Pantene Ultimate 10

Universally speaking, every girl wants the same thing when it comes to hair: manageable, voluminous, shiny, strong, frizz-free, smooth, hydrated and healthy tresses. They’re the commandments of hair care! Luckily for us, Pantene’s new Ultimate 10 Collection is a one-product-fits-all deal.

I have naturally straight hair—which, I’ll admit, I take for granted at times. Since using Pantene’s Ultimate 10 shampoo, conditioner and BB cream, I’ve definitely amped up my hair routine. From soft beachy waves to bohemian braids, Pantene’s Ultimate 10 collection manages all my hair insecurities in hot and humid temperatures. The shampoo and conditioner offer a lightweight formula that’s gentle on locks but delivers a strong performance.

Instead of my usual hair cocktail (think: 3+ post-shower hair products), Pantene’s Ultimate 10 BB Cream (yes—beauty balm for hair; it’s divine!) is the cherry on top of perfecting any hairstyle in just one step. Just one pump of this lightweight leave-in formula can be used on damp or dry hair. It locks in moisture, tames flyaways, manages frizz and offers heat protection (among other solutions), transforming any and every look into a flawless one. You can see all ten days of hairstyles in the slideshow below, or on Pinterest!

Pantene is also giving one lucky Glitter Guide reader the Ultimate 10 Collection plus the new Sarah Potempa Jetsetter Mini (it’s not even out yet!). Simply leave a comment letting us know why you want to win. Update: the giveaway is now closed! Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to our winner, Mary Beth!

1 of 10
  • Day 1:
    Loose waves. I always curl my hair the night before so that when I wake up the next day, the curls are more natural/relaxed.

  • Day 2:
    Simple and straight.

  • Day 3:
    Soft curls.

  • Day 4:
    A miniature version of a bump. When I’m not in the mood for bangs, I love being able to pin them back.

  • Day 5:
    I twisted my hair and pinned it in the back for a more bohemian vibe.

  • Day 6:
    Forget sock buns; I live for a great top knot.

  • Day 7:
    Even though my hair is fairly short, I was able to sweep it to the side and pin it for a chic look.

  • Day 8:
    Some days a messy pony just works.

  • Day 9:
    Party in the front, sleek in the back. To style my long bob, I like to lightly curl two pieces in the front and leave the rest straight.

  • Day 10:
    Naturally wavy—some days it’s nice to just embrace the natural texture of my hair.

    I have thin straight long hair and would like to try the Ultimate 10 collection to see how it would work on my hair. I usually go a few days in between washes and have noticed that my hair has gotten healthier. But now that it’s summer and I’m dealing with sweating and humidity, I might have to wash everyday. I would LOVE to try the new Patene collection!

    I would love to win because I have naturally straight hair as well and this seems to work great for you! The summer humidity is definitely tough on my hair and this would be a big help. I especially would love to try a BB cream for hair, which I’ve heard great things about. Thanks!

  • Heather Jackson

    I recently had a baby and my hormones have been all wonky as my body readjusts itself. This includes my hair! It’s finally regrowing, albeit slowly. I’ve heard that Pantene is excellent for restoring healthy-looking locks. I’d love to give it a try!
