Review: Pantene Aqua Light

In April's Luxebox we received Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner, not a very exciting sample in and of itself.  However, this product is a silicone free shampoo, so I was excited to try it.

I had previously tried the higher end version by Free Your Mane and was happy enough with it to purchase the costly shampoo and conditioner.  I considered that this may be a more inexpensive alternative.  It was an epic fail.

I knew from the first time I tried it, I should have just stopped.  First of all, it just smelled like dish soap. It doesn't lather, just as other sulfate free shampoos, but the difference is it was really hard to work through your hair.  I bubbled, but it didn't lather.  It was just really strange.

The conditioner wasn't really much better...it felt like I was pulling through my hair.  You didn't have that smooth, I've just conditioned my hair feeling.

What was the result?  Dry, dull, thirsty looking hair.  On top of it...I got flakes!!! NO!!! Itchy flakes!  Yet, I kept using it for the sake of getting a good grasp on the product. To the last drop. I'd have to say it was the worst Pantene product I've ever used.  I would never ever buy it!

Have you tried it? What was your experience?

Have a good night beauties!

  1. I so dislike Pantene , It`s such a horrible brand, I use to use it all the time however it always made my scalp super itchy and irritated so I stopped , I love the organix brand, their kinds are assorted and are all amazing, $10.00 a bottle may be alot for some but it works and there isn't any junk in it like sulphates and parabens , Thanks for this review Aleks

    1. I remember using it all the time growing up, with no problems. I think this specific type was the WORST I ever used! :/ It's funny about the organix brand, I just read someone really didn't like it! In any case, I do have the full size Tame your Mane ones I haven't used yet..I'm trying to get through my samples first. lol
