Going natural was one of the most liberating beauty decisions I made as an African American woman. It allowed me to embrace my hair texture as it grows from the follicle and also learn how to keep my coils healthy. Right now I’m keeping them healthy with regular washes and conditioning using Pantene’s Gentle Moisture with Coconut Extract Shampoo and Conditioner.
The Pantene Gentle Moisture with Coconut Extract Shampoo and Conditioner is the brand-new collection available exclusively at Dollar General. The new gentle formula is created with moisturizing coconut extract that replenishes dry hair to make the hair look shinier, feel softer and moisturized. One of the biggest tips I give women who are natural is to examine their hair frequently. I always evaluate how my hair feels after using products because that tells the tales. After washing my hair with Pantene, it never feels wiry, dry or brittle. Part of the reason is there are no parabens, mineral oil, or dyes that can potentially cause harm to the scalp or hair. The absence of these harsh chemicals makes the formula gentle enough on my hair for daily use.
I have what some define as the tightest coils on the natural hair spectrum categorized as 4C hair. The majority of my coils are tiny “O” shaped rings that stack on top of each other to form what looks like tiny springs.
My curl pattern is considered the most fragile and requires taking my time detangling with a high moisture product. Because detangling my hair requires patience I prefer to wash and condition my hair at the kitchen sink using Pantene Gentle Moisture with Coconut Extract Shampoo and Conditioner. Pantene provides the perfect amount of slip needed to finger detangle then easily comb through my hair.
Washing my natural hair at the kitchen sink allows me to take my time thoroughly cleansing my strands and scalp, while sectioning and detangling my hair without wasting water. It also allows me to rinse my hair in the coolest water I can tolerate without having to freeze to death in the shower.
When I take my time and use the right products, I love how my hair feels afterwards. Pantene and my wash day process leaves my hair feeling soft, moisturized and easy to style.
