Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum Review & Swatch-
Hello my pretties!
Ever since I had realized that oiling my hair overnight gave me major bouts of buildup & dandruff, I have completely stopped oiling my hair at night. But my dry, frizzy hair ends were not too pleased at that decision either so I kept looking out for products which would give me a prolonged leave-in treatment without wreaking havoc on my sensitive scalp. That’s when Pantene overnight miracle stepped in at a friend’s recommendation & I had stocked up on 3-4 bottles from ebay. Let’s see why I got so many!

My take on the Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum-
The packaging is very smart, convenient & travel friendly. It comes in a sturdy round bottle with a pump & tight lid which does not leak even if popped in my bag while travelling.
The product is white, translucent gel-cream like & I pump out 3-4 pumps to spread evenly over my entire hair from mid-lengths to ends. Owing to its light texture, it spreads very easily even on dry hair & dries within 5 minutes. It leaves behind no greasy/tacky feel & does NOT stain clothes or pillow covers.
When I wake up, my hair feels nice & detangled (even if left open) & I just rinse it off before I shampoo & condition my hair normally. On days I use this, I usually forego my serum/leave-in conditioner simply because this is enough. It does fight frizz to quite an extent & keeps hair ends looking less like hay & more like nourished well maintained hair. Does it repair hair? NO. Can anything repair something which is already dead? NO. But it does a pretty good job at keeping dry, frizzy, damaged hair looking much better than usual & that’s all we pretty much want without the hassles of oiling.
The fragrance is pretty mild & nice, quite unlike the very strong fruity Pantene scent & fades within minutes of application so won’t bother people.
Pros of the Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum:
1> Very convenient, sturdy pump bottle packaging with tight lid.
2> Lightweight gel-cream texture, not sticky or greasy on hair.
3> Easy to apply & spread, dries very fast.
4> Does not leave behind stains or grease spots on pillows.
5> Tames & smoothens hair, fights frizz & keeps hair looking good & nourished.
7> Mild, inoffensive smell- does not linger.
Cons of the Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum:
Availability is a huge issue which is why I stock up whenever I see these online.
Swatch of the Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum-
My Rating: 4.5/5!
Do I recommend the Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum?
Pantene Overnight Miracle Serum is a very affordable, overnight treatment for dry, frizzy hair which softens & smoothens hair without weighing it down or causing any havoc on greasy, sensitive scalps. I use this overnight whenver my hair has been feeling a bit too dry & it leaves my hair looking so much better next day. Only thing is, hard to come across 🙁 Otherwise, recommended.
