Pantene Pro-V: Highlights from our 9 weeks.


Our one-week project extension is now up, meaning the end of our Pantene Pro-V project has finally arrived.

Over the last 9 weeks we’ve been astounded by the number of conversation reports, research sheets and photos that we have received, and have been amazed at the 5,000+ comments on our project blog! So, our final blogpost takes a look back at the highlights of our nine-week project:

We have:

Received… expert answers to our questions. Our contact at Pantene, Jo, was more than happy to answer any of our product-related or hair-care questions.

Posted… loads of online reviews. Whether on the Tried & Tested page on, at any one of the many product review platforms, or even your personal blogs, the reviews are there for all to see!

Shared… our personal hair-care tips. Not forgetting the tips from our project handbook, we also shared a whole load of tips on our blog too to help keep our hair as healthy and as beautiful as possible.

Amazed… our contact at Pantene. Not just Jo but the whole Pantene team was thrilled to be a part of our project and to see and read all of the fantastic feedback that came in over the 9 weeks. On their behalf, thank you for the hard work!

And last but not least… I’d like to say a massive thank you to everybody on the project team and everybody who contributed to making this project such a success, regardless of whether you were able to demonstrate the new range to masses of people or simply joined in with the discussion on our blog here. It’s been great fun, and I am already looking forward to our next project together.

Pantene Pro-V: a hot topic of holiday conversation.


Now that we're back from our holiday breaks, it's a great time to report all the conversations we've had with friends and family about the new Pantene Pro-V collection.

The stress is finally over! Every gift we bought has been unwrapped, every meal we've made has been eaten. 2012 is here, and we're relieved to finally have a moment to ourselves.

Still, we've got to admit, the holidays were a great time for conversation. Whether around the Christmas tree or the dinner table, we all certainly shared recipes, tips and advice... and whether unintentionally or on purpose, one of those topics of conversation might have been about the new Pantene Pro-V collection.

Savvy Circle member giraffe1 made use of Christmas tradition to spread the word about the Pantene Pro-V collection.

"I decided to put a sample set, voucher and brochure in everyone's gift bags-friends and family, they were all very happy and thought it was a unique thing to do. My mum especially has gone on and brought the products after finding the products really thickened her hair and gave her hair a new lease on life!" Savvy Circle member giraffe1

You may not have had time during the hustle and bustle of it all to write a conversation report, but it's by no means too late to tell us what your family and friends said when you told them about the new Pantene Pro-V collection. Remember, it's important that we collect all the opinions together before it's too late - so do get those conversation reports in!

@all - Who did you tell about the new Pantene Pro-V collection this holiday season, and how did they react?

Your Pantene Pro-V questions answered.


Over the past eight weeks on our Pantene Pro-V project we've been receiving a lot of questions about the new hair care range from Pantene.

So, instead of keeping the answers secret and simply answering them via email, what better than to publish two of the most common questions and answer them on our blog?

"I have been advised to avoid using Pantene with coloured hair as it strips the colour and in fact absorbs the hair dye so when coming to wash the hair, the dye is removed leaving your hair with less defined colour. Is this true?"

The specific Pantene Colour Range is designed to help keep the colour in the hair. When using these products including the weekly Colour Seal Concentrate the colour fading is protected and the hair left shiny and healthy looking. No Product in the Pantene Pro-V collection will strip or remove the colour of your hair and are safe for colour-treated, permed hair.

If the colour of your hair looks dull and unhealthy it could be as a result of other factors such as:

  • Infrequent Conditioning
  • Sun exposure
  • Chemically treated water in swimming pools
  • Overuse of styling products

"My hairdresser/friend told me never to use Pantene as it makes your hair more susceptible to breakages and causes build up overtime. Is this true?"

Pantene is designed to be used regularly. Like other conditioning products it provides protection to the hair which helps to prevent damage and breakage and leaves the hair healthy looking and shiny. Our silicones found in the Pantene Pro-V range are lightweight and do not cause build up over time. As with all cosmetic ingredients they are safe and non-toxic and wash off easily at the next shampoo. You can use as often as desired.

@all: Feel free to continue sending your questions in! What do you think of the two here?

Our Pantene project will be extended by a week.

We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the project team’s response to our Savvy Circle project for Pantene. Thanks for your fantastic work so far!

Your feedback has been passed on to Pantene on a weekly basis and the team there is delighted with all of the conversation reports, blog comments, market research sheets and photos that have been sent in.

As a result it has been decided to extend our eight week project by a further week, meaning we now have until 20 January to keep sending in feedback and spreading the word so that we can continue delighting the Pantene team in our joint Savvy Circle project!

Keep your conversation reports coming in, and remember to check the blog on a daily basis to join in with the various topics we’ll be discussing.

Online reviews for Pantene Pro-V.


It’s been a good few weeks since our project for the new Pantene Pro-V collection started, and by now we’re all no doubt in a great position to be able to help others who are considering buying the new Pantene Pro-V range.

Not only are we able to share our experiences on the project, but we can also provide valuable feedback to help influence other people’s opinions on the product before they make a purchase.

One of the best ways to tell others of your experience – including people who are yet to visit the Savvy Circle -is by visiting Tried & Tested**, the product review section on supersavvyme. On Tried & Tested you can not only read what other people think of the new Pantene Pro-V collection, but write your own report too.

Remember, it’s not just potential Pantene Pro-V purchasers who love to see your reviews online – the brand too is interested in seeing what you like about their product, and how you feel it could be improved.

Along with other product evaluation platforms such as Amazon and Ciao, you can also write reviews on, as Savvy Circle member loopylou33 did below:

Reading online reviews is a great source of finding out other people’s product evaluations, especially from people who have been able to experience the product over a number of weeks and have become real Pantene experts, such as ourselves.

As we’re still growing on the Savvy Circle, you have a great chance to let other people know about your experiences and to give them your honest opinion after testing the new range of hair care products over a number of weeks.
