After Aqua Light, comes Pantene’s latest offering, the Colour Protect & Smooth range, designed to prolong your dyed hair.
The range includes a Shampoo and Conditioner (Smooth and Volume), plus three treatments including an intensive Colour Seal Concentrate for instant protection and shine. When used as a regime the range is proven to protect colour vibrancy for up to eight weeks.
Dr Frauke Neuser, Pantene Pro-V Scientific Hair Expert. “Coloured hair has a different structure to uncoloured hair and loses its natural water-proofing f-layer. In time it can become more porous which can facilitate faster colour fade. It’s also more vulnerable to damage from everyday combing and styling.”
I’ve been told before that my hair is very porous – infact when I dye it with a darker colour it fades super fast. At the moment I am using another shampoo for sensitive scalp so I passed these two on to my mum who is forever dyeing her hair various shades of brown and dark brown.
Ingredients of Shampoo:
She’s used this a few times now – and like with most Pantene shampoos and conditioners, they suit her well…Mainly because Pantene just effortlessly leaves her hair feeling silky and soft – I do miss that when I am using my organic shampoos – quite quickly and easily this kind of shampoo makes my hair tangle free and shiny. (I find organic shampoos can make your hair feel pretty dry despite being better for my scalp).
Ingredients of conditioner:
My mum washes her hair every day and so far, she’s pleased with this shampoo. The colour looks good, hair is shiny and soft. I would totally recommend anyone who colours their hair use a specialist shampoo because some shampoos, especially harsher or clarifying ones really strip the colour out quickly.
Over a longer period and when used the the treatment products (such as the shine spray and instant seal cream) the hair is supposed to keep its vibrancy for up to six weeks.
(Does anyone remember washing their hair with washing up liquid to get dye out?! Anyone?!).
Anyway Pantene Colour Protect & Smooth shampoo and conditioner are on sale for £2.19 each! I’d recommend this if you have dyed hair, and pretty healthy hair and scalp – this is a cheap and cheerful product!
