Pantene has introduced a new era of shampoos with Anti-Oxidant technology that helps reduce the daily oxidative damage that all hair faces. Although there are many sources of oxidants – from environmental oxidant (e.g. UV light), or chemical treatments such as peroxides – this technology stems from the discovery that this oxidative process is amplified by an unsuspected source, copper, found in everyone’s wash water. This technology works to help preserve the health of hair, as it targets, captures and helps to neutralize excessive copper impurities in hair. Reducing copper helps prevent the formation of free radicals, and reduces the fracture and erosion of hair’s vital proteins.

I’ve tested Pantene Pro-V Intensive Repair products for two weeks, and you can see the results in the photos.

I really like the new formula of the shampoo. It’s creamy, so it doesn’t dry out the hair, and it cleans the scalp really well; better than some common drugstore shampoos.

The formula of the Intensive Repair conditioner has also changed. I’ve used the conditioner as well, because it preserves the keratin, so the two of them have been responsible for the shine and the healthier look of my hair.

However, the formula of the conditioner is not strong enough for complete care of my hair. My hair is bleached, so it’s really dry and it needs stronger treatments, such as 2 Minutes Intensive Repair Masque from the same collection. Two years ago, I reviewed it and I can still say that this is one of the best drugstore hair masks. It has changed its look (the packaging is now white and gold), but its quality is the same. After use, my hair is really soft and smooth.

2 Minutes Intensive Repair Masque

This mask, as well as the entire Intensive Regeneration collection is designed for strengthening and intensive regeneration of the hair. The collection consists of shampoo, conditioner, 2 Minutes Intensive Repair Masque, Split Ends Mender Serum and Instant Repair & Overnight Repair Spray. They are designed to provide shine and healthy look to the hair by protecting it from damage caused by styling and also to return vitality to the hair that is damaged, dry and dull.

The goal of the 2 Minutes Intensive Repair Masque is to provide intense moisture to extremely dry and damaged hair. Given the fact that my hair is bleached, I do not expect much from the drugstore brands, but I’m really happy when some of them surprise me. :) That was the case this time; I really liked the mask. After using it, the hair is soft and shiny and brushing goes easily. I like the fact that this is a quick treatment. As its name suggests, this mask should be kept only 2 minutes on the hair which to me is a big plus.

So, this is one of the best drugstore masks and it is very affordable at the same time. Be sure to try it out!

Style & Protect Extra Strong Hold Mousse

This foam is a part of the turquoise line, which includes products that are designed for normal hair that can be damaged and dry from styling products.

Pantene team says that normal hair is not heavy and flexible enough and that it has a tendency to absorb humidity and to become fluffy. Also, it is prone to dryness and damage. Developing a formula for styling this type of hair, Pantene scientists paid special attention to hair strengthening and protection from humidity.

Collection contains Defined Curls Mousse, Style & Protect Extra Hold Hairspray and Style & Protect Extra Hold Mousse. I tried the last one.

Style & Protect Extra Hold Mousse contains nutrient complexes which help protect your hair from damage caused by hot air and brushing. Has extra strong hold degree – 4 of 5 available.

I’ve never wear complicated hairstyles, because I prefer that my hair is straight. It is naturally really straight and as such it is not a great base for complex hairstyles. So, I used this mousse for some simple hairstyles. It did a good job – kept my style in shape. It has very nice scent and I like the fact that it nourishes the hair. I cannot confirm how much care it provided to my hair, but it definitely did not damage it.
