Review: Pantene Relaxed and Natural Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer & Deep Conditioning Mask


 Pantene's Relaxed and Natural line is nothing new.  It's described as being
For women of color.  Advanced formulas to help make your hair up to 99% stronger against damage.

I never paid this line any attention because I thought it was a gimmick to get into brown girls wallets.  Like Pantene just realized that hey brown girls have hair too and they might actually like to wash and take care of it it so lets put it in a brown bottle with Women of Color across and they'll use it.  I use regular Pantene and when I did an ingredient check they seemed to same to me so I kept it moving.  I really had no intention of ever using this line until I kept hearing about how fabulous their hair mask was. It was like everywhere I turned folks were raving about it so when it was on sale at Target I figured it I could give it a try.  I also picked up their Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer.

Relaxed and Natural Daily Cream Oil Moisturizer 

This daily treatment with jojoba, coconut oil, moisturizers and Pro-vitamins helps prevent breakage. Its conditioning Pro-V formula helps transform dry hair into moisturized hair.

Helps protect hair against damage to keep it beautiful and healthy-looking
Helps prevent hair damage and split ends
Seals in moisture and has essential oils
  

Breakage Defense Deep Conditioning Hair Mask
 

This conditioning treatment is a key part of Pantene Relaxed & Natural's next-generation Breakage Defense Collection with Multi-Pro-vitamin Complex especially designed for women of color. It not only nourishes your hair from root to tip, but this deep conditioning mask helps:

Repair damage to smoothness and protect hair against damage
Prevent shedding due to breakage
 
I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised and  happy with both these products.  I absolutely love the Cream Moisturizer! Alone it's fab, paired with a little coconut oil it's the best thing on earth!  It keeps my hair moisturized for days.  When I use it alone it left my hair soft and shiny, there are no feelings of dryness or greasiness.  The mask is up there with my beloved Holy Grail Elasta QP DPR11.  This stuff left my hair feeling and smelling wonderful!  I will definatly be purchasing it again. Have you tried the Relaxed and Natural Line? What did you think of it?

I've tried the R&N line and was a long time Pantene user. I think all Pantene products give the illusion of softness because of all the silicons. I decided a long time ago that I would only use pantene for co-washing. i don't think it's the best thing for my hair.

Never been too much of a fan of these products. I used to the shampoo and conditioner back when I was first going natural and they stripped out soooo much of my hair's moisture and shine. So I've been too afraid to try anything else. LOL @ you sayin' they are just now realizing brown women have hair too. It's true!! Unfortunately, I don't know how well these products work on "coarse" hair so they need to head on back to the choppin' block, if you ask me.

I used to use the R&N line when it was first released. Now I'm lazy... I just add oils to my cheapie conditioners and keep it moving.

I started using R&N two years ago and loved it until.... Six months ago I realized that for the last two years my hair has been turning red and breaking off. Most of My hair turned auburn in the summer and brown in the winter even though I used black hair color. Also I begin to notice lots of hair breaking off and now my hair is down to two inches in some areas. I stopped using R&N three months ago and my hair has not turned red this summer and the breakage has slowed down, I mentioned this to my sister who used all Pantene products she realized her hair had turned various colors and was breaking off as well. Eureka!! The new only product I had used in the last two years was Pantene...Go figure.
