I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had received my first VoxBox from Influenster and I was super-excited about it. I received a couple of Pantene Pro-V's new "Full & Strong" items, including a full size shampoo and conditioner, as well as a travel size dry shampoo. I wanted to use the items for a couple of weeks before fully reviewing them online, so I could get a true feel for them.


I am lazy, so I tend to only wash my hair every other day or so. This shampoo/conditioner set is intended to make hair look more voluminous, so it doesn't really focus on hair being oily. While rinsing out the conditioner, my hair felt bigger in the shower (if that makes any sense). Generally, while rinsing my hair, it feels limp and stringy. That wasn't the case with this shampoo/conditioner, so I really liked that.
Once my hair was dry, it looked really good. It was shiny and had lots of body to it. Now, just to be clear, I don't do much styling to my hair. I use very minimal product in my hair (as in, shampoo, conditioner and occasionally dry shampoo). I generally wash it before bed, let it dry while I sleep, then straighten and/or curl it in the morning. So, it's not like my hair was an inch high and big like the lady on the box up there, but there was tons of body, so that was really impressive. Also, the shampoo/conditioner smells like apples (very similar to Fructis), so I really can't complain there.
The only thing I noticed was that the next day, my hair looked very oily at the roots. For those of you who wash your hair every day (are there any of you out there?!), this won't be a problem. Luckily for me, however, I also received the Pantene Blowout Extend Dry Shampoo, so I used that.
Shook it, sprayed it, rubbed it in, and brushed my hair. Other dry shampoos I have used have left a white, powdery residue behind (not good for my darker hair), and also made my hair feel stuff and weird. This one didn't do either of those things. My hair looked and felt freshly washed.

I would probably buy all three products in the future. I was very happy with them all. So, let's say 4 out of 5 stars!

Please keep in mind that while I did not receive compensation for these posts, I did receive these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
