Ellie Goulding: 'Hair represents me'

Ellie Goulding loves the adrenaline high she gets out of a strenuous boxing session.

Ellie Goulding feels "strong and healthy" when her hair is in top condition.

The 29-year-old pop star's luscious blonde locks make her stand out in a crowd, so it doesn't come as a surprise that she strives to keep them in good form. For Ellie, her hair helps boost her mood and confidence.

"My hair represents me," she explained to Britain's Hello! magazine. "When it looks strong and healthy, I feel strong and healthy. It has become my signature and I'm okay with that. Now, thanks to the new conditioner technology, I just have to maintain it. There could be worse things to have to do. I love showering and getting clean after an intense show or workout."

With such dedication to her tresses, Ellie makes the ideal ambassador for haircare giant Pantene. She describes the collaboration as the "perfect partnership" and has always relied on the brand to look after her signature tresses.

There are other areas of her appearance which the Burn singer pours attention into as well, namely her toned physique. Ellie often shares snaps of herself in the gym on social media and gives followers envy with her defined abs.

"I've been boxing for two years now," she said of her exercise regime. "It is hard because it requires skill, focus, strength and dedication. But the adrenaline of hitting pads as though they're people makes you work harder than perhaps you would just weight training. I would never use it unless absolutely necessary, of course..."

The British beauty tries to squeeze in a workout session every day of the week, taking the occasional day off if she's done anything "crazy". She also enjoys a spot of yoga, running and jump training to keep things varied, and boost her flexibility.
