hair. it made my hair look really greasy, as if i hadn't just showered that day. it also dried my hair out. it started looking dull and wasn't smooth as it used to. i wish it worked for me, as i love the smell. i switched to suave's almond and shea butter conditioner and my hair is amazingly soft again.
I like this conditioner it is not my favorite but it enhances my curls which i have few of. it leaves my hair feeling soft :) It also has a beautiful scent
After being horribly disappointed with Panteneís new Curl Serum, I did not have high hopes for this, but I was happily wrong: this is great! Itís almost identical to my beloved Redken Real Control Conditioner (Panteneís fragrance is much stronger). My curls are soft and defined, but by the end of the day my hair feels a little drier than it does with Real Control. Still, for the price itís a great deal. Iíve started using this for my daily routine and saving Real Control for Sundays and important occasions. I will buy this again.
I have wavy hair and have been using this for years along with the shampoo. They changed the bottle/line a couple months ago and I think they must've changed the ingredients too because this just doesn't work for my hair anymore! It used to leave my hair silky and shiny and now I feel like my roots are greasy while my ends are dried out. I've tried just using the conditioner with a clarifying shampoo from Suave which is better for my roots but the rest of my hair still feels dry but with a film over it- it looks dull too! I spent about $10+ buying these and I'd like to use the rest of the bottles but I just hate the way my hair looks and feels!
It left my hair dry, sticky, and wirey. I saw no moisture, just wax. It smells amazing though.
My hair is super curly, thick, and dry. I used this conditioner today, and my hair is a mess. It feels nasty to the touch-----dried out, brittle, and crunchy. Instead of controlling frizz, it actually made my hair frizz MORE. I'm basically sitting here with a fuzzball on my shoulders. I'm going to have to mix some of my other conditioner with lemon juice and run it through to get the residue off (washing didn't do the trick). I've had the bottle of Pantene for a while, and it did the same thing before, so I know it's the culprit. Ugh, I don't know why I keep trying to use Pantene products---they are terrible for hair. I think I finally learned my lesson, though. Never again!
This is the best DS conditioner I've had. My hair is curly and dries out, but is also not very thick so many conditioners weigh it down and make it look heavy and almost dirty. Not with this though - smooth and pretty, even the next day. Nothing very special about the accompanying shampoo or 2 in 1 (I've tried them all), but I'll definitely rebuy this one.
First off, my hair is curly, frizzy, dry and is the PERFECT target for this product line. I used both the shampoo and conditioner.When I used it (I used this a couple times, not just once), I noticed my hair was EXTRA crunchy, and felt all gross. I'm not sure how to explain-the texture of my hair was rough. BLEGH! EVEN MY AUNT WHO USED THE MEDIUM-THICK LINE SAID HER HAIR FELT THE SAME AS MINE! My hair was also heavy, and weighed my hair down. I bet that if I chose to contine with this product any longer, I would get lots of build-up on my hair. Plus, my hair was still frizzy...it had no positive effects on my hair whatsoever!
Another thing is that both Pantene shampoo and conditioner are FULL of harmful SILICONES that damage curly hair over time. IT IS BAD FOR YOUR HAIR. But it's not just Pantene, many hair products have silicones. If your a girl with a curl, avoid silicones.
As for the positive, it did smell good. It smells like the other old pantene conditioners and shampoos. But I still felt and smelt a "chemically" sort of smell, which you know off the bat that it's bad for your hair.
Overall, I HATE this product, threw out both 3/4 full bottles, and would never buy this again or ever recomend it to anyone. I was very disapointed. I usually like Pantene products.
