4 Common Conditioner Myths Debunked

We’re about to bust open the biggest conditioner myths you hear everyday. Here are 4 common myths and the real truth on conditioner use. 

CONDITIONER MYTH #1 - You should only use conditioner at the tips

Your hair is exposed to damage from root to tip. So you definitely want to use conditioner the whole length of your hair. Not just on the ends.

It’s a total myth that only the ends of your hair need help. Every inch of your hair is exposed to damage. Think of the sun beating down on your roots! Or that ponytail holder you twist onto the ends. That’s why you need a strengthening conditioner from root-to tip if you want fuller hair from top to bottom, with less breakage and flyaways. Luckily, Pantene Conditioner has smart technology so it knows exactly what your hair needs, and where. Pantene conditioner micro-targets the weak spots -- and any excess rinses easily away. It helps reduce the stress of brushing and styling on your hair to make it even more resilient. So your hair is stronger against damage, and even more beautiful.

CONDITIONER MYTH #2 - Conditioner makes hair fall out


Every day we lose about 100 hairs. It’s natural! But a good conditioner can help put a stop to additional hair loss by reducing breakage from drying and styling stress.

Every day we lose about 100 hairs. It’s natural. (Your dog or cat isn’t the only one in the house who sheds!) But conditioner can help stop additional hair loss by protecting hair from breakage. Pantene has smart conditioner formulas that micro-target and reinforce weak spots. So you can dry and style, and style, and style to your heart’s content. Oh and if you DO happen to see more hair in your tub or brush after using conditioner – don’t worry! That’s because tangled hair traps ‘loose’ hairs. A good conditioner detangles hair, releasing those already shed strands. And if you’re worried that conditioning ingredients will ‘clog’ follicles and stop your hair from growing -- don’t be! Clinical research has shown that they do NOT interfere with the hair growth cycle. That’s just between you and your genetic code. So keep on protecting your beautiful hair from breakage with an amazing conditioner!

CONDITIONER MYTH #3 - Conditioner Makes Hair Greasy


Natural oils from your head make hair greasy over time. Using the WRONG conditioner can make hair instantly greasy. Luckily Pantene has the right conditioner for YOUR hair...with smart conditioner technology that gives your hair what it needs, then rinses away.

Grease alert! The natural oils from your head can build up in just a few days. And using the WRONG conditioner can INSTANTLY weigh down your hair -- like girls with fine hair should not be using a heavy conditioner. But the new Pantene conditioner comes in a tailored range: from rich conditioners for curly or damaged hair… to lightweight conditioners for thin or fine hair. And the Pantene PRO-V Formula has smart technology, so it knows what your hair needs and where. Any excess just rinses weightlessly away! That makes it the PERFECT conditioner for greasy hair. One more secret to oil-free conditioning is HOW you use it. Don’t just dump conditioner on top of your head. Instead, apply it to the tips and work your way back up towards the roots. Gently finger combing as you rinse it out. You’ll be amazed at how strong and beautiful it makes your hair.

CONDITIONER MYTH #4 - Conditioner Only Works In the Shower


Pantene Conditioners keep on working for you even after you rinse. The smart PRO-V Formula goes to the core and strengthens weak spots against all day long damage.

Some people think that as soon as you rinse out your conditioner, all the goodness grinds to a halt. But Pantene conditioners keep on working for you after your hair is dry. That’s because Pantene PRO-V Formula conditioners have smart technology that micro-targets weak spots. They work inside and out to protect wet hair against damage of towel drying, blow drying and styling. And as your hair dries, this advanced conditioning formula will smooth any rough spots– so it’s easier to get the look you want. Who wants more manageable hair?! Raise your hands! Plus the PRO-V Formula conditioner keeps working for you throughout the day. Super soft, strong, beautiful hair? Yes, please!
