The product

One of the worst parts of dry and damaged hair? All the frizz, tangles and knots.

The trick to combatting these effects is finding haircare that’s nourishing, hydrating and smoothing. 

Pantene Pro-V Instant Smooth Detangling Mist promises all this and more, with a nutrient-enriched, budget-friendly formula that you can pick up at the supermarket. Spritz it into wet strands to easily detangle, separate knots, and smooth frizz. And once it’s dry? You’ll be the proud owner of softer, smoother and shinier strands. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say when they tried this smoothing and detangling hair mist. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Pantene Pro-V Instant Smooth Detangling Mist to a panel of women aged 18 and older with dry and damaged hair.  

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Pantene Pro-V Instant Smooth Detangling Mist.

It made detangling their hair so much easier: The number one takeaway from this trial? The hair mist makes detangling a breeze. Reviewers said all they needed was a few spritzes through their strands to get their combs and brushes to smoothly pass through their tangles and knots. 

It helped to hydrate and nourish hair: The nutrient-enriched formula seemed to have a positive effect on reviewers' hair, with many noting that their hair appeared more hydrated and nourished. 

It smoothed frizz and defined curls: Reviewers also really liked the way the mist helped to easily minimise any frizz they were experiencing. It left eaving their hair smooth and their curls more defined. 

The verdict

“I tried this product alongside the Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner and I did try it on my hair numerous times and found it to make brushing so much easier! To be honest I used this product a lot on my daughters curly dry frizzy hair and found it to be hydrating and curl defining. It was a game changer in getting ready for school as she no longer dreaded the hairbrush and knots. I will probably buy this product over the likes of the Palmolive one as we enjoyed using the shampoo and conditioner and found them to be really good products so we would stick with the same brand and products that complement each other. The Pantene range is suitable for the whole family and I love that it is available in supermarkets for ease of purchase.”

“I used the Pantene Pro-V Instant Smooth Detangling Mist after shampooing with the Pro-V10 Repair and Protect Shampoo and the 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. I have shoulder-length straight hair that can get tangled up after washing. After I towel dried my hair, I sprayed a few pumps throughout my hair and brushed through with a wide-tooth comb. The comb easily glided through my hair with ease and I love using the mist to provide added conditioning and moisturising benefits to my dry hair. I think it also benefits the longer term hair health as someone who regularly uses heat styling tools.”

“I've tried a number of hair repair products for my dry damaged and frizzy bleached hair over the last few years. Even the more expensive Olaplex range. What a massive waste of my time and money. They work for a little while but then for some reason they just stop working! This Pantene Pro-V Instant Smooth Detangling Mist is wonderful. It works time and time again. It leaves my hair smooth and less frizzy after a wash. Very easy to apply (don't need much) and it actually smells really nice. The price point is fantastic as well. Jump on this before the word gets out!!!! It truly is a miracle.”
