Shaun White's Hair Secrets Revealed!

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White, 23, has wowed snowboarding fans—and millions who didn’t know they were snowboarding fans—with his daredevil double corks and other wild moves. But just as entrancing is White’s lush mane of natural red hair. How does he get it just that fabulous? “My secret is an awesome new product – called water,” White deadpans. “It’s pretty curly on its own. I just use the hotel shampoo and conditioner and wash it every other day, because otherwise it gets huge. Two days of snowboarding in a helmet helps — it looks better dirtier.” Right now, a friend trims his hair for free every two months. But the stylist does more thinning than shortening. “I feel I’ve lost something if I cut it short; but I need to take the weight off.” Though he has tried to brush off the nickname “Flying Tomato,” he has no plans to change his signature color. “If I did, I’d go black to make it Danzig-looking,” he says with a laugh, referring to the punk band. “Black hair looks OK with freckles.” –Lorenzo Benet

OMG! His hair is just amazing! It is pretty bad that a girl would like hair like a guy has! I am so jealous. He is such a good looking guy and I congratulate him on his win. Way to go!

I love Shaun and his hair. But BS he keeps it so beautiful with hotel shampoo. He is doing some high end product to help the curl relax and form that beautiful and defined curls.
