Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner

Price: $7.95 each

Obtained: PR sent


I used Pantene shampoo and conditioner until I moved out of home and could only afford the even budget stuff. Since then I’ve tried out several different options from high end to extreme low end so when the PR offered so send this I was interested to see what had changed since I last used it years ago. I hear a lot of talk about how Pantene is bad for hair because some of the chemicals it contains weighs does the hair and damages hair, I haven’t experienced that particularly with Pantene but I did notice when I switched from regular shampoo/conditioner to using baking soda I did notice how much lighter and healthier my hair felt.

So going back to this the first change I noticed was that the shampoo was like a clear jelly. It lathered very easily and my hair did feel clean afterward. It washed out a lot more easily than I remember older Pantene doing. The conditioner seemed very similar to the older ones I’d used though it did have a more jelly-ish consistency. I found this too washed out very easily. My hair felt light and silky after using.

This is primarily aimed at women with thin hair, I don’t have thin hair I have thick frizzy hair so I think that’s where my main problems came from. I found that when using this my post-wash hair felt frizzier and less sleek. I also found I needed to wash more often than previously to maintain the clean feeling I like. I hate having dirty feeling hair but I also hate having wet hair so having to do it more often made me a bit sad XD

So overall opinions, I think would definitely suggest this as an alternative to the old Pantene especially for women with thinner hair because it did give me extra volume. I personally wouldn’t buy it again because I prefer waiting longer between washes but as my problems were due to my hair type rather than the product I would recommend it to others who fit the product better.

Would I buy Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner again: Not for me but maybe for someone else with the type of hair it’s aimed at.
