Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip | Product Pick #16

by Jamie Sanford on May 25, 2017

Check out all of my Product Picks here. If you want to see all of the products I’ve reviewed (not just the ones I like), click here for Reviews.

During a random span of time a few years ago, I won a few different contests online. One of them was a Twitter giveaway of Pantene products, and today I want to talk about what has become one of my favorite hair products of all time.

Pantene Silky Moisture Whip

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have perhaps noticed that I change my hair color pretty regularly. My stylist highlights my hair and sorts out my roots on occasion, but the rest of the time, my hair is refreshed in whatever color I’m going for that day with Arctic Fox haircolor. The Arctic Fox is really moisturizing and conditioning, but obviously, the hair that has been highlighted is a bit damaged.

I had forgotten about the Silky Moisture Whip until I cleaned out my bathroom cabinet with all of the hair products. I immediately moved it to the front and started using it, and noted an immediate difference.

After towel-drying my hair, I squeeze the mousse-like product into my hair and brush through for full coverage. I then air-dry or blow-dry, and follow-up with heat spray before using the Tyme Iron to straighten and/or curl my hair. The difference was much greater than I would have expected, and especially for a drug store product that has an incredibly reasonable price.

The official product description is as follows:

Pantene’s Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip contains a Moisture Protection complex that acts like hair’s natural lipid layer to help: leave hair feeling moisturized for up to 48 hours, protect hair from heat styling damage in just one use and regulate hair’s natural moisture and gives silky hair that shines.

The Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip is available on Amazon. If you feel like your hair is lacking in moisture and shine, I highly recommend trying it out.

Lots of people that I know sent me this link about a Frank Lloyd Wright house for sale in Minnesota. I spent a bit of time trying to sort out how I could afford it.

I have been a Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast for many years. Not only was Frank Lloyd Wright a genius, but his life was entertaining and scandalous, to say the least. This Ken Burns documentary about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright is completely worth the watch time.

I was very excited to take an informal tour of the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world, at Florida Southern College, while visiting Lakeland, Florida, back in February. Let’s take a look at the most famous of all of these buildings, the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel. I will post about some of the other buildings in a future post.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to go inside! I’ve seen some images that are beautiful. We will book a proper tour for the next time we are there.

There are signs near almost all of the buildings to indicate that they have gone through a restoration process.

This is the back side of the building from a different location on campus. It’s clearly the dominant building in the collection.

Stairs leading up to the back of the chapel, showcasing the Esplanades, a series of cantilevered, covered walkways that are numerous on the campus.

A door at the back of the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel – you can see some of the classic Frank Lloyd Wright molded concrete.


Another look at the molded concrete.

I highly recommend stopping at Florida Southern College to take in the beautiful architecture.

Happy trails!

You know that I’ve been sick for too long when I start blogging about cough drops.

Will and I have been going through the most intense double illness that we’ve experienced in the 14 years that we’ve been living together. After a round of antibiotics and inhalers, I am still using cough drops at the office to keep myself from coughing all day long. I have been using and enjoying Halls Triple Soothing Action cough drops, in the Honey Lemon flavor.

Today, 5 or so days after I popped the first one in my mouth, I noticed that there is motivational messaging on the wrappers!

These are so cute. In addition, I’ve noticed now that they have a pretty wide variety of phrases, so it isn’t the same on each wrapper.

Add this to the list of tiny things that a manufacturer can do that is so charming to the customer. I wish I had noticed before, I’m sure I would have enjoyed the bit of brightness during my sick days.

Congratulations to Halls on this great addition.

During our mini Floridian road trip, our first stop was Sanibel Island, Florida. We were largely there to spend time in the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, but as soon as we turned onto Periwinkle Drive (the main thoroughfare of Sanibel), I wanted to stop everywhere! We traveled to Sanibel many times when I was younger, and I would love nothing more than to make another trip there soon.

I pulled into the parking lot when we approached She Sells Sea Shells, a Sanibel Island mainstay.

She Sells Sea Shells has been in business since 1976!

Featured on the sign is a Junonia shell, a holy grail for shellers.

So. Many. Products! You can see more Junonia shells, real ones, in the display case on the left.

There seems to be endless shell art – the creativity is impressive.

Christmas tree ornaments of all shapes and sizes are available.

These are flowers made from shells!

I picked up one of these and was completely surprised at how robust and solid it felt! (Related – I purchased a beautiful Christmas tree ornament that was a mermaid made of shells, and she made it all the way home, in my suitcase, intact!)

Of course, there is a huge section of open stock shells in the store.

So many options!

I went shelling a bit on a Sanibel beach later that day, and I didn’t find anything that looked like this, so I can see why people might want to buy them.

Do you need decor for your beach house or shore house? Look no further!

There were mobiles all of the store. I don’t know how you get one of those home with you, but I find them incredibly charming.

One more wider shot of the store. If you ever find yourself on Sanibel, you MUST stop at She Sells Sea Shells.

Happy trails!
