Yup it’s still summer! On the worst days, like today which is cloudy and ridiculously humid, I like to keep my hair off my face but still wear it down. Keeping the frizzies away can be a battle but it is very possible. Using good products is a great starting point as well as figuring out what tools, techniques and styles work best for your hair. Today I did one of my easy go to styles.
I have been a Pantene fan for most of my life. I’m a curly girl but the last few weeks I’ve been using Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner to aid my straight styles. Conditioner is a major key to keeping my hair happy. I usually buy 2-4 bottles at a time from Walmart because I use conditioner 3-4 days each week and shampoo once or twice weekly. Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Conditioner is super creamy and has argan oil in it which is awesome because it helps battle dry, frizzy hair in this Florida heat for nearly 72 hours! I like the creamy conditioner because it seems better at coating each hair strand, making it easier to detangle and simply feels silkier. Today I co-washed, meaning I only used the conditioner.
To avoid double duty heat I avoided the flat iron today. When I know I’ll only be using a blow dryer I use a large round brush to give some curve and life to my hair, usually at the ends. Of course I added a quarter sized amount of argan oil to my hair before starting…I have thick hair. I used high speed on medium heat and finished with a cool blast.
I like putting a french braid at the edges of my face to keep my hair out of the way. I have bangs and usually braid just that portion and pin it in place at the end. This time I decided to section a bit of my longer hair to make a full braid. I teased my bangs a bit first to add some volume and then braided 75% down and sealed it with a rubber band.
I wear my hair like this a few times a month because it’s so easy to do and keeps my hair off my face. Condition, blow dry, braid…the end! Do you have a go to easy hairdo? What’s your favorite Pantene conditioner? Tell me in the comments below!
