Is charcoal the new black? Seriously, this past year, or probably even longer, all you hear about is charcoal this, charcoal that. It’s in toothpaste, cleansers, deodorants, and so much more. In fact, Casey [my husband] uses this charcoal face wash, and I recently got this charcoal face mask that has rave reviews.
Today, we’re going to focus on activated charcoal shampoo and conditioner. When I saw that Pantene came out with a new Charcoal Collection, I was intrigued. I’m someone who tries to go as long as possible in between washes. On average, I wash my hair once every five days. So with that being said, it’s really important that when I wash my hair, I use something that truly cleans my scalp and refreshes my hair.
Honestly, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with Pantene’s Charcoal Collection, but I’m happy to report that I’m pretty impressed! The texture is just like regular shampoo and conditioner. For some reason, I imagined it to be a thick, pasty consistency, but it wasn’t. It smells delicious, and leaves your hair feeling smooth and conditioned.
I’ve had major issues in the past with clarifying shampoos leaving my scalp and hair super dry, and that’s not the case with the Pantene charcoal collection AT ALL. Both the shampoo and conditioner are formulated without parabens, silicone, and dyes. The Pantene Charcoal Collection shampoo focuses on removing dirt, oil, and other impurities from your hair, while the conditioner is a lightweight, nutrient-rich way to add shine.

Gets Rid of the Gunk
Gunk: Build Up. Scalp Oils. Styling Products. Dry Shampoo. Dirt.
Unlike skin, hair does not have a built-in purification system. Activated charcoal is known for its cleansing and purifying properties.
Activated charcoal absorbs impurities, like magnetic attraction. Toxins are pulled out of your scalp and hair naturally, so you don’t have to worry about having a negative reaction.
I have extra dry skin in general, including my scalp. Activated charcoal can help heal itchiness, dandruff, and redness. Whether you’re oily or dry, using an activated charcoal shampoo like Pantene Charcoal can help balance and heal your scalp. Obviously if you have any major concerns regarding your scalp, it’s always best to see your physician.
Because activated charcoal is so purifying, your hair will be left lighter and bouncier when using a charcoal shampoo and conditioner. Pantene’s Charcoal Collection Shampoo and Conditioner brought life back into my hair!
Have I piqued your interest in trying a charcoal shampoo and conditioner?! Just be aware, charcoal products can range in price, some being pretty expensive. Pantene’s Charcoal Collection Shampoo and Conditioner is effective AND affordable. I highly recommend you try it!
