More than a year has passed since the shift to a new normal and the nostalgia of being able to go out as you please really hits the nail. Months of being unbothered about how we look have passed and now, the reflection we see in the mirror is just begging for the attention and maintenance that we’ve deprived ourselves of.
The unruly, overgrown, problematic hair that we now have to deal with needs the salon TLC that it deserves. By now, we all probably miss the experience of being in the salon — the smell, atmosphere, and fulfillment that a pampered and good-looking head of hair makes us feel.
But, we can always take matters into our own hands. If you’re missing the confidence that salon-like results offer, here are four tips to achieve a Salontastic experience at home.
1. Wash Your Scalp and Hair with Care
The first step for a Salontastic at-home experience is to clean your hair and scalp. Since we’re used to washing hair with the same products every day, we might not notice the effect different shampoos have in how they cleanse and even protect hair from external factors. A shampoo with rice oil essence is just what your hair needs for a Salontastic experience.
Rice oil is an underrated beauty ingredient that comes from the Japanese tradition of using rice water to wash hair. The abundance of vitamin E in rice oil can help reduce inflammation and reverse damage to the hair follicles. It’s the perfect ingredient to maintain strong, long, and shiny hair.
Wash your scalp and hair with care with the Pantene Long Hair Solutions: Total Damage Care Shampoo with Pro-Vitamin Formula & Japanese Rice Oil Essence Shampoo. With regular use, it ultimately helps repair damaged hair and keeps hair protected from external factors.
2. Use A Microfiber Towel
The items you use for drying your hair can also affect its look and texture just as much as the products you apply. Cotton towels have loose threads that can tangle and pull your hair, leading to breakage and frizz. Unlike textured towels, microfiber towels are made of a smoother material that creates less friction on your strands. They’re gentler on different hair textures, prevent snags, and help to keep the hair cuticle smooth.
3. Use A Conditioner that Protects Your Strands
It’s important to maintain moisture in hair and provide protection from further damage by using a conditioner. Moisture keeps hair hydrated and supple, preventing it from being dry and brittle which can lead to damage.
Unlike conventional conditioners, Pantene Collagen Miracle Intensive Serum Conditioner targets damaged strands, making hair more resilient against breakage from external causes. It also has real Collagen that can bring back the natural strength of your hair. With a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, miracle serum, and real Collagen — nutrients are sealed and moisture is locked in each strand, turning dry, frizzy hair into shiny, smoother hair every day.
If you have colored or permed hair, the Pantene Color & Perm Conditioner can also smoothen 3 months' worth of hair damage in just 3 minutes.* This Pantene conditioner leaves each strand of hair with a protective layer of repair essence. Not to mention that it also helps hair color and perm last longer.
4. Cap it all off with a Miracle Treatment
Here’s the grand finale to achieve salon-like hair results. You can give your hair a boost of smoothness and shine without the grease with the Pantene Collagen Miracle Hair Treatment Shots. It has Pro-Vitamin Blends and Collagen, keeping each hair strand hydrated and replenished of lost nutrients.
After rinsing your conditioner, squeeze the excess water from your hair and apply the Collagen Treatment Shots. Leave it on for 10 minutes while wrapped in a warm towel then wash with room-temp water. You can air dry or blow-dry your hair after, and style it as you please.
