Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more interesting with Robert Pattinson, they pull you right back in with a new hair revelation. Known for his quirky humor and off-the-cuff remarks, the actor/writer/director/musician/model/partially-recluse has always had a way with his hair, which he’s been willing to show off over the years in increasingly unique ways. Whether he’s had a style revelation or just decided to try something new, knowing exactly what products he uses can be a little tricky.

New Fad Or Just A Niche Interest?

You may recall that not too long ago, the 25-year-old was in the vanguard of a hair trend that saw him sport an elaborate ponytail made famous by the John Wick film series. While a lot of people may have had a brief fling with the ponytail, it’s not really been a part of his personal stylings since then. However, when you look back over his entire filmography, you can see that he’s been experimenting with different hairstyles and this is definitely a case of a trend that he’s adopted and then grown out of.

For those that have followed his career closely, they may have noticed that he’s been playing a character with an afro or, in one of his more recent films, a full-blown Mohawk. While he’s always been a bit of a character actor, going all-out in character is something that he’s started doing more lately. So, it could be that he’s taken the opportunity to examine his own identity through his characters and decided that he wants to experiment with a style that represents that identity.

For whatever reason, he’s decided to go big or go home and it seems that he’s chosen the latter. While most people would consider tattoos a serious matter, for the influential English actor, they could be a stylistic choice that he’s grown out of (at least partially). For the time being, let’s just call it a style revelation and embrace the unbridled creativity that is Robert Pattinson.

Product Review: Dry Shampoo

When you think about it, a good hair day isn’t one that comes with washing your hair and drying it with a hairdryer. It starts way before when you decide to wash your hair at all. One of the key elements to having good hair is caring for it with the right products and the right techniques. When you get your hair done at a beauty salon or barbershop, they will usually give you a pewter-clad box that will contain all the hair care products that you need for the day. Normally, this will include a dry shampoo that you can use to touch up your hair before leaving home. As we’ve established, Robert Pattinson isn’t really one to follow the trends, but rather to lead them, and this is definitely apparent when you look at the wide variety of hair products that he uses.

Since he has such a large variety of products that he uses, we’re going to take a look at each one and tell you what makes it special and whether or not you’ll want to try it.

Dry Shampoo

  • Pioneered by Serge Kaplan, the founder of the Serge Kaplan Group, dry shampoo is a quick, temporary solution for touch-ups on the go.
  • Usually made of nylon or polyester, it provides a protective coating while allowing you to keep the style of your choice.
  • Since it’s non-woven, it’s easy to remove with a few sprays of water.
  • A good dry shampoo can last for up to three years on your hair.

Dry shampoo is ideal for touch-ups on the go. It’s made of plant-based products, so it isn’t harmful to the environment. As it’s non-woven, it’s easy to remove with a few sprays of water. Many people also use it as a cheap, temporary fix for hair damage, so it has dual functionality.

It’s important to purchase a good quality product, because cheaper dry shampoo is often laced with harmful chemicals. Some of the more common and harmful additives found in cheap, commercial dry shampoo include camphor and benzophenone. It’s always a good idea to look out for brands that use naturally-derived products, and those that promote environmentally-friendly practices.

Curl Activator

When you’re driving down the road and noticing that your hair is getting a bit frizzy, there’s no need to panic. While it can be frustrating, particularly when you’re in a hurry, it’s not a problem. All you need to do is remember to remove some of the built-up hair oil with a curl activator. Like the dry shampoo, the curl activator is also an easy product to overlook when shopping for hair products. It’s always a good idea to keep a travel-sized version in your purse or bag, just in case.

As the name would suggest, the curl activator is supposed to make your curls more voluminous. It does this by penetrating the cuticle in search of natural oils. The best part is that it works without the use of heat, so it’s ideal for use in places where heat is undesirable, such as in an airplane or an oven.

Detangling Cream

If your hair is getting a bit unmanageable as you get older, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Even if you’ve had beautiful, silky hair all your life, as you get older, itches and knots become a problem. While there are plenty of creams and serums on the market that are meant to solve this issue, none of them work perfectly and sometimes they even do the opposite of what they’re supposed to. If you’re looking for a quick, temporary solution, you can try using a detangling cream.

Just like the other products on this list, the detangling cream is also made of plant-based products and does not contain any harmful chemicals. It is designed to reduce the friction that comes from rubbing your hair and giving it the shine that you really want.

Hydrating Cream

If you’re starting to notice a trend throughout this review, it’s that the hydrating creams are similar to the detangling creams in that they’re both made of plant-based products. This makes them ideal for those that suffer from dry, damaged hair and need a bit of an upgrade. Just like the other products on this list, the hydrating cream is also a quick, temporary solution that will leave your hair looking richer and healthier.

The major difference between the two is that the detangling cream goes deeper into the hair shaft, while the hydrating cream is more on the surface. When you apply the hydrating cream to your hair, it feels almost like you’re applying styling cream to your strands. This is because the hydrating cream is made of glycerin and water, which are the same two things that make up styling cream. Just like styling cream, the hydrating cream will leave your hair smelling good and feeling healthy.

One of the main reasons why we love hydrating creams so much is because they make it easy to apply the right amount of styling product to your hair. If you overuse creams and serums, you risk making your hair weak. The best thing about the hydrating creams is that they allow you to easily build up the necessary layers, as you age, so that your hair looks richer and healthier.

Key Takeaway

As you can see, this is a varied list of hair products that Robert Pattinson uses and/or loves. Naturally, we’d expect this from the man who was once described as having a “wardrobe as big as a wardrobe,” but it’s still an interesting look at the different products that he uses, depending on the situation. Dry shampoo is always an easy product to throw in your purse or bag, whenever you need it. If you’re in a rush and don’t have the time to wash and dry your hair, then the curl activator is the product for you. It helps to make your curls more voluminous, which in turn makes them look bigger and more attractive. Finally, the last two products, the hydrating cream and the detangling cream, are great for anyone that suffers from dry, damaged hair. They make it easy to leave your hair looking healthy and full of life, even when you’re on the go or in a hurry. In the end, we can’t thank Robert Pattinson enough for continually surprising us with new ways that he expresses his creativity through his hair.
