Strong is Beautiful

The hair envy is real every time I see the Selena Gomez’ Pantene commercial where she’s tousling her hair back and it’s shiny and perfect! Since 1945 Pantene has been studying hair and committed to developing products for all different unique hair types with one goal in mind: healthy, beautiful hair. The brand is all about helping women around the globe be strong and shine both inside and out, which is so evident in their choice of spokespersons. Did you hear they just tapped Ronda Rousey as their new brand ambassador?

Since going bleach blonde, I need some extra help these days in getting these strands healthy, so I’ve been using the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Miracle Repairing Shampoo and Protecting Conditioner. Formulated with their iconic Pro-V nutrients, which is in all of their shampoos and conditioners, this helps prevent and repair the signs of damage, to restore health and shine. The Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect collection includes concentrated moisturizers and conditioners that help reduce hair friction and tangles while smoothing the hair to provide damage protection.

I have thin hair, but a lot of it so it looks thick and my roots get oily, while the rest is dry/damaged from all the color. The Repair & Protect Shampoo has a rich lather and cleaned my roots without stripping my color or all the oils in my hair, while the conditioner smoothed it out. My hair is so overly processed I need a moisturizing shampoo and deep conditioner with every wash. It’s usually impossible for me to be able to weave my hands through my hair in the shower without hitting a knot but the conditioner from this line is so hydrating and nourishing, my hand goes right through. A few areas in the back sometimes need some extra help getting the tangles out. When that happens I just added some more conditioner as I would a deep conditioning treatment and leave it on for 20 seconds massaging it in, and miraculously it detangles.

The Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Collection can help repair up to six months of damage in one use and provide continued round-the-clock protection. It’s designed with concentrated moisturizers and conditioners to help reduce hair friction and tangles while smoothing the hair to provide damage protection. It’s definitely the collection for me since reducing damage and making my hair smoother and healthier is my number one priority. I’m not ready to take these strands down a dead end.

When my hair looks great, I feel great. And I don’t always have time to style it so if a shampoo and conditioner can make my hair look full and healthy without a heat process, that’s the best! And then maybe some flexible hairspray to help hold it in place. The Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner made my hair so clean, fluffy and soft with loads of volume. In these photos I have no additional styling products in my hair, just the shampoo and conditioner, fresh out of the shower.I do also usually use the Pantene Pro-V Airspray Flexible Hold Hairspray when leaving my hair natural. It’s probably my favorite Pantene product and the hairspray I use the most. Some of you may remember I was at the launch party for this product and was blown away since it is the first non-alcohol hairspray on the market. Alcohol dries out your hair so having an alternative was such a breakthrough! It’s the only hairspray I use regularly because I can’t afford the damage of an alcohol version on a regular bases.

Pantene’s commitment to innovation and women to create quality products at affordable prices has always set them apart. The Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Collection and more Pantene Pro-V Hair Care products are available on Amazon. Having your hair products shipped to your home is a huge time-saver!
