Hair Notes: I didn’t know…


…just watching the Apprentice (yay!) and I was doing my hair for the night. I glanced over the ingredients and I saw Panthenol. It sounds like Parthenon, which reminded me of Classical Civilisation A-Level. So I googled it.

and lo and behold:

Panthenol does not “nourish” hair. It coats it to make it slippery.

And to think, this was in my At One Leave In Conditioner.

What the fuck? Never again, mate.

    • Apparently, it is similar to B5 but it is marketed as a vitamin, when it has no nourishing qualities whatsoever. It just gives shine and makes the hair ‘slippery’ so it is easier to comb. Scary.
