Pantene Gold

Over the summer, I’ve mostly been wearing my hair in it’s natural curly state. In the past, it’s been a struggle for me to embrace my natural curls for this long, but I’m doing it.

However, they have revamped the line with new products and new name; Pantene Gold.

A few weeks ago, while dragging myself to Walgreens for medicine and cough drops, I picked up a few products from the line. Walgreens was having a buy 2 get 1 free deal that I couldn’t pass up. So, I picked up the co-wash, leave-in detangling milk, and the hydrating oil. After trying them for awhile, I think it’s time to share my results and opinions. Keep reading to get my honest opinion of these products from the Pantene Gold collection.
