Finally, I have found something that keeps the static out of my hair! Usually in dry weather my hair is full of flyaways and sticks out everywhere, but even after the first use my hair is actually sleek and smooth but not too weighed down. Love the scent of this too. I'm using it with the Ice Shine shampoo and loving both products; they're going to be my new go-to for the winter.

I really love this product(s) one because it leaves my asian hair really silky and soft and non bushy at all. i leaves a really silky finish to it ( this is all paired with the shampoo).

I got this conditioner to help with my over processed, dry, frizzy hair. After several uses, I decided to try something else. I even tried using just this and not shampooing, but that made it even worse . . . my roots were oily and my ends dried and fried--even without blow-drying. This probably would have worked better if my hair was in better shape, but even so, it does not do what it claims. The scent didn't really stay in my hair long, either. I won't buy this again.

I love this conditioner! It smells so good and the smell stays in your hair for hours after you shower. It made my hair so soft and shiny. I bought a big bottle for $5 and it lasted me and my sisters about 3 months. The packaging could be better because if you accidentally leave the bottle open, product will drip out and it doesn't let you get every last drop. I have tried about 10 conditioners in the last year and this one is my favorite. I would definitely buy this product again.

Slightly better than the shampoo. This provides SOME shine, but my hair was still dull and flat, against my head. My curls don't like Pantene at all.

This works like a typical drug store conditioner. It does a decent job of detangling dry hair but the effects are short term and it makes my hair oily but still brittle at the end of the day.

Pantene Ice Shine consistently, reliably gave me great hair every day. With this product and the Ice Shine shampoo, I washed, conditioned and blow-dried daily, for at least 5 years, and my hair remained soft, shiny and frizz-free. Fabulous (^(oo)^)v

Doesn't add much shine, but it conditions pretty well. I would buy this again, but don't expect anything to actually add shine. It's okay and keeps my hair smoother than most conditioners, without weighing it down, which is critical as my hair is very fine.

This product doesn't really make a difference for my hair. My hair is not noticeably softer nor does it have more shine.

I like this conditioner. I didn't see any drastic results but it made my hair feel silkier and add some shine. I've been using this product forever and am pleased with the results it gives my hair

I love this conditioner! It smoothes hair, reduces frizz, and makes my wavy hair shiny when I blow dry it straight. It makes my hair feel softer too...definitely recommend!

This stuff is awful.
Really like the Pantene Smooth conditioner, and after commercials about this, figured it would be even better. Throwing it out after a couple of uses.

okay ive been using this for the past couple months and i absolutely LOVE it. i mean especially since i went through a sulfate free faze of shampoos (retarded) which fried my hair and i looked like a horse.
so this saved me and brought me back.
however i have acne all down my back now...
but you know what? i always have acne. so some more on my back i guess makes no difference. but im thinking about switching b/c i am constantly trying to fight acne. and i WILL find out which products irritate me and which do not

I've always heard from various sources that pantene has the best conditioner on consumer shelves these days, and I guess it's true. This is a very rich and creamy conditioner! It penetrated my hair thoroughly and made it so soft and manageable while decreasing hair fall.
Usually when using other conditioners, I'll have to tediously comb my hair section by section because it will still be so tangled! With this conditioner, I could just comb my hair normally (from the bottom upwards in a clockwise motion) until I loosened all the tangles; it took no time whatsoever.
After rinsing the conditioner from my hair, it was soft, beautifully scented and did not frizz up as badly as if I were to be using some other brand. I really enjoy this ice shine collection right now! The only thing I really wish out of pantene is that they change the caps on the shampoos and conditioners- they are hard to open!! I haven't seen them carry pump bottles at club grocers or anywhere for that matter, so I guess we're out of luck until they change the packaging someday. Other than that, the product is wonderful.

I have used this constantly over the past year and a half.. and I love it! I haven't went to a different conditioner yet. Used with the shampoo, it does amazing for my hair! Makes it really soft and adds a nice shine. Will continue to repurchase! : )

I hate to be accusatory, but I have to wonder if the people who have written extremely negative reviews on this product are using it correctly. I only say this because I have spoken to many people who don't understand product buildup and how to get the most from your their haircare products.
My hair is currently bra-strap length, and it is very fine but thick. My hair had been colored, highlighted, permed AND relaxed all in a short amount of time. This is a tremendous amount of stress to put on any hair, but especially fine hair. My hair had gotten dry and frizzy at the ends, and I was very afraid I was going to have to cut it all off. I gave myself a couple of protein treatments and a lot of intense conditioning to strengthen and soften my hair. This improved my hair, but it still fell out in clumps in the shower. I probably lost at least 50 hairs every time I washed it. On top of that, my hair still looked dull.
So I decided to try Pantene Ice Shine. I know that all hair stylists advise against Pantene, but they are trying to sell you salon products and services, and they often don't tell you the whole truth. Through the years, I have spent a fortune on haircare. I've tried so many salon brands and drugstore brands, and truthfully, I've never been more impressed than I am with Pantene Ice Shine. The shampoo has a rich lather, and I feel that it cleans my hair very well. The conditioner is rich, and leaves my hair very smooth and shiny. I have gotten so many compliments on how shiny my hair is, and I never heard that before. But possibly the best part of this is that I am losing MUCH less hair in the shower. This is the opposite of what most other reviewers have said, but honestly, I went from 40-50 strands lost to about 5. That is just a ridiculous decrease. I am absolutely THRILLED.
Yes, Pantene builds up on your hair. Pantene contains waxes and silicones, and this is what coats and protects your hair and makes it shiny. This does NOT have to be a problem, however. Once a week, I clarify my hair. This is ESSENTIAL when using Pantene!!! I recommend this with all hair products, but especially with Pantene. I have a feeling that a lot of people leaving negative reviews are not properly clarifying, and of course this is going to weigh your hair down and cause you to lose hair. Clarifying is not expensive or difficult. I use Suave daily clarifying shampoo (which is excellent...the best I have used), and lather with about a quarter-sized amount, rinse, then use another quarter-sized amount, gently scrunch through the ends, let that sit for about 1 minute, then rinse very well. I follow this with a good deep conditioner.
If you follow these directions, I assure you your experience with Pantene will be far more positive. Don't hesitate to give it a shot because of some scary reviews or what your hairdresser said. You might be like me and be REALLY surprised.

Bah. I really thought that this would make my black hair SHINE. Nope. This isn't the worst conditioner I've used, but definitely not the best. I found that this stuff is just mediocre, nothing special. I guess I had higher expectations for it, and was just disappointed that it really didn't make any kind of difference in the way my hair handled or looked. Wouldn't re- purchase.

I really like this! I use the shampoo & conditioner together & they leave my damaged hair feeling healthy, silky, soft, revived. I don't have long hair but it's dyed brown & crispy from overprocessed/repeated bleach highlights. With this set all that dreaded crispyness is gone. The shampoo cleans my hair well but doesn't strip all the moisture. It feels primed for the conditioner. The conditioner, after it soaks into my hair for a couple min, brings life back into my burned-out hair. As I rinse it out, my hair is super-soft & feels like a silk scarf. The $5 bottle is big & will last a while. It doesn't take a lot of conditioner to do the trick. In fact I think I over-applied the first time I used it. A dime-size amount is perfect for my short hair rather than the initial quarter-size I used. This has nice slip & detangles hair beautifully & it stays that way! The $8 bottle is even bigger. Both are white opaque upside-down bottles with impossible-to-open flip-open lids. I have to use a towel to open the lid & even that hurts my hand. So I have to keep the bottle lid ajar for each use. Anyway, packaging aside, this product is so great, I am happily surprised. I was expecting to be disappointed. My hair doesn't feel heavy, greasy or coated. It's not dry or dull. It's light, has volume, feels incredible (I want to keep touching my hair, it's like I have virgin hair, but better), feels clean yet well moisturized. And I see some extra sheen (chronic bleaching wrecked my hair texture). I just started using this, so if I have any negative effects from the conditioner or shampoo, I'll update my review. I left a separate review for the shampoo as well. So far this $10 set is very worth it. :)

I never really used Pantene, because everyone kept telling me crap about how it supposedly coats your hair with wax or whatever... My mom has used Pantene products for years though, and she honestly has the thickest, shiniest hair I've ever seen on anyone outside of a hair commercial... so I decided to try it, because if it works for my mom it can't be that bad.
I got the Ice Shine because my hair is thin, dull, dry and anything but shiny. That and the fact that it was on sale.
Anyways. I was so excited to use it, and when I finally did, I fell in love. I'm definately sticking with this for a while. I dont know how well the conditioner works on it's own, but I use it with the Ice Shine shampoo (thats how it was designed to be used) and my hair SHINES. Like for real, my hair is soo over processed and dry lately I didn't think it would do much, but my hair is actually reflecting light (aka shine) and looks super healthy! I can't wait to wash my hair again. Highly recommend.
EDIT** This product has since been discontinued... I've tried a dozen other Pantene conditioners, and none are as creamy or moisturizing as this one... so by comparison, I've upgraded this review to 5 stars. And I'm ordering leftover stock of this conditioner online as I type this! lol

At first I really liked how my hair felt. It did make my hair smooth and silky BUT, after about a week I noticed my hair was falling out...ALOT!
I kept using it thinking that maybe it wasn't the conditioner but after about 6 weeks, I stopped using it and switched to another conditioner. Surprise... my hair doesn't fall out as much now. BEWARE!!!
