Truth: There is no need to change brand. It is necessary to assess your hair needs on a day to day basis and use the products correctly.
Myth: Pulling out grey hair strands will cause another two to grow.
Truth: Completely false.
Myth: Finishing off your shower with a blast of cold water will give hair extra shine.
Truth: The reverse is true. Recent research shows that a body temperature rinse produces the best shine; I would recommend using the new Pantene Color Protect and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.
Myth: You can mend split ends with the right products.
Truth: You can temporarily stick them together but not cure. However, good hair care practices and the regular use of Pantene Split Ends Meander Serum can prevent split ends.
