Embracing My “Hairitage”

Morgan Angelique Owens,

Chief Creative Beauty Consultant 

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with all thing’s beauty. I blame my mother. I grew up being the only girl and watching my mother in awe when she got dressed.  My mother has the most beautiful full, long and thick hair. I was blessed as a little girl to have even thicker and longer hair than here. I must be admit however, wash day was not my favorite. To this day I am very tender headed. My mother taught me my hair was a source of pride and to always take care of it, embrace it and celebrate it. This was a challenge for me when I was younger because I went to schools where girls did not have the same hair texture as me. I felt different. My hair was thick and curly compared to their straight, wavy hair. 

However, over time I learned to love my hair and my “Hairitage”.   I love my hair texture, I love my curls and I love it straight. I often get asked what my heritage is because of my skin tone and hair. My family “heritage” is comprised of a little bit of everything and I think that makes it truly beautiful. I grew up in a household where my mother kept my hair routine and her’s simple. My grandmother Pauline was a hair dresser so my “Hairitage” runs deep. My grandmother’s hair was also so chic. Even in her later years I remember going to her retirement community and helping my mother wash it and set it on rollers. It was apart of her self care beauty routine, even if she wasn’t going anywhere. She always said, “If you look good, you feel even better.” 

My mother taught me the necessity of a great beauty routine: cleanse your hair really well, condition it, protect it and give it some love. Pantene Nutrient Blends Miracle Moisture Boost Shampoo and Conditioner does all of these things for me. The smell even reminds me of wash days with my Mother, the scent of her perfume in the air as she embarks on the difficult challenge of detangling my hair. Detanging my hair is easy now with the great ingredients around in the Rose Water Nutrient Blends Collection. This collection focuses on soothing and hydrating dry and brittle hair – which for me happens when I’m constantly working out, shooting content or putting too much heat on my hair.

I encourage you all to try out this fantastic, luxurious and nourishing hair love collection from Pantene. You can find Miracle Moisture Boost Collection with Rose Water products at your local Walgreens. Pick up the collection and let me know how you like it, tell me about your “Hairitage” and practice some great self love hair care.
