Thank you, Pantene, for sponsoring this post.
HOLA, mis amores! So happy you’re back here!
So, as you may or may not know, I recently embarked on a natural hair journey and I must say it’s been both incredibly exciting and overwhelming. Pre Covid-19, I used to style my hair almost every day (emphasis on every), mostly because I thought it was the easiest way to manage my hair, but it was actually the easiest way to damage it.
I would spend hours blow-drying and styling until one day I realized that at this point in my life, time was something I should not be wasting - especially when I’m juggling between my MA, my 9/5 job, my blog, and my podcast. So, I decided to take this time to go all-natural, give my hair a break from the hot tools, learn to listen to its needs, and start a new relationship with it.
I should admit that thanks to my Pantene hair products, I’ve been able to maintain my sanity and many good hair days. Believe it or not, my go-to for a quick pick-me-up during these crazy times is the Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. I’ve been using it for a while (read more about it here) and it really helps restore shine on frizzy, tangled hair transforming it into silky smooth hair while delivering 24-hour frizz protection.
But when it’s time to relax and have a moment for myself, I love filling up the tub and playing tranquil music to simply forget about the rest of the world. These moments where I’m fully present are rare but very much necessary for my self-care routine. This is the time I take to deep wash my hair, try face masks, shave, whiten my teeth… I call it my mindful bath.
My favorite part of this routine is washing my hair, it’s truly therapeutic. Pantene’s Nutrient Blends Collection is personally a new favorite because it transports me to a Zen paradise. Its Hair Volume Multiplier with Bamboo Shampoo is free of silicones, parabens, dye, and mineral oil. It also removes dirt and oils and returns hair to my natural fullness and contains Vitamin-B-rich Bamboo extract from bamboo shoots grown in China’s Fujian Province that restores damaged hair. The Bamboo Shampoo and Conditioner truly help me feel lightweight and free of stress.
But no spa treatment is ever quite done without a quick massage. When I’m done bathing and rinsing my hair, I like to apply the Pantene’s Hair Thickness Multiplier Leave-In Treatment to my roots and give my scalp attention with a quick massage. I normally use this when my hair is 80% dry and it’s amazing for thicker-looking hair every day.
