I got a little trimmy trim on Tuesday, and my stylist gave me some earth-shattering news: Pantene Pro-V shampoo and conditioner is the worst for your hair! Anyone who has smelled my clean head knows that I've been a Pantene devotee for years. I did not know what to do with myself when I heard this terrible news! She says that Pantene "tricks" your hair into being soft and shiny: it over-proteinates it, coating and coating it until what you feel is basically shellack, and your poor hair on the inside gets brittle and breaks. I was so traumatized, I immediately went to the beauty supply store across the street and switched to Paul Mitchell. (For the pocketbook-conscious, it's the same price.)
Ladies, consider yourselves warned! Pantene and other drug store shampoos will break your heart.
