The Best Product to Revive Hair Damaged by a Flat Iron

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pantene. The opinions and text are all mine.




Thank you to Pantene for sponsoring this post! I'm always so appreciative of the brand partnerships that make Venus Trapped in Mars possible. All thoughts and opinions are my own! 




I have super thick, kinky, curly hair that has a mind of its own. The way I style my hair goes in waves (hah, hair puns). During the summer months I almost always wear it curly because Texas is just WAY TOO HOT and I sweat too much, so straightening my hair ends up being pointless. During the winter though, I wear it straight nearly every day.

In the colder months, after using so many hot tools, if I don't feed it moisture on a regular basis it loses its luster and shine. The ends will get really frizzy and it takes several more passes with a flat iron to get smooth.

My hair is majorly high maintenance when I wear it straight or in loose curls. I first start by blowing it dry with a round brush, hit the roots and ends with a flat iron, then finish with a curling iron for loose waves. Talk about a moisture suck!





Earlier this month, I added a game changing new product called Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots to my weekly hair routine, and I am OBSESSED!!! This is Pantene’s first at-home rescue treatment which has actually been imported from Brazil, and will hit shelves this month! 

Prior to learning about this new product, I'd get my moisturizing treatment at the salon. This ended up being SO EXPENSIVE and while it did leave my hair feeling so much softer, I just couldn't justify the price tag. The Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are designed to be used at home and they repair extremely damaged hair in just the first use. If you color treat your hair, or use tons of hot tools (like I do) these need to be in your beauty routine.





The Intense Rescue Shots are Pantene's most potent repair product yet, with a single-dose tube containing a deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids and natural glycerin that targets the damaged areas to give hair the flexibility and resilience it needs to endure styling and environmental stresses.

I've used at home conditioning treatments in the past that weigh down your hair because they don't wash out very well. This treatment rinses quickly, so you won't have any of that gunky residue that leaves your hair feeling greasy.



Using them is easy, too. Drew and I did a staycation this past weekend at The Stoneleigh (we had their Presidential Suite, HOLY COW was it a beaut) so before we went out for a date night, I just replaced my normal conditioner that day with the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots. I'd recommend doing this once a week, honestly.

You'll want to use the single-dose tube root to tip, but I get way more damage on my ends due to flat ironing, so I applied more on the ends of my hair.

Leave it in for 30 seconds, then rinse out for 30 seconds! I'd actually recommend not over rinsing, either, because it is designed NOT to weigh your hair down. You basically can't mess this up!

And then voila, luscious locks in just one treatment a week for just FIVE DOLLARS at Target!!!!!
