Celebrity Health - Teri Hatcher

Hollywood star Teri Hatcher gives us the lowdown on her natural approach to health and beauty

From Lois Lane to Susan Mayer, acclaimed Hollywood actress Teri Hatcher has played some truly memorable acting roles. Her breakthrough performance was in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, in which she appeared from 1993 to 1997. She then went on to appear in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, as Bond Girl Paris Carver. But she is perhaps best known for her role as Susan Mayer in the hit TV series Desperate Housewives, which ran from 2004 to 2012, and for which she received multiple awards, including the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

In 2018, Teri launched her YouTube channel, Hatching Change, which features videos aimed at helping viewers to ‘eat better, feel better and live better’. The channel was inspired by her own personal quest to discover what ‘living healthily’ means. And in June this year, Teri was announced as the global ambassador for New Nordic’s Hair Volume product. “It fits perfectly with my ethos that living positively and healthily are catalysts for healthy behaviour,” she says.

Teri adds: “Being over 50 is time to take stock and really mindfully choose what it is you want out of life – and then making it happen. I always come back to wanting to be able to do things. I want to be strong physically and mentally and stay motivated to make good choices about nutrition. I meditate and I exercise too. I try to do all this regularly so my body can do things long into the future. All of my body needs to be healthy – including my hair.”

By her own admission, Teri’s hair has been through a lot over the years. She explains: “The truth is, I was not blessed with amazing hair. When I was young it was frizzy with strange cowlicks I didn’t know how to manage. When I was pregnant, it was suddenly thick and fabulous, then after my daughter’s birth it thinned away again – and then the peri-menopause rollercoaster started. It now seems to be more settled and I feel I’m the perfect candidate to lean on a vitamin supplement for some hair support, which I’ll treasure and where I can feel the benefit.”

Teri continues: “I’ve been taking the product daily for just six weeks and although it seems a short amount of time to see a difference, I actually think I do. It just really does feel like it’s stronger. I also think the mindfulness of remembering to take it once a day might be trickling down to my other self-care. It’s acting as though it’s a catalyst for healthy behavior and is a great addition to my daily routine, in more ways than one.”

Teri adds: “Of course, I’m not a doctor or hair expert, but I think everyone should make sure they try to get the best nutrients to address their personal needs. It’s really important to me that New Nordic Hair Volume is completely natural. I also use good products in regards to shampoo and conditioner and even the brushes I use are easy on my hair. I try to let it be natural when I can and use heat-protecting sprays when I’m styling it. When you’re over 50, you should talk to your doctor to check out your hormone balance and also ensure you’re getting all the right nutrients.”

Teri’s fame means she’s often on show, so it’s important for her hair to look the part. “My signature Red Carpet is to hire a great hair stylist!” she says. “It really is fun to work with them, so while I typically go for soft curls and just wavy, sexy and natural as a look, it’s fun to switch that up too. Keeping my hair in shape all the time is another matter – up to now, I’ve felt that every day could be a possible hair disaster! However, I believe that beautiful hair comes from within.”
