Flying Tomato's Hair Secrets


Pretty much nothing can get me interested in the Olympics. However, Shaun White, the two-time Olympic gold medal winning snowboarder, recently talked about his famous red locks in an interview with People magazine, so that kinda got my attention. The “Flying Tomato” says, “My secret is an awesome new product – called water. 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.”

Shaun says that a friend trims his hair for free every two months, but does more thinning than cutting the length. “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 “Flying Tomato” nickname, Shaun has no plans to change his red color. “If I did, I’d go black to make it Danzig-looking,” he says with a laugh. “Black hair looks OK with freckles.”
