This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pantene. The opinions and text are all mine.

Raise your hand if your hair has been personally victimized by your curling iron. 🙋 Same girl, same. No matter how hard I try to keep my hair healthy, I always fail, because I love when it's curled. I try not to curl my hair every day--sometimes it's only 2-3 times a week, but there are always a few pieces in the front that have to get touched up.

My poor hair is always so perfect after a haircut, but a few weeks down the road, my hair starts to feel dry again from curling, blow-drying, coloring, and the occasional straightening. Here are a few "before" pictures so I can show you what my hair looked like before Pantene came to the rescue!

There's nothing worse than styling your hair to perfection and then seeing distinct dry, brittle ends. Also, my hair was styled perfectly just a few hours prior to those before photos, but because my hair was feeling super dry, my curls fell right out! Whenever my hair doesn't look its best, I don't feel my best. Bad hair days are the absolute worst, but we can totally make every day a great hair day--even on the days we use heat!

I've always been obsessed with hair masks--I've tried so many over the years, but in the last few weeks, I've discovered the new Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots! Oh my goodness, they are a miracle worker. Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are ideal for color-treated and heat-styled hair of all types. Imported from Brazil, they just hit shelves nationwide in January, and they make your hair feel like it just had a salon-quality hair treatment.

Unlike other hair masks and treatments, the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots provide deep-conditioning but rinses quickly to avoid weighed-down hair. It's Pantene's most potent repair product all in the convenience of a single dose-tube. 

It contains a deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids, and natural glycerin, which helps to directly target damaged hair to give it flexibility and resilience. In just one use (after one use I noticed a huge difference!) you will notice that your hair is softer and shinier. Honestly, after the first use, my hair felt healthier than it has in such a long time!

I think that my favorite part of the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots aside from the convenient single dose-tubes is that my hair not only feels softer and looks healthier (after just the first use!), it was easy to brush through, and my curls are going on day three and still look perfect. No wonder it's the #1 selling new treatment across the haircare category.

How to use:

Shampoo with your favorite Pantene Shampoo.

I love, love Pantene's Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo that you saw me use during my Pantene 14 Day Challenge, but this time I decided to try Repair & Protect Shampoo to really help combat my heat-damaged hair.

Use weekly instead of your normal conditioner

While in-shower, apply generously to fully saturated hair, root-to-tip. Consider where your hair sees the most damage and be sure to target that area. (For me, I focused most of it on my ends.) The product was formulated to prevent overdosing so unlike other hair treatments, no need to hold back! Use it all, girlfriend!

Leave in for 30 seconds

Rinse for 30 seconds (don’t over-rinse!)

I literally count to thirty to make sure I don't over-rise!

Now that your hair has been shampooed and conditioned, my best piece of advice is to let it air dry overnight if you can! If you don't have the time and need to blow dry it, I totally get it, but if you're able to let it naturally dry overnight, that's one less styling product damaging your hair.

One of my go-to styles lately has been a huge bow, because to me it says, sweet preppy summertime. Once I've curled my hair, I'll take the top of the back section and pin it back with two to three bobby pins. Then, I'll clip in my bow to hide the bobby pins and completely change the look of my hairstyle. 

If you haven't tried the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, you've gotta try them ASAP and let me know what you think! You can find them now at here!
