Christina Ricci cuts her own hair

Actress Christina Ricci remains a fan of Sebastian Potion 9, a hairstyling treatment she has been using since she was a teenager.

Christina Ricci shuns regular visits to the hair salon in favour of cutting her own locks.

The actress will always be remembered as having jet-black hair in her breakthrough role as Wednesday Addams in 1991's The Addams Family.

But Christina has ditched her black tresses in favour of lighter hues of late, and has shared that she actually likes to trim her mane herself.

"I also cut my own hair," she told Into The Gloss. "I use a hair cutting razor - I think that's what it's called? I practiced a good amount."

The 37-year-old was last seen in period drama Z: The Beginning of Everything, in which she played American socialite and writer Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald. For the part, Christina rocked a curly, blonde hairstyle and she admits that she is very careful to try and protect her hair from styling damage.

"I'm obsessed with this guy Christophe Robin, he makes the best products. The Cleansing Mask is so good, I could wash my hair with it every day and it wouldn't strip it. When I was doing press for Z: The Beginning of Everything, (the stylists would use) all of this different stuff and it would make my hair so gross, so I'd use the Cleansing Mask every day with the Regenerating Mask or the purple one for blondes."

As the actress has very dark hair naturally, she relies on colourist Lena from Suite Caroline for her blonde shade. And while Christina is open to trying lots of new hair products, she remains a big fan of Sebastian Potion 9 - a styling treatment she has been using since she was 13 years old.

“It's a leave-in conditioner treatment and it's the best product ever,” she explained. “It dries hard, and so if your hair is damaged or frizzy, it doesn't let the frizz happen. Then when you run your fingers through it just holds whatever position it dries in."
