Pantene Pro-V Instant Nourishing Spray and the Hair Horror Story

One thing I never really post much about it hair, because quite frankly, I'm ashamed of mine and how badly I treat it. Hair experts and lovers, look away now! (Well... just skip the next paragraph..)

I've dyed my hair since I was in around Year 8, so about 12/13? And by the time I was 14 it was jet black, and I'd dye it every 3 weeks, all of it. This went on until I was about 16 when I completely changed my mind and wanted it white.. I started off using Colour B4, a product that strips your hair of any colour and it supposed to revert it back to your natural shade. This lightened my hair slightly, so I decided to colour it a dark brown and give my hair a rest for a month. From then on, I'd buy 2/3 boxes of bleach and after each bleaching session, colour it a gingery colour (basically, whichever colour the bleach achieved  I dyed it so it was the same shade all over..ish). I left it ginger for quite a while and reeeaally liked it, but alas, the white shade was in sight and after a hell of a lot more bleaching and toning, I am finally sporting a now out of fashion hair colour. I'm still so awful with it and put bleach all over rather than just on the roots, but now I've come across this little wonder, I don't feel all that bad..

So let me just run over my hair condition now: It's very dry on the ends and breaks VERY easy however my roots get oily incredibly quick. I tend to shower every other day however I can sometimes get another day out of it if I'm not doing much/I'm very lucky! As you can imagine there's plenty of split ends and I'm faced with frizziness on the second day after wash.

I found this bad boy on offer in Boots for around £2.50, I think it was in some kind of clearance, but I picked it up on a whim as I'd ran out of my hair oil. Another reason this pulled me in was the fact you had to shake it to mix up the separated ingredients - sad, I know. 

I'm SO glad I got this, it's really hydrating, my hair literally drinks this stuff up, but you can never use too much. I go pretty spray crazy with this and I'm never left with oil-slick hair the next morning. Sadly, you can't really repair damaged ends, but this does a great job in nourishing and making the appearance of my hair so much healthier.

You're able to use this on damp and dry hair, and although I've never used it on dry hair, I can imagine this would give your hair a beautiful shine and reduce any hard to tame frizziness. It smells beautiful as well, like all the Pantene range, it smells so clean, fresh and hairdresser-like. That's always a winner in my book.

Have you tried this, or do you have any recommendations on what I can use to get over my hair horrors?

**This product has actually been discontinued :( But you can find a really similar product HERE that is next on my list to try!

  1. My hair would literally drop out if I bleached it that much! it's soo fragile haha
    This sounds lovely though :) love that you shake it to mix it up :) how novel! Shame they've discontinued it though :( x

    1. Hahah, I feel awful for doing it :(.
      Definitely a shame they've discontinued! xx

  2. i have the most split-end hair known to all of man kind, regardless of how nice i treat it. since i started hairdressing, i've been trying all sorts of stuff to attempt to salvage it and promote a bit of hair growth, and i've started getting conditioning treatements in college with a steamer, and oh my LIFE it has done so much goodness!! try and find a salon near you that uses 'wella' products and go in and ask if you can have a trim and a cond. treatment with a steamer if possible, it will do a wholeeeeeeeee load of good!! xxoo

    1. Ooooohh I've never heard of anything like it! I'll definitely be popping into my nearest, thanks! :) xx

  3. Great post! I was thinking of purchasing until I read it was discontinued! Have you tried the overnight nourishing spray as well?
    btw thanks for leaving your link in the bbloggers chat!

    I purchased the instant nourishing spray today for half price in Sainsbury's. It has not been discontinued. I am looking forward to using it because my hair has become dry after my holiday in the sun.

  6. For laser hair removal I recommend booking a visit to a beauty clinic as it's the best way to get that unwanted hair off of your body.


I really appreciate all comments left and take my time reading and replying to them all, thank you!
