Like it or not, you and your hair share a history. You’ve been through thick and thin, and if there’s one thing you can honestly say, it’s that your locks have let you down on more than one occasion. It may have been due to shoddy shampoos, haircut horror stories that still make your eye twitch, or that time you went bleach blond in college. Except given all your tress trials and tribulations, in time, you arrive at an “aha” moment where you finally know what works and what doesn’t. You’re in control. You’ve got the power to make your mane work. Today, three bloggers are sharing those success stories. Because everyone’s had a bad hair day, but a great one? That’s something to talk about.
From experimenting with hair colour in your twenties to the mane upkeep as a mum in your forties, scroll down to see how this trio combs through their busy schedules to make time for a great hair day with the premium products from Pantene's Expert Dry Defy and Fade Defy Collections.
“Since I’m in my 20s, I’ve had a lot of time to experiment with my hair color, and I’ve found what exactly works best with my skin tone. A couple of days before my hair appointment, I like to incorporate Pantene Expert Fade Defy Vibrant Color Shampoo and Conditioner into my beauty routine, and it helps keep my hair healthy and vibrant before, during, and after my color process."
“In between appointments, I like to use Pantene’s Fade Defy Color Magnifying Gloss, and you can use one to two pumps on wet or dry hair."
“It helps to seal the cuticle and keep your hair color locked in, bright, and vibrant until your next color appointment.”
“As an actress, TV host, and style blogger who’s also married with three pets, I am always a busy lady. Having a good hair day is an everyday necessity but one that can’t take a lot of time to accomplish. I’ve always had super-dry hair, and living in LA’s super-dry climate doesn’t help. Plus, between acting gigs, hosting shoots, and blog events, my hair is constantly getting blown out and flat-ironed, which is no bueno!"
“To tackle my thirsty locks, I’ve been using Pantene Expert Dry Defy Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, which help prevent dryness, frizz, breakage, and dullness without weighing down my hair. They’re a godsend!"
“For a sleek updo (topknots are my favorite), I use Pantene Expert Dry Defy Velvet Infusion Crème, a leave-on serum that adds moisture and shine, plus my soft-bristle brush to tie my hair up and wrap it in a bun."
“Add a bold lip color, and I’m done. Some have called this my signature look, which I love.”
“Now that I’m in my 40s, a lot of things have changed in life, but one thing has stayed the same: I feel like the best version of myself when I take care of my hair."
"As a mom, I’ll tell you, when you give birth, there are a number of issues you expect to contend with: baby weight, sleepless nights…but a loss of hair at your temples? No, I was most certainly not prepared for that. In spite of multiple assurances that this was only temporary, 10 years later I can assure you that it was not."
“My days start at 7 a.m. sharp, and sometimes I don’t get home till past midnight, where I literally crash into bed. So I always sleep on silk pillowcases. Why silk? Because the fibers are so fine that it doesn’t roughen up your hair follicles, so you wake up with semi-decent bed head instead of crazy bed head. "
“The last thing I do every night is take a biotin. One pill a day, and your hair will grow thick, shiny, and really fast. So do your nails and lashes, and who can’t use more lashes, right?”
