We are approaching the end of October which means we are fully in Halloween festivities! How are you celebrating and what excites you about Halloween? For me, it’s all the candy I get to eat from the stash my kids get from trick-or-treating and getting to play dress up! As a fashion lover, I decided to dress up as a flapper girl. The roaring 20’s gave us a lot of amazing fashion after all! To get right into full character mode, I switched up my hair!
The Challenge: I have never styled my hair this way before, but I was super dedicated to trying this look for Halloween plus I knew it was a perfect way to join the #PantenetotheRescue challenge!. The challenge was to style my hair in a new way and then communicate how I planned to revive my hair post-festivities with the Intense Rescue Shots with photos of my hair after using the product!
The Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are Pantene’s first at-home rescue treatment. It is a treatment imported from Brazil that promises to repair extreme damage to hair in just one use.
It is ideal for color-treated and heat-styled hair of all types. This product ensures more great hair days in between professional treatments.
Quick back story, I recently returned from a trip to Paris & Marrakech so, between the different weather conditions, my hair wasn’t exactly in the best state (it was slightly damaged with noticeable split ends). Add that to sleeking down my natural curls which takes a lot of work /products and I was ready to provide my hair with a little TLC. I absolutely loved how my hair turned out for my flapper girl costume but afterward, I had to give my hair a reset with these Intense Rescue Shots!
What I love about Pantene’s Intense Rescue Shots is that it replaces my conditioner. It was an easy 2-step process to repair my damaged ends. I started with washing my hair using Pantene Gold Series Moisture Boost Shampoo, towel-dried my hair then followed by the application of the shots. The recommended use is one ampoule in exchange for your usual conditioner. However, I have super thick hair, so I needed more than one Rescue Shot. You want to apply it to your hair from root to tip and focus on your problem areas (for me it was the mid to ends of my hair).
I worked the product into my coils using my fingers for 30 seconds and then rinsed it out for 30 seconds. When you try it for yourself, be sure to not over-rinse! What I saw after I rinsed out my hair surprised me. My hair was bouncy and clean, and it looked and felt healthier! It looked so good, that the final shots I am sharing are of my hair without any other products in it.
This is how good my hair looked after I rinsed out the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I was also super impressed that I didn’t have any detangling issues, which saved me 30-45 minutes (since the detangling process takes that long on most of my wash days)! Thanks to these Intense Rescue Shots, Pantene totally eliminated my detangling process which meant a shorter wash day. Celebrating this little victory!
I absolutely recommend that you give Pantene’s Intense Rescue Shots a try if you too are interested in repairing your hair after over-styling. The Intense Rescue Shots are a perfect way to strengthen your hair because it is packed with Pro-Vitamin B5 strengthening lipids and natural glycerin and each shot deliver salon-like hair between professional treatments. Take the #PanteneToTheRescue challenge and let me know what you think. Share your before and after photos on social using #PanteneToTheRescue. You can pick up your own pack of the Intense Rescue Shots at Kroger!
