My favorite shampoo

PanteneÆ is for hair so healthy is shines, right? And that’s why I ‘ve been using it and loving it for 20+ years! My sister and I loved PanteneÆ so much that my mom would give it to us in our Christmas stockings.

As a kid, PanteneÆ was for special occasions, but as a grown up it’s a hair necessity. I have a lot of hair. It’s thick and sturdy and really long. I’ve tried lots of conditioners, but PanteneÆ is the only one that allows me to run my fingers through my wet hair in the shower. It’s a conditioning miracle, I tell you! The new Aqua Light formula leaves my hair feeling lighter and lovelier than ever. Have you tried this yet?

Andy and I like love to travel, I even do a series called Creating Really Awesome Free Trips. Andy’s easy; he can use any shampoo/conditioner no problemo. Not me, I’m a picky pain in the butt. I need my PanteneÆ conditioner.

I typically use hotel shampoo and bring this little blue travel size container of conditioner (the one in the picture above). It’s 3 oz and can safely hang out in my carry-on. That way I can have shiny, lovely hair in vay-cay pictures! This is a pic of Andy and I in Nantucket last summer, and my hair is oh so shiny thanks to my pal, PanteneÆ (and the sun). Check out that shine!

    I actually just bought some of the Pantene E for my hair. I have very thin hair. I’m talking so thin I have bald spots. Here’s hoping it helps I envy those with thick hair.
