Having long curly hair is part of my signature look. If you go through my blog photos, you’ll find 98 percent of the time my hair will be down, unless I’m doing a fitness post. Being on TV, I style and put products in my hair on a daily basis. Sometimes, I do it twice in one day! My hair-care routine consists of washing it once a week and then using a hair mask. This took years of training but it was worth it because my hair would get dry after washing multiple times.
You may have seen Selena Gomez and Priyanka Chopra in Pantene Pro-V’s ads with ever so shiny and glossy hair. It made me wonder if the brand had something more to offer. Not to mention, when a shampoo has close to 600 reviews and almost 5 stars, you try it. So I revisited an old favorite, yet this time it has a completely new formula, the Smooth & Sleek Shampoo with its matching conditioner and added it to my hair-care routine. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and one of the things I really enjoy is how well it lathers up. It has a very creamy, luxurious texture and does a good job of detangling my hair, even before conditioner goes on! While most shampoos only cleanse the surface of hair, Pantene’s new shampoos penetrate into the core. Nourishing lipids and antioxidants replenish your hair’s lost moisture, which is why you can wash it every day.
I will be honest, I do not have the time to wash my hair every day. Between working long hours as a reporter and being a blogger, I really have to prioritize. However, I did notice washing every other day with Pantene did not leave my hair dry. Instead, my hair comes out looking smooth and shiny. This is great since I can get all the sweat and gunk out of my hair after cardio days! Overall, I really love how my hair is shinier and most importantly, smoother than before. I noticeably have fewer flyaways, which means I can use less hairspray. Now, when I go in to curl my hair, it’s an easier process. Also, I know my shampoo and conditioner are really working to keep my hair full of good antioxidants and lipids.
