4 tips from beauty bloggers for stronger, more beautiful hair

by

When it comes to tips and tricks for seriously good hair, beauty bloggers have all the intel. They’ve tried just about every product on the shelf, know countless professionals in the industry, and are privy to some of the best beauty weapons of all.

Our sister site BEAUTYDIRECTORY recently teamed up with Pantene and 10 beauty influencers for a shampoo and conditioner trial based on their individual hair concerns. Luckily for you, we’ve taken the best bits from their reviews, so that you too, can have that blogger-worthy hair. Even better news: it doesn’t involve sacrificing your life savings, either.

#1 Use a hair mask

A good hair day won’t happen without effort. Heat-styling, colouring and environmental factors, such as sun, wind and sea, show no mercy when it comes to the condition of your strands. Counteract all the bad with some good, and indulge your hair in a treatment. “[After using the Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Colour Protection Conditioner] my hair was immediately pretty silky and bouncy,” says blogger Elese Dowden.

#2 Choose products that suit your hair type

You wouldn’t buy a pair of shoes two sizes too small, so don’t apply products that don’t “fit” your hair type, either. The best results come from products packed with ingredients specific to your hair’s needs. If your main concern is dryness and damage, choose products that help to restore, repair and nourish. As The Sunday Chapter says, “the road to recovery all starts with the basics: a good quality shampoo and conditioner, [and that] doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune”. Not sure what products are right for your hair? Pantene is here to help:


IF YOUR HAIR IS COLOUR TREATED…

“I’m a chronic dyer of violet hair, and my hair has been balyage a few times too, so it’s not naturally in the best condition…” – elesedowden

IF YOUR HAIR IS DRY AND DAMAGED…

“If you have hair like mine that is stressed from colouring and heat-styling I think this is definitely worth a go” – Goo Roo Beauty

bh recommends: Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner

IF YOUR HAIR IS WEAK, DULL AND BRITTLE…

“[It’s called the 10 repair & protect] because it is a shampoo that delivers 10 hair benefits in one. These include helping to prevent split ends and strengthen against breakage, it smoothes, moisturises, softens, reveals shine, improves manageability, detangles, restores natural volume, and controls frizz.” – The Sunday Chapter

#3 Factor in your schedule Equally important is that you don’t over-commit to a haircare routine that doesn’t suit your lifestyle. The state of your hair won’t improve on good intentions alone. So if you don’t have the energy, time or patience to dedicate 10 minutes to a hair treatment, opt for something that works in less than half the time with equally impressive results. “I’ve always been a fan of simplified beauty routines and products that can provide visible results with little time investment on my part,” says Beauty Bucket List. “Hair masks are tricky for me as I’m quite lazy when it comes to pampering myself,” says Sophia LS Makeup. Designed for daily use, the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioners help erase three months’ worth of damage in just three minutes, making it an ideal option for women like these beauty bloggers who are constantly on the go. #4 Don’t brush wet hair As tempting as it may be, avoid brushing those tangles from your locks straight out of the shower. Wet hair is weaker than dry, so tugging at it with a brush stretches, thins out, splits and breaks the hair follicle. If you must brush, always use a wide-toothed comb or your fingers. But you can eliminate the problem entirely. To ensure you don’t run into the issue of tangled hair post shower, use products that promote smooth and silky strands. Bondibeauty says that her hair felt so soft and smooth after using the Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner that she didn’t even need to use a comb. “My hair was so much more manageable. The blow-drying process was much easier, faster and with such smooth hair, I didn’t have to spend the usual 5 minutes fighting with knots and then trying to smooth it out! [The Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner] cut my grooming time in half”, she says. What are your best secrets for strong, beautiful hair?
