Problem: Frequent flat ironing with over-400-degree heat has left my ends dry and frizzy.
Solution: Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, an affordable single-use treatment that repairs damaged hair in just 60 seconds.
The last time I purchased a beauty product I really liked for under $5, it was caked in blindingly chunky glitter and nauseatingly smelled like sweet cotton candy. I was also 12.
So when I found Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, a highly rated under-$5 hair product that claims to quickly repair split ends and heal heat damage, I was sold — but slightly skeptical.
Pantene has dubbed these unique single-use shots their “most potent repair product yet,” which instantly made me raise a single brow in suspicion. But as I kept reading, I found that each shot is impressively fortified with hydrating vitamin B-5, strengthening lipids, and natural glycerin for resilience to styling and environmental stresses. Could it really make years of self-inflicted hair damage disappear with just one use?
I put aside my skepticism and hopped into the shower. After washing my hair per usual with my preferred products, I applied the contents of the ampoule — a generous half-ounce of product — and lathered up with some body wash while I let the treatment do its thing. Unlike a traditional hair mask that needs to sit for several minutes, it only takes a quick 60 seconds for a shot to transform your tresses. By the time I was done scrubbing, it was ready to rinse out.

The result: My previously fried and frazzled strands instantly felt softer, looked shinier, and bounced higher than they ever had before. For years, I’d been using hair masks during my twice-a-week wash seshes, but this shot was a serious upgrade. It deeply nourished my hair, taking its texture and sheen to a whole new level of healthy.
Since then, I’ve made these potent little ampoules a part of my weekly mane maintenance, and have noticed a significant difference in the overall strength of my hair, with far less breakage and fewer split ends. I also find that I’m able to ease up on products like hair oils and frizz creams, which I previously relied on to keep my strands soft and sleek.
Every box conveniently contains three single-use ampoules, which at approximately $1.65 a piece, is significantly more affordable than most treatments on the market. So if you’re at all curious about how Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots will work on your hair, their temptingly low price point makes them perfect for an impulsive experiment.
