Kelsea Ballerini, Pantene’s Healthy Hair Ambassador, Reveals the Transformative Product that Boosts Her Confidence and Enhances Her Well-being

If Kelsea Ballerini’s hair could express itself verbally, it would undoubtedly convey a sense of appreciation for the significant trim she underwent approximately a year ago, as she discloses exclusively to PEOPLE in anticipation of a gathering to commemorate Pantene’s recent advancements. Designated as a Healthy Hair Ambassador for the brand in October, the country music sensation showcased her lob on social media in July. Although she described the decision as impulsive, it was clearly deliberate, as she believes in the energetic significance that hair holds.

“Consider how many inches your hair grows in a year—just a couple, right? Reflecting on that, I thought about the experiences my hair has witnessed, and I decided it was time for a change,” Ballerini shares. This decision is one among several purposeful steps she has taken as part of what she refers to as her “healing era.” This transformative period has involved various measures, from therapy to reevaluating her workout routine.

“I’ve really subjected my hair to a lot over the past decade. I’m implementing all sorts of self-care practices, and my hair needed some attention. It was as if my hair said, ‘Now it’s my turn,’ and I thought, ‘Fair enough,'” adds Ballerini.

Upon concluding her fall tour, Kelsea Ballerini initiated a regimen focused on promoting healthy hair. Reflecting on that period, she notes, “[That] was truly when I needed the most assistance to begin restoring it to a more favorable condition.”

Being not just the face but, in fact, the representative for a brand comes with its advantages. Ballerini points out the perk of having early access to the upcoming products from the brand.

As Kelsea Ballerini recognized the need for repairing her hair, she turned to Pantene for support, opting for the Pantene Pro-V Miracles Miracle Bond Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, along with the Pantene Miracle Rescue Deep Repair Conditioner containing Melting Pro-V Pearls. These products are part of Pantene’s latest Pro-V Miracles collection, which includes other systems like the breakage-reducing Infinite Lengths with Biotin and Collagen and the curl-enhancing Curl Define and Shine with Coconut + Shea.

The Miracle Rescue with Melting Pro-V Pearls collection also features an intensive repair mask, utilizing pearls infused with a concentrated blend of nutrients that aid in establishing new bonds in damaged hair. According to Ballerini, this deep-conditioning treatment serves as a multi-purpose solution, stating, “When you get out of the shower, you’re like, oh yeah, I feel better about my entire life.”

She’s not only impressed with the efficacy of the products but also enamored with their texture and delightful fragrance. Ballerini shares, “Since childhood, I’ve cherished the experience of strolling through beauty aisles at Walmart, Walgreens, or Kroger, smelling everything. The scent of Pantene, in particular, holds an iconic and nostalgic appeal for me.”

Currently, Ballerini approaches her hair care routine with great dedication. She reveals, “Over the past 12 weeks, I’ve exclusively relied on these products. I’m striving for a routine of two washes a week. It has required some adjustment, but the biweekly wash routine feels satisfying at the moment.”
