The panel

Beauty Crew sent Pantene Pro-V Nutrient Blends Sulphate-free ‘Fortifying Damager Repair’ with Castor Oil Shampoo and Pantene Pro-V Pantene Nutrient Blends Sulphate-free ‘Fortifying Damage Repair’ with Castor Oil Conditioner to a panel of women aged 24 to 49 who were looking for products to strengthen their strands.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Pantene Pro-V Nutrient Blends Sulphate-free ‘Fortifying Damager Repair’ with Castor Oil Shampoo and Pantene Pro-V Pantene Nutrient Blends Sulphate-free ‘Fortifying Damage Repair’ with Castor Oil Conditioner.

The way they repaired damaged strands: Reviewers noticed a distinct change in the overall health of their hair after integrating the shampoo and conditioner into their routine. Many said their hair had been damaged from heat styling and overprocessing but after using the castor oil-infused range, their hair felt restored to its former glory. 

The way they smoothed frizz: The castor and argan oil-infused formula helped to nourish and subsequently soothe strands effortlessly, leaving the members’ hair frizz and flyaway-free.

The way they imparted softness and shine: The other benefit of using an oil-infused formula? An improvement in how soft and shiny their hair was compared to prior to using the shampoo and conditioner. 

The verdict

“I’ve heard that castor oil is great for your hair and for hair regrowth in particular. First thing that hit me was the smell. It was great. I Honestly can't even explain it but I really loved it. It was light and fresh and didn’t feel overpowering… But it never felt too slick on my hair. I’ve used it a number of times now and my hair always looks healthy and shiny after. I also feel like it has made my hair feel softer. I would definitely recommend this duo.”

“I have dry, coarse and damaged hair. So I was super excited to try this castor oil shampoo as I’ve heard castor oil is great for hair. It was exactly this! The shampoo left my hair feeling well nourished, soft and smelling amazing for days afterwards. I appreciate that the shampoo is paraben and sulphate free as it’s something I look for in my hair products now. I liked the design and bright print of the bottle; which I also thought was a great size too – not too big and not too small – can be used for travel. Overall, I would recommend this shampoo if you have dry and/or damaged hair. The castor oil is great, and my hair was frizz free after using this.”

“[This] is the perfect product to leave you hair feeling refreshed, light and silky smooth. I’ve always been a regular Pantene user because it’s not expensive and works well with my hair but this Castor Oil Conditioner is a definite upgrade to the products I normally use. It left my hair feeling so smooth and silky… [It] took away all the frizz that my hair had which is rare for hair products I use as I have super long and thick hair AND my hair still looked fresh and healthy, day 2 after having washed my hair (also rare because my hair will get oily and dry by this point in time).”

“This product works wonders on my hair! Bleaching my hair has made it super dry and frizzy and I normally find that even after washing my hair with shampoo and conditioner, it still dries really frizzy and doesn't have the shine that I want it to. This conditioner is amazing at fixing those problems for me. I love that I don't have to use a lot as a little bit goes a long way and the smell is divine. It doesn't weigh down my hair and make it feel oily. Instead it gives my hair an amazing shine and improves the texture so much! The Pro-V and castor oil make my hair feel so healthy and nourished. I will definitely be purchasing this product again!”
