How to use:
This is like an after wash product – once you wash the hair, take a little of the Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement and rub it well within your palms and apply it all over the hair. After this process, dry your hair with hair dryer or either ways. Also, this can be used before combing the hair and no need to rinse your hair.

My experience:
Being a blogger, I keep on going for events and also being a mom, I pick up and drop kids to their extra-curricular activities classes and due to the traffic, it’s been a challenge of being punctual and this results me to take auto’s, sometimes my two-wheeler instead of driving my 4-wheeler. Commonly we use to move out with loose hair or a pony tail, after the travel, when I am back home, the first thing I do is comb my hair gently and tie it. While combing I could experience the hair fall, my hair being rough. But later after using this Pantene Pro-V Oil replacement, my hair remains soft, since long time.

The experience towards the savory heat of fiery foods and the feast on traditional Mexican food was awesome. Apart from that their Mixologists have crafted three unique cocktails – Amigo, Diablo and Troublemaker to a give a sweet, smoky and authentic Mexican twist.

And this time at Hard Rock Café was more memorable to me, as I don’t consume liquor – I had non-alcoholic version of Trouble Maker, I loved it to the core. I could feel the spiciness, sweetness as they have infused jalapeno peppers to it.
