Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner Review & Giveaway

I have really been putting my poor locks through a lot lately. A couple of months ago I went from blonde to denim  and I have been playing around with quite a few shades of grey ever since.

This has resulted in hair that is a bit stressed and overworked.

Pantene Repair & Protect & Gold Tangle Teezer

This is where Pantene comes in. They were kind enough to send me a hamper containing the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to try and I’m loving it. They popped a beautiful gold Tangle Teezer in the parcel too and I’m totally smitten with its utter gorgeousness. But I digress…

Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner Review

This year, Pantene is launching its newest formulation to restore and maintain hair health from the core. This breakthrough – which is the world’s first to work at the core for stronger, shinier hair – will give women across the region more beautiful hair that can do it all! The new Pantene Pro-V with Histidine, goes deep inside the hair shaft – to the cellular level – to work on the remaining 95% where damaging impurities exist. As the impurities build up over time, hair starts to weaken. Hair feels rough and becomes less manageable, and visibly loses its depth of colour and natural shine.

Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect is designed for damaged, stressed, and overworked hair and aims to restore smoothness, shine and manageability to the hair. And it does just that.

Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect Shampoo and Conditioner Review & Giveaway

The shampoo is super luxurious and creamy and leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth. I prefer SLS free shampoos, this one does not leave my hair feeling stripped at all, even when I use it very frequently.

The conditioner is my favourite of the two. It leaves my hair feeling incredibly smooth and soft with a beautiful shine. My curls look amazing when I use this conditioner.

The smell of both the shampoo and conditioner needs an extra special mention. Oh my. It’s lovely and it lingers. I am besotted. I don’t know if the changed the scent since I last used Repair & Protect, but I can’t remember that it smelt quite this good. Two thumbs up.

All in all, I would highly recommend the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner. The condition of my hair improves with every use. If you have very dry, damaged hair, you should really give it a try.

Introducing Moroccanoil Smooth

[et_pb_section][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

Moroccanoil recently introduced their brand new Smooth Collection. As I am more than a little obsessed with Moroccanoil, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

If you’ve never tried any Moroccanoil products and are still not sure if the splurge is worth it, you are welcome to read about my first experience with the brand HERE. I was also unsure at first as there are many cult brands who aren’t necessarily as great as they are made out to be. Moroccanoil definitely does not fall in that category. Oh man, I love this stuff. And yes, the scent is as gorgeous as everyone says. Please Moroccanoil, bring the body and sun ranges to our shores! Back to Smooth…

Moroccanoil Smooth Collection review Pretty Please Charlie blog

‘Moroccanoil Smooth Collection formulations are enriched with our proprietary Moroccanoil argan oil-infused blend, potent and ultra-nourishing argan butter, as well as coconut derived fatty acids, which leaves hair soft, shiny and instantly more manageable. Designed for all hair types, the products are free of sulfates, phosphates, parabens, and are also completely color-safe.’        

This range is suitable for all hair types and aims to smooth the hair to increase shine and manageability.

I received the shampoo and conditioner and I am happy to report that my hair feels amazing. My curls are smooth (read: a lot less frizzy), soft and shaped. I love that after I rinse the conditioner, my hair feels nourished and cared for without a heavy coating (which I find a few smoothing ranges to do). The only negative is that my hair feels ‘hard’ after I shampoo. I don’t really understand why as I know my hair isn’t stripped. But after I apply the conditioner, my hair feels soft and easy to detangle. The combination of the shampoo and conditioner seems to work well.

There is also a mask and a smoothing lotion in the range. I am very keen to see how the lotion will work with my curls.

The products retail between R350 and R570 and is avaibale from Retailbox and leading salons.
