Having two babies can really have a toll on a woman’s health, and as awful as it may sound, your hair will never be the same again. I have been struggling with hair fall, dryness, and loss of shine since I had my daughter 5 years ago, and after my second I really needed to turn to an expert.

Having tried oils and desi totkas I turned to Pantene Hair Fall Control, albeit a bit skeptical. I would not say that all my hair woes are solved in the past month of using Pantene but here are some things regular use has helped improve:

Texture: My hair feels softer and less stiff (for the lack of better word) after just shampooing.

Shine: I don’t apply conditioner in my roots since I am petrified on hair fall and feel it makes the roots soft. I do however use it on the ends twice a week and it does add some shine to my otherwise dull hair.

Hair Fall: Honestly, I cant say if my hair fall is genetic or some thing to do with my nutrition but I don’t think it is related to a shampoo. Pantene has not reduced my hairfall to 98% but there are visibly less strands in the shower, so I am hoping it might be a factor that has helped.

Styling: I am not one for getting a blow dry every day, but whenever I have to I make sure its after I have used a conditioner. I like the way my hair looks after a conditioned blow dry, there are less tangles to fight with and the look is softer.

Apart from using Pantene, here are some other things I have learnt while on my hair reinvention journey

  • Its especially important not to wash hair with hot water.
  • Avoid combing wet hair.
  • Castor Oil greatly helps with new hair growth.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is a great remedy for Dandruff.
  • Biotin tablets can also cover what your nutrition might lack for hair health.

Verdict: I am going to continue using Pantene but I also have to see what other factors (stress, diet) are affecting my hair. But at least my hair is looking and feeling beautiful.
