Pantene Age Defy Thickening Treatment

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $18.99

THE SKINNY: Can your hair look old? That's what Pantene wants you to think with the new Age Defy line of products.

Pantene says this product is for anyone with damaged or "fragile" hair: "Thickens existing hair so it's like you have up to 6,500 more hair strands.
Your hair looks more beautiful on you than it does in your brush. This potent formula of Vitamin B3, Panthenol, and caffeine helps thicken existing hair strands and provides strength against breakage."

So I tried it. (Even though I insist that I am not "aged" in any way.)

And after a week, my hair actually did seem thicker and fuller. You just spritz on 15 -- not sure why the number is relevant -- pumps each day on wet hair, then style.

It worked well to hold my style and did not weight hair down in any way. I did though notice a lot of static in my hair when I used it; that could be the cooler air, but Age Defy did nothing to combat it.

I'll use the bottle, but I am not sure if I would buy more.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: You can find Pantene Age Defy at mass market retailers and online.
