Color, consistency, and fragrance: It has a smooth, thick, creamy consistency that glides on hair. The cream looks white in color, and it gets absorbed quickly without making the hair oily or sticky. The fragrance has a fruity smell that lasts a long time, making your hair smell good throughout the day. 

Pantene pro-v oil replacement Review

I prefer to use it on my damp hair, especially from the mid-length to ends, and gently massage it into the hair as a leave-in cream. It can be used for both wet and damp hair.

I also use this cream when I feel my hair is frizzy and rough. It feels light on the hair. It has a strong but pleasant scent of fruity, which I like. In my opinion, it works as a hair serum.

My hair is very rough and frizzy. This cream helps to keep my hair manageable and detangles my hair. But it lasts only 2 hours after a hair wash. It suits almost all hair types and is a super affordable product too.

It contains alcohol, parabens, and so many chemicals that are not good for our hair. That’s why I didn’t like this product. It cant be a replacement for natural oils. It is good as a leave-in cream only, which gives some instant results and is manageable for our hair.

Final Verdict:

This product is not an oil replacement. You should oil your hair at least twice a week. This product does work slightly for dry and straight hair. If you have very dry and rough hair, then it reduces your hair frizzy by 50%, not more than that.
