Hair Miracle without the Ickyness

on December 14, 2015

Hi loves! It’s been a long while since my last product review. And I so missed trying out new stuff. I was busy about my Master’s degree that I wasn’t able to look anywhere else. Now, its’ our term break, so I’ll surely fill your inboxes with reviews about the latest products from the Philippines.

Tonight, I’m writing about Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. It’s an intensely conditioning hair care product launched by Procter and Gamble. Here’s my bit by bit usage test results:

  1. Packaging – the product comes in a 180 ml gold tube, making it stand out in the shelves. A premium image is being projected here, since the product has a very appealing packaging, as can be seen below.

2. Fragrance – When smelled from the bottle, the fragrance is overwhelming But when applied to the hair, the fragrance stays all day, or even 2 days in my case. Fragrance retention may depend on your hair’s chemistry.

3. Application – the product contents is a translucent white cream that is not too thick or creamy. When applied to the hair, it gives a very smooth and soft feel without being too heavy. It leaves behind a volumized hair that smells good, stays soft and shiny all day.

4. Ingredients

Water, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Silk Extract, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, CI19140, CI17200, CI42090

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS. Product contains five hair conditioning actives, listed below

(1) Bis-Aminopropyl DImethicone

(2) Behentrimonium Methosulfate

(3) Panthenol

(4) Panthenyl Ethyl Ether

(5) Silk extract

PRESERVATIVES are Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone. The latter is classified as a sensitizer and is currently being banned for use for leave on products. As for this product, since this is a wash-off type, it is safe to use.

5. Overall

I would rate this product 9.5/10, since it has packed on lots of conditioners that actually work, without weighing the hair down. Panthenyl Ethyl Ether is a light silicone that has the effects of dimethicone but the lightness of cyclic methicones. Recommended for everyday use.
