Jennifer Aniston revealed her hair care secrets to gorgeous locks on Wednesday in an interview with "ABC News." Aniston’s key to healthy hair is simplicity.

One would be hard-pressed to find an actress with as famous a hairstyle as Jennifer Aniston. Since her “Friends” days, the renowned “Rachel” has taken on a life of its own, especially after Aniston’s friend and stylist, Chris McMillan, admitted to creating the trend when he was high. It’s no wonder Living Proof snatched up the 45-year-old to partner in its hair care products.

Jennifer Aniston's locks once again made news with her latest foray into short hair last fall. Her Instagram photo of an edgy bob drew questions after an apparent bad reaction to a keratin treatment. According to "Good Morning America" the new short style has led to a simpler approach to hair for Aniston, which includes shampooing her hair every other day or every three days. Of course, Jennifer Aniston declared Living Proof hair care products aid the outcome of great hair.

I don’t get a lot of product build-up with Living Proof and my hair doesn’t get dirty straight away. I wash my hair with No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. And with PHD Styling Treatment I can air-dry and style my hair in 10 minutes, when it used to take 25 minutes.

Why all of the Jennifer Aniston media blitz about hair lately? Living Proof has launched a new ad campaign where Jennifer Aniston is seen answering hair care questions from a “scientist.” The one-minute plus video to test “your hair IQ” has true or false responses to common hair queries, however, since the responder is a “scientist” and not a stylist, little depth was given to clarify certain answers. For instance, Aniston asks, “True or false, cutting your hair makes it grow faster?” Eric Spengler, the Living Proof scientist, answers, “That’s false. Cutting your hair has no impact on hair growth.” Well, at least he learned to restate the question, but there is more involved in that answer.

Hair growth is determined by age, genetics, maternity and health, as has been written here repeatedly. While a haircut doesn’t determine hair growth, it does aid in having healthy hair. If one doesn’t get regular haircuts, the ends split up the strand, which eventually requires a good amount taken off for healthy hair. Frequent trims avoid this, and thus the hair appears to grow, but the client just doesn’t need as much cut. Many believe haircuts thwart hair growth, and that simply isn’t true either, a fact that was touched on when Aniston and the Living Proof scientist discussed the rate of hair growth.

To have locks as lovely as Jennifer Aniston, you don’t have to use the Living Proof products she recommends, or you could, but ask your licensed professional what he or she prefers for you. Aniston is correct, infrequent shampoos are optimal for a healthy head. Try a dry shampoo such as Kerastase Powder Bluff to keep the hair and scalp fresh in between washings.
