Editor Tested: Pantene Customized Solutions


    Hair: Can’t live with it. Can’t live without it.

    I have a love/hate relationship with my mop. It’s kinda thick, wavy and has some definite frizz going on. I dream of a sleek ‘do and am very envious of my colleagues sporting perfect graduated bobs.

    During my last visit to Antonio, my rock-star hairdresser, I decided to take a hair-risk and go for a structured style – yes, I went for the graduated bob. At the end of my salon appointment my hair was magnificent, absolute perfection. The following day, it was looking like a bit of a fluffy mess. Again.

    The hair gods must have been watching over me (and probably chuckling) because an email from GLAM Media pinged into my email box asking if I’d like to try one of Pantene’s new collections. Pantene Customized Solutions gives us gals the ability to choose products that fit both our hair type and our desired end-look. We now have options that allow us to still have fabulous volume at the end of the workday and smoothness that goes on and on.

    Pantene Customized Solutions is organized into four categories: Fine, Medium-Thick, Curly, and Color-Treated hair. The new collections include:

    • Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions in three versions: Flat to Volume, Dry to Moisturized, Fragile to Strong

    • Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions in four versions: Frizzy to Smooth, Breakage to Strength, Dry to Moisturized

    • Pantene Pro-V Curly Hair Series in two versions: Curls to Straight, Dry to Moisturized

    • Pantene Pro-V Color Hair Solutions in six versions: Color Preserve Shine, Volume, Smooth, Blonde Expressions, Highlighting Expressions, Brunette Expressions

    I tested (and am actually still using) Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Frizzy to Smooth shampoo and conditioner, and Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Straighten and Smooth styling crème. These three products are formulated to help lock out humidity, defending hair against frizz. The result is a smooth, sleek look that lasts all day. Yippee!

    I found that after repeated use of my Pantene products and my amazing blow-dryer, I was receiving multiple compliments from friends on my sleek, graduated bob! And even when I decided not to blow-dry my locks, those waves were, and are, super-shiny and frizz-free!

    Think you might be interested in trying a new hair regime? I recommend that you visit ( for all you Canucks!) and let the smart Pantene tool recommend the perfect products for creating your dream ‘do.

    Have you tried Pantene Customized Solutions? What did you think?
