Pantene helps hair do winter better – enter and it could be you!
July 25, 2016
When I was asked to do this post for PANTENE I knew whatever product they wanted me to review would be good. This brand’s hair products are so effective, no matter what your hair type – they have you covered. When my sample pack arrived with the PRO-V product range it was obvious my hair was in for a healthy treat. With South Africa being in the heart of a very cold winter, hair tends to stress with the harsh conditions it gets subjected to. Not only does the cold air damage hair, we are unable to leave hair to dry naturally in this weather so we have to blow-dry every time we wash which means it’s subjected to extreme heat. Apart from all that, hair frizzes 10 times more in humidity so of course we reach for the straightening irons to either smooth hair out or curling tongs to make curls and waves look sleek. This in turn weighs hair down three times more than healthy hair so you can understand that these unhealthy hair shafts are unable to withstand the damage brought on by coloring, styling and weather conditions.
Let’s get technical… The Pantene Pro-V formulation of hair products are the first in the world that penetrates the actual hair shaft to start it’s repairing process right at the core, not just at the surface like many hair brands. With this brand superficial beauty is not an option – it’s all or nothing. Healthy hair full of strength and shine is the result of the inclusion of Histadine that reaches hair at cellular level and does it’s magic. It removes impurities in the hair from deep within because these impurities tend to weaken hair over time due to it’s build-up. Out of experience, I know weakened hair feels rough and brittle and is super difficult to style and manage with success. Color does not seem vibrant, your favoritie new hue does not last as long, hair looks dull, lifeless and generally unhappy. With the presence of Histadine in skin (skin has it’s own natural purification process), scientists in the Pantene laboratories noticed that this helps skin get rid of impurities or oxidative minerals. The idea was born that the inclusion of Histadine in their hair products may then also help the hair shaft remove impurities from the core with the help of Histadine. This formula is a heaven sent because in addition it seeks out the impurities, gets rid of it, identifies the healthy parts in the hair and helps it shine with health because there are no impurities present. To make this hair range even more effective, EDDS (Keratin Damage Blocking Technology) helps prevent and repair damage of the hair from the core right through to the surface. Think about it – if hair is healthy, shiny and strong you can do almost anything with it, right? The whole point is that this Pro-V range from Pantene gives you the necessary tools to take back your hair’s health – shiny and strong bits and all. This formula can erase the damage of a 100 blow-dries, stand up to heat of 230 celcius and you can try as many new styles as you can dream of with no damage – sound good? It did to me so I jumped right in.
From the first use I noticed my hair felt stronger. Looked much shinier and there was less hair in my brush after brushing every time. My ends are less likely to split now because the repair this shampoo and conditioner duo has initiated has made the actual shaft stronger. Because I put my hair through much color tests (you’ve all seen my hair) it has been a complete turning point for me the day I started using the Pantene Pro-V Shampoo and Conditioner. Not only does my color last longer, it stays vibrant, my hair feels stronger, looks shinier, hair loss has been made drastically less, split ends are less and I have renewed courage to try more hair styles because I know my hair won’t been damaged – it’s totally protected so I can #ShineStrong ! The shampoo and conditioner formulas were lightweight to use but where the shampoo developed a fantastic lather so you really felt you were cleansing your hair effectively yet gently, the conditioner had a soft nourishingly creamy feel to it. After the first use I could feel a definite difference.
In today’s life where good hair is 90% responsible for a good selfie, using Pantene Pro-V will help hair withstand drying heat from heathers indoor as well as hot styling tools and harsh cold air from the winter climate. Hair will withstand frizz and flops and your hair will be able to #ShineStrong and ‘do winter’ without breaking a sweat!
