finally! a haircare co admits the tv ad curls are from an iron!

Look at how Pantene says to get "organic curls" like in the Pantene commercials!

http://www.pantene.com/en-US/article...jspx?src=pgeds

This step was the most telling.

Step 3:
Section dry hair and use a medium-barreled curling iron to get waves that are defined but not too tight. Hold the iron vertically and curl each section by wrapping the hair around the iron and leaving the ends lose for an undone look. Pin curls into place as you remove the iron to allow them to cool and set. Spray curls with a Pantene Classic Hairspray-Flexible Hold for hair that has movement and staying power.

At least they admit it, but arrrgghhhh! Do they know what image they portray as to how curls should look?

LOL, that model had naturally curly hair and they straightened it, curled it, and brushed it out with the blowdrier again to get her "curly" look.

They don't seem to think there's a problem with their methods - not hiding it or they wouldn't have posted a "how to" video about it. I think that type of styling is really common with stylist who have no idea what to do with naturally curly hair.

So to get "organic" curls, we're supposed to blow dry, use a curling iron, then brush out and blow dry AGAIN?

My hair is cringing just thinking about that!

No, seriously. I see so many tutorials on how to get curls and a lot of them require flat ironing hair and using a curling iron. Stupid if you ask me.
Cleanser: Liquid Castile Soap diluted in a foaming soap dispenser
Rinse:
ACV rinse
Detangler/Conditioner:
Oyin Handmade Greg Juice or Juices and Berries
Stylers: Botticelli Botanicals Styling Mudd, KCCC, Honey Rinses and BRHG, Crack Leave-in Hair Cream when straightening

Tools: Silk pillowcase, Floursack towels, Jersey T-Shirts, Wide Tooth Comb, Velecta Paramount TGR-VQX Hair Dryer (for when I straighten) and BaByliss PRO Ionic Rollabout Hard Hat Dryer
I sent the link to my DH and told him this was proof of their methods. I've been telling him for years that was the case.

He made the mistake of asking me a few years ago why my curls didn't look like that.

I guess it's refreshing to see a company 'fessing up to its methods. Interesting interpretation of the word "organic" though.
as if air-drying/diffusing my hair curly doesn't take long enough, now i'm supposed to section it, blow dry it, flat iron it (i would have to in order to reduce the volume), and then curl it with an iron? HAHAHAHAHA. they're so funny.



i particularly loved the part of the video where they sprayed a curl enhancer on her damp hair and then blew it dry. wtf?

Ridiculous! The model's hair was beautiful before the stylist processed it. And why use a curl enhancing spray and THEN straighten the hair? And THEN use a curling iron? Someone should probably be fired for that.
2b/cFi, low density, normal porosity, high elasticity

Low-poo
: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
Conditioner
: Suave Naturals (whatever scent I have on hand)
Styling
: Paul Mitchell Round Trip, Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray

I'm a hair minimalist: the less time I spend on my hair, the better.

That's why none of our hair will EVER look like that!!! Why cant they show natural curl for what it IS!!!!
