- Pantene Pro-V recently offered me the chance to try its breakthrough new shampoos as a part of its ongoing “Strong is Beautiful” campaign.
Before I tell you about the products, however, I’d like to give you guys some background info on the history of shampoo 🙂 Way back in the day, original shampoo “technology ” simply cleansed the surface of the hair and rinsed off excess dirt, oil, and styling residue. Then, in the 1980s, 2- in-1 shampoos hit the market with huge success. This new class of ‘poos were the first ever cleaning agent to cleanse and effectively moisturize hair. While there are all sorts of crazy claims nowadays on what your new shampoo can do for you, most shampoos today still only cleanse the surface of the hair. But Pantene is changing the game with its new shampoos that actually penetrate to the core of the hair shaft with nourishing lipids and antioxidants. This new shampoo formula replenishes moisture, and protects from present, and future damage. Needless to say, I was pretty stoked to give them a try!
After trying both the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner for several weeks now, I can say I’m definitely impressed. The fragrance is light and pleasing (my scalp tends to get irritated easily, so fragrance is always a concern for me) and the shampoo lathers way more than any other product I’ve tried! Since I live in an area with very hard water, it can be hard to get products to lather and wash off properly in the shower, so the lather was such a great surprise. I was even more surprised when the shampoo rinsed out easily, allowing me to easily detangle my hair with my fingers before I even applied the conditioner. After drying my hair, it still felt soft and manageable, so two big thumbs up from me!I’m sure we’re all familiar with the advice to not shampoo often since it strips the hair of its natural oils. I work out six days a week and I’ve always tended to wash three times a week and then rely on dry shampoo for the remaining days, which wasn’t exactly leaving my hair feeling refreshed after sweating. With Pantene’s new shampoos I’ve been able to up my wash days and still have my hair be soft, which makes me so happy (and clean)!
Let me know if you give them a try!
