Review: Pantene Brunette Expressions Shampoo & Conditioner

Last time I got my hair cut, I was chatting to my hairdresser about colouring hair. I said that I had never had my hair coloured professionally and didn’t intend to start until I needed to cover grey. She said how sensible – she started colouring hers in her teens and wished she hadn’t as now she has grey and has to do it. She said my hair was a great colour but it might benefit from using a brunette shampoo, just to enhance the colour further. I have used the Boots own brand one before, but it has changed in recent years and is now for brunettes & redheads and is not as good as it used to be. On a whim I went to Asda to see what they had in stock and spotted that Pantene do a colour enhancing shampoo and conditioner for brunettes. It was cheaper than the John Freida once I was initially looking for so I thought I’d try it. After 2 or 3 weeks use, I can’t say that I have noticed a particular difference in the colour of my hair. Any apparent highlights that show up on my pictures have more to do with the light than anything else I think. But I like the smell of it – it smells very professional hairdresser-y, and I like that the conditioner leaves my hair very soft and I will probably continue to use it.
Pantene Brunette Expressions Shampoo & Conditioner are £2.99 each and there is currently a 2 for £5 offer on Pantene products at Boots.

  1. TIGI brunette shampoo is fabulous! It is more expensive, but it is worth it!
