The new kiwi face of Pantene

Kiwi television star Shavaughn Ruakere has partnered with Hair Care Brand  Pantene in New Zealand.


The former Shortland Street actress is the latest Kiwi ambassador for Pantene, the brand that helped launch the career of Rachel Hunter in the early ‘90s. The supermodel was cast in a television advertisement that featured the famous catchphrase, “It won’t happen overnight…but it will happen”.

For Ruakere, who first found fame on iconic children’s television show What Now, becoming the face of Pantene is an honour. “I grew up with Pantene, love it, and always trust it to take good care of my hair,” she says. “I’m so excited to be representing such an innovative brand with a new formulation that makes it even better than before.”

Now it is Ruakere’s silky and shiny hair that has the starring role as she promotes Pantene’s new and changed formulation, which contains revolutionary technology Keratin Damage Blockers  to help defend hair against irreversible oxidative damage.

“Working as an actress can be tough on my hair with constant styling, so the new formula in Pantene to help prevent damage is really important to me,” says Ruakere. “It helps my hair stay shiny, clean and lightweight despite the amount of product and heat styling I put it through. After one wash, I can feel the difference!”

Jane Wecker, Pantene brand manager, says NZ women have had to compromise on damage protection with a lightweight feeling for a long time. “We have taken on board the feedback from Kiwi women and have launched this breakthrough formulation in response,” she says. “We believe the new formulation delivers on its promise to protect hair while still leaving it feeling healthy and lightweight.”
