Anyone who has hair as long as mine will tell you just how important conditioner is to our luscious locks, so when this intensive conditioner arrived for me in the post, I couldn't wait to give it a try.

When it comes to shampoos and conditioners, I'm not really a haircare snob... I've tried high end or more expensive brands but haven't really noticed too much of a difference, so I'm really open to trying anything, and Pantene is a brand I have used on and off for years and years now. I wash my hair usually every third day and condition it every other wash, which seems to work just right for my hair.
With my hair being ombre'd in the past, it's not in the best condition, it also could really do with about six inches chopping off, so it needs a little extra TLC. The length also means that day to day life make it knottier and just much more high maintenance. Other than shampoo and conditioner, I usually have to use oils and detangling products on my hair post wash, just so that I can get a brush through it, but by using this after every second wash, I've been finding my hair a lot easier to maintain.

I've been testing this out for the past three weeks now, and I've definitely noticed some positive changes in my hair. Like I've already mentioned, my hair is a lot less knotty (which when you have as much hair as I do, is a massive bonus), it is also feeling and looking a lot glossier and the dreaded split ends seems to be less noticeable. Once a week, I've been using it as more of a hair mask, leaving it on my hair for a good ten minutes before rinsing as a bit of an extra treat for my damaged ends.
Another added bonus is that it smells really fresh and rinses clean really quickly... I'd definitely tell anyone to give this a go.

There are other products in this new Breakage Defence range; shampoo, conditioner and a tonic, all of which contain the not so secret ingredient which is a copper fighting particle... to put it simply, there is excess copper in water, and the copper can cause the hair to oxidise (to me and you this means the hair gets weaker and appears dull)... these shampoos and conditioners work to neutralise and capture the copper, therefore protecting the hair. They also contain a new strength complex, which works to strengthen the hair from root to tip, which also helps to prevent breakage - something that my hair really needs.
If you would like to hear my views on the shampoo and other conditioner, let me know in the comments.
