If you had 7 minutes to talk to Jennifer Aniston what would you ask her? The folks at Glamour
recently had just that and what did they talk to her about? The answer may be obvious…her hair! As a hair icon and an investor in the Living Proof hair care line, they had a lot to talk about!
Here is what they asked her about her own hair care routine, tips and habits… What's your hair-washing process like?
Jennifer Aniston: Hot water is never good for your hair or skin, so I wash in warm water. It also depends on what day it is. If I’m working then I usually do wash it, because it has to have continuity, but if I’m not working I try to give my hair a break for as many days as possible. After the gym, if I have to be somewhere, I usually just throw some heat on it to dry the sweat and then do a little dry shampoo and a little Night Cap, and I'm fresh as a daisy. I can last a good three or four days without washing my hair, and all of this stuff just kind of keeps it fresh and alive and smelling great.
Speaking of the gym, what's your go-to workout hairstyle?
Jennifer Aniston: I just wrap it up into whatever rubber band or clip I can find and it usually gets thrown on top of my head.
What's your absolute favorite product right now?
Jennifer Aniston: The newest, coolest thing I’ve discovered from Living Proof and its scientific world is the Timeless Treatment. It’s a hair color protector. It goes on and looks like a cream conditioner, but you put it onto your hair from the roots down to the tip. You let it sit for five minutes and then shower and shampoo, which activates the product to seal and protect the color. Then you condition. The concept allows you to keep the richness of your color longer. It’s kind of amazing.
We know you and your longtime hairstylist, Chris McMillan, are best friends. What's the best tip he's ever given you?
Jennifer Aniston: His big advice is the less you mess with your hair, the better. Less is more, don’t touch it, don’t wash it every day, and just let it be. That way, it saves up your hair’s energy for when you have to go to work and be on camera and put it under the hot lights and driers and rollers. It’s really just about doing less and using good products to maintain its health.
Let's talk hair trends. What's one you're loving right now?
Jennifer Aniston: I love a cut from afar, but I’m pretty classic and like to stick to what feels good for me. I don’t usually follow hair trends. I wish I could, but I always feel like I’m trying to be something I’m not. I love seeing these '70s shags, though. They’re all super cute! And I always love a good highlighted head of hair.
What's a hair trend you wish would fall off the face of the earth?
Jennifer Aniston:[Laughs] Pink and green hair could go away. I don’t understand that to be honest, especially the green!
Vacay season is nearly upon us. Tell us, what's your best tip for keeping hair healthy after a day at the beach?
Jennifer Aniston: Well, I love the beach. Whenever I go, I put a hair mask in and throw it in a little bun. It protects it from the sun and gives it a nice deep conditioning.
