Product Review: Pantene Color and Perm Shampoo

Monday, May 06, 2013

     Hello! I need to counteract this laziness every first day of the week that's why I'll greet you a Happy Monday dearies! Whew! My last hair care review was months ago because I settled on using my HG hair care products but when I attended the BDJ Box Beauty Social Event and they included samples of Pantene Color and Perm shampoo to our loot bag that's good for 7 days, I gave this brand an opportunity to shine once again. I have a love-hate relationship with Pantene shampoos and conditioners before. I love this because it doesn't cause major hair fall but I hate that it does cause breakouts on my forehead and some on my neck :( I veered away from this brand and said to myself not to try this again. But when Pantene made this product for specific hair needs- for color treated and permed hair, something inside my head tells me to try again this brand.

     So without thinking twice, I braved myself to try the product for 7 days! It's a risk for me to shampoo my hair for 7 days straight. If you you're a long time reader of this blog, for sure ya'll know that I shampoo my hair 3-4 times a week. And by using this for 7 days, there's no assurance that my hair will get good results. But on my 2nd and 3rd day, I noticed that the effect of this shampoo was the same as what I experienced before but doesn't gave me negative results! Fantastic :) This is the first time that I'll rave about Pantene :) Click Read More to find out what Pantene Color and Perm made my color-treated hair after 7 days...
The Story Behind Pantene Color and Perm
Pantene Pro-V Color and Perm lasting care system is specially formulated with Liquid Crystal Technology that helps hair to repair chemically damaged hair. It also protects colored and permed hair from further damage, so hair color stays healthier for up to 6 weeks. Scientific research shows that hair gets damaged every time you subject it to coloring, perming, and extreme heat. This is because the hair's natural protective layer is ripped-off to alter your hair's fundamental structure from black to brown, straight to permed, wavy to straight. While your hair may look glamorous in pictures, it may be weakened and unhealthy from within. This damage affects the fundamental structure of hair, depleting hair's natural healthy beauty, thus hair is unable to maintain the desired end look.
Pantene Color and Perm Lasting Care Shampoo's LIQUID CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY has been proven to effectively  protect hair from damage. Now you can enjoy healthy, shiny, colored hair

Pantene Color and Perm Shampoo
Thank you Cosmopolitan Magazine for the feature

What I like:
  • I love the packaging! It's very sleek and neat looking.
  • The consistency is not thick nor runny.
  • Produces a rich lather and I only need a little amount to shampoo my hair.
  • My hair doesn't feel stiff after shampooing.
  • This shampoo made the color of my hair more vibrant and shiny.
  • After 2 weeks, the color of my hair hasn't faded. 
  • Since color treated hair is prone to dryness and breakage, I experienced a very little hair fall. Less than 5 strands and that's very promising for someone like me who had a major hair fall history.
What I don't like:

  • The scent- not long lasting.

Will I repurchase? Yes! This is my favorite and HG Shampoo as of the moment.

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. I love this shampoo and even recommended it to my relatives and friends. This is the first time that my hair has agreed with local brand. If you remember my hair care posts, I presume you know that my hair always agree with Korean or other international brands but this time Pantene made a big difference. Just follow the instructions on how to use the product. I had a bad experience before from not following instructions and made my hair very coarse and dry. If you want to really take good care of your hair, if the product says shampoo, lather then rinse- do it! Don't let the product sink into you hair and scalp for more than 2 minutes unless otherwise stated or you'll end up stripping the shine of your locks. 
     I highly recommend this product! Have you tried Pantene Color and Perm shampoo? Share us your experience!

Good Times!~


  1. i also tried the 7 days worth of sampled from the BDj event and after i finished it, i immediately bought the full sized shampoo + conditioner. i must say, it's very awesome. and it's the first time that i've used pantene ever. my hair color is more intense than ever, plus the ends don't dry that easily. i always get that whenever i color my hair, but when i used this, that is not the case.

    totally recommended! :)

    thanks for this review.
