Pantene info sorry for the hijack in advanced.
I came across this interesting site of scientists saying that all hairstylists are misleading our clients by saying Pantene is wax based and junky... They claimed on this site that it is the best out there, bashing stylists for not having a concept for science... Its just too bad that these scientists are unaware that to get your license you have to take bacteriology, physiology and anatomy, chemistry, biology, etc... There is actually alot of science courses required to qualify for your license.
Ok stating the above ...there is nothing that states it is wax based in the ingredients (that I have found comparing two differet formulations) but.... there is silcone in one of the top ingredients and it is also produced with ammonium laureth sulfate (which is higher on the pH and stripping... many shampoos are this way... since ammonium laureth sulfate as well as sodium laureth sulfate are usually the second ingredient after water and it is a cleansing agent)... This tends to tear away at the vibrancy of our hair color. There is however a new shampoo that is laureyl sulfate free... but costs big money.
Here is the MSDS links : (Only chose a few there are so many)http://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...ry_Damaged.pdfhttp://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...ry_Damaged.pdfhttp://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...ek_Shampoo.pdfhttp://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...onditioner.pdf
Some Ingredients that cause buildup aka waxy feel: But are used widely through all of the cosmetic industry (not that all cosmetics are great for us as is...). There are alot of emollient ingredients in Pantene Pro-V... Emollient can cause buildup since it is not a cleansing agent but a moisture agent... This isnt only an issue with Pantene Pro-V of course, it is an issue with many shampoo lines (even professional)... It is a never ending battle.
Here are two links for the emollients, that are commonly used with Pro-V (and in many other manufacture lines). I will add more if I continue to research (which will take forever since there are so many different formulations in that line, with different ingredients...) It wont kill you, I just think there are better options out there http://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...hicone_en.htmlhttp://www.pgbeautyscience.com/en_UK...thenol_en.html
