Pantene Spa Inspired Hair Care - a giveaway


Let me just pause for a moment: A Spa Day...

Well, the idea sounds most appealing, but let's be honest I have neither the time nor the money to indulge in such frivolities right now. The closest I get to a spa treatment right now is the dishwasher facial - you know the one, where you open the door before the cycle's finished.

Add to that the fear I have of perfectly made-up twenty-somethings with ultra white teeth sneering disdainfully at me with comments like "you really should make more of an effort to moisturise more often" and "Really! When was the last time you..."  OK OK let's not share that much detail with you!

In actual fact, I don't really even like going to the hairdressers. Only because it usually means some inane girl is going to be chirruping away with mindless chatter the whole while. IF I WANTED SOMEONE TALKING INCESSANTLY IN MY EAR, I'D HAVE STAYED AT HOME WITH MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. I WANT SILENCE.

So you see, the idea of spa treatments in the privacy of my own bathroom really appealed to me. 

Pantene have just launched their new range of spa inspired hair care products, and I was lucky enough to trial them. Not only that my gorgeous friends, I'm giving you the chance to win a set of your own.




I used the Smooth and Sleek range, and tested out the shampoo; high performance conditioner; 24hr frizz fighter and the intensive treatment.  Read on to find out how you can win the same set.

I've been using the shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis for around 2 weeks now, and am exceptionally pleased with the results.  My hair is smooth and glossy and looks in great condition after using Pantene.  I adore the scent - even though it does make me walk around swishing my mane like some crazy thoroughbred horse. 

Often I don't dry my hair, but simply put it straight up after washing.  I kid myself it's because using the hairdryer is bad for the environment, but to be truthful I'm just lazy.  When I take my hair down at the end of the day, the smell is beautiful, and at times I have had to swat the other half away - I've noticed him sneaking surreptitious sniffs of my hair when he thinks I'm not looking...Odd.

The intensive treatment is a real shot in the arm - or should that be hair?  Leaving on for 5 minutes or so before rinsing gives my hair an amazing boost and I've been using this once a week in addition to the daily shampoo and conditioner.

In the past I haven't generally bothered with conditioner, finding they tend to leave my hair looking lank and dull.  Pantene Sleek and Smooth is quite the opposite.  It rinses out well, leaving you with that squeaky clean feeling.

Now, if the lovely product designers of Pantene could just invent some kind of bubble which would allow me that full spa experience, that would be totally perfect. Something which would give me 10 minutes peace and tranquility in the bathroom to enjoy the moment, without a 3 year old rattling on the door shouting "MUMMY I need a poo" or the postman hammering at the door with a recorded delivery, or the phone ringing...  That would be tickety-boo!

The Spa Inspired Care range is tailored to your hair's individual needs. Try taking the personalised product finder survey to find your perfect treatment.

If you'd like to win a selection of the products (shampoo; conditioner; frizz fighter and intensive treatment for smooth and sleek hair), please leave me a comment below stating why you'd like to win.

  7. I'd love to win as I could do with taking more time to pamper myself.
    My hair is very likely to suffer over the next few weeks due to the summer holidays, it will get torn out, turn grey and I don't know what else with both of my boys arguing, shouting "Muuuuuuuuummmmmmm he did that!" Muuuuuuuuuuuummmmmm no I didn't but he...!"
    Thanks for another fab giveaway.

  34. Sounds like you better not come near me or I'd be sneaking sniffs like your husband too! I was going to enter to win some Pantene, as you make it sound so seductive, but then I remembered I have loads of shampoo at the moment- shampoo can be added to the shoes and stationery as another fetish of mine. Maybe its something to do with the letter s?

  39. I'd love to enter please! I've noticed a change in my hair's texture since I hit my 30s, and am trying to find a product range that I like as much as the discontinued Pantene Time Renewal range - was gutted when they stopped selling it! The new Smooth & Sleek might be the answer...

    I've followed you on twitter & fb, and am about to tweet too!

    Thank you!

  40. lol you didn't have make me laugh! I feel exactly the same way at the thought of having to go to the hairdressers when there is so much to do at home and the thought of ever winning a spa day fills me with dread as i know I couldn't go and even if I did I would be worried about what I should be doing instead the whole time!!!
