Change. It’s inevitable.

Whether it’s time, weather, season, personal or general – life’s pretty much full of them.

But change can be a very good thing. Like seeing one bad hair day change to more great hair days. Mhm, it’s time to flip the script! Since I’ve been using my (affordable!) favorite, Pantene, for years I realize I can count on them to counter these changes; keeping things relevant and personal when it comes to hair (it me, because they get me).

So in between my hectic schedule, photoshoots and constant travels, there’s just no time for bad hair days. Nope, none. And because Pantene understands my hair type and needs, I decided to ditch styling products and take on their 14-Day Challenge. What’s the promise? Oh you know, a bold 100% full, thick and weightless body that lasts up to 24 hours. Do the math. That’s 14 days + their new formula = 24 hours of healthy, full-bodied hair (but, every day)! An obvi no brainer – bring on the rinse and repeat!

Let me take it back to Day 1. Once upon a time, I thought my (fine, flat) hair was actually fine and then it met Pantene’s Sheer Volume Collection…and things just got better! Say what? When I washed my hair with Sheer Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, I instantly noticed how much lighter, cleaner and easier it was to detangle. Ok, I’m beginning to see you volume!

Now, fast forward to Day 7. After my morning rush-hour traffic and conference calls to lunch finally, I realized (what-the!) my hair was still holding up its volume and it blocked out the consistent Florida heat. Insert: confidence booster because I just turned up the volume and beat the heat (with just two washes). #doublewins

My hair is shinier with even more volume than before from the above. But my tips and tricks? Easy, it’s in the little things. If you’re anything like me, you may already start every morning with a glass of water. Why not start out strong? Water naturally rehydrates my body and adds fuel to my hair for the whole day. Another component is to make sure you stay out of direct contact with the sun because those UV rays can be secretly and powerfully destructive. Think: awesome volume quickly dropping to flat hair – yeah, #nothanks. Now, my personal fave, just before going to bed, I’ll wear a soft scrunchie. It’s one of the best ways to prevent any breakage from sneaking in and adds extra volume for the morning. Like I said, it’s in the little things that create the full impact.

Wait, is it already Day 14? Since I’m all about result-driven products, it’s safe to say Pantene’s Sheer Volume Collection is my new secret weapon. As I stare at my hair, I can’t stop starting at the increase in shine and volume it’s holding. So whether it’s a big or small change in my life, I know I got it handled mane-ly because of the boost in strength and confidence the #Pantene14DayChallenge has given me. Singing, “I Got This Feeling…” like I can conquer any change coming this way. Who knew that kind of power can be found in just two bottles?
