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.
