I recently received the new Pantene Full & Strong Shampoo and Conditioner to try out and review through Influenster and their VoxBox Campaigns. I was really excited to be chosen for this Campaign because I really, really love Pantene (in fact I had to take out my Damage Detox Shampoo and Conditioner so I could immediately start using the new Full & Strong.
This new shampoo & conditioner is designed to fight the flat and help prevent split ends. It’s a body building shampoo that will gently cleanse your hair for a lightweight nourishment and preps hair for an all-over fullness while the conditioner will provide intense nourishment to give you healthy hair that moves freely.
(all of that is paraphrased from the card that was included in my VoxBox… so I’m just giving you the general gist of their description of the product).
First impression? This smells amazing coming straight out of the bottle. And it filled the shower with the same amazing smell as I washed/conditioned my hair. I normally shower at night to give myself extra snooze time in the morning and I noticed that my hair still smelled really good in the morning after I’d slept on it all night.
I’ve been using it for a few days now and I really do think I can tell the difference. Maybe it’s because I’m actually paying attention so I can review this product, but there is a noticeable difference in how my hair feels. I feel like I have a little bit more volume and I think my hair feels softer & more silky. It feels really, really nice. I can’t tell you if I have less split ends because well… I never really paid attention to them before but I did try to search some out and didn’t really find any. I do think my hair feels and looks healthier. Which says a lot because I thought it looked healthy before since I was using Pantene’s Damage Detox and I thought that was doing a pretty good job.
In short, I’m pretty much in love with this new shampoo and conditioner and it’s definitely going to be one I buy, for myself, after these bottles are empty!
I also was sent a to-go bottle of Pantene’s Dry Shampoo. I’ve used dry shampoo in the past and was never really a big fan of it because it left my hair feel like straw and I didn’t think it made my hair look any better than if I had just not used it at all. I was a little skeptical but I gave it a chance anyway. I’ve only used it once, but I was initially impressed because it didn’t leave my hair feeling like straw. I didn’t re-style my hair so I think my hair looked pretty good for it being 2 days unwashed and having used the dry shampoo. I am glad they sent it with this box because otherwise I would have never tried it and I wouldn’t know that there is dry shampoo out there that doesn’t leave me wishing I had just washed my hair instead.
