Thanks for all your emails, prayers and the kind wishes for my surgery! It was successful without any complications and I’m under rest now. It has been only more than a few days since we returned home from the hospital. I must say things are really getting back to normal.
One of the biggest problems I ever faced due to the hospitalization was hair breakage and hair fall! I never thought I’d lost so much of hair. A month of not washing/combing my hair has led to bad tangles and hair loss that the first thing I wanted to do is try effective to get back my smooth, breakage free hair again.
That is when Blogadda sent this New Pantene hamper to Lancy and she shared it with me as I wanted to try it! Since I do not use our shikakai powder now, (It involves a lot of effort compared to using shampoos and doctor advised me to stay away from ‘cold’ things!) I thought a nice shampoo from a well-known brand would do the trick! Especially, Pantene being a very trusted brand, used to be one of my favorites and I had no hesitations to the combo on my damaged hair!
The new Pantene Pro V Shampoo & Conditioner contains Keratin damage blockers technology that reduces up to 98% of the hair fall caused due to damage, with regular usage. I’d taken a #14DayChallenge and let me share my experience in detail today!
The shampoo and conditioner come in standard white colored plastic bottles that are sturdy. They come with an attractive golden colored flip cap which helps dispense the right amount of the product!
Coming the consistency, the shampoo is somewhat runny with a shine whereas the conditioner is nice and thick! I really like my conditioner to be rich as they work very well on dry/damaged hair!
Not being used to store bought shampoos in the recent past, I was afraid that these would end up smelling chemical-like or scented (I’ve this aversion to poorly scented products!) but fortunately, the shampoo has a fruity-delicious fragrance that is not hard to the senses! I absolutely loved it and I can surely say this is one of the best smelling shampoos available in the market today. The conditioner almost smells similar, but it is also a little bit different and refreshing. I’ve no disappointments with the scent of the New Pantene! The best, I must say.
Coming to the cleansing effect – the shampoo foams really well and helps me get rid of all the dirt from my scalp and the hair ends. It also removes every bit of oil without a trace! Mind you I shampooed my hair after a month and the combo seriously made my hair feel clean, soft and manageable in spite of me using it only once on my hair! I was surprised that it minimized the breakage, hence leading to less hair fall. As I combed my hair, I found a very few strands of hair compared to how I used to lose hair earlier! (at the hospital!)
I’m yet to see if it’d help with hair loss from the root but again, it’d take time and there must be improvements on my health to see that happen! Hair loss can only be combated by a healthy routine and a good diet. After my surgery, I’m slowly getting back to the normal diet and I’m hoping to reduce the shed rate! (Thankfully, I lost no volume as I oiled my hair thrice with our product in between and it prevented the damage/hair loss!).
Along with this New Pantene combo, I’ve also got to try the shampoo and the conditioner from the unnamed mystery brands simultaneously to see how the New Pantene works compared to the brand and honestly, my hair felt more manageable with Pantene and I also experienced less hair breakage/hair fall!
Since I couldn’t get photos of my hair clicked right after shampooing, here Lancy shares her comparison pictures! She uses a shampoo every once to clarify the scalp buildup. And the Pantene product made her hair all clean, shiny and manageable!
Rating : 4.5/5
Overall, the New Pantene really helped me save my hair as I was really scared if I’d need to chop my hair off after one month of no-wash. It was that dirty and tangled (The strands were badly stuck together!)
The shampoo did a great job of cleansing my hair and the conditioner managed to detangle it really well, fighting hair breakage and I’m overall liking the range very much!
I’m definitely sticking this this shampoo conditioner combo for that it helped me win my hair loss battle! My hair feels perfect now and all thanks to Pantene!
