  • Wanting to save my money for my vacation, I decided to try a generic (store brand) of the shampoo I was using at the time, which was Pantene’s Pro V
  • I found a comparable alternative to the Pantene at a CVS pharmacy near my hotel
  • I believe the Pantene was a 2 in 1 formula and this was not, but it looked like it might be a good fit for my hair, since I was dealing with some frizz and static due to the weather
  • I thought it best, in case for some reason the shampoo did something weird to my hair
  • I have more recently started using a lot of salon brands, as my hair has changed texture a bit in the last couple of years, but I would still consider using this brand, especially if CVS has another great sale like they did the day I bought my bottle of their “smoothing” shampoo

      I spent a week out of town and ran out of shampoo on the second night. Wanting to save my money for my vacation, I decided to try a generic (store brand) of the shampoo I was using at the time, which was Pantene’s Pro V. I found a comparable alternative to the Pantene at a CVS pharmacy near my hotel. It read “silky smooth formula” and was recommended for dry, frizzy and fly away hair.

      It was not the same exact copy of the Pantene I had been using. I believe the Pantene was a 2 in 1 formula and this was not, but it looked like it might be a good fit for my hair, since I was dealing with some frizz and static due to the


      weather. It was a big 25 ounce bottle on sale for nearly half its regular price, so it was a deal that I could not refuse.

      I decided to try it out that night instead of waiting until the morning when I would be rushing around trying to get ready for the day. I thought it best, in case for some reason the shampoo did something weird to my hair. Not that I don’t trust CVS brands, but you never know! It was a risk I took when I bought the item.

      When I washed my hair, the shampoo felt great. It had a rich creamy lather, a nice soft scent, similar to Pantene’s own scent– and it rinsed easily and left my hair ...


      • feeling very soft and smooth. When I dried my hair, it did look smoother and shiner.

        The next day, when I went to style my hair, there was no static or flyaways. There was a little bit of frizz still, but one cannot expect miracles. I treated the frizz with a styling product and all was well.

        The shampoo left my hair feeling light and clean. I was worried it might have had some additives that would weigh the hair down or reduce the volume, but this didn’t seem to be the case. I continued using this shampoo throughout the trip and for several weeks after I got back home.

        The large bottle lasted a long time. I did switch to another brand while I

        still had some left in the bottle, because I felt my hair might be getting some build up, so I used a shampoo designed to eliminate build up. After this, the CVS formula worked a bit better.

        I think it is a good product and similar to Pantene’s level of quality. I would definitely recommend that Pantene users try it out and see if they might be able to save a lot of money on their hair care. I have more recently started using a lot of salon brands, as my hair has changed texture a bit in the last couple of years, but I would still consider using this brand, especially if CVS has another great sale like they did the day I bought my bottle of their “smoothing” shampoo.
