Last year I did the Big Chop. It was amazing, invigorating, and life-changing to embrace my natural hair. But trust and believe it has been a JOURNEY as I learned to take care of my own beautiful, natural hair! Since my big chop, I have spent many ducats (read: hundreds of dollars) on products for my hair in the form of monthly subscriptions boxes, trips to my local drugstore, and online finds. Some were off the mark entirely and I am always looking to add amazing products to my hair “arsenal”. Cue: Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural!
African American women with natural hair can have a tight curl pattern, making it difficult for the scalp’s natural sebum to moisturize the hair. It can also be prone to tangling and dryness. Finding the right products can be challenging. Pantene, the world’s #1 hair care brand, has launched two new collections for African-American women with either natural or relaxed hair – Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural and Pantene Pro-V Truly Relaxed. I received the Natural collection. Each collection features ingredients specially chosen for your unique hair needs, so whether you prefer your locks to be relaxed or you’re rocking the natural look, you can feel confident that you’re going to have a great hair day!
This is a BEFORE picture of my hair post-workout. Today, I did a two mile run outside and a half hour of 12 Rounds Boxing Boot Camp. My hair was sweaty, wind-blown, and looking a hot mess. A wash was definitely in order for The Get Fit Diva! The products I used for the AFTER picture were:
- Pantene Truly Natural Clarifying Shampoo
- Pantene Truly Natural Deep Conditioner
- Pantene Truly Natural Defining Curls Styling Custard
- Pantene Truly Natural Shine Serum with Argan Oil
How do you think it turned out?
I loved the smell of all of the products. Subtle and not overwhelming. Hair is shiny, soft, and smooth and protected. Best of all NO knotted ends and I was able to detangle easily. Win-win-win-win. Yes, I LURVED the Pantene products and I am so excited that I can provide my readers with an awesome chance to win one Pantene Pro-V Collection of the winner’s choice (either Truly Relaxed or Truly Natural)! MSRP of the prize is $20 for the Truly Relaxed Collection (4 products) and $25 for the Truly Natural Collection (5 products). The winner has 24 hours to respond with shipping information and what collection they would like. The giveaway ends on June 15th, 2013 (which is my birthday! Woo!).
Don’t fret! If you can’t wait for the giveaway to end, you can cop your own! Shampoo and conditioner in both collections is affordably priced at $4.99.
