Review: Pantene Pro-V Clarifying Shampoo

My hair has not been my friend lately. It’s been getting greasy after one wash, being really lank and thin looking and also super tangly! I thought it was probably the shampoo and conditioner that I was using that was causing the problems but I’d been using it for about a year and had never had a problem with it before, then I remembered this post (which is 2 years old!) by Zoe aka Zoella about product build up! So that was the problem that I’ve been having! I popped to Boots in search of the shampoo mentioned in Zoe’s post but couldn’t find it! I did however find this one by Pantene. I’d never heard anything about this shampoo before and I found it hiding amongst the other Pantene shampoos, which all seem to have the same colour scheme! Tres confusing.
What They Say:
  • The Clarifying Shampoo features a high level of cleaning actives without any silicones.
  • It invigorates the length of your hair by removing grease and everyday build-up like residues from daily styling products.
  • DO YOU HAVE: great hair that suffers from everyday build up and styling residues?
  • AND YOU WANT: incredibly clean and healthy looking hair?
  • Then Pantene Clarifying Shampoo is for you. A cleansing formula, Pantene Pro-V Clarifying shampoo invigorates your hair from root to tip by removing grease and everyday build up (i.e. styling residues) to leave hair beautifully clean and healthy looking.
  • Directions: Lather, rinse. Repeat if required.
What I Thought:
  • It smells great! Nothing too offensive just a nice clean smell.
  • It does remove build up, my hair has been back to it’s usual self since using this!
  • It makes my hair really shiny and soft!
  • I think it makes my styling products work better than they did before!
  • I think I’m going to continue using this a few times a week, alternating with my other shampoo so my hair doesn’t get too used to it! Does hair do that?
  • You also get a lot of product! 500ml. For under a fiver!
Would I repurchase?
Definitely! I think I will rely on this from now on when my hair gets built up with styling products! It has done magical things!

You can buy this shampoo from Boots for £4.17 and I’m sure it’s available in Superdrug and the Supermarkets too!
Does your hair suffer with build up? Have you tried this or any other clarifying shampoo?


  1. I cannot express how happy I am that you posted this because I had no idea that Pantine even made clarifying shampoo! I know so many people who need something to remove build up in their hair and it seems like there are very few brands that actually make products for that sort of issue I've found a few in salons but they were rather pricy for the measly sized bottles they came in. I am defiantly going to look around for this one now.

  2. Dear Amy,

    thank you so much for posting this. I'm in search for the perfect shampoo for my hair since,.... well ever since I can remember.
    I know what you mean by build up and hair getting used to a shampoo. I even experienced my hair getting greasy after one wash with a really expensive shampoo. My hair just didn't seem to like it. At the moment I'm getting along but I still haven't found the perfect care products to make my hair look shiny and everything at the same time.... The way it should look.
    Maybe this will help. I have to try and find this product over here in Germany. Thank you.

    Have a good week.

  3. Thanks for the review! I have never tried a clarifying shampoo before because I thought they weren't worth it, but I might try one now.

  4. I love this shampoo...my fav for a long time :D

  5. Thanks for posting...I always wonder if Pantene stuff really works. Also, if you are in a pinch for a clarifying shampoo...just add some baking soda to any shampoo and it will do the same thing.

  6. I had no idea this even existed! I am def going to be trying this. I love your blog by the way!

  7. Ahhh i was so frustrated today with trying to find a good shampoo and conditioner. I use to use the Moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner but after a while the build up came and i had to switch to PPS moisture and cleansing. This to has left a build up and i will hunt this product down. I do have to admit to being a snob to Pantene as the adds simply piss me off and i have bluntly refused. I am now getting over myself and will most certainly give up my pride to something that may just work. Thanks for this pot luck post! Cheers.

  8. Hi!

    I love that shampoo!! Actually..I think I love every shampoo from Pantene I've ever tried.. I'm so happy you liked it!!
