Size Name: 10.1 Fl OzVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I am an Amazon.com Vine Program reviewer and am offered two books or products twice a month in exchange for an honest review. This month I saw some products that my wife might benefit from. She asked me to order this one for her. I did so with the promise that she would write the review. This is her review:

"I suffer from what I call "Thyroid Hair" which means that I have thin, fine, dry, flat hair. I was fortunate to get the Patene Expert Collection Age Defy Shampoo from Vine. It has now been 10 days of daily shampoos and I can honestly say that my hair is less dry, smoother, and fuller than in the past.

The shampoo is thick, rich and has a subtle fragrance which lathers into an emollient rich expensive salon type shampoo and it cost about $8 for 30 ml. This is a great buy. In fact I have decreased the amount that I use since it produces so much lather. My hair get much drier in the winter months and I am a daily user of the blow dryer and curling iron, but this product has left my hair less dry or brittle looking, fuller and more shiny than it has ever been. The results are visible not only to me but to family and coworkers who have noticed the difference from flat to full and dull to shiny. I am so pleased that I will also be purchasing the conditioner that is recommended. Thanks Pantene."

I can tell you first hand that my wife's hair looks so much nicer and really smells even better since she started using this product.

Although this product was free in exchange for this honest review, we will reorder it when this one gets low.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: 11-28-2012
After using daily for a week, I still love this product. HOWEVER, don't fall for the Olay/Pantene marriage hype that it will 'fix 7 signs of aging hair'. While the product does rinse out amazingly well and adds marginal volume, it's sulfate based and for me, it is drying. I find I need to deep condition more than normal with it. The label claims it 'fixes' frizz, dryness and dullness. Dullness seems to be better; hair is shinier. But the frizz/dryness? No way. If you live in a humid climate (it's going into winter here in Ohio and very dry) you might be ok without conditioner. For me? It drys me out a bit. Might be fine in the summer. I haven't noticed any residue/build-up although it does have silicones in it. Hope this helps you out!

I have thin, fine hair that is always limp and looks oily after a day. I shampoo every day because otherwise, my hair looks like it hasn't been washed for a week. I have used Pantene products before with so-so results; nothing amazing. I bought this because I read an article about how this formula not only helped with the signs of aging hair, but also gave great body. Here's the thing; I have never used a shampoo without needing at least a very light conditioner (and in the winter, much heavier conditioners) to get the shampoo residue and tangles out of my jaw-length bob. I used this once and I simply could not believe that I could run my hands through my hair after rinsing, still in the shower, without ANY type of conditioner. That's a huge deal for me. My hair is very dry, especially now in winter as I color my grays regularly. Fearing fly-aways, I used a tiny amount of conditioner on the ends and then dried/styled. Wow! Body, shine, softness and none of that heavy silicone layer feeling I've felt from some products before. It's day 2 now and I have to admit; my hair looks great and I haven't washed it again yet! This is my new best friend. Note: Shampoo is yellow/brownish in color, a little thick but easily lathers and rinses out. The scent is nice; not too strong and for a jaw-length bob I only needed about a dime sized dollop. Will update in a week or so to see if buildup is a problem. I still can't believe how well it rinsed out!

I have baby fine hair, so I'm always looking for a decent volumizing shampoo. This claims to give your hair some "extra fullness" and help prevent split-ends and breakage. The perfect shampoo for me...or so I thought.

My hair felt soft and healthy before I used Pro-V Expert. After using it my hair felt dry, brittle, and very fragile. It was so tangled and dry that I couldn't even get my widetooth comb through it. I used a deep conditioner to try and bring it back to life, but it was useless. Not only did Pro-V Expert fail to reduce breakage and split-ends, it actually caused my hair to break!

My mother also tried this shampoo and the same thing happened to her hair - it felt like a brillo pad!

To top it all off, I suffered a horrible allergic reaction. My scalp began to itch and burn within 5-10 minutes of leaving the shower. My scalp actually became quite pink and started to swell a bit. The burning and itching lasted for the better part of two weeks. My doctor suggested that the citric acid and caffeine in this shampoo were what caused my allergic reaction. Like one of the other reviewers, I was actually left with scabs on my head because of the citric acid.

This shampoo may work wonders for some, but if you have sensitive skin, be careful, carry out a skin test - like you would with hair dye - before using.

Size Name: 10.1 Fl OzVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
While I don't many of the problems listed on the label that this product is supposed to help, I do fight with unruly grey hair. My hair is about 70% my natural color and 30% grey, but those awful greys want to stick up and be noticed. After using this shampoo for about a month I can say that I like it. It lathers well yet rinses clean without leaving any residue behind with a pleasant fragrance. It leaves my hair soft and manageable without being so overly moisturized that it hangs limp. Do all of the greys stay hidden because of it - no, but they are definitely easier to control.

Size Name: 10.1 Fl OzVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This Pantene AgeDefy shampoo says it will fight 7 things: "Breakage, Split Ends, Frizz, Unruly Grays, Lackluster Color, Thin Look, and Dryness." Being as old as the hills, and having masses of unruly, frizzy, crazy gray hair, I figured I'd be a good test subject for this shampoo. The result after one wash is quite good, though voluminous. My hair is soft and shinny, with less frizz, but simply a ton of curls. I look like an aged '80s Big Hair rocker. I mean Really Big Hair.

The aroma is very pleasant, and the feel of the shampoo is lusciously creamy. The only thing I don't like, but I expected from a mass production brand like Pantene, is it is a chemical concoction with a lot of things I can't pronounce. Words like Guar Hydroxypropylyrimonium Chloride (acts as a conditioner). It also has Blue 1, Yellow 5, and Red 33. So as much as I like my '80s rocker curls, this isn't a shampoo I'll be using on a regular basis. If you don't mind a lot of chemicals, and have one or more of the 7 problem areas listed above (especially "Thin Look"!), this Pantene AgeDefy shampoo will do the job.

I am 26 years old, thin curly hair. I love trying new thickening or volumizing products and I especially like anything that promises to reduce frizz and increase shine. money is not a problem as I'm willing to try new products at any price so I decided to give the full system a try and bought the shampoo, conditioner and thickening treatment. I was really hoping for good results but after the first wash, my hair was DULL, DRY, FRIZZY! It did have a thickening effect but not the one you would want. My hair felt coarse and unruly. I gave it another shot and washed again another day but this time blow dried my hair with a round brush hoping it would help with the smoothness instead of letting it air dry.....that was a little bit of an improvement with a little less dullness and frizz. I am on day 3 and hate to say but I will have to return this shampoo and conditioner. Maybe I will try the keratin shampoo instead but I would just wait for a free sample instead of spending money on it again.

I will also keep the thickening treatment and try using it with another shampoo/cond combo and hope that will help.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone who has thinning hair. My hair was at the point where I was beginning to be self conscience about it. This stuff is fantastic. I use the shampoo and serum. But I will admit that Amazon's price is double the price than the grocery store. At whatever price, it's still worth the money.

Size Name: 10.1 Fl OzVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
So, normally I use pretty cheap stuff to wash my hair. In fact, I pretty much go find the cheapest possible mass per weight and get that. Out of habit, I usually shower before bed rather than in the morning. Well, I guess it's no surprise then that I usually wake up looking like I spent the night on the railway tracks.

First off, this stuff is pretty pricey compared to your budget shampoo, and you shouldn't expect it to make any huge difference overnight. Or even over a week. It has a nice smell and is very thick, and it rinses out pretty quickly. After some use, I have noticed that my hair is a lot more soft and tends to spring back into shape a lot faster if squashed. It also doesn't feel as dry as it used to.

On a side note, I do have really sensitive skin that has a tendency to get pretty itchy and nasty if I wash it over with chemicals frequently. So far, I haven't had any problems with this shampoo. I'll admit that it hasn't been a whole lot of use, but I'll tentatively say here that it's skin-safe.

Perhaps the best thing I can say about this is it's made me rethink being a cheapskate on shampoo. I'm not wholly convinced that it does every single thing the manufacturer claims, but it's been enough of an improvement that I'll probably buy more of it.

I am 54 and about 30% grey. I have been using pantene for about as long I can remember. So here I go. I bought shampoo and conditioner. It did tame my grey hair but my hair was dull ,weighed down and just plain drab. No silky smooth feeling at all. My hair also was falling out more than usual. I used it for 2 weeks to give it a chance. Washed my hair today with good ole regular pantene and it feels good to be back to smooth and silky, and I will live with my unruly grey hair.: )

First of all this stinks, literally like nauseating overly sweet oil or olay (yuck). It did not make my hair thicker it made it thinner weighted down, flat, sad and worst of all??? It gave me very bad dry scalp/irritation/dandruff I had SCABS on my head I'm not sure if I'm allerigic to something in it or the fragence is irrating to the scalp but this is literally a hot mess. I'm done with pantene, they were great in the early 90's but since then nothing of theirs has even come close to their old scents and the body their shampoos USED to give me hair, it's a shame.
