Jennifer Aniston loves to test her hair products on her friends. The actress is so into persuading her pals to play guinea pig that she considers them her “Barbie dolls,” reported People.
After years of having her fans plead with their own hair stylists to give them Anston’s lovely locks, Jennifer has become co-owner of the Living Proof line of hair products, with which her own hairstylist and pal Chris McMillan is helping.
With close friends from her acting career such as Courtney Cox as well as her yoga teacher, Aniston enjoys experimenting to see how her products might benefit different types of tresses.
“Chris and I usually get samples like six months before so we get to try it out and see how it lasts over time and then give feedback for it,” explained Jennifer. “It’s so much fun; it really is a wonderful thing to be a part of.”
Aniston revealed that her favorite guinea pigs are Courtney and Mandy Ingber, who trained Jennifer to use yoga for balance and flexibility.
“They allow me to sort of use their hair, they’re like Barbie dolls. Courteney has gorgeous hair, and Mandy’s is really curly so she loves the No Frizz line. Plus, everything smells incredible, that’s my other thing that I love about these products. For me that’s always a big thing, that it isn’t too fragrant-y or perfume-y. It’s so fresh and so light, so incredible.”
However, although Jennifer enjoys playing with pals’ hair, don’t go to her for help with hairy problems.
“I so do not want to be the poster child for anyone’s hair problems. I would just say use Living Proof and you’ll be great to go,” she advised.
Aniston also praised Living Proof for its science-backed line, noting that she’s a fan of their night care product called Night Cap Overnight Perfector.
“I’m in love with it. When they said to me,’Okay, you put it on your hair at night.’ And I said, ‘So I’m going to put a cream on my hair right before I go to bed, and I’m supposed to wake up loving it?’ And honestly, I don’t know what they did or how they did it, but I woke up in the morning and my hair was so shiny and vibrant and the color looked great and it wasn’t dirty or greasy and there wasn’t a spot on my pillow. I don’t understand it. It’s kind of like magic.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Aniston also believes in working out without worrying about sweaty hair. While remaining devoted to daily workouts, from cardio to yoga, Jennifer has developed her own philosophy that contradicts those who insist on a thorough hair-washing session after each bout of exercise.
“I go every two to three days easily without washing my hair. A little sweat in the hair is nice. It’s like a little product. You just blow it out with your fingers and it’s actually just fun.”
Living Proof also contains information about how to use their product line to have a Jennifer-Aniston style perfect hair day. Photos of the actress as well as styling detail are included.
As for what’s in Jennifer’s future? Aniston swears she will never ever get a pixie cut, she told Fashionista.
“Chris has that thing where he’s like Edward Scissorhands. He just sees hair and he wants to cut it. He would love for me to go… he wants to just cut it all off, kind of like a pixie, which I will never do,” she declared.
