You already know that I live in the desert, which can wreak havoc on my processed hair. Add festival season and excessive styling to that, and we have a dry, brittle disaster! Recently, Pantene released their new Intense Rescue Shots, and I knew I had to try it out on my post-festival hair. Read on to see how I used the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots to save my gorgeous locks from all the crazy festival and weather damage!
Just because I didn't attend a festival this season doesn't mean that I wasn't living vicariously through everyone who did! To avoid major FOMO, I still spent the weekend dressing up Coachella-style, including getting my hair done. This year I wanted to go for big braids and space buns (because I'm just extra like that). Although it was the cutest hair EVER and I felt like a literal Festival Queen, I knew my damaged hair was going to absolutely hate me afterwards.
When to Use Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots
To repair this post-festival hair, cue the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots – The #1 selling new treatment in the haircare category and Pantene's first at-home repair treatment. Color-treated, over-processed, and heat-styled hair can leave your ends feeling brittle and dry, which is a huge no-no in my book. This treatment was formulated with women like me in mind – you know, the ones who are addicted to our hair dye and curling irons!
After the festival madness, I paired my Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots with Pantene's Repair & Protect Shampoo. Once I stepped out of the shower and went to comb my hair, I could instantly see and feel the difference it had made on my damaged locks.
I usually can't even run my fingers through my hair right after a shower, but the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots left it feeling softer, easier to brush through, and WAY less tangled! I couldn't believe how soft it was!
The best part of it all was that my hair didn't feel weighed down or heavy, like how it does when I use some of my other masks or treatments. These Intense Rescue Shots absorb into your hair instead of just sitting on top and coating it.
I love how healthy my hair looked, but more importantly, I love how healthy it felt.
How to Use Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots
The single-dose tubes can be used weekly in place of your regular conditioner. While you're in the shower, apply the product generously from root-to-tip. Be sure to target areas that see the most damage. I applied a little extra to my ends, because that's where my hair felt most damaged. You don't have to be nervous about applying too much – use the entire tube! Let it all sit in your hair for 30 seconds. Rinse for 30 seconds! (But don't over-rinse, you want to make sure the nutrients are still locked in place.)
THAT'S IT! Seriously, how easy is that? It's basically an at-home treatment that I can use between my salon visits, and I love the fact that it takes only a minute from start-to-finish. (Because let's face it, I might as well be president of the Lazy Girls Club!) Did you know that Pantene is the official haircare sponsor for Coachella, Stagecoach and Firefly this year?
