With the rise of the plantito and plantita trend last year, Filipinos have definitely fallen in love with plants not just as decor but also as a holistic part of being able to go through 2020.

Plant-powered products like Herbal Essences have definitely proven their position in the haircare game – with its power of plant-based ingredients and plant power solutions, it can give you the best version of your strands. Herbal Essences recognized how more and more people are taking interest in nurturing plants.
So, to celebrate the powerful impact of plants, not just on the surroundings, but also on how people take good care of their hair, the brand concluded 2020 with the #PlantPowerInEveryShower giveaway. Check out the amazing foliage and poses from some of the best entries for Herbal Essences #PlantPowerInEveryShower giveaway.
Alexandrea shared on her Instagram post that the absence of hair care treatments has made her notice how dull and dry her hair is. “Thankfully, I discovered @herbalessencesph on @lazadaph, and it miraculously changed the way I take care of my hair. After weeks of usage, my hair looked and felt hydrated, smooth, and shiny. Not only that, but I also received a lot of compliments on my hair — what I use, and how I take care of it. My answer is simple, Herbal Essences Coconut Milk! I truly appreciate that it does not contain harmful chemicals that damage one's hair! This will surely bring the #PlantPowerInEveryShower.”
Though 2020 has enhanced the growing community of plantitos and plantitas, taking care of plants have since been a lifestyle for many. The #PlantPowerInEveryShower giveaway has unfolded numerous entries that showed how modern Filipinas are living testimonies of the plantita life, and it’s more than just a tita thing.
Plant Power Revolution with Herbal Essences Last December 21, 2020, Herbal Essences held an insightful live stream on their Facebook page with Maxene Magalona, and the Principal Scientist for Scientific Communications of all P&G’s haircare brands across Asia-Pacific, Saint where they talked about three main points on how humans have benefitted from the power of plants: In the home, for the body, and in the shower.
From her first plant to now a collection of foliage inside her home, Maxene shared how plants have brought an element of life and uplifted her spirit when she faced tough times. Now that more people are invested in giving back to nature, Maxene shares she’s delighted with the piqued interest, “When we take care of ourselves, our hair, our skin, it's just like how we take care of our plants. We need to take care of our well- being as well, starting from our hair down to our toe. That's why I’m grateful for Herbal Essences because it puts me into that good mood [whenever I take a shower].
Saint also demonstrated a quick experiment where he applied the Herbal Essences White Strawberry & Sweet Mint Shampoo to one side of a leaf. He proceeded to blow-dry the leaf to visualize how damaging heat can be to the hair. In just seconds, the bare leaf side immediately dried up, while Herbal Essences protected and kept the other side look untouched. You can watch the rest of the Plant Power Revolution via this link.
