I think we can all collectively agree that wintertime is the worst, especially in NYC with its wild, ever-changing weather patterns and harsh, bleak conditions. Let’s just say winter is more of a foe rather than a friend especially when it comes to our hair. That dry air, those brutally cold temperatures. Ugh. It’s a sad sad day for all hair types. In these conditions, our hair needs a little extra TLC! They say the best defense is a good offense so why not get the best product to combat these dire circumstances. I’ve started to use Pantene Nutrient Blends Pure Clean and Clarify shampoo and conditioner and let me tell ya, my hair feels better than ever!
Throughout the colder months of the year I tend to let my hair (and beard) grow a bit longer than usual. Call it a change up or sheer laziness, but it just makes sense to me to cut it short in the summer and let it grow and do its thing during the colder months. Now here’s my dilemma with that: since my hair is a bit longer I tend to put my pomade and hairspray in there to set it in place and make it look presentable. This leads to my hair looking oily and a bit greasy at times. Pantene’s Pure Clean & Clarify shampoo and conditioner actually helps remove oil and styling build-up and makes my hair feel softer and healthier. The collection is free of fragrances, silicones, parabens, dye, and mineral oil which is rare to see in hair products. I love that the product is fragrance-free because a fragrant product usually includes ingredients that can cause scalp irritation. The shampoo has a blend of pro vitamin B5 and antioxidants and work to purify hair of free radical impurities. The conditioner, having those same vitamins and antioxidants, has absorbable and restoring lipids that replenishes hair with moisture to leave hair refreshed and replenished.
Over the years I have done a full 180 when it comes to my hair health. Admittedly, I used to wash my hair every day. Every. Day. How wild is that? I grew up thinking my hair needed to be cleansed daily but really all I was doing was stripping these lovely locks of all their nutrients and leaving my scalp extra dry and my hair way too greasy for its own good. But now I wash every 4-5 days, which is why it’s so important to have a shampoo that removes build-up. I’ve come a long way and am very meticulous when it comes to picking out the best and safest haircare products. I’m so happy that I discovered this new Nutrient Blends Collection from Pantene. Safe, effective products from a known brand! The collection comes with other shampoo/conditioner options like The Miracle Moisture Boost with Rose Water & The Hydrating Glow with Baobab Essence. All 3 collections offer care for whatever problems your hair is facing this winter and you can find them at Walmart!
