Pantene ProV Ice Shine Serum
Advantages: Price, sits on my hair well, great effects
Disadvantages: Stays on my hands, can take some getting used to.
I am very picky when it comes to the serums I use in my hair, so I was quite reluctant to try this one out when my mum bought it a while ago.
This serum is widely available and can be found at various prices.
I currently buy the serum from Boots for £4.51, which I personally don't think is a bad price compared to other serums which hold a high price tag because of their brand names.
When it comes to serums, there are various aspects of a serum which I look for to use and this serum didn't actually grab me straight away.
I like to use a 'light' serum which isn't sticky, doesn't weigh my hair down or make it look greasy and adds a smooth and shine to my hair.
When I first used this serum, the first thing I noticed was its thickness... It is a lot thicker than others I have tried. Because of this, it did take me a while to get used to using as I find it tricky to apply straight to my hair.
When applying this serum to my hair, I find it easier to rub the serum between the palms of my hands for a while to thin out the serum and make it easier to lightly apply to the ends of my hair and the areas which I prefer. This seems to work and I now apply the serum with ease almost every day!
I apply this serum usually after I have dried and styled my hair, although I sometimes feel the need to add some in whilst my hair is still wet as it can sometimes feel brittle. When I do this, I do find the serum adds moisture and support to my hair and takes away the brittle thin feeling.
The only downside to using the serum on wet hair is that for me, it makes my hair feel heavy when drying it, the serum makes my hair feel greasy once dried and I usually have to leave it for a while before I style it.
When using this serum, I usually add one full pump plus a little bit more, rubbed between my fingers I find this goes a long way. I have medium to long length hair and only apply to my ends and through the lengths when and where needed.
The worse thing about this serum, is that it stays on my hands after applying and I always have to wash it off or rub my hands with a towel.
This serum makes my hair feel soft, supported and manageable. I personally don't like the way my hair feels when it has just been washed and I love to use serum to keep my hair under control. The serum adds a shine to my hair without making it look greasy and I have found when applying, it's not easy to accidentally add 'too much' as the serum sinks in quick.
The serum comes in a bottle of 50ml with a handy pump applicator which I find easy to use. I use the serum most days and for me the serum lasts ages. The bottle I am currently using has last me over 3 months and I still have half of it left.
The serum holds a slight fragrance without being over powering and I find it sits lovely in my hair and takes away any horrid smells from the straightening.
Overall, this is a serum which I personally love. I don't think it's one for everyone, but it's worth a try! I love it and for the price I'll continue to buy it.
Thankyou for reading, I also post on Ciao
