BEST OF BEAUTY AISLE: BEST HAIR PRODUCTS . Now that winter is gone for good, it’s the perfect time to update your beauty routine! I recently teamed up with P&G to pick a few of my favorite hair products for “Best of the Beauty Aisle, a beauty awards focused on your favorites from our choices of accessible finds for the everyday girl as she revamps her spring beauty routine. There’s four categories – Hair, Skin, Body Basics, and Makeups, and I’m judging the Hair category. Since going blond and blonder, I’ve been pretty experimental with different types of hair products – my hair needs all the help it can get! Plus, rotating your hair products is especially good because repeatedly using the same product can cause build-up of residue which can weigh down and flatten your hair.
I’m more of a conditioner girl, and especially love hair treatments – I actually prefer and use conditioner treatments as my regular conditioner. I also started using after-shower oils after dying my hair to blond. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been trying a variety of shampoos, conditioners, and different types of treatment for my hair so I could share with you my personal favorites – fyi, it was my first time trying each product.
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER: my favorite was the Pantene Expert Collection Pro-V AgeDefy Shampoo, it’s thick, gentle and has a nice smell. It’s purpose is to AgeDefy, but hey, you’re never to young to begin using product that’s going to help with spit ends and breakage! I use about a two quarter size amount – I have thick hair! add some water and then massage for about a minute. I like how it lathers evenly and well. My favorite conditioner was the matching Pantene Expert Collection Pro-V AgeDefy Conditioner – love how it leaves my hair super soft and hydrated. Also, I always leave in my conditioners for more than two minutes. I used these two products for a week and my color, blow dry, and heat iron treated hair loved it.
TREATMENT: my favorite thing is hair treatment! I couldn’t pick one because I’m in love with both these products and use them even today. First, the Pantene Expert Collection Keratin Repair, these 60 second therapy ampoules are amazing. I thought one ampoule would be too little for my hair, but they’re thick and potent – the perfect hair-pick-me-up that can be used once a week. My other favorite treatment is the Pantene Expert Collection Keragloss Oil Mist – for blonds you NEED to have an after shower oil routine. The Keragloss added more shine to my blond color and I like how it’s infused with five different oils to protect your hair. After showering I spray a little on my damp hair then spray a little more or as needed to my dry hair!
I didn’t realize that all my favorite hair products were from the Pantene Expert Collection, it might have actually worked better because they were from the same hair line. As seasons change, so should your regimen … Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to renew and recharge with some new hair products!
