Beauty Review: Pantene’s Restore Beautiful Lengths ‘Smoothing Balm’

We’re all looking for that one product that will make our hair not only stronger, but will also give it that brilliant shine. And if there’s one thing we all deal with, it’s the havoc that our daily styling routines do to our hair. Whether it’s blow drying, curling, or flat ironing; we do a lot of heat related damage to our luscious locks.

I have always been a Pantene user, it always provided great results at a reasonable price. One day, I was sitting in a chair at the P&G Home at the BlogHer 2010 conference, getting a mini-makeover and I asked the stylist what she would recommend for smoothing my hair. She recommended a product from the Restore Beautiful Lengths collection from Pantene. Months later I purchased the ‘Smoothing Balm.’

Product Info: Pantene Restore Beautiful Lengths ‘Smoothing Balm’ $4.99 at Drugstore.com.

Product Claim: Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm helps resist breakage so you can grow hair longer* and helps keep fly-aways and frizz under control. It leaves you with smooth, manageable hair after you style it.

What I found out: The first thing I noticed about this product was the smell. It’s a clean and fresh scent. The balm is thick and non-greasy or sticky. After a regular blow dry your hair feels like it has a smooth protective coat on it, without being too stiff. I did find that it doesn’t take away all the frizz, but that’s probably because I didn’t use the diffuser that was recommended. And I love the shine it adds to my hair. 

Would I buy it again? Yes, definitely. This is something I can see me using for a very long time. I just have to get my hands on a diffuser and see if that helps with the leftover frizz.

 **I was NOT compensated for this review. The above is my true and honest opinion.
