Shaun White Shares his Hair Secret
Shaun White may have won a gold medal at Vancouver 2010 for snowboarding, but just as many people are curious about his flowing red hair as the double McTwist 1260 he landed at Cypress Mountain.
People magazine posed the question to White, who shared his hair care routine which involves “an awesome new product – called water. ” White said he just uses hotel shampoo and conditioner every other day, otherwise it gets huge. Two days of snowboarding with a helmet on also helps as his hair “looks better dirtier.”
As a member of Team Curly, White has the all right moves when it comes to handling big hair. Since curly hair needs extra moisture to maintain its bounce and avoid looking big and frizzy, washing curly hair every other day makes it easier to style.
White has inked several endorsement agreements, including Burton Snowboards and Red Bull, since his first Olympic gold medal win in 2006. With his thick mane of curly red locks and second gold medal, hair companies may soon be knocking on White’s door to see if he’ll ride the wave for their latest hair care innovation.
- Shaun White has been keeping busy since the Olympics including posing for the cover of Rolling Stone. His Shaun White 4 Target line also launched its spring collection including denim, hooded sweatshirt, jackets, tees, and shirts for boys and young men. Prices range from $8-$35.
- Shaun White recently posted a Facebook photo of himself looking at a sign that read “All Haircuts, $5.00″ with a caption: “I don’t know…..is it time?” Around 4,000 people responded with most begging Shaun to resist the tempation to get rid of his signature look. Do you think it’s time?
