Review: Pantene Total Damage Care 10 Shampoo and Conditioner

When I was younger, I go to the pool a lot, and even though I use swimming caps, there was always the danger that the chlorine that they use to treat the pool will damage my hair. So I have always been on the look out for shampoos to treat my hair to ensure that it doesn't get affected by the chemicals in the pool. I have seen too many times the side effects of the pool chemicals on the other swimmers.

So when I got the opportunity to review Pantene's newest range with the Keratin Damage Blocker Technology, I knew I had to try it to see if it could live up to its claim of giving me beautiful, radiant, and shiny hair.

Amongst other factors, heat and humidity are the most common factors attributed to dull and lifeless hair. However, what is not commonly known is that minerals naturally present in water can have a detrimental effect on the protein structure of hair, or keratin, becoming the invisible enemy of healthy-looking hair!I of all people know how true this problem is. On top of that, Pantene Hair Research Institute (PHRI) experts discovered that the build-up of excessive oxidative minerals in hair can have damaging effects on hair health. Oxidative minerals amplify the production of free radicals, which in turn leads to the fracture and erosion of proteins, weakening hair over time.

So they have come up with a solution, which is Pantene’s Keratin Damage Blocker (KDB) Technology, reformulated into the Pantene Pro-V haircare range of shampoos. This DB Technology actively targets, captures and helps to neutralize excessive oxidative minerals in hair. Instead of waiting for free radicals to be produced before attacking them, Damage Blockers actually help prevent their formation by reducing excessive levels of minerals in hair. Pantene is the first global brand designed to prevent protein erosion by minimising mineral accumulation in hair.

With continued use, mineral-induced oxidative stress declines, hair’s proteins are better preserved, and hair condition can improve over time, ultimately giving you beautiful, radiant and shiny hair. Hair health is improved with every wash with Pantene Pro-V shampoos, now with Keratin Damage Blocker Technology and invisible enemies remain invisible!

Conditioner ingredient list

I have experienced the ten signs of damaged hair, which is tangled, dull, brittle, split ends, hairfall due to breakage, dry, rough, weak, frizzy, and unmanageable hair. I used to think that all this happened mostly due to me having long hair, but over the course of time, I have realised that this is due to my hair's condition, and that it is damaged. So, I took this as a personal challenge to myself to see if this product could give my hair the chance to shine.

After one month of using the Pantene Total Damage Care 10 Shampoo and Conditioner, my hair is softer, easier to manage, and there is less hairfall. I could now comb my hair easily without experiencing any knots in my hair (which is a major plus point for me), and it doesn't feel dry after every wash.

Pantene Pro-V has definitely delivered what they have set out to do, and I feel that this is something that every girl with problem hair should look into. At only RM9.90 for a bottle, I feel that this is a very affordable price to pay for a product that fully delivers on its promise. 

The reformulated Pantene Pro-V shampoo range with Keratin Damage Blocker technology includes Color & Perm Lasting Care, Daily Moisture Repair, Hair Fall Control, and Total Damage Care. It is priced from RM9.90 (170ml) and is available at all leading retailers nationwide.

Til the next time, stay beautiful!
