Victoria Pendleton - who scooped a gold and silver for cycling during this summer's Olympic Games - is the face of Pantene Pro-V's new Smooth & Sleek range and was recently seen honing her dance-moves for the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Here, Victoria shares her tips for healthy hair - and reveals how she keeps those locks so glossy...
How important to you is having healthy hair?
Having healthy looking hair is really important to me and I always like to look and feel good on and off the bike. Pantene Smooth & Sleek range helps give me gorgeously healthy hair every day!
You’re an athlete and spend a lot of time outdoors – do the conditions affect your hair?
Training outdoors all the time means my hair is definitely affected by the seasons, heat and humidity in the summer affects my hair just as much as the cold winds and rain do in winter. Frizz is always an issue! That’s why the new Pantene Smooth & Sleek range is perfect for me all year round.
What is your number one haircare tip?
My best hair care tip would be... Choose a haircare range that is right for your hair structure. Working with Pantene has made me realise the importance of this, and it really does make a difference.
Who is your beauty icon?
My beauty icon would have to be Helena Christensen – for all-round looks and beauty.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Getting ready in the mornings for me can vary - I have learnt to get ready very quickly due to having early training sessions.
Which beauty product could you not live without?
The beauty product I couldn’t live without right now it is the Pantene 24hr Frizz Fighter; it works like magic on my constantly-washed helmet hair!
How do you prepare for a night out?
For a night out, I try to choose my outfit carefully in advance so I have lots of time to do my hair and make-up. However, sometimes it’s a quick change after a shoot and make up in the taxi situation so I am very adaptable!
I love Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream or Neom Organics Moroccan Blush Rose Body oil for some real indulgent pampering.
