Katie Holmes: I never used to wash my hair

Katie Holmes’ sisters had to pay her to wash her hair when she was younger, because she was more than happy to leave it dirty.

The 36-year-old actress is known for her effortless sense of style and usually flawless appearance.

However, Katie admits that when she was younger, she couldn’t stand the idea of having to cleanse her locks.

“When I was a little girl—if I could have—I would have gone a year without washing my hair. I hated it, to the point where my sisters had to pay me to wash my hair,” Katie told “I think after experiencing that, I like to wash it every day.”

Over the years, former Dawson’s Creek actress Katie has experimented with a variety of looks, including a pixie cut and stunning long tresses.

But Katie admits while the short ‘do was easy to manage, she ended up missing her long hair.

“I went with a pixie cut when my daughter was really young,” she said. “It was easy—I mean, it was really easy. But I missed my long hair. Especially after a long winter, all I want is sexy, summer hair. I put my hair in a wig for the MET Gala this year, and people thought I actually cut it again, but no. Sometimes it's tough with the internet—you'll do something different and get dressed up just to get cut down because they don't like your new haircut or something. But that's probably a bigger problem. Either way, if I were to cut my hair again, I wouldn’t cut it so short that I couldn’t put it in a ponytail."
