Pantene has reformulated their Pro-V Silky Smooth Care Shampoo & Conditioner and claim that this is their #BestEver version. Is that claim justified? Read on to know my thoughts.

What Do I Think Of Them?
I think by now all of you who read the blog regularly know that I have dry hair specially dry ends. To protect my hair against dryness, I rarely use heat or styling products like gels, mousses etc on my hair and prefer to just let it be. My idea of a good shampoo is one that cleans properly and keeps my hair soft, manageable, shiny and frizz-free. The new Pantene Pro-V Silky Smooth Care range actually does all of that.
The packaging is standard and nothing extra-ordinary. The shampoo does not lather much but does a good job in cleaning the scalp and hair strands without stripping the natural oil. I’ve used the shampoo minus the conditioner as well and really liked the effect. After rinsing off, there were no knots, tangles or hair fall. No irritation or pain while brushing the hair!
The conditioner is slightly thicker than the shampoo and when used together, they really make the hair smooth and manageable. Both products have sulfates as ingredients along with other chemicals so that might be an issue for those who want to go chemical-free. If you don’t have an issue and want to try something for dry, damaged, frizzy hair, you can check out the new and very affordable Pantene Pro-V Silky Smooth Care Shampoo and Conditioner. And yes, they are better than their earlier version!
