Great for fine hair
It’s fantastic that Pantene have come out with a clarifying range of haircare. Thanks to my fine hair I use an extensive variety of volumising products and need something that will make it squeaky clean but not weigh it down. I like using products that are not full of nasties.
The packaging is no different to the standard Pantene range. I don’t love how the bottle is made to stand on its head as I think the opening can get dirty easier. However I like it at the end of the bottle as it makes sure all the product can be used.
The scent is the generic Pantene smell and doesn’t last throughout the day. It left my hair feeling smooth, shiny and hydrated without weighing it down. Like many other beauties, I too found my hair air dried better than normal, leaving my hair bouncy and semi-styled.
I would recommend this product for fine hair or if you are interested in trying a clarifying product. While using this conditioner I was able to stretch the time between uses (without using dry shampoo) to three days! It left my hair feeling healthy, nourished and like I was able to do the Pantene flick.

As other reviewers said, this is good for air-drying hair. It doesn't weigh my super-fine hair down, and it's a fairly reasonable price. I also don't blow-dry regularly, so I'm not really worried about damage.
Don't blow-dry with this. Easier said than done.
Fine hair that doesn't get blow-dried regularly.

I used this in conjunction with the Aqua light shampoo and it was ok except for the fact that it contained silicones. They advertised it as being silicone free and then you read the fine print and realise that it is not. As a conditioner itself it wasn't as hydrating and heavy as others but I didn't like the fact that they were doing this sneaky type of advertising. Suggesting that it didn't have any silicone or parabens. I normally use a natural or organic conditioner because it doesn't leave any residue and is healthier for my scalp.

Perfect for airdrying
I didn't like this the first time I used it, while I was blowdrying my hair kept getting tangled up constantly.
But I found it really good for when I'm air drying my hair, it doesn't weigh my hair down and although it still tangles my hair I have no issues quickly brushing it out once it's dry.

Not for My Hair
I have really frizzy, curly hair, which I get permanently straightened periodically. Because of the straightening, it lacks volume.
I was given this product as a sample and thought to myself, wow this is going to be great, I am going to look like one of those girls with the perfect hair in the commercials. Well....its safe to say I was wrong.
I used the shampoo first and immediately felt my hair was really tangled and dry. I applied the conditioner thereafter in the hop it will fix it, but sadly it didn't.
I was left with a tangled mass of hair on my head that shot out in all directions. Now don't get me wrong, it is a good product, just not for me. I had a second set of samples given to me, which I passed on to my sister, who has pin straight super soft shiny hair and she loved it. Safe to say....she did look like she walked out of a TV commercial

I have been really impressed by this conditioner. It is really affordable and smells lovely. It is easy to apply.
Before using this product, I had been using products targeted for dry and damaged hair. I was initially worried that this product wouldn't be hydrating enough - but I was wrong! This is actually really great for my fine hair. It adds enough hydration to leave my hair feeling soft, healthy and tangle free. But it doesn't weigh my hair down like some other 'heavier' conditioners.
I will continue to use this conditioner as I have been really thrilled with the results.

Read the fine print!
What they claim: Pantene has perfected the science of hair conditioning, with new Aqua Light. Unlike conventional, creamy conditioners, the new formula delivers just the right amount of hair nourishment without weighing it down and leaving it looking heavy. Aqua Light conditioner’s breakthrough Clean Rinse technology is highly water soluble and rinses off fast, leaving hair with no residue and no weight. Notice the difference in your hair after just one use. Nourishes hair without leaving heavy residue. Hair is beautifully conditioned, healthy and lifted. Features Clean Rinse technology to rinse hair fast, leaving it feeling fresh, clean and lightweight.
Immediate thoughts on viewing the product: I was really excited about the shampoo and conditioner as they were released with the bold advertising of "no added silicone*, dye and parabens". Note the little "*" I've included, which led to the fine print which read "shampoo only". Oh that fine print! I do not purport myself to be a greenie however I do what I can, and I get excited when I see large corporations making changes, such as popular brands. That fine print hurts my heart.
My take on application: It is a very lightweight conditioner. The shampoo is a great preparatory product, and the conditioner doesn't quite meet the same expectations one would have after using the shampoo of the same line. It's almost too lightweight, adding very little moisture (you almost want to double up if that would ever work).
I personally would not buy this conditioner again (however the shampoo is something worth considering). Otherwise you can use this as an alternative to shaving cream (for legs).
Perfect for oily hair or those with irritated scalps that need very little in the way of conditioning.

I received this as a sample and ended up buying the full size as it was really good. I have really dry ends, yet my hair is quite fine so its hard to find the balance of a conditioner that will leave my hair feeling silky soft yet not weighed down and this one was great.

A Good Conditioner
I received a sample of this, along with the shampoo, and have only used them both once. I do like it, however as I have very thick hair I just felt it didn't do enough for me and had to use quite a bit of the conditioner as compared to the amount I would use with my regular products. My hair did feel lighter as the day went on, but by the next day it wasn't. I generally only wash my hair a couple of times a week as it's soo thick and takes forever to dry, so I don't think this is the right product for me. It's not bad, but just not up my alley.
Perhaps people with normal hair, not thick hair.

Good for a supermarket brand
I received these as part of my beauty box subscriptions. Initially I was disappointed because so many people have told me to stay away from Pantene. However, I gave it a shot, and I'm quite pleased with them.
I used the shampoo as well as the conditioner, and it have to say my hair was lovely and light after the first use. It dried beautifully, and my blow wave seemed to sit better for the rest of the day.
Both products are pleasantly scented, and even though I'm sure I applied more product than I needed to, my hair wasn't limp or greasy looking. The conditioner washed out easily, and my hair didn't feel as 'dry' as it normally does until I put finishing product on.
But, I did only receive a 40 ml sample, which lasted about a week. I would be interested to see the results after a month and if my hair improved/deteriorated much more. Initial results are good though.
Follow the directions and don't clump it in one place when you apply.
