Bring back your summer shine with Pantene

Ah summer holidays. How do I love thee? I don’t necessarily love what you can do to my hair though. Sun, sea and wind can wreak havoc. Thankfully, the Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect collection comes to the rescue. Bring back your summer shine with Pantene The Pro-V Repair and Protect collection is very hydrating. With regular use is prevents cuticle damage which aids in keeping hair’s moisture management barrier intact. This in turn reduces dryness and dullness and leaves hair smooth, soft and shiny. Pantene Pro-V also protects your hair against future damage keeping your hair looking and feeling great all summer long. The Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner has been a staple in our home for ages and both are top notch. My husband is also a huge fan. I reviewed the shampoo and conditioner last year over HERE. The shampoo and conditioner retails for R109.99 for 750ml and R69.99 for 400ml. The Pantene Intensive Moisture Masque is a bargain at only R48.95 and I often use it as a leave-in conditioner when my hair is very dry and needs a little extra TLC. My favourite product in the range is Pantene Gold Deep Moisturizing Soufflé. Oh my, this leave-in treatment is to die for. If you struggle with hair that is dry and damaged, this conditioner is worth its weight in gold. Think soft, smooth, shiny hair. It is only available while stock lasts though, so hurry. Before I beat you to it ;) R74.99 I tried the Pantene 24-hr Frizz Fighter on my gran’s hair a couple of days ago and it did wonders for her...

I did try the shampoo and conditioner, but as I have to use a silver/purple shampoo to preserve my blue grey hair, my little girl’s locks gets treated to all of the AROMAS magic. And when I say magic, I mean it. Her curls have never looked so perfect. The shampoo is extremely gentle, yet it cleanses beautifully. Once rinsed, her hair is left feeling so soft that I can almost skip the conditioner. But if you have curly hair, you...

Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner Review & Giveaway

I have really been putting my poor locks through a lot lately. A couple of months ago I went from blonde to denim  and I have been playing around with quite a few shades of grey ever since. This has resulted in hair that is a bit stressed and overworked. This is where Pantene comes in. They were kind enough to send me a hamper containing the Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to try and I’m loving it. They popped a beautiful gold Tangle Teezer in the parcel too and I’m totally smitten with its utter gorgeousness. But I digress… Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner Review This year, Pantene is launching its newest formulation to restore and maintain hair health from the core. This breakthrough – which is the world’s first to work at the core for stronger, shinier hair – will give women across the region more beautiful hair that can do it all! The new Pantene Pro-V with Histidine, goes deep inside the hair shaft – to the cellular level – to work on the remaining 95% where damaging impurities exist. As the impurities build up over time, hair starts to weaken. Hair feels rough and becomes less manageable, and visibly loses its depth of colour and natural shine. Pantene Pro-V Repair and Protect is designed for damaged, stressed, and overworked hair and aims to restore smoothness, shine and manageability to the hair. And it does just that. The shampoo is super luxurious and creamy and leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth. I prefer SLS free shampoos, this one does...

Introducing Moroccanoil Smooth

Moroccanoil recently introduced their brand new Smooth Collection. As I am more than a little obsessed with Moroccanoil, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. If you’ve never tried any Moroccanoil products and are still not sure if the splurge is worth it, you are welcome to read about my first experience with the brand HERE. I was also unsure at first as there are many cult brands who aren’t necessarily as great as they are made out to be. Moroccanoil definitely does not fall in that category. Oh man, I love this stuff. And yes, the scent is as gorgeous as everyone says. Please Moroccanoil, bring the body and sun ranges to our shores! Back to Smooth… ‘Moroccanoil Smooth Collection formulations are enriched with our proprietary Moroccanoil argan oil-infused blend, potent and ultra-nourishing argan butter, as well as coconut derived fatty acids, which leaves hair soft, shiny and instantly more manageable. Designed for all hair types, the products are free of sulfates, phosphates, parabens, and are also completely color-safe.’         This range is suitable for all hair types and aims to smooth the hair to increase shine and manageability. I received the shampoo and conditioner and I am happy to report that my hair feels amazing. My curls are smooth (read: a lot less frizzy), soft and shaped. I love that after I rinse the conditioner, my hair feels nourished and cared for without a heavy coating (which I find a few smoothing ranges to do). The only negative is that my hair feels ‘hard’ after I shampoo. I don’t really understand why as I know my...

The most recent box was no exception. It sold out in record time. And I’m not just saying that. Even though Retail Box sent me one, I still wanted to order another as the box was that good. But nope, all sold out before I even had a chance. Why did I want more? Have read below and make a note that the box sold for only R190! Introducing the new Schwarzkopf BC Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil hair care range.
