Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural Hair Product Review

Pantene


Everyone’s hair is different. Mine, in particular, is especially unique – complete with mood swings and a multiple personality. After a year of rocking this natural thang (I named her Juicy), I’ve learned that she needs special products to make her feel free.

Enter Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural.

Pantene Truly Natural Product Review

Like most curly girls, my natural hair is naturally dry with a tight curl pattern. The countless zig zags make it difficult for my scalp’s natural sebum to moisturize my hair. Hence, the tangling and dryness. Pantene’s Pro-V formula contains moisturizing agents like coconut oil and jojoba seed oil to keep curlies hydrated and shiny.

Even though Juicy needs a TON of moisture to act right, she still likes to be fluffy and light. Keeping that fluff in check with DC humidity is a constant challenge. When Pantene asked me to try out their Truly Natural line, I jumped at the opp to launch my natural war with the heat.

Battle begins with a wash.

The line contains 2 conditioning products: A co-wash and a deep conditioner. I mixed the co-wash with coconut oil and used it to pre-poo the night before. Once I got in the shower the next day, I rinsed out my potion, applied the deep conditioner and put my cap on. Five minutes later, magic baby! My knots literally melted away as I finger detangled my hair with the product in it.

Fresh out the shower, I applied the Defining Curls Custard. While it had amazing hold, my hair felt a bit hard and dry after a few hours.  The next time I put it on Juicy, some leave-in conditioner may be required underneath to smooth her mood over a bit. I’ll also let you naturalistas know that the Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural line does have silicones in it, so you’ll have to cleanse with a sulfate shampoo, like the Truly Natural Clarifying Shampoo, to thoroughly clean your hair.

My love out of the bunch? The deep conditioner. The ridiculous slip is priceless, but if I had to put a $ sign on it, it’d only be $4.99.

What do you think of my fro? I feel #TrulyMe!

    Hi!
    I noticed your hair on curlynikki.com. I’d like to say that your hair is gorgeous really.
    But, what came to my attention was your coils/curls. I have those from curls in the back to straight zig zag puffy in the front. Was wondering if you knew your hair type and what products do you use to keep them at bay. It’s been a rough journey for me no doubt. Became a product junky lol yet I still have not found THE product/line that works for me. 2 yrs now!

      Hi Quilla!

      Thanks for reading and thanks for the compliment! It took me forever to find the right products. I think I’m finally there now. I have a combination of 4a and 4b hair with both coarse and fine textures throughout. I have found Curl Junkie products to work especially well for my hair. I recently reviewed two of my favs. I hope this is helpful: http://thepsychologyofstyle.com/natural-hair-product-review-curl-junkie/
