3 Ways Pantene Protects and Indulges Summer Hair


Let me just echo what everyone in Manila has been saying: This summer heat is crazy. Temperatures are rising up to 40 degrees Celsius so it's pretty understandable why everyone's choosing to head over to the beach or the pool before anything else. It's just a no-fail way to keep cool during the summer.

To be honest, I’ve always favored the pool more than the sea. I’ve had a fear of the ocean, ever since I watched Titanic as a kid, and let’s just say I (still) prefer being in a place where my feet can easily touch the ground. Now that I think about it, I don’t even think you’d ever catch me in the sea without a lifejacket on and clinging onto someone (usually my husband) for dear life. Haha!

Anyway, I digress.

The thing about swimming pools is, they have a tendency to make my hair look like a lion’s mane every time I get out. This happens whether or not I tie my hair up in a ponytail. I’m always left with tons of split ends and incredibly dry strands. Basically, I’m left with a tangled mess that takes tons of minutes to comb through. It’s times like these that conditioner becomes my best friend. But then again, not all conditioners are made equal. Some fare below average when it comes to keeping up with the summer heat.

Pantene has recently released their latest line of products to let me swim sans hair worries. I’m pretty big on conditioner and swear by it every time I wash my hair, so I’m a huge fan of Pantene’s UV Rescue 3 Minute Miracle. Here are my 3 reasons why you should indulge your hair and #besummerstrong:

1. Strengthens Hair

Pantene prevents further sun damage by prepping hair with a layer of protection. The reality is, summer heat isn’t the only one damaging a girl’s tresses. Salt water and chlorine wreak havoc too.

One of the secrets I’ve learned is to use the Pantene UV Rescue 3 Minute Miracle conditioner before swimming. GUYS, I KID YOU NOT. IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. Ladies, you feel me on this, right? I can’t be the only one grimacing in pain whenever it’s hair-untangling time. With Pantene’s latest product, there’s less tangles, less breakage, and not to mention, less pain! Yaaaaaass!!

2. Just 3 Minutes

3 minutes is all it takes for Pantene’s conditioner to work its magic. Again, just 3 minutes, you guys. My favorite song is longer than that. Speaking of, I pass the time in my shower belting it out to Lion King songs because I’m still on a high from watching the musical.

3. Repairs Hair Damage

I don’t like doing a lot of things to my hair because I have annual rebonding sessions. That means, for 6 hours, I’m stuck in a chair while my favorite hairstylist from The List salon works his magic and turns my thick hair into straight and manageable hair. I can’t quit my annual habit because the truth is, there’s no greater feeling than just rolling out of bed and still looking like a million bucks — hair wise, of course.

That being said, since I do subject my hair to harsh chemical treatments, I do my very best to make sure my hair is still strong. Manila’s crazy sun, though amazing for barbecues and beach parties, is incredibly damaging to the hair. It can leave hair brittle, dry, and lifeless.

Pantene’s 3 Minute Miracle is said to repair up to 3 months worth of damage, which is pretty insane, but also such a godsend for girls like me whose hair needs a ton of TLC. I won’t lie, so full disclosure, I’ve still got a long way to go before I empty my current bottle of Pantene 3 Minute Miracle conditioner, but so far, I’m already seeing good results. I’ll take that over lifeless hair any day!


So to recap, Pantene’s latest products of the UV Rescue shampoo and the 3 Minute Miracle conditioner work wonders in just 3 minutes. Now I don’t know about you, but I think the addition of a mere 3-5 minutes in your normal regimen is nothing compared to the results you and your hair will reap.
