THE REVIEW

These products were sent to me from Glam via Pantene. In all honestly didn’t have much expectations, but another drug store brand has thrown me for a loop!

Shampoo
Yes there is SLS. Actually two kinds of SLS, afterall this is a clarifying shampoo. My hair was riddled with stuff since I hadn’t clarified for a few weeks. I only needed to lather once and rinsed. Undesired squeaky clean feel? No. Tangles? No.  Pleased?Yes!

Deep Conditioner
As usual, an overnight DC with my therapy wrap[+] was in order. I rinsed the next morning after detangling in only 4 sections and found my hair to be super soft hair.  So soft I suspected a culprit ingredient. DUN DUN DUN! Yes, a cone, bis aminopropyl dimethicone to be exact. Concerned about how this chemical affects your hair? CurlChemist Tanya shares in this article[+], though this chemical is difficult to remove, it works to improve the health and feel of your hair. Not a biggie for me.

Shine Serum
Looking for shine?  Shine is what you get with this product.

All in all, I think this line is a great drug store find, especially for those who use heat appliances (like myself). The combination of each product and the ingredients contained really are those which help to prevent heat damage (read about that here[+]).

I have not used them, but I would love to give them a try when they’re available in my area. Pantene’s conditioners usually are really good.

I tried the new line and I was not impressed. It left my hair feeling dry and unconditioned. I like Pantene when I had a relaxer but for my natural hair it just didn’t do.

I used them when they had the “relaxed and natural” line for “women of color” when it was in the brown bottle with purple hues but I had a relaxer. It was my staple until I got my hands on Organic Root Stimulator products. I ve been natural for 7 months now and I dont use any heat so IDK if they would be a good fit for me right now.

I got these in one of my boxes and they have been sitting there for months. I guess I’ll give them a try on my next wash day, just to see.

No sense in letting it sit :-)
