Pitbull And John Travolta’s Bromance Started With Hair — Or The Lack Of It

While John Travolta’s elephant-trunk hairstyle had fans going wild in his role as Danny in the ‘70s classic “Grease,” he’s now sporting a bald look — and it’s all because of one Latinx megastar: Pitbull.

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with guest-host Lena Waithe, the actor announced that he decided to shave his head after the 305 cubano motivated him to do it.

“Both he and my family encouraged it,” the 65-year-old actor said of the “Timber” singer.

The hairless Hollywood legend went viral in January of 2019 when he first revealed his look to the masses in an Instagram post alongside his daughter, Ella Bleu.

I hope everyone had a great New Year!

“Your hair was pretty famous. You had this, like, beautiful mane. And then you guys posted this picture … people kind of went a little crazy, it went viral, were you expecting that,” Waithe, 35, asked the “Hairspray” star.

Somehow, the celeb who was widely beloved for his dark brown locks throughout his career, didn’t think changing up his aesthetic would prompt a reaction.

“No! It’s just a haircut,” he said.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I love and miss you

“The last time I went this viral was when I mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars,” he continued, referring to his gaffe as a presenter at the awards ceremony in 2014.

Travolta said the switch-up was “easier” than most people thought it would be because he had cut his hair before in his role in the 2010 film “‘From Paris with Love.”

“I got used to it. So it wasn’t a total shock,” the actor said.

Travolta, who was on the late night show with Ella Bleu to promote their movie together, “The Poison Rose,” said the best part of going bald was the community that came from it, particularly his new friendship with Pitbull.

“I became friends with Pitbull — you know all of us guys who do this have got to stick together,” he said.

“The Poison Rose,” a crime thriller about a heavy-drinking detective’s attempts to discover the truth behind the murder of a college quaterback, hits theaters Friday, May 24.

Users say Ouidad’s Double Detangler is perfect for those with curly, thicker hair. The brush features double rows of comb teeth and is perfect for tackling tangles without being too forceful or rough.

“This is the best comb that I’ve ever used for detangling my hair. It detangles with ease and with a speed that I’ve never experienced and I couldn’t be happier. I have a range of 3c, 4a and 4b hair and this comb handles all of it with ease.” Amazon.com user.

Denman Brush

Curly Hair brush

An absolute classic, the Denman Brush has long been touted as the fairy godmother of brushes. Loved by 3c to 4 hair types the Denman brush has been known to dentangle its way through curlier hair pattern with a stroke of the brush.

Ladies and Gents do yourself a favor and get you a brush! My boyfriend is so shocked at my curls too! Honestly, I had never thought I could have a consistent curl pattern. The pics are 6 weeks apart but my curls never were this defined as they are with the Denman brush. I had 3B but now I am full 3C hair curl type.

I didn’t remove any rows and combined my curls with Shea Moisture Hair smoothie and some eco gel to style. Watch some youtube videos to help see how to properly brush hair out. I sectioned it into layers and even tried out bangs for the first time since the curls are so tight and I am seeing consistent coils!” – Amazon user.

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Astrid Stawiarz / Stringer

Sure, there might be more things peskier than split ends but there’s no doubt they’re a universal issue that haunts us all.

Thanks to dryness, age, heat styling, and even just existing, split ends are a real issue that people around the globe have to deal with and manage every day. As the oldest part of our hair strands, ends need a very particular type of special care. Particularly if you ever want to avoid having those splits ends work their way up the entire shaft of your hair and wreak even more havoc. While snipping off those ends are a surefire way to fix a split end problem, if you’re trying to grow your hair out there are ways to attempt to keep your ends from splitting in the first place.

We scoured the internet for top reviewed split ends. Check out what we found below!

Oribe’s Split End Seal

“My stylist gave me a sample of this to use on my thick, fine, curly, highlighted hair after a particularly strenuous bleach session. I was so impressed, I bought this when the sample ran out.

Any good stylist will tell you, it’s pretty much impossible to actually seal an end once it’s split (beyond making it appear to be sealed for a short period). But it is possible to return moisture and other nutrients to hair that is damaged or close to splitting. And this product is very good at doing that. It seals the hair to keep the good stuff in and protect against future damage from the environment. A little goes a long way if you apply it to wet hair, before applying any other styling products. Seriously, I got six uses out of the sample. It’ll take me a while to run out of the full size bottle.

This stuff really does work miracles on dry hair. The only way I’d ever be able to get rid of all my split ends would be to just shave my head. But that doesn’t mean my hair isn’t healthy. More than one stylist has pointed that out to me. That wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t use quality products like this one.” – Amazon review

Rita HazanTriple Threat Split End Remedy

“My hair deals with a lot of heat styling and hairspray so the ends get a little worse for wear. I’m growing my hair out for my wedding next year and I’m a law student, so I can’t afford to be getting regular haircuts at this point. I got a sample of this product and can’t believe what a difference it made in my hair. I can no longer see the split ends and my hairstyles pretty effortlessly now. I just ordered the full size.”- Sephora review

Moroccanoil Mending Infusion

“LOVE LOVE LOVE Moroccanoil Mending Infusion! This product works great on the ends of my hair that definitely need to be trimmed! It fuses the tips of my hair after styling so I can go longer w out a trim. It makes the ends look healthy & the smell is terrific! I use all of the Moroccanoil products & so far they are working great for me! The only negative thing I can say is that the bottle is made of thick glass which the actual quantity of the product is less than it actually appears to be. However, it takes very little product for the ends of the hair! The product still deserves 5 stars! IF for any reason these products don’t work for you, it has to be that they have been returned “as no longer needed” & possibly tampered with by a dishonest consumer. Amazon will always make things right from my experience. From reviews I’ve read in the past, I felt I needed to add this comment as I have very difficult hair, coarse, frizzy, & unmanageable unless I use an excellent product like ‘Moroccanoil products’!!”- Amazon Review

PATTERN Jojoba Oil Hair Serum

“Love it! Smells like lavender, ahhhh. I love that you can use this on your scalp and hair. It locks in the moisture from the Pattern leave-in so well for super soft and hydrated hair. I’m so happy with everything from this line. I do believe this jojoba oil is a stand out product as well. You can use it in so many ways. I will continue to purchase this and pretty much everything else from this line. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross, you hit the nail on the head!! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this line.” – Sephora review

Design Essentials Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum

“My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had dRead more about review stating Love this strengthening serum!” – Site review
