REVIEW: Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Hair Collection

Hello ladies! Did you know that Pantene Pro-V's Natural & Relaxed Line has now been divided into two separate lines? According to one's specific needs, folks now have the option to choose products from the Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural Collection or the Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Collection.  I was intrigued when I initially saw the Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Collection online, as the products promise to provide 72 hours of moisture. I don't know about you guys, but my relaxed tresses have been in dire need of moisture lately!  So when I was granted the opportunity to try the new hair goodies from the Pantene Truly Relaxed Hair Collection I was ecstatic! Now I've tried the products and cannot wait to share the results with you guys!

But before I go in, here are a few details about the Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Hair Care Collection:

Pantene responds to your hair's structure to help bring out the beauty that's yours alone.
Pantene Truly Relaxed Line is a line of products designed to provide moisture for relaxed hair.  The relaxing process can be particularly damaging so each strand needs gentle cleansing with protection against dryness and breakage so you can grow healthy looking hair.

African American women with chemically relaxed hair can be left with excessively dry hair. This collection features gentle cleansing with protection against dryness and breakage with oil-enriched Pro-V shampoo and conditioner that moisturizes and protects while still leaving your hair clean and shiny.

The Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Hair Collection contains the following products:

Intense Moisturizing Shampoo- cleans & helps restore moisture to relaxed hair
Lightweight Shampoo- gently cleans relaxed hair without weigh-down
Moisturizing Conditioner- moisturizes relaxed hair without unwanted weight
Oil Creme Moisturizer- deeply moisturizes & shines

Thoughts Upon Initial Use:
  • Packaging-  I love the packaging of these products.  The bottles are very sleek and attractive.  They each also stand easily in the shower or on the counter without having to be turned upside down and contain sturdy tops that allow for adequate dispensing of product.  
  • Scent-  Each product has a light, floral scent. Though the scent is light, it is quite invigorating!
  • Affordability- The shampoos and conditioner each contain 12.6 fl oz (while the moisturizer is 8.7 fl oz), which is a great amount of product for only $4.99!   
Overall Thoughts After Use:  

I thoroughly enjoyed cleansing my hair with the Intense Moisturizing Shampoo.  At first, I was nervous about using a new shampoo, as many shampoos tend to leave my hair dry and brittle.  But I was pleasantly surprised with the performance of this product!  The Intense Moisturizing Shampoo was creamy and lathered pretty well.  Though there weren't many suds produced, I felt like I received a thorough cleansing.  My hair felt so clean afterwards and was not drying at all. And the light floral scent of the shampoo made my hair smell so fabulous!

Unfortunately, I didn't have the same luck with the Lightweight Shampoo.  Though it provided the same fresh scent and nice rich lather, my hair felt a bit dry and wiry after using it.  Perhaps I should have waited longer than two weeks in between shampoos, as I usually co-wash each week and only clarify once monthly.

My favorite product in the bunch was the Moisturizing Conditioner.  After shampooing, I used this product to condition under a plastic cap while showering. And would you believe that within minutes of applying the Moisturizing Conditioner, I could feel my hair getting softer--especially my 12 week post relaxer new growth!  After rinsing away the conditioner, my hair was unbelievably soft.  I could even run my fingers through my wet hair with ease.  Detangling my tresses were a breeze after using the Moisturizing Conditioner. And of course, my hair smelled divine :-)

The Oil Creme Moisturizer was "the icing on the cake" of the products in the Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed Line.  After shampooing and conditioning, I applied the Oil Creme Moisturizer down the length of my hair in sections followed by a small bit of grapeseed oil to seal in the product. While the product did an adequate job of moisturizing my hair without weighing it down, I liked the results better when I used Oil Creme Moisturizer on my wet hair opposed to dry hair. 

After cleansing, conditioning, and moisturizing my hair with Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed products, I was able to put it in my daily protective style, a soft sleek bun, with ease!
