I have finally found a shampoo and conditioner pair that I can actually use for more than a week and it just gets better. I still can't believe it, it has been almost a month of use, and my hair keeps responding so well. And to a Pantene product! My hair hates all the other Pantene versions, since they changed it way back in eighties and early nineties (I still lament over the old formula of Pantene for color treated hair with the white bottle and the gold cap, oh how I wish they never stopped making that.) But-- I can say that this formula has really saved my hair. I am caucasian, my hair type is fine, curly, dry, color treated, damaged ends, plus I have low thyroid which tends to dry your hair and scalp and thins out the hair. The texture of my hair has changed alot over the last few years. Plus, it started to fall out badly last year and every shampoo I used made it worse. Every shampoo I tried did the same thing- works good for a couple if washes, then the hair fall starts, it gets stiff or crunchy or sticky and coated, flat or flyaway, just not working. I tried every single version of the Suave and Suave Professionals, Pantene, Dove, Tresemme, Aussie, Paul Mitchell, Nexxus, Folicure, Age Beautiful at Sally's, Argan oil, Ion, coconut oil treatments, several of the Organix, VO5 professionals, Finesse, L'oreal Advanced; store brands, salon brands, nothing worked. The only other shampoo I can use is the old standard VO5 extra body which is great for every couple of weeks to switch it up and clarify a bit. That is the only other shampoo that will not make my hair fall out, but it is a bit too drying for regular use. This shampoo to the rescue! My hair now feels soft, full, it shines, it is manageable and healthy looking. The cost is about $7-8, a bit higher than most drugstore products, but that is ok as long as it works. I hope to continue to have great results and hope they don't decide to change this like they change the other Pantene products. I also use the Age Defy hair color from Clairol that goes with this line. I will have a separate review for that. I do not know why this works for me, but it is an answer to my prayers and it is a relief to have good hair again.
I have fine, limp hair & to make matter worse, it's started to thin on top. I have been using this product for about 6 months now and love it. When I started, I was about 5 months into a perm so I have to say I really didn't see a huge difference. BUT... two weeks ago I ran out of the shampoo & conditioner. I live in a small town and can't get the products in our local drug store. So I started using one of my old brands again & ended up with 2 weeks of bad hair days. This is when I realized just how well my hair had been responding to the Age Defy Shampoo collection. The bottom line is, with this product, I don't need a perm or a curling iron to get the volume I want. I blow dry it with a round brush and my hair is shiny, and manageable. I will continue to use these products (shampoo, conditioner, thickening treatment)
I got a sample of this and almost did not try it because I have always had trouble with Pantene. I decided to try it after I read that it fights the 7 signs of aging. I wish I would have skipped this. After just one use I was disgusted with this and the conditioner. This scent is kind of icky. The product is creamy and that was not a problem. The problem is how this affected my hair. Right in the shower I was left with tangly hair that even though it was wet it felt really dry. This was a pain to comb through my hair and I was so frizzy as this started to dry. The next day I was left with really frizzy, oily scalp, and dry ends hair. This is one to skip. At this price you are better off going for a salon product.
I wasn't expecting much. I have super dry, thinning "Thyroid hair"... I've tried soooo many products and my hair still feels like straw because of my medical issues with my thyroid. That being said, this leaves my hair feeling softer and feels gentle on my hay-like uber thin hair. I also seem to have way less shedding when I use this compared to my expensive shampoos made for thinning hair. Only minus is the price and it has sulfates. Other than that, I like this and the conditioner.
This shampoo, along with the conditioner and treatment is without a doubt the WORST I've ever used. I have thin, fine hair that with the RIGHT shampoo/cond I can make more voluminous and bouncy. This crap makes my hair flat, filthy looking and dull, and that's right after a shampoo! The second day is hideous (ponytail and hat). Save your money, this line is awful..
As I said about the conditioner, AMAZING! I would recommend this product to anyone needing a real hair boost, especially over 35!
The advertising hit all the right notes for my hair. Aging, dry, frizzy, and light greying. I used most of the bottle with no real benefit to my middle aged hair. Pros-it feels good while you are washing and rinsing. Cons-no change to frizziness, dryness, or breakage upon drying. Also, this is expensive for a drug store shampoo. I wouldn't recommend this and I certainly would not repurchase. Disappointing.
I tried this product as it was promoted as helping correct issues I have with my hair, namely frizz, flyaway and some gray that's very dry and wiry. I have now used the product for several weeks and am not impressed with it, as it hasn't helped correct any of the issues named above. In fact, I've noticed no difference between this product and any other Pantene shampoos I previously used, except for one and that is the cost! This one is twice as expensive as the others, yet does nothing to merit the higher cost. On the plus side, it does have a nice fragrance and rinses out clean. I find the bottle less practical than a tube, but this isn't a big deal. Overall, I give it a neutral rating as it hasn't made my hair worse, but it certainly hasn't improved it.
I should mention I've used the conditioner along with the shampoo, so my above comments are based upon several weeks usage of both.
For reference I have thin, fine, color treated hair. I have been test driving this, and L'Oreal's Advanced Total Repair 5. This one lost. I used each for a full 6 days in a row. On day one I used a clarifying shampoo, then 6 says of the shampoo, always with the same conditioner (DermOrganic...the best!) and the same styling products (Redken 07 Layer Lift & Gelatine) so that it was only the shampoo that changed. I had only one good hair day with this...the first day I used it. After that my hair was just flatter with less body, and harder to style and manage, and looked more wrecked, flat, frizzy, and rat-like by the end of the day. It lathers well and I do like the scent of this one slightly better.
I have highlighted blonde thin hair.i try every shampoo from cheap to pricey.this is awful. Although my hair was very soft and shiny,it was beyond Flat. Looked liked I needed to wash it, pancake flat. I would never buy it again.
