Pantene Truly Relaxed Hair Review

Good morning lovelies, I’m stocked to tell you about a new hair care line I have recently been using and loving. Have you tried the Pantene Truly Relaxed products?  Don’t let the name fool you, although this line seems to be geared toward African American and Latina women, or those with relaxed hair, it is much more universal. Being that I try to limit heat styling on my hair I like to stretch my washes as long as possible, a lot easier to do in the winter when its not so hot. I couldn’t belive I was able to stretch my last wash over 5 days and my hair still looked great. Usually if I stretch it past 3 days I’m hiding it in a ponytail or a bun. The Pantene Truly Relaxed line consists of four products, let’s break them down one by one and I will give you my thoughts on each. 

Intense Moisture Shampoo: Avg. retail price $6.99 
I found this cleanser to be very gentle, it left my hair clean without feeling stripped.

Lightweight Shampoo: Avg. retail price $4.99
Although I likes both shampoos I slightly preferred the way my hair felt after using this one. It gently cleansed my hair and left it feeling soft and moisturized without being weighed down. 


Moisture Conditioner: Avg. retail price $6.99
I cannot sing the praises of this conditioner enough, love love love. I have shoulder length but very thick hair. I often use a ton of conditioner, the quarter size amount most product directions tell you to use is normally not nearly enough for this mane, more like a quarter bottle is what I would use to condition and de-tangle.  But honey let me tell you, although I still used more than a quarter of this conditioner I didn’t need to use a whole lot more than that, it was not heavy or greasy. De-tangling what’s that? My wide tooth comb glided through my hair with ease.  This conditioner is a definite winner. 

Oil Cream Moisturizer: Avg. retail price $7.99
Typically I stay away from cream moisturizers when wearing my hair straight. it can be hard to find one that gives the moisture I need without being heavy. I was pleasantly surprised that this one left my hair manageable, shiny but did not weigh it down. 


Final thoughts

Dislikes: There was nothing I disliked about the set, although I preferred the lightweight shampoo over the intense moisture shampoo I continued to use both. I used the lightweight shampoo more often and will probably leave the moisture shampoo to one or twice a month. My hair is in overall good condition now but the winter does dry it out and I anticipate adding some more color so over time I may use the moisture conditioner more often. There was one thing I felt the set was lacking and that was a serum. I’m a big fan of finishing oils or serums so I was disappointed that this set did not have one. 

Likes: I was very pleased with how soft, manageable and silky my hair was. I like my hair to have movement so products that won’t weigh it down are important, but with the harsh cold winter air retaining moisture is also key. Finding a product that can balance both can be difficult, so I was happy that Pantene delivered. 
  • This set controlled frizz very well;
  • Nice light flowery fragrance 
  • Locked in moisture 
  • Contains nourishing jojoba and coconut oil;
  • After a few uses I noticed less shedding and breakage was almost non-existent;
  • Packaging allows me to use every drop of product, yes I’m one of those people that will cut a bottle open to get that last bit of product out. 
My hair remained shiny, soft and manageable between washing’s and I did not need to add any additional product or styling aids to it. The Truly Relaxed Set is Beyond Beauty Lounge approved. For more on the Truly Relaxed line visit http://www.pantene.com
