Pantene Expert Collection Age Defy Shampoo and Conditioner


I noticed an improvement in my hair after just one use amd am even happier with it after 2 uses. My hair feels soft, smooth, silky and hydrated and it also has a lovely bounce to it. The softness stays even after heat styling, which is really impressive and the freshly washed shine is very long lasting.

It was only after I took these photos for the BaByliss Blog that I realised quite how much Pantene Age Defy has enhanced the appearance of my hair:

Age Defy, from the Pantene Expert Collection, is all about fighting the 7 signs of ageing hair: Breakage, Split Ends, Frizz, Unruly Grays, Lackluster Colour, Thin Look, Dryness.
Pantene Age Defy has been created with Olay Anti-Aging Experts in an attempt to treat the deterioration of hair as we age in the same way we treat our skin.
Pantene have conducted years of research to better understand what happens to our hair as we age. The hair that we grow as we get older is different to the hair that we produced when we were younger, and it starts to show the behaviours that I have listed above.

The Age Defy shampoo feels really good as it’s in the hair and has treatment characteristics, and as it rinses away, my hair feels instantly smoother. It contains a blend of 3 protective polymers, which deposits protective ingredients along the hair for offer maximum protection.

I leave the Age Defy conditioner on for as long as I can and once that is rinsed away, my hair feels even silkier. Its protective layer to help reduce friction and leave hair with moisture and movement.

Hair is really easy to comb though when it’s wet and dries to a gorgeous high shine. Love it!! It has honestly improved my hair in just a couple of goes.

Age Defy Shampoo and Conditioner is £5.99 each. Also in the range is Expert Collection Age Defy Advanced Rejuvenating Masque (£6.99) which is an intensive conditioning and anti-ageing treatment,  andExpert Collection Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment (£9.99). The Thickening Treatment contains a unique blend of caffeine, niacinamide (vitamin B3), panthenol (Pro-Vitamn B5) and should be massaged into root of wet or dry hair every day for best results.


I think it is brilliant value for such high performing products. If you suffer with any of the above, regardless of your age, I’d definitely recommend you give the range a try.

Pantene Expert Collection Age Defy is available at Boots and will be found in the premium isles.

  1. I’ve heard that Pantene use a silicone or plasticy substance that does give short term shine and bounce but in the long term actually causes more damage to your hair. Have you heard about this?

    1. Apparently, this is a myth. Silicone technologies are used by many of the leading hair care brands including Pantene, however there is no build-up effect by using hair care products featuring silicone. The silicone residues which provide the caring benefits are washed off at the next shampoo.

      Hope this helps!
