Pantene Pro-V

Pantene Pro-V

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.

Your Savvy Circle member joni

I've been so involved in this trial that I've even hovered around the shampoo section of my local Tesco, to see if anyone buys Pantene! Does that make me sad...? :-) I don't feel sad - it's been a great experience, and it's given my friends a chance to join in too. It's been like a party, without the alcohol (ah - that's a different story...) xxx

riyasahni77 • 16/01/2012 - 22:19

Great if it has been exteNDED AS i TOO like giving my opinions on the product which is good and reading others views as well

chile • 16/01/2012 - 22:50

Following the advice for 'typing' your hair, I requested products for coloured hair. even though I've greasy, fine-to-normal and sparse hair. The shampoo is definitely better than my previous one - though it does leave my hair quite matted. However, I prefer the Pantene Aqua Light which I've been a fan of for some time as it doen't leave my hair too lank and greasy after a day. The masque is much too heavy for me, but my sister who has really dry hair really loves it. So I think, I'll have to mix and match products from both the fine and coloured hair ranges! The bottles are almost impossible to open if you're in the shower and your hands are wet [I've broken 2 nails] - please change them to press-openers rather than push-open lids. One quick sweep of the straighteners is enough to leave my hair styled now - which is has also helped the condition of my hair - fantastic! I did get dandruff a couple of times - but that may have been due to incomplete rinsing - so no more quick hair washes! Only 2 people who I gave samples to had negative comments - most liked the new range and some have used their coupons to buy.

batherton • 17/01/2012 - 03:40

just washed my hair with Pantene Pro-shampoo,conditioner for thick hair very pleased with the it.Will defernitely will be buying this left my hair feeling really nice

chilly • 17/01/2012 - 06:42

2068313577830241844 • 17/01/2012 - 07:23

this is my third week using the products. I dont wash my hair daily but every other day and my hair is looking great at the moment

people have been asking me what do i use

so it leads me in to my patter on pantene have given out the samples and most have used the money off coupons so far


Helsim24 • 17/01/2012 - 07:34

I've loved doing it, its such a good way to have an excuse for a girlie gossip and theres alot of people have commented on my hair. It feels so soft and looks so shiny!

Kaz2605 • 17/01/2012 - 07:47

This has been a great project - I have the healthiest looking hair I have had in years which makes me feel so much better about myself and my firends have loved getting the samples and money off coupons.

cjanoam • 17/01/2012 - 08:27

thanks so much for making me a part of this project. this is the first time i have participated in a project like this and i've had a great time!!! i love the conditioner but your 2-minute intensive nourishing treatment was a hit with almost all my friends (who got the samples). even my hair, which looked so dry and undernourished, are glowing and looking well looked-after. i am a huge fan of this new range...continue with the great job that you're doing. i am sure this has given a lot of women (testers or otherwise) a boost of self-esteem that comes from great-looking hair. i wish you all the best on your future endeavours. although i have never used pantene-pro-v before this...happy to announce that i am a convert!!! yay!!!!!!!

spygle • 17/01/2012 - 08:30

After using Pantene, I have tried to go back to my usual shampoo, which I used to like as well. There was such a big difference!!! Went back to Pantene right away:) Thanks for a possibility to be a part of this project. I'm happy to discover such a great product:)

donmarbu • 17/01/2012 - 09:19

Still enjoying using my Pantene products.

Considering we're now in the middle of January, with cold weather and constant central heating blasting the daylights out of our hair, mine looks surprising healthy and glossy!

traluvie • 17/01/2012 - 09:19

I love this shampoo and have gone on to buy the bigger bottles as i was so impressed..I will continue to use this product and recommend it to friends

mumof5 • 17/01/2012 - 09:21

I love the new pantene range my hair is shiny and my colour seems brighter the only thing I've found is my hair is more static / flyaway.
I have thick, long, highlighted, wavy hair.

blackkenja • 17/01/2012 - 09:49

I have long, thick hair and sometimes get dandruff, and with the cold weather have been wearing my wolly hat a lot which makes the hair greasier. I find the shampoo for thick hair cleans very well, and the hair doesn't feel dry or been 'striped' like some shampoo can do. The use of conditioner and mask makes the hair even softer!

crashbandicoot • 17/01/2012 - 10:00

Really enjoying using the Pantene products, and also enjoying being part of the research process. I've now handed out all my samples and vouchers, just need to get a few more research sheets back so the extension by a week is most welcome!

alabamajones76 • 17/01/2012 - 10:12

As the weeks have gone on i have become more and more impressed with Pantene. Although i used it in the past it never gave me that WOW factor. Now it is WOWing me all over the town!!! :-)

sexyminx82 • 17/01/2012 - 10:19

Im loving the new Pantene range, and altho i can notice that my hair is needing coloured im still getting compliments :) Will definitely continue to use these products

gertiepinklestein • 17/01/2012 - 10:27

Hi folks- been using the coloured hair products & really impressed. If only it would stop roots showing!

kinderegg • 17/01/2012 - 10:34

Must be the best savvy circle project yet massively impressed with the range and the lovely hair!

kada831 • 17/01/2012 - 11:46

Loving using the products still, found it a bit ttricky getting hold of everyone over the Christmas period so the extended time was really valued.

allthatglitters • 17/01/2012 - 12:25

I have been using the aqua light shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks now and am loving it. I have really fine hair and its great for everyday use, however I will be looking to buy the volume and body shampoo & conditioner to see what difference that makes as it would be nice to have that bit of extra volume for when I am going out.

cecilia31 • 17/01/2012 - 12:26

after christmas holidays was actually nice that u guys understood these and gave us an extra week to get feedback from friends & family, me personally love the products, my coloured hair looks now so much healthy and shinny than ever! :)

CJ65 • 17/01/2012 - 12:44

Thank goodness for the extra week. This is my 1st test project so am learning as I go on. Christmas was a great time to spread the word and hand out samples and vouchers, but I was just so busy I didn't have time to write up any outcomes.
I'm just going to visit my daughter in law to ask how the other mums at playgroup have got on. Updates to follow

sazy • 17/01/2012 - 13:33

my friends and family are coming back with fabulous comments about the sample shampoos/conditioners! havent had any bad feedback, tesco profits must be sky high now as they have all rushed down their with their coupons as they are so impressed! they have all said how clean/fresh their hair feels and smells lovely, big thankyou to pantene as you have made a lot of people happy!!xx

Joni • 17/01/2012 - 15:23

@ Kaz2605: We are pleased you have seen good results and your hair is looking healthier!
@all: Has anyone finished their samples and bought more? We are nearing the end of project and we’ve all had such a great time!

hepsibah • 17/01/2012 - 16:11

Although I haven't yet heard back from some friends and relatives regarding updates on samples and vouchers, my own household is much more harmonious in the hair care department with my husband wondering why is flaky scalp is almost no more (I have since shared with him my own theory on this) and my teenage daughter displaying less angst about her less greasy hair. Myself? I have had to buy another bottle to get a look in.

Lol_1 • 17/01/2012 - 17:24

I have tried both the shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair and the one for fine. I love the one for fine hair it really did leave my hair feeling light and swishable. On the other hand a friend who has thicker coloured hair raved about the coloured range so I guess it's just finding the range that is right for you.

wiveygirl • 17/01/2012 - 17:28

I have heard back from every single one of my friends and family who I have given samples to, and the general concensus is that they LOVE the new Pantene range, and already have purchased their own bottles using their money off vouchers. i do have coloured hair myself but I found the product for my type of hair too heavy, so I tried the one for normal/thick hair and found this suits me brilliantly! I will certainly be buying more of this! Thanks Savvy Circle and Pantene xx

KARI11 • 17/01/2012 - 17:49


JA56MCC • 17/01/2012 - 17:55

Just to let you know Tesco had these reduced to £1 yesterday and with the money off voucher then they are FREE!

G8KPS • 17/01/2012 - 18:11

I work as a cleaner and handed out all my samples to my employers..Happy to report that eveyone now has bottles of pantene in their showers!

Tinkpixie • 17/01/2012 - 18:26

Still loving the products and my friends are converted now too. Just a little grumble ( as someone has already mentioned ) are the lids, I also find them quite difficult to open if you are in the shower. x

claire___ • 17/01/2012 - 18:28

Thanks JAMCC will be taking my mum over to Tesco tomorrow to use her vouchers then,
Im so glad this project has been extended, we had a death in the family just after new year so things have been a bit up in the air and I would have hated tohave missed out on putting in all my conversation reports etc after all the work I had put into it.
Loving all the comments I have had on my hair and will give the aqua conditioner a try now afer reading everyone elses comments x

peewee123 • 17/01/2012 - 18:31

Glad you've extended it for longer. I can definatley see that my hair is feeling more smooth and less dry over time. i am able to manage my hair more easily. Hopefully by continuing to use it, my hair will keep looking better. However, one negative, is that it makes my hair flat, and doesnt give much volume!

boozy • 17/01/2012 - 19:00

I have loved using this product and so have my friends and family. Everyone has commented on how much better their hair feels. I have noticed a huge difference in my hair since using this. I have used a voucher already and bought some so thanks very much for all the samples and vouchers.

TESTING • 17/01/2012 - 19:25

Loved being part of this trial. Good products for different hair types. Great to get samples to give this encourages others to buy using the money off voucher.
Will continue to use the treatments...............great stuff!!!!

Green_day87 • 17/01/2012 - 19:50

I have really enjoyed being part of this project. My hair is left feeling really soft. Over the last week or so though it has been quite dry looking - this could be due to cold weather and heating being on quite a lot though. I have had lots of positive feedback. I've finished the conditioner this week - the only problem I've found is that when there isn't much left in the bottle it is quite hard to get it out. I will continue to use Pantene. Thank you for allowing me to take part.

Lexie123 • 17/01/2012 - 20:36

This last weeek or so I have had to stop usintg the shampoo as it made my skin itchy for some reason. I have packed off the shampoo and conditioner to a delighted mum who will feedback this week hopefully. I still enjoy the treatment and have kept it for myself although it does seem a huge bottle for a one off treat.

Anneg • 17/01/2012 - 20:39

I've really enjoyed trying out the Pantene products and have now received feedback from the rest of the friends I gave samples to which is as follows:

1 Have tried the shampool and conditioner (sachets gave me 2 shampoos) - they made my hair feel very soft but apart from that, I'm not sure if I would specially go and buy it, although it didn't make my hair flyaway which some shampoos do.
2 Found the samples good in that they seemed to give a pleasant softness and smell. The more intensive conditioner did condition well and made my hair shiny and I think I detected an enhanced colour! I did find the samples rather small to properly assess - I usually use far more conditioner on my hair per treatment but maybe that means I use too much!!
3 I have used the pantene products but sorry, with it being Christmas, forgot to get back to you. I was quite impressed with them. They were thick and luxurious to use and they left my hair feeling lovely and soft.
4 Thanks for the shampoo sample which I used over the weekend. I had one for normal to thick hair and I found that the shampoo did make lots of lather which was good, however I found it difficult to wash out the conditioner afterwards as it was quite thick. It did leave my hair smoother after drying but it made my hair feel more greasy sooner!
5 I have to say that I was underwhelmed with the samples, and wouldn’t go out of my way to buy the shampoo or conditioner. I didn’t hate it either, just found them both very average.

Feedback a bit varied but good on the whole I think. I would say that I found the shampoo in particular lovely and creamy and because of that probably used too much when I should have used a lot less! My hair is very fine and, as I used the products for coloured hair, it left my hair a bit flat. Will try the ones for fine hair next. I wasn't that keen on the perfume - would prefer something with a slightly stronger one. Products a bit difficult to open in the shower. Also, can't really be bothered using 3 different products on a regular basis, so will major on the shampoo and conditioner and keep the other for occasions when I have more time. Thank you.

mrscole • 17/01/2012 - 21:18

At first it left my hair feeling great and found that i could go up to 3 days without washing it and it still looked clean and shiny. Now after nearly finishing the bottles i find i am back to washing it every day unless i use the deep conditioning one and then it makes my hair really shiny and clean for a couple of days. I am using the fine hair one. Someone once told me that your hair gets used to a certain shampoo/conditioner and stops been as effective and that you should alternate them is this true?

Crystalwang • 18/01/2012 - 00:49

good product .have to buy another one now.

ernie08 • 18/01/2012 - 02:33

I have recieved mixed reviews back from family and friends who i gave the samples to but i will sart on my own feedback first.
1. I forgot at first i had applied to test this product,so when i recieved a nice big heavy parcel i was chuffed as i dont get many so thank you. Ha ha
2. My main sample was the product for coloured hair which i washed my hair with straight away,i used all 3 products and was pleased with how well,healthy and shiny my hair looked,plus i found my hair easier to style.
3.I went a few days without washing my hair and noticed it started to feel a bit greasy,didnt think to much of it and washed my hair again.A few days later i noticed the same thing.On washing my hair for a third time the first week i decided not to use the intense conditioner,RESULT, i went longer then the first few times and only had to wash my hair because it needed it and not because it was greasy.
4. I continued to use just the shampoo and conditioner and my hair was looking better then it had in ages,then i thought i wud try the intense conditioner one last time,FAIL,again after a few days my hair was greasy again.
5. I have since brought this product and im very happy with it but sadly i havent used all the intense conditioner and sadly wont be putting it on my shopping list.
My friends and familys comments;
All my friends and family bar one said they found the product very good and would be buying the product themselves,One even said it was refreshing to have a good shampoo and conditioner that not only made her hair look healthy and shiny but she could also smell it on her hair still days later.
My mobile hairdresser is now using this product on her clients and is also telling her clients how good it is.
My one friend who didnt agree with this product said she didnt like the smell or how it made her hair feel.
Im confident that least 70 per cent of my friends and family are now buying and using this product.
Keep up the good work.

PrettySwindon • 18/01/2012 - 02:50

I distributed all the products to my colleagues at work in my bank and also to some of them during the weekend party. The project also has gave us topic of discussion and got to know that there are many of us, who are eager to try new products but just that they are reluctant to try new ones as they are too expensive these days to give a shot.

The free samples I got as part of the project helped all of us to understand what product range pantene offers and also the new pantene range of conditioners are awesome. Most of us have already purchased the full size bottles at retail outlets and the discount vouchers provided motivated them.

Good project! Loved it!

mag7373 • 18/01/2012 - 03:21

I recived sample of product for coloured hair - smell was lovely, probably can be a bit strong for some sensitive nose, but is perfect for me.
Rich formula, exact amount of product as i needed - have longer hair,
used and loved, hair look healthy, feels great, and smell great.
I want to buy that shampoo and conditioner for sure,
Is really good to try if you didnt do that yet :-)

Icklepickle • 18/01/2012 - 08:53

Yay!!! I am sooooo pleased as I have so many reports to file etc as my silly internet has been playing up :( Never fear I WILL get them logged!!

ruby-rex • 18/01/2012 - 10:48

So far I have only had one negative which isn't bad going. I'm still loving using Pantene for my fine hair and as I wash my hair every day I find that I use the conditioner every other day and the treatment every week. Comments on my hair have been really great and I'm really pleased that the project has been extended as I've a few more family and friends to chase for their results yet.

hazey3 • 18/01/2012 - 11:11

I have got about three quarters of the way through the shampoo. I will be buying it again. I have found my hair doesn't need washing as often so i'm very pleased i've finally found a decent shampoo that works.

JackieJackson • 18/01/2012 - 11:23

Thats all my feedback in and submitted to the project people. It seems that almost everyone who has tried the product has liked it (apart from hubby). my 17 year old son even like it.
so happy to have been chosen to participate/
Thanks PANTENE for allowing me to take part.

aljack • 18/01/2012 - 12:48

Just to say it has been really interesting for both myself and others comparing the different types of shampoo samples included in the pack. What was interesting is that friends who had the coloured hair samples did not seem so favourable as the others, so although they are all Pantene range there are obviously differences.

ssukisue • 18/01/2012 - 15:14

Spoke to everyone about Pantene this Christmas.

Obviously Santa took samples and voucher back with him, but didn’t know if he had a Tesco close by.

Reindeers wanted a little more advice ie, using on ultra fine hair and would Pantene be ok on the antlers. I felt I was qualified enough to advise.

Said they would forward ‘usage over a period of time report’ by next New Year, I said it was a bit late but would be ok. Hope thats ok with Pantene?

puddlejumper • 18/01/2012 - 19:11

Wow, this Pantene range has really made a difference to my hair. It is really thick and no matter what I have done with it in the past it looks good on the day I wash it but have to put it up for the following days. I've been using Pantene since just before Christmas and I can honestly say my hair has been tamed!!! It's silky soft, stays straight for days (well that's never happened before!!). My daughter who also has highlighted hair has been using it as well and she loves it - just about at the end of the conditioner bottle so it's on the shopping list for the Saturday shop. Will definately buy the range in the future.

Thank you Pantene!!!!

sweeny • 18/01/2012 - 19:44

YAY!!!! my pack has FINALLY arrived!! I can't wait to try out the new shampoo and conditioner + the split end serum. I have passed on sample packs to a few friends already and now am waiting to see results. I will be trying mine today :-)

sissygirl • 18/01/2012 - 20:51

hi i am bernice,& i tried my sample today for coloured hair.& to be honest i was not expecting the result that i got.i di gress a little bit here .i am part ley disabled & i go to cinter for such as i & i took my sample &had a shower & with some assistance used it on my hair,i dident realy notice any thing diffrent untill i used the sealer, wow what a difrence it made ,my hair felt so so soft,irinsed it off or thought i had ,i dident know there was so much lather to rinse so i had to rinse a second time ,when my hair was dryed &styled for me it was extreemly soft & was so easy to comb out without tangles&it was very quockley styled for me i ask the girl if she was or had been a hairdresser ,but she said no it was very easy to do.&was inpressed when i showed her the packagin so i think i got a convert .i give it110%out of 100

Lellie • 18/01/2012 - 21:14

I am so pleased that I was selected to take part in this project. I don't know when I would have tried the new Pantene (probably when I found it on offer at the supermarket to be honest) but I could not be happier with the results. My hair hasn't been in this good condition for many, many years. I've received compliments on my hair when this otherwise would only have happened after spending hours at the hairdressers. I'm really pleased to be able to share my secret with everyone!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Kelda • 19/01/2012 - 12:03

I am glad to have participated in the project. I found that in the first stages my hair responded better with the coloured products but as the colour faded I moved to the Aqua Light products as with my hair becoming greasier, it appreciated going over to a lighter range of products. The effects of all products I used made my hair look and feel healthier and shinier and I can't wait to try out some of the other products suitable for my hair type.
I loved telling my family and friends about the project and handing out samples and vouchers then getting their comments later.
Thanks all at Pantene.

tina666 • 19/01/2012 - 19:49

I love the new pentene pro-v it makes my hair feel lovely and clean. Unlike some other shampoo and conditioner that make my hair feel greasy and flat.My friends and family loved using the samples too.

Arabesque • 19/01/2012 - 21:53

I've loved being part of the project and have been really pleased with the results. I'm definitely going to continue to use the range - my hair looks in great condition and has been much easier to style. All my family and friends have loved their little free samples and vouchers - they're asking if I've got more they can have or if I've got anything else for them to try out!
Thanks Pantene and Savvy Circle!

sugarbunny • 19/01/2012 - 22:22

the shampoo makes my hair feel great. all my relatives and friends love it. they all want more vouchers even though i've run out. the smell is great and my hair feels fresh.

pinkpetal • 21/01/2012 - 15:00

I loved this study, The new pantene is amazing. Its a great product tha makes you feel good about your hair, after al us ladies tend to spend alot of money on cuts,& colouring, so why not go the whole hog & pampers ourselves at home too.

RedLinda • 21/01/2012 - 19:04

This new Pantene is seriously good stuff - it suits all the family (we use two types) and everyone's hair looks clean and healthy.
I've saved on haircuts because it looks so much tidier!

whatever1 • 22/01/2012 - 18:11

It's been great being involved in the project. The shampoo, conditioner and treatment are all great, smell fab and have left my hair looking so good I've had lots of compliments! It's been ages since I've felt this confident! I ran out a while ago so had to go and buy some more, and it;s definitely worth it :-)

testercjr • 23/01/2012 - 16:12

It has been great to be part of the pantene pro v project - thank you! but my hair has gone fluffy and dry.. I originally was given shampoo and conditioner for normal to thick hair, my hair light is light and fly away but I gave it a go... Then I used a sample for thin hair, the results were the really hasn't worked for me, what am I doing wrong?

raquelrocks • 24/01/2012 - 11:29

My thick coarse hair has become silky and even a bit of a shine is starting to appear! I am well impressed and have enjoyed the whole process. It has been fun, I've even made a few new friends! EVEN my mum has noticed the difference in my hair, which is amazing!!!!

selectively-mine • 27/01/2012 - 08:01

I tried to send in my final survey, but it didn't seem to go. Am I too late with it?

selectively-mine • 27/01/2012 - 08:04

I loved the new Pantene product, as did most people I talked with about it. It did leave my hair soft and healthy. The only thing was it was so gentle my hair needed washing more often than usual. (I don't generally wash it as regularly at this time of the year as in the warmer months.)

pondicherry • 27/01/2012 - 18:37

Fantastic product which was a joy to use. My whole family now use this product and all have nice smelling well maintained barnets.

party-girl • 02/02/2012 - 01:57

Absolutely loved The New Pantene Pro-V range. I have fine hair and these are the only products which have done as they said. Will not be going back to my old products. Everyone that I gave sample to has loved the products. No bad feed back to report.

susanmacc • 05/02/2012 - 19:26

I'm still using my samples and had another chat with my friends about it on Friday, really like the product, nothing negative to report.

buckp • 10/02/2012 - 17:44

Wonderful product. I have fine hair and definately noticed a difference. My hairdresser and friends noticed the difference in the condition of my hair.

Brams • 12/02/2012 - 15:04

This has been a fantastic project and I hope it has worked well for Pantene to get their message across and their product out into the market place. The new and improved Pantene is very good and most of the people I have given samples to and vouchers have been very pleased with the product and have gone on to purchase, which of course is the whole exercise of this project. However I think this project has been far too long there is only so much one can say about a Shampoo and Conditioner. Once it is out there on Facebook Family and Friends etc I think the job has been done. In my opinion I think these projects should run a max of three weeks.

donna0115 • 13/02/2012 - 21:37

hi i have think hair and i tryed pantene and it made my hair so soft and shiney and smoth i must say ive tyed lots of projects and this is buy far one of the best is all i can say
