This post is a little different from anything I’ve shared before. First a little background on where the review below is coming from.
Influenster is an online community that finds everyday people with social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, etc. to receive complementary products to give their honest opinions on. People all over have reviewed hundreds of products, and others can then search the Influenster site to decide if they would like them, or not! So far, I’ve shared my opinion on products from Pond’s, Nivea, and now, Pantene!
Pantene sent me these huge complementary bottles of their Sheer Volume shampoo and conditioner to test out and review! I was so excited when I received my VoxBox (the boxes that Influenster sends the testers everything they need to create their reviews), and couldn’t believe how heavy it was. I had assumed that I would just be receving sample-sized tubes, or maybe a regular full-size bottles. Nope! Definitely not the case…
These bottles are going to last me forever, and that’s saying a lot with the amount of hair I have. Hairs for days. Plus, I’m loving this shampoo and conditioner set so far! The formula is super thick, and I love how the shampoo really lathers up in your hair. I let the shampoo sit in my hair for a minute or two before rinsing out, and give the conditioner 4-5 so that it has time to sink in.
The first few times I tried these out, I wanted to make sure I was getting a 100% clear picture of how they affect my hair. I normally use a repairing hair mask and/or a leave-in conditioner to help with tangles, but I was curious if this conditioner would take care of that step on its own. For the most part, my hair was relatively easy to comb through, but I did have to use a little detangling spray to help out. My hair has been pretty finicky lately, so I’m sure on more well-behaved hair, it would have been a little easier to comb out. This might be the one problem area I ran into, but again, my hair hasn’t been easy to deal with in the past few months.
As far as the volume boost that the shampoo-conditioner combo claims to give your hair, I’m pretty impressed! I notice that my hair has a thicker feel to it and a little extra va-va-voom once it is blown dry. The extra volume lasts all day, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Overall, I think this is a great product! I’m so happy I was able to try out these complementary bottles Pantene sent me, and this review was definitely my honest opinion. If you’re in the market for a shampoo and conditioner duo that will add some extra volume to your ‘do, I highly recommend giving Pantene’s Sheer Volume set a try 🙂
Ta ta for now!
