FOX NEWS - A Japanese baby girl whose impressive full head of hair caught international attention over the summer is now the face of a new Pantene ad — and her mother is sharing the secret to her daughter’s luscious locks.
Chanco became a hair model at age 1 after her mother, Mami Kano, began posting photos of her daughter’s impressive locks on Instagram in May, leaving social media users flabbergasted and wanting the same #hairgoals. The account, dubbed baby Chanco’s “hair diary,” garnered more than 309,000 followers in just months.
“I’m so surprised with the reaction, but also very proud of the praise from many countries,” Kano told People magazine on Tuesday, adding that the child has a “lighthearted smile and luxurious head of hair [that] doesn’t match her age.”
As to how she keeps the child’s hair so voluminous, she said: “Brushing and just let her live as she is.”
On Monday, Chanco starred in Pantene’s new ad alongside Japanese television announcer Sato Kondo, who was praised in Japan for her natural gray hair.
