Summer is all about colour

Summer is all about colour, from the tropical nail polish shades we choose for our pedicured feet, to the beautiful sun-kissed hues that we select for our hair. While we love the warmer months, the fact of the matter remains that UV rays coupled with chlorine from the swimming pool and salt from the sea can do much to damage our carefully coloured tresses.

That’s why leading hair care brand, Pantene developed its Protect & Shine collection, to ensure that no matter what colour we choose, our beautiful locks are given the very best protection along with added volume, smoothness and shine. It’s the best summer solution this year for colour-treated hair, keeping our look fresh no matter how much time we spend in the sun or out in the water.

Sun in Our Hair

Pantene’s Pro-V science not only nourishes colour treated hair but it also improves the way light interacts with our hair, which is perfect for when we’re out in the summer sun. From natural beach waves to a beautiful evening up-do, Pantene protects and locks in colour, smooths, protects and provides a healthy shine. The result is nourished, beautiful and shiny hair.

The Science of Pantene’s Pro-V Formula

Leading hair care specialist and trichologist, Dr John Gray explains the science behind Pantene’s Pro-V science formula: “The reason Pantene makes hair look so beautiful lies in its Pro-Vitamin B5, or Panthenol, as it is otherwise known. Pro-Vitamins penetrate deep into the cortex of each hair strand remarkably improving hair health, strength and elasticity from deep within.”

“Pantene’s Pro-V compound disperses in water and spreads through the shampoo lather as small molecular structures. As the hair becomes wet and swells, the cuticles become more porous, allowing water to enter easily. At this stage, the water-soluble polymers in the shampoo help deliver Pro-V to the hair strand and as diffusion of the Pro-V molecules occurs, the Pro-V moves from the exterior of the hair into the inner core of the hair. Pro-V is therefore delivered deep into the hair shaft, reaching the core and helping to nourish the hair,” adds Dr Gray.

Beach Ready Waves

Pantene’s Pro-V collections offer various formulations to address specific hair needs and the Colour, Protect, Shine collection is no different. The range aims to restore colour brilliance so that we can maintain our beach ready waves with as little upkeep as possible. By indulging our hair with Pantene’s Pro-V formula, we no longer have to fear the effects of the sun’s UV rays and with the Protect & Shine range that follows, we can let our gorgeous locks shine:
