#14DayChallenge with New Pantene

A couple of weeks ago I received a white box in the mail, which had two white bottles without any branding, and two bottles of the New Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner. I was given instructions to use the New Pantene on one side of my hair and these unknown contents on the other.

It was a funny thing to do, but I was really curious to know if there really be a magical difference. The texture and smell of the unknown bottle feels familiar, like a shampoo I might have used in the past. I don't use the same brand regularly, keep switching and trying. 

So the 1st wash had me trying the new Pantene on one side and the unknown brand on other. I cannot say that the side I washed with New Pantene had no hair fall at all, but compared to the other side, it was definitely lesser. 

When Sita was kidnapped, she left pieces of jewelry everywhere so that Ram could follow her route. I leave my hair everywhere I go. That's how bad my hair falls. I sit at work, I have a strand on the desk. I go to the loo, there is a strand on the pot. I sit to eat lunch, there is a strand on the tiffin, I play with my li'l one, there are a couple of strands on him. You get the gist.

The cause could be many, post pregnancy hormonal changes, stress, pollution, kiddo pulling my hair and what not. I try to oil my hair as regularly as I can, but that hardly helps. So I was looking forward to take the #14DayChallenge and see the difference.

Now before I tell what my experience was, you must understand what Hair-fall means. We shed hair everyday, it is very normal. We lose around 50-100 strands of hair daily, so if we see a few hair here and there in our rubber band, comb or brush or while washing; it's no need to panic. But when the amount of hair shedding is much more, obviously you cannot keep count but you will know because of your thinning scalp...then it is a problem that needs to be tackled.

What I am also trying to say is, that no brand or company can or will promise zero hair fall, because that goes against the nature of our body. I washed my hair with the New Pantene around 6 times in the fortnight (I cannot wash my hair daily, other ladies will empathise.) My hair-fall issue has not solved, but the condition has improved a lot.

I have observed that the strands of hair I used leave a trail of everywhere is not there anymore, which definitely is a significant improvement. On the down side, I am very prone to dandruff, and because I did not use an anti-dandruff shampoo for weeks, I had a bout of dandruff again. Maybe the Pantene Pro-V Anti Dandruff Shampoo will be a better choice for me.

I am taking up the #14DayChallenge as a part of  product review activity at BlogAdda in association with Pantene
