Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner which I picked up for £1 (Poundland).

This conditioner promises to nourish hair for a more youthful look.

The product is quick and easy to use – use it like any regular conditioner, but leave it on for 2 minutes.

How’s the product? I like it! Whilst I think that Pantene’s Youth Protect shampoo and conditioner aren’t impressive at all, this intensive conditioner is very nice!

I’m not sure about the “youthful” look, but I’m satisfied that this product makes my hair feel super soft. I like it!

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner is available as 200ml. I would definitely recommend it!

Pantene Breakage Defence Hair Strength Tonic

Hi there! Pantene’s Breakage Defence Hair Strength Tonic has been sitting in my stash for quite some time. So I thought it’s time to give it a try! Before I tell you if this product is any good, here’s what it claims to do. 🙂

This product promises to provide “extra strength and resilient fullness”. It also claims to protect hair from styling damage. In order to reap the benefits, you’re supposed to use this tonic daily by spraying it at your roots (15 pumps, your hair can be dry or wet) and to massage it in. Now onto the review…

I’ve used this tonic twice – and I won’t be using it again. This tonic stinks. Literally. It stinks up my hair! But it’s not really surprising considering that the first ingredient listed on the back of the bottle is alcohol! I’m also not convinced that spraying alcohol at my roots and massaging it into my hair and scalp is a good thing…

In summary, this product is going in the bin!

Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pantene’s Pro-V Volume & Body Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve had mixed experiences with Pantene products this year (and actually last year too). But I’ve never tried these two products before, so I wanted to give them a try.

Let’s start with the shampoo. I like that the shampoo is clear. I’m bored of creamy white shampoos (who isn’t…), so this one gets an (imaginary) extra star for being clear. I also like the fragrance – it’s not very special, but it’s definitely pleasant. I think this shampoo cleanses my scalp and my hair reasonably, and it doesn’t make my hair look or feel greasy after 24 hours. That’s nice. However, this shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel soft.

Sure, most hair products that promise more volume aren’t softening, and I understand that this is how they (claim to) achieve the actual volume, but I like my hair to feel soft. Still, this is a decent shampoo, and I think it would work well on oily hair.

The conditioner isn’t great. It’s not very conditioning, and it doesn’t detangle my hair well. Again, I appreciate that this is a product feature, and not a design flaw. However, how am I supposed to achieve more volume if  I have to use a handful of conditioner just to detangle my hair?

Looking at other Pantene products, I think this conditioner is definitely better than the Youth Protect conditioner and the Colour Protect & Volume conditioner. But it’s not working well with my hair type (= curly, although I think my hair is transitioning to wavy due to its length) and because of this it actually flattens my hair. 😦 But I’m sure this conditioner will work much better for ladies with straight hair.

I’ll continue to use these two products on homeworking days and stay-at-home weekends. But I don’t think that I’ll buy these two products again once they’re finished.

Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Shampoo
is available as 400ml for £3.99. Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Conditioner is available as 360ml for £3.99. I got these two on a half price deal.

Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect & Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! A few weeks ago I went nuts at the drugstore and I bought about a dozen shampoos and conditioners which I’ve never had before. I know it’s quite a lot, but everything was half price. And I really can’t resist a bargain. 🙂 OK. Now meet Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect & Smooth shampoo and conditioner.
pantene-colour-protect-smooth
The shampoo feels nice and gentle and I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair properly. However, it’s nothing special. The conditioner is decent. It detangles my hair nicely, but every other day it feels like it’s weighing my hair down.

I have to say that these two products really make my hair feel smooth. And I like the pleasant (yet non-descript) scent. However, in regards to colour protection, this combo doesn’t really work. All in all, I think this product line is OK, but clearly I’m not in love with it. So whilst I might buy these two products again, I’m in no rush to do so.

In regards to whether I’d recommend these products, I’d say it depends on your hair type. If you have dry hair or if you want your hair to be smoother, I’d say give these products a try.

Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect & Smooth shampoo (400ml) and conditioner (360ml) are available for £3.99 each. But keep in mind, there’s almost always a half price offer somewhere. 😉

Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect & Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi there! After Pantene Youth Protect and Pantene Breakage Defence I’ve now tried Pantene Pro-V Colour Protect & Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.

I really love the shampoo. It makes my hair feel incredibly soft. I think this is one of the best shampoos I’ve ever had.

The conditioner is not as great. It feels dry and not very conditioning at all. I need to use a lot of product but the result is still only meh because it doesn’t detangle my hair properly.

I’ll definitely repurchase the shampoo and will team it up with a different conditioner. However, I’m not buying this conditioner again.

Pantene Colour Protect & Volume shampoo (400 ml) and conditioner (360 ml) can be yours for £3.99 each. But keep your eyes peeled for half price offers!

Pantene Pro-V Breakage Defence Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi there! Not too long ago I tried Pantene’s Youth Protect, so I thought I’d give another Pantene product line a go. Today I’m telling you what I think about Pantene’s Pro-V Breakage Defence shampoo and conditioner.

Let’s start with the shampoo! I think this shampoo is really good. It cleanses my hair properly, but it’s not drying and it doesn’t leave my hair a knotty mess. I also like the scent which I’d describe as a mix of yellow apples and cashmere. 🙂

The conditioner is really good as well. It makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down! I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised at how good these products are! I liked these much better than the Youth Protect products, and it’s safe to say that I’ll be buying this shampoo & conditioner combo again.

Pantene Pro-V Breakage Defence shampoo (400ml) and conditioner (360ml) can be yours for £3.99 each. But keep your eyes peeled for half price offers!

Pantene Aqua Light 2 Minutes Light Nourishment Mask

2015 Pantene Aqua Light55Hi there! Today’s post is about a product I found at my local 99p Store: Pantene Aqua Light 2 Minutes Light Nourishment Masque.

I love my local 99p Store. They often have great toiletries – discontinued gems, products from different countries, and readily available toiletries for a reasonable price.

However, before I consider buying imported products, I check where they’re from. This hair treatment is from a EU country which – just like the UK, Germany or France – follows EU regulations; this means I was happy to buy it.

Fast forward to now… I’ve been using the hair masque for about two to three times a week for the past three weeks now and I’m really happy with it. It makes my hair soft and silky without weighing it down. Pantene Aqua Light is definitely a great deep conditioner, and it is very suitable for the warmer summer months. 🙂

I also like this product’s scent which I would describe as fresh and clean, a bit generic, but definitely pleasant. It is my understanding that this product has been discontinued. Whilst Pantene displays other Aqua Light products on its web site, this hair mask seems to be gone. Too bad!
