Last week, I took a quick trip to Toronto to learn about the new Pantene Expert collections. These new, innovative formulas from the well-known hair care company are based on years of scientific research (the science major in me got giddy listening to the scientific explanations for how the products work) and are design to address two specific concerns; aging hair and damaged hair.
Everywhere you look in a department store are drugstore, you’ll see anti-aging creams, serums and potions to make our skin look, act and feel younger. Pantene has taken that concept to hair- which exhibits signs of aging just like our skin (and these symptoms go beyond greying and thinning)! Breakage, split ends, frizz, unruly greys, lacklustre color and dryness also can be sign with aging hair, and Pantene created the Age Defy line to address these concerns. The products work to thicken hair by increasing the diameter of each strand- making it look and feel as if you have up to 6500 more hair strands. The line adds fullness instantly, but after one month, hair reaches its optimal strength to become less brittle and more manageable too.
The products include…
- Shampoo: A daily shampoo fighting the 7 signs of aging hair; gentle enough for colour-treated hair too.
- Conditioner: A daily conditioner fighting the 7 signs of aging hair; gentle enough for colour-treated hair too.
- Advanced Thickening Treatment: Creates volume by thickening existing hair fibers and strengthens hair over time. (A new must-have in my daily hair routine)
- Rejuvenating Hydration Masque: Restores hydration levels to provide resilience against breakage.
Advanced+ Keratin Repair
Keratin is a form of protein that makes up over 80% of your hair. When you damage your hair through things like brushing, colouring and heat-styling, you lose essential keratin which can lead to rough, coarse hair. For those of you who style your hair every day by blow drying, flat ironing or curling… you probably know what I’m talking about! Pantene’s Advanced+ Keratin Repair Collection was designed to not only restore smoothness, but help prevent further damage at the keratin level. Repairing up to 2 years of damage in just 2 minutes, the line is design to fight split ends, frizz, dullness and dryness.
The products include…
- Shampoo: A daily shampoo fighting damage, providing shine and restoring hair’s surface to a smooth condition without weighing hair down.
- Conditioner: A daily conditioner fighting damage, providing shine and restoring hair’s surface to a smooth condition without weighing hair down.
- Split End Fuser: Helps fuse split ends and prevent new ones from forming.
- 60 Second Therapy Ampoules: Mimics the hair’s natural protective layer to provide moisture and damage production; intense damage relief!
