Browsing around the T.V. just now, when Padma Lakshmi popped up on the screen touting Pantene's new Nature Fusion line. Exciting! I think its great to finally have a desi has the face of a international brand!! While Aishwarya's L'oreal mascara commercials used to come on a few years back, they have all but disappeared sadly.
Check out this video of Padma Lakshmi which features a behind the scenes look of the making of the commercial for the Nature Fusion Line. She looks amazing.
In the interview, Padma says "Hair is a huge deal for Indian women. When I go on a plane, I actually will rub oil into my scalp and then into my hair and then do a tight braid. And so that keeps it from getting dry and frizzy or, you know, flyaway and also helps with static later, when you wash it."
Thanks, Padma, for that great tip!!
Also, apparently, one of the main ingredients in the Nature Fusion products is the Cassia plant, which is a plant native to India. Nice to have learned something new today!
And here is the actual commercial!
