Thank you to Pantene for sponsoring this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
From the moment October starts, I am crazed through the end of the year. It’s not only my busiest time work-wise but, just like everyone else, I am hosting party after party for the holidays. I will be the first to admit that all self-care takes a back seat in these months; free time is spent decorating the house, attending the kids’ shows, buying gifts, you name it. But, of course, I want to look my best as I am hosting soiree after soiree and seeing family and friends, so one thing I am not letting fall by the way-side is my hair routine.
I am the first to admit that over the holidays I totally abuse my hair. While in a usual month, I may straighten my hair a handful of times, during the holidays I am straightening and curling my hair every other day to look fresh for the endless family gatherings. So, when Pantene reached out to me to try their Intense Rescue Shots (a pack with three single-use ampoules of the #1 selling new treatment item across the hair care category), I gave it a go and I am now obsessed. After all, don’t we all need our hair rescued during the winter months when it’s drier and definitely over-styled and over processed?!
Right now, Pantene is telling friends to “Join the #PantenetotheRescue challenge”. Meaning: share your before and after shots with the hashtag #PantenetotheRescue, so here’s a look at mine…
My “before” Shot
Me on a busy fall day in the kitchen. Covered in flour, hair pulled back in a tight bun, frizzy bangs and dead ends always getting in the way. At least my sous chef is the cutest.
My Pantene Products:
Packed with B Vitamins and natural glycerin that targets the damaged areas to give the hair flexibility and resilience, the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots noticeably turned my dry brittle hair into soft shiny hair! All you have to do is apply the contents of one ampoule into your freshly washed hair once a week in place of your normal conditioner. Leave in for 30 seconds, rinse for 30 seconds (be sure not to over rinse) and you’re done! You can pick up your own travel-sized deep conditioning treatment at Walmart!
My “After” Shots
Look at who is party-ready?! I wish you could feel my hair because it is SO SOFT. Everyone on shooting day asked me if I got my hair blown for the shoot and I was so proud to say I had styled it myself!!
I also can’t get over how much my highlights are shining. Also, I totally thought I needed a haircut for my ends, but what I really needed was some TLC!! I am so ready to bring on the holidays (will share the details on this spread soon!!).
