Curls with Pantene #WantThatHair + Walmart giveaway
This is a paid campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Pantene Pro-V. All pictures and opinions are my own, thankyouverymuch.
I’m a curl-fessional. I could curl my hair in my sleep. Of course, when I do it looks nothing like when a professional does it. The first time I worked with Pantene was when I filmed a video, alongside stylist to the stars, and fellow Venezuelan, Gabriel Samra (be sure to check it out here!). Gabriel curled my hair and I was just amazed at all the volume and bounce, not to mentioned, the beautiful definition he gave my curls. That’s why I was excited to find out that Gabriel and Pantene Pro-V had teamed up with Mexican beauty Maite Perroni to style her hair on her new video “Vas a Querer Volver,” which translates as “You’re going to want to come back,” (Take that, boys!). They have also released a How-To video to help us achieve Maite’s curls, which you can see below!
I was excited to try Pantene Pro-V’s Curl Perfection Collection, especially because I’m always on the look out for new products that can make my curly hair more manageable. I followed Gabriel’s instructions, and this is what I came up with:
I stated out with the No Crunch Curls Whip, which I applied after the shower. I was wondering why they would call this a “whip” instead of a “mousse,” but when you apply it is not foamy like mousse- it looks more like whipped cream. I almost wanted to eat it! The whip didn’t leave my hair crunchy, like most mousses, but it gave me nice, frizz-free curls. I used a one-inch curling iron the same way Gabriel suggested. This took me a looooooooong time, but I was happy with the curls.
The product I was most excited to try was the Pantene Pro-V Stylers Texturizing Sculpting Wax. I’d never tried hair wax before, and I found it very helpful when it came time to fight those annoying flyway hairs; and it also helped me define some of the looser curls. Be sure to warm it up before applying by running it between the palms of your hands, for flexible control. I can’t wait to see what other looks I can create with this wax!
I finished the look with the Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray for touchable, shiny hair, with no flyaways.
The finished look! I’m very happy with all the volume and soft curls! You can find all of these and more Pantene products at your local Walmart!
And as a special treat, I’m gifting one of my lovely readers a Pantene hair care bundle, along with a $100 Walmart gift card! Be sure to enter below, and may the odds be ever in your favor! This contest is only open to people in the U.S.
