Pantene Main Img 1000x750With fewer opportunities to visit the salon for hair maintenance, its never been more important to nourish and protect your mane from home. But if youre busy juggling work, kids, pets or the worries that come along with a global pandemic, it may feel easy to let self-care slide and split ends take over.Thats where baobab comes in.

What is baobab?

You may have heard of argan and marula oilsboth native to Africabut baobab is probably a little less familiar. A type of deciduous tree that grows primarily in Eastern Africa (including Tanzania), the baobab tree is locally known as the tree of life because it flourishes in dry climates. How? By storing huge amounts of water in its trunk. This unusual ability means it can survive decades without rain and continue to produce edible leaves and fruit that are used in local herbal remedies.Pantene Img2 1000x750

Why is baobab great for dry hair?

Its not just the tree itself that has the amazing ability to withstand harsh, dry climates. Baobab seeds are rich in vitamin E, which may help to soothe and hydrate dry skin and hair.Cold press the seeds to distill their vitamin Erich essence, blend it with antioxidants, strengthening lipids and pro-vitamin B5 (a Pantene signature) and youve got Pantenes latest Nutrient Blends collection: Hydrating Glow with Baobob Essence. Thanks to the addition of baobab, the lines hero ingredient, the shampoo, conditioner and serum provide intense, long-lasting hydration for even the most parched hair. Plus, the collection is entirely free of sulfates, parabens, dyes and mineral oil.Pantene Img3 1000x750
