Pantene 2 Minute Intensive Repair Masque
When I have a nice relaxing soak in the bath I like to leave conditioner in my hair for as long as possible to give it an intensive treatment every now and then. Having dyed hair and being a hair straightener addict my hair definitely needs a good conditioner.
The Pantene 2 Minute Intensive Repair Masque comes in a large round plastic tub. The tub is a nice shiny turquoise colour with a golden lid. The tub lid untwists but the gold top section also lifts up to reveal the cream inside, I think you are supposed to open it this way but I find it snaps my nails! The tub has the Pantene branding with a gold strip and some product information across the front and the back has more
detailed ingredients and usage information.
This intensive masque is made for Normal to Thick hair types and is described as an intensive hydration and resilience for dry and damaged hair. The product contains micro-nourishers which are meant to help to lock in moisture and protect your hair against styling damage and make it look shiny and healthy.
The Intensive Repair Masque
The Pantene 2 minute hair masque is a thick creamy gel like texture which wobbles slightly like jelly. The cream has an amazing salon smell to it, which is slightly fruity and very rich and intense. This smell stays with you whilst the masque is on and after you have rinsed the product off.
Once you have washed your hair with shampoo you apply the masque going from the tips and massaging the cream up into your roots. The cream is very supple and easy to apply but not so much that it slides off your hand before you can get it onto your hair. The instructions state that you should leave this masque on for 2 minutes and then rinse off, however I sometimes leave this on for 30 minutes plus whilst I am soaking in the bath. I do not if it does any better a job on my hair but it can't do any harm!
After rinsing the cream off my hair smells and feels beautiful. Once dry my hair is noticeably more shiny and conditioned and feels much healthier to the touch. SO I can certainly recommend and vouch for this 2 minute intensive masque from Pantene. It is a great weekly boost that I like to treat my hair to.
A 200 ml tub of this intensive repair masque currently costs £4.49 in Tesco, this will last me a couple of months using it once a week and as such I think it is a good purchase for a nourishing hair masque.
I've always had long thick hair that is prone to frizz so I'm always on the look out for something to help tame it. I died my hair (permanently) a while back and that caused severe dryness in my ends. I really wanted to find something that would help get my hair shiny and smooth again.
I've had plenty of experience with Pantene products. My grandma and mother both use Pantene shampoo religiously. As a child my hair was always washed with Pantene. However as I got older I realized that Pantene wasn't that great for my hair. The green Pantene caused my hair to fall out. Naturally this kind of scared me away from Pantene products however I heard good things about this masque so I was willing to give it a try.
This masque is quite expensive at £4.69 from Boots. However Boots do have an offer on at the moment, hair care is buy one get one half price.
The packaging of this product is horrible. It took me a while to get the hang of opening it and the instructions weren't particularly helpful. There is an indent where you have to push the lid up whilst making sure you hold the tub securely. It does take a few attempts but if you are really struggling you can just unscrew the lid which I tend to do most of the time.
After opening the tub you have to peel away some silver foil to get to the product. The product smells amazing. It has that typical 'Pantene smell' but better and sweeter. I love it. The masque is a lovely shiny white colour of a medium consistency. The consistency is a bit thinner than most hair masques.
After shampooing, I take a good £2 sized dollop in my hand and spread it evenly throughout my hair with my fingers. I avoid my roots as I'm paranoid that its going to make my hair even more greasy! I leave the product in my hair for 2 minutes like it says on the packaging.
As I am washing off the masque, I can feel that my hair is so much softer and smoother. The masque washes off really easily and I am left with such soft hair. The scent lingers for ages which I love. It also really helps with frizz so my hair is a lot more manageable. My previously dry ends are now moistured and smooth, I also recently noticed that it helps to reduce the appearance of split ends which is an added bonus!
In conclusion I was pleasantly surprised with this product and I will definitely repurchase as it does what it says on the tin!
