Review | Pantene Pro-V Root Reboot Dry Shampoo

Last night I had a product review post just about ready to publish, finishing up the links etc. when I came across an announcement (or whatever you'd like to call it), stating that the product had just been discontinued. Dammit!! I didn't see the point in doing a post on something that will no longer be available once the shelves clear. So, sorry for the lack of a weekend post this past weekend, but here's a bit of a replacement review for you.

Today I'm talking about the Pantene Pro-V Root Reboot Dry Shampoo.
I've had this product for many months now, just trying to love it, but I can't and here's why:

It smells and acts like a hairspray, with the exception of the white cast. I find it very sticky and stiff.

It doesn't absorb the oil, as a dry shampoo should. I actually find that it accentuates the fact that my hair is getting oily, and needs to be washed.

It is heavy in the roots. If you spray VERY lightly, and hold the hair vertically, spraying directly into the root, it can be used to create some volume, which is was I've been occasionally using it for because I hate to see it go to waste.

This product claims to make hair feel cleaner, instant oil absorption with zero weight. Well, as listed above, I disagree with each of those statements.

I do not recommend this product, though I hate to say it. Generally, I quite enjoy Pantene products, especially their shampoos, conditioners and detanglers.

Have you tried this product? What's your opinion of it?


  1. I haven't tried this before but I absolutely love the Klorane dry shampoo so you should try that next! It's not heavy in the hair at all and absorbs oil so well.

    1. I got the Klorane Refresh & Revive dry shampoo with oat milk in my Ipsy last month. Is that the same one your talking about? I've only used it once while running out the door so I didn't really pay attention to whether it worked well. I'll definitely try it out more soon!

  2. Good to know, thanks for sharing!
