If your hair tends to become oily and dirty rapidly and you want it clean and visibly healthy Pantene Pro-V Purifying Shampoo is perfect for you. His special formulation cleanses hair from root to tip, removing oil and build-up styling products residues.
What I liked:

- the scent
- the packaging
What I didn’t like:
- can be drying if used too often
I have very oily hair. I wash it and the next day it looks so greasy and dirty, it’s disgusting. Lately, my hair also felt a bit weighted down because of styling products residues. My hair needed a good cleanse and this shampoo promises just that, so I was very curious to try it and see how well it works.
The shampoo is clear and its consistency is quite thick. You only need a small amount of product, which rapidly produces a lot of lather. I’ve never seen such a huge amount of lather piled up on my head! It is very easy to rinse off, although that takes slightly longer to do than it does with other shampoos because of the excess lather. But once the shampoo is rinsed away, hair feels really clean, lighter and smoother. It effectively removes all oil and build-up styling products residues! But what I love the most is that it makes my hair stay clean for 2/3 days before it needs to be washed again and that is a lot, if you have oily hair.
However, being a clarifying shampoo, it contains higher concentrations of cleansing ingredients that can strip away hair’s natural moisture. This product contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which cleanses very well and produces a lot of foam fast, but can also dry your hair. This shampoo is therefore NOT gentle enough for everyday use. I use this about once a week, but if you have dry or normal hair, then once every couple of weeks would probably work better for you. For the same reason, you also need to use a conditioner after the shampoo.
The product has a subtle and lovely scent that lasts all day. The container is sleek and clear, which I love as you can see how much product is still left in the packaging after every use.
Overall, I really love this shampoo. It has a lovely smell, lathers up well and is very effective at cleansing and removing dirt, oil and styling products residue from my hair, leaving it clean for a few days. Be careful not to use it often though and always apply conditioner afterwards, or you’ll risk drying out your hair.
