Demi Moore shares her hair secrets and says she won’t cut her hair short again

Actress Demi Moore is now well-known for her tumbling raven tresses. However she was once equally well-known for shaving her head for 1997 film G.I. Jane, in which she portrayed a woman given the opportunity to earn a place in the elite Navy SEALs training facility.

Moore, 59, shared in an interview with People magazine that although she used to love regularly changing up her ‘do, she’d now rather keep her long locks intact and only has “regular, tiny trims”.

“I’ve done everything to my hair. I’ve shaved it. I’ve dyed it. I’ve had a bob. When I’m not working, I try to do as little to it as possible,” she told People. “It’s stressful even having someone touch it. If I don’t have anywhere to go, I don’t put heat on it—I just try to let it do its own thing. And I don’t wash it too often.”

Moore admits she’s not keen to cut it and at this point in her career she’d be “hard-pressed” to pull off another dramatic hair change.

“So if they really need my hair different, they can give me a wig.”  She also pointed out it’s “also not as clear how it would grow back!”

The actress says keeping her locks is a way to reject outdated notions about age and women with long hair.
“I remember hearing someone say that when women get older, they shouldn’t have long hair. And something about that stuck with me,” she says.
“Like who says? It made me feel like, well, if it can grow and it’s not unhealthy, then why shouldn’t we? I’m not comfortable with rules that don’t seem to have any real meaning or justification.”
To keep her stunning locks in great shape with plenty of hydration and shine, Moore told People she favours Kevin Murphy’s Hydrate Me Rinse conditioner.
“When you have long hair, you need a [conditioning product] that’s not too heavy,” she shares. “I love Kevin Murphy.”
The star has recently marked the arrival of a new project, her first-ever apparel collaboration, working with inclusive swimwear brand Andie.

Moore told People she has an extensive swim collection of her own, of between “400 and 500 swimsuits,” including a number of vintage designs, all of which helped inspire her work with Andie.

The Demi Moore x Andie collection includes 10 brand new swimwear styles including plunging one-pieces, classic bikinis, high-waisted two-pieces and swim skirts.
