Foaming conditioner is apparently a thing now didn’t you know? Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner ($5.99) is one of several new foaming conditioners that are formulated for finer hair that have recently launched at the drugstore.
Pantene was one of the first brands to bring us BB Cream for our hair so when I noticed they were doing micellar hair care I wasn’t too surprise however, foaming conditioner? That was definately new, unique, and different from anything I’ve seen before from any hair care brand. I mean, this isn’t even a case of what’s old is new again as I can’t recall any brand ever releasing a foaming conditioner.
This, I had to try.
Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner arrives in a can that resembles hair mousse and once you use it you’ll find the texture is exactly like one as well. My sister and I had hit up Harmon’s recently and she was like, “Have you seen these? I saw a commercial for them! It’s a foaming conditioner!” She’s way ahead of the game because that moment was the first time I had ever heard of them. But I wasn’t terribly impressed and replied, “Oh you mean like a leave in conditioner? I prefer mists!” And she was quick to correct me and tell me no, this wasn’t a leave in treatment it was a wash out one. After looking at the can I was like, “Hmm maybe I need to check this out!”
Although, I don’t have finer hair and each formula available of this foam conditioner is for such a hair type I decided to give it a whirl.
Apparently it contains a Pro-V Micellar conditioning agent that has 0% weight whatever that is! They make no promises of it lifting away dirt or oil but merely a formula that rinses away easily and leaves hair soft and light.
After using it I totally get where they are going with this! If you have finer hair or hair that tends to break easily this is most definitely a formula for you. For long hair, you’ll need to use a palm size amount for the best results. I actually LOVED how light, airy, and easy to rinse out this was. I also adored how it left zero build up in my hair and rinses away fully. This isn’t a conditioner that will cause build up and you’ll experience a hell of a lot less hair loss and shedding as you rinse it out compared to a thicker conditioner. I shed like a dog when I condition my hair but when I used this I didn’t notice a single strand of hair go down the drain.
The texture is exactly like a hair mousse but as you apply it to your hair it has a bit more density than your average mousse. It somehow almost feels like it goes from a mousse to a lighter cream as you massage it into your hair but it also seems to melt right into your hair as you apply it. Once applied you can leave it on for a few minutes and allow it to condition your locks before rinsing it out. You’ll want to wash your hair first as normal before following up with this as your conditioner.
It rinses out very, very easily and I was shocked how well it worked out tangles and kinks in my long, wavy hair. As I brushed my hair after I was very impressed how it detangled my hair and tamed a bit of my frizz. However, I did feel like I needed a LITTLE more hydration. If they could fix that one issue this is near a perfect product.
Even if you aren’t prone to finer hair I would definitely check out the Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner! It’s a very interesting product that I had some fun with!
