No, of course it's not free, but this paticular bottle of shampoo was left in my bathroom after 4 different family members recently descended on us for a few days, so I don't know who was the culprit, but I shall enjoy benefitting from my little windfall...thanks guys.
This shampoo comes in a tall thin, clear plastic bottle, with a clear plastic topand a turquoise pop up lid. I have the version for fine hair which is slightly different to the picture above. It has a turquoise and light brown label, which I find quite plain and not very appealing. The label tells me it is Pantene Pro V, and the only other words written are quite tiny where it tells me it is for fine hair, it is Aqualight, and it is silicone free. I do not know what the significance of this is, but I suppose it must be good if they make a point of telling me. On the rear of the bottle is a utilitarian white sticker, giving all the usual instructions and information that we all ignore completely.
The shamppo itself is completely clear and of the usual slow running consistency you might expect. It has a quite delicious fruity fragrance, like a big bowl of apples and pears, that gives me a clean crisp sensation while lathering it up. A squirt into my palm the size of a 2 pound coin was enough to lather up my shoulder length, but fine hair very well, and it feels smooth and creamy in my hair. It washes out no faster or slower than any other shampoo.
I would normally always condition my fine, dry and slightly damaged hair, but for the purposes of this review I shampooed my hair this morning, and didn't condition. I am overall quite pleased with the results. My hair of course did not comb through as easily as it normally would, but it has dried suprisingly soft and healthy. It feels light and not at all weighted down, and the lovely smell has lingered nicely. Of course if I had conditioned my hair the smell would have been hidden by the conditioner, unless I decided to go and buy the matching conditioner for this product.
Would I buy it again?
A quick internet search tells that the 250ml bottle that I have retails for 2.79, whereas a larger sized 400ml bottle is 3.99. At these prices, No I would not buy it again as I like a bargain and think this is s bit pricey, but I would definitely choose it if I saw it on special offer somewhere.
