Everyone’s hair is different. Mine, in particular, is especially unique – complete with mood swings and a multiple personality. After a year of rocking this natural thang (I named her Juicy), I’ve learned that she needs special products to make her feel free.
Enter Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural.
Like most curly girls, my natural hair is naturally dry with a tight curl pattern. The countless zig zags make it difficult for my scalp’s natural sebum to moisturize my hair. Hence, the tangling and dryness. Pantene’s Pro-V formula contains moisturizing agents like coconut oil and jojoba seed oil to keep curlies hydrated and shiny.
Even though Juicy needs a TON of moisture to act right, she still likes to be fluffy and light. Keeping that fluff in check with DC humidity is a constant challenge. When Pantene asked me to try out their Truly Natural line, I jumped at the opp to launch my natural war with the heat.
Battle begins with a wash.
The line contains 2 conditioning products: A co-wash and a deep conditioner. I mixed the co-wash with coconut oil and used it to pre-poo the night before. Once I got in the shower the next day, I rinsed out my potion, applied the deep conditioner and put my cap on. Five minutes later, magic baby! My knots literally melted away as I finger detangled my hair with the product in it.
Fresh out the shower, I applied the Defining Curls Custard. While it had amazing hold, my hair felt a bit hard and dry after a few hours. The next time I put it on Juicy, some leave-in conditioner may be required underneath to smooth her mood over a bit. I’ll also let you naturalistas know that the Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural line does have silicones in it, so you’ll have to cleanse with a sulfate shampoo, like the Truly Natural Clarifying Shampoo, to thoroughly clean your hair.
My love out of the bunch? The deep conditioner. The ridiculous slip is priceless, but if I had to put a $ sign on it, it’d only be $4.99.
What do you think of my fro? I feel #TrulyMe!
