The Charcoal Shampoo That’s Changing Everything


I’m hard on my hair. I feel like I didn’t use to be, but over time I’ve definitely stepped up the intensity! I try not to wash my hair as much as I did in the past, but that doesn’t mean the washing is any less important. It just means that which shampoo I use is that much more important, which is why a great charcoal shampoo can make all the difference.

Each morning on the days I don’t wash my hair I add more product to it… Like an entire can of dry shampoo, touch up with a curling iron, and add in more texture and hair spray. So by day three, when I am actually washing my hair, the water repels off it or it least it feels that way. ha! I’ve had THE hardest time washing my hair with ordinary shampoo after three days of product and heat. I felt like I could never get it clean and that the shampoo wouldn’t lather properly. Shampooing my hair 2-3x’s in a single shower was normal… but then I tried Pantene Pro-Vs new Charcoal line for the first time and everything changed. I can literally go a full 2-3 days before the situation gets dire!

My 3 Day Test…

When I heard about Pantene Pro-V’s new line of clarifying charcoal shampoo & conditioner I said SIGN ME UP! I’ve been a long time fan of the benefits of activated charcoal and was excited to try it on my hair. I use charcoal face masks and I always keep charcoal supplements with me when I travel because they help upset stomachs and detoxify your liver after one too many glasses of champagne! 😉 So needless to say, I was already a fan and hoped maybe this would be the solution to my shampoo issue. I was pleasantly surprised.

I used this shampoo and conditioner for the first time after 3 days of not washing my hair. We are talking workouts, dry shampoo, curl and re-curled, texture spray, and a helmet of hairspray. I wanted to really test it out before telling you about it… I mean, someone’s gotta do the work, am I right?! 😉 Anyway, I really dirtied up my hair to put it to the test and said “BRING IT ON”. Guys. It lathered my whole head with just 2 pumps of shampoo and I didn’t have to wash my hair in the shower more than once. I was shocked. The active charcoal just soaked up all the product and dirt which made it easy to finally clean my hair. And, scouts honor, I’ve been using it ever since! I love the way my hair feels right out of the shower and how nice it lays once it’s blown out. Also, I think it stays cleaner longer… which I LOVE!

Seriously, I can not recommend this shampoo enough. I’m always trying out new hair products, but this one I will be repurchasing!

    • Charcoal tablets! I get them at the drug store… You can take them if you ate something too spicy or they are great for your liver!

    • Amanda, YES! It’s safe for color treated hair and I’ve been using it for the past few weeks. I get my hair colored every 8 weeks!
