Put to the test: Pantene 3 Minute Miracle
Since it launched a few months ago, more than 25 million bottles of Pantene 3 Minute Miracle have been sold in the US, so when we heard it was launching in the UK, we knew we had to give it a go.
The much-hyped conditioner claims to be as intensive as a weekly hair treatment mask, repairing up to three months worth of damage in just three minutes and at £3.99, it's a bargain to boot.
But does it deliver? We enlisted three guinea pigs to find out.
1. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Colour Protect
"Pantene's new 3 Minute Miracle is a lovely, intensive conditioner. It left my hair feeling gorgeously soft and my colour looked beautifully shiny the day I used it as well. I'm not sure about repairing three months of damage in three minutes but it's definitely a great moisture-boosting hair treatment."
2. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Smooth & Sleek
"I don't tend to put on hair masks very often, so my hair did feel noticeably smoother and sleeker after I used 3 Minute Miracle. That said, I don't think three months of damage had been repaired. This is a very good conditioner for the price."
3. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Volume & Body
"The product left my colour-treated hair feeling silky, shiny and in better overall condition than usual. While it didn't weigh down my hair, there wasn't a huge improvement in volume sadly. But I will definitely continue to use it for the long-lasting softness it gave my hair."
4. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Repair & Protect
"I smoothed over this intensive conditioner, which felt super-hydrating, massaging it through to the ends. After three minutes, I washed it out, expecting to feel it still coating my hair, but there was no such feeling. My locks do feel noticeably softer afterwards and the straw ends have been tamed, but it's still frizzy enough for me to need some leave-in conditioner.
