As a supermodel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the purveyor of many enviable physical traits. But we’ve always been particularly besotted with her impressively luscious long locks. Over her years in the spotlight, Huntington-Whiteley has cultivated a signature hairstyle that she rarely deviates from and it’s easy to understand why – if it ain’t broke, don’t cut or colour it, isn’t that the saying?
But outside of regular appointments with her LA-based colourist Lorri Goddard, Huntington-Whiteley puts in the work to keep her mane in top shape. She recently shared her hair routine on her beauty website Rose Inc. and it’s clear she’s committed to proper care when it comes to her long blonde tresses.
The Transformers star also shared the hair care products she swears by to keep her locks looking fresh each day. We’re inclined to adopt anything that Huntington-Whiteley loves, so let’s take a closer look at every product in her hair care routine, shall we?
She starts with this cult classic scalp scrub to buff away build-up
“This is a product from Christophe Robin called the Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt,” Huntington-Whiteley says. “Because I have a lot of product put in my hair for work, I experience a lot of build-up. This leaves the hair feeling really light, very clean [because] the sea salt acts as an exfoliant.”

She uses a hair mask once per week to help with hydration
“I find my hair often goes on the drier side so masking at least once per week, or even twice per week is a must for me,” Huntington-Whiteley explains, sharing that Gloss Moderne’s Clean Luxury Masque is her current fave. “It’s really going to give you that ‘instant gratification hair’ that’s what I always call it.”

She enlists an overnight hair serum to nourish dry ends
“So, this product is one of my all time favourites. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this product before in any of my videos but this is Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue,” Huntington-Whiteley says. “It’s a nourishing and taming overnight serum. It smells incredible, it’s got Japanese red camellia in it, and I like to apply this either on dry or damp hair.” The model also mentioned that the product was essential to restoring her damaged post-pregnancy locks.

She now swears by a scalp treatment
While Huntington-Whiteley admits she once didn’t know what the point of a scalp treatment was, she was soon converted. “Essentially it’s going to nourish your scalp, bring balance to your skin and it’s also going to strengthen your hair from the roots,” she said of her Rahua treatment of choice.

This product is the key to her sleek low-bun looks
“This is a great styling oil if you want that wet-look effect,” she explains of her favourite Wella product. “I often like to apply this when I do my centre-part bun, just smoothing it over the hair. A little bit of this goes a long way,” she adds.

She likes her dry shampoo to feel a little fancy
Huntington-Whiteley was able to get her hands on the coveted collaboration between OUAI and cult fragrance house Byredo. “I just love this because you get the best of both worlds – the best of OUAI and the best of Byredo in one product,” she explains. It’s currently sold out (sob!) so be sure to sign up to the waitlist for when stock returns.
