The mystery shampoo was finally unveiled during the New Pantene’s Amazing Hair – Transformation in 14 Days event held in Edsa Shangri-la last August 3, 2010. One celebrity after another (Andi Eigenmann, Erich Gonzales, Daphne Oseña-Paez, Carla Abellana, Claudine Barretto, Angel Aquino) came and raved about their respective experiences on how their hair feels a whole difference after just 14 days of use, others even said the transformation even took shorter than a couple of weeks. It was definitely a star studded night of lovely crowned belles.
I definitely could make use of that transformation they all speak of. So I figured a couple of weeks should not hurt and as of writing I am on my 7th day of the challenge. It is particularly hard to let go of my current favorite conditioner, but then again, 14 days shouldn’t be too long and I’m giving The New Pantene 14 Days for this. So far, so good, this much I can say, no more of that allergic reaction I had last year. I used an imported Smooth & Silky variant (the one with the pump package). This time I used the one that was given during the event – Hair Fall Control.

Now, I have a confession to make. As much as I love organic shampoos and conditioners, I haven’t really found one that did quite so well in the hair fall department. The pricier than usual shampoo – Phytocyane, which is designed for the very purpose of encouraging hair growth, my hair fall went an all time high in that whole month I used it. It was crazy! Not only was it a waste of almost a thousand bucks, but pimples also came erupting around my head and back. Eeek! The rest of the shampoo ended up in my liquid soap container that I use for handwash in my kitchen. I’m not kidding. Needless to say, giving this New Pantene a chance isn’t so hard for me to do.
I am pretty satisfied, so far, with The New Pantene’s performance on my hair. I’m noticing a whole bunch of difference. One hard proof: the hubby hasn’t yet collected a roll of hair from the bath tub drain ever since I used The New Pantene Hair Fall Control Shampoo and Conditioner tandem. Yes, aside from the trash – he gets to be the one who does the dirty jobs around the house. Hooray to sweet hubbies! He has to at least do the de-clogging (thanks to my falling hair) of the bath tub drain at least once a week before I got into this transformation in 14 days challenge. But I still cannot say I’m willing to let go of my Dove Intense Damage Therapy Conditioner after the challenge. But then again, I can always get my hands on the New Pantene’s Intensive Treatment Tub after 14 days and see if it can compete and can actually get my stubborn locks to behave itself. We’ll see. I will surely keep you guys posted. To date, I’m loving the New Pantene and the magic it does to my hair fall issues.
