what-happens-when-you-use-panteneI often find myself trying to explain what happens when you use Pantene hair products. It’s not as bad as it used to be….either less people are using Pantene or more people don’t want to admit that to their hairdresser. It’s okay because if you don’t mention it then no one will tell you what’s going to happen to your hair!

The problem with Pantene Pro-V shampoos and conditioners starts with the cheap, low-quality ingredients. When  things like alcohol and other harsh stripping agents are found in high volumes in your beauty products…they will contain other cheap, low-quality ingredients to cover up the effects of the other ingredients(like drying out your hair, making it more brittle, etc.).

Waxes and silicones(supposedly not as bad as wax) coat your hair a little more every time you use Pantene. At first, you think it looks great because your hair is so shiny and feels soft. With time your hair will start to look dull, become harder to manage & style, lost it shape, etc. That’s caused by the wax build up from using Pantene shampoos & conditioners as well as other products like theirs.

I understand that not everyone can afford professional salon products, so please contact me for alternatives if you’re not sure what to buy. I’m working on a list of professional to drugstore alternatives, so in the meantime check out which products are best for your hair type here.
