What did a normal day look like in the life of Mad Maven before quarantine you ask? Allow me to paint you a visual. Most days I’d wake up and get dressed to workout for an hour with my trainer. HIIT training and boxing is usually what we do, which means lots of sweating. Now that I’ve been spending more time at home, I’ve adapted to working out at home now.
Other days, I’d have photoshoots where I’d completely produce, style, and model which means LONG hours, so when I’m finally done for the day, it’s ME time. First thing I do when I get home is immediately remove my makeup and take a hot shower. Staying home has given me more time to perfect my self care routine which means thoroughly washing and conditioning my hair.
That is where the Nutrient Blend Collection by Pantene comes in. The Fortifying Damage Repair with Castor Oil Shampoo cleanses, strengthens and protects, while the Castor Oil Conditioner nourishes and restores the shine back to my hair. This collection is sulfate free, paraben free and free of any dyes or mineral oils! That’s right! 0% of any harmful ingredients!!! Castor oil has so many benefits, not only is it rich in vitamin E, but the oil comes from seeds of the Ricinus Communis plant that’s grown in India. It’s not often that I would even have the time to take a FULL shower that includes washing my hair, but when I do… I make sure to treat myself to the best products for my hair. Next, I’ll throw on a face mask, wear my most cozy bath robe, light some candles and cozy up in bed or on the couch. Self care to me, is the art of doing NOTHING, especially after a full day. I’ve always loved how candles have the ability to transform a mood, it’s almost impossible to not feel cozy in a room full of candlelight.
For those non-wash days, the new Pantene Waterless Collection saves my life every time! I have platinum blonde hair, so the Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist really gives my hair a good refresh without drying it out. I use this product as a quick pick me up to bring moisture back to my ends which helps prevent breakage.
Remember it’s okay to SLOW DOWN. I think we’ve all learned a valuable lesson in this crazy time we are currently experiencing. Stop and take a breath, take the time to love yourself and your loved ones. You can grab the Pantene Waterless Collection & the Nutrient BlendsCollection online. Stay Safe out there, but more importantly STAY HOME! Your hair and planet will thank you for it. Sending love and candle light.
