These two leading brand shampoos have been tested by me. Pantene made my hair soft and shiny. The only thing is that, it was not helping my hair to get strong. My hair fall problem continued. Then, I tried Garnier shampoo that says to fight hair fall. I would say, it is what it is. It works on me. My hair fall lessen since I started using Garnier. It also makes my hair soft, shiny and manageable.
