Although I have rated this three hearts, this is a positive three.
Pantene may not be my personal go to product but it is still very effective and I would recommend it.
I am rating this having used it personally myself someone who has thick hair and having used it for someone else due to an injury who couldn't wash their hair which is a lot more manageable. We both have coloured hair.
Pantene has a colour range that I think does keep up with the competition with good results.
The product is a white Pantene branded tub that is aimed at restoring and rejuvenating your coloured hair whilst keeping that colour fresh. This takes only two minutes to work although I kept it on for longer.
The brand recommends you do this two or three times a week especially to help the moisture of your hair, however, I felt three times was not needed, twice was effective but it does depend on how often you dye your hair and what treatments you use.
This smells really nice, the cream and consistency is thick and works well into the hair almost like a conditioner and rinses well.
I felt my hair was nourished and moisturised really well, however due to my thick hair this made it feel slightly limp and didn't help the volume of my hair at all.
However, when using it for a family member, their hair was lighter and bouncer due to it being short.
We didn't see a significant change in the colour, at least there was no damage:) Long term I didn't feel it help retain my colour for any longer than it already is on my hair, but my family member felt she at least got two more weeks out of her dye which s a good thing, less dying and chemicals.
As those who regularly read my opinions will know, some six months ago, I began dyeing my hair. It’s been purple, blue and varying shades of red ever since. It became a bit of an obsession really and I once dyed my hair twice in one day! This was, in hindsight, rather silly and my hair is now in a terrible state. When I went to the hairdressers in mid-January, the stylist warned me that a patch of hair at the back of my head was so brittle that bits were breaking off. Taking her advice, I had a few inches taken off the ends and didn’t dye it for a month. I have resigned myself to going back to my natural colour (allegedly dark brown, but it’s been a while!) and a harder cross to bear is that I know I will need to have my hair cut really short soon. The brittle, dry patch is getting worse and the long-term condition of my hair is important. I have been trying to make amends to my poor desperate locks by spending lots of money on specialist hair products to rehydrate and repair my dry, damaged hair. Some have been better than others, but they have all been much more expensive than the conditioners I would buy before. The latest one to be put to the KarenUK test is the Pantene Pro-V Radiant Colour Moisturising Masque. I bought this from Boots for £3.95 (but only because Amazon don’t stock toiletries!). I spent quite a while scanning the shelves looking for something around £4 (I had vouchers to spend) that would rehydrate hair that was dry and dyed. The Moisturising Masque comes in a 150ml tub. The one for Radiant Colour is in a creamy coloured container. The directions are to use after shampooing, applying ‘liberally’ to damp hair, leave in for three minutes then rinse off. So nothing too taxing there, although the three minutes do drag. (It’s a good time to cleanse and moisturise your face!) The contents of the tub smell nice – a kind of gentle, fruity scent. The
masque itself is quite thick, white and creamy. It feels nice on your fingers and is easy enough to put on your hair, being thick enough not to run off and disappear into the bath! It is also pleasant massaging into your hair and it feels like it is helping to put some much needed moisture back into it. After rinsing off, the first test of its effectiveness comes when I try to brush my haystack into some kind of tangle-free order. As anyone who has seen my unbrushed hair will know, I have a patch at the back which sticks up like a hen’s tail unless it has some serious attention. If Offy thinks her horns are bad, she should see this! I had to buy some hair gel just so I could be seen in public! The Pantene Pro-V Moisturising Masque performs quite well in this department. My hair is relatively easy to brush through, leaving only a few stubborn tangles which inevitably result in chunks of red hair coming out. After blow-drying (slightly – don’t want to damage it even more!), it feels soft and silky and easy to run my fingers through. You wouldn’t even know about the bad patch at the back either. So it does its job and improves the condition and manageability of my hair. You just know there’s a ‘but’ coming, don’t you? Well, overall, although it is a good product and I would use it again, there are a couple of drawbacks. The 150ml tub lasts me four washes usually, which would mean just over a week of hair washing and £4 a week is a lot of money! Obviously this depends on the length and condition of each person’s hair, but mine is currently shoulder-length and – technically speaking – “in a hell of a state!” It’s also not the best product I have used. I was very impressed with the balm from Regis salons – the only inconvenience being it is available solely in their stores. The other product, which I would recommend over the Pan
tene one, is the version that Avon does. The Avon Advance Techniques range sell a Colour Protection Deep Treatment Mask (150ml for £4, but they recommend you use it weekly) and a Deep Conditioning Mask (150ml for £3), both of which I have used and have found them slightly better than the Pantene version. But overall, if your hair is desperately in need of some TLC, try the Pantene Pro-V Moisturising Masque. It helps my hair in the short term, but in the long term, I think the only cure for me will be a very short haircut. So if you’re coming to the Bristol meet in June, don’t expect me to look like the photo in my profile pic. Instead of a big cheesy grin and long bright red hair, I’ll be the one in the corner with short hair in a nondescript dark brownish colour.
I must admitt I choose Pantene Pro-V colour Intensive Care Masque because of the brand. I usually use Pantene as their shampoos and conditioners are good value and look after my hair. I have shortish curly, bouncy hair that I like to dye a lot so I need to use an intensive conditioner about once a week to keep it looking healthy. I bought the Pantene Masque in Boots for about £4, which isn't too bad a price for a decent conditioner. There are better products on the market but at a much higher price, and I found the Pantene Masque worked quite well. Its very simple to use, after shampooing you massage it right through your hair from root to tip and leave for between 5-10 minutes. Then you rinse it throughly and style as normal. I found my hair was very soft and bouncy and also had more shine than usual. I wouldn't recommend using the Intensive Masque more than once a week or it could start to make your hair need washed more frequently. But as a once-a-week-conditioner it works very well and helps prevent your colour fading, whilst adding shine and softness. The Intensive masque also smells great and lasts a long time as you only have to use a little. The Masque contains UV filters which will help to protect your hair against the sun, which is always important especially as summer is just around the corner.......
You are 5 minutes from soft managable hair that smells good and feels clean. This hair mask will make your hair feel soft and silky and smell quite good too for a reasonable price. My hair is long, and quite often dry at the ends. I always use an intensive treatment rather than an ordinary conditioner to overcome this. I have found better products, but they are often difficult to find or relatively expensive. This product however does a good job for a reasonable price, and is very easy to come by in any chemists or supermarket. For the best result when using regularly, apply only to the hair you would be able to tie back in a ponytail (to prevent a greasy scalp), comb through and leave on for five minutes. Rinse out well and style as normal. It can also be applied to all the hair, though I would not recommend this with any conditioner more than twice a month as it causes the hair to need washing more often. A good product for those wanting deep conditioning on a budget.
