Former Shortland Street star Shavaughn Ruakere has been named as the new local face of hair care brand Pantene.
The actress follows in the footsteps of Kiwi supermodel Rachel Hunter, who was the face of Pantene in the early 1990s. You may remember Rachel uttering the world-catchphrase, "It won’t happen overnight…but it will happen" in the brand's TV commercials.
Shavaughn grew up with Pantene and says she is thrilled to be partnering with them. "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.
"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!"
