When I was contacted by the Pantene team to try another one of their latest collections, I jumped at the opportunity! What I love most about the brand is that there always seems to be a well thought out message behind each of the products and their launches. This time, I was challenged to shut out the outside world and use my time trying these products as an opportunity for self care, reflection, and discovery. Honestly speaking, this couldn’t have come at a more perfect moment as now more than ever with everything going on in the world, the majority of our time is being spent at home. On the bright side, this allows for the ability to catch up on rest, read, finally organize my space in ways that I never had time to before, and most importantly, more frequent wash days! For the most part, I generally look forward to and take the most advantage of “self-care Sundays.” This is a designated time that I know for a fact, I can spend tending to my personal needs and preparing myself for the week ahead. I usually start out with cleaning my apartment to my favorite soundtrack of the moment, that way, my space is clean and I can then focus all of my attention on ME!

When it comes to my specific hair needs, I tend to gravitate towards moisture retention products the most. While I barely put heat on my hair, I do use tons of gel on a regular basis to create my sleek signature bun. Because of this, and how dry my routine can make my scalp, I knew that the Miracle Moisture Boost shampoo and conditioner with Rose Water would be the line for me! Aside from the heavenly scent, I found it fascinating that the rose water infused in the products actually came from the petals and buds of rosa gallica that thrive in the Middle East. These nourishing formulas also come free of sulfates and parabens, which are rich in the skin-hydrating Vitamins B5 & B3. After using these products my hair and scalp feel clean, without being stripped. Regarding the conditioner specifically, it leaves my strands feeling soft and my curls looking incredibly full and healthy. Over the years I’ve definitely noticed an increase in popularity when it comes to the benefits of rose water in both hair and skincare products. This is why it was no surprise to find out that women in regions such as Morrocco continue to use these types of natural ingredients in their beauty regimens to get ahead and deliver relief from the dry climates.

During this time of solitude and “social distancing,” it truly is in the moments of self-care that we can begin to reflect on ourselves, how we treat each other, and our planet. Appreciating the beauty of just being able to freely take a walk outside and enjoy the fresh air is something that I’ve definitely taken for granted. We’ve just moved into Spring and oddly enough don’t have a date on when we’ll be able to go out and appreciate the blue skies, calm waves, or freshly bloomed flowers. That being said, I am confident in knowing that once we are able to resume life as it once was, I’ll be able to take it on with a restored outlook and refreshed hair thanks to the Pantene Nutrient Blends collection!
