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


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.
