6 Weeks with Pantene Platinum Color Lock #PanteneAtSams

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of SheSpeaks for Pantene Platinum at Sam’s Club. All thoughts and opinions are those of my own and were not influenced in any way.


You might remember my post from 4/27 about my 6 week trial with Pantene, and I’ve finally completed it. (You can view my beginning post here.) I was challenged to wash and condition my color-treated hair with Pantene’s Platinum Color Lock System for six weeks straight. Then I was instructed to snap photos of my hair before and after the six week trial period, preferably in the same place with the same lighting, which we’ll get to shortly.

Obviously in those 6 weeks my hair has grown out, as I can now see my highlights need to be redone, but the color of them is just as good. The Pantene Platinum Color Lock System really works great and it smells fabulous to boot. Nothing like a little aromatherapy in the mornings right? My favorite is that they are big bottles (40oz.) of it with the pump feature. It’s easy to pump out your shampoo and conditioner in the shower without having to squeeze your bottles or wait impatiently for it to come out. As a mom to two girls, showers need to be quick, and the pump bottles that are available at Sam’s Club is a great feature and a time saver!

So back to the results of the Pantene Platinum Color Lock System 6 week challenge. It claimed to keep my hair color vibrant and the same as it was 6 weeks ago. Of course I was skeptical, who wouldn’t be? Every time I color or highlight my hair it always seems to fade, and fast. I do know Pantene products never let me down though, so the fact that it was Pantene was obviously reassuring.

Also, my hair doesn’t hold the pigmentation of dyes very well, so I definitely expected to see SOME color change. It’s just the way my hair is.


Now I know what you’re thinking, look at the difference, BUT what is actually different is the color isn’t so ashy! THIS is great, and that’s what usually leaves my hair after coloring. The lighting is a bit different too, since the original pic was taken outside, but it’s been raining ALL week, so I couldn’t get a pic outside. The difference is really the ashiness (I don’t think that’s a word), so it doesn’t have that “grey” tone to it. Other than that, the color has stayed the complete same.  (You can tell the difference of the color difference as my eyes are green, and you can’t really see that too much in the first pic.)

I will definitely say I’m very impressed with the product and will continue using it after my next coloring session too. I highly recommend trying it out yourself!

Here’s a little more about the product:

  • Pantene Platinum Color Lock is a new shampoo and conditioner system available at Sam’s Club.
  • It helps you lock in your look longer, giving you salon-quality color protection.
  • With Nutri-Lock technology, this system works from the hair’s core to help provide color protection for up to six weeks (shampoo and conditioner system vs. non-conditioning shampoo).
  • Together, this shampoo and conditioner help fight color fade as well as the $40 leading professional brands, based on Kline sales data.
  • Color-treating hair leaves it weak and prone to damage, but the antioxidants in this system work from the hair’s core to help protect against fade-causing damage and protect color, all while providing a soft, radiant shine.
  • Platinum Color Lock shampoo and conditioner may be used every day.
  • At Sam’s Club, each product is available in a 40 fl. oz. pump bottle.

Stop by your local Sam’s Club and pick up the huge 40 oz pump dispenser bottles next time you’re out!

    1. I am just about to colour my hair, and 2. Nothing smells better than Pantene!!! I will have to get the Colour Lock!!!

  2. Lisa Coomer Queen says:

    I love Pantene. I will have to try this product of theirs. Thanks!

  3. I don’t color my hair but sometimes use a conditioner for colored hair because I find it to be richer and makes my hair softer.I have always liked Pantene products.

  4. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    It looks like you had great results with this product. I will have to give it a try for my hair. Thank you for sharing

  5. Sandy Cain says:

    I have to check this out! You’re right – not ashy at all, it really holds the color in well. Pantene has never let me down in the past. It’s great when a “drugstore brand” performs as well (or better!) than very high-priced brands!

  6. M.Clark says:

    I’m glad that the Pantene Platinum Color Lock System worked for you. I think in the future if your going to do before and after photos you need to use the same lighting. If you don’t use the same lighting then you cannot use the two photos to make a valid comparison.

  7. I am going to go ahead and try this six week challenge out. Thanks for the support, this is something I need to do.

  8. Thanks for the Fantastic Review on 6 Weeks with Pantene Platinum Color Lock #PanteneAtSams! My hair is colored as well and I use a salon shampoo for color treated hair. I’m just wondering how much a 40oz pump shampoo and conditioner does cost at Sam’s. My stylist is also my friend and she gives me the store price on the shampoo’s etc. I do, however, need a really good conditioner for colored hair! Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review, the pictures, and your personal and professional opinions on 6 Weeks with Pantene Platinum Color Lock #PanteneAtSams with all of us! I’ll have to check out Pantene and see! Thanks again, and you know that I always enjoy your reviews! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

    The color lock Pantene does seem to work and I would be glad to get rid of any “ashy ” tone to my hair too. I find that too many hair colors either have that “ashy” tone or make your hair redder than you want.

  10. Edna Williams says:

    I love Pantene! It has worked for me! Thanks for the review!

  11. This sounds great. I love that it smells so nice and comes in such big bottles. Thank you so much for sharing this product
