The Secret To My Great Hair – My Mane Event with Pantene Recap & Giveaway

8384519627_38eeeebb61

I’ve got great hair! I used to say that it’s because I’m a Leo and Leo’s are known for their manes. But the truth of the matter is I’ve been using Pantene FOREVER. I mean for as long as I can remember I’ve been using Pantene products. So clearly I owe my amazing, shiny, healthy, luscious locks to them.

 

So when I was invited by MomTrends to attend a Pantene party I jumped at the chance. One because MomTrends throws the BEST parties and two because I am a walking talking Pantene girl.

 

The party started off in style as it always does with MomTrends and Pantene is all about style. I was picked up at my Jersey home by a car service and brought into the city to MPE Penthouse (they had the most amazing view of the city).

The night started off with cocktails, appetizers and catching up with blogger friends.

The “mane” event however, was the doctor behind the new AgeDefy and Advanced+ Keratin Repair  line for Pantene. Dr. Jeni Thomas, Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry and P&G’s Beauty and Grooming Principal Scientist, who works on researching the areas of the scalp and hair.

Prior to the event, Pantene had sent all attendees products from their new Age Devy line. Which of course I loved. I’ve been using the Keratin shampoo and conditioner they sent as my hair is fairly straight (sometimes I get a little wave in it). Everyone loves Pantene for the smell but Pantene makes my hair super shiny and healthy. It really is for hair so healthy it shines.

I learned a ton from Dr. Jeni that night including that she works alongside the Olay folks (after all they are both P&G brands) in regards to aging hair and skin. She talked breakage, greys, frizz and more. I even had some one-on-one time with Dr. Jeni and I told her how I noticed my scalp has changed once I hit 30. That I don’t know if it’s truly dandruff I occasionally get versus dry scalp. She said often times when it comes and goes it can be stress related. Interesting! She suggested that I continue to switch between a dandruff shampoo and a regular shampoo.

 

This of course made me bring up the Pantene Anti-Dandruff shampoo that was discontinued. I had been using that for a while, and then it was discontinued. Last summer I was thrilled when on the Pantene Facebook page we got to vote for what retired item we wanted back and then learned that they all came back. Unfortunately I couldn’t locate the anti-dandruff shampoo anywhere. I mentioned it to Dr. Jeni who introduced me to the nice PR folks and wouldn’t you know…. A week after the event I got a package in the mail. A years’ worth of Pantene Anti-Dandruff shampoo!!!!!! You have no idea how excited I was. Now I can switch between that and the Keratin I love so much also.

There were stylists on hand to create some fun looks with the new line. I opted for beachy waves.

The Echo Design group was there also teaching bloggers how to tie scarves in a multitude of ways. Plus we got one in our swag bag. Yippee!

 

As you can tell I had a blast that night! And now I’m giving you the opportunity to win some fab Pantene swag for yourself so that you can also have super luscious locks.

Great Fundraising Option
(Pictured Here Delta Phi Epsilon locket)

You can purchase a locket through my Origami Owl website and your order will be shipped directly to you. If you are interested in hosting a party (in person or online) and earning hostess rewards towards a locket please email me through my site. If you are an organization looking for a great new fundraising idea, I’m your girl.

 

I’m also looking for people to join my team so if you are looking for a fun new job or just some extra cash, let me know. As of me writing this, there is currently a wait list for designers. Origami Owl is less than a year old and has had booming success in such a short time period, hence the wait list.

Origami Owl’s story starts with a teenager and a dream. Our company was founded by 14 year-old Isabella in the fall of 2010. Fueled by a goal to raise enough money to buy a car for her 16th birthday, she started the business with $350 worth of babysitting money and a matched contribution from her parents. She sold her unique line of personalized jewelry at home parties and events and quickly realized that this brand has an energy all its own. People absolutely love creating and wearing personalized jewelry that has meaning and is special to them.

Origami Owl’s success has catapulted since its inception in 2010. Today our signature jewelry collections are available online and through our trained Independent Designers, who sell our products exclusively at home parties and events-just as Isabella did from the very beginning! Our parties are a fun way to bring together a group of friends for a unique, memorable and highly personalized experience.

With Isabella as our inspiration, we at Origami Owl are strongly united in the core belief that: if you can dream it, you can do it. Whether you aspire to raise money to further your education, buy your first home or go on a dream vacation-it’s all possible with hard work and dedication.
