So, Walmart was out of my beloved Pantene Relaxed and Natural Deep Conditioning Mask and instead of panicking, like I usually do, I purchased the Replenishing Mask instead.

I didn’t really know what to expect- the ingredients are definitely different…the R&N line has oils and amodimethicone, while the Replenishing Mask has dimethicone and no oils. The fragrance is identical and the quality of slip is just about the same (R&N has a little more…probably because of the oils). As you know, it’s all about the slip for me!

Moral of the story- if you can’t find the magical brown tub from the R&N line (which many stores don’t carry), the Replenishing Mask is a great second choice! Plus, it’s cheaper and more widely available. Give it a try and let me know what you think!!!
