Advantages: Is very nourishing but lightweight, meaning my hair isn't limp from heavy residue.
Disadvantages: None for me
I am currently part of a project on Savvy Circle and I applied to have the new Pantene Pro V Aqua Light range sent out to me to use. My hair is thin, lacks volume, and needs washing everyday because of how oily it is. Due to this I have to be careful with how much conditioner I do use, using a heavy conditioner will make my thin hair rather limp, and it doesn't help with the greasy roots problem. I do need to use a conditioner, because I suffer from that horrible problem of greasy roots but dry ends, and combined with the fact I regularly straighten my hair, finding a good conditioner for my hair can be a problem
When the Aqua Light shampoo and conditioner was launched by Pantene Pro V, I must admit I didn't give it too much attention despite having used Pantene in the past. It wasn't until I ended up with this project that I actually wondered if the 'light' claims were actually true. I have used the Pantene a lot in the past, I do think the shampoo and conditioner's they produce are brilliant, which is why I had high expectations of this new range.
Aqua Light conditioner claims to leave behind no residue, leaving hair feeling very lightweight. My hair is thin, light and fly-away anyway but I love the idea of a conditioner which won't make my fine hair limp or suffer from product build up.
The conditioner comes packaged in the usual Pantene style bottle, the theme colour is a light aqua blue, obviously to match the 'Aqua Light' name. I was surprised when I first used this conditioner because it smells great. It has a hint of the typical Pantene smell which I associate with their other products, but it also has it almost fruity touch to it which is really pleasant, not over-powering, and makes a nice change from the scent of their other products.
The conditioner is quite thick, but I find a small amount does go far. It instantly smoothens out the ends of my hair, and I can instantly feel the difference, my hair feeling much more nourished and healthy. It's easy to wash out too, and I never leave conditioners in my hair for long, usually washing it out instantly, as with my hair type I can't really leave it to sink in too much or it becomes limp and heavy.
When my hair is dry I can really tell the difference. My hair is softer, smoother and thankfully, not at all limp but feathery light. It also helps with any split ends I have, and despite using hair straightens it doesn't dry out but stays looking shiny and healthy. I've gone through both bottles now and I will now go onto purchase more because I do love the results that come from using this conditioner. Pantene is stocked in most supermarkets and Boots.
Summary: A great conditioner which I won't hesitate to use again in the future
