Product Review: Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots

Ever heard of a Brazilian Blow Out? To sum it up it’s an amazing process that takes curly hair to straight but like with all processes it can cause hair damage. For the past eight years, Brazilian beauties have had this magic elixir to help them with their hair.

and now it’s offered to us…

This is the first at home hair treatment offered by Pantene and it was made for girls who have dry, damaged and over processed hair. Let’s face it a lot of us put our hair through the ringer from bleach, color, the sun, heat styling tools…all of that causes damage. It is just what we have come to expect. Maybe you don’t really do any of that to your hair but your hair is just dry because of the season…static anyone??

These rescue shots are full of a Provitamin B blended with some lipids and a natural glycerin. The lipids and glycerin will head straight to the damaged areas to be absorbed into your hair rather than sitting on top of the hair like with other hair products. All those ingredients are helping to repair the damage (like reducing split ends)…and from my experience I can completely say that this is true!

Also helpful, these are single use ampoules (tubes) that help you in not using too much product but just the right amount.

Now for me…as you know cause I post about it ALL THE TIME. I love drugstore products; that being said, there is one high end product I buy and have used for a while now. It’s for my hair. Girls…I baby my hair. I protect it. I have used and LOVED Olaplex for years. Although it killed my soul to buy it, I did. There has never been anything that worked as well as Olaplex for me. I was resigned to using it for ever and ever. Maybe not so much now

The back of the box lists 3 steps:

  1. After washing with Pantene shampoo and conditioner, dispense the ampoule into your hand.
  2. Apply onto damp hair and massage from midl length to ends
  3. Rinse thoroughly

So, how did I review it?

I used my normal shampoo and conditioner but DID NOT use any masks or other hair treatments while reviewing this product…not even one. Seriously just shampoo, conditioner and the intense shots.

I have been testing this product for about a week, maybe longer. I can say that my hair hasn’t been this healthy in a long time. I LOVE this product. It will go down as my favorite drugstore find and it will take something amazing to knock it off that throne! I will absolutely replace my beloved Olaplex with Intense Shots.

I can’t tell you enough how much this box is worth the mere $5 price tag. I absolutely can’t believe that this is only FIVE DOLLARS…let me say it again FIVE DOLLARS.

Each box comes with three single use ampoules (tubes)


If you have processed hair or even just dry hair that isn’t so bad to require you to use these with every wash, maybe you only need them once a week. Whatever your hair needs may be…once a week, once every two weeks, or like me every time I wash my hair…You need these girls!

Here is a link to Walmart but I have also seen them at Walgreens.
