Happy Sunday, Fleurdille family! Ladies, today’s post is for you! I wish I could take a virtual course to see how many of you have been using hot tools on your hair since adolescence. I’m willing to bet almost all of you have had years of styling with a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron. I know I definitely have. From the stick straight hair trend in junior high and high school to ringlet curls to beach waves. My hair has been through the wringer!
Over the past couple of years I have made it a personal goal to really take care of my skin and hair. I have worked to invest in better beauty products and hair care products that will restore my skin and hair. It may be because I’m getting older, but I’m starting to see the signs of damage from years of carelessness, and I am determined to turn it around.
Today, I am so excited to be partnering with one of my favorite brands, Pantene, to get to share how I have been working to repair my damaged hair. For me, damaged hair has been a part of my lifestyle for most of my adult life. I have started implementing healthier habits such as not washing my hair every day in an effort retain natural oils, but I know I am still doing things that damage my hair like using a curling iron on a daily basis. I can get away with blow drying my hair once every couple of days, but I use a flat iron on the hairs that surround my face, and I use a curling iron on the rest of my hair almost every single day. Constant use of heat on my hair has definitely left my hair damaged.
When I say damaged, I’m referring to the damage that most of us probably deal with – broken, frizzy hairs, split ends, and dry hair. The damage seems manageable to a point, but lately my hair has reached a state where it’s too hard to hide the stress I’ve been putting my hair through. I’ve started to become a lot more aware of the damage and even feel embarrassed at times due to how unhealthy my hair seems.
If you were to feel my hair several weeks ago you would probably describe it as coarse, dry, and broken. However, over the past couple of weeks I have been using one of Pantene’s newest products – the Intense Rescue Shots. I was first attracted to the Intense Rescue Shots because of how easy they are to use. You simply shampoo your hair (I like Pantene’s Repair & Protect Shampoo for damaged hair), and then instead of using your normal conditioner, you work the Intense Rescue Shots into your damp hair starting from the root down to the ends and allow it to sit for 30 seconds. The ends of my hair seem to be the most damaged so I applied the most product to my ends. Then you rinse it out for 30 seconds. They’re quick and easy, and don’t require me to go into the salon or to pay a ton of money to treat my damaged hair.
How to fix damaged hair w/ Intense Rescue Shots:
Wash hair with your shampoo of choice (I use Pantene’s Repair & Protect Shampoo for damaged hair)
Rinse out your shampoo
Apply Pantene’s Intense Rescue Shots to your damp hair. Start at the roots and work until the end concentrating on the areas most damaged.
Allow the treatment to sit on your hair for 30 seconds and then rinse for 30 seconds.
Complete steps 1-4 once a week to achieve shinier, softer, healthier hair.
The Intense Rescue Shots are intended to be used weekly and y’all, after only 2 weeks I have noticed a major shift in the health of my hair. The main benefits I’ve seen are smoother hair after styling and a reduction in my broken hairs and flyaways. The result that has shocked me the most however, is my boost in confidence. After styling my hair while using the Intense Rescue Shots, my hair looks smoother, shinier, and feels softer. I’ve even had several people compliment my hair!
If you’re like me and know you will continue to use hot tools on your hair, but you want the healthiest looking hair you can get, I really do suggest trying Pantene’s Intense Rescue Shots. I’m a huge money saver and love that I can get salon-quality results simply by using this 60-second rescue treatment once a week.
Benefits of using Intense Rescue Shots:
The single dose-tube contain a deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids and natural glycerin that targets the damaged areas to give hair the flexibility and resilience it needs to endure styling and environmental stresses.
The strengthening lipids in the shot absorbs into the hair (rather than just a heavy coating like some masks and treatments) directly targeting the most damaged areas.
Noticeably repairs extreme damage – to turn dry, brittle hair into soft, shiny and more resilient hair in one use.
Affordable treatment – rather than going to the salon for extra treatments, utilize this at-home treatment to keep you hair healthy, shiny, and smooth.
So ladies, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a little hair care. You won’t be disappointed! With these Intense Rescue Shots imported straight from Brazil, I am determined we can get our hair healthy again and looking just like those gorgeous Brazilian women!
