Pantene Pro-V

Pantene Pro-V

The history of Pantene.

Pantene-history-jpg

Pantene has developed it's latest Pro-V collection and has given us the chance to be some of the first people to try it out.


When the project starts you will get the chance to become part of Pantene history by trying and sharing your thoughts on the collection with your friends and family.

But before then, let’s delve a little deeper into Pantene’s history and see why they have become a health expert associated brand and the ways in which we can make a difference during this Savvy Circle project with our friends and family.

The Pantene project handbook contains just some of the most memorable points in Pantene’s 50 year history. We now have the chance to become part of this amazing timeline by becoming some of the first people to try out this as-yet unreleased hair care collection.

Why not invite your friends & family to join the Savvy Circle and participate in the Pantene Pro-V project so they too can try and test this new range and experience a Savvy Circle project for the first time.

The application phase of the project will be open for another couple of weeks but we are already starting to see a lot of excitement on the blog.

"Loving being part of the Savvy Circle. Hoping to get a chance to try this new product from Pantene. It sounds very promising for every hair type." Savvy Circle member abcde121

"I hope I can get a chance to be involved in this exciting project. I am looking forward to trying out the new hair product and tell everyone about it!" Savvy Circle member DrPerry

@all: Let us know what you think of Pantene's history and what you think it would be like to be part of it!

Interesting facts on the history of Pantene!
My family and I have been using Pantene products for the last 30 to 40 years, so feel that we have helped the products be rightly established on shop shelves, by buying Pantene's great products!
Pantene's products have always had a great, lasting, professional finish and fragrance, that I would strongly recommend to anyone.
Missing the traditional "Gold-cap" branding though! :)
Really excited and looking forward to (hopefully) being part of another great Savvy Circle Project Team!! x x

would love to be a part of this i love trying out new hair products and letting people no what i think of them

jj32 • 29/10/2011 - 09:55

Didnt think pantene had such a long history i have always seen it as quite a new product. Just shows how good they are at their marketing :0)xx As i'm sure all of us do would love to be part of this somehow the wait seems to be making it very exciting ;0)

shipwreckmedic • 29/10/2011 - 19:00

Really hope I get the chance to try out pantene, I do love having a good old pamper and what better excuse for the hubby than I have to im part of the savvy circle!! ;) ha ha

testanna • 29/10/2011 - 23:00

From 1947 till the present day Pantene has been on the go & thanks to the show's like Charlie's Angels they then created the conditioner . I think it will be a good project to try as it is sooo hard to find the right treatment & shampoo , conditioner is it ladies, So it would be interesting to see if the Pantene Scientists have found a formula for each hair type as i know i still have not found the right 1 yet it's so annoying :(

Madamtutat • 29/10/2011 - 23:42

I knew and used Pantene when i was a kid, and now i am 30. All of my family love it too. I really hope to have chance to try out new Pantene for coloured hair as i just coloured my hair and i am looking for good shampoo, conditioner and treatment to keep the colour longer and add shine and smooth to my hair

LiveLaughLove • 31/10/2011 - 13:36

I'm really excited about this and am dying to be part of it. i use Pantene anyway so would love the chance to test out the new ones. :)Hope they pick me! x

rose1001 • 31/10/2011 - 15:47

Pantene has such a long history of being a leader in the haircare market, starting with shampoos, then conditioners, hairsprays and mousse, now they have produced these new treatments which sound really exciting. They have so many types of shampoo and conditioner that it is easy to find the right combination for any hair and their appeal is worldwide. No other company comes close.

Over the years Pantene have kept on improving by tweeking ingredients and expanding their range of products, this latest innovative treatment shows how they never rest on their laurels and will not be satisfied until we all have the most luxurious hair possible.

What they began in 1947 is still as relevant to day as it was then and I would really love to be part of such a long established and highly regarded company's newest project, it would be an honour.

SA23 • 31/10/2011 - 19:09

This sounds like such a great project, really hope I get picked I really need a good shampoo/conditioner.

marskie • 31/10/2011 - 19:35

I am now 50 years old and have used Pantene products for many many years. Knew they had been around for a long time but did not realise that it was for 50 years. I have swapped and tried other hair products on the market but somehow always come back to Pantene. It does not make my hair feel greasy or weighed down and i always get an incredible shine from using the products. Oooh would so love to try their latest hair care products. Sounds a great project to be involved in and just what my hair needs at the moment.

martinarose • 31/10/2011 - 20:01

i hope i'm picked for this . i'm really enjoying these projects

iluv2shop2day • 01/11/2011 - 08:04

Really hoping I am chosen for this as it's so difficult finding a good product for fine hair that doesn't weigh it down, especially with having long hair.

MysteryShopper0007 • 01/11/2011 - 13:58

No seriously I have got such long hair,it reaches way past my hips everyone calls me Rapunzel (honest they do). I have tried al sorts on my hair so that my hair is washed,conditioned and moisterized right from root to tip.I did use to use Loreal Elvive when it was on offer but now it has gone pretty expensive,I now use Pantene Repair and Protect shampoo and conditioner.(2 for £3.50 at Asda ) I would love to be part of Pantene Pro-V new project.

jl0795 • 01/11/2011 - 20:12

I'm really excited about this project! My hair is one of my most important features and I love experimenting with different products, especially since I'm still finding the perfect one! Hope I get through! :)

testanna • 03/11/2011 - 21:11

Heeey ladies hope im a lucky member to get chosen for the project it sounds GREAT!! It is sooo hard to find the right shampoo,conditioner,treatment for your hair well mines is but will keep my fingers crossed i get to be part of project. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! HOPE WERE ALL CHATTING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT SOON :)

Holly_1 • 04/11/2011 - 13:24

I like being invloved in the circle and hope that i can join in on this project as i love Pantene

nbr1968 • 04/11/2011 - 13:36

Already started a "buzz" amongst my "posse" about these new products - their hair is what defines their day - bad hair morning = bad hair day! Good hair morning = bring it on!

Hope to get chosen and "itching" to get started (was there an anti dandruff product to try! ;))

lisajr • 04/11/2011 - 18:01

would love to get picked to try this product - I am always interested in trying out new shampoos to compare their abilities and performance. Fingers crossed I'm a lucky chosen one! :-)

noni37 • 05/11/2011 - 07:41

Hi im new to supersavvy me and to be picked for this project would be great ive been using pantene products for years to despite trying others i always come back to pantene. Hope to be writing my thoughts about the porduct here soon and good luck to everyone.

carsonsmummy • 05/11/2011 - 14:40

I have always been an on-off buyer of pantene and it is mainly down to not finding the right type for my hair. This does sound like an exciting project and I am always more swayed to be a customer when I get to try before I buy... almost like testing it out for my personal purpose but being selected to be part of this would mean that it works both ways. I get to test it for myself and test it for your feedback. I am crossing my fingers and hoping to be accepted! Thanks

babe38 • 06/11/2011 - 20:50

I have always purchased Pantene from time to time alongside my other hair products.I remember well growing up with it with friends and relatives always having a bottle or two of it in their bathrooms.
I think that the new products look very elegant and exciting and I would feel very pleased to be given the chance to try these things out and to share my comments with other people.
I think that Pantene is a high quality product and I used to love watching the adverts for it when I was growing up.It certainly swayed it for me and my hair loved it too! In fact recently when I had my hair cut a bit shorter,a friend commented that I looked like a girl form one of the Pantene adverts.I was very happy about that and like to swish my hair in the same way!!

babe38 • 06/11/2011 - 20:59

My family and friends would love it too if I got the chance to be chosen for this project.We are forever talking about hair products and often recommend new things to each other.I love being able to talk about new products that come onto the market and we all really enjoy using nice new products and showing off how glamourous they make us.
I have been growing out some old colour out of my hair so at the moment I have switched from colour care products to ones that are more for fine to normal hair.I will have some different colours added again at some point in the future,but for now I am experimenting looking after my hair with some exciting new things.

iluv2shop2day • 08/11/2011 - 07:12

Hoping I get to join in this new Pantene project. It would be wonderful to find hair products that actually work with my fine hair! Fingers crossed and good luck to all!

tonibeau88 • 10/11/2011 - 10:19

Pantene is such an institution in this country! i absolutely love it, i even remember the smell of it on my mums hair when i was little, i used to sit and brush her hair for hours! such interesting facts on here! if i am picked i will definitely be sharing all these bits of wisdom! really hop i get picked so i can get lovely hair, it definitely needs something!!!!!!

Fairyangel • 10/11/2011 - 10:42

Really hope I get chosen to test the new Pantene products. My hair is dull and lifeless could really do with the boost these products could give it.

Joni • 10/11/2011 - 13:10

@all: We’re glad you are all so excited. Keep an eye out on the blog for any new blog posts! :)

cjwylie • 12/11/2011 - 20:33

Theres 5 women in my family (myself and four daughters) all ages from 50 something down to 15, so you can imagine the excitement and anticipation we are all feeling, and the variety of hair we have, my son is quite excited too, he's quite happy nicking our shampoo and conditioner, says it makes his hair nice and shiny!

pepi • 14/11/2011 - 09:35

looking forward to the next survey and hope to be part of your team for the Pantene trail .i have very difficult hair so any chance of a new product that can help will be greatly recieved.

pollymac • 15/11/2011 - 11:34

Would love to take part in this,as my hair is very fine due to a thyroid problem,when i was younger i used pantene,but lately have been using morrocan oil products which are very expensive, so would like to test the new pantene products to see if they measure up, excuse the pun( to see if it does exactly what it says on the tin) Even if I don't get picked I will buy the product and do my own test, and will post my findings here.

babe38 • 20/11/2011 - 14:00

I really hope that I am one of the lucky people chosen to take part in the Pantene project.Hair products are one of my absolute favourite things for using.I think that it is very important to use good quality products to care for your hair.After all it is your crowning glory and having nice clean healthy hair makes for a good appearance.
I have fine shoulder length hair but quite a bit of it.Sometimes it can be tricky caring for it as with some other types of hair at times.It is always good when a hair product offers a variety of formulas to address different problems.I feel that Pantene does just that and I would be very excited to be given the chance to sample these things and give some feedback to other people interested in such matters.

Itzybitzy • 22/11/2011 - 14:01

When do you think we will find out? I cant actually remember when i registered LOL!

Itzybitzy • 22/11/2011 - 14:47

And i also would be thrilled to be chosen to try it as i have a real problem finding a shampoo and conditioner which doesnt make my hair terribly greasy after about 3/4 of a day. Pantene has never done this so i would love to test drive their new range :)

mavidor • 24/11/2011 - 17:01

Hi Jo, Thank you for adding me to the team, can't wait to get started!

andreab8321 • 24/11/2011 - 17:16

TiggyWigg • 24/11/2011 - 19:45

Diamond58 • 24/11/2011 - 21:42

I have just heard I have been chosen to take part in this fab project. I have always returned to Pantene after trying various other brands and can't wait to try the new range, my hair needs a little help at the mo after a stylist over bleached it!!!!

asma118 • 25/11/2011 - 16:56

thehortons • 25/11/2011 - 19:59

WOW!! received my kit today and I must say I am impressed with the speedy delivery! I have just used it for the 1st time and my hair now feels so light, refreshed and soft! Ive never found a shampoo that makes hair soft, without feeling heavy! well done Pantene! so far so good!!
Also a lovely touch with the free samples to give away, im going to give mine away as a thank you for completing the research sheets!

dippydeb • 26/11/2011 - 11:44

Mackem • 27/11/2011 - 15:27

Very pleased to have been picked for the trial. I have already started to use the products and my first impressions are very good. Have also started to hand out the samples to family and friends.

RCS0710 • 28/11/2011 - 20:44

Came home on Friday to a lovely suprise, fab packaging cant wait to try the products out!!

alexsandie • 29/11/2011 - 21:30

wow..... My kit arrived Friday, I love the new design and the stylish bottles. I always use Pantene and it has always been great for my long hair, I really didnt think there was anything to beat it but the New Pantene is fantastic, it smells nice, feels great and my hair feels so soft. already handed over half my smples out to work collegues and members of my family, am now just awaiting their feedback, but I am seriously impressed.

babe38 • 04/12/2011 - 21:06

I didn't get chosen for the project this time around so I was slightly disappointed,nevertheless I shall be trying out the new products myself in the next few weeks and I will share my views on here with everyone else.
I am also looking forward to reading the opinions of other people that were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in this trial.I think that it is very exciting and interesting to see what other people make of a product that you are interested in.
I have always liked Pantene hair products and I am looking forward to sampling their new products for myself and passing on any hints and tips to friends and relatives.The new packaging does look good.

2068313577830241844 • 08/12/2011 - 19:25

Tried it out today my hair looks fab will be posting photos tomorow thanks again xx

yoshi2 • 13/12/2011 - 07:05

I hope you read this as received gifts, but was really busy with Christmas activities so kept in box. Since then felt ill and have been dianogsed with pneumonia (also Asthma sufferer), so I haven't forgotten box, but no way will be able to do anything about it yet. Many thanks, Helen Bamford

hedmonds • 13/12/2011 - 10:24

This is a great project to be involved in! I was a little sceptical to begin with after the first use, but I'm finding that after repeating my hair seems to be feeling stronger and always feels very healthy and clean after washing. Definitely feeling more positive about my pantene now. More feedback to come soon.... :-)

Tesshawk • 13/12/2011 - 18:27

My hair is long and curly - which borders on frizzy if the weather is damp - which lets face it - is about 90% of the time. It is also coloured regularly as a matter of necessity nowadays (gone are the days when I coloured it just for fun) ;-(
Pantene has been one of the (very) few shampoos and conditioners that can control the frizzies and give me soft , shiny hair. I confess that I have strayed and tried others who promise miracles (usually at 3 times the price), but who fail to deliver.

Ciara21 • 14/12/2011 - 14:17

Loving the new formula been using it for a few weeks now and my hair is so much cleaner and bouncy I have very fine hair and with this it looks so much better!!

Elirojes • 14/12/2011 - 19:08

I love Pantene! Makes my hair so soft and clean and the smell ... Just love it

Marguerita • 15/12/2011 - 21:25

I have now given out all my free samples and have had some comments back - but not all.

mccrory11 • 17/12/2011 - 02:14

Well i received my package in the middle of one of my mummy mornings which I have every week for friends of mine with kids! It was a lovely treat and all the girls where very Jealous and wanted to know how they could get involved we took the kit out of the book and handed out the free samples and vouchers and I told them all about supersaveyme and they are hooked!
Then the next day i started to use the products sent to me and I love them especially the serum its fantastic!

27sample • 17/12/2011 - 14:47

Was commented today on how shiny my hair is!!! loving this new shampoo!

Elirojes • 03/01/2012 - 10:10

Pantene is my favourite, sometimes when I'm buying it, I can not make up my mind which one to get, they all smell so nice. End buying more than one :-)
