Product Review/ Pantene Experts AgeDefy Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque and Treatment

Recently I was lucky enough to get selected to give my thoughts and opinions on the new Pantene Experts AgeDefy collection. As you know I love being able to try new things before buying them and I have to say when I first heard about this I was a little skeptical about the claims and doubted that it would work on my hair.
I have to admit that I have been blessed with fantastic hair and at times it can be a curse. Its very thick but very healthy considering all that I have done to my hair in the past (numerous perms) and now numerous dying since then. It honestly looks like it did in the past with the exception of a little more frizz.
As we age we are told to take care of our skin but how many of us take the time to care for our hair? Hmm not many right? Well enter Pantene and the AgeDefy package.
The kit I got to try for two weeks included:
  • Shampoo: A daily shampoo fighting the 7 signs of aging hair; gentle enough for colour-treated hair too.
  • Conditioner: A daily conditioner fighting the 7 signs of aging hair; gentle enough for colour-treated hair too.
  • Advanced Thickening Treatment: Creates volume by thickening existing hair fibers and strengthens hair over time.
  • Rejuvenating Hydration Masque: Restores hydration levels to provide resilience against breakage
  • Do you know what the seven signs of aging in hair are? Well if not here they are:

  • Breakage
  • Split Ends
  • Frizz
  • Unruly Grays
  • Lackluster Color
  • Thin look
  • Dryness
  • I currently was experiencing frizz, some unruly gray hair (yes I do have gray hair but you can’t tell under all the color I have there) and lack luster color. So I figured out why no try this new line to see if it can help.

    Within the first two weeks of using the new line I knew right away I had found my go to shampoo and conditioner. I liked the smell of everything as it was a nice smell and not heavy in scent.

    Another thing I loved about this line was that its not heavy on my hair and it didn’t weigh it down at all. Its actually very soft and light.

    I was unsure of the masque and at first thought it was drying my hair out but once I used it a few times it worked fantastic. I spaced it out to using it every three days and realized you didn’t need a whole lot in your hair. It was nice being able to spend a few extra minutes in the shower on those days.

    Finally the last item that I loved and probably will repurchase when I am done it is the treatment. Its sort of like a gel consistency in the bottle but when you put it close to your scalp its almost like a thick water and I found it very cooling on the hair. When it was massaged into the scalp it was nice and easy and no stickiness to the scalp or hair. I am hoping to find this in the US for a little cheaper then here in Canada.

    I think the only down side to this is honestly the price point of the items. The shampoo and conditioner I have seen at walmart for under $10 Canadian. The masque I believe is under $14 and the treatment is under $20. You will probably go through the shampoo and conditioner faster then you would for the treatment in my opinion.

    I have noticed a difference in my hair throughout the day and getting up the next day. I will definitely be purchase this again and in fact I have already bought the shampoo and conditioner.

    Thanks once again to Divine for selecting me to be a part of the testing. Love it
