If you are new here, hello. I’m Sharron with a head full of hair. With long hair, the struggle is real! If you are like me, I hate washing my hair. I mean I dread it. Washing my hair and let’s be honest, even shaving my legs, is a luxury these days even while Quarantining… I usually wear my hair straight but its naturally curly. If you have been following me awhile, you know I go from straight to curly and wear protective styles from time to time. So, finding a hack to get me through my hair woes has been a winner. Hence the discovery of Pantene Waterless Collection including dry shampoo
Dry shampoo has been around a long time. I remember when dry shampoo started to become popular, but it was not as popular for black hair. The mere notion that it will dry out the hair scared some people away. However, many people still seemed either skeptical or wildly curious. There are so many myths and I’m here to dispel them. I must say the Pantene Waterless Collection is a perfect addition to add to your hair arsenal. It didn’t dry out my hair nor did it leave a white messy residue.
When Pantene challenged me to create 5 looks without washing my hair, I thought I could make it 3 days at the most. However, I made 6.
Here are the hairstyles in my arsenal that will last me 5 days or more without washing my hair, yes – 5 days.
Here’s my look for Day 1 of my post-wash hair. My go-to is to throw on a cute headband over my original hairstyle. It instantly polished my look, while still maintaining a cute hairstyle. All I used was a tad of Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray and Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Mist Conditioner Mist to maintain the fresh look. For the dry conditioner, hold the can at least six to eight inches from your head and spray at the ends of your hair. Any closer and you’ll end up with too much product on your ends. I love how it immediately provides 24 hour, anti-frizz hydration that works to block humidity, so my hair lays smooth all day long. Bonus, the ingredient line up is a real winner with Jojoba oil, Aloe Vera, Omega-9 and Pro-vitamin B5.
Here’s Day 2, I like to naturally part my hair off to the side. This look can be more on the ‘messier’ side and does an amazing job of adding natural volume to your hair. However, I wanted to maintain it straight as possible with volume. For this look, I sprayed the Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray to my ends and roots. This invisible dry shampoo absorbs dirt and oil without any of the white powdery residue. I have also used the Pantene Curl Affair Curl (Re)Shaping Cream to help when I had a more “messier” look and on my curls. To reshape curls, twist or scrunch the curl reshaping cream through dry hair. For softly defined curls, apply to damp hair. Did I mention it’s free of sulfates, parabens and drying alcohols?
This style is super easy! I literally take my hair and carefully pull it back into a low ponytail. You can even play around with different hair scrunchies, scarfs & accessories to go with your look for the day. I like to spray a small amount of Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Spray on my scalp to keep it looking smooth, super fun and still with plenty of body. I love the wild mint and Pro-Vitamin B5 which helps absorb the dirt and excess oils.
Here’s Day 4, I took my straight hair and parted it to the other side. I added some cute hair pins for fun and to create a different look. I pulled some hair to the front for elevated look and made sure to use Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist on the ends of my hair to keep them looking fresh and frizz-free.
Finally, for my final look – the pulled back braid. This, for some reason, has been my absolute favorite lately. I even wear my hair like this to the gym when it is open. I added gel to the sides and front to keep my edges down.
What I love the most about this hairstyle is how truly versatile it is. It can go with a cocktail dress, to the gym, to a day date, and to the office. Not to mention, it looks so put together – you would never think it’s Day 5 hair. Again, I just dab a bit of Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist to my entire head to keep the flyways down and hair smooth.
That’s it you guys! I really hope you enjoyed these hairstyles and try recreating them yourself!
