I think most people have heard of Pantene products, they have been going quite a while now and I personally feel as an affordable product they are a brand people can trust. Their range caters for most hair types and with a styling range too you can’t really go wrong!
Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek Range is now SPA inspired too after a group of Stoke Park Spar clients were invited too experience a spa-inspired hair treatment. The Clients were surprised to discover that Pantene Pro-V gave the same smoothness results as a luxury spa hair treatment (Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek shampoo, conditioner and intensive vs a selected spa treatment (shampoo, conditioner and intensive)!
Dan Gray, Group Wellness Manager at Stoke Park Spa by SPC, says of the endorsement: “At Stoke Park Spa by SPC we pride ourselves on sourcing the best available products for use in our treatments, ensuring we maintain our award-winning spa experience.We are proud to recommend the Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek range.”
I was sent the Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek Shampoo, Conditioner and 24 Hour Frizz Fighter to try and tell you what I think.
I have used Pantene in the past and also tried their Smooth and Sleek range too. I love their shampoo and conditioner as I find it really makes may hair feel clean. Some shampoos and conditioners I feel leave a build up in my hair and after a day it can feel dirty or ‘coated’ with something. Often this can lead to dull, flat hair or worse still; greasy looking!
The shampoo is a pearlescent white, not too thick but not exceptionally runny either. It smells fresh, slightly floral but its a minimal smell which isn’t over powering at all. I find you can get a really good lather with just one shampoo, but I like to wash lather and repeat so always treat myself too a second turn. The shampoo doesn’t leave my hair feeling like straw after and my hair feels clean but also nourished (If I do not apply any other products and just dry it after shampooing and rinsing).
The Smooth and Sleek conditioner smells exactly like the shampoo, so you have a matching fresh scent on your hair. Again this is not an overpowering smell. It is one of the few conditioners I find I can apply, massage in and do not need to leave it on my hair to feel the benefits. It is reasonably thick but not so much so that its hard to massage in. When my hair is rinsed it feels soft and conditioned. It is easy to comb through too. I tried this on my daughters coarse thick knotty hair and it got all the tangles out and left it smooth and soft! When I dried my hair after using this product (With no other styling products) my hair was left, soft shiny and glossy!
The Pantene Smooth and Sleek Frizz Fighter is a product you apply to towel dried hair, work through your locks and then style as normal. It can help prevent frizz and is great when blow drying your hair as it leaves it extremely smooth, shiny and glossy but also helps lose that ‘frizzy/whispy’ hair look many of us get when our hair is over processed! This product took me a little getting used too, a little goes a very long way and the first three times I used it I found I applied too much. For my shoulder length hair a ’10 pence’ sized amount was ample! So this bottle would last you a very long time and is great value for money. I blow dried my hair straight with this product and it really was amazing! It left my hair gorgeous, smooth and it looked great. Several people commented had I been to a hair dressers! However, I wanted to really put this product too the test. My Mum who has naturally curly wirery hair tried it for me too and blow drier her hair. It was smooth, soft and also held the style really well even when her hair got damp from the rain! She was really pleased with the results.
The Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek range is available at most supermarkets and pharmacy/drugstores. The prices are very reasonable too;
Smooth and Sleek Shampoo is £2.19 (250ml)
Smooth and Sleek Conditioner £2.19 (200ml)
Smooth and Sleek Intensive Treatment £3.99 (200ml)
Smooth and Sleek Frizz Fighter £3.99 (50ml)
You can almost always find it on offer too if you shop around. Boots are always doing them on ‘2 for’ offers and Superdrug often have Pantene Smooth and Sleek at great prices too!
Over all, I think Pantene is a great brand. I really enjoyed trying the Smooth and Sleek range, it left my hair amazing and at such a reasonable price I don’t think you can go wrong!
Lots of Love,
