Pantene Pro V Lively Clean Shampoo Review

Hey everyone,

I am very picky about the products I use on my hair. Hence, I tend to buy smaller bottles possible to see how the products fared on me. Let’s start with the review of the Pantene Pro V Lively clean  shampoo.

In my last article on The Nature’s Co Cocoa body scrub, I discussed about the pros and cons of the body scrub. Do give a read.

The shampoo comes in a white transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap. The packaging is old  and nothing interesting. The cap is tightly closed thereby making it travel friendly. The ingredient list and other details are mentioned on the back of the bottle.


It is gel like in  consistency and is transparent.

My experience with Pantene Pro V Lively Clean shampoo review

I have the habit of oiling my scalp before every wash and washing it off the next day. Some shampoos don’t remove the oil in one wash, leaving it partly oily and partly clean. Pantene Pro V Lively Clean is different from other shampoos. The name itself is catchy. It cleans my oily scalp easily in one wash, which was amazing. Less quantity is required as the shampoo lathers well because of the presence of sodium products.

Having said about the great cleaning action, the shampoo lives up to some of the claims. It just removes the oil and dirt from the hair. The shampoo did make my hair dry after frequent washes. It provides shine only for a day and after that it’s all dull hair. This happened with me so I am not sure if it will behave exactly the same for your hair too.

The fragrance is mild and won’t be a problem for sensitive noses. The shampoo is loaded with loads of chemicals which nowadays is common for most unlike herbal ones. There was no drastic change in my usual hairfall problem.


I would rate it 2.5/5.

Would I recommend Pantene Pro V Lively Clean Shampoo?

I won’t  buy this shampoo again.
