My hair has been really dry and lifeless lately and I needed something to nourish it. My regular hair mask had run out and I was in desperate need for a hair mask. So after looking at all the hair mask in the store I decided to buy this, obviously because of their ‘smoothness and life’ claims.
Professional quality intensive care for flat and heavy feeling hair.
After conditioner apply onto damp hair. Leave on for 3 minutes then rinse of thoroughly. Recommended to use 2-3 times a week.
INR 150, I think.
My take of Pantene Nature Fusion Smoothness & Life Intensive Hair Mask :
I have basically done everything to my hair. Any kind of damage or torture you think of, my hair has most probably been through it. From torturous hair rollers to crazy hair colors, from incredibly heated styling tools to chemically infused hair products. I’ve kept my hair in a tight bun for days without combing it, and then manhandling it to take the knots out. Since I love my hair so much I do try to keep it healthy, I oil my hair once a year(lol) and use hair mask few times a week.
So my hair has been very dry lately. Maybe because the sun is taking a toll on my hair (and my face). I’ve been out in sun a lot a few weeks ago. There had been nothing but constant heat on my head for 4 days straight. I don’t even go out of my house now. I’ve been looking like a vampire. I stay awake at night and sleep during the day. Sad times!
I bought this in hope that it would revive my lifeless, dry hair. I was very excited to try this. Boy, was I disappointed. I had followed the instruction on the tub. I shampooed and conditioned my hair, and then applied this. I waited for around 3 minutes. I must have read all the labels twice of all the products in my shower while waiting. So after I rinsed out the product from my hair, my hair felt very soft and smooth while it was wet. I let my hair air dry. My hair turned very wavy. My hair has always been straight with slight wave to it. But after my hair dried, my hair looked very wavy and felt greasy. My hair didn’t look like it had been washed. It looked like I hadn’t washed my hair for a few days.
There was this oily greasy sheen on my hair. You know how our hair looks if we don’t wash it for 3 days in this hot weather that’s how my hair looked. It didn’t feel weightless or soft. It felt a little coarse and heavy. Like I had a lot of product built up in my hair. I felt like if I my pull my hair even lightly all the hair on my head would fall out. My hair felt and looked very weak. It was horrible; I had to tell my mom to oil my hair, that’s how scared I was.
This hair mask is nothing special texture wise or quality wise. The consistency is the same as any Pantene conditioner maybe a bit more jello-y and it has the same chemical smell that all the Pantene products do. When I opened this tub to try it the first time I thought they had just put in some random conditioner in there. It did not look like a hair mask, because generally hair masks are a bit thicker than conditioners. I’ve had my share of bad hair products (a lot of them), but this has to be the worst.
I have only ever used one hair mask religiously and that’s the Matrix Boilage conditioning balm. I have been using that for years and years now. After I had found that I have never went back to any conditioner or hair mask I had used in the past. I think sub-consciously I’m trying to find something better than Biolage, but I don’t think I will.
Pros of Pantene Nature Fusion Smoothness & Life Intensive Hair Mask :
Cons of Pantene Nature Fusion Smoothness & Life Intensive Hair Mask :
- Doesn’t not make hair smooth or full of life.
- Makes hair look greasy.
- My hair felt weak and brittle.
By the way guys, did you know that the heat and UV rays from the sun are more damaging then our heated styling tools? I think it’s time we use heat protector on our hair not just for our straightener but for whenever we go out in the sun.
