My disappointment was a surprise

I am a long time user and obvious fan of Pantene products. I have naturally curly hair and it is a necessity to have a conditioner that actually works. If not, then I am left with a tangled, dry mess. My usual shampoo and conditioner choices are; Pantene Pro-V Shampoo, Hydrating Curls and Pantene Pro-V Conditioner, Hydrating Curls, so I was excited to try out their new line aimed at curly hair.

As it is I only shampoo my hair every other day, any more and it dries my hair out beyond help. Which makes my conditioner a bigger part of my daily routine. I will note that I went ahead and purchased the Pantene Pro-V Curly Hair Series Dry to Moisturized Shampoo to use along with the conditioner. Quite often when a company makes their products they suggest they work better in combination with each other. This may just be a way to get you to buy more of their products or it might have some truth, but I usually don't see any difference?

As for my actual results, they were less than what I had anticipated which actually surprised me. I've been using the conditioner for 5 days now and my hair is noticeably drier than when I started. With the shampoo, my hair feels clean after rinsing which is good, but with the conditioner I am not left with the soft feeling I am used to, but more like if I had shampooed twice. Once out of the shower trying to brush out my hair has been a challenge and several times I've had to resort to a spray on conditioner to finish.

While I think it's great that Pantene is continuously trying to improve their products, sometimes what they already have is as good as it's going to get. While I'll probably finish off the shampoo I purchased, I've retired the conditioner and will go back to preferred Pantene tomorrow.

A hairdresser told me a long time ago that Pantene is the best nonprofessional brand there is, and it's about as good as the salon brands. Because of that, I've made an effort to try lots of Pantene products. Unfortunately, I've been largely disappointed, and this is no different.    I have naturally curly/wavy/frizzy hair that I generally blow dry straight. Sometimes I leave it curly, though, and for that, I need a good conditioner that leaves it looking curly and not frizzy. …

I'll be honest with you. I don't have curly hair. Well, maybe for a year or two in high school, but that's another story. I know that the Pantene Pro-v Curly Hair Conditioner is not intended for my kind of mane. But I figured, "What the heck, conditioner is conditioner". I realize that isn't entirely true, but I certainly didn't think it could hurt.    What I right? Yes! In fact, I have to say that the Pro-v Curly Hair Conditioner is one of the better after shampoo products I've …

I am an avid Pantene user, aside from Aussie it is the only brand I use because it really works. so of course I had to try this. My hair is super thick and curly and fros when I let it air dry, but with this it dries soft and much better. It leaves my hair super silky and my curls tamer. HIGHLY recommended for you curly heads out there!

The product I received from VINE was for shampoo, not conditioner. The product smells great. It left my hair soft. Not coated or stripped. It decreased the frizz-which is saying quite a bit during the current Michigan high humidiity levels. I am looking forward to using this again and would buy it. I love the smell and the way my hair feels.    I am getting negative helpful votes for this review. I am expected to review every free product I get through Amazon Vine. I did not …
