Last September Pantene launched their Beautiful Lengths campaign in Australia and asked Australian women to donate their hair to those who are battling cancer. My mother has been fighting cancer for almost 5 years so I know first hand the pain and suffering women go through when dealing with the illness. I told you more about my story in my donation post but needless to say I was happy to chop my hair off. Today I am excited to share with you where my hair went after it left my head.

Over the course of just a few months, the Beautiful Lengths Australia campaign received over 4000 ponytails from kind Australians. All that hair, including mine, was sent to wig makers who had the tough job of sorting, cleaning, dying and creating wigs. The result so far has been 500 spectacular wigs that are being distributed to cancer patients through Look Good Feel Better, an amazing non for profit who runs beauty workshops for cancer patients.

Last week (June 18) I was invited to be one of three guests to present the very first wigs. Look Good Feel Better, in partnership with Pantene, held a special Beautiful Lengths workshop for women who are doing it tough with their cancer treatments. Women aged from their 20s to 70s, all at different stages in their treatment and fight against the disease taking over their lives, and all incredibly strong and beautiful. I couldn’t have been more honoured to be part of something. Continue Reading

In some circles, Pantene is a dirty word. When I worked in my local hair dressing salon as a teenager I was always told that Pantene was the devil. I was lead to believe that all the things I hate about my hair are because I used Pantene. I have now learnt that is completely false but I still found myself not using Pantene very often. Why? Because it was just too heavy.

I have really fine, straight-ish, fly-away hair so that means it gets oily pretty quick and it always lacks volume. Whenever I used Pantene, my hair would just become weighed down. I loved the silky soft feel but it wasn’t worth it to have to wash my hair everyday.

The new Aqua Light range from Pantene has been launched for people exactly like me. Fine-haired lasses step forward. We have a saviour.

What I Say ….

  • Easily the first thing I notice is the fragrance. It is a more subtle version of the signature Pantene scent that I used to love so much, and still do.
  • The packaging is spot on. The shampoo is clear and the water-like images with bubbles on the labels add to the light feel. Continue Reading
