Pantene Truly Natural Hair Collection Review

With warmer weather quickly approaching I've been anticipating more low maintenance hair routines. Having  natural hair; my favorite go-to style is the simple yet effective wash and go. I love it because not only is it quick and easy but it also gives me beautiful curls that I can wear without the hassle of spending long hours under the dryer or in the salon. I recently got the opportunity to try out a few products from Pantene's Truly Natural hair care line which include a clarifying shampoo, deep conditioner, and a styling custard for defining curls.

Glow: I have to start by saying that Pantene has always been a staple in my hair care regimen and I have tried many of their products before so needless to say that I was more than excited about testing out their Truly Natural line which finally caters to girls with curly hair. During my application of the products the first step was to wash my hair with the Truly Natural Clarifying Shampoo which is formulated to remove build-up and oily reside left in your hair. The thing I loved most about this shampoo is that it gives a great lather with just a small amount of product and that it really made my hair feel squeaky clean without drying it out. And for someone with super oily hair like me, that's definitely a huge plus! Next, I applied the Truly Natural Deep Conditioner which works to moisturize and detangle your hair. Any girl with curly hair knows that a good detangler is an absolute must and this conditioner didn't fall short of my expectations. I love the scent and it did a really good job at loosening my curls so I could comb through and detangle them. My hair also felt super soft. Lastly, after rinsing out the conditioner I applied the Truly Natural Defining Curls Custard to my damp hair and worked it through from root to ends for an even coverage then I allowed my hair to air dry for a few hours. Once dry I noticed that my curls were really defined and my hair felt soft and had a great shine to it!

Glare: I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the styling custard before using it because I've tried many custards in the past by other brands which didn't produce favorable results. But to my surprise the Truly Natural Styling Custard was totally different. The consistency of the product is sort of thick and sticky more along the lines of a styling gel but not as thick. So the formula is between a cream and a gel, which worked for me. It was thick enough to define and hold my curls in place and at the same time it was still lightweight and manageable and did not flake or leave any residue behind and best of all it left my hair frizz free. 

Final Thoughts: I'm really happy to see that Pantene is continuing to to develop products that are more specific to the needs of their consumer. I can tell that they really took their time in the creation of this Truly Natural line and I definitely plan to continue using it for my curly hair needs this summer! 

Where To Buy: The great thing is that all of the products are super affordable (about $4.49 each) and convenient to find. They are currently available in most local drugstores nationwide. To find a location near you or to learn more about Pantene Truly Natural please visit their website.
