My Hair – My Vanity
Are you anything like me when it comes to hair? Do you find that if you feel good about your hair you are more likely to feel good about everything else about your appearance?
My poor mother (Hi Mum!) can testify to the tears I’ve shed about my hair over the years. It’s thick, hard to “do” and there’s a lot of it.
I get to the hair dresser about twice year and so, in a vain effort to compensate, have been splurging on Salon Shampoo & Conditioner (namely Aveda and Kerastase) for the past few years. Even though it costs $100 it also lasts around 6-8 months so it’s not as much as it sounds and it makes me feel like I’m doing something to look after my hair.
A few weeks ago I received some Pantene in the mail.
If there is one supermarket brand of shampoo I do not buy it’s Pantene. I’ve heard all the tales about how it coats and damages your hair and that Pantene is like the wolf in sheeps clothing of shampoo.
However. I didn’t buy this shampoo, it was sent to me. So that’s different right? Having run out of the Salon Shampoo and being too tight to buy anymore I decided to give it a go.
Oh. My. Goodness.
I am in love. My hair! Oh, my hair! It’s no so much that it feels lovely (though it does) it’s that my hair now does itself. I wash, mousse and maybe do a little rough blow dry and voila!
Those photos may not rock your world but I have done nothing to my hair in either of them aside from get up. I haven’t brushed my hair, I haven’t styled it. Nothing. I just got up. To me, that’s pretty darn fantastic!
And in the name of keeping it real, here’s a photo I took right now – total bed hair, still in my PJ’s having washed my hair last night…
The range I’ve been trying is…
And at about $14 for the set that’s much more friendly for the hip pocket. Of course, I’ve now run out of the shampoo and it’s only been 6weeks or so which means that over 6 months it costs more like $56 which is still half the price of Aveda or Kerastase (though I do think I got almost a year out of the Aveda once so…)
The real win for me has been that I don’t have worry about “doing” my hair. Being time poor,and having spent my whole life trying – unsuccessfully – to figure out how to do my hair, this is HUGE for me (and why I decided to write about it).
What hair products do you use? Have you tried or would you try Pantene?
I received the Pantene and Wella Volume Mousse and a few other items free of charge. I was not asked to write about them, nor was I paid to write this post.
