Heidi Klum shares her hair-care secrets and summer fitness tips with Elle!

Heidi Klum is the new face of Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Thereapy, a brand of shampoos and conditioners that promote healthy scalps for healthier hair.

Heidi swears by the product, saying “Before I signed on, they sent me all the products to try out and I really liked them—they smelled great and made my hair super-soft,” says Klum. “I’ve been using the Damage & Color Repair formulas because I’m not a true blond. My hair gets bleached a lot, and so my ends are a little dry and color-damaged. I especially like the conditioner because it moisturizes without being greasy—the wrong conditioner can make it difficult to do hairstyles with a lot of volume or wave; my hair just goes limp and falls like a soufflé!”

She sat down with Elle Magazine and got Heidi’s hair-care secrets, plus her summer fitness tips!:

You just shot several commercials for Clear. What’s up next?
We’re starting Project Runway soon so we’ve been having meetings about that, brainstorming ideas—who’s going to be on, who the guest judges will be, what kinds of challenges we’ll have for the designers. It’s our 10-year anniversary so we want to make it really special. My whole family and I are moving to New York City in June to film the show. We always shoot in the summertime because that’s when the kids are off from school. So right now, I’m getting ready to pack up—it’s a lot to pack up!

With summertime comes bikini season. Do you have any tips for getting in shape?
I actually exercise more in the summer, when I’m in New York, because my kids don’t have to go to school. When we’re in Los Angeles it’s harder to sneak away for an hour in the morning because I have to get them ready and feed them breakfast, and drive them to school. And then, after they go to school, I go to work. In the summer, though, I have an extra hour to myself. I usually run between 7 and 8 a.m.

Eating healthy helps too. For me, it’s definitely more about food than exercising because I don’t have enough to time to exercise—or maybe that’s just an excuse, I don’t know! If you don’t have a lot of time to exercise you have to be stricter about your diet. That’s what I do. I cut out a lot of carbs—you know, muffins, cakes, breads, toast, and spaghetti—and try to eat more vegetables, lean meats, and fish.

What’s your favorite healthy meal?
I like crispy baked chicken, fennel salad, kale salad—it’s yummy. I also like chicken vegetable soup. I eat that a lot, but without noodles. I’ll cook the noodles separately and add them to the kids’ bowls, but I’ll only eat the soup.

What do you carry with you in your purse, when you’re on the red carpet?
When I go to an event, I’ll take a little container of loose powder and blotting papers. I usually take blotting papers by Victoria’s Secret or Johnson & Johnson—they don’t have to be fancy ones. There are some out there with gold pieces in them and all this kind of stuff, but you really just need something to reduce shine. After I take the sweat and oil off my face with blotting paper, I’ll use this tiny Shu Uemura brush to apply powder. Oh, and I also bring snacks! Snacks are very important because sometimes you’ll sit somewhere at an awards show for hours. Chewing on a Power Bar can be good.

Your hair is in good hands now with Clear, but did you always have such perfect hair?
I’ve been doing this job for 18 years now and there have definitely been some dye jobs that weren’t as good. You know, for example, there was a time when I was really platinum blond. They kept the peroxide on for too long and it literally fried my hair off—I looked like I had a little pineapple on top of my head! That took awhile to grow out. I had to hide it and [use products] to keep it from standing straight up.

Zooey Deschanel signs on as the new face of Pantene!

Zooey Deschanel has just been named the new face of Pantene! The actress follows in the footsteps of other actresses, Naomi Watts and Eva Mendes.

She’ll appear in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, and the actress is said to be “so excited” to be working with the brand.

In her usual quirky rhetoric, the 32-year-old said in a behind-the-scenes video: ‘I am so excited to be a part of the Pantene family. I’m really into hair! So, I just like hair, so… that sounded weird.’

She continued: ‘Being a “Pantene girl” has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid.’

Calling her a ‘breath of fresh air for the brand,’ Kevin Crociata, Marketing Director of North American Hair Care at Procter & Gamble said she ‘perfectly fits the fun side of Pantene’.

He added: ‘Additionally, her signature long, healthy looking hair is right on target for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Collection, a line designed to give breakage protection to help women achieve long, strong hair.’

Created in 2006, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program encourages women to cut and donate their hair so it can be turned into real-hair wigs.

The wigs are then distributed free of charge at American Cancer Society Wig Banks to women across the US who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Miss Deschanel is equally as enthusiastic about the cause, saying: ‘Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that.’

 

Love her!
