Pantene Pro V Smooth and Silky Conditioner
The latest range from Pantene comes with a 14-day commitment where they claim that you can escape from your toughest hair problems like split ends, hair loss, unruly tangles within 14 days of using products from this range, as has been experienced by 150 million people in 40 countries.
The Pantene Pro V Smooth and Silky Range claims to tame unruly tangles. It coats each hair shaft with conditioning particles that form a protective layer on the cuticle, so hair is smoother and shinier thanks to better alignment of its fibres.
Pantene’s Pro V formulas go right to where your hair is the most damaged and in need. The result is hair that’s well balanced, well nourished and beautiful.

My Take on Pantene Pro v Smooth and Silky Conditioner:
The conditioner comes in a plain white bottle with a flip cap at the bottom. The cap appears to be tight and leak proof.
The back of the bottle had a couple of stickers, one for the ingredients and one for the sticking address. Directions of use are to apply on hair after shampooing and then rinse off. They haven’t mentioned to leave it on for a few minutes, though I guess leaving it would be better. They recommend using it with a Pantene Smooth and Silky Shampoo.
The product itself is thick and creamy and not at all runny. It smells pleasant and somehow reminds me of happy things. My hair was smoother and softer after washing, but it definitely was nowhere near shiny. Their claim of manageable, tangle free hair is true, it was a lot easier to comb, but appearance wise, not at all the shinier, nourished look that they claimed. My frizz also, was not really under control, and all this after I had oiled my hair and left it for half an hour prior to washing. Since my hair is curly, it looks all the more drier and lacking of a healthy shine.

Pros of Pantene Pro V Smooth and Silky Conditioner:
- Easily available.
- Reasonably priced.
- Long shelf life.
- Pleasant fragrance.
- Thick and non-runny consistency.
- Hair is softer to touch.
- Tangles are much fewer and combing is easier.
- No parabens visible in ingredient list.
Cons of Pantene Pro V Smooth and Silky Conditioner:
- Packaging is not very attractive.
- Hair doesn’t have any added shine or nourished feel.
- Frizz is not controlled.
- Dry look persists even after oiling.
- Not recommended for curly hair.
Not at all satisfactory, especially considering the tall claims made. My biggest problems are frizz and dry, undernourished look; and both these problems were not solved. It was however easier to comb and more manageable in that sense. The main plus for me was the pleasant fragrance.
Would I Buy This Again?
No, I don’t think I would.
