FIRST LOOK: Sanaa Lathan Gets FAB As The New Face Of PANTENE!

Actress Sanaa Lathan is putting her great looks and envious hair to good use.  She's been named the brand new face of the Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion collection.  And TheYBF.com has the first look at her fresh-faced new photoshoot for her new gig....

Pantene's new Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection is getting all made up with a pretty face.  The 40-year-old "The Cleveland Show" actress, Sanaa Lathan, has just officially been named the new spokeswoman. 

As for how she keeps her hair looking naturally healthy with that flowing look she constantly rocks on the red carpet, she revealed, “It is important to me that I treat my hair with products that have naturally-derived ingredients, like Cassia in the Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection, which has made my hair so soft and strong.”

 

And since she doesn't just wake up with perfectly healthy hair, she admits all the styling has indeed ripped her mane apart.  So she dished on her fave products that work for her.

 

“Throughout my life, Pantene has been one of the few hair care brands that effectively address the specific needs of my hair texture," Sanaa says about the product line. "My hair is prone to dryness and my career does not help the situation! All of the styling and heat on set leaves my hair dull, lifeless and damaged. I need a shampoo and conditioner that nourishes my hair and I want to use more natural products. That is why I love Nature Fusion Moisture Balance shampoo and conditioner. It is great that, as a black woman, I can look to a brand like Pantene to provide my hair with the nourishment it needs.”

Gorgeous pics.

Here is the Link to Bey's

Here is the Link to Bey's newest Loreal Commercial where she states her race :black, french(white) and native american. Her mama is creole so Bey did inherit some of those genes even though you can't really see it. Solange, can't b/c she look straight BLACK! lol http://www.xxlmag.com/eye-candy/2012/01/beyonce-launches-new-loreal-comm...

Sanaa is gorgeous and classy. Thank God, she didn't something stupid of how she's indian and black. Beyonce needs to stop, she has long lacefront wigs in those commercials, solange hair is as coarse as it gets. Don't give me, Bey had a lot of hair, a lot of black girls had full, long black hair when they were little until they start messing with it.

Sanaa is not like Beyonce

Sanaa is not like Beyonce trying to water down her blackness. Sanaa mom does have native american in her but Sanaa is just too classy to even mention it. I saw a picture of her mom and her mom clearly looks like she has native in her she has long beautiful healthy hair just like Sanaa on that pic. That pic was taken some time ago though. If she wanted she could say that but she never mentioned it unlike Bey on that new commercial saying she is native and french w/ Tina being creole. It sure did not help her or Sol in the hair department they both have real kinky hair. I read about Sanaa mom in her Bio it says she has native in her and that she also use to act and perform back in the day. At least w/ Sanaa the proof is in the pudding! On another note It's just a thought. Since Bey has these new commercials claiming to be French and Native this will be how she explain to the public if Bluebell looks anything but black! If little Blue Bell comes out looking real different looking I'll know then Jay and Bey pulled a Micheal J so they won't have a child that looks like Jay Z. We shall see ! I am getting sleepy everyone have a good night!

who cares if Sanaa's mom has

who cares if Sanaa's mom has native American in her. She looks black. So, many black people are mixed up. It's like an ethiopian saying he/she is mixed, black people come in different skin color, hair texture, features. If any of your parent is not fully from another ethnic group then you are black, and it doesn't matter whether down the line, it's old news, and it shows insecurity. I've seen some non black girls who clearly have some black in them down the line cuz they don't look fully white/latina but they never claim anything black. Actually, they go out of their way to look more white. Oh, I forgot, everybody is whitewashed and want to be associated with anything white. White superiority.
anon's picture

Oh I wholeheartedly agree w/

Oh I wholeheartedly agree w/ you. I also feel the same as you about if you parent is not fully from another group ethnic group then by all means you are black. I was just saying I was so glad she was not trying to go there about the moms background like so many fully blacks are doing now. Like I said it is just another way for blacks to waterdown their blackness by saying just what Bey is doing on that new commercial. It is truly ridiculous. Like Meagan Good is now saying she has a jewish paternal grandmother and puerto rican background as well. I hope she knows mentioning having someone jewish in her background still won't help her get better acting jobs. Meagan, Bey and all the rest need to stop it. Both of them are 100%. I just applaud Sanaa for not going there.

Pantene products are not even

Pantene products are not even it. But if they work for Sanaa I say-Congratulations I thought she is natural. I don't believe Pantene is sulfate-free No shade. I am natural and have yet to try sulfate free yet. But I'm working on it.

And 2 all of ignorant bloggers: You DO have 2 wash ur weave (thts if it is weave....tht looks like her REAL hair). Maybe she WASHES her weave with Pantene. If u want the weave to last & NOT hold an ODOR, u should be washing it!!!! I guess some of u GHETTO bloggers just goin around smelling like must & burnt Blue Magic hair grease! Nasty Bastards!!!!!

This is nothing new. Beauty

This is nothing new. Beauty companies usually show people with extensions or wigs. Look at BE_YAWN_CE's hair color ads. She is wearing a WIG. LOL Nothing new here. But Sanaa Lathan bores me. I'm not a fan of anything she does. Most of her movies were long before my time and I don't care to look back on her work. Zzzzzzzzz. I prefer Zoe Saldana. She should have hair ads. Her hair is REAL. And she is more appealing and modern.

Hey Furious re:10:59 am -- I

Hey Furious re:10:59 am -- I thought you were going to comment on Sanaa and her 'finger-lickin' munchkin' fingers. ..And "talkin': wigs-n-things", what's up with your fave? You know, the 'stoner': Rihanna! Furious, was your fave at the 2011 AMAs? I just don't recall seeing her (meh, maybe it's me). Better still, where will she be come 8-PM EST, Feb 12, 2012?? What's that you now ask, Furious: "Where will Chris Brown be come 8PM EST, Feb12th, 2012?" Why Furious, how curious of you: such an intelligent, probing and thought-provoking question, you now ask!! Well, Furious, Chris Brown, come 8PM EST, Feb 12th, 2012, will be in attendance, up for several awards, and performing at the 8PM EST, Feb 12th, 2012 Gammys..!! Furious, I MUST say, this has been, by far, T-H-E most enlightening, entertaining, and engrossing discourse/exchange we've yet-had in some time. That said, I now look forward to seeing your comments come Feb 13th, 2012 regarding said "8PM EST, Feb 12th, 2012 Grammy Awards Show". Toodles, Furious.. ; - 9 (wink) X,Y,"and Z"

@ XYZ Remember when I told

@ XYZ Remember when I told you Rihanna was still with Chris. Well US WEEKLY finally caught on. You might want to run over there and read up. Rihanna is about to make a MOVE. Their anniversary is about to come. You know the night that WOMAN BEATER got exposed? LOL Now that his anger is under control. I see no reason why they can't come back together. I hope you don't get too upset...lol

@Furious re:12pm, Jan 18th

@Furious re:12pm, Jan 18th -- Listen, I just hate to break it to you - it pains me so, but someone has to: Chris Brown ain't thinking bout Rihanna. He's too busy getting settled-in, in that NEW $1.5-Million home he just bought. And you've gotta know, the 'Keruche-chick' is now decorating it..."just so", too! Two, MORE happier - in love - 'love-birds', with NOT a care in the world, ensconced and nestled in their love-nest - you'll be hard-pressed to find! ..So while Chris and HIS NEW LOVE are soaking, glowing and bathing in the very 'lap of luxury', your fave is, once again, spinning stories 'bout her buying multi-million dollar homes. It's just TOO bad she can't be as creative with producing/song-writing, or even having an original idea to claim as her own. Instead, she goes around thieving, stealing, and jackin'. You don't believe me? Well, go ask Dave LaChapelle. Phillip Paulus is 'bout to get paid too..!! (And talkin' bout "The Hard", and "The Pressed"..) Matt Kemp and Rihanna are STILL together. But this time, they're 'creeping' around. They were, just over the New Years, pictured in London - TOGETHER, and again in L.A.(I have the links(pictures). I'll post 'em later). You see, Furious, Matt CAN'T afford to be too closely associated with Rihanna. He's not even 'claiming' her. She's nothing now more to him, than a simple "jump-off"! ..You wanna know why? Well, because he doesn't want a replay of the 2010 MLB season. You know, the one where he SLUMPED, BOMBED, and his career almost came to an end. The one in which he was pictured being "led all-about" with Rihanna yanking his leash when he was disobedient; remember? Don't worry, come the 2012 MLB season, I won't let the Dodger fans on those 'Dodger Blogs' forget; this is MY promise to you: when I'm done, come the end of MLB 2012, they're going to chase her outta L.A. ..TRUST..!!

Celebrities tend to use

Celebrities tend to use pieces because of heat damage....if you notice, models and actresses may be styled three to five times a day. That can be a lot on the hair, so they add pieces so that they are able to protect their natural hair. Toya tweeted a pic of her real hair which was long and healthy, but she still wears weaves...weaves dont take your hair out! If it is done correctly then your hair should grow, not fall out...I went natural and cut my perm out.. I then wore sew ins until my hair grew back out...in which it did and now I am wearing my hair

DITTO!! Weave does NOT take

DITTO!! Weave does NOT take your hair out! Neither do braids! If they do, fire your stylist. I keep a weave, but it's all big fro fun under there. Not a chemical in sight.
