I haven't seen that before but I'd try it....I bet I won't be able to find it in Toronto though.
Every company has products for naturals now.

I haven't seen it yet though.

I didn't like the Garnier Pure Clean conditioner. They only have a normal hair formula. I wish they had a dry hair formula that is more moisturizing.

Looks like they separated the Relaxed and Natural into 2 lines. It's like a low poo and I'm quite sure the ingredients aren't Natural. It's just marketed towards natural hair.

On a side note, for YEARS, people have told me that pantene is one of the worst things to use for hair (any type). Do you all think this is true? I have avoided pantene through my natural journey, but if its not that bad I would like to try it.

I probably wouldn't ever try it because I just never found anything by Pantene that I ever liked, even before I went modified CG.

This makes me suspect they took the same products from R&N and put it in two different packaging bottles and telling us it is something new. I would like to compare the shampoo and conditioner ingredients for Truly Natural and Truly Relaxed and see if they are Truly The Same and if Pantene is trying to play us as Truly Stupid.

I found the ingredients for the deep conditioner I doubt it's much different from the Cowash:
Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Bis Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium ETDA, Pathenol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Jojoba Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Methylchloroisothaizolinone, Methylisothaizolinone

I went on Pantenes website and I'm sure they have silicones the "truly natural" shampoo is a clarifying shampoo

Black Hair Care | Pantene

And I didn't understand why they have clarifying shampoo for natural and then moisturizing and light shampoos for relaxed? Most people I think use both depending on how clean they need their hair and amount of buildup. And do relaxed people not need to dc? Strange. Seems like they they took the one product line and did a King Solmon baby split. said this for you and this for you. For example, going strictly by this there is nothing to serve as a li for a natural since the hairdress is over on the relaxed side. although I'm sure a natural could use it. IMO there is no benefit to splitting the line other than make us naturals feel like speshalsnowflakes.

Because of the silicones and my personal feelings about black ethic hair care marketing I'm going to pass on this. BTW I have white friends who love Relaxed and Natural. I'll stick to Tresemme and SM and companies that target to me because my hair is dry and curly and not because I'm black. I do want to hear reviews though because I'm nosey.

For future comparison these are the ingredients for the old R& Natural Mask

water, stearly alchohol, amdimethicone, behentrimonium choride, cety alcohol, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, panthenol, pathenyl ethyl ether, fragrance, lysine hcl, methyl tyrosinate hcl, histidine, benzyl alcohol, disodium edta, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, sodium hydroxide

R&N Intense moisturizing conditioner

Water , Stearyl Alcohol , Dimethicone , Behentrimonium Chloride , Cetyl Alcohol , Coconut Oil- Cocos Nucifera , Jojoba Seed Oil- Simmondsia Chinensis , Fragrance , Panthenyl Ethyl Ether , Panthenol , Lysine HCl , Methyl Tyrosinate HCl , Histidine , Disodium EDTA , Sodium Hydroxide , Methylchloroisothiazolinone , Methylisothiazolinone , Benzyl Alcohol

R&N Shampoo
Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Glycol Distearate, Dimethicone, Citric Acid, Laureth 4, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Xylene Sulfonate, Fragrance, Sodium Benzoate, Polyquaternium 6, Tetrasodium EDTA, Panthenol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (Jojoba), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut), Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone

Personally I've never been bothered by that kind of marketing.

I take it more as people with x racial background are likely to have similar hair. This product is targeted towards y hair. There is a logic to that that doesn't seem odd to me in the least. Unless a company came out and explicity stated that a product was ONLY for a certain group and no one else could use it or that group couldn't use any of their other products would I be bothered by it.

I might just email them to find out the ingredients. I am curious now.

I thought at first Truly Natural was about truly natural ingredients but now I've lost interest. Meh. Not knocking anyone. just my opinion.

Personally I find sun screen marketing to be more absurd, yet I still get the idea. We all burn and need protection from the sun, but fair skin white people have the highest rates of skin cancer and it's even higher among people who freckle.

I tend to look at numbers and reasoning, before I jump to any sort of feelings. Just the way my brain works. As far as natural...since it started with relaxed and natural I've always assumed natural referred to the state of the hair and not the ingredients in the product. I don't think Pantene has ever aspired to be an eco brand.

I rarely buy wonder products in the black section. I have fine hair and I used to use Pantene for fine hair. Most ethinic stuff I can't use without my hair feeling greasy coated to the point where I have to wash it out. I'm not sure who told who "black folks hair loves some mineral oil/petrolatum."

BTW i have freckles. My whole family does. I used to hate them but now I love my freckles.
