Maybe I really shouldn't comment because I actually haven't tried this and probably won't. I am not a pantene hater by any means, fact is Pantene conditioners are the best for my hair period. I do, however, get caught up in the Pantene hype. I think every new Pantene product release is going to be the end all to be all of haircare. Nope. Read the ingredients on this shampoo compared to the other Pantene shampoos. They are basically the same!!! Why pay so much more for this shampoo when you can buy just about any of the "regular" Pantene shampoos for alot less and get more product and get basically the same thing. Seriously its just clever marketing.
My 1st Pantene product. I have used Paul Mitchell products for 20 years but couldn't find my faves recently so decided to try some drugstore choices.
This is okay. (Sorry I am so middle of the road about this.) It cleansed well, left my hair shiny, untangled and didn't cause a lot of fallout. I think that the claims are ludicrous but it's getting the job done and I can live with the scent (mango with a hint of coconut) about which I am really picky. Doesn't leave me with an itchy scalp.
I cannot say with a certainty that it will replace my love for my PM, however.
Got a bad case of roots going on now, and waiting for the patch test to complete before the touch-up. I bought this shampoo based upon the great reviews on MA, hoping to salvage my hair somewhat for Christmas. It was $8.00 at Target - not cheap but well worth it! My hair looks fantastic! Shiny and full and the roots seem non-existent. This is a great one - a good way to tide me over until I can color.
I absolutely, positively, cannot be more impressed with these products. I haven't put anything this great on my hair in years. It looks fantastic. I have some major damage going on around my crown from changing hair colors over the past couple years. This soothed that, yet it left my hair clean, perfectly conditioned, not weighed down at all. My hair color actually looks rich and my hair actually shines. I just cannot believe this stuff. I have used the most expensive products ranging from Fekkai to Ojon. I will pay anything to keep my hair gorgeous and now I will not let anything else touch my hair as long as they make this.
(since I purchased this in a set with the conditioner and treatment and used it all together, this is a slightly modified version of the same review I posted for the thickening treatment.)
I saw this advertised in Allure two days ago and ordered it that night online. I received it this afternoon and promptly washed my hair to try the collection out.
While I can't speak to the long-term effects yet, I can tell you that my fine hair that has been having temporary issues with thinning (autoimmune issues) once again looks substantial, and that's after just one use. My hair already felt healthier after just washing it, and has much more body now than it did before. It smelled nice and rinsed out well, and my hair was easier to comb through post-washing.
I do wish it did not contain SLS though, but it's rare to find a product with everything you are looking for. This system supposedly will make a substantial difference in a month's time. I will update my review when I know if that's true or not...
