I recently got a sample of Pantene's "Repair and Protect" in the mail. I figured I would give it a shot because I love trying new products. I know some who love Pantene too.
It did give my hair a shine, which is nice. My hair is naturally oily to begin with, so within a day of using this product, my hair is already flat, and blah.
This was the after picture after I dried my hair and straightened it. A full bottle of each product retail around $4, which is reasonable.
Would I purchase this? Probably not. My hair felt crunchy/dry after I dried it not soft like I'm used to, and I really don't like the fragrance of their products.
