About two months ago, my beauty obsessed friend told me about this new BB cream for your hair. I really thought she was playing a joke on me. I mean, I had definitely heard of BB cream, I even read about CC and DD cream, but I just didn’t believe that BB cream would exist for anything other than skin. Later that day she proved me wrong and proudly waved a bottle of Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Cream in front of my face. We decided to buy a bottle and see what it was all about.
Some quick anecdotes about my hair that will give you the full picture as to why I desperately needed a product to tame my mane.
My friends, family and hairdressers have always said I have the thickest hair of anyone they know.
In seventh grade I not only broke a hair dressers brush when getting my hair done (yes, just like in The Princess Diaries), she also told me “You have hair for four people”. My friends still recite this quote to this day.
Currently, it takes me an hour and a half to straighten my hair.
I also don’t know how to blow dry my hair without me looking like Hermione Granger.
So, back to the BB cream. At 21 years old, I had tried A LOT of products that were supposed to defrizz, loosen waves and smoothen hair. Since straightening takes so long and I have yet to master blow drying, I wanted a product that I could put in my wet hair and not worry about how it would dry. I’ve tried gels, mouses, sprays, weather protection cream, you name it. Nothing came close to how my hair dries with the Pantene BB Cream. Want proof? Check out the before and after pictures above.
This is the first product that I fully believe in and want to pass along to anyone who feels like I do about their hair. The BB cream tames my mane in 4 ways: eliminates frizz, smooths and softens, makes my hair manageable and leaves it not looking dry. I feel comfortable wearing it down in public without straightening or blow drying. My friends have taken notice and one even told me this is the best they’ve seen my hair dry. All you need is to apply two pumps the size of a quarter to wet hair and run it through from roots to tip and under layers. You can also apply another pump to dry hair for a shiny finish. The one problem is that this product is a bit of an overachiever, it has 10 hair care solutions in one cream. Show off.
