*This post is in partnership with Pantene.
I remember walking into CVS in 2015, praying that Pantene still had their Silver Expressions collection of shampoos and conditioners available. I searched high and low, went to multiple stores but came up empty-handed. I was researching Pinterest at the time when I was first starting on my grey hair journey and came across a Pantene Silver Expressions hair advertisement with model Susan Hersh. It was a beautiful photo of Susan and her gorgeous silver hair, and she soon became my inspiration to keep on the journey to silver hair.
I wasn’t the only one that was disappointed that Pantene discontinued their Silver Expressions line, but as I always say, there is a silver lining to this story.
Pantene has relaunched its Silver Expressions Purple Shampoo; Grey-haired women rejoice because your hair is about to get brighter, softer, and more manageable.
Not only is the Pantene Silver Expressions Purple Shampoo a brightening shampoo but also a hair toner for grey and color-treated hair. It’s paraben and silicone-free and helps neutralize excess yellow brought on by the environment and hot tools. The Pantene Silver Expressions Purple Shampoo is formulated for all hair types but explicitly made for grey, silver, and white hair. If you color or chemically treat your hair, it is still safe to use.
I have found that there are not a ton of options on the market that help moisturize grey hair and leave hair hydrated after shampooing. I love how vibrant the purple pigment is with the infused scent of the lotus flower. My hair feels clean, blow dries like a dream and looks beautifully bright.
I use the Pantene Silver Expressions Purple Shampoo two to three times a month or depending on how my hair looks. If I feel my hair needs an extra boost, I will switch it up to one a week. Each shampoo, I will let it sit for three to five minutes before rinsing to make sure my brassy or yellow areas on my hair get the full benefit of toning and brightening.
Now I don’t have to spend time rushing out to my local store I can order my Pantene Silver Expressions Purple Shampoo right from Amazon.
