Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots is a new deep conditioning treatment designed to intensively repair and restore damaged hair, caused by over-styling, heat damage and chemical treatments.
Although just launched here in the US, Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots is already of the most popular at-home hair treatments in Brazil, and promise to rescue hair even from extreme damage and dryness!
I’m all about silky-smooth, shiny hair. But since my natural hair is a bunch of not-so-smooth, super dry and damaged (thanks to regular coloring and heat-styling!) wavy to curly strands, conditioner is my best friend when it comes to haircare – the more moisturizing, the better if you ask me!
So when I heard about the new Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, it sounded like the perfect thing for my unruly tresses!
Packaged in single-dose tubes, Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots contain a ‘deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids, and natural glycerin that targets the damaged areas to give hair the flexibility and resilience it needs to endure styling and environmental stresses. Ideal for color-treated and heat-styled hair of all types.’
Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are supposed to be used once a week, instead of your normal conditioner. The directions suggest applying generously to fully saturate damp hair, from root-to-tip. I just leave it on for 2-3 minutes while I finish my shower and then rinse thoroughly.
These little tubes are meant for a single use, so you can apply all the product in there. One tube has the perfect amount for my thick, long (waist length) wavy-curly hair and I do use it with a generous hand! I think those with fine, straight and shorter hair might be able to get a couple uses out of one tube.
My ends tend to have the most damage, so I like to focus on those areas and apply more of the product from mid-length to ends. I have used the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots for 5 times now (once every week) and really loving the results!!
I love how incredibly hydrating the formula is and works its magic in just 2 minutes! It makes my hair feel very soft and smooth while also reducing frizz, without leaving any greasy residue or build up. It’s truly a luxurious treat for dry hair like mine!
Do I still need a leave-in conditioner? Yes, I do. My hair gets really tangled after washing so I always apply a little bit of my favorite leave-in serum (featured here) on towel-dried hair to help nix those knots easily!
That said, I am still very impressed with Pantene’s Intense Rescue Shots as a deep conditioning treatment. I love that it doesn’t need to be left on hair for a while (unlike many hair masks) but still treats your tresses with a ton of moisture AND also rinses off cleanly to avoid weighed-down hair.
If you heat-style and color-treat your hair often, Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots is a great weekly treatment to give your dry/damaged hair the TLC it needs. These power-packed shots really pack a punch and provide long-lasting moisture for a healthy, hydrated feel.
It’s quick, easy and there are no extra steps or time required! Not to mention, it’s $5 price tag makes it an affordable luxury! This is a definite repurchase for me!
