PANTENE PRO-V AQUA LIGHT NOURISHING SPRAY
I have naturally thick hair that is neither curly nor straight, if I had to try and describe it I would say that it really does resemble poodle hair on a bad day and spaniel ears on a good day! It is very porous and seems to inhale conditioners, as such I have always used a good leave in conditioner on my hair after washing I find that it helps detangle any knots that the curls have got into and hopefully helps my curls to form into nice waves rather than a poodle frizz.
Although I have had this about a year now I have only just started re using it, I am trying to be good and finish off some of my lotions and potions before I buy more.
THE PRODUCT ....
Pantene is what I would call an every day brand name, I think most of us will have used one of their products at some point or other, they produce a wide variety of hair care products from shampoo's and conditioners through to styling products. Pantene is actually owned by Proctor and Gamble.
Pantene say this product as a lightweight nourishing dual phase spray for strong hair, I am not sure what this means but I am assuming the dual phase relates to the fact that this product would not actually look out of place in a child's science set. When left to settle in the bottle the product actually separates, a blue foamy type substance settles at the top and a clean water like liquid settles at the bottom. Before you use the spray you need to shake the bottle well to mix these back together so they combine to produce a pale blue liquid. The fun part is that they will separate again once left, yes I really am that sad that it entertains me!
This product is really easy to use, you simply shake to combine the foam and liquid then press down onto the pump action spray nozzle and spray liberally onto your hair. I always use this on wet hair but I can not actually see anything on the bottle that says if it should be used on either so I would say it can be used on both.
The spray has the usual scent of Pantene products which smells really nice and fresh and does stay on my hair for around 24 hours after washing.
This product is part of the Pantene aqua light range that are products designed to be light on the hair and not weigh the hair down. I would agree that other than the scent and my hair feeling softer after use that there is no nasty residue left in my hair after using this.
THE PACKING ....
The product comes in a small clear plastic bottle a little taller than a can of fizzy drink in height, the bottle has a spray type nozzle to disperse the spray finely through the hair. The nozzle is a really bright greeny blue colour.
The front of the bottle has the Pantene logo, the name of the product and what I think is supposed to be a graphic replication of the actual product as it combines. There is a pinky purple horizontal line across the centre of the bottle. At the base we are informed what the spray is in several different languages.
The back of the bottle has the ingredients, bar code and information about Proctor and Gamble.
There is nothing that I can say I particularly love about this product but there is also nothing that I find wrong with it. I think I have used three bottles of this since it was launched but intermittently between other products and I am not sure if they are still producing this. My last bottle was actually purchased at a pound store and a quick look now I can not see it for sale at Superdrug or Boots online. I find it a little tough to get overly excited about this product other than the fact it separates in the bottle it is pretty much your run of the mill leave in conditioner.
Would I buy it again? If I found it yes!
Does it work? I would say yes, it is a nice leave in conditioner and does what it says on the bottle, it is light weight and does not weigh down my hair so it gets a tick here.
Would I recommend it? Yes and no! I would not jump up and down and rave about this product, however if someone was to ask me about this product in specific then yes I would.
I have no idea what this is retailing at now, I think the most I paid for my bottles was about £5 so they were not expensive and last a good few months of use.
Although this is not something I rave about I have to give it 4 out of 5 stars because it really does do what it is supposed to.
Summary: Perfectly acceptable product.
