Product Review: Pantene Pro-V Curly Series (Dry to Moisturized)
After watching TLC Extreme Couponing, I became a little extreme about couponing and sampling. I went to the Proctor & Gamble website and signed up to receive free samples and coupons for their products. One of the sample categories was hair; I had the option of choosing between their new "hair type" products. So out of the fine, medium-thick, color treated and curly, I chose.......CURLY!
When I received the products last week, I wasn't too thrilled. I read the ingredients on the shampoo and saw Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, and Cocamidopropyl Betaine; really, all three! However, I wanted to try the products together, so I drenched my hair with aloe vera juice, olive oil, and coconut oil to protect my strands against the harsh detergents. I can't give a review on the shampoo because I only lathered once and with the help of the pre-shampoo treatment my hair did not feel stripped at all. Thank God!
Directly after I rinsed the shampoo, I applied the conditioner and OMG! My hair had so much slip; my fingers glided through my hair like a hot knife through butter. For those of you that don't understand, slip is a big deal for us kinky curly girls.
Even though I was amazed by the results of this conditioner, remember just last week I said I had enough conditioner to last me the rest of the year. Well, the fact that I fell in love with this product is not helping my will power. I also said that I would only buy natural products and this conditioner doesn't fall in that category either..SIGH! I need an product junkie intervention.
