….& Overnight Protect Spray.
I’ve been eyeing up the Pantene Instant Repair and Overnight Protect Spray in Tesco for a while now. It’s for Normal to Thick hair which suits my hair just fine and also sounded like an interesting product to get my mitts on.
I wanted this product out of sheer curiosity as to what it would be like. I hadn’t read any reviews or heard anything about it. I used it last night on dry hair before I went to bed. The first thing I noticed was that it has an amazing smell. Not like the Pantene shampoo and conditioner, but almost an apple like smell. I sprayed some in my hand to rub straight into the ends of my hair and it’s like a non sticky cloudy liquid.
The thing I didn’t like about the packaging was the weird use of asterisks in the description. It says ‘Instant repair* & overnight protection** for dry/damaged hair *to smoothness **against styling damage’…. Now is there any need for all of those? REALLY? It goes on to once again explain the * and ** further down the description. Ever so weird (in my opinion anyway) So it instantly repairs your hair to smoothness? What does that even mean? Regardless of this though the instructions are pretty simple; ‘Before bedtime, spray on full head. Leave overnight, don’t rinse out’ And that is what I did….
So overall, I’m quite pleased with the end result. The good things about this product are;
-It smells nice
-It doesn’t make your hair sticky
-When you wake up your hair does feel soft and smooth and not like it has a product in it
-Doesn’t weigh your hair down
-It does pretty much what it says on the bottle.
-It comes with the affordable price tag of £2.99
The only downside to the product is when I go to bed with my hair ever so slightly damp I do tend to wake up with mental kinks and weird curly bits randomly scattered about. As I’m still making a point of not using hair straighteners this isn’t the best thing to have in the morning. BUT nothing that can’t be easily solved either by just wetting my hair with the tap and brushing through or even spraying a bit more of the Pantene spray in. It’s pretty much, for me, the complete opposite of the Pantene Ice Shine Creme
which I posted about last month.
