“ Brand: Pantene / Type: Hair Shampoo / Subcategory: Anti-Dandruff / Helps against: Anti-Dandruff / What it does: Rejuvenates, „
I recently tried this shampoo as it was on offer in Sainsburrys. I have also being shown numerous commercials on the TV and thought that I would give it a go since it was on special offer.
Well what can I say. This shampoo is terrible. Firstly the smell is horrible. I honestly cant describe the smell other than saying it smells sickly to me. I hope you understand what I mean when I say that. Well I think you should.
Also it isnt dermo togically tested which means it shouldnt be used by people with sensitive skin or people who have problems such as Exyma ( Not sure of spelling). It leaves your skin itchy and feeling irritated.
Lastly it doesnt leave your hair feelin clean. I found that after a week using it my hair was greasy and felt very gritty.
I honestly do not want to waste any more of my time or yours talking about this product. Just please steer well clear of it as it realy is a waste of money and will leave you feeling disapointed.
Thank you for reading my review and have a good weekend.

My husband started using the Pantene Pro-V products to help improve the quality of his hair, but had to switch between that and Head & Shoulders to control his dandruff. But when he found that Pantene had a dandruff shampoo, he literally grabbed it off the shelf.
My husband has hair that is thinning on top and he's found that the Pro-V products really make his hair feel thicker and healthier. While these products haven't helped with re-growth, his patch certainly hasn't gotten any thinner since he started using Pantene Pro-V products. But he also wanted something for his dandruff, and it seems like he's found a winner here.
The Pantene Pro-V products come in very attractive, new bottles these days (not the one pictured above - check out the web pages to see what this looks like now), and the anti-dandruff shampoo has a very attractive new silver and light blue design, with a rim of metallic light blue on the oval flip top. There's a nice edge on the flip top so it isn't difficult to open this with wet hands.
When you first open this product, you'll find that the scent is one that has no medicinal overtones to it. It has a soft and clean scent much akin to Dove cream soaps. Using a small amount you get a very rich, thick lather with this shampoo, which doesn't overpower you with the scent. This shampoo rinses out very well, and I think it has a bit of a conditioner in it, since afterwards your hair will feel smooth as if you had used a conditioner. Since neither I nor my husband have long hair, I can't tell you if this shampoo leaves your hair with more or less tangles than if you had used a conditioner.
When your hair is dry, the scent seems to stay, but not too strong as to overpower your perfume. Since my husband started using this shampoo, his hair looks shiny - but not greasy - and very healthy, and even seems thicker than before. Plus, he really doesn't have any more problems with his dandruff. However, when I used it, it didn't control my very bad dandruff at all, and I had to return to using my Head & Shoulders. No problem there - now we both have our own shampoos and they last a whole lot longer that way.
I haven't been able to find an exact price for this product in the UK, but here in Israel this shampoo is slightly more expensive than the rest of the Pantene Pro-V line and about the same as Head & Shoulders. In general, its price is usually on the higher end of the shampoos. Still, it costs much less than some of the fancier shampoos like L'Oreal. So, the value for the money is only good.
In sum, I'd say that if you want a nice smelling shampoo that will give your hair gloss and thickness, but will also control that light case of dandruff, this may just be the shampoo for you. However, if you have really bad dandruff, you really must find something stronger.
Thanks for reading!

Pantene Pro-V products are a product of Proctor & Gamble, and they have a great web page which you can find at http://www.pantene.co.uk/?flash=true. I won't list the ingredients here since I can't translate them from the Hebrew on my bottle, but I'm sure other reviews here have the ingredients listed. If you have any questions, you can call them on their toll free numbers 0800 028 3578 (UK) and 1800 509 496 (IRL). I looked but I didn't see if they declared anywhere if they do or don't do animal testing.
Pantene Pro-V products are available at most drug stores and department stores for around £3.30 for a 400ml bottle.
Try to control yourselves people, but today I will be reviewing Pantene Pro V Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Due to the recent need for hair gel and mousses I had found that my scalp had dried slightly and dandruff was beginning to appear. As I?ve tried Head and Shoulders previously and it didn?t work so I went in search of a new shampoo that may claimed to rid my hair of dandruff. I stumbled across Pantene in Tesco?s and the shampoo and conditioner was on special offer at £3.49 for the pair. The shampoo comes in a 400ml white container with a cool blue front. The front of the packaging is very minimalist, however the brand name is clearly shown on the front in black lettering. Pantene Pro V Anti-Dandruff shampoo claims to remove and prevent dandruff along with keeping hair healthy looking and strong by way of a unique formula that lets pro-vitamin B5 penetrate hair to keep it nourished. As this is shampoo application is easy, simply wet hair and apply the product as necessary. My hair is fairly short now (approx. 2 inches long) and I found that an amount roughly the size of a two pence piece produced enough lather to wash with. The shampoo itself is white in colour and has a fresh clean wonderful smell that is very easy on the nose. After lathering the shampoo in my hair for a few minutes the shampoo rinsed easily from my hair. Whilst rinsing I noticed that my hair felt really smooth to the touch. After drying my hair with a towel and then blowing it dry I noticed an improved shine to my hair and instead of looking limp and lifeless it had body and seemed slightly thicker/heavier than normal. On inspection of my scalp there were no noticeable traces of dandruff and I?m happy to say that after using this product for in excess of 3 weeks I haven?t seen any dandruff in my scalp or on clothes. In addition to this my hair is shinier, more manageable and stronger than before I started using Pantene. As stated earli
er, the smell of the product is very clean and fresh but not too overpowering. After my hair had been dried the smell of the product became more subtle but lasted for hours after. Would I recommend this product? Wholeheartedly. I have never used a shampoo that actually did everything it said it would until now. Pantene Pro V Anti-Dandruff shampoo will leave your hair dandruff free, shiny and full of extra body. It is a worthy successor to Head & Shoulders in my bathroom. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Pantene Pro V is a brand of the huge multi-national Proctor & Gamble. P & C can be contacted about the product on 0800 0283578 or: Proctor & Gamble UK Weybridge Surrey KT13 0XP A whole website is dedicated to Pantene products at www.pantene.com.

Thanks to Pantene Anti-Dandruff L have changed my opinion because having used this for about 3 weeks l now have worse dandruff than l have had in years. My scalp is very itchy and the only thing l've changed in that time is this shampoo.Also at the cost to condition? I recently purchased a 200ml bottle of Pantene Prov-V Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, for ‘True Confidence’. It comes in a snazzy new design bottle thats creamy white with Blue and Silver logos and lettering. It is a ‘whitish’ cream, quite thin in texture and does not have that very strong aroma compared to others like Head and Shoulders. I have to use a dandruff shampoo every few months to keep at bay the little nit of dandruff that l get, or should l say used to get, now l have a snowstorm when l shake my head, its awful. I am using Head and Shoulders now and it is not as bad as it was a few days ago. But still pretty horrendous. I won't go out unless l absolutely have to. I used the Pantene as instructed and conditioned afterwards with Pantene conditioner for Curly hair. But the condition of my hair even after conditioning was very poor, so much so that l used an intensive conditioner as well on the ends. It was ok then but the shampoo really dried it out. It says to Lather, rinse and repeat. There are also Cautions. Avoid contact with eyes (so l can’t do my eyelashes, then?). If contact occurs rinse thoroughly with water (not washing-up liquid?). If irritation persists contact your doctor, thats if you can see(and expect a thorough telling off for getting shampoo in your eyes). These are quite obvious instructions, though l suppose there must be people who need to be told these things. I get quite concerned about the ingredients in these products. The first ingredient (and therefore the largest) is Aqua, do they think that we don’t know that Aqua is Water? Do they
think we won’t realise that we have paid so much for mostly water? Also does anybody know what Hydrogenated Polydecene or Timethylopropane Tricapylate/Tricaprate are? I’m putting these things on my head, are they seeping in and affecting my brain? Everyone says l’m getting scattier!! Well my advice to Pantene would be to make a seperate dandruff shampoo for Greasy, Normal and Dry hair. Then we with dry hair would not get our condition worsened by their product, how can it be suitable for all hair types? Also they should look perhaps into why it has caused such a reaction in me and maybe others like me. To conclude, not to be recommended by me if you have hair especially coloured/permed or dry hair! Or dandruff!!?? I will not be using this product again but will still use Pantene products generally.
