Pantene Relaxed & Natural! Review

My hair and I are DEFINITELY not new to the Pantene Relaxed & Natural brand. In fact, I have been using it since it came out so when I had the opportunity to review, I jumped on it.

I used the Dry to Moisturized Shampoo and the Dry-to Moisturized Conditioner. Most ladies with natural hair tend to complain about dryness. I probably get one e-mail a day asking about products to moisturize hair. Alot of people don’t realize that that starts with your shampoo and conditioner. They have to be moisturizing, like Pantene’s Relaxed & Natural line.

Deets on the Shampoo:

Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural Dry to Moisturized Shampoo gently cleanses African-American hair without over-drying. Formulated with moisturizing ingredients, this shampoo penetrates deep and infuses hair with shine. The formula, with moisturizing oils, tames unruly hair and leaves it strong against damage. This moisturizing shampoo works for chemically-relaxed or natural African American hair.

Deets on the Conditioner

Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural Dry to Moisturized Conditioner is formulated with moisturizing ingredients that help keep African-American hair soft, manageable and shiny. This moisturizing conditioner leaves hair strong against damage while enhancing shine. Gentle enough for chemically-relaxed or natural African-American hair.

I decided to use the products for 5 days straight to give a thorough review. Prior to, I hadn’t washed my hair in a week which is no bueno for me. I couldn’t wait to wash and condition my hair because it definitely needed it lol.

Starting with the shampoo- a little shampoo goes a long way. The shampoo is very creamy and moisturizing. It definitely got all of my product build up from the past week out and I slightly detangled just using my fingers.

When I got to the conditioner, I loved the consistency. This was also creamy and my hair felt immediately smooth when I put the conditioner in section by section to coat all of my hair. This time I was detangling with my paddle brush and got all of the little tangles out!!! This conditioner definitely made it easy for me 🙂 (which you all know is a BIG deal for me or for most girls with long, thick hair)

While rinsing out the conditioner, my hair felt smooth and like silk!! My hair was shiny after, just like promised:

Smooth, moisturized, tangle free, & shiny!!??!! What more could I ask for???!!

This is a great prep for me to do a Wash & Go or a Twist Out. Like I said before, it’s not just the products you put on after you wash it…you have to set the foundation.

It is definitely clear that Pantene did a lot of research prior to creating their line for women of color. There are different hair needs that we have versus women of other races. We need moisture and we want soft and shiny hair.

The shampoo and conditioner is definitely the cure for dry hair.
